The Yoga Student

(and the Ashtanga Geek)

As well as her research into the Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga techniques Leanne is always immersed in a much broader yogic study too through classic and modern scriptures, texts, teachers and scholars.  She has a passion for study of yoga philosophy, the early metaphysical yogic body, hatha yoga techniques and the course of evolution of our modern Hatha and Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga practises.   She will  also seek out those teachings from modern day Ashtanga teachers and elders in order to refine her own technique and make the practise safer, more sustainable and enjoyable for all!
