Rebecca Kropschot, Flexibility Educator
Leslie Wolfe, Flexibility Educator
Leslie Wolfe found a love for yoga in 2014 and discovered another love, running, in 2015. After running 3 half marathons in 2016, she realized how much yoga helped her throughout her training. With a Bachelor's and Master's in Education, and 9 years teaching experience, Leslie decided to combine her passion for teaching with her passion for yoga and became a Registered Instructor. She believes implementing a regular stretching practice into athletic training will not only help with flexibility, but also endurance, breathing, balance, and mental and physical strength. When Leslie is not teaching flexibility classes you can find her at the pool, making memories with her kids, reading a good book, and enjoying all St. Louis has to offer (especially Cardinals baseball)!!
