Leah Gencheff

Leah has been part of the YogaBodyWorks community since she moved to Newcastle in 2012. She practiced at the studio throughout her entire pregnancy and recognised its importance and positive impact it had on her pregnancy and childbirth experience.  She wanted to offer a community to the women who attend yoga during their pregnancies, as well as knowledge, enthusiasm, positivity and a of course a little challenge. 

She received her yoga teaching certificate in Brisbane in 2010 after years of practicing in Denver, Colorado. It was when she was studying for her masters in Occupational Therapy that she wanted to take her practice and knowledge to the next level to coincide with, and complement her therapy studies. 

Leah strives to bring positivity to her classes and believes that having a positive outlook towards childbirth teaches woman to believe in her body and feel empowered.  She offers a wonderful class to help women prepare their bodies for the demands of pregnancy, labour and delivery.
