Francesca Di Rosso - Personal Biography
I have been practicing Ashtanga yoga for 13 years and taught for over 6 years. I founded The Ashtanga Space Brussels in 2010.
I started studying with Nancy Gilgoff in Goa in 2009. Since then, I have been studying extensively with Nancy in several locations in Europe during her yearly tours and on Maui, Hawaii where Nancy lives. I took part in many of Nancy's workshops and followed two primary series adjustment clinics and one second series adjustment clinic in Okinawa, Japan, acquiring thousands of direct contact teaching hours from Nancy. I assisted Nancy when she came to teach in Brussels in June 2013 and also assisted her during a primary series adjustment clinic in Brussels in 2014. I completed a third series workshop with Nancy at The House of Yoga and Zen on Maui in February 2016.
Moreover, since 2009, I have been travelling regularly to India, mainly Goa and Mysore. I have also been studying regularly with Manju Jois in Dublin, Bali and Berlin and completed both a primary and an intermediate teacher training with him. I am a Yoga Alliance registered teacher (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher E-RYT-200), over the years acquiring thousands of teaching hours in my shala. I consider myself a dedicated Ashtanga practitioner, passionate about my own practice and proud to be able to share this living tradition with my students. I am also a registered craniosacral therapist (Upledger), and I consider craniosacral therapy a perfect complement to the Ashtanga practice.
