Following graduation in International Business at University in the U.K. and the U.S. I entered the world of finance in the City of London and have worked there for the past 12 years. I understand the feeling of burnout from working in a highly demanding and stressful environment that can have an adverse effect on your mental and physical health. Health and wellness have always been a passion of mine.
Having attended dancing and ballet classes from a very young age, I discovered my passion for yoga when I started working in the city. For me, the yoga class was the only time during the week when I could totally switch off from the outside world. I was able to tune into how my body and mind felt while learning to become more resilient to life's challenges. I wanted to share this experience with other people and decided to embark upon becoming a yoga instructor.
When I have my heart set on something I want to do it properly, so I decided to study the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course first, before embarking on the 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training Course. The qualification is widely recognised as the most prestigious, taking three years to accomplish. This was something that I was able to do alongside my full-time job. The course was an experience I will never forget. It truly changed my life for the better. Once I graduated from the course in 2020, I knew which area of yoga I wanted to specialise in and that was private 1:1 teaching and small group classes.
Having attended large group studio classes in London for many years, I often felt intimidated and unable to fully participate in the class. I felt the class sizes were too big and the ‘one size fits all’ approach did not work well with so many students in the class. This is why I founded yoga with francesca. I wanted to offer bespoke yoga teaching to enable people of all abilities to enhance their yoga experience. I do hope this has piqued your interest if you are contemplating starting out on a yoga journey or wish to enhance your current practice.
with love, francesca x
