INTERVIEW WITH Leah Santa Cruz ON how to meditate like a boss

Hey guys,

As part of our 21-Day Daily Meditation Challenge, we wanted to interview meditation teachers and practitioners to get their perspective on this awesome habit you could build.

In today’s episode, I chat with meditation teacher Leah Santa Cruz.

Leah currently lives and teaches meditation in Bali, where she ended up going after deciding to quit her corporate job in L.A.

And even though she had what would be considered a successful career in Silicon Valley, working for companies like Microsoft or Thrive Market, the constant stress and anxiety pushed her to burnout and unplug from that lifestyle and find a true passion for life through practicing and teaching meditation.

At the moment, Leah helps people find a personalized meditation practice and offers life coaching as well as leads transformational yoga and meditation retreats – her next one is for entrepreneurs and aspiring leaders on May 26 – June 1st, 2018, in Bali. It’s called Bali Like A Boss and is co-led with yoga teacher and business coach Shayna Hiller.
