About our style & origins

COMMUNITY  //  CURIOSITY // GENUINE NATURE // A REMINDER THAT YOU MATTER

Yoga Dear is a welcoming, encouraging approach to yoga, offering grounded guidance. We pride ourselves on creating classes that are down-to-earth with a healthy dose of laughter and encourage  openness, curiosity, and wholeness.

Our greatest hope? That everyone who comes through our doors (literally and figuratively) experiences a sense of feeling seen, heard, and like they truly matter—because they do.  We’re here for anyone who needs regular reminder that “You are enough.”

We offer a healthy dose of yogic philosophy and thought with each and every class.
— Leanne Matullo, Founder & Director

We offer all levels of yoga classes, teacher trainings, and pre and postnatal yoga. Our classes are like a cool drink of water for the soul, no matter your experience level. If you aren’t sure what yoga is, want to establish a regular practice, or seek to deepen your practice by learning to teach others, we have a space for you. Each class provides an opportunity for students to foster community, extending the benefits of yoga beyond the studio walls.

We believe practicing yoga is a way of practicing life.  We know that each time we step onto the mat, whether it’s the first time or the thousandth, we’re learning about how to both push our limits and respect our boundaries. We’re balancing patience and determination and developing connection with others while making space for stillness.

We invite you to explore possibilities that you didn’t know were available. As a result, you might discover that you have a calmer mind and a calmer life. You might find that courage on the mat leads to courage off the mat. You just might find yourself not judging, analyzing, or comparing. We hope you find yourself more connected to the person you’ve always been.

Leanne Matullo, Founder & Director

Leanne Matullo, founder of Yoga Dear, is a Registered Yoga Teacher, Registered Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher, and Yoga Educator. She believes surpassingly in the power of yoga to transform the way we live in our bodies, and ultimately our lives.

She’s a lifelong dancer and yogi, combining an array of multiple disciplines and styles to bring to her clients. She draws on her dance background to teach classes that are as elegant as they are encouraging.

She intimately knows the benefits that yoga can bring, as she learned during her fertility struggles. It taught her that women need a place of safety and welcoming during the childbearing years, no matter their parental status, so she created that in Yoga Dear. Here, women have a place to reconnect with their bodies and nourish their souls.

Leanne is, at her core, a person of warmth and inclusion. She loves to know her students by name and her nurturing spirit fosters a sense of vibrancy and community within each class and interaction.
