MEET YOUR TEACHER : LEIGHA NICOLE
Message from Leigha about online Mysore Ashtanga:
HELLO MYSORE CREW!
I am excited to be offering virtual Mysore-style classes! These 2 hour classes start with chanting the mantram together, then students will have the choice of staying in the group energy or entering a ‘break out room’ where their practice is private. I can then join these personal spaces to interact with practitioners during the course of the class to give verbal cues and offer new poses, variations, ‘researching poses’ and therapeutic sequences to address injuries, etc. Students who are not quite sure of the sequence or are doing abbreviated practices are most welcome!*
*Brand new students should get in touch with Leigha at firstname.lastname@example.org before their first class so they can easily join in.
Leigha Nicole 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.
