Certified Yoga Instructor, Licensed Massage Therapist
Our connection to breath draws us inward to Self
Fran Ray was only 8 years old when her older sister first introduced her to yoga. She has practiced it ever since. Fran regards yoga as an essential tool to attain a state of bliss and maintain optimum physical and emotional health.
When Fran was 24, she suffered a debilitating back injury with fractured vertebrae. Yoga provided her relief from pain without drugs or surgery. Fran became a licensed massage therapist in 1991 and six years later, her love of yoga inspired her to study Thai Yoga Massage in Florida. She traveled to Thailand in 2000 to continue her study and upon returning to the US, Fran uniquely paired her massage training with teaching yoga.
She received her 200 hour Yoga Teacher training certification from The Yoga Institute of Houston with Lex Gillan and Raye Lynn Rath. In 2004, Fran continued her education with an additional 200 hour Yoga Teacher training certification at the Yoga Mandali Studio in New York City, under the direction of Lisa Keays.
Fran's formal training in Thai Yoga Massage incorporates a knowledge of the body’s structure and function to assist bringing more space within the body. This facilitates the body to return to its own harmonious balance and heal.
