As a teacher she is caring, inspiring and understanding and utterly dedicated to sharing this knowledge and making it accessible to all who come. Her main teaching style is rooted in her own Ashtanga Vinyasa practise method, the yoga scriptures, breathing and meditation techniques. She teaches for studios across London, runs her own Ashtanga Journeys workshops and also teaches on a one to one basis.
Leanne muses and questions as she continues to discover through experience and study, as is the self- enquiry nature of any spiritual practise... These words naturally pour into notebooks, blogs, videos and poems as she seeks to combine the lessons with her practise, life and the modern world.
Leanne is always immersed in the study and exploration of Yoga. It is a generous, ancient, and never- ending source of both learning and fun. Her main areas of interest are the ancient yogic philosophies set down in the early scriptures, the subtle body originating form Tantra Yoga and the course of evolution of our more modern Hatha Yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa practises. Leanne loves to share her passion and will soon be expanding the website to not only show you more of her exciting / geeky study paths, but also useful information and links to help you further yours too!
