About Yoga Instructor - Fran Gallo 

Picture
Fran Gallo started practicing yoga as a means of releasing tension after long hours of working as an English Instructor
at Green River Community College (Washington). Love of yoga made Fran decide to devote herself to learning this art in order to share its healing effects with others. 

In 1996, Fran studied intensively with and was certified under Yogi Vkashananda in Nepal. She has been teaching ever since. 




According to Fran, "the magic of yoga is in the discovery of being able to go beyond what we perceive as our limits and in the profound sense of peace and balance one feels after just one session of practice."
