We have found that removing the student from the distractions of their everyday environment, and putting them in a beautiful, peaceful place enhances and optimises their learning ability. For three whole weeks, you will be fully immersed: talking, thinking, and breathing Yoga with fellow yogis. During the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Retreat you are taken on a magical journey and given all the nurturing and support you need to be successful.

A Life-changing Experience…

For many students the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training program becomes a highlight in their life and an important turning point. It is usually the beginning of a new and wholesome relationship to life and a budding career doing something they love. The Frog Lotus Yoga Teacher Training Course is a professional, established, comprehensive, well-organised and highly effective training program. For many it is a profoundly transformational and life-affirming journey.

“I warmly recommend both the retreat centre and the course, the 200 hour YTT with Frog Lotus Yoga at Suryalila was everything it advertised and more! The course was intensive in a really good way. It was clear from the beginning that this is a serious course and that the teachers really wanted us to feel confident when we leave, which I think all of us did! There are many different teacher trainings out there and I am really lucky I narrowed it down to this one. It’s hard to explain how three weeks can be so life changing. I left Suryalila feeling sure I will return to the beautiful place. There is something so special about the place and I’m sure everybody who has walked down to the Om Dome in the early morning, gazing up at the stars; watched the sun rise above the mountains after meditation, would agree, not to mention the glorious sunsets. Also there is no question about it that I am already looking forward to attending Frog Lotus Yoga’s Advanced Training in the future. ” – Amanda Homstrom, Vasa, Finland

“After completing the Yoga Teachers Training with you, there was an obvious and immediate impact. Between graduation and my first class as a teacher, my personal practice and appreciation for the yogic lifestyle expanded considerably. Those three weeks opened up such a unique and beautiful relationship with myself, and my understanding of being human has shifted completely. I am so in touch with myself, and it is so obvious and amazing to be able to approach difficult situations without the anxiety and emotion I had before. Your training was superb, and that has really proven itself to me within the last 7 or 8 months of teaching and practicing. I genuinely feel confident and good as a teacher, so thank you for sharing your expertise with me.”
– Bethany Platenella, Margate, New Jersey, USA

“I would just like to say thank you for the wonderful experience I had on the training. Aside from the beautiful surroundings, lovely atmosphere and phenomenal food, I was so impressed with the structure and content of the course. Even when it felt like there was so much work to do, I always felt secure and confident that we would be provided with everything we needed to achieve what we set out to. It was exciting to practice so intensively, and to feel my body get stronger and more able each day. The amount of information we absorbed is really mind-blowing, and the course was, as it should be, doing 200 hours in three weeks, rigorous and demanding. I also really felt there was time and space to listen and be attentive to the physical and spiritual changes that were happening, which was wonderful. “- Caroline Mathias, Leominster, Herts, UK

“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. – Anjalika Bose, Mandala Retreat Centre, Mandrem Beach, Goa, India

“The 200 hour intensive course is exactly that – it is total immersion into yogic living. Early meditation and challenging practice begins each day, followed by a plentiful and nourishing breakfast. The days are comprised of yogic history, learning Sanskrit, philosophical debate, teaching & assisting, anatomy studies and planning lessons. The course is intelligently structured so that you are confidently teaching and assisting small groups before you know it! Vidya is an incredible and inspiring yogi who is inviting you into her home to share with you her vast knowledge and passion. She is efficient and dedicated while being warm and caring. Overall, the course gave me confidence in my own practise, great anatomical knowledge and a solid teaching ability to go out and begin teaching Vinyasa Yoga straight away.” – Joanne Cone, Sheffield, UK
