Born and raised in a small town of Western, NY LeeAnna stumbled upon a Yoga Studio. LeeAnna has been a dancer since a young age and enjoyed the physical aspects of Yoga Asana. Yoga brought more than just the physical that she was used to. She learned the art of meditation, the stillness of the mind and zen like feeling after the practice. She practiced regularly at the studio and at home. Naturally, she introduced her friends and family to Yoga teaching them and bringing them to classes.
She first began to teach in college (10 years ago) and eventually received a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Dania Beach, Florida. She has been teaching consistently for 7 years in Sullivan County at local studios, spas, and hotels, as well as outdoor classes bringing Yoga to the local community.
In Buffalo, LeeAnna studied Baron Baptise and Ashtanga Yoga. Her classes are now more eclectic teaching to those in front of her with influence from a variety of teachers and what is needed to build strong healthy bodies, minds, and spirits. She has taken countless classes, workshops, and trainings with senior yoga teachers to expand her understanding of Yoga. LeeAnna is dedicated to creating a safe space for students to learn and practice in her classes. She understands everyone's body is unique and creates modifications and helpful corrections as needed. Her most popular and loved classes are Vinyasa and Restorative Yoga.
Beyond teaching Yoga, LeeAnna owns The Yoga Space in Hurleyville, Co-owns Sprouting Dreams Farm in Liberty, and is Reiki II certified.
