Hi I'm Frances. I've been teaching yoga in Perthshire for over 2 years after training intensively in Ireland with The Crown Centre/YTTC in 2016 under Roy Griffin and Judy Watkin.  Training teachers in Ireland and internationally to a very high standard since 1996, they are recognised and endorsed by the Yoga Alliance.  This year (2019) they've rebranded as Yago and can be found here:  https://www.yagoschoolofyoga.ie

I discovered this yoga school while working as a school teacher in the West Highlands (2010-2016) while dreaming of finding a way to do more yoga in a rural area (other than taking my mat to the beach) and training properly to make it a part of my life. Prior to that I lived, studied and worked in Glasgow where I practised yoga for 7 years.  As soon as I found out I had a place on the yoga teacher training course in Ireland over the summer of 2016 I also found out I had a new job in Perth & Kinross so moved to Dublin for 6 weeks while trying to remotely move back from Fort William to Perth - no pressure!  I was lucky to find myself working in Blairgowrie when Live Active Leisure Blairgowrie took me under their wing and offered me a weekly yoga class as they'd been left without a yoga teacher.  Slowly my class built up to the popular, lively and friendly bunch of faces that greet me every Friday evening at the end of a busy week and I'm grateful to them for their patience and commitment and also welcome new faces often.  In August 2018 I reduced my hours to part-time and since January 2018 I've been setting up  Elevate Yoga Scotland to allow me find more spaces to practise and offer yoga to people across Perth & Kinross.

I'm really passionate about yoga being for ANYONE and breaking down barriers to yoga. As such I've trained with Edinburgh Community Yoga at a CPD at Merchant City Yoga in Glasgow looking at approaching ways to work with yoga in outreach settings and working with vulnerable groups and people who have experienced trauma.  This also looked at the impact of stress on the body and brain in modern life and how yoga can help to heal this.  As someone who has worked in stressful jobs including in education and community settings and as someone who has personal experience of anxiety and depression myself I'm so aware of how this is true and am now keen share this with others.
