Francesca Michelle Gold is a Certified Clinical Yoga Therapist through Loyola Marymount University and the International Association of Yoga Therapists. In addition to her 1,000+ hour Yoga Therapy training, she has studied at the 500-hour level through the Himalayan Institute (founded by Swami Rama) and is completing her Master of Arts in Yoga Studies through Loyola Marymount University (BA Psychology). She has studied Ayurveda in India and the USA. She’s a former world-class level Roller Figure Skater and continues to teach at the ‘Ojai Skate Club.’ She’s lived in India off and on for two years and can’t wait to get back to see her friends and teachers and spend time in a place that is dear to her heart. Francesca’s a beginner Hindi speaker and has learned to read and write Sanskrit. A Yoga Therapy session offers you a chance to sharpen your self-inquiry skills, develop compassion for yourself and your path, learn new ways to approach healing, and engage in preventative care. Having overcome immense mental wellness challenges in her short life (addiction, severe depression, panic attacks, suicidal ideations, PTSD), Francesca offers a down-to-earth/intuitive/clinically informed approach that can hopefully help you get to the root of why you’re booking her for a session.
Yoga Therapy can address a variety of ailments in an integrative way: injury recovery after the acute phase, lessons in posture and proper breathing, developing a connection to a higher power, and much, much more. These sessions bring you to homeostasis and we’ll utilize a variety of tools from the traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda to assess and work with you from a holistic perspective. Sessions are considered both alternative and complementary; they can be blended with any other treatment(s) you are using. I’m trained and educated in the Western medical model and blend knowledge of these approaches, therapies, and perspectives with Eastern understandings on health and wellbeing. LGBTQIA+ friendly.
