Meet the Teacher

Hi, I'm Frances

artist, mother, and yoga teacher

My passion and purpose in life is learning how to create the conditions to experience happiness, calm, and ease, in my body and mind whatever is happening around me and to share it with you.


In my younger years I was lucky to have a great foundation for happiness- to start learning yoga at a young age, to have active time outdoors, and to be encouraged creatively, but in my heart I still suffered. Life presents us all with struggle and hardship, you too have experienced criticism, shame, judgement, we all do.


All of our experiences stay with us not just in the mind, but in the body, that’s why trauma can be so hard to release. It’s taken me many years and lots of study with teachers from different disciplines to understand that you do it with the breath.


You see, the breath is the master controller of how we feel in the moment, and when you learn to breathe mindfully then your emotions do not control you. This is at the heart of yoga, which includes breathing exercises and meditation on top of moving the body.


Unless you’re born enlightened, we mortals must work our way up out of the mud like the lotus to bloom. I’d love to show you how to make that journey much more quickly than I did by teaching you how to use the breath and body to tune us into our heart so we can heal and thrive.


As an artist and intuitive I can see where you are at the present moment in your body and heart, so in both private and small group classes 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 bodies and mind, I’m a wife and mother; cooking, gardening, and making art.

My Credentials

My work is my vocation. I earned two yoga teaching certificates as well as special qualifications for teaching those with arthritis, seniors and children. 


I‘ve studied with the ‘stars’ of yoga, exploring many different styles, before finding my current teacher, Rosemary Antze. It is only with her kind and compassionate guidance that I found my way, so much of what I tried before was ineffective.

Art and Yoga

Being an artist and intuitive has helped me ‘see’ people, inside and out. At the same time creativity and humour makes our learning fun.

Everyone has unique gifts and limitations: learning and practicing yoga, art and/or intuitive modalities can and should be done with ease, whether you’re flexible, experienced, or or not.

Working together, we will find a way to gently get your body moving,   your breath flowing, and the peace of meditation. Finding blocks, releasing them, and breathing mindfully are at the heart of this practice, and available to anyone who wants to learn it.

Join us on our art workshop

When I’m not having fun helping students open their bodies and minds, I’m taking care of hearth and home as a mother and wife, cooking and gardening. I also love and making art, enjoy long walks with my dog, good books and movies. I’ve also passionately explore holistic health, and brings a wealth of knowledge to help you navigate the many alternatives available for health and wellness.


If you want to experience the power of healing from your heart and connecting to your joy core, you can apply to have a personal exploration session available on a first-come basis.


Learn the tools to relieve the stress that causes you both physical and mental pain, and to nurture a stable and flexible Joy Core, 

at the heart of your creativity. 


Yours, Frances
