Leah Montegut is a yoga teacher/practitioner living in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from Virginia Beach, VA, she came to NYC after receiving her B.F.A. in Dance/Choreography from Virginia Commonwealth University (2000). In search of some relief from the frenzied pace of the city, Leah found her way to yoga. She was immediately drawn to the personal, breath-centered approach offered by her first teacher, J. Brown. In 2007, Leah completed 200 hours of advanced training in yoga anatomy at The Breathing Project (NYC), where she studied with Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews. She continued her studies with J. Brown through the professional training program at Abhyasa Yoga Center (500 hours). Leah is certified to teach prenatal yoga through Integral Yoga Institute (2010), where she studied with Beth Donnelly Caban and Lara Kohn Thompson. Since 2009, Leah has been studying vedic chanting with Guta Hedewig, taught in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar. She continues her study of yoga anatomy through The Breathing Project's advanced studies program. Leah has profound gratitude for the guidance and support of her teachers and is honored to share with her students the teachings she has received.
