Leasa first completed her 200RYT certification in 2015. That same year she became pregnant with her first child and began leading Prenatal Yoga classes. This was the moment she found her deepest appreciation for the practice; through empowering pregnant bodies and supporting people during their prenatal journey.
She continued her education to include Prenatal Teacher Training (85RPYT) in Jan 2019, under the guidance of Sasha Padron [YogaSpace, Toronto] .
Leasa teaches at a number of studios across Ontario: including YogaSpace, West End Mamas, Drishti Yoga & Wellness, and Cedar and Sage.
Her classes take you through a combination of exercises, designed to optimize physical and mental alignment and encouraging overall growth. Her teaching style has been described as "creative and balanced": consisting of restorative postures designed to help relieve common pregnancy aches and pains, meditation exercises to enhance connection with baby/self, and conditioning exercises, which strengthen and prepare pregnant bodies for labour.
Leasa is also a Certified Sound Therapy Practitioner. She completed her Sound Therapy training through the Institute of Traditional Medicine [Toronto] and offers Crystal Bowl Sound Baths at the end of her classes, allowing for a deeper restorative state of relaxation by creating a healing environment for the nervous system and for baby.
