Leslie Coombs, MA, ERYT 500
owner and director of The Avalon Yoga Studio
Leslie began practicing yoga in 1985 and readily incorporated yoga into her daily life, her love of gardening and her 20 years of teaching and coaching dance. She completed her yoga teacher training in 2004 through a path of independent study and completed her 500 hour training at The Himalayan Institute under the guidance of Sandy Anderson and Rolf Solvik. Leslie brings a wide range of experience and training to her teaching including a masters degree in dance/movement therapy. Having worked with many instructors from a variety of yoga traditions allowed Leslie to develop her own unique style, which can best be described as a slow motion flow. Leslie uses her extensive understanding of movement, a strong emphasis on alignment and support and a gentle approach to provide a safe environment for students to explore the many benefits of Yoga. She shares with her students a delight in the practice of mindfulness through movement and encourages the experience of being joyfully present for each moment.
