Leslie Young www.mountainyoga.ca
Leslie Young, owner of Mountain Yoga, began exploring yoga as a teenager looking for depth. Teaching in Whistler since 1991, Leslie divides her time between the mountains and the ocean…teaching in Belize, Mexico, Cortez Island at Hollyhock and on Savary Island, where she is building a home/retreat.
In the Krishnamacharya lineage, she certified both in the Iyengar tradition originally and again with Dona Holleman and Orit Sen-Gupta, founder of Vijnana Yoga. Biotensegrity and the explorations of Gioia Irwin continue to weave into her practice. Leslie’s approach balances flow and precision and explores space and freedom in the body and mind. Her committment to spiritual practice runs deep, inspired by Vipassana meditation and Dhamma studies with Jayanta and the teachings of Adyashanti. She brings yoga’s ancient practices alive exploring meditation, pranayama, mudras, asana and sutras with passionate enthusiasm. Teaching for over 20 years, Leslie has trained teachers locally and beyond, encouraging all to find the truth of unconditional love and freedom.
