Francesca Sanlorenzo leads our Yoga Nidra Teacher Training.
Ever since Francesca was young, she’s been asking, ‘who are we’, ‘why are we here’, ‘what’s my purpose’? When she found yoga, in her late 20’s, after practicing martial arts for years, it all began to connect for her, as she continued her journey beyond physical practice into self-discovery, on and off the mat. This exploration also informed her creative practice as a photographer as well as her teaching of Art and Design working, for over 15 years, with teenagers excluded from mainstream education and facing challenging circumstances in South East London.
Francesca is a senior teacher; her yoga practice is rooted and began in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition and over the years she explored other styles such as Jivamukti, Scaravelli, Integral Yoga and Yin. These experiences led to a more fluid and non-dogmatic dimension to her practice and teaching of Asana, Yoga Philosophy, Pranayama, Meditation and Yoga Nidra embedded in Yoga Philosophy. Over the last 6 years she has been a Course Leader for one of London’s leading Yoga Teacher Training schools, both on RYT-200 and RYT-500 hour courses, where she has also written and delivered advance modules in Yoga Philosophy, Asana and Yoga Nidra.
Francesca is passionate about guiding students through holistic sequences rooted in the breath to develop physical and energetic strength, flexibility, increased vitality, and a focused mind. She creates a safe space where students of all levels feel nurtured and are encouraged to listen to their bodies in the present moment, modifying according to their needs to embody the practice from within.
“To practice yoga is for me an on-going journey into awakening both on a physical and mental level. Continuing the flow of yoga away from the mat into every present moment of my daily life is an important, challenging and beautiful part of this journey. Therefore teaching yoga is for me an opportunity to expose others to this great science of wellbeing whilst continuing to learn and grow together”.
