Francesca approached Yoga more than 20 years ago. Since then, Yoga has been a recurring and trusted companion for her. She studied Ashtanga Yoga during her professional training at the National Dance Academy in Rome, which deeply inspired her daily practice of flowing Vinyasa-based sequences. During the four years she lived in London, she experienced Hatha, Flow, Yin & Yang, Iyengar, and Aerial Yoga. In 2020, Francesca qualified as a Hatha Yoga teacher at Yogalife. In 2021 she continued her professional development with the qualifications in Somatic Intelligence: cueing for Vinyasa (50 hrs) and Advanced Yoga Anatomy (100hrs).
Now she is a 200 hours Registered Yoga Teacher at Yoga Alliance, on her path towards the 500 hrs training attended.
The joint practices of dance and yoga offered to her a very fertile ground for enquiry and research on the connection between mind and body, imagery and quality of movement, developing her expertise of meditation-based somatic practices. She found that a regular practice of yoga and meditation has a calming and clearing effect on her mind, easing the process of decision making and sharpening her attention and focus.
Francesca loves sharing her knowledge of yoga through playful and restoring classes. As styles, she mainly teaches Vinyasa flow and Hatha yoga. Her aim is to raise awareness of mind and body state and, through yoga practice, tune into a blissful state of gratitude and connectiveness. In her classes, Francesca encourages balance between physical activity and mental rest and invites her students to become more connected with their bodies and aware about their thoughts. Classes are open level and a broad range of modifications is available to fit students’ requirements.
In January 2022, Francesca opened her Virtual Yoga Studio: Francesca Orlando Yoga with the aim to offer Yoga classes both online and in person in Leuven. For more details about the offered classes click here!
