Yoga, Meditation, & Mindfulness

Whether you are brand new to yoga, or you are looking to strengthen and deepen an existing practice, my aim is to open your mind, body, and spirit to the wonderful possibilities that exist in this beautiful practice. Yoga has proven itself an incredible tool in both my professional and personal experience, and it is one I am honored to share with whomever is curious, adventurous, and looking to go deeper in all aspects of life.

Leena Culhane is a dedicated yogini and interdisciplinary artist. Her practice took root at a young age and blossomed after relocating from the Bay Area to attend UCLA. With the guidance of several phenomenal teachers, her studies evolved and deepened, permeating every crack in her life and illuminating the realization that indeed, they are how the light gets in. Yoga serves as her main vehicle for introspection, grace, creativity, and holistic wellness. Since completing her 200-hour SmartFLOW teacher training with Annie Carpenter in 2012, Leena has taught all over Los Angeles privately and in group classes, and has created and led workshops and intensives. She also helped establish the donation-based yoga program at the Los Angeles Theater Center in downtown LA. She is currently engaged in her advanced 500-hour SmartFLOW training, with extensive training in modules varying from pre/post-natal yoga to teaching beginners. Leena believes that for every mindful effort, there is an enlightening return. Her classes seek the balance of rigor and softness, mind and body, inquiry and surrender. These elements serve her personal work as a human, and artistic work as a theatre practitioner and musician. She recently traded in a daily surf in Santa Monica for beautiful hikes out skirting Nashville, TN, where she loves to write, cook for her friends, and hang out with her sweet pup, Shakespeare. 

Leena received her primary Yoga training from Annie Carpenter’s 200 hour SmartFLOW Teacher Training program, which is Yoga Alliance Certified. She holds teaching insurance for private and public instruction from Yoga Journal.

Namaste.
