Leisa's classes are inclusive and open to all levels, offering a variety of entry points in the practice for beginners or those more experienced. Blending breathing, meditation (guided being a favourite) as well as intentional movements to provide a safe space where you can move and rest. Weaving in philosophy and looking for opportunities to align the practice to the seasons as well as to our energy centres (chakras).
Deeply curious and drawn to yoga from a young age, Leisa dabbled in many styles of yoga over the years, she found herself not fully committed to a certain practice but flowing in and out of various styles of yoga meditation classes. These practices have become an integral anchor and part of Leisas life providing her with the tools to weather any storm that life throws at her.
Becoming a Yoga Teacher in the Sarasvati Yoga Style (a traditional raja yoga) has allowed Leisa to share these teachings both in class as well as integrating them into her role as a HR and Transformational Leader, driving cultural change in large organisations.
Yoga has supported Leisa throughout three pregnancies and provided her with a space where she could practice self care on a number of levels; physical, emotional and spiritual. After the birth of her third child, Leisa made a conscious decision to dedicate herself to a regular vinyasa practice; practising the art of being a student, studying philosophy of yoga, meditating daily, journaling and trying (yes trying) to live a yogic lifestyle whilst working full time with three young children.
