Hi There!  I'm Leslie Kleinfeld MPH, MEd, owner of ,

serving teens to seniors since 1997. I am certified in Personal Fitness & Lifestyle Coaching, Hatha Yoga, and the Egoscue Method of Postural Alignment. My goal is to help you learn how to reach your health potential so you may lead a fuller, more functional, energetic life. 

Together we work holistically-- building upon activities you are able to put into your life.  This includes a postural and nutritional makeover; and increasing muscle strength, joint flexibility, and heart and lung capacity. Hence, you become "fit for health" and able to do things you didn't think you could or haven’t done in years.

As a professional health educator promotingwellness for over 40 years, I have worked in large Municipal Health Departments to private clinics. One of my fortes was working with high-risk youth and I produced a very successful health educational theatre project, "New Image Teen Theatre," in San Diego for six years.

However, in 1995, my own mother inspired me to change my scope from public to private health. Momwas quite obese, sedentary and fighting breast cancer. It became clear to me that had she been more fit going into the fight, she might still be with us today. So I became a certified personal fitness trainer and opened  in 1997. 

I have a particular knack for working successfully with persons with disabilities such as Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and genetic deformities. I believe that ANYone can benefit from some form of movement and that there is always a way to creatively accomplish this.

The other legacy my mother gave me was that of yoga. I still have a mental picture of her standing on her head in total confidence and quiet when I was a teenager. In 1991, I was drawn back to the practice and have been studying with master teachers ever since. 



In 2000 I was among the first graduating class to be certified at the 200-hour level by Lynne Minton's teacher training program at the Inner Dance Yoga Studio in Anchorage, Alaska. 
Since then I have been mentored by other yoga master teachers: GeetaIyengar, Judith Hansen Lasater, Father Joe Perreira, John Friend, Rodney Yee, and Donald Moyer. I have also pursued learning about other postural and movement modalities such as "Balance" with Jean Couch; Feldenkrais; Alexander Technique; and become certified as a Postural Alignment Specialist in the Egoscue Method (Pete Egoscue).  


As a way to broaden my scope of service and assist people who may live in "bush" Alaska or in another country, I became certified as a Master Fitness by Phone® Coach. I am very excited about having this revolutionary fitness solution to offer my clients, because it allows you to become fit for health no matter WHERE you are in the world.
