BIO: Leigh Anne Milne began her journey with Iyengar yoga in the early 1980’s and fell in love with this intelligent approach to body-mind awareness; as her practice deepened the spiritual benefits became increasingly important. As a registered massage therapist (RMT), a certified Iyengar method yoga instructor, Yoga Therapist and a recognized teacher of teachers with Yoga Alliance, Leigh Anne has found the combined knowledge of yoga, health care and anatomy of the body to be a rich foundation for her holistic practice. She has traveled to India almost annually since 2002 to study yoga directly from the Iyengar family. “I’m incredibly grateful for my direct experience with Mr. Iyengar and the Iyengar Family.”
Leigh Anne met her mentor Fr Joe, founder of Kripa Iyengar yoga, in the mid-90s and continues her Iyengar study with him as one of his senior teachers, focused on yoga as support for addiction recovery, healing pain, suffering, and the whole person.
She leads yoga retreats and professional training internationally. Learn more at www.sadhanayoga.ca
