Restorative Yoga & Meditation Sunday 4.15pm, Iyengar Beginners Yoga Wednesday 11.00am
Frances is a teacher-in-training with Senior Iyengar teacher, Simon Marrocco. She began studying Iyengar yoga twenty three years ago initially with Senior Iyengar teacher, Pixie Lillas and then Peter Scott in Noosa, and has worked with Dr Geeta Iyengar in Australia. Her asana practice builds on a deep spiritual foundation of meditation practice and daily aspiration towards yogic bliss.
Within her Beginners Yoga class, Frances focuses on the planes of the body, encouraging students to build strength and alignment in the skeletal and muscular system to help transcend gravity. Students gradually work towards establishing a quiet mind and a state of inner relaxation through becoming conscious of and controlling the movement of the breath and its connection to concentrated movement of the body.
Postures in Beginners Yoga classes are sequenced to establish individual proficiency. They begin simply but evolve towards increasing complexity, strength and flexibility, and a deep understanding of Iyengar yoga.
Frances has taught art and drama in schools and is currently also working in ceramics.
