Movement has always been a huge part of my life. I fell in love with yoga when I was studying psychology and working in mental health, alongside working in the fitness industry as a dance teacher.
I traveled to India to complete my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training and graduated with a Diploma in Yoga Education in 2018 at the stunning Govardhan Ecovillage School of Yoga in Maharashtra.
I began teaching in gyms and fitness centers, but my real passion was using yoga, meditation, and mindfulness in my mental health work.
I had seen the benefits of yoga for so many types of people while I was working in psychiatric hospitals and disability centers in Asia, and knew that this was something special.
I launched The Be Kind Project in March of 2019 as a nonprofit because I wanted to be able to bring yoga to as many people as possible. You can read the full story here, but long story short, we had some trial and error.
In 2019 I completed my training in Adaptive Yoga for (dis)Ability with Australia's leading adaptive yoga teacher. From there I was all in, with a renewed passion for making yoga as accessible as I could possibly make it, and Bumblebee Yoga was born.
Alongside yoga, I work in mental health. I currently have a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours), and am planning to return to university to complete my postgraduate studies in 2021 so that I can become a registered clinical psychologist in a few years time.
WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
Bumblebee Yoga is one of my favourite hours of the week. Leah is a lovely instructor who works with you to get the most out of yoga and is always happy to accommodate everyone's needs. She always says anyone can do yoga and she makes that possible. Leah makes it such a supportive environment, I highly recommend her yoga sessions.
Leah is an amazing yoga instructor, she has a great deal of yoga knowledge and has a caring, kind, and patient nature. Her classes are lots of fun and always to the ability of the participants. I would definitely recommend Leah (Bumblebee yoga) to anyone looking to start or expand their yoga experience.
