Amazing, intuitive, wise teacher

I have travelled the world to attend classes and retreats with Leigh. She is one of the most amazing yoga teachers I have met. Always friendly, she has a talent for giving you just what you need, whether that's a physical or spiritual adjustment.
When I'm in New York I always look her up and get to as many classes as I can, no matter where I'm staying.
I wish I could get to more of her retreats. They are a real treat for the body and soul.


If you're free in February her Jungle Yoga retreat in Thailand is one not to be missed. Leigh is an amazing teacher who will take you on a journey from where you are and gradually stretch you over the course of the week. You'll feel fabulous.
The surroundings are gorgeous. You sleep in your own floating bamboo hut, jump off the balcony to swim, grab a kayak and explore the lake, eat yummy food, visit some local caves, hike through the jungle, meet great people…
