LEIGH ANN HANDEL began practicing yoga in 2006 and began teaching yoga after her first training with Ana Forrest in 2008. She is currently a full time yoga teacher and the program director for takeyoga studios. After 8 years of personal practice, over 650 hours of teacher training, and over 1,000 hours of teaching experience, she aspires to teach yoga as a beautiful tool to heal the body, mind, and spirit. She credits her AcroYoga practice with teaching her new lessons in trust and communication.

In her “off the mat” time, Leigh Ann likes to read as much as possible and cook adventurously.

MICHAEL CUTRIGHT began his yoga practice in early 2012 and rapidly built up to a twice daily practice. Within a year, he chose to pursue teacher training with Ana Forrest, and he now teaches regularly at takeyoga studios and yogalove. Mike’s Forrest Yoga and AcroYoga classes create space for yogis to sweat, laugh, breathe, and think.

In his “off the mat” time, Mike reads, writes, hikes, bikes, cooks, and mulls over the worlds problems.
