About Yoga and Fitness Instructor Faranak
Thank you for your interest in enhancing your Yoga practice and improving your wellness. My name is Faranak Parsi (RYT, CPT, AFFA, Reiki II, Mat Pilates, BS/CS), and I specialize in bringing relief for chronic hip, knee, shoulder, and neck joints.
I came to yoga to find work life balance and I realized what I’ve been missing all my life. Yoga is a mind body practice that leaves you feeling completely serene and energized at the same time. I believe Yoga heals people at so many levels. I have personally witnessed many different transformations through Yoga. I want to help people who are working in stressful jobs to find balance in their lives… I’m committed to helping people finding work-life balance. Your wellness will not only impact you, it will also impact your families and how you view life.
In the face of yoga’s growing commercialism, my mission is to preserve the purity of the discipline, and to teach the true essence of yoga to my students. In every class, I teach awareness, form, fun, alignment and mindfulness. My style of teaching is very personable, and I like to customize the practice around each student’s individual needs.
I have 19 years of experience teaching private, and group classes at yoga studios, fitness clubs, spas, companies, non-profits, virtual, yoga retreats, and guest speaker at conferences. My specialty is full joint mobility, and functional strength. if you want to learn yoga, and invite a bit more work life balance in your life, I would love to be your coach and mentor in this awesome journey.
I teach traditional Hatha yoga, inspired by Iyengar Yoga, and Yoga Therapy practices. I believe in using traditional Asana (physical poses), Pranayama (breathing exercises), and Theraputic Chakra (energy centers in the body) practices to transform people from inside out. I specialize in chronic hip, knee, shoulder, and general joint pain. My sessions are usually 1:1, or small groups of 3-6, the sessions are totally customized to client’s needs. I can travel to your home or we can meet at my yoga studio in Los Altos. During each session, I use therapeutic Asanas for targeted joints, breathing, mindfulness, and meditation to create balance in key energy centers in the body.

T.P. from WalkMe Software Company
I have truly enjoyed my experience of practicing yoga from Faranak. Her sharp focus on the correct posturing has allowed my body to really adjust to the essence of yoga practiced and begin to thrive. I have found a new strength, and fitness that I didn’t know was possible. She is a gift as a teacher and I am grateful to be able to learn and practice with her.
My yoga classes with Faranak are super effective. I am getting stronger and stretching out stubborn areas. Faranak is responsive and gives me tailored adjustments when I have physical limitations. She is always professional, kind and through with her classes. I have taken different classes with her and have benefited from each of the styles. Her sense of humor is lovely and makes me chuckle for the rest of the day. Highly recommend her.
