Leslie began her yoga studies in 2013 under the tutelage of Shana Meyerson (YOGAthletica and mini yogis yoga for kids) and Michelle Mazur for her 200- and 300-hour teacher trainings, where she was first introduced to the Krishnamacharya lineage. Her studies have since led her to several other incomparable teachers under this auspicious lineage: Robert Birnberg (Sutras), Eleni Tsikrikras (Ayurveda), and David Adams (yoga teacher training). Leslie also considers her students—from toddlers to centenarians—as a consistent source of love, wisdom, and inspiration.
