Frani (Shakti) Green is a lifelong student of Yoga. She began meditating on the beach in her teens and then found yoga in 1985. For the first 8 years of her practice, she was a serious student, going to many different classes seeking a path of spirit, community and health.
In 1993, Frani Shakti felt the calling, deeply, to teach yoga. Her studies include many different styles of yoga, including classical Hatha , Kundalini, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Kripalu, Restorative, Yin, and yoga for children. In 2003, after teaching for 10 years, Frani thought it would be a good idea to get certified, and has received several certifications including Classical Yoga 200-Hour Level 1 through Kashi Atlanta.
Frani was gifted the name of Shakti (divine feminine creativity) by Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati, one of her master teachers in the Lineage of Kashi Florida, because of her power within and the energy that she gives to her students and in her life.
Frani’s background in theater and dance is evident in her style of teaching. From beginners to advanced, classes are designed to take students on an inward journey to their own destination of relaxation, tranquility and inner strength.
She teaches gently, yet will guide you through to your strongest edge. Frani was told by one of her teachers that the way she teaches her classes is with a velvet hammer, soft, but with power.
Frani is an organic teacher who teaches all levels. She will tune into the energy of the students that are there, and from there, the class unfolds into magic. This comes from what she sees and feels from the students, so each class is unique. Frani looks forward to practicing with you.
