With a background in hip hop dance and competitive sport aerobics, Frances first began practicing yoga in 2006 when she started working for lululemon athletica. This became her new passion and way of life. To her, dance is very much an outward expression, whereas yoga offers an opportunity for self-reflection. In 2011, Frances completed her 300-hour Jivamukti Teacher Training with Sharon Gannon and David Life in New York. In January 2013, she became a certified Advanced Jivamukti Teacher and in May 2015 she had the honour and privilege of mentoring the Jivamukti Teacher Training in New York. She is also an ambassador for lululemon athletica for a second time! Frances would like to extend humble thanks and gratitude to her first teachers, Yasmin and Jennifer, her gurus, Sharonji and Davidji, as well as her friends and family who have consistently and unfailingly supported and encouraged her along her path. She draws from experiences and relationships in all areas of her life to bring creativity, compassion, joy and laughter to her classes and teachings.
Francesca’s journey with yoga began when she felt she needed an alternative way to find a balanced life. In 2015, after having tried many studios, she found a connection with Luna Yoga and its community where, soon afterwards, she completed her 250-hour teacher training. It began as a physical practice, which with the guidance of many Luna Yoga teachers, slowly developed into a spiritual one. Through her own practice and training, she has come to believe that finding peace can start on the mat and slowly drift into regular everyday life. She aims to share and cultivate this idea with her students by focusing on connecting the body, mind and spirit.
In recent years, her teachings have found more creativity, fluidity, and mindfulness and include fun challenges for all levels. Her goal is to make asanas accessible to all yogis from beginners to advanced practitioners. She includes fun strength building exercises in her classes but also encourages yogis to trust their bodies, building confidence in the Self.
In her spare time she wanders the world as often as she can, spends every single day with her dog Pepper, and is always looking for an adventure alongside her partner-in-crime. If you need to find her look for her between the pages of a good book, at an inversion workshop, or in your local rock climbing centre.
