Leslie St. John


Leslie St. John is a self-expression muse, helping people get “unstuck.” Using the modalities of yoga, qoya, and writing, she helps you unshackle creativity, feel your body as an ally, and cultivate more self-intimacy. She is the creator of Prose and Poses and offers yoga and writing retreats.

Leslie holds an MFA in poetry from Purdue University and is author of Beauty Like a Rope (Word Palace Press). Her writing is published in Elephant Journal, Teach, Yoga, Yoga Revolutionaries, Apersus Quarterly, Oxford American, Rebelle Society and Verse Daily. She teaches Literature at Cal Poly.

A 500-hour RYT, she has studied with Tias Little, Noah Maze, and Rocky Heron. Her classes have been described as “Sweaty and Spiritual.” Be prepared to move. Deepen your connection to your true self.

You can find her writing at a cafe, hunting vintage shops, or hiking with her beagle Lucy in the hills of San Luis Obispo, California.
