Upcoming: Francesca Valarezo Riccardi

March 29-31, 2024

Francesca Valarezo is a yoga therapeutics, breathwork, meditation teacher and shamanism reiki guide that’s been a staple in the NYC yoga and wellness community since she started teaching in 2013. She’s built a loyal, global following from teaching breathwork/meditation/energy healing workshops, classes, and retreats and working with brands like Sky Ting, Alo Yoga, Obé, and Spotify to bring her signature mix of dynamic, yet healing flows and postures to their audiences.
She is the founder of Shamanek, the home of her modern compilation of the ancient teachings, rituals, self care practices, and sacred tools that guided her through her own mental health journey. She also teaches a month-long course that provides a deeper exploration of the practices and tools where participants will learn and experience reiki, shamanic journeying, and journaling to promote self inquiry, healing, and personal growth.

Available Offerings

  • Yin Yoga: Slow down, get still, and go deep. Yin yoga targets the connective tissues – ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of the body while improving energy flow by enhancing the flow of chi in the organs.
  • Restorative Yoga + Breathwork: A luxurious and comforting practice of prop-supported poses held for an extended period of time, to release deeply held tensions and calm the nervous system.
  • Katonah Yoga Flow: Props are heavily encouraged to create archetypal shapes and angles within the body in this flow combining Katonah, Vinyasa, Iyengar, Kundalini and Hatha yoga with Taoist Theory, breathwork and meditation.
  • Shamanic Journey + Restorative Yoga: Take a journey into yourself and experience the power of Shamanic meditation. Restorative yoga is a form of somatic healing that relaxes the body and opens up energy channels. Shamanic Journeying is a form of meditation connecting you to your subconscious mind and to your heart energy. Both healing practices offer great insight and can cause miracles when done together.
