Hi! I'm Leora! (@sunlightlee
) - I grew up in Colorado, and when I moved to California and found paddleboard yoga, I felt at home in my own heart and soul more than I ever had before. It makes sense that my calling was to help teach people on the water, after all...my middle name is Dolphin 🐬☺
My mother is a yoga teacher and I grew up with sun salutations every morning before getting ready for school. When I got to college I started deepening my personal practice and dived all the way in. I found my first 200 hr yoga teacher training in Maui, and started teaching my friends as soon as I got back. Then, by the most random and life changing sequence of events, I found paddleboard yoga in the Bay Area. I got certified to teach SUP Yoga and spent the Summer taking such fun groups of lovely people out to play on the water. It's truly an outdoor adventure and at the same time an inward adventure, connecting to the deepest parts of yourself in stillness and quiet on the gentle waves. .
When I moved to LA, I knew I had to find a new SUP Yoga community to call home. I found it with @YOGAqua
Allyson @allysonlynch took me under her wing and inspired me to do the @YOGAqua training. The training was so much fun - I made life long friends, got to deepen my teaching skills, and became more comfortable teaching on the water in Marina del Rey. I started assisting Allyson's classes and was able to assist her @wanderlustfest in Tahoe/Squaw Valley. My favorite part was setting up our floating studio, it was magical to see something so amazing created right in front of our eyes. Not to mention getting to experience the excitement of all the students! .
@YOGAqua has created such an incredible teaching space and group of badass teachers. We all have so much fun together. I look forward to every moment I get to experience with them, with all of our amazing students, and each moment out on the water.
I look forward to seeing you out there! 💟
