Leah Friend

Leah began her yoga journey in 2010. Prior to that, she was a gymnast for 13 years with various injuries along the way. As a result, she sought the stretching and sustainability yoga offered. She especially loves vinyasa power flows for the hard, but rewarding work, that comes from that practice.

In March of 2017, she found herself at a class for Small World Yoga. She was instantly attracted to the community and connection in the room. Shortly after she became a volunteer for the organization. From there she learned about Baptiste Power Yoga Nashville and graduated from BPYN in March 2018.

Her passion to share her love and knowledge of yoga with others is what led her to work with Small World Yoga as a teacher. She works with adults and athletes, and she has a call to work with the youth in our community to create a more empowered tomorrow. Through her role as the School Partnerships Coordinator, she is able to help create yoga programs for students in schools across Metro Nashville.
