In Yoga, we explore our bodies, our sensations and energies.




Your body knows how to be powerful.  Yoga taps into that source of power and energy.  When you move in unexpected ways while you pay close attention to how you feel, you begin to access the strength and wisdom stored within your being.  Becoming expansive and owning your space with your body automatically shifts your consciousness, attitude, and emotional state.  You can tap into the power of your body and use that power to move more confidently through your world.

In yoga, we explore our bodies, our sensations and energies.  We learn to move with clarity and purpose while focusing our attention and benefitting from the awakened awareness already within us.

At LeeAnn’s you can explore your body through our Gentle yoga classes and through our evening classes for more of a challenge.   Our teachers have years of experience and can accommodate your personal physical challenges.  Check out our classes and find one that will help you tap into the power you already have.

Amy Griffin

Amy Griffin came to yoga from a background in long distance running looking for a way to “gain flexibility”. Little did she know that the “flexibility” she would gain would be accompanied by a profound appreciation for the healing practice of yoga for her body, mind, and spirit. Amy has been practicing yoga for over 12 years and teaching yoga for over 5 years. She completed her yoga teacher training through Empowered Yoga in Wilmington, Delaware in 2014 (RYT200) and is in the process of getting her 500-hour certification. She is also a certified meditation instructor who leads meditation classes targeting the “twentysomething” age group. She is a faculty member in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Delaware where she does research on the brain mechanisms of memory. She teaches a popular course called “Mindfulness and the Brain” along with other neuroscience undergraduate and graduate courses. Amy brings a calm, healing energy to her yoga classes. She encourages her students to, in Pema Chodron’s words, “start where you are” and to allow the yoga practice to acquaint them with their inherent goodness.

Super Gentle Yoga – Thursday

Class Description
This class focuses on releasing tensions at the core of the body in the muscles that attach to the spine. The premise is, when the spine is open, all the muscles of the body are stronger and more flexible. Students should be able to get down onto the floor. Chairs are available and will be used, as well as mats, blankets and blocks to make the poses comfortable and accessible. This is a deeply relaxing 1 1/2 hour class that will dramatically reduce pain, increase flexibility and help put you in touch with the bliss that is your natural state of being.

Instructor: Leslie Beckett
