Leo Peppas

Leo has been teaching yoga and movement for almost 30 years. He is currently writing a series of yoga books, offering trainings, teaching workshops and mentoring teachers.

At the heart of his unique teaching method, is the fact that everything you do on the yoga mat can relate to your everyday life. Leo has integrated his experience as a qualified movement educator (Body Mind Centering based), a Psychosynthesis therapist, and an extensive study of Rolfing Movement, together with many years of teaching yoga. Having originally studied the Iyengar Yoga method, he has over the years synthesised an understanding of body awareness and movement principles into his teaching and developed a comprehensive approach of his own. Leo’s belief that yoga can present a clear link to the path of self discovery and provide support in everyday life is core to his teaching method. Leo has worked with and drawn inspiration from Donna Farhi and teaches a form of that seeks to return to the original spirit of yoga.

“Leo offers a depth & breadth of experience rare in Yoga teachers today. His commitment to honoring the spirit of Yoga while integrating contemporary knowledge in the field of somatics makes for potent instruction. Yoga students interested in engaging in authentic practice & study have a precious opportunity in this gifted teacher."
-Donna Farhi, author of “Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit” and “Bringing Yoga to Life.”
