PHYSICAL THERAPIST

CERTIFIED NEURAC PRACTITIONER

Leffel brings a wealth of personal experience and depth of understanding to her work in physical therapy at Core Conditioning. Originally from the San Francisco bay area, she earned a BA in Music from Mills College. Leffel continued her formal education studying philosophy at Cal State East Bay and UC Berkeley. During this time she studied ballet with Sally Streets at Berkeley Ballet Theatre and taught ballet to adults. Dance injuries and a serious accident led her to the Pilates method at the St. Francis Center for Dance Medicine. After a move to Los Angeles she studied Pilates with Jillian Hessel, for whom she subsequently worked. After teaching Pilates for a number of years, a desire to deepen her understanding of the human body led Leffel to Cal State Northridge School of Physical Therapy where she earned her MPT in 2013. In addition to Pilates, Leffel is certified in Neurac 1 and 2. She is an avid reader and food lover, spending much of her free time exploring the culinary offerings of her neighborhood.
