Francesca is a professional ballet dancer, a certified yoga instructor and a model. She graduated from La Scala in Milan and Royal Ballet School in London. Since the age of 17, Francesca has been dancing at Royal Ballet (London), Zurich Opera House and Den Norske Opera & Ballett. She has been practicing yoga since 2007, initially using yoga as a way how to keep the body healthy and to release physical and mental tensions created from the strenuous ballet regime. It was, however, due to an injury when yoga became her healing resource and her passion. In 2017 she received an official authorization to teach the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga from Manju Jois, as well as many other official certifications. She is also educated as a nutrition and pilates instructor. Yoga has quickly given her many new dimensions to the already extensive experience with physical and mental exercises. Practicing and teaching yoga has been a life changer and become a lifestyle for Francesca. Her passion is to share her experience and knowledge, as well as continuously learning more. @francesca.golfetto is known for bringing the balance of discipline and positive energy to students and colleagues in the yoga community. We asked her to share some of her favourite exercises with us below.
