I’m Leanne; a yogi, life coach, firewalk instructor, business owner, wife and mom. Twenty years ago, I walked into my first yoga class. I had no idea what to expect, no clue that there were different types of yoga, and no understanding that the teacher in front of me was one of the best in the world. When I walked out of the room, 90 minutes later, I was changed. That one random event altered the entire trajectory of my life. My love of yoga was instant, my seeking for answers, never ending. Eventually, I took a leap of faith. I quit my “good” (if you define “good” by six figures, coupled with daily nausea) corporate job, went to India to study with Guruji (Pattabhi Jois, the Guru of Ashtanga Yoga). I was on a quest to find deeper meaning in my life. As soon as I arrived in India, I realized the answers I was looking for could have been found at home, but my mind was too cluttered to hear the message. I’ve completed over 10 other Yoga Teacher Training Programs. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of studying with some of the greats in the yoga world, including: Pattabhi Jois, Baron Baptiste, Tim Miller, Manju Jois, Beryl Bender Birch, Dominic Corigliano, Dean Learner, Richard Freeman, David Swenson, and many others. For years, I kept waiting for someone to tell me I was “good enough” to teach. I kept thinking that one more program would give me confidence, or unlock some secret skill that would make me the “perfect” teacher. Eventually, the desire to share the practice outweighed my fears. Five years ago, I opened a yoga studio. I loved the day to day teaching, but the thing that ignited my soul was leading teacher training. There is something magical about witnessing an individual find his or her own authentic teaching voice and truly take their seat as a teacher. Two years ago, Linda and I began to work together, realizing our strengths complimented one another perfectly and we could deliver a program that far exceeded expectations and resulted in massive growth for our participants. It became obvious we weren’t dishing out your average Yoga Teacher Training program. We began to notice that not only did our students develop as teachers, their entire lives began to shift and many life long dreams were fulfilled. After many requests, we decided to make this program available to anyone, anywhere. And so, Teach Yoga Online was born.
