At the age of 18, Leslie moved to New York City to study at Joffrey Ballet School. Everyday on her way up to her dance classes, she would pass Modo Yoga NYC. The summer before her last year at JBS she decided to join the EE program. She immediately noticed the external and internal benefits of her yoga practice. From then on she continued to dedicate time on her mat while dancing on various projects throughout NYC. In 2019 she traveled to Ecuador where she received her 500 hour Modo Level 1 training and immediately joined the roster of wonderful teachers that taught her for so many years. She is deeply grateful for everything that brought her to joining the Modo Yoga LA team!
