Hi MLP Community! My name is a Leanne and I recently completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. I am so excited to share my love of yoga with people all over the world. I have practiced yoga off and on for the last 10 years. During 2020 I was re-introduced to yoga and developed a daily practice through lockdown. Thanks for Alex and the MLPC I realized how much yoga could help both my physical and mental health. My lower back pain is gone, I am stronger than I’ve ever been and I can now lean into meditation and stillness when my life gets a bit hectic!
I am originally from Toronto, Canada and have been living in the Cayman Islands for 25 years. I work full time in an office, so the contrast between my work life and my yoga mat is not lost on me. I am really looking forward to sharing my passion for yoga with others, in particular those that may not think yoga is accessible to them. I am certainly not an expert in all poses, but I’ve learned that is not the goal. I hope to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment where people from all walks of life can put aside their troubles or stresses and enjoy an hour of gentle movement and mindfulness.
In my spare time I enjoy walks on the beach with my husband and dogs, travelling and spending time with our two daughters. When I get back to visit Canada, you will likely find me in the wilderness enjoying a canoe trip or taking in the culture of a museum or art gallery in the city.
