Meet the floo-id YOGA Instructors
It won’t take you long to know why we have so much pride with our amazing team of yoga instructors; they are friendly, skilled, and love what they do. When scheduling a class we encourage you to read their short bios below as you will get to know our great team who make floo-id YOGA one of the best yoga studios in Phoenix/Scottsdale.
If there is one instructor that you particularly vibe with, consider a one-on-one private yoga session. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you want to learn more about having a private yoga session. If you would like to learn about what yoga classes we offer, click here.

Leslie’syoga practice has changed significantly since she first began yoga classes in her early twenties. “I see yoga as a way to center myself, and not just another form of exercise. I enjoy flow classes as well as Ashtanga and Mysore. I recognize that like life, yoga is also a journey, and I am honored to be a part of that journey with all those I can share the practice with.”
She earned her RYT200 in 2015 here in Phoenix, AZ. She has a B.A. in Elementary Education and has taught pre-school to 2nd grade in the public and private school systems in AZ since 1992.
She live and taught English in Japan after graduating from U of A in Tucson.
A few of her favorite things are traveling, art, culture, the beach, gardens, nature, animals, kids, clean living, health and well being and YOGA!
Originally from Southern California, Tami has been practicing yoga for the past 17 years, spending 7 of them with floo-id YOGA. “In 2011 I tried my first hot yoga class at floo-id YOGA and was hooked!”
The calmness Tami experiences, after each class, are what keeps her driven to continue her practice each day. In the fall of 2016, she decided to participate in the teacher training and immersion program at floo-id YOGA in order to increase her knowledge surrounding yoga.
Tami’s favorite yoga pose is Child’s Pose as it allows her to relax into the floor and breathe deeply. Because of the obstacles it presents with balance and tightness in her legs, Tami finds Revolved Hand to Big Toe pose to be the most challenging.
In 2017 Tami became certified in barre, thanks to her love for ballet, and is excited to “blend ballet inspired workout with yoga” during her classes. Along with her knowledge and experience in both yoga and ballet, Tami advises her students to move at their own pace and do what is best for their bodies, strongly believing in making each person’s practice his or her own.
