Leah Richards is a 200 hour certified yoga instructor and a trained Reiki Practitioner.  Her yoga certification is in Power Flow Yoga from Corepower Yoga and she got her Reiki training through Sandra Coyner.  Leah currently teaches four different styles of yoga: Vinyasa Flow Yoga,  Power Flow Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Yin Yoga.  She teaches at currently nine locations around the Chicagoland area in Kane & Dekalb County.   She is a Northern Illinois University Alumni with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science.  

Leah’s mission is to make yoga accessible to all different shapes, sizes, and ages.   Being plus-size and living with a few medical conditions (Hashimoto’s disease, Narcolepsy, Fibromyalgia, and a severe vitamin d deficiency), she understands and respects everyone’s level of practice is different and offers many different variations of the different poses so everyone is successful in class.  Leah would be honored and humbled to help guide you through your yoga journey.  She cannot wait to help you experience all the wonderful benefits of yoga.

Leah completed a 10 year goal in the making by attending and finishing the Therapeutic Massage Program at Waubonsee Community College in May of 2016.  She is excited to help people live happier and healthier lives through therapeutic massage just as massage has helped her live a, "normal," life.  

With the combination of Yoga, Reiki, & Massage she hopes to provide total body wellness for the body, mind, and spirit.

Leah did a very focused and intentional session with me concentrating on points of my body where my daily and work schedule takes serious tole on my on me! She took time to listen to what I needed and what my body needed. Leah is excellent at her craft. I'd highly recommend her if you need any body work done. She is profesional, kind, listens, and delivers a quality massage experience. She is also wonderful yoga instructor. Highly recommend!!!!

Range of movement and pain very much improved with each session.

Leah has the knowledge of musculature and skill in therapy to locate and relieve pain. Her firm touch is just enough to ease the tension without leaving you in the after-pain of many massage therapists. Easy to talk to, sensitive in spirit-- Loved my experience with her.

Leah starts every visit with how I’m doing and what my needs are for each massage. It’s such a relaxing experience.

Leah was absolutely phenomenal! She made me feel comfortable in my body, and gave me an incredibly relaxing massage. Through my time with Leah, I feel more connected to my body, and rejuvenated. I can't speak highly enough for her skill, her energy, and her kind heart. I can't wait to meet with her again.
