When Leia began practicing Moksha yoga in early 2008, she came out of simple curiosity. After her first practice, she felt not only that she had been physically challenged, but also that she had discovered a strategy to help manage stress and lead a better life. Yoga quickly began to create change in her life, and she travelled to Kerala, India in March 2010 to complete Moksha Level 1 teacher training. Leia recently completed Moksha Level 2 in November 2012 and is now thrilled to be back home in Saskatoon working to help others find a path towards a more nourishing and harmonious lifestyle.
Leia’s passion for yoga stems not only from a love of physical expression, but also out of her desire to connect with all people. She is grateful to witness the processes of self-discovery and personal development that occur every day in sweaty Moksha classes. Leia believes that although we may all come to yoga for different reasons, and have specific needs, we can share in a common experience through yoga. Leia is passionate about building community and creating a welcoming space for the students of Moksha Yoga Saskatoon.
