Best of Boston

2007 Best Yoga Instructor

Amy Leydon, Exhale and The Sports Club/LA

A former Emmy-winning television producer, Leydon spices up traditional (but challenging) vinyasa-flow yoga with inspiring music and unexpected sequences to show aspiring yogis how to find their own path to limber inner peace. Free advice: “Remember that yoga is noncompetitive. We live in a culture that makes it hard to let go of egos, but when you’re doing precarious positions for the first time, you have to back off and go at your own pace.”
