Leslie Phillipsie

Founder and Creative Director, E-RYT, YACEP

Leslie is absolutely thrilled to be a part of the vision that is now the Om Lounge. Born and raised in the Steel City, she spent her childhood as a competitive dancer and baton twirler. Performing on stage for hundreds came easy for her and something she truly enjoyed. Over the years, staying physically fit has always been a priority, but she discovered yoga when the gym just wasn't enough anymore. She needed that creative outlet that balanced the mental and physical aspects of overall health. One day she walked into a yoga studio to change things up - and it was the attention to the fluid yoga breath and focus on lengthening muscles with purpose and direction that really attracted her to the practice. Over time, she became aware of the many positive benefits that made themselves known... and as the love for her yoga practice grew, becoming a teacher was simply inevitable. Leslie completed her 200 hour Teacher Training thru Yoga Flow Pittsburgh and has workshopped under the tutelage of Kino McGregor and Chrissy Carter. 

Leslie's love of music has molded her teaching style into a new and exciting experience. Each week her playlist will change, ranging from Classical Piano to Hip Hop to Jazz to the (almost) famous Game of Thrones playlist -- anything goes! Follow @omloungeyoga on Instagram to get a sneak peak of her music and mantra theme of the week. In her classes, you'll get nice and sweaty with challenging sequences focusing on strength and extension.  You will become stronger, physically and mentally - all the while making the practice your own. 

When not working as an Account Manager for a Corporate Housing firm or hanging at the Om Lounge, Leslie enjoys live music of all kinds, traveling with her sister, happy hour with friends and snuggling with her fuzzy black kitty cat, Tyrion.
