Francesca Sanlorenzo

Yoga Nidra

Francesca Sanlorenzo leads our Yoga Nidra Teacher Training She is a senior teacher with over 1000 hrs of Yoga studies. 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. She has written and delivered advanced modules in Yoga Philosophy, Asana and Yoga Nidra. She is currently continuing her studies with the Minded Institute to become a Yoga Therapist. 

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 them according to their needs to embody the practice from within.

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. Fra moved back to Italy in December 2021 for a new chapter of her life.

“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”.
