Etsy Shoppe Owner, Blogger, Content Creator


Leah started practicing yoga nearly a decade ago to help with relieving stress during her college days. She got a 200 hour yoga certification in 2013 at CorePower Yoga. About a year after Leah got her Yoga Certification she decided to complete her Therapeutic Massage Certificate Program at Wabuonsee Community College. Passed her Licensing Boards with flying colors and has been working as an LMT since 2016. It was on a whim that Leah got certified and attuned to become a Reiki Practitioner in 2013 and has made her way up to Reiki Master. Leah’s goal is to make yoga approachable, massage affordable & beneficial, and to make reiki accepted by the masses. Leah is from the suburbs of Chicago and will be soon residing in Houston Texas with her Boyfriend of almost two years. She is also currently enrolled in Breathing Deeply’s Yoga Therapy Program.
