I first encountered Francois as one of the models in a book I frequently use, Back Care Basics, written in 199S by Dr. Mary Pullig Schatz who is also a certified Iyengar Yoga teacher. Then he appeared in one of my yoga classes 3 years ago, humbly executing the most beautiful poses and when he introduced himself after class, I asked him, on his next trip down, to teach us. So you have an opportunity to give yourself a great holiday gift to meet and study with amazingly gifted teacher, Francois, who will guide you doing familiar Iyengar style yoga and then introduce you to the deeply relaxing, ancient, healing component of tuning into your body with sound vibrations (Nada or sound Yoga).
Francois began his yoga studies at age 19 with a pilgrimage to sacred sites in India, then a degree, in 1975, from the Ecole Nationale de Yoga in Paris; and in 1976 began extensive studies with BKS Iyengar and Geeta Iyengar during many trips to their Institute in India. He has studied meditation with Thich Nhat Hanh and Ayurveda with Dr. Robert Svoboda. He moved from his native France to Rochester, NY in 1985 and runs Open Sky Yoga , when he is not travelling the world teaching Yoga.
