You can spend a lot of time (as I did) thinking how bad your back is or you could spend a little time a few times a week using the toolkit for healthy backs that this course teaches under the expert guidance of Leigh. But this is not just a twelve week module but a 'pick 'n mix' yoga based exercise programme which you use for a life time and will gradually improve the overall quality of your life and health. It will take time and personal effort but as you would expect of yoga the benefits go beyond 'the lower back.' If, like me, you have not done yoga before this course is an excellent start, combining basic yoga principles and gentle back strengthening exercise sequences both of which can be developed and advanced if desired. The group was small and friendly. The venue clean, bright, airy and warm with plenty of on or off site parking. Leigh runs the course with professionalism and quiet efficiency, she has a wealth of yoga experience and has a passion and enthusiasm which shines through week after week. Commit to your back, commit to your general wellbeing. Don't delay, sign up today!
Thank you so much for this review Michele.
I first met Leigh, when she covered a lesson for my then Yoga teacher, from that first class ,I knew that she was the teacher I wanted to learn from.From the class structure, atmosphere and welcoming start ,Leighs knowledge and the way she taught had me loving every minute of the class. I then managed to join Leighs regular weekly class, over a year ago now.For every posture, the modifications to accommodate any injuries or ongoing conditions make it easy to practise. I have had an ongoing heart condition, and Leighs obvious attention to detail, along with the discrete manner, as far as contraindications are concerned made me feel completely at ease .From the Asanas to meditation, yoga Nidra and relaxation, the whole class is a great experience, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Leighs classes to anyone interested in, starting or continuing their yoga path .
I have been attending Leigh's hatha yoga classes on a Thursday evening now for nearly 2 years - in that time I have found my flexibility greatly improved which is basically why I wanted to start in the first place but have also found other benefits in relaxation and breathing techniques - apart from being a woman of many talents and one of the sweetest people I know Leigh has a wealth of experience in teaching yoga and will make newcomers feel very welcome and always gives different level options when performing asanas - I can't imagine ever wanting to give up this class now - thanks Leigh x
Staying calm and focused is something we all struggle with to some extent in today’s world. Leigh's teaching has helped me to be more mindful and the yoga practice has improved my health and wellbeing. The classes are well structured with options always given to suit any ability, and Leigh has a lovely clear way of explaining each pose. I can't wait for Thursday class to come around each week !
I am just completing this course with Leigh and have found it exceptionally beneficial. I have learnt to try to maintain good posture in my daily life and I find that I have many days free from back pain altogether. It is necessary to do the exercises at home as well as at the classes but it is worth the time and effort.Before I started the course I found it difficult to bend down to pick things up but am much improved now. I shall continue with the yoga at home in future. By the way, it is just as good for men as for women!
I have attended Leigh's yoga classes for several years and have found them both mindful and calming. Her method of teaching is suitable for any age group as she offers several alternative positions. Leigh combines the fun side of yoga with the spiritual and now I feel a new woman!
Give it a go whatever your age!
If you are looking for a class that will improve your health and wellbeing on all levels then book a course with Leigh. You get so much more than a regular yoga class. Leigh shares her vast knowledge of yoga and ayurveda and gives plenty of useful tips and advice on how to best live your life. I find regular practice not only keeps me free from aches and pains but also healthier, happier and more contented generally. Not to be missed!
Thank you so much for the positive feedback!
Yoga was always something I would like to do but I never found the time. An unfortunate experience and change in circumstances offered a window of opportunity, which I filled with this class. The best thing I ever did!! Leigh's class is everything I ever wanted and more, practicing with her and what is now my Yoga community has brought a sense of calm, control and confidence to my self, all of which had been lost. I have been able to bring 'Yoga Moments' into my everyday life along with Yoga Nidra and look forward to a life of practice.
Thank you for your kind feedback. I'm so pleased you gave yoga a try! - Leigh
Leigh's Birthlight yoga class is amazing! Leigh gave me such confidence and knowledge which enabled me to make informed decisions about the birth I wanted. The breathing techniques and light stretches practiced within the class were also fantastic - and easily done at home too. Leigh creates a friendly, calm atmosphere and is a great place to meet other soon-to-be mums. I cannot recommend Leigh and her classes enough! 🙂
Thank you. I'm so glad you found the Birthlight teachings helped you feel more prepared for birth! - Leigh
