The sport of volleyball jump started my fitness journey.  I competed for the University of Tennessee Volleyball team, and continued my career professionally in France and South Korea.  After a career ending injury, I dove headfirst into my yoga practice and was introduced to the Lagree Fitness method.

 My path in athletics naturally led me into this wonderful world of wellness.  I began to approach how I worked out a little more gently and intuitively than I had previously as an athlete.  Completing my Lagree Certification and my 200RYT teacher training at The River Yoga completely changed the trajectory of my life and body.  I have since completed continuing education with Lagree Fitness (Level 2) and in yin yoga + meditation.

Movement is a major conduit for personal growth and internal awareness.  Every day, I am surrounded by people who use movement as a tool on the journey to better themselves in mind and body.  I believe that everyone should be able to participate in the activities they love, and I believe in healing the body to make that possible.  I love to push my students outside their physical comfort zone to step into their personal power.  It is an honor be alongside to help you tap into your strength and crush your goals!

    Hi, Leslie

    I found out my favorite Korean team just drafted you, and am hoping to help you to adjust well and win in Korea (thus helping my team to win the championship). I can fill you in everything you need to make it successful in Korea. Hope to hear from you. 🙂

    I can’t wait to read more and more about your life in Greece. I swear one day we will be able to do the things that you have on your bucket list together. Or make our own. Just for us. I want to give you the world Leslie, but more importantly I want you to have me. Everything I am is yours and it always will be. I love you. Deeply. Madly. Forever.
