Leanne is a 300hr certified Jivamukti yoga teacher and 500hr British Wheel of Yoga teacher. She has been practicing Yoga since 2008 and believes she will be practicing yoga for the rest of her life.
Leanne found yoga at a tough time in her life and has realized that slowly but surely it was changing her life for the better. Leanne realized how calm, peaceful and inspiring her yoga teachers were and knew that she wanted to be like them. Understanding that Yoga would help her daily life physically, mentally and emotionally. She knew she wanted to learn more about these profound teachings and be able to share them with others. As soon as Leanne was able to, she signed up to do the BWY Foundation course and completed that with Sarah Harris in Letchworth, England in 2011. Through this Leanne’s personal practice and exploration continued and very quickly realized she wanted to learn even more so signed up for the BWY teacher training. Leanne trained with Andrea Kwiatkowski for her 3 year BWY diploma, who introduced her to the wonderful method of Jivamukti. Consequently Leanne completed the Jivamukti training at Gaunts House, in Dorset in 2012 with her beloved teachers Sharon Gannon, David Life, Yogeswari & Patrick Broome. Leanne moved to Bournemouth, England when she had her first baby in 2014 and is currently on maternity leave with her 2nd child. She is enjoying exploring how her practice has changed and applying the yogic teachings to motherhood.
Leanne is also a qualified Thai Yoga Massage therapist and completed her training with Ralf Marsden in 2015.
Leanne’s classes are open to all levels. They will include some chanting, pranayama, yoga philosophy, vinyasa flowing sequences, massage, meditation. The Jivamukti classes have an inspiring playlist of music to practice to.
Leanne is truly thankful every day for the gift of Yoga. Leanne’s personal mantra is “one must lift oneself up, by oneself”. Om Shanti.
