Leslie is the founder/lead instructor at I’m So Yoga in Newark NJ. She started her journey because she had been in and out of depression. At 13 she was diagnosed with scoliosis and after years of suffering from back pain she found yoga at the Newark YMCA. She went to classes about three times a week and after a month felt amazing as her back pain level went down. After that she realized everyone should feel as good as herself in yoga and that's when she created I’m So Yoga. Go to imsoyoganewark.com for her class information.
