Leona loves managing The Living Well Studio, primarily because she is part of facilitating the greatness of some amazing practitioners to help restore optimal wellness to the studio’s family of clients. As a personal trainer who recently completed an extended major in psychology, Leona knows people—what motivates them and what depletes them.

Her passion for health and wellness stems from past personal struggles with weight and a difficult upbringing. She is living, breathing proof that we can achieve anything we set our mind to and Leona brings life experience and expert knowledge to help each of her clients achieve their own greatness. She believes in preparing people to live in the world as it is through movement along with mental and spiritual health; and that humans truly are miraculous beings, we’re just often too busy to notice.

To further solidify her coaching and to be able to offer a truly holistic approach to health, Leona recently added a diploma in Pilates movement therapy and a certificate in allied health assistance to her ever growing list of qualifications. She continues her studies in cognitive psychology, epigenetics and mindfulness.

She appreciates the caring and supportive Living Well team who take care of each client the moment they walk through the door and will gladly assist you with any challenges you may be facing in your personal wellness journey.

Leona is personally and professionally pursuing further study in psychology, epigenetics and mindfulness.
