Leslie first came to yoga in 2007 thinking it would be relatively boring and not challenging enough for her physicality. Boy was she wrong! After that first Bikram class she was humbled, worked-out, opened up and hungry for more! Thus began her yoga journey, learning and teaching all around the greater North Seattle area. Leslie has studied in a variety of different styles of yoga and completed her 200hr RYT in 2013, through YogaWorks. Ever the enthusiastic learner, Leslie pursued deeper and deeper lessons in Ashtanga, Iyengar, and Baptiste styles of yoga which now incorporate themselves into her classes. Leslie completed her 500hr RYT in 2015 through Twist Yoga, studying independently with many teachers. Leslie was honored to be asked to be adjunct faculty in a 200hr Teacher Training program where she taught yogic philosophy and then in 2017 was the Lead Teacher Trainer for the program.
Leslie and her partner recently moved to Tacoma and are happily finding their way around, connecting with great people. Leslie teaches in the traditional way she was taught with a flair of playfulness, knowing there is room for both tradition and fun.
