Petra Ledkovsky van Aarem, E-RYT 500, spent her formative years on the beaches of Wellfleet in the summer and on the Upper West Side of Manhattan during the school year. In 2002, she discovered the powerfully therapeutic benefits of yoga and thus began her path of study. She founded Orleans Yoga in 2013 to curate a space on her beloved Outer Cape Cod for all to study and benefit from the potent practice of yoga.
Teaching yoga since 2006, Petra studies with Tias and Surya Little of Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and recently completed an additional 300 hour advanced certification with them. She also holds certfications in Reformer Pilates I and II, and studies with back care yoga specialist, Alison West, with whom she completed her Ropes & Slings yoga certification in 2018.
On most days Petra can be found working privately with clients in her yoga therapy room which features Reformer Pilates equipment and a yoga ropes wall. She also teaches public classes and workshops at her studio and online, combining her blend of innovation and tradition with a therapeutic approach to the practice of yoga.
