Testimonial:

“I have been lucky enough to work with Leo for the last 2 months. In this short time I have gained a great deal of confidence and I know that I have become a better teacher. I am more concise, present, and knowledgeable about basic and refined alignment. This has led to very happy returning students, they much appreciate the style and care that Leo has helped me cultivate.

It has been wonderful working with Leo, he is a yoga nerd (I say this in the most loving way!) but never pretentious, he has a great deal of knowledge to share but never overwhelms me with unnecessary information. I always leave our sessions with a class plan that I feel proud to teach; an excellent understanding of the postures I am teaching and HOW to teach them; and a deeper understanding of my own yoga practice. Leo is supportive, fun, knowledgeable and inspiring, I will continue to work with him as a mentee and I highly recommend him.”     – Kelly Ebbers RYT 200 


" After finishing my first 200 hour teacher training, I found myself asking the question- What’s next? Having all the tools and knowledge of a teacher, but not yet comfortable to apply them, I went looking into a mentorship program. I heard many positive stories about Leo through his involvement with Lululemon, and decided to take his class. Immediately I connected with his teaching style. His presence is powerful, yet approachable which made it easy for us to connect. Throughout our weeks together my program was moulded by my goals that we discussed on our first meeting.


After practicing with Leo I find myself listening for cues that motivate me, and taking mental notes of things I pick up on in other teachers classes, I am constantly looking to improve my teaching. I have gained so much confidence in myself as a teacher and have been given great teaching opportunities with help from Leo! Through his incredible knowledge, inspiring cuing, and humour, Leo’s teaching ignited an advance in mine."       - Melanie Palis RYT 200
