Frances first arrived on the yoga mat to escape from the daily stress of an office job. Yoga became a grounding solace in the days of desks and computers. This realization led her to gain a 200 hour teacher certification at Yogalife. Today, Frances joyfully teaches full time.
Her classes combine flow, strength building and exploration of breath. She believes in details and puts quite a bit of it in her explanations. As a teacher, Frances creates a nonjudgmental space where each person can feel comfortable in the moment and relax. She encourages students to find their own space and practice within themselves. As a student, both on and off the mat, she practices the blend of effort and ease.
Frances also teaches Pure Barre, a ballet barre based work out that uses isometric movements along with stretches to create long, lean muscles. For more information regarding this work out please check out
