My love of yoga began many years ago and I am grateful to have experienced multiple forms of this beautiful practice. Over the past 15 years in classes, meditation groups and retreats,  Yoga has supported and benefited me through many of life’s challenges. Following my passion for yoga, my journey led me to complete my level 1 and advanced teacher training with an incredible man by the name of Samir Rane at Yoga and Meditation School of India. 
I also have qualifications in children’s yoga and reiki/energy healing. 
My belief in yoga and wanting to share this life changing practice with others, led to opening ‘Arbour Yoga’ in Oak Park with my dear friend Kim Edwards.  We are so proud of the incredible community that we have created and the amazing people that we get to share with. 
I will always be a ‘student’ of this amazing practice, and look forward to continuing my journey, growing and sharing along the way.

what people are saying about Leisha Newman


Two beautiful yoga instructors, Leish & Kim - both very experienced. Every single class can accommodate beginners, but also with different poses if you're wanting to do the stretch further. Yoga at Arbour has changed my life ( not to mention my back and posture). Not pricey and great people who attend also! If you want that family , loving and comfortable vibe, 12/10 stars for these guys!


Lovely space, calming energy. Love coming here.


5 stars!
