Yoga increases your sense of calm, well being, Not coincidentally, it decreases stress along with physical and psychological pain. Also, MRI results show that yoga elevates your levels of GABA, an amino acid found in the central nervous system which helps you feel calm, and alleviates symptoms of depression and anxiety. The practice of linking the breath with movement stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes the ability to recover, digest, play, and create. These breath-centred yin and yin-yang classes focus on functional alignment and presence. They help you reset, so you feel both relaxed and energized. These sessions, grounded on a safe and welcoming platform, also provide practical tools you can take away to enrich the rest of your day and life.

"Leah is one of those people whom you only have to meet once to know there is something special about her...
She came into my life when a recent diagnosis of Familial Adenomatous Polyposis brought the harsh reality of precancer, cancer, and multiple surgeries, knocking the earth right out from under my feet. Leah has helped me in a way that I still do not fully understand; she helps me feel grounded and brings me a sense of clarity. On the days when I feel I have lost myself, Leah is always able to amaze me with her incredible knowledge and share quotes and tools to help bring my feet back to the earth. As my mother said to me one day “I don’t know how Leah does it, but she centers you.” If Leah crosses your path when you need her you will be amazed at how quickly her gracious, kind, understanding, and gentle way of working makes you wonder how you ever lived without her gentle touch in your life. My heart is filled with immense gratitude for Leah and how she has helped and inspired me”.- Catherine Sewell
"Leah is a luminous force...
She is responsible for me reconnecting to yoga in a big way and through her teaching, I've been able to deepen my practice adding in yin and mantra. She's helped get me out of my head and into my body. She is an incredible teacher and her recipes are delicious and fulfilling." - Nolan Funk (Actor)
"Leah helped me find the strength and courage of healing my inner and outer self...
Going through cancer treatment is overwhelming, emotional and frightening. I also had two young children a husband and lived 3 hours away from where I was being treated in Seattle. Even though I had a huge support system of family, friends and doctors, the gentle poses and words of loving kindness still stays with me. Even when I thought there was nothing my body could do, Leah would show me that I was alway capable of something. I have learned and continue to learn so much from Leah. She is one of my greatest gifts!" - Stephanie Maiers
