Love Lesley!

Lesley is so experienced both as a yoga teacher and from her years of training in nursing that she makes you feel relaxed and in very safe hands. Lesley is a beautiful person both inside and out and brings all her care for others to her yoga classes. She is patient, especially with newcomers to yoga and encouraging. I would recommend her highly to someone looking for a yoga class whatever their level of competence. Diane x

An inspirational teacher

Lesley is a confident, friendly and very experienced yoga teacher. She is happy to suggest alternative postures for the individual which is really helpful for mature pupils. I can recommend her as a teacher for all ages and abilities. She has infinite patience!

Highly recommend!

After Eleven months!

My wife and I started Chair Yoga almost a year ago, enjoyed it from Day One and started to feel better in ourselves after a month. Commitments make attendance at the Balfour Centre for her yoga classes difficult, so Lesley is now preparing a personal programme to continue the yoga journey. Her ability and commitment as a yoga teacher is beyond question, her classes are focussed, with clear instructions and a touch of humour when needed. Lesley is very approachable and her many years service as a nurse provides 'extra advice' when needed. A thank you from us both.

Have found yoga again after 20 yr gap, went with trepidation to my first class with Lesley. Need not have worried. Have now been attending for approximately a month, feel I have developed in leaps and bounds, not only physically but with being much more self aware.
Lesley is warm and inviting, true caring nature for all abilities to develop the best that they can. I simply love the class a true inspiration for mind and body. Thank you.

Found my passion in life!

I've been attending Lesley's classes now for approx 6 months, having never done yoga before! I have loved every minute of it week in week out since the first time I went.
Lesley is truly inspirational, she is highly experienced, encouraging, helpful and makes everyone feel welcome. Although the classes have mixed abilities Lesley always makes sure each and everyone of us is able to get the best out of our session based on our capabilities. Her experience, passion and wonderful personality shines through from the second you meet her. I have seen many benefits already from yoga in mind, body and soul and couldn't imagine my life now without it. Thank you Lesley! x

A revelation!

My wife has been diagnosed with MS. Lesley's yoga class has been a revelation and it is visibly helping my wife. I attend to and I feel much less stressed after a day of work. We have had 2 classes and so are learners, but Lesley is a great teacher. If you haven't tried yoga you should, and give Lesley's class a go.

Great news but not a surprise.

Thank you Peter. I am so pleased that your yoga practice is helping you both. Yoga works on all levels and in so many ways to help us cope with what life gives us. It helps to improve our wellbeing. Better still it's so enjoyable! Keep up the good work both of you.

Intuitive and gentle

I have been practising yoga on and off for forty years but when I moved to Yorkshire I thought I would have to give it up as I had joint and spinal problems. This meant that I would not be able to attend class as I could no longer attain and hold poses as previously expected. But, I was wrong. In Lesley’s sessions, it is the individual that counts. There is no pressure and no public comment on one’s ability or lack of it.


Lesley stresses the importance of knowing your own body and how it feels ‘today’. She always provides alternatives to cover all abilities. If she thinks you are in difficulty, she bends and talks quietly, avoiding embarrassment. As a result, my yoga is far better than I ever expected it to be and so is my general health and flexibility. Thanks Lesley.

Look no further!

I have the utmost confidence in Lesley's ability to teach all aspects of yoga. She is very friendly and we are allowed to laugh in class! I have a deep respect for Lesley's commitment to teaching. She continues to teach me to recognise and develop the strength I have within me, both physically and spiritually. If you're teetering on the brink of joining a class, go ahead!

I have recently joined Lesley`s yoga classes and am thoroughly enjoying them both mentally and physically. If there is something which I cannot do Lesley quietly and discreetly shows me something which she knows I can do! She has such a calming influence and is so passionate about her role and strives to make it enjoyable for all abilities. She gives lots of praise and encouragement. I have the utmost trust in her. One lovely lady.

Really 1st Class!

I attended Lesley's class for over 2 years, starting as an absolute beginner, and since leaving the Hull area for work in Aberdeen have really missed these sessions. She is a very patient, calm person with a wonderful ability to put everyone at ease and to trust in her and their own capabilities. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lesley to anyone thinking of taking up yoga, or indeed for the more experienced who would like to progress.
