The Frog Lotus Yoga style is a creative, dynamic, and intelligent flow which can be easily adapted to different levels and different tempos. The philosophy is based on the Eight Limbed Path of Patanjali and the asana practice is inspired by the Ashtanga system of Pattabhi Jois, linking poses together with the breath in sun salutations. Over 100 poses will be covered in-depth during the training with special attention to anatomical sequencing and skillful assists. At the end of the training you will be fully qualified to teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga and its variations such as Power Flow or Core Flow, as well as various levels of Hatha Yoga Interdisciplinary classes.
About the Bali Yoga Teacher Training
This three week intensive Yoga Teacher Training is an exceptionally high-quality, fully-comprehensive training. It is also a life transforming experience. It is skilfully led by Alicia Waters within the guidelines of Frog Lotus Yoga given by the founder, Vidya Heisel.
Alicia Waters is an E-RYT500 with Yoga Alliance. Currently residing in the lovely seaside town of Mousehole in southwest England, she leads local classes as well as retreats and trainings mainly in Europe. She has been teaching yoga since 2010 and has been studying and practicing avidly since 2005. She completed a 200 hour foundation training and a 300 hour advanced training in Vinyasa Yoga, both with Vidya Heisel and Jennifer Yarro of Frog Lotus Yoga. Any teacher must also be a life-long student, and Alicia has continued her studies with additional training in mantra, anatomy, philosophy, and more with such modern yoga luminaries as Sianna Sherman, Amy Ippoliti, and Anandra George.
Since the beginning of her teaching career, Alicia has had the great privilege of sharing yoga with diverse students in studios, universities, spas, and community centers all over the globe. Originally from the East Coast of the US, she spent two years living and teaching at Suryalila Yoga Retreat Center in southern Spain before moving to Mousehole in February 2015. She has traveled extensively with Frog Lotus Yoga Teacher Training Programs as faculty instructor.
She and her husband received a Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) as a wedding gift in 2015, and on that fateful day, Alicia’s love of SUP Yoga was born. Only a few months later, she received her SUP Yoga certification from SUPFit, and now loves to share this amazing sport whenever she can.
Alicia is known among her students for her clear, precise instruction and her ability to make the intricacies of anatomy and yogic philosophy relatable to today’s practitioners. She is also certified in the art of Thai Yoga Massage, which brings confidence and a compassionate touch to her physical adjustments. Her recipe for a great yoga class is to combine intelligent sequencing and consistent focus on the breath, then add total self-acceptance, a bit of inspiration, a dash of sweat, and a healthy dollop of humor.
If you are searching for a program where you will receive full support, expert instruction, and lasting inspiration – the Bali training with Alicia Waters and Frog Lotus Yoga staff is the place for you! In this Yoga Teacher Training you will find a safe space to push your own edge in the physical practice, expand your knowledge of the foundations of Yoga, and connect deeply with yourself and your fellow students. You will emerge open-hearted, radiant with confidence, brimming with possibility, and fully prepared to teach!
