Meet Leigha Nicole
Leigha has been teaching yoga since 1984 and taught at YogaWorks in Santa Monica, California starting when it opened its doors in 1987. It was through YogaWorks and The Iyengar Yoga Institute of Los Angeles that she had the opportunity to study with senior teachers from all over the globe. Her love of Ashtanga Yoga brought her to India to study extensively with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, and was authorized to teach by him in 1996. In the West, she was fortunate to have Tim Miller as her main teacher for over 25 years. Leigha is also a certified Yoga Therapist with The International Association of Yoga Therapists and a continuing educator for Yoga Alliance.
Leigha has a gentle approach and is passionate about bringing precise alignment to the graceful movements of traditional Ashtanga Yoga that make it a “moving meditation”. She encourages students to embrace the contemplative aspect of the practice with attention to detail and the cultivation of awareness. Her teaching is infused with an intimate knowledge of anatomy that stems from a bodywork practice of over three decades, which enables her to address the specific therapeutic needs of her students.

What is Mysore?
Mysore style practice is the self paced traditional forum, and cornerstone for studying Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Practitioners arrive anytime during the class period and practice for as little or as long as they like, but are encouraged to build endurance so that a one to two hour sequence becomes routine. The teacher moves around the room and practitioners are supported by the teacher individually. Beginners and those with a therapeutic self-practice welcome. If you are a new student, please check in with the teacher upon arrival.
