About This Event

In this 3-day retreat, you will have the opportunity to fully engage in yoga and self-inquiry in a reflective and sharing atmosphere. You will explore the coordination of movement with breath to bring attention to the subtle movements of the body, breath, and mind through yoga. We will also listen to Krishnamurti on subjects such as relationship, self-inquiry, and meditation.

Francesca Michelle Gold (she/her) has had deep and lifelong contact with the work of J. Krishnamurti. She lived at the Krishnamurti Foundation in Ojai for a year in 2012 to engage deeply and honestly with her own conditioning. Her curiosity about herself and her quest for truth led her to visit five of the Krishnamurti retreat centers in India where she stayed off and on for two years. Francesca has been teaching Yoga and embodiment practices for over 14 years and has facilitated retreats at the KFA for over a decade. She holds a Master of Arts in Yoga Studies and a Yoga Therapy certification through Loyola Marymount University; her advanced teaching certification is through the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy. Her teaching style is methodical, intuitive, and somatic in nature. Expect to be pointed inward again and again towards practices rooted in direct observation, compassion, and meditation. She was voted best Yoga teacher in Ojai in 2022 and owns a Yoga studio and community hall in town called Breathe Ojai which houses her private practice: Namēnah Yoga Therapy.
