Fran Hinton began her journey in yoga in 1965 and has trained in various styles over the past 50 years.

Because of her own ongoing back issues, Fran began practicing the Pilates method in 1997 and continues to teach and study under master teachers in both yoga and Pilates. Fran’s current passions are yoga and Pilates (mat and apparatus). She loves to teach and believes that no matter what you do in life, it should always be from a compassionate and joyful heart.
