Driven by fitness, health and adventure, Leigh dove head first in to the It’s Yoga family. She discovered Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga while studying health and wellness in northern Vermont. In 2008, she completed a Massage Therapy course at Body Soul Spa and School to expand on her interest of anatomy and in 2009, she received her Personal Training Certification through ISFTA. Since 2008, Leigh happily balanced her two businesses while living a rugged life off the grid. Continuously drawn to deepen her yoga practice, she decided to pursue the It’s Yoga Teacher Training program, packed up her few belongings, and bought a one way ticket to California.
She received her 200hr Certificate at Asta Yoga, an It’s Yoga affiliate, with Rene Henly and Stevie Pyka in September 2011. In November, she went on to complete the It’s Yoga Rocket Training in San Francisco with Marie Russel. After six months reconnecting with her family in Philadelphia, Leigh moved to Toledo, Ohio to join Marie in the opening and operation of It’s Yoga Toledo.
Leigh continues to practice massage, and while she still loves a kick butt bootcamp style workout or a 10 mile run in the rain and mud, her true love and focus is dedicated to It’s Yoga System as a facilitator and practitioner.
