Lesley has been a New Yorker since 2002, but didn’t discover Bikram Yoga until 2007, when a friend suggested she give it a try. Knowing that she came from a theater/dance background, he thought it might be “right up her alley.” Reluctantly she came, and has been hooked ever since. The rest, as they say, is history. She started managing for the company in 2010, and finally made it to Teacher Training in the Fall of 2013. Needless to say, she is thrilled to be part of the bodē nyc family!
If you ever want a private lesson, Lesley is happy to be your instructor. She loves working with new, as well as experienced yogis to make them more comfortable with the practice and answering any questions they may have.
As a former dancer and performer, Lesley has a great awareness of the body and also the ability to give modifications when it comes to injuries and such. She loves getting to know the yogis who come to her class regularly and watch them as they grow and learn.
This yoga has changed her life for the better, and she wants to help others experience the same.
I am just so thankful for this practice. I come from a dance/theatre background and I didn’t know if I would ever find something that I was as passionate about, until I found this. It really is amazing.
