Testimonials

“As a 30 year old professional man the prospect of yoga was daunting. I can say without hesitation that Lesley made me feel at ease and that, as a desk-bound beginner, not only has her class immeasurably improved my life but I’ve never been made to feel anything but welcome. After a motorcycle crash and a sedentary job I thought I’d never regain my boyhood joy of movement and yet here I am. Forget your prejudices of hippy-dippy new age fads and come to Lesley’s class for her skilled instruction in how to fix the body you lost to the pub!” Sam Pointer

“Yoga allows me to bring my mind and body back into balance. Lesley begins class by drawing attention inwards which allows each student to set a positive intention. Through Lesley’s wisdom of yoga, she encourages mindfulness as she slowly awakens the body through a flow of yoga postures. Her classes are both subtle and rigorous.” Elaine Knight

“Previously any exercise I did involved running or aerobic exercise, but I found as I got older that my ankles were becoming uncomfortable. I thought I would try yoga and I have found Lesley’s class very beneficial both mentally and physically. I have become much more aware of my own posture. The class is very fun, and is tailored to suit individual needs and, to my surprise, provides a really good workout. I leave the class feeling revitalised from top to toe – well nearly!”

“Lesley’s warm and knowledgeable approach is evident from the moment you walk through the door. Having recently got back into Yoga to help with a back injury, Lesley makes sure that all ailments and issues are taken into account, adapts movements when required but pushes you in the right way to ensure you get the most out of the classes. Classes have a relaxed and fun feel to them and have the right mix of postures, sequences and relaxation. I thoroughly recommend Lesley’s yoga classes to anyone thinking about joining, you won’t be disappointed.”
