After owning a successful online luxury boutique for 5 years, Leslie found herself moving away from the high intensity world of fashion and more drawn towards her long-term yoga practice. Not only was yoga a wonderful way to help deal with her daily stress, but it was also a phenomenal way to stay in shape. Inspired by her yoga teacher and friend Tara Stiles, Leslie began teacher training under Tara in 2011. Through this she found, rather unexpectedly, her new path: "Nothing makes me happier than working with my students and seeing their smiles. Teaching yoga and helping others achieve their physical and mental goals is the most satisfying job I've ever had or could ever imagine." Leslie teaches in NYC at Sangha Yoga Shala.
