Yoga As Unique As You Are

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory, auto-immune disorder that can affect more than just your joints. More than 1.5 million people suffer from RA in the United States. Learn how yoga helped this woman go from not being able to walk around the block, or get up from off of the floor on her own, to training for the El Camino de Santiago, a 500 mile trek in Spain.

What Makes Me Different?

I began yoga over 10 years ago to help me manage my stress during college. I realized the powerful effect it had on my nerves, my concentration, and my overall health. Almost immediately, I knew that I couldn't live my life as fully as I wanted to without practicing yoga and my passion became sharing it with you.

Initially, I was very hesitant to begin yoga due to some weight and health issues. Not only is Francesca’s skill level and knowledge apparent when you begin to work with her but she also displays a tremendous capacity to listen and adapt her lessons to fit the needs and abilities of her student.

Francesca is very accommodating and has worked around my schedule, and we have worked together as often as 3 times a week and as few as twice a month. It is without reservation that I recommend Francesca as a yoga instructor.
