Odaka Yoga founded by Roberto and Francesca is an original and innovative vision of yoga though respecting a millennial
tradition. A full-spectrum approach to embodying the flow of life with awareness, joy and empowerment. Our belief is living and sharing the yoga practice in and out of the mat, to create synergy and synchronism, promoting self and green consciousness, developing a deep respect for all living creators. Our vision is to create a universal approach and unity of purpose not only within the Odaka Yoga teachers, but also between various schools of differing Yoga styles through an international network of exchanges and events in common. Roberto and Francesca lead their classes through a “liquid” yoga approach, each wave-like move to overcame barriers or limiting beliefs, where emotional flexibility opens students up to endless possibilities for both body and mind. Their motto is: “ We are not here to do yoga, we are here to become yoga”. For Roberto and Francesca yoga is a lifestyle, energy in motion a total idea both on –and-off the mat. This methodology and message has produced a vast transformative potential for people worldwide
