ॐ “Live in the present, forget the past. Give up hopes of the future.” ॐ – Swami Sivananda
Hello, my name is Marc Leonard. I am a loving father of two adult children and married to my wife since 1996 – YOGA found me since we moved from Germany to London back in 2013 when I was 45 years old. I had several burnouts, a major one, and a physical breakdown back in 2009 which ended in a serious car accident. My near-death experience (I was knocked out for a couple of minutes) and the fact that I survived this accident without physical injuries, changed my life! I learned the lesson to slow down and to look after myself – I gradually lost more than 5 stones by changing my lifestyle and habits
After I have been made redundant in a very successful corporate IT Management position, I took the long-seeking opportunity to graduate as a traditional Hatha Yoga Teacher at The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashram London in June 2019.
This intense Teachers’ Training and a full month in seclusion changed my life. From practicing yoga as a physical exercise I became a spiritual yogi and teacher who is passionate to share the 5,000-year-old yoga science and wisdom with lovely students and like-minded people, regardless of their ethical, religious background or gender. Thus, I truly embrace ‘Unity in Diversity’!
I founded Leoprana Ltd. to dedicate my life fully to the teaching of yoga and to provide transformational coaching.
