Meet your


 Hi! My name is Leslie and I'm so glad you're here. I started yoga for journalists in the midst of the pandemic. Yoga has been my life's work and literally helped save my life personally and professionally.

Early on in my career, I dealt with a lot of s*@! It was tough. I had anxiety, dealt with secondary trauma from news, doubted myself and could not relax. I dreaded going to work and some days I didn't have time for yoga because what studio offers a 10pm class after my shift? So I became a teacher and taught myself.

I wish I would've had a "News Yogi" in my life to help guide me through those dark days I went through. Now, I'm sharing the tools I used to help me deal with this crazy career we chose.

Taking a yoga class here and there is great, but imagine if you could have a plan to help during those weeks news cripples us mentally. Stop guessing and let me help you find your own path and what works for YOU in the yoga and wellness space to help manage stress and get back to your mission in journalism.

Yoga Practice

Each week you'll have the option for 2 practices as part of the 6-week course. One will be recorded, the other is a live Saturday morning class. The theme will directly related to lessons from each week.

Lessons at your own pace

Each week you'll have 4 lessons to complete, each less than 15 minutes. These can be taken at your own pace as we know undoubtedly news will be news and our schedules are crazy.

One-on-One Coaching Calls

We'll have 4 coaching calls throughout the 6 week course. Each will be an opportunity to discuss, check in, ask questions and meet in community with other News Yogis. These are in addition to live Zoom classes you'll have access to every Saturday during the course.

Got Questions? I've got answers:

I'm not flexible, can I still do this course?

My teacher always said, do you mean you're not mentally flexible? haha but 100% yes! Just like anything else we try in life, we don't do it because we're experts at it. We do it to grow and get better.

When does the course start?

This is a self-paced course to let you move through the material as needed.

How long will I have access to the course?

For life! You'll be able to go back an re-watch anytime you need.

What if I don't love the course?

I want this to be something you can benefit from. Contact me within 24 hours and I'll give you a refund.

Will this course substitute therapy?

Please contact your doctor before starting any physical or mental wellness program. This is not a substitute for therapy or medical visits.

I'm really excited to take this, but I'm really tight on money...

I'd love to help fellow newsies for free, but I have to charge for my valuable time. Just one yoga teacher training is $3,500 and I've invested thousands in learning these yogic techniques. See this as an investment in yourself and your mental health. These are tools you will have access to for life!
