Leah Saurenmann is a Fort Worth TX native, and mother of two beautiful sons. In 2015, Leah began exploring the positive effects of yoga on her oldest son Jon, who was diagnosed with a severe neuromuscular disease at birth, and a secondary neurodegenerative disease at age 26. Together, Leah and Jon began to unlock years of repressed stress and fear surrounding his diagnosis and Leah found a vehicle for caring for her own body that was often overworked by the physical aspects of caregiving. Leah later joined Lauren Wessinger and Amber Shumake on a celebrated journey into adaptive yoga, with the core belief that yoga is a healing, inclusive practice that should have no barriers. In 2017, Leah became one of the first alumni of Soul.Full School, completing her 200 hour certified yoga teacher training with Soul Space.
