Our Studio

For over 12 years, Frog Lotus Yoga has been a home to a great community of yogis and yoginis. There is something that attracts our patrons to the warm office filled with welcoming smiles and engaging conversation; to the multicolored walls and the hand-layed wood boards upon which they place their yoga mats. People have told us of the love for not just picturesque Berkshire scene they behold as they come to daily classes throughout the seasons, but for the classes themselves. If we could share to what we believe is at the center of all this success, it would be our staff.

Our staff are exceptionally trained and certified Yoga Teachers. Many have been in the Frog Lotus Family for a long time. They have studied and trained with Vidya, the founder of Frog Lotus Yoga, and/or with Jennifer, the current director and studio owner as well as the founder of The Triple Gem School of Thai Massage, which is also housed at the studio. As Vidya and Jennifer both hold a high standard of self practice and self study, the staff at Frog Lotus Yoga shows in their caliber of classes that they offer! Moreover, the Frog Lotus Yoga's teaching staff has a greater vision in continually serving the community, to offer individual guidance and tools to fine-tune one's yoga practice. Classes are grounded in safe, practical, authentic, alignment-based asana that are open to all levels, from first-timers to seasoned yogis.

The foundation of Frog Lotus Yoga practice is that of a strong Hatha Yoga Interdisciplinary as handed down by T. Krishnamacharya. The practice branches from there with influences of Ashtanga Yoga, Iyengar Yoga, Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan), and Kripalu Yoga. There are also various forms of meditation taught and practiced at the studio. Not to mention that most of the staff is trained in hands-on assisting and/or Thai Yoga Massage to enhance each students' experience. Every teacher adds their own personality, experience, and wisdom to the classes offered at the studio and abroad.

Feel free browse through our site to check out who is on the roster and who you can connect with. Join our mailing list, Facebook page, or you are always welcome to call the studio to find out more information and plan a visit for a class, private lesson, workshop, or training. We look forward to sharing our practice and home with you!
