Leigha has been teaching yoga since 1984 and taught at Yoga Works in Santa Monica, California starting when it opened its doors in 1987. It was through Yoga Works and The Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles that she had the opportunity to study with senior teachers from all over the globe. Her love of Ashtanga Yoga brought her to India several times to study extensively with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and was authorized to teach by him in 1996. She continues to be inspired by Tim Miller, her main teacher in the West for over 25 years.
Leigha is also a certified Yoga Therapist with The International Association of Yoga Therapists and a continuing educator for Yoga Alliance. Leigha has a gentle approach and is passionate about bringing precise alignment to the graceful movements of traditional Ashtanga Yoga that make it a "moving meditation". She encourages students to embrace the contemplative aspect of the practice with attention to detail and the cultivation of awareness. Her teaching is infused with an intimate knowledge of anatomy that stems from a bodywork practice of nearly three decades, which enables her to address the specific needs of her students.
