Mindful Movement: Yoga and Meditation for Inner Peace

I will guide you through a one-hour Gentle Yoga and Meditation practice. This class is for the complete beginner, and meant to calm your mind, refocus your energy towards positivity and inner peace, and gently stretch, strengthen and relax your body.

My Background

Hi! I’m Barri DeFrancisci, and I’m always on the move. From the time I was a young girl, I studied ballet intensively with renowned teachers across the US, Russia, and Israel. I received my BA in Dance at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, and performed professionally with Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company in Israel and Dissonance Dance Theatre in Washington, DC.

I discovered Yoga in high school, and started practicing regularly. It not only improved my balance, strength, and flexibility, but also taught me tools to calm my mind, love my body, and ease the stresses of daily life. I received my 200 hour certification from international Ashtanga Yoga teachers Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann at Miami Life Center. In December 2019, I traveled to Mysore, India, where I studied for an extended time with Ashtanga Yoga Paramaguru, Sharath Jois. I take pride in not only dedicating my life to teaching, but also continually being a student.
