Leeann Carey fell in love with yoga in the late 1970s, and has never wavered in her passion to share the transformational benefits of this ancient yet timeless science of life. Leeann shares that knowledge today through Yapana restorative yoga therapy teacher training programs and workshops, and through LCY mentors across the United States and Canada.
In 1993, Leeann opened the first full-service yoga studio in her South Bay community of Southern California. There she developed important skills for operating a successful “yoga business” and went on to create a teacher training school and the Yapana restorative yoga therapy program. Her eclectic blend of yoga appeals to a wide range of students and was forged over many years of study with gifted teachers including Kofi Busia, Donna Farhi, Richard C. Miller, Erich Schiffmann, and Judith Lasater.
An ERYT-500 registered instructor, Leeann has mastered the traditional techniques and developed new approaches to serve and support any student — young or old, fit or physically challenged — to enrich their lives in body, mind, and spirit. She has applied her knowledge and experience to help professional athletes, including the World Champion Los Angeles Lakers and Olympic Gold Medal Volleyball player Eric Fonoimoana, heal from injuries and improve their workouts and sports performance.
