Mary Frances Candies
Mary Frances, also known as Marf, grew up in New Orleans, LA. She now lives in Santa Monica, CA with her fiancé and their cat and dog! Her yoga journey began at 16 when she sought out an alternate movement practice after quitting ballet. She quickly fell in love with the practice of yoga and hasn’t stopped since. She found solace in the practice as a way to manage her chronic anxiety and build community. She completed her first 200hr in 2020 with Rodney and Colleen and then her 300hr in 2021. She has since assistant-mentored several training sessions at Yoga Shanti. She loves the constant learning and self-discovery that yoga provides. Her classes prioritize Shanti sequencing, creating space in the mind & body, and having fun! See you in the zoom studio!
