Dancing  for  the  
of  the  Art


"Since taking Leslie's Yoga's class just 2-3 times a week for the past 8 months, I have had a noticable difference in overall muscle definition, improved posture and my chiropractor says that I am moving great! Leslie does a fantastic job at focused breath, balance and posture along with challenging new poses. Never do I feel out of place or discouraged at what level of achievement I accomplish for the class as Leslie is great at cheering me on. Last but not least and most importantly, my sense of calm and wellbeing after completing a class keeps me coming back! Thanks Leslie!"
