    I'm not sure what forces brought me here, but words fail to describe the beautiful experience you've put me through. When I signed up for this course I did not realize that I had signed up for this magical journey. You are a passionate, dedicated and inspiring lady, and you have deeply motivated me to firmly ground my practice in a holistic way. You radiate such warmth and positive energy; you are soft and assertive at the same time; I'm blessed to have had you as my first Guru. Thank you for everything.

    I feel absolutely blessed to have had the opportunity to do my yoga teacher training with Vidya from Frog Lotus Yoga. I can't imagine there is anyone else with as much knowledge, passion and dedication than Vidya who shared her experience and expertise with us with such grace and in such detail. The Yoga practice was incredibly inspirational and refreshing and each day she pulled something new out of the bag to challenge us. In short, the Frog Lotus Yoga teacher training retreats are nothing short of excellent and I will definitely do my 500 hour with Vidya... Can't wait and miss the practice immensely!

    Choosing from the many Teacher Training programs out there was no easy task. Frog Lotus definitely turned out to be the right decision. The program is a guided process that prepares you well to confidently create and instruct your own classes. More than just an education, this was a life affirming experience. It increases your thirst for continuing education and a lifetime of learning the ancient tradition of yoga. Vidya Heisel is generous in sharing her vast knowledge and experience.

    The Yoga teacher Training at Frog Lotus provided me with a sturdy foundation of knowledge on all aspects of yoga. One of the greatest benefits was allowing us to choose which classes to take, so we could tailor the program to fit our yogic interests. The studio itself is a real gem and the instructors are wonderful. The program has well prepared me for an intended career in yoga and provided me with the confidence to do so. I highly recommend this program to anyone seeking to expand their knowledge and deepen their well-being. The lessons I've learned, the friends I've made and the memories that were created are all part of a total experience I will never forget.

    Teacher training at Frog Lotus was all I expected it to be and more. Physically, my body became strong and agile, knowing the poses more completely. Anatomy training bettered my understanding of the body and the benefits of yoga. Mentally, I can see the whole of yoga now, the traditions, the goals, those who have shaped it, even the Sanskrit!! It was an intense and wonderful experience, with friendships that I can never forget. I am more myself than I was before. Thank you, Jaqueline. You are a remarkable teacher and mentor.

    Thank you for an amazing training and all your teachings. I have not missed a day of practicing ever since; your energetic vinyasa flow is part of my daily routine now - thank you for this gift. I also wanted to tell you how strong these 3 weeks made me; the effect is manifesting in my newly found bakasana, parsva bakasana, and salamba sirsasana (would not miss an opportunity to keep practicing the Sanskrit). It's beautiful and humbling!
