Leanna Immel, RYT-200

Leanna rediscovered her love of yoga in 2011 in an aerial yoga class, joining the fluidity of dance with the disciplined art of yoga. After a couple of years “in the air,” Leanna transitioned onto the mat where she developed both flowing and stillness practices.

As an elementary school teacher, Leanna furthered her own yoga education in order to bring these teachings alive for her students. By attending the YogaKids Foundations Training, she has been able to provide a playful and nurturing practice to children in classroom, camp, and studio settings. Her work with adults is just as profound.

Leanna draws inspiration from local and international yoga teachers such as Valerie Moselle, Matthew Remski, Jenni Rawlings, Lisa Garrido, Diane Bruni, Bridget Puchalsky, and others. Her teaching and her classes aim to be thoughtful, intentional, and inclusive. She sees yoga through a modern lens based on inquiry and dialogue, discovering the power of uniting movement with breath, and cultivating a mindful practice both on and off the mat.

Kenny Woods

Kenny is 1440’s executive chef and the creative mastermind behind Kitchen Table. Knife wielding, lemon squeezing, chiffonading, braising, blanching, seeping, searing, plating, and staying present are all within his (delicious) wheelhouse.

A native of Tuscon, Arizona, Kenny is big on jazz, meditation, and simple living. His favorite three-word phrase: mise en place—French for “everything in its place.” According to Kenny, “It’s just kind of a way to live your life—knowing what’s going on, staying in the moment. When you translate that to a kitchen, it’s success.”

Kenny offers cooking demonstrations in 1440’s Teaching Kitchen, allowing guests to delve into 1440’s inspired culinary creations, as well as cook and share a healthy, mouthwatering meal in collaboration with others.
