Leslie Wilda is the founder of Yoga Playgrounds. Her personal practice brought about a feeling of balance, calm and inner joy to her daily life, and Yoga Playgrounds was formed in 2010 from her desire to share the gifts of yoga in a playful way with kids. What started as one teacher teaching one class each week has grown over the years to include additional yoga teachers who together teach hundreds of kids each week in dozens of schools. Leslie maintains a busy teaching schedule and also hosts teacher trainings and professional development workshops to assist others in sharing the practices of yoga and mindfulness with kids. Yoga Playgrounds aims to provide a foundation for lifelong wellness within the bodies, minds and spirits of kids, all while having fun.
