Leah Kim graduated from UCLA with a degree in Economics, but it wasn't long before she realized her life would be much better spent on the mat than in a cubicle. Leah had the privilege of regularly practicing with many internationally recognized teachers, most notably Bryan Kest, Ally Hamilton, and Erich Schiffmann, while living for nearly a decade in the modern-day yoga mecca of Santa Monica. This is where she built her teaching foundation and turned her heart's passion into a professional reality.
During the summer of 2007, Leah moved halfway across the globe to Hong Kong on an intuitive whim, and taught at Pure Yoga, the most well-known yoga studio chain in Asia. Leah has also traveled to several different countries to teach and present at conferences.
Since the spring of 2009, Leah has been Nike's Global Yoga Ambassador and Master Trainer. She leads trainings and events around the world and designs yoga programs for Nike, most recently for the Nike Training Club app, which has millions of users and a strong cult following.
Leah is also sponsored by Jade Yoga, yogitoes, and VitaCoco.
Now based in London, Leah brings years of dedicated practice, study, and training to her teaching, rooting into the traditional foundation of yoga, but also incorporating a contemporary understanding and integration into the truth of each individual today. She honors all the layers of the practice, through which you can open into your infinite potentiality, physical and otherwise. She teaches the physical postures as a way to stay vibrant, healthy, and well, and her style is Vinyasa Flow.
