You've started on the path of self-healing today- now meet your compassionate, intuitive, and highly trained yoga therapist.
Hi, I'm Frances
artist, mother, and yoga teacher
My gift and purpose in life is to create the conditions to experience happiness, calm, and ease, in my body and heart. A big part of finding ease and steadiness comes from teaching and sharing what I’ve learned over my life.
I was lucky to be encouraged creatively as a child, to start learning yoga at a young age, and to have active time outdoors; I see these as three pillars of happiness in life.
Still, if like me, you share this goal to be at ease, you can see that life, being what it is, deals us blows. That, unlike those born enlightened, we mortals must work our way up out of the mud like the lotus to bloom.
It’s taken many years, exploring yoga, art, and intuition, guided by compassionate and experienced teachers, but it’s led me to a deeper understanding of how using the breath and body tunes us into our heart so we can heal and thrive.
Being an artist and intuitive helps me see where you are at the present moment in body and heart, so I can design a practice for you with your comfort and ease in view. Everyone is unique and practicing yoga can and should be done with ease, whether you can touch your toes or not.
Breathing mindfully is at the heart of yoga, and available to anyone who wants to learn how to do it.
Finding blocks and releasing them can become as effortless as pausing in life for a few minutes to observe and shift your breath.
That’s why I created Joy Core Connection and my yoga programs. To share the knowledge I’ve gained over the years, and guide you to find the best ways to reach your goals for living with ease in body and mind.
When I’m not having fun helping students open their body and mind, I’m a wife and mother; cooking, gardening, and making art.
