I am currently and have been with Leslie for about 2 years now and in that time, and have enjoyed every moment of her class. I try to take yoga at various studios around Houston as well as different places around the world and I am still in wonder every time I have the opportunity to attend her her class. In my experience with yoga teachers, there are those that are strong- inversions, and those that are flexible, but very few can combine the two aspects of yoga as Leslie. She can demonstrate and assist on the various poses in the different practices from ashtanga to vinyasa with poise and grace as very few instructors can accomplish. Furthermore and perhaps more important, she has this unique ability connect with you on a personal level as if you have been best friends for years. With this said, I am a real person, with no personal ties to Leslie beyond choosing to attend her class and a Facebook "friend". I write this to encourage you to honor yourself in your practice and include her in your yoga journey.
