About MBodied Wellness

Ana Leger is a bodyworker and a Lafayette native.  She’s been doing Massage & Bodywork since 2008, practicing Yoga since 1999, and teaching Yoga since 2017.  She often travels to deepen her education and brings new insights and a fresh perspective back home to her work in Acadiana.


Ana graduated from The Academy of the Sacred Heart in 2000 and then attended Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA. She also attended LSU and then graduated from ULL with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2007.  Two weeks after graduation, she moved to Spring, TX to embark on her training as a massage therapist.  She finished at the top of her class from the Aveda Institute in 2008 and made her way back to Acadiana.

Continuing Education courses:

In 2008, she began her work as a massage therapist at Belle Tresse, an Aveda salon and spa in Scott, LA.  While there, she was encouraged by clients to take her anatomy and physiology knowledge and skills into working alongside chiropractors.  For the next seven years, she kept a private practice office while also working alongside several different local chiropractors (including but not limited to: Scott Oaks; Dr. Michelle Carr; Dr. Tom Lightfoot; and several years with Dr. John Daigle at Daigle Chiropractic Center.


In 2015, she went into private practice full time. At this time, she had more space to deepen her education and expand her practice, bringing more of the energy medicine into her work and beginning her work in CranioSacral Therapy.

In 2017, she began teaching yoga and leading meditation at Basin Arts downtown, where she still teaches yoga.

Through a partnership with Basin Arts and a grant awarded to Myrtle Place Elementary, Ana was able to bring her love of yoga and mindfulness into Lafayette Parish schools.  She co-created a tailored Mindfulness & Movement curriculum for the students of Myrtle Place Elementary (pre-K through 5th grade).

This led to opportunities to teach both students and teachers in a number of settings from 2018 to the present: kindergarteners for Math & Science Day at Green T Lindon; guest speaker for teacher in-service at Milton Elementary (thanks to a Mindfulness grant); guest speaker for teacher in-service at Myrtle Place Elementary; guest speaker for teacher in-service at Evangeline Elementary School; and yoga training for the PE Coaches of Evangeline Elementary School (thanks to another grant).

In 2018, she also began volunteering to teach yoga weekly to the young men at AMIKids in Branch, LA.  She taught there until the spring of 2020 when the pandemic prevented future classes from taking place.

In December of 2020, Ana began teaching yoga at Red Lerille’s and continues to teach there now (primarily a weekly Stretch class, and sometimes substitute teaching: flow yoga, restorative yoga, and yoga basics).

Ana is also a rotating instructor for weekly yoga classes held at The Grapple House.
