I could start with a dry and classic introduction by saying that I’m a dancer and choreographer who has been teaching chair dancing since 2012, impressing you with titles like ‘Certified Pilates Instructor’ or ‘Flexibility Coach™ teacher’.
But I feel it’s more important, to tell you why I do what I do: I want to create a supportive environment for women all around the world. An environment where every woman can express herself through dance, connect with her body, and showcase her unique beauty, femininity, and sensuality. And to learn through dance what I have learned myself.
Dance has been, and still is, my teacher. It teaches me how to pick myself up when I fall. It teaches me perseverance and patience. It’s shown me the path to self-acceptance and self-love, for both me and my body. It fills me with fire and helps release pent-up energy and suppressed emotions. It’s my springboard for personal growth, encouraging me to keep moving forward. Dance has taught me that there’s always room for improvement, which keeps me both humble and bold.
Everything I’ve learned through dance, I want to share with you, my dear. Because I believe that dance can do as much for you as it has done for me. I invite you to join a circle of supportive women, to embrace the change you can make for yourself and, in turn, for the world. To help raise the world’s vibration with your happiness and hold space for others to shine and find their way.
I’m here to support you with all my experience and knowledge. To gently push you when needed and catch you before you fall. Join me in the art of movement!
Fun Facts About Me
I was always dancing… My kindergarten teacher trusted me to choreograph the final dance we had for our parents before we left for school. I was the leading dancer and my parents decided it was time to enroll me in a dance school.
The first dance that I learned in dance school was Lambada.
At the age of 9, me and my partner won 1st place in a national ballroom dancing competition.
I once had a hen, that I called Mickey and I was driving him around in a wheelbarrow…
I ran away in the middle of an entrance exam for the college of architecture because I didn’t feel confident enough (Needless to say, I wasn’t accepted).
I love animals, and I cry if I see one suffering. I was never allowed to have pets in the house, so I got myself a cat the moment I moved on my own (I found her in the parking lot in front of the apartment building I used to live in and it was love at first sight). Cats are crazy, loving, selfish, self-centered, careless and beautiful.
I have been a vegetarian for over 20 years (but I hate brussels sprouts).
I had to stop dancing at the age of 10 due to a knee operation. That was also the end of my ballroom career.
I lived and worked abroad for some time and people kept asking me if my name is spelled the same way as Princess Leia from Star Wars. No, it is spelled differently – Leja – but J is almost nowhere pronounced the same way as in Slovenian. So, I swapped the J with I to make it easier to pronounce it correctly and to remember it more easily. So, Leia P., just like the princess 😉
