An Inspiring and Motivating

Having taken Barb's RYT 200 teacher training I came to the conclusion that Barb is not only a yoga teacher to be experienced, but a yoga leader with the capacity to effect a turnaround in how health matters are addressed through the practice of yoga. Barb's classes and teaching changed my life permanently on so many levels. I am eternally grateful and encourage students, new to advanced, to have the benefit of all of Barb's passion and experience in her classes and teacher training.

Barb Leese an amazing teacher.

Barb is an amazing yoga teacher and an inspiration to a great many yoga practitioners including myself. There are many great yoga instructors out there, but very few true yoga teachers like Barb. She's highly knowledgeable, skilled and one of the most humble and down to earth persons I've had the privilege of knowing. Its a true honour to have been trained and taught by Barb.

Other notable qualities of a true teacher are the fact that she continues to further her education by taking several courses every year. Barb has excellent communication skills and very professional. Her classes are full of energy. I have always been amazed by the interest she shows to acquire more knowledge and leverage it in her classes. I recommend Barb highly to anyone interested in attending teacher training or attending her classes.

Barb is a wonderful teacher! I knew nothing about yoga when I started with her and I learned so much! I'm very clumsy and she was very patient with me!

Wonderful instrustor

Over the years, Barb is one of the best instructors I have had. Her classes are very relaxed, yet we can challenge ourselves based on comfort level. She is very knowledgeable in terms of technique, body dynamic and spiritualism. Highly recommended!

BARB is the BEST

Barb is the best yoga teacher I have ever encountered. If only I could do her classes more often! Thanks to Barb's informative and inspiring classes I decided to become an instructor myself. I'm very grateful for having been introduced to yoga and for meeting many wonderful teachers along the way, especially Barb.

Yoga student to teacher

I have had the privilege of being a yoga student in the teacher certification course
As green as I came in, I have learned proper approaches to teaching, adjusting and delivering " how to" poses with huge emphasis on safely approaching poses and how important it is for the mind to be engaged above every aspect.
Thank you Barb

Barb is amazing!

I was lucky enough to take Barb's Teacher Training program and it literally changed my life. I left the teaching profession (education) and became a full time yoga teacher. Barb continues to stay in contact with me and guides me whenever I need help or feel lost. She has been there for me for the birth of my second child and has given me excellent advice on my newest endeavor of becoming a general manager of a new yoga studio.

Barb's classes are well thought out have excellent progression of poses. I leave her classes feeling full and hopeful.

200 he YTT

I took the 200hr YTT corse with Barb in the fall of 2014. Entering the course I was nervous but after the first day I quickly realized I made the right decision to train with Barb. She is kindhearted, encouraging and is passionate about her work. I believe Barb has equipped myself and all of her YTTs with a solid foundation of anatomy, asanas and yoga philosophy. As well, Barb has given me the tools I need to recognize and cue proper alignment to avoid injuries and keep my students safe.

Although I have completed the in class training course with Barb my yoga teacher training hasn't ended. Any time I have a question, concern or am in need of Barbs help she does not think twice about offering her time and assistance. She continues to stay in touch with all of her past students and has significantly impacted my life in a way I never knew was possible. If you are considering taking the 200hr yoga teacher training course I cannot praise Barb enough. It was a privilege to have her guide me through this journey.

A truly inspiring teacher

I have been taking Barb's classes for almost 6 years now and will continue to follow her wherever she finds places to practice! Barb teaches every class with compassion and a knowledge of yoga that leaves us all feeling empowered and stronger when we leave. After taking a class with Barb, I feel stronger both physically and mentally and ready to take on the world. I look forward to many more meetings on my mat with Barb and one day hope to take her renowned teacher training course :)

Settling in on your mat

Many years ago I took my first Yoga class with Barb. Barb was instrumental in teaching me the benefits of coming to my mat, settling in and taking time for myself. She is very insightful to the needs of new and experienced learners. She has a calmness, openness and compassion about her that makes you feel comfortable.

One of the best

Barb's deep experience combined with her beautiful energy makes her classes a real treat. She intuitively knows if you want more from her and provides a class that is both challenging (if one wants it) and nourishing. Her knowledge, humility and years of experience make her classes (and YTT training) an experience not to be missed.

I love Barb's classes, her instructions are very detailed so you are never left wondering if you "have it right" she offers multiple levels tailored to each individual ability. Barb gently encourages and motivates, leaving you feeling relaxed yet spiritually energized.
