Private Sessions

Private yoga classes designed to suit any limitations or injuries you may have. A one-to-one yoga session is a great opportunity to break down the fundamentals of more challenging postures, allowing you to achieve a greater understanding, gain confidence to push any fears and limits and find the courage to fly.

Francesca offers private classes in the comfort of your home or at the studio either in Fernie or Calgary. Francesca will tailor your time with her to your personal interests, helping you reach a deeper understanding of what your body needs as well as exploring how your energy can be unleashed for a more fulfilled life.
