who is leslie cikra?

I’m an Ohio girl living in Denver with my pup. My path in athletics naturally led me into this wonderful world of wellness.  The more I dive in, the more I feel like I am where I am supposed to be.  My goal is to help people feel good and make yoga more accessible for people of all ages. I believe in freedom, fresh air, authenticity + movement.  I love snowboarding, camping and having my barefeet on the earth and being on the road, going somewhere new.  I love finding space and (attempting) balance and I believe in always working to grow and better yourself as a human.



I have always been an athlete as long as I can remember.  I competed as a Lady Vol for the University of Tennessee Volleyball team, and was able to continue playing professionally overseas in France and South Korea.  After a serious back injury, I was introduced to  the Lagree method and went back to my roots, diving back into my yoga practice.  I have experienced physical limitation in many ways over the years and want to share the tools I have gained to help others bring mobility and balance back into their body to  feel, move and live better.

Completing my Lagree Certification and my 200RYT teacher training at The River Yoga completely changed the trajectory of my life and body.  I found a renewed fire and sense of badassness that I had missed so much without volleyball. Since this new chapter began, I have completed continuing yoga education in deep stretch/meditation, yin yoga, and spinal fluidity and low back pain.  I’ve also completed my Lightyear Leadership (formerly Igolu) Level 1 Training in personal values, vision+goals and harnessing your personal power. I’ve been getting to know myself and picking up tools along the way to create and manifest the life I’ve envisioned.
