Leo Cheung

Kushala Yoga

Hi, I’m Leo and I teach yoga. A few years ago, I traveled by bike to Mexico and backpacked my way down to Peru. There, I discovered yoga through a dear friend and this is how this magical journey began. Inspired by a local teacher in Port Moody, I went to India to do my first teacher training at Rishikesh Yog Peeth(yoga school).
