Surrender! Francie first came to yoga in the depths of a disconnect with her body in the spring of 2006. Formerly a competitive swimmer, when her career ended with Division I swimming she did not know what practice would develop from her physical body, mind and competitive spirit. Intrigued by the spiritual lessons and self-exploration that started on the mat, Francie quickly became hooked on power vinyasa yoga and started to learn how to surrender to the control she sought like many other young adults. 

Six years after her first class at Power Yoga Works in Philadelphia, Francie received her 200-hour teacher training certification in spring 2012.

Francie finds more meaning, stillness and love in her relationships with others and her work as a nurse from the yoga practice. She hopes to help everyone to find their inner light and possibly peel off a layer or two each class to let that light shine!
