Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
Manduka is THE ONLY mat I am on. Their commitment to community, sustainability and products that stand up to the energy that challenges props and mats in the effulgence of a practice inspires me. PLUS... The colors make me smile...
-Shannon Paige Schneider
Why Manduka?: The only thing that lies between the sole of my feet and the Earth, whether I practice or live.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice Life the way I am meant to experience it: everywhere, at every moment.
Yoga Style: Hatha, Vinyasa
Franck discovered Yoga by accident, through one of these strange coincidences that Life brings along. As he awkwardly stretched in his first and fateful downward facing dog in Japan, a new direction for his life was sealed, which would take him from the cozy corners of the investment banking industry to the mats of yoga studios around the world.
Franck's practice and teaching are firmly grounded in a dedication to the laws of energetic and anatomical alignment, but also in the dynamics and spontaneity of the Flow. He sees each class, each encounter, as an opportunity to guide students into an organic and transformative experience, relying on prana as the ultimate teacher to invite his students to dance through life.
Franck is a devotee of Tantra, and roots his practice and teachings in an endless sense of freedom and lightness… all this, (almost) exclusively on Manduka’s eKO™ mat.
