Testimonials and Sign Up

Even after studying this text a number of times on my own and with various teachers, Leanne has managed to enlighten aspects of this work that has given it a new life for me. And, it was really fun and interactive!

~Online participant, 2019

Leanne has a way of explaining that is revealing and clarifying. She moves through the sutras not so much as ideas, but closer to a guided meditation.  ~Online participant, 2018
 

My brain clings to the Western way of acquiring knowledge and this was an earth shattering approach to the study of the sūtras.
~Yoga Teacher Trainee 2018


This was an amazing and eye-opening approach to unpacking these Yoga Sūtras. Truly, a lifelong exploration, these sūtras have opened a whole new way of approaching life. Thank you for your passion, your patience in listening to our input, and your explanation of difficult concepts.
You make this content real, practical and understandable. I hope to continue to grasp it and apply it to my own life.
You have truly made it accessible.
