book a class with leslee
Born and raised in Winnipeg, where she was the sole proprietor of her own Physiotherapy practice Prana Physiotherapy and Therapeutic Yoga, Leslee also earned a degree in Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Manitoba. After receiving her first 500 hour yoga certification through Moksha (Modo) Yoga in India in 2009, she quickly realized the demand for an intelligent, informed, and accessible therapeutic approach to yoga and, by combining her various backgrounds, founded The Physiologic Therapeutic Yoga Method.
On a mission to redefine what it means to ‘do yoga’, Leslee’s therapeutic yoga & training programs marry the science of physiology with the art of yoga. By acknowledging the rolls that stress, mental health, and spirituality play on our physical healing journeys, the Physiologic Yoga approach delivers the best of what both Eastern and Western medicine have to offer.
As a traveler, adventurer and hiker, she once found herself called to walk the Camino to Santiago and has since published her first book titled “Wide Open: A Moving Experience on the Camino Portugués to Santiago”, which tells, in part, how therapeutic yoga played an important part in her pilgrimage.
Leslee has worked in all types of settings, including instructing and creating curriculum for the school of massage therapy at Camosun College in Victoria, contributing to continuing education for international yoga organizations, and even in hospital settings like post-trauma and joint replacements. She feels incredibly lucky to call Calgary home and can’t wait to meet and contribute to her new community here in Airdrie!
