Leon London’s yoga story started 20 years ago. His first practice was with Billy Doyle (BWY), and this was the beginning of a lifelong passion.
Involved in martial arts from a very early age, Leon has always been intrigued by the possibilities and potential of the body. This eventually led him on his journey to study many forms of physical culture; from boxing to capoeira, as well as becoming a qualified sports massage therapist in 1999.
Leon has studied Kashmir hatha, Dharma Yoga, Vinyasa, Ashtanga and Rocket/Progressive Ashtanga Yoga, and hot yoga. He has trained with Kino McGregor, Danny Paradise, Patrick Beach, Doug Swenson, David Robson, Miguel Santana, Yuval Ayalon (Yuval on Hands) and at the Ido Portal academy.
He humbly cites Sri Dharma Mittra in New York and Emi Tull in London (Dharma Yoga), David Kyle (Rocket), David Swenson and Ryan Spielman, and Balu Thevar (Ashtanga) in India as his teachers, and thanks them for their knowledge.
Leon undertook an Ashtanga Teacher Training with David Swenson (primary and secondary series), then trained in advanced Rocket/Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa (300hrs) with David Kyle, with whom he is a Senior Instructor and Mentor within his system (Ashtanga Yoga Puerto Rico). He has also trained with, and taught for, Jamie and Dulce (The Yoga People).
In addition, Leon completed the Dharma Yoga Life of a Yogi (DY LOAY) 500-hour Teacher Training with Sri Dharma Mittra.
He is also an primal flow teacher, fitness and movement coach.
Leon’s students enjoy his vast knowledge of the body gained over 20 years of experience, and the fun, friendly, inspiring classes he shares with them. Leon has also conducted 4 inspiring retreats alongside Ambra Valo.
