Leaflin discovered yoga through a friend in 1998 and was hooked from the first forward fold. She understood immediately that in order to fully receive this gift, she needed to share it, and by 2000 had enrolled in her first teacher training with the incomparable Diane Wilson of Portland, OR. Since then she has completed several teacher training including a 200hr training at Atmananda Yoga in NYC, and a 230hr training in Body-Mind Centering with Lisa Clark. She also completed beginning and advanced training in Thai Yoga Massage with Kam Thye Chow of the Lotus Palm school in Montreal.
