Leanne Mitchell

 loves an intricate yoga flow with plenty of strong arm balances and inversions; matched by bendy backbends and forward folds. She describes her style as dynamic flow with a hearty portion of healing restoration and focus on self-care and compassion.
After competing as a gymnast & dancer from a young age, Leanne found yoga to be a welcome break from the demanding world of team sports. Yoga & teaching carried her all the way through college and into a full-time teaching career as an adult.
As a full-time realtor now, yoga & teaching has proven to be a necessary outlet and form of therapy. Leanne feels a strong connection to community and loves to deliver a heart-felt & humor-infused flow to every class.

Spirit Bear Buzz

'Come here to fall in love with Yoga (all over again, if applicable).
If you happen to be new to yoga or want to perfect you're downward dog, I highly recommend the Intro Series -- Christy and Lali taught mine and both were supportive, knowledgable and adorable in every way...'

'...In the the few months that I've been going, I've attended classes taught by five different instructors and they've all been amazing. Most classes are an hour and a half, but they do offer an intense hour long class on Sat mornings that they call the Hour of Power. I've seriously never sweated so much in my life as I do during these classes...'

'This studio is one of the best around. I used to live down the road and took classes here regularly enough to become a studio assistant.  The heat and temperature at Spirit Bear is by far the best I have seen. A lot of placed in Boston I have been to don't seem to have it quite right.  Spirit Bear is also CLEAN!!! I hate going into a class where there are sweat puddles and hair from the previous class on the floor. I really like the instructors (who are educated and in tune) and the flow of the classes are great. I wish there were more studios like Spirit Bear in Boston.'
