AUDREY LE

Yoga Instructor & Founder

Audrey is a native New Orleanian. After a hiatus during which time she completed training as a pediatric emergency medicine doctor she returned to the city she loves. She discovered yoga in 2003 as a way to relieve the stress of her medical training. Informed by the peace of mind that a steady practice has brought her, she enjoys assisting people of all ages in discovering the beneficial health effects of a consistent yoga practice. She believes that the body awareness and mindful movement practiced in yoga helps integrate our body, mind, and spirit so that we can keep moving and thriving through life. Whether you've been practicing for just a few weeks or a few decades, yoga can help keep you resilient and aging gracefully.

 

Audrey has a 200 hour RYT certification through Yoga Medicine with Tiffany Cruikshank and completed an acupuncture certification through the Integrated Structural Acupuncture Program from the University of New England in Boston, MA. She is also a board certified lifestyle medicine physician.

DARRA OKEEFE

Yoga Instructor and Co-Owner

Darra has been practicing yoga for over 25 years and teaching for 20. 

Darra believes that "yoga" is nothing more than increased body awareness and combines yoga's basic principles of breath, alignment, and core activation as the foundation to all of her classes.   She believes that quality of movement is key to producing results without trauma to the joints, and furthermore, feels that these principles are meant to be carried over to daily life and all other fitness activities. Her goal is for each individual to modify classes for their own body, realizing that we all come to the mat with very different physical histories.  With enhanced body awareness, every class should be unique to each individual.

Her hobbies include spiritual fitness, rehabbing houses and furniture and repurposing discarded items.  She collects all things old especially wood.  She is always ready for a new project.
