Hi, I'm Lesley Muir and I offer fun, energising yoga classes that are designed for everyone to enjoy.
I love yoga and I want to inspire others to love it too and feel the benefits. Practicing yoga has made me physically stronger, but it has also helped me to feel comfortable with change or uncertainty and it allows me to really be happy and live in the moment - something I think everyone can relate to today. Especially right now.
After enjoying my daily practice for many years, I decided to train as a teacher and completed my 200 Hours YTT course in July 2018. It was one of the best things I ever did. Since then I have continued my training with Restorative Yoga and Anatomy Diplomas. I am now training as a Yoga Therapist and taking the YogaCampus Yoga Therapy Diploma.
When you start learning yoga you realise it's not about doing perfect Instagram poses, it's a life long practice and a powerful way of empowering yourself to take responsibility for your own wellbeing. And the more you learn about yoga, the more you realise there is to learn. As a teacher, continuing my own learning and development is very important to me. In addition to vinyasa and hatha yoga training, I recently completed an additional yoga anatomy intensive course and have completed workshops on safe adjustments.
My yoga classes are designed around Patanjali's 8 limbs of yoga, to combine asana practice with breathwork and meditaton for the chance to re-balance and de-stress. They are suitable for everyone to enjoy and practice, at a level that suits them.
Tailored for all abilities, each yoga class starts and ends with pranayama breathing and a short meditation to calm the mind and help you to develop a greater ability to focus and concentrate.
I always teach in small groups to ensure that all students can benefit from personal attention and a friendly, welcoming environment. Now as my yoga classes have migrated online, I try to replicate the same format but using Zoom. Soon I will be opening a beautiful new garden yoga studio for small group classes and individualised yoga therapy sessions.
