“Sometimes you have to burn yourself to the ground before you can rise like a phoenix from the ashes.” – Jens Lekman
In the summer of 2012 Leela Yoga opened as a private practice operating out of a wellness center in the Country Village. One year later after outgrowing the practice room with a 5 person max, we decided to switch locations, moving to Main Street in Bothell. We opened the studio with the hope of providing a welcoming community where one can practice yoga, feel empowered, and live leela.
On July 22, 2016 our hard work literally went up in flames. The Bothell fire was destructive for us on many levels. The immediate days following were filled with heart ache and loss. However, while it wiped out the studio we created, it did not destroy our community. We received amazing support from students, friends, the Bothell community and the northwest yoga community.
With the support of everyone around us, Leela Yoga Studio moved to 10116 NE 185th Street in Bothell at the Clover Leaf Rebekahs Building. We recently renovated the space and are now able to offer larger class sizes with a more robust class schedule.
