Francesca (“Chicca”) is a professional ballet dancer, certified yoga instructor and model. She graduated from both La Scala in Milan and Royal Ballet School in London. 

From the age of 17, Francesca danced full time at Royal Ballet (London), Zurich Opera House and Den Norske Opera & Ballett. Throughout her career she has enjoyed the chance to perform on stages all around the world.

Her interest toward yoga started in 2007, as an hobby, to keep the body healthy and to release physical and mental tensions created from the strenuous ballet regime. 

It was through an injury that yoga became her healing resource and her passion.

She has 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.

In 2017 she received an official authorisation to teach the Primary and Intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga from Manju Jois.

Chicca practiced under the guidance of Sharath Jois, David Swenson and Shelley Washington, Maniju Jois, Philippa Asher, Mark Robberds, Deepika Mehta, Alexander Medin, Mark Stephens and more. She also studied nutrition and is a pilates instructor.

She has assisted her teacher Basia Lipska Larsen and led classes  in Purple Valley Yoga retreat in Goa (Her Primary led is on YouTube under

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. @chiccayoga is known for bringing the balance of discipline and positive energy to students and colleagues in the yoga community.
