Leigh Evans is a yoga teacher and dancer dedicated to awakening creativity and aliveness in the body. Since 1985, Leigh has practiced Hatha Yoga in the Iyengar, Ashtanga, and Viniyoga traditions in the U.S. and India. Leigh has travelled several time to Asia studying Yoga, Thai massage and Vipassana meditation, as well as Indian Odissi dance, Japanese Butoh, and Balinese Dance. Her dedication to Asian forms of performance and healing arises from her desire to share the meditative and transformative states of consciousness prevalent in these traditions.
Leigh has been teaching yoga for 16 years. Her classes focus on healing and transformation by blending a strong vinyasa practice with gentler restorative asanas, meditation, and chanting. Her emphasis is on developing mindfulness through the yoga practice, inviting you to witness the shifting sensations of the body and attune to the inner unfolding of each asana. Leigh loves the practice of yoga for the peacefulness and clarity of mind that comes from the breath flowing freely in the body. Leigh is the Director of the Greenhouse Holistic Teacher Training Program in Brooklyn. She teaches workshops and retreats nationally and internationally.
