Leslie Gickman

About The Teacher

Leslie teaches a broad spectrum of yoga, from the dynamic flow of Vinyasa, the deep experience of yin, and the stillness of meditation. Her Pause, Breathe, Notice, Feel ideology is the basis for this comprehensive approach to teaching. She believes there is a yoga for “every body” and strives to be mindful of the student's experience so she can meet them exactly where they are. Safe, intelligent, creative, classes are always the priority but intuition and connection are what inspires her. Growing the community is Leslie’s passion, she’s worked diligently to create opportunities that make yoga accessible to all with weekly and annual events - both create free outdoor yoga and connect thousands of people worldwide. Part of her mission is to also elevate the level of education for yoga teachers. The teachers are out there sharing yoga with the students and they deserve to be taught with the highest level of integrity that honors the traditions of this life changing practice. Leslie is always seeking to elevate herself, the community and the collective energy of the world through the practice of yoga. Leslie is an ambassador for lululemon athletica. Her relationship with them comes from a shared passion for building community and common core values. Aligning with them and other companies that share these values is important and collaborating with them is the key to success at her annual MEGA class, Something BIG in South Florida with 2,000 attendee’s each year. What really matters most is her family. All her work is supported by her husband Andy, and two children, Molli and Braeden. They inspire Leslie every day to live by example and be the very best she can be. Through yoga Leslie has come to see how the lessons on the mat open up all the possibilities in your life…
