Lesa M. Green
Since the age of two, Lesa has trained in Ballet, Tap and Jazz. She added Hip Hop to her repertoire in high school and Modern dance in college. She has won numerous awards from dance competitions and has created award-winning pieces of choreography. Lesa feels extremely fortunate to have trained at The Ailey School in New York (home of The Alvin Ailey Dance Company) in 2001. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts in Dance from UCSD (2003), she went on to choreograph for Southwestern College, various San Diego musical productions, The La Jolla Playhouse, directed multiple competitive dance teams and continued to perform locally. You can even catch her in several movies and television shows. During this time, she diligently pursued her desire to become a certified personal trainer and registered Yoga instructor (Lesa fell in love with Yoga at the age of 18 and has been practicing ever since). While completing her certifications, Lesa also created her first company, LMG Dance and Fitness (a mobile training company). In 2009, she opened MIX, the studio location for THE MIX. She received her CPT certification in 2007 and completed her 200 HR Yoga teacher training certification under the tutelage of Kathy Lee Kappmeier in 2008. Lesa received her Master's degree in Physical Education from Azusa Pacific University where her thesis was based on "College Students' Perceptions of Yoga Participation and Its Influence on Academic Success and Concentration". Lesa deeply believes everyone can benefit from Yoga practice.
