Angie Eckenroth, E-RYT 200
As an avid runner for many years, Angie eventually learned the toll that the sport had taken on her body. She developed sciatica nerve problems in her right leg. It hurt to run, drive and sometimes walk. Desperate to find relief, Angie took her first yoga class in 2002 and was amazed at how much more mobile she felt after just one class. After an on again, off again practice, she decided to deepen her commitment to yoga and enrolled in her first yoga teacher training.
She has since continued her training, completing her RYT 200, and has begun working toward her 500 hour training. Angie is owner of Radiant Yoga Studio and Radiant Yoga Retreats based in Overland Park, Kansas. She also is co-owner and co-leader of Kansas City Yoga Teacher Training in Kansas City. Her teaching style is fun, light hearted with an emphasis on safe alignment but with the understanding that everyone is unique and it's important to make yoga accessible for everyone. Her favorite saying is, "make the pose fit your body rather than your body fit the pose." She has been inspired by the teachings of Doug Keller, Matthew Taylor and Seane Corn.
Leah Morgan, CYT 200
Leah began her yoga journey as a student many years ago out of a curiosity. Wondering what all the fuss was about, she rolled out a mat at a local health club and gave it a shot. With that first class she started down a path of yoga that ultimately led to Leah becoming a 200-hour+ trained yoga teacher. Studying with inspiring yoga leaders Leah has honed her unique style, which is a fusion of breathing, alignment, honoring your body, living in the moment and having fun.
This is Leah’s second yoga studio, having sold her previous one in Lee’s Summit in 2010. She is also the co-creator of the Kansas City Yoga Festival and the Kansas City Yoga Teacher Training program.
Whether your goal is to begin or grow a practice, increase your strength and flexibility, learn how to control stress, or become a part of an amazing local community, Leah can help you achieve these goals. In turn, you can begin building a more independent and productive lifestyle. She believes that the sense of peace and transformation that a yoga practice can bring will astound you.
