Afro Flow Yoga® co-founder, Leslie Salmon Jones enjoys a career working with clients, students, diverse populations, youth, and community organizations to help develop mastery over their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-beings. 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 Master 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-five years later, she remains dedicated to her yoga practice and teaching. 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.
Afro Flow Yoga® co-founder Jeff Jones is a multi-instrumentalist, recording artist, musical director, composer, and cocreator with his wife, Leslie Salmon Jones. Jeff creates an intuitive dynamic flow through a stream of consciousness and the mastery of African-inspired rhythms, instruments, and vocals, synergizing the class collective. His use of the Djembe, which he brought back from Ghana, congas, bongos, Sudanese Acholi lyre, Indian bells, tambourine, and an eclectic array of tonal instruments makes for a healing musical journey.
