Weaving together many strands of ancient and modern knowledge — yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, holistic nutrition, and neuroscience — into her practice, Leah Adams is a yoga teacher trainer, mindfulness facilitator, and ongoing student of some of the world’s most masterful carriers of wisdom. She is ever grateful to her Yin Yoga teachers Bernie Clark and Sarah Powers. Leah’s intention is to support others in discovering their own unique blend of effective, resonant modalities, as they walk the path toward sustainable nourishment, holistic vitality and balance. She offers workshops and training on Yin Yoga, functional breathwork, pranayama, meditation, and ayurveda.
As part of her dedication to supporting wellness in the healthcare environment, she has mentored nurse leadership to bring centering exercises to meetings – a practice that has not only been well-received but requested by the team. Leah also created the “60 Seconds to Center” guide for leaders which was featured by the Institute for Corporate Productivity’s 2020 report on Next Practices in Holistic Well-Being (I4PC). Leah is the co-founder of “Being-Well in Healthcare”.
Leah, is a cancer survivor with a former career in advertising and fashion, she believes wholeheartedly that opportunities to practice yoga are everywhere, not only on the yoga mat. She has been invited to teach in the workplace and is delighted to have worked with UW Mindfulness, Virginia Mason, Rosen Harbottle, Yoga Reset, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and Northwest School of Massage.
Leah is a lifelong student who now lives and teaches in the Seattle area. Happiness for Leah is playing in warm ocean waves, sharing late nights and long talks, clumsily playing her guitar, and cooking for friends and family. When not on the cushion you might find Leah blending herbs, making decoctions, serving tea or cuddling her fur babes. She spends every moment she can surrounded by trees.
