Jan 14 – 21, 2023


Leah is a Colorado native who first found yoga in the heart of the jungle of Costa Rica. She didn’t quite understand how big of an impact yoga would have in her life, but as the saying goes she did not find yoga, yoga found her. After a couple of years of rehabilitation from a car accident, she wanted to travel but knew it was important to maintain all of her hard work for her health. Under the guidance of one of her providers, she decided to go somewhere she could do yoga as well. Eventually, she decided she wanted to learn more and pursued her first certification where she discovered what yoga truly meant to her.

After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology she also completed two 200-hour certifications and one 500-hour certification focusing on Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Ayurveda. She manages a successful studio in Colorado where she enjoys teaching students of all levels and leads yoga teacher training, intensives, and workshops.

Leah’s true passion is in connecting to her students through their stories both on and off their mats. While she loves to teach, it is the moments after class when she sees students truly connect that make her teaching come to life. When she is not teaching she is working with her private clients through Coaching and Mentoring on Mindset, Emotional Intelligence, and Human Design.

In her free time, she loves to spend time with her husband, and their crazy puppy, travel, explore new music and spend time with family and friends in her home state of Colorado.

Leah's Teaching Philosophy

To me, yoga is about connection and authenticity. While my classes hold the intensity that a seasoned yogi needs, they also create space for beginners. I teach Ashtanga Vinyasa-based classes, which focus on the breath and body connection. I believe that the moment I learned to connect to my breath and truly breath, I learned to connect deeper to my body, mind, and heart. The practice is beyond the physical pose but the gateway to getting there is the physical practice. This is what I try to share with my students in every class I teach.  I believe that when the mind is calm and the heart is wild everything is as it should be. So if you can breathe, you can do yoga.



This workshop series is inspired by the opportunities the new year and new moon offer to us. New moons symbolize bringing things that have been hidden in the shadows out into the light. If you are looking to connect deeper to yourself and to others, these workshops are a great space to do so. These workshops are for all levels and no previous yoga experience is necessary.

1. Invitation to the Self (2-hour workshop)

Invite yourself to indulge in the true purpose of your practice with this workshop where we will focus on the breath and body connection. Oftentimes we get caught up in the rush of our everyday lives that we forget to breathe. This workshop is intended for all levels and will focus on how you breathe and how to deepen your breath to bring the body and mind to a meditative state. This workshop will set the tone for the other two parts of this series as well.

2. Unveiling the Self (2-hour workshop)

The second workshop of this series will focus on moving with intention through the energetic body of the 7 Chakras through physical practice and partner work. This journey will unveil the symbolism of any challenges standing in your way and help clear out those energetic blocks. This will not only provide a deeper connection to your body and mind but with others as well.

3. Connecting to the Self (2-hour workshop)

The last of this series will focus on settling the nervous system and provide tools and insight on how to take everything from the week and implement it at home. Often retreats and workshops create great change but can feel a disconnect when we get home of how to bring the two worlds together. This last workshop will not only leave you feeling empowered but connected.

***Each workshop is $40 each for drop-ins, or the package price is $100 for all three.
