Leslie Smith earned her BA in Dance Education from the University of South Carolina in 2011. She completed her Bikram Yoga Teaching certification in Fall 2014, Buti Yoga Certification in February 2016, and 200hr Vinyasa Certification with Jared McCann in January 2018. Originally from Maryland, Leslie came into the practice during college as a supplement to her dance major. Now as a defining feature in her life, she is continually drawn to the technical discipline, the ongoing self study, and the journey to finding balance that comes with the yoga practice. Leslie also teaches for Yoga Factory Annapolis & Crofton.
