Leah has had the good fortune of learning from many teachers, but is especially grateful to her long-time teacher Lou Hoyt.
In addition to teaching yoga, Leah has performed on the stage as an actor since 1990. In 1997 her theatre work brought her to Playhouse on the Square in Memphis, Tennessee. She still enjoys performing the occasional role -- most recently in August:Osage County and Eleemosynary.
Leah also enjoys her creative work with Voices of the South in Elaine Blanchard's Prison Stories program. As a guest teacher at Shelby County Department of Corrections Women's Jail East, she encourages the incarcerated women in the writing of their stories, poems and memoirs. Along with a small group of veteran Memphis actresses, she performs these stories on stage at the prison for all the inmates and in public performances as well.
She loves cooking, everything that roots or blooms, and spending good times with cool people.
Leah is moved by the words of Pat Summit, head coach for University of Tennessee's Women's Basketball team. Summit's inspired words: "It is what it is, but it will become what you make of it."
