YOUR TEACHING STYLE: Sweet Flow of Mindfulness Bliss
MUSIC/SONGS ON ROTATION IN YOUR CLASS: A mixture of beach vibes, acoustic soul, and up-beat jams that will make you want to rock out
FAVORITE YOGA POSE: Heart-openers that inspire and channel confidence, freedom, and openness. To me, there's nothing like a good heart bench, and/or fish pose, to energize and restore the body.
FAVORITE PHILLY RESTAURANT: Farmicia (farm-to-table and so delish!)
TWO THINGS STILL LEFT ON YOUR BUCKET LIST: Deep sea diving, hot air balloon ride
IF YOU HAD ONE EXTRA HOUR OF FREE TIME A DAY, HOW WOULD YOU USE IT: to practice more yoga

Inspired by her grandmother, who danced professionally in NYC, Lee-Ann’s life-long love for dance and movement began at a young age. She grew up in Southern Maryland, training as a young dancer in ballet, jazz, tap, and modern dance, competing, and performing nationally.
Lee-Ann went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Dance from the Univ. of Maryland. She danced professionally for the NBA’s Washington Wizards dance team for three seasons and performed with a modern dance company in Washington, DC. With 12+ years of being a dance instructor of various styles, Lee-Ann specializes in jazz technique, ballet barre, and tap dance instruction to both children and adults.
Lee-Ann is a registered yoga instructor (RYT 200) through Bombay Yoga Company. In June 2018, she completed her training for trauma-sensitive yoga at Transformation Yoga Project. With her business skill-sets, having a Master’s of Business degree from Univ. of Maryland, she has created yoga for Wellness Programs at organizations (including the one she works for) and hopes to further her reach with these initiatives. In class, she integrates her background of movement trainings, knowledge of body alignment, and pure lust for mindfulness to bring an uplifting energy to her students.
Lee-Ann enjoys sharing her passion for movement on all levels and exchanging good vibes with others in the community!
