Meet Leah Ward, our North Carolina ambassador!
What does yoga mean to you?
“Yoga is so much more than a series of poses. Yoga taught me how to love myself and bring joy to others in the world. Yoga makes me feel calm, confident, beautiful, strong, graceful (sometimes) and overall a happier, better person. It brings joy to my life and I’m grateful to be able to share it with others.”
What makes you happy?
“Helping and seeing someone reach a goal they maybe never thought they had or were capable of is one of the most rewarding aspects I’ve found in life. My tribe and community, which have become my family keeps me motivated and moving on even my toughest days and for that I am forever grateful and happy.
On a best day, I’ll have yoga with inversions, nature, friends, and my furry loves (corgis)…..and probably a glass of good wine. My hope is that everyone is able to find their own happy and even if it’s a smile to a stranger, somehow find their way to spread that out into the world.”
What is your favorite yoga to practice?
“Although I enjoy all aspects of the practice, my heart belongs to Buti Yoga. The transformation and change in myself and others is breathtaking. Buti is a Marathi Indian term for “the cure to something that’s been hidden away or kept secret”. Buti focuses heavily on chakras and has helped show me what I’m truly capable of.”
What do you love about Moonchild Yoga Wear?
“Moonchild Yoga Wear is not only beautiful, empowering and feminine, but it also is one of the most comfortable lines I’ve ever tried. I was instantly sold after my first pair. Their quality, attention to detail and breathability is hands down, the best.”
