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 has also served 2 terms as a Lululemon Athletica ambassador.
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.
