Why Frog Lotus Yoga (FLY)?

I lived in Bali for eight years in the late eighties and early nineties, working as a clothing designer and teaching daily yoga in my living space. Every night I was lulled to sleep by the singing of the frogs in the rice-fields. When I moved to the USA in 1993, I used to tell everyone how much I missed the frogs. I received quite a few frog statues as gifts from friends! When I first leased the studio space one of my closest friends bought me a brass door knocker for the studio and it was a frog sitting on a lotus leaf. Both Frog and Lotus are Yoga Poses, so looking for a name I was prompted by the door-knocker symbol. The name also reminded me of Bali, my spiritual home, which is still very dear to me. Bali is full of lotus gardens and frogs and the name always conjures up beautiful memories.
