Leslie Salmon Jones


Leslie Salmon Jones is a professional dancer, certified holistic personal trainer, wellness coach, yoga instructor, seasoned public speaker, and creator of Afro Flow Yoga™. She began studying ballet and Afro-Caribbean dance at age seven. It was through her intensive dance training at the esteemed Alvin Ailey American Dance Center that Leslie was first introduced to yoga. She is deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to study and train with world-renowned masters of dance, yoga, and spirituality. The concept of fusing the dances of the African diaspora and yoga was Leslie’s inspiration, born from traveling extensively throughout Africa and the Caribbean. She has produced two wellness DVDs, Core Strength: Back to Basics and Core Power: Radiate the Energy Within.
