Just like herself, Franny’s classes are powerful and spicy, yet mellow. She completed her 200 hour at Radiant Life Yoga in her home town of Minneapolis, Minnesota before moving to Boston to complete her bachelors degree at Berklee College of Music. Franny deepened her studies with the Art of Assisting program at Down Under School of Yoga where she explored the energy exchange of intentional hands on adjustments and assists. In her classes, students will hold and they will flow. They will face challenge and fire and release and just feel. She guides her students towards transformative experiences of the mind and soul through breath, imagery, and subtle body awareness. Franny brings levity and joy to the safe and exploratory space that she holds for her students.
