Yoga & Healing Arts

“I did not come to Yoga to stretch. I came to live.” Maya Breuer

When we practice Yoga, life begins to shift, stir, awaken and change. Extraordinary new doors are opened for the ways we move and breathe, how we live and work, as well as relate to ourselves, the earth and other living beings. Yoga transforms us, slowly, sweetly, from the inside out.

Her teaching style is distinctive, refreshing, freeing and engaging. She brings 17 years of dedication to her own Yoga practice; 10 years teaching Yoga to diverse communities; and extensive study with some of the most innovative Yoga teachers internationally.

Rather than a class, Leigh Ann provides an experience— a journey from within to explore, grow, play, meditate, heal, cultivate strength, find balance and new life directions. She supports students to find their own inner teacher…that deep well of creativity, presence and wisdom…that always knows what is needed, that gives and asks the best from life. Through Yoga, we welcome ourselves home!
