Leslie Salmon Jones is a professional dancer, certified holistic personal trainer, wellness coach, yoga instructor, seasoned public speaker, and creator of Afro Flow Yoga™. It was through her intensive dance training at the esteemed Alvin Ailey American Dance Center that Leslie was first introduced to yoga, and nearly 20 years later, she remains dedicated to her yoga practice. She is deeply grateful for the guidance of all of her teachers at Alvin Ailey, White Cloud Yoga, Sivananda, Jivamukti and Universal Force Yoga, and for the spiritual guidance of Maude Evans, Gurunam, Mailidoma Some and Mandaza Kandemwa. A Toronto native of Jamaican descent, Leslie has called NYC and Boston home for over 20 years, and enjoyed teaching, training, speaking and performing nationally and abroad. The concept of fusing dance and yoga was Leslie’s inspiration born from traveling extensively throughout Africa and the Caribbean. It was the connection with African spirituality, ancient yogic principals and the intrinsic expression of movement through nature’s elements that inspired Leslie to create Afro Flow Yoga™. She has also produced two wellness DVDs: Core Strength: Back to Basics and Core Power: Radiate the Energy Within. Currently, Leslie is an Ambassador for lululemon and teaches Afro Flow Yoga™, Core Strength, and Core Power throughout the US and abroad. www.afroflowyoga.com | www.lesliesalmonjones.com
