Leah believes that there is a yoga practice for everybody. The secret is to find a teacher that speaks to you. It was not love at first sight after she tried her first yoga class 15 years ago, she failed understand the hype and quickly lost interest. Fast forward to 2009 she rediscovered yoga after taking a power yoga class because at that time, that was what her body needed. Despite being an avid runner she watched her body transform to a much stronger and more toned self. The more she practiced it, the more she let go of the notion that it is just a physical practice and became open to the deeper understanding of the mind-body-spirit connections. To help deepen her understanding of yoga, she completed her Teacher Training in 2011 with the amazing Barb Leese. She started teaching classes locally throughout Halton before moving to Montreal in 2012 and started teaching there. Teaching yoga was something she always did on the side while continuing to work in the corporate world. It was not until the Summer of 2014 when she returned back to Ontario that she had the courage to work in the field full-time and she has not looked back. Leah specializes in yoga for beginners, seniors (mature bodies) and runners (her love for hip and hamstring poses since being a runner herself). She loves furthering her studies in yoga and health & wellness. She has completed her yoga for seniors training, started her Pain Care Yoga Certificate and is currently studying to be a Registered Holistic Nutritionist with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. In addition, she is also Canfitpro certified as a Fitness Instructor and Fitness Specialist for Seniors through the Canadian Centre of Activity and Aging in connection with the University of Western. Leah not only teaches classes at Life Yoga, she helps Alia with all the behind the scenes that make the studio a success.
