You already know our back-country editor Leonie Sherman is a passionate plant-based wilderness athlete, but did you also know she’s a Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher who has taught yoga and meditation for 15 years? She loves introducing students to the joys of being present in their bodies and her teaching style skillfully combines her spiritual practice, athletic ability and infectious enthusiasm for life.


Thanks to all who have joined for yoga classes my first week back from the mountains. I’m happy to be home and loving connecting with you as we nurture our bodies. Please join me for an upcoming class!
As always, I’ll open each class ten minutes before we start so we can connect and socialize if that feels good to you. If we haven’t done yoga together before please show up a little early so you can tell me about what you’re looking for and any physical limitations you may have. Don’t be shy to show up a bit late, just please be sure to mute your mic when you enter.
All times are listed in Pacific Time, and I’ve included notes about which other time zones might enjoy the classes. The Zoom meeting ID for all classes is 502 438 8737 and the password is gratitude.
I’m delighted to offer classes for free, but if you want to donate any amount, you can do so via my PayPal account,
