Yoga defines the manifested Universe as Shiva/Shakti: Shiva being the masculine, contemplative, steady, grounding and still principle. Shakti being the primordial Cosmic Energy, the life force (Prana), the creative sparkle, the Goddess in all Her manifestations.Andrew Wrenn and Francesca Giusti offer you this practice of Hatha Yoga – Pranayama, Asana and Meditation, culminating with a rolling OM chant. We invite you to find the Sparkle and soothe your body/mind/soul with the ancient arts of Yoga.
Francesca Giusti teaches yoga online at www.ekhartyoga.com. practiced the traditional Ashtanga Yoga sequence as taught in Mysore for many years, before embarking in a deeper journey that led her to train with the Yoga Arts school in Australia. The depth of her journey inspired her to share her practice with others, so she has been teaching since 2004 in Italy, Ireland (Cork area until 2012) and now the North of England. Her passion for Yoga began in 1997 and deepened with a daily practice since 2000. Many trainings, retreats, workshops and teachers later, she is very much a student of yoga herself, the delight of the teachings that she shares are from her own experience. She teaches her practice with precision, compassion and integrity. Her daily practice includes Meditation, Pranayama and Asana. She is forever grateful to all her teachers, especially to sparkly Clive, whom she joins every year in his 3 week retreat in India. She moved from her beloved Cork City to the Uk after meeting her now husband, Andrew Wrenn, at her teacher’s yoga retreat in India. Francesca teaches at her studio Pure Yoga Cheshire (www.pureyogacheshire.co.uk), workshop and retreats in the Uk, Italy and other European locations, and online at Ekhart Yoga (www.ekhartyoga.com).
Andrew Wrenn began his Yoga journey as an asthmatic more than 20 years ago. The regular practice of pranayama (breath work) helped him to overcome his condition. Embracing a daily Asana (posture) and Pranayama practice he found a perfect combination for strength, flexibility and wellbeing. He also found that his practice enhanced a balanced and focused mind and an inner depth that he explores everyday in his Meditation. He is a British Wheel of Yoga trained teacher with influences from different backgrounds, having practised with many yogis and yoginis in different styles over the years. He joins his beloved teacher Clive on his annual 3 week retreat in the jungle, where he challenges his fear of aquatic creatures swimming in a reservoir populated by crocodiles! You can find him teaching at his studio Pure Yoga Cheshire in Macclesfield, UK (www.pureyogacheshire.co.uk), leading yoga retreats and workshops in the UK and abroad, and also teaching online at Ekhart Yoga (www.ekhartyoga.com)
