Leah Marie Yoga

Movement, Breathwork & Meditation

it is my mission ​to empower ​others to look ​within


My 'IN' to yoga opened up 32 years ago, when I began to awaken to self-healing and inner ​connection. I was introduced to Hatha Yoga and meditation during an extended stay at ​Muktananda's (Gurumayi's) ashram in the sacred Tansa Valley, in Maharashtra, India in ​my 20's... and touched on it over the years through my continuing yoga practice. ​Something changed in me when I took the time to breathe deeper into my being through a ​daily practice. I was able to begin releasing old wounds, and feel renewed on a daily basis. I ​was able to move through my day feeling more balanced and grounded.

Currently I am co-owner/studio manager and teaching yoga classes at Studio Nine in ​Camrose, AB

These classes are great for anyone wanting to ​explore and move their bodies. In these ​current times we can hold a lot of stress in our ​system, and through the practice of yoga, ​those areas of stress are able to release. This ​creates more space in the body and mind for ​ease, calmness and well-being.

Private sessions provide you with a safe ​container of undivided attention and ​exquisite care. Allow me to guide you through ​a one hour solo practice of either hatha, ​kundalini or yin yoga (the choice is yours!) ​These private sessions can be crafted to suit ​your needs and your level.

These classes are wonderful for seniors, or ​anyone who feels limited in flexibility. There is ​the assurance of being supported by the chair, ​and the poses are gentle & invigorating. You ​are encouraged to listen to your body and ​move according to where you're at on a ​physical level, slowly evolving over time.

I love taking yoga with Leah. She has such a ​deep understanding of yoga on such ​intricate levels, that it has opened up fresh ​vistas to consider. The subtleties of her ​words and her use of pranayamas & mudras ​is profound.

background (RYT 500, e-RYT 200)

  • Yoga and Ayurveda Wellness Consultant (July 2021 completed a 300 hr online course ​with Dr. David Frawley in Yoga, Ayurveda, Mantra and Meditation, an in-depth, ​comprehensive course on Raja Yoga and Yogic Ayurveda).

  • Hatha yoga, meditation, breathwork and Himalayan Kundalini Kriya yoga (Sept 2020 ​completed 200 hrs online with Sattva Yoga Academy, based in Rishikesh India).

Practicing and teaching prāṇāyāma (breathing techniques) has become a very important ​aspect of my offerings. Utilizing the breath creates a sense of calm and balance when ​necessary, and also ignites an inner fire, moving prāṇa or energy throughout the different ​centers of the body. Through my own daily practice, I discover over and over the true ​meaning of honouring my body, and it becomes complete with the nourishment of healthy ​food! Nutrition goes hand-in-hand with yoga (I also graduated as a Certified Holistic ​Nutritional Consultant from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition in 2011).
