Leslie discovered yoga in 2013 and quickly became a devoted student, practicing many styles including Vinyasa, Barkan, and Bikram. In 2014, she completed her 200 hour RYA certification through High Peaks Hot Vinyasa Teacher Training. Following training, she went on to complete Level 1, 100 hours with Baron Baptiste, Journey Into Power and completed two Baptiste immersions, Art of Assisting and Advanced Art of Assisting. Leslie’s most recent certification is the NuPower Yoga Sculpt training which took place in early 2017.
Through this journey, Leslie has learned that success in yoga, and in life, is about failing 100 times to succeed once. Yoga is an ongoing process rather than a final product, with many steps and obstacles along the way. This yoga journey has been the most transformational period of Leslie's life as she has uncovered strengths, learned to face insecurities head on, and discovered both what is meaningful and what can be let go. Leslie’s believes that the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others and she loves sharing yoga with her students. When not at the studio taking or teaching classes, Leslie is usually walking her dogs or spending her time as an assistant manager at a group home.
