Yogafaith is the miracle I didn’t know I was praying for! He has been so faithful to guide me through this life changing journey. Hallelujah! I have become a new creation. I am transformed and filled with a purpose that blesses me as I passionately serve others! I can’t overstate how Michelle Thielen has encouraged me into areas of personal and spiritual growth beyond what I could’ve imagined God had planned for me!
I am also a Certified Aromatouch Technician with doTERRA Essential Oils. I love incorporating essential oils as well as other mediums such as art and journaling into my Yogafaith classes. I am available for individual or group sessions as well as retreats. I mainly teach Gentle Yoga while instructing for options of more challenging poses.
Fran is currently in the YogaFaith Dance and Embodiment Training.
