Reiki Teacher/Master

I have had the experience of being taught level 1 and level 2 Reiki. The manuals and teaching weekends were open, friendly and gave plenty of time to practice what had been taught. I have no hesitation in recommending Lianne to future students and feel her expertise and commitment to ongoing support is excellent.

The teacher who changed my life.

I have been a yoga student of Leanne's since Sol Yoga Centres conception. I can honesty say that through her teachings I have become much fitter, more focused and have a clearer understanding of yoga philosophy which I can use, albeit in a small way, in my daily life. So glad you are my teacher Leanne xx

A necessary part of my week!

I was dragged into the class against my will by a vfriend who did 3 sessions them left. That was neraly 3 years ago and I'm still there....
I have a debilitating illness where my joints, muscles in all parts of my body hurt. Yoga has made a tremendous difference and on rare occasions when I am unable to get to class I really miss it and the rest of my group as we are very close.
My only very small 'niggle' is that ocassionally I'd like to be told how far off getting the moves right I may be as I know I am increasingly finding it more difficult.
I shall continue with this class for as long as it continues....

This is my first experience of yoga and have been attending classes with Lianne for about 4 months. Lianne is an experienced teacher who is very safety oriented. Also makes the classes interesting with teachings of yoga and the health benefits that yoga provides. Being new to yoga I feel that I would be hard pushed to find a teacher near to me that has exceeded my expectations and would recommend to anyone.

Energetic, enthusiastic

I have been with Linanne since her early days and witness first hand her growth and development as a fine teacher,
It was encouraging to see that she slowly got her basics correct and always concentrated on the safely aspect of the posture with emphatic concerns to the individual's physical restriction which is always a problem in classes of mixed ability.
She has that energetic enthusiasm with only comes with genuine love of her vocation and filters it back to the group.
It has truly been a privilege to have participated in that journey on my visits to Spain.

Thank you Lianne

I thought yoga would be a good stretch class and help with flexibility, it is BUT it is so much more. Lianne's class helps with my understanding of my spiritual self. Through her classes I have made some very special friends. I am also physically stronger and feel better than I have for a long time. Body, mind spirit - all covered here.
