Lesley’s life changed in 2016 when she completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at Yoga By The Sea. She began by teaching karma classes at the studio, then coordinating the program to allow teachers-in-training the opportunity to practice their new craft. Through this service (Seva), she found her heart opening and her mind quietening, deepening her own practice.
In 2019 she continued her journey through the completion of her 300 hour Advanced Teacher Training with Hasu, and expanding her teaching to Wake Up Yoga and then Restorative Yoga at Yoga By The Sea, as well as other classes in her community.
My life has had such a profound shift that I wish everyone can feel the benefits of yoga.
I love how yoga can bring in a sense of community during a class. Where strangers can become friends and neighbors become family.
In my classes I honor my students by meeting them where they are. My students are held with love, respect and compassion.
I never know what I will bring to the mat in any given class. I like to be just as surprised as my students as to where the class goes. I like to think I teach from the heart connecting to my students through meditation, mindful movement, or even dancing.
Life can be so serious I like to remind my students to laugh and have fun.
I’m looking forward to bringing what I learn into my classes. I’m also attempting to learn how to play the ukulele. For me it’s a challenge as I don’t have a musical bone in my body. And maybe just maybe I will bring that into my classes as well.
Light and Love,
