From Asia to North Yorkshire

Carrie Froggett tells us about the unique experience of teaching Yoga in the North York Moors National Park.

My husband and I found ourselves on the beautiful Yorkshire coast just over a year ago, after years travelling the globe, learning, teaching and exploring Asia. The draw of the moors, the promise of exciting cycle trails and pitching our tent next to streams, brought us all the way from our most recent home of Colombo to Scarborough!

Our yoga company (we go by The Frog Project) came with us. We now regular weekly classes can be found in Scarborough and Snainton, and the rest of the time we can be found running exciting day retreats that combine our passion of cycling and yoga, after school clubs in rural primary schools, free outdoor (summer!) classes and the odd private class too.

The incredible beauty of the National Park is conducive to the teachings of Yoga. I know walkers and hikers tell us about the peace and stillness they find walking in the Moors. Painters and artists have for centuries reflected on the beauty and tranquillity. The same process of connecting yourself and your surroundings together holds true for yoga.


Yoga is a total mind-body experience. Just like getting out into the beautiful countryside, it’s good for your body and your mind. And where better to enjoy this than the beautiful North York Moors?

We’re hoping to expand the business into the wilds of the North York Moors and so always looking for fresh opportunities and people eager to practice and stretch. The future might look like weekend or week long retreats, corporate yoga and wellness days, more in the schools.

So if you’re that way or this way inclined, or think we can work together, get in touch!
