Francesca (Prem Shanti)

Francesca is a Registered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Teacher (RYT500), constantly practicing and studying yoga and meditation. She loves the physical aspect of yoga but she believes we have to go beyond it to find stillness and awareness not only on the mat but in the whole life journey.

With a working sport background as a lifeguard, swim and postural gym teacher, Francesca started working as a full time alternative health care practitioner straight after her three years of professional education in Shiatsu Operator School in Milan. This gave her the opportunity to approach many different techniques that expanded and strengthened her holistic approach, making her method always successful by understanding the underlying connection between body, mind & emotions.

The wellness environment helped her to be more conscious about the self-development that yoga can help to achieve ultimate health. This made her to grow inside the desire to go deeper into the practice until she became yoga instructor in 2016. Her deeper experience and insights of yoga revealed through travelling in India where she learnt deeper aspect of yoga through Yoga Teacher Training Course, Meditation Teacher Training course and meeting many experienced yoga practitioners. Since then, she is using her passion & expertise to use the body as a vehicle for inner awakening.

Merging the power of the Ashtanga Vinyasa style with the precision of the Iyengar alignments and the awareness of breath, she creates a perfect fusion of body, mind and spirit in her classes. She considers yoga as a gift, a beautiful tool to connect with our deeper Self, allowing us to start again to feel deeply rather than thinking. Speaking Italian as mother tongue, English, Spanish and French, she has already taught yoga and meditation in Italy, London, Switzerland and Seychelles before joining Yoga Essence, Rishikesh.

Now she is working through the creation and organisation of YOGA ESSENCE RETREAT for bringing to Europe what this beautiful experience has given her. (www.yogaessenceretreat.com)

Francesca is a careful, considered yoga teacher, who has an excellent knowledge of asanas, their correct alignment and execution. She is a confident and reassuring teacher under whose guidance you will learn a lot and feel in safe supportive hands. I really enjoyed her classes they were well thought out, thorough with the perfect amount of challenge and support.

yoga teacher training review by rinaldo from switzerland

RINALDO Switzerland

With Francesca I had a really positive experience of inner personal grow.
With her I had some private sessions and each of them has been pure pleasure, where I could switch off with everything, having the chance to connect with myself, calm down the breath, feel my own body.
Every day we focused on different part of the body, always starting from a centering phase and a progressive warm up, and thanks to this I have started to know myself with a deeper perception.
After our meetings I have felt really well, physically and mentally both! I would recommend to do the same to all those feel themselves a bit stuck, because of their own posture but mostly due to a frenetic lifestyle.
A cure-all, specially after a long working day!

We had the pleasure of having Francesca as a visiting therapist and yoga practitioner at our Six Senses Spa at the Zil Payson resort in Seychelles.
Her passion and dedication to the practice was evident in her classes and the many compliments received from the guests that participated in these group and private classes.
The variety of classes offered catered for all levels of experience.
