WILD WOMAN YOGA + WELLNESS
Francine completed her first yoga teacher training in 2017 when she completed her RYT200 in Mississauga, Ontario through LifePower Yoga, having falling in love with the practice years before ever making it to her mat. Since then, Francine has completed a number of international yoga teacher trainings through Happy Jack Yoga. The continuation of her yoga studies lead Francine to India for a 100 hour Spirituality Immersion to study yoga, pranayama, meditation and the ancient science of Ayurveda at the Parmarth Niketan Ashram in Rishikesh - the birthplace of yoga located in the mystical foothills of the Himalayas - right on the banks of the Holy Ganges river!! Francine completed her 10 hour Ayurveda certification under Dr. Harsh Agrawal while in India as part of her 100 hour certification. Francine went on to complete her Yin Immersion in Bracebridge, Ontario and an Abundance Immersion literally right on the beautiful beaches at the Maya Tulum Resort & Spa - a seaside yoga retreat centre in Tulum, Mexico. Francine is hopeful about graduating her RYT500 with Happy Jack in The Scared Valley in Urubamba Peru, which was initially planed for September 2020. Francine has completed a total of 450 hours of formal yoga training to date. Her journey has taken her to places she use to only dream of.
Francine's yoga students are calmed by her soothing voice during a relaxing yin practice and empowered to their find their edge through the power that is also channelled through her voice as Francine guides her students through more active hatha and power yinyasa style yoga classes. Francine teaching style focuses on breath, alignment and mind-body connection.
Francine also received her Usui Reiki Healer and QRA Practitioner certifications in 2018.
Francine's greatest lessons have been that 'your pain is your purpose' and that 'it is through healing yourself that you heal the world'.
