About the event

We are excited to announce that Lea Marie Perfetti, Astrologer & Yoga Teacher & Women’s Health Facilitator, will be returning to Hair•Color•Art for Ashtanga Yoga and a Women's Circle this fall. The yoga classes are open to EVERYONE, and the women's gathering is open to all who identify as a woman.

Lea will offer Ashtanga yoga classes throughout the weekend and will lead a Women’s Circle, on Saturday, October 26 where she will discuss honestly women and spirituality, especially in the yoga community.

Shortly after finishing her degrees, and a research position on biodiversity in Utah, at Deseret Ranch, being inspired by a friend, she decided to travel to Thailand and India to continue her yogic and spiritual studies in 2003.

In 2021, Lea began guiding and holding women’s circles as part of her Yoga program, to support women in their many life phases, from maiden, to mother, to crone. She has studied women’s health since she was in her early 20’s.
