Quite simply put, Leslie’s a true yogi-genius, and a pioneer in his field. 

He gets right down to the core concepts you absolutely must know to be a truly effective teacher or student of mind/body movement. Leslie couples his immense knowledge with a refreshing ability to translate complex information into real-world terms and give us instantly applicable tools that make the world of anatomy, yoga and breath something we can deeply experience and understand

I count him as one of my most formative teachers, and each time I leave his classroom, my worldview (and body!) has been shifted in the most powerful ways. Run, don’t walk, to his next session

When I wanted to upgrade the anatomy portion of our trainings, I turned to Leslie and Amy. My students love this training. It is the best course of its kind available to teacher trainers today.

Leslie does an outstanding job of teaching his students to think for themselves and to question the more “classical” cues we’ve taken for granted as being correct for every body. For those who are looking for rote responses, this can be challenging — it’s so much easier to walk away with a neat “if this, then that” check list than it is to be required to think. But “easier” does not produce “better”, and for some this shift in thinking is more than they’re ready to accept in their first encounter with it. Leslie’s consistent, kind, and thoughtful manner makes this shift attainable when the student’s ready for it.
