Fran was born and raised in Curitiba, Brazil. She spent her early years as a dancer and swimmer. She took her first yoga class in India and was drawn to yoga's movement as a way to recharge and restore her mental and physical well-being. She found her path to Hot Yoga while living in Japan and eventually got her Hot Yoga certification in Koh Samui, Thailand in 2010. Fran offers her students both challenging and carefully guided practice, helping them move their bodies and minds not only in the hot room, but in life. Fran believes that yoga is a life time of learning and she is beyond grateful to be able to connect and inspire through the practice. Full of smiles and joy, Fran believes that LOVE is the key to everything in life.
