Lelia Leary, Yoga Instructor

Yoga Instructor Lelia Leary was unprepared to discover the power of yoga when she signed up for a class as a way to add mobility to an exercise regimen. Very quickly she learned that yoga was something extraordinary. She dove in and has never looked back. Her most valuable lesson was cultivating the power of the yogic breath to become more responsive and less reactive.

Mindfulness training and Vipassana meditation soon followed as ways to help her stay grounded. She has sat with Sharon Salzberg, Jon Kabat-Zinn, Jack Kornfield and Krishna Das. In her Ashtanga practice, she has been inspired by studying with David Swenson. She’s a mom, a science teacher, and a nature lover. Currently her passions include training Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Muy Thai Kickboxing. She completed her 200 hour training at Revolution Community Yoga.

She offers a challenging yet compassionate practice to build strength, flexibility and balance. All levels are welcome with modifications to ramp up or tone down the offerings. Expect to feel calm, grounded and restored from the practice.
