Afro Flow Yoga™ founder Leslie Salmon Jones enjoys a career working with clients, students, diverse populations, and community organizations to help develop mastery over their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-beings.
Since dancing at the age of seven, Leslie has been living her dreams as a professional dancer, certified holistic personal trainer, yoga instructor, certified wellness coach, and public speaker.
She completed her BA in interdisciplinary studies in health sciences and dance at SUNY, NYC, and has had the opportunity to study and train with world-renowned masters of dance, yoga and spirituality. It was through her intensive dance training at the Alvin Ailey School in New York that Leslie was first introduced to yoga, and nearly twenty years later she remains dedicated to her yoga practice.
It was the connection with African spirituality, yogic principals, the intrinsic expression of movement through nature’s elements, and a transformational journey throughout Africa and the Caribbean that inspired Leslie to create Afro Flow Yoga in 2008. Along with her husband Jeff Jones, a multi-instrumentalist, recording artist, musical director and cofounder of Afro Flow Yoga, they currently offer classes and workshops around the world.
Afro Flow Yoga has been featured in Yoga Journal, Black Enterprise, and Exhale and on Better Living with Liz Walker and NBC and ABC news. Leslie and Jeff coproduced two wellness DVDs: Core Strength: Back to Basics and Core Power: Radiate the Energy Within.
