From Empowered Graduates...

The Empowered Program with Leah has given me all of the missing pieces of information I lacked with other teacher trainings. I felt the entire program was beautiful and cohesive and surpasses other YTT programs I attended.

Leah is an articulate and organized teacher who has clearly thought out the contents of the Empowered Program to give students a well-rounded education. She is just a beautiful and gifted teacher.

- Dina R.

The EMPOWERED training was a life-changing experience. It helped me find and own my power. It helped me heal, so I can truly be of service to others. My teachers Leah and Shelby are incredibly humble, kind, and funny, and they helped me see my own light. 

Words cannot express the growth and wisdom this training has brought into my life. 

I feel confident. I feel ready. I feel empowered.

Hey there, I'm Leah.

I am a holistic life coach, yoga + wellness expert, author of Power Yoga: Strength Sweat, and Spirit, and the Founder of the Empowered Yoga School. Thank you for being here!

My passion lies in synthesizing ancient yogic practices and wellness principles, making them accessible and relevant for life today. In my classes, you'll experience a blend of strength, surrender, and celebration, guiding you to explore your practice with joy and intention.

Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of leading Yoga at the White House from 2009 through 2016, as part of a Presidential initiative promoting health and wellbeing for children and families. I've been honored to grace the cover of Yoga Journal Magazine and serve as the in-house Yoga Expert & Wellbeing Coach for Roundglass.com, a holistic wellbeing app.

I live in beautiful Austin, TX, and my greatest honor is being a mama.

Drawing from my extensive experience in yoga and wellbeing, I've developed the Empowered Yoga School. It brings me immense joy to share the transformational teachings of yoga and wellbeing with students like you.
