“I am a dreamer and a doer. I am constantly challenging myself to believe that anything is possible with God, that He is anxious to give us the desires of our hearts. I want to live a life that screams from the mountaintops a story of the goodness of God.”(bio photos by Erica Joy Photography)

Leslie practices and teaches yoga in the beautiful Texas hill country. Her certifications are RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Trainer 200 hours) and Holy Yoga (Christian based yoga 95 hours). She has been practicing for 20+ years as an athlete in recovery, for cross training purposes and as an addition to her lifestyle and worship. Her style is power flow (each breath is paired with a move or pose) and yoga for athletes. She also has experience teaching restorative classes & private instruction. She brings a calm and bright heart as well as a sense of humor to the mat. Her family of 2 beautiful little cherubs (CC, age 3 & Peggy Ann, age 1) and husband, Richard live in the gorgeous hill country Hunt, Texas. Leslie worked in a corporate environment for 20 years on the east coast and took a leap of faith by quitting her job in a poor economy to move back to her roots and be with family. Since that leap and alignment of priorities, her cup has runneth over with family, friendship and love.
