About Leslie

I began practicing yoga in 1997 as a college student because of back pain. After graduating I moved to Southern California for work where I took my first Iyengar yoga class with senior teacher Karin O’Bannon. I was intrigued by the level of detail and emphasis on postural alignment that the practice of Iyengar yoga offered and began to see improvements to my overall health and well-being. I completed a three-year Iyengar teacher-training program in 2003 in L.A and became a Level One Certified Iyengar Teacher in 2005. Since that time I have lived in several different places and have been fortunate to learn from senior teachers in different parts of the country and in Europe. Most recently I had the opportunity to learn from senior teacher Rita Keller during our time living abroad in Germany. My most memorable experience was to travel with her and a group of other Iyengar teachers and students to Bellur, Karnataka (birthplace of B.K.S. Iyengar) in southern India for an intensive teacher training course. I have studied with some of the senior teachers in Denver but currently I reside in Evergreen and continue my studies online with senior teacher Jennifer Beaumont. Iyengar yoga has the potential to improve our posture so that the breath flows more easily giving us the tools necessary to face the stresses of modern life with equanimity. I maintain a daily practice and enjoy teaching students of all ages and abilities and look forward to sharing some of my yoga journey with you.
