LEIGHA NICOLE has been teaching yoga for 29 years and taught at Yoga Works in Santa Monica, CA from its inception in 1987. Her love of Ashtanga Yoga brought her to Inida 21 years ago to study extensively with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and was authorized to teach by him in 1996. Leigha has a gentle approach and encourages students to embrace the contemplative aspect of the practice with attention to alignment and the cultivation of awarness. She has an intimate knowledge of anatomy that stems from a 25 year bodywork practice which enables her to address the specific therapeutic needs of her students. Leigha moved from Point Reyes, CA to the spiritual town of Crestone, CO in 2005, where she built a straw bale solar home and yoga studio. She regularly returns to the Bay Area for group classes and workshops.
