Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs

I joined Leigh for her YHLB course in September '18 and found it so good I did it it again in the Spring term.

Leigh is lovely. She's very friendly and she always takes care that you only do what you're able to do. I particularly liked the way that she told us not to beat ourselves up about practice we didn't do, but to celebrate what we had done!

The YHLB course has its roots in university research, so it's well validated. I found that although it hasn't completely cured my back problem, it has significantly reduced its severity and has given me the tools to keep it under control.

I strongly recommend the YHLB course and Leigh as a yoga guru!

Thank you so much Richard, for taking the time to leave this lovely review!

Leigh is UNIQUE, EFFECTIVE and INSPIRATIONAL. I have been attending the Monday morning, gentle hatha yoga classes now for several years. Leigh demonstrates excellent organisational skills as the hall is previously set up for the session to begin promptly and to also finish on time. I like the way she hands out information sheets to accompany the lesson - explaining the physical and the philosophical attributes of yoga. Leigh has a broad and comprehensive knowledge of yoga and the atmosphere is calm with relaxing music. She advocates using props, such as yoga blocks, rolled up blankets, belts and chairs to aid effectiveness to ensure absolute comfort. Leigh very cleverly individualises certain poses for the individual. Her approach is holistic. Personally, I love the deep breathing and yoga nidra sessions which allow me to enter a meditative state which align my chakras and energy meridians. I always leave the room feeling energized, yet at peace , in both MIND, BODY and SPIRIT.

What a lovely review Daisy! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this kind feedback.

I started Leighs class a year ago as a complete novice to yoga. Leigh has been an amazing teacher, her breadth of knowledge about all things yoga means you learn not only about the poses but the history of the poses too. The combination of the class on the poses, breathing, relaxation is just what you need to restore your balance! I would throughly recommend anyone new coming to Leigh's class.

Thank you so much for this lovely feedback Karen!

At the time of joining Leigh's yoga class a number of years ago I was seeing a Chiropractor every four weeks for between 20 and 30 minutes. After a while the time between appointments would increase from 4 to 6 to 8 weeks and the treatments would drop down to 10 minutes which I would put down to my yoga practice.

Thank you Paul. I'm so glad the yoga has helped you decrease the need for treatment.

Hatha yoga

I’ve been attending Leigh’s hatha yoga classes for a number of years. She is quite simply the best yoga teacher I have ever had. Leigh is very knowledgeable and not only takes us through yoga poses but also talks to us about other associated practices – breathing, ayurveda, mindfulness and has recently taught us how to use foam rollers to help our stretching exercises. In class Leigh is able to talk us through poses from the basic to advanced positions so that every pose is accessible to every person – no matter their ability. I recently had a shoulder injury and Leigh was very helpful in advising which poses could help and those to avoid. I have a fear of flying, particularly taking off and landing, and I use one of the breathing exercises Leigh taught us to help to keep me calm – it works so well my husband now tells me to ‘do your yoga breathing’ when I get on a plane! Classes are a joy to attend and the guided relaxation at the end is blissful! I would recommend Leigh’s classes to anyone and everyone.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this thoughtful review Teresa!

Must try !! Pregnancy Yoga

I have visited Leigh's Birth Light Yoga classes with my first pregnancy and now back in my second. I just could not think of not being here this time too.
Leigh is great with her art, a very warm and welcoming person who enjoys what she does. Leigh made me realise what a women’s body can do during pregnancy and gave the confidence that we can have the birth we like to have. Giving birth is unpredictable and doesn’t always go to plan, but believing in having a positive experience can help you have one.
Coming to Leigh's classes is the best thing I have done to myself during my pregnancies. I always assumed that I would need all the medical intervention available to cope with the ordeal of giving birth. I joined Leigh's classes as I thought they are structured and safe for me and the baby. However, I found to my surprise that it was much more. I have learned many things that have helped to empower me about birth, including movement, focused breathing and relaxation. Leigh is an amazing teacher who demonstrates a mixture of physical exercises and breathing techniques so you come away feeling your muscles have become really flexible and relaxed. Learnt great tips and techniques on comfortable positions for labour, lots of stuff about active birth etc.., Knowing what to expect, and what I can do to help the process, helped me calm any anxieties that I had. Leigh’s classes are adapted to each one so we can get what we need to focus on.
I could not recommend Leigh and her classes enough! Must try!!! Thanks Leigh.

What a touching review Sneha. You made my day with this wonderful feedback!

I've been attending Leigh's gentle yoga class on a Monday for 18 months now. I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME) two years ago and Leigh helped me to focus on what I could do rather than what I couldn't, and has helped to to build my confidence physically and mentally over this time. I love Leigh's positive nature and how she teaches all aspects of yoga - breathing, mantras, asanas, yoga nidras and the philosophy behind it - in a fun and enlightening way. Her words of wisdom have stayed with me, even in the difficult days when I can't attend class. Leigh's classes have helped me to have a more positive outlook on my life and is helping on my road to recovery. Couldn't recommend them enough!

Thank you so much for this touching review Michelle. I'm so glad you have discovered the many benefits of yoga!

tuesday hatha class

I've been going to Leigh's yoga class for a few years now, and can't imagine it not being part of my week. It helps in so many ways, for flexibility, certainly, but also for deep relaxation, de-stressing and feeling part of a small, friendly yoga community. It's always a mix - familiar postures alongside something new. There's never any pressure, and you feel relaxed and secure because Leigh really knows her stuff!

Thank you so much Nik for this review! It's greatly appreciated.

Pregnancy yoga

I have attended pregnancy yoga for most of my second pregnancy and I can highly recommend it! Every single class gave me information that I needed!
Leigh is very easy to talk to and you can definitely tell that she puts all her heart in giving the guidance and information to future mothers, making sure that when the time comes you will get the birth that you wanted!
Thank you Leigh for everything and can't wait to see you when my little lady arrives!

Thank you so much Dom for your kind words! I really appreciate you taking the time to leave this review.

Leigh is the best Yoga teacher ever

I have know Leigh personally as a friend first for over 14 years and a yoga teacher for many, many years now. I look forward to my weekly yoga session and couldn't live my life without it. Not only has it helped me with my flexibility the deep breathing has helped with my singing as I am in a choir and the yoga has definitely helped with my running, and more recently taking part in an ultra challenge, walking 62 miles of the Cotswold Way non stop. I truly believe that without Leigh's yoga sessions I wouldn't have recovered as quickly as I had. I was back doing yoga the day straight after my challenge. Leigh is a true inspiration and a wonderful person who truly cares about each and every one of us. Here's to many more years of yoga with Leigh.

Kerry what a touching review - thank you so much for taking the time to leave this feedback!
