Hi, I’m Leigha.

My heart’s longing is to share peace in the only way I know how: breath by breath, interaction by interaction.

Since yoga helps me to stay grounded, spacious, and easy in my being, I feel drawn to share it.

You can find free yoga on my YouTube channel where I’ve been sharing classes and tutorials since 2006.

You can read some of my (mostly yoga-related) writing here.


What else to know…

I eat a plant-based diet.

I’m a step-momma of two awesome young ladies and an expectant mother of one little boy.

I co-run two yoga studios in Kingston, NY, 90 miles north of NYC.

Lately, I have been able to dedicate more and more time to heart projects like this blog and video production.

I am grateful every day that teaching this ancient practice has put food on my family’s table and shelter over my head. My hope for you is that you feel whole and joyful in as many moments as you possibly can.

Leigha, I’m loving all your practices. I used to exercise every other night, but since finding your videos I’m now motivated to fit in at least a 15 minute flow every night. They are challenging. I often fall over, and they always make me laugh. And I feel so much better for it! Thank you 🙂 -Elizabeth Bowman


What I like about Leigha Butler is that she will push you to the full capacity of your potential and each time you get better and better, stronger and more flexible. If you can’t do what she’s doing don’t worry! In time you will get closer and closer! … Thank you Leigha for sharing. I watch your videos several times a week and you have taught me how to do so many things that I couldn’t do before. -Dawn Cooke


Soft but powerful. -Lee Morgan


The reason I’ve started using your videos as a guide in my own home practice is because I’m learning to find ease and space during the practice that I hadn’t before. Which is what yoga is all about. But as I see it here, it’s clicking a bit more. Especially in held poses, as tho there’s room to sort of walk around within the body. There’s so much space being created and learning to relax within it, so much more graceful and easy room. Hard to describe in words! -Rabbit Bandini
