Francesca's work is a blend of science and philosophy of the West fused with contemplative practices and teachings of the East.
Francesca holds a masters degree in Biology and a PhD in neuroscience. Her graduate studies are on the functional characteristics and embodied aspects of intuitive decision making. Most recently, Francesca researched intuitive judgments, emotions and embodiment as post-doc in the philosophy group of Jesse Prinz, at the Berlin School of Mind and Brain.
Her path of personal inquiry is rooted in hatha yoga and zen buddhism and she continues to study buddhist philosophy and mindfulness principles with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield.
After years of personal practice, Francesca also recently began training as yin yoga teacher at Element Yoga Berlin.
