Problems can be solved. Goals can be achieved. For over 20 years I've been teaching people the social, emotional, and mental attitudes and skills most highly associated with success in life, work, and relationships.

Katharine Leslie, PhD.

I teach the principles and practices of traditional yoga incorporating knowledge of body systems, developmental patterns, and mindfulness. This yoga practice will enhance your self-understanding, and your life.



Meet Katharine

I have a PhD in developmental psychology from NCSU, and certifications in adult learning, mediation, resiliency, neuroscience, sport and academic performance, and leadership. I spent the first 2/3 of my career educating child welfare professionals and parents on childhood trauma. I wrote dozens of curricula for local and national organizations. And I wrote a couple of books on the developmental process of attachment, and parenting an attachment disordered child. You can purchase copies of "When a Stranger Calls You Mom" and "Coming to Grips With Attachment" on Amazon. I'm currently writing several children's books,and will post them for sale when they're ready.

When I later became a performance coach and trainer, I worked with military forces and personnel, corporate and non-profit workforces, and executives. Now I primarily coach individuals seeking self-improvement. I am gratified when the people I coach realize their potential, laugh more, stress less, show greater self-control in their relationships and in the workplace, and are happier with their lives and with those they love. To request coaching or training contact me here. 


I have been lovingly married for 34 years, and we raised 4 children. I'm addicted to pickleball and home remodeling. I am known for my smile, joyous personality, and ability to bring clarity to any situation.
