Our newest teacher at Breathe is Leslie Meador!
Leslie has been an oncology nurse for over 20 years, where she developed a passion for creating wellness in body, mind and spirit as a means of disease prevention. She is a firm believe in where the mind goes, the body follows.
Leslie is a certified life coach by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and started Cornerstone Coaching KC in 2019. She is passionate about empowering others to celebrate wholehearted living through helping them to have clarity on their vision and values, as well as finding fulfillment through living out their purpose.
Recently, she completed her yoga teacher training with Sue Park in June 2021, and is excited to integrate her passion for healing and coaching with practicing and sharing yoga.
Vinyasa flows are Leslie's favorite, as she loves finding creative ways to blend coaching concepts with music and movement. She wants to meet others where they are at and help them connect with themselves. Leslie loves that yoga allows individuals to adapt every flow in a way that works for them, making each flow unique to the person. As her teacher says, "Yoga isn't about getting your body into the postures it's about using the postures to get into your body."
A fun fact about Leslie is that after graduating from nursing school, she lived on a ship in the Philippines for a year doing medical missions. While in the Philippines, her mom bid $275 (a stateside fundraising event) for Leslie to have a date with (her now husband) Kevin. They are now married and share three kids and two dogs. They love enjoying the outdoors through camping, kayaking and traveling.
