Leigh Saulnier

Hi friends, my name is Leigh, and I love yoga! Yoga has been a key component in maintaining my sobriety, building a community of friends during the pandemic, and fostering my mental health. I met Alex through a sober community and joined the MLPC in June, 2020. I had practiced yoga off and on for many years before, but I got more inspired to practice daily when I had to stop running due to injuries. I have competed in the Ironman triathlon as well as many marathons in the past and felt a big void in my life when I was no longer marathon training.

I recently completed the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with the MLPC and am super excited to be teaching yoga and leading sober pods! I enjoy all types of yoga practice, and I believe that anyone can do yoga! I also completed Susanna Barkataki’s 25 hour course on Honoring the Roots of Yoga.

I recently retired from my job as an occupational therapist working with children with sensory processing disorders. I am married and have three adult children. I love traveling, spending time with my kids, hiking, knitting, gardening, cooking (and eating) vegan food, and engaging in social and environmental justice efforts.
