Leena Miller Cressman
Leena fell in love with yoga at age thirteen and has been sharing her passion for yoga in Kitchener-Waterloo since 2008. She became owner/director of QSY in 2012. Her mission is for QSY to be a space that supports practice, grows community, and helps students cultivate more vibrant lives.
Leena's teaching blends functional and dynamic movement, strength building (even in muscles you didn’t know you had!), careful alignment, and mindful breath work. She believes yoga practice can help us befriend our bodies and cultivate more calmness and compassion on and off the mat.
One of Leena’s passions is building a rich learning community and training new teachers through QSY's Yoga Teacher Training Program. Leena is registered with the Yoga Allianceas an E-RYT-500 (Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher). Leena has completed over 1,000 hours of training in Anusara Yoga and other alignment-based and vinyasa styles, functional anatomy, Ayurveda, and teaching pedagogy. She is grateful for her many mentors, including Christi-an Slomka, Meaghan Johnson, Darren Rhodes, Matthew Remski, Trudy Austin, and her co-teachers at QSY.
