Franceska Lavaggi took her first yoga class at age 19 after a severe car accident left her body badly injured. Despite not be able to do 90% of the moves, Yoga class soothed both her PTSD, anxiety as well as the physical pain from her injuries. Over the course of 14 years, Franceska continued practicing and would eventually take her 200 hour RYT, immersions in Kundalini Yoga, and has dedicated the last 6 years to the Ashtanga Yoga lineage making annual trips to India for studies. Her path began with many obstacles but because of a challenging beginning, Franceska’s teachings are nurturing, studied, and come from a deep well of first hand experience.
Alongside her partner, Clint Griffiths, co-founders of Ashtanga Yoga School Jasper have been facilitating “Mysore” classes 6 days a week in their shala since 2017. It is with great excitement that they are announcing the arrival of a 30-foot Yoga Yurt tucked away on the pristine boreal forest of Jasper East Cabins resort. It has been a shared dream of theirs to practice in the quietude of the woods and they are thrilled at the chance to see that dream realized summer 2019.
