what our people say
I am so happy I joined many incredible people from around the World in this truly life changing experience to study traditional Yoga. I've been practicing Yoga asanas for 5 years, and I've never felt so connected to my body. I could not imagine an online course to be organized in such an amazing way. Both Jeenal and Carrie are amazing teachers, very warm, understanding and definitely unique!
I have just completed my 200 hour Teacher Training with Carrie from The Frog Project and Wise Living Yoga Academy. It was beautiful. Carrie is such a wonderful teacher who gives you her entire attention and presence, which you can really feel even though the course is online. She truly is an authentic teacher who lives and breathes yoga and I can’t recommend the teacher training and classes with the frog project highly enough.
This course teaches traditional yoga while being well-grounded in modern life, which is what made me choose to sign up. The training also offers a perfect blend of theoretical and practical. Delving into the philosophy of yoga has been fascinating and the things I am learning are applicable to my daily life and keeping up a regular yoga practice has done wonders for my body and my mind.
The Frog Project classes are great for everybody as each movement and option is explained to suit the individual. I always feel welcome and supported by Carrie's friendliness, gentle approach and humour.
