About Francesca

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 authorisation to teach the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga from Manju Jois. She has also completed the Ashtanga 500hr RYT TT with Basia Lispka Larsen, 100hr RYT TT Yogicarts with Duncan Wong, 80hrs Dharma yoga wheel TT with Raquel Vamos.

Ashtanga Yoga And Ecology: Transforming The Inner And Outer Environment

Ashtanga Yoga And Ecology: Transforming The Inner And Outer Environment

There is an interdependent connection between our inner and outer world. The air we breathe in is the air plants breathe out, and the air plants breathe in is the air we breathe out. And it is not only the plants that connect us to nature. All forms of life on this planet are interconnected. Consequently, every action we take at this planet is followed by a reaction. The ecological crisis we are experiencing today is a reaction to the inner crisis of humanity. We have lost the sense of integration: integration with ourselves and integration with our surrounding. Instead, we strive for material possession, living in the delusion that happiness and life satisfaction lies in stuff, money, and fame. And in a desperate attempt to solve this ecological crisis, we call for sustainable development, but with no interest to give up on our current consumption-based lifestyles. And this mind set determines the state of today’s environment.

Ashtanga yoga, the eight limb yoga, is a method for bringing stillness and clarity into the mind. This weekend workshop is meant both for beginners who want to establish the ground principles for their own practice in Ashtanga yoga, and advanced students who want to expand their knowledge into a different direction. Besides the physical practice, the workshop includes a series of discussion on the roots of the current crisis, the relationship between the Self and the Nature, and how the practice of Ashtanga yoga could serve as a tool for solving the current crisis.

About Ellen Johannesen

Ellen Johannesen, originally a professional dancer, has practiced Ashtanga yoga for more than 20 years. Her first meeting with Ashanga Yoga took place during a tour to New York in 1994. Since then this has been her daily practice, and Ellen first visited Mysore and Pattabhi Jois in 1997. She is now Authorized Ashtanga level 2 by Sharath Jois, and she has also completed a two-year teacher training with John Scott.

In 2002 Ellen became one of the founders of Ashtanga Yoga Oslo, one of the first studios offering daily Mysore practice in Norway. She was the principal teacher at her own studio, which also offered TTC/apprenticeship in Ashtanga Yoga.

An increasing interest in Buddhist practice brought her to Bylakuppe, South India, where she spent almost three years in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery. Then she moved to Kathmandu where she first completed an education as a Tibetan interpreter before she obtained a Bachelor degree in Buddhist studies and Himalayan Languages at Kathmandu University. Ellen presently works on her Master Degree in Buddhism while teaching Ashtanga Yoga at Pranamaya Yoga, Kathmandu, where she also runs retreats and yoga treks in Nepal. Ellen speaks fluent Tibetan, has a deep insight into god Buddhist philosophy and practice, Sanskrit and Indian philosophy.
