K-Lea is available for private Yoga sessions and teaches special workshops & classes at 4 Corners Yoga owned by Kathy Curran in Durango, CO and Sage Yoga Studio owned by Sara Tweedie in Farmington, NM. (See Current Schedule) K-Lea is Iyengar certified at the Intermediate Junior Level II.

As a young teenager K-Lea was surrounded by Yogis. Her mother, June LaSalvia, was her first teacher.
K-Lea was exposed to several styles of yoga until she was 22 then narrowed her focus solely to Iyengar Yoga during her pregnancy with her daughter, Chelsea. Seeking to dive deeper into the minutia of alignment, she began training for Iyengar certification and teaching full-time in 1990.

K-Lea attained her first Iyengar certification in 1999. She was the founder/owner of two Yoga studios in Nashville, TN of which 12South Yoga is still successfully sharing the art of Iyengar Yoga. She is currently Iyengar Certified at the Intermediate Junior 2 Level and has made several trips to Pune, India to study with the Iyengars. Her personal background in gymnastics and certification in body-oriented transpersonal psychotherapy, meditation and breath-work have enriched her teaching immensely.

K-Lea has taught special events for Yoga Journal and appears in the Gaiam Living Arts Video "Conditioning for Life”. She has led several workshops in the United States and Canada and for several years provided itinerant subbing services for yoga studios/instructors. K-Lea continues her professional development through her studies with many inspiring teachers namely Patricia Walden and John Schumacher.

Teacher Statement:"I teach classes for all levels from new beginners to advanced practitioners and teachers. I enjoy instructing special needs classes such as pregnancy, restorative, and back care classes."
