BEN LESLIE

In my classes, you can expect to sweat, laugh and reflect while you learn something new about yoga (and possibly about yourself) and to emerge feeling calm and relaxed.  I plan all my classes around three themes:

  • Peak Flow: My classes are designed to make challenging, "peak" yoga postures more accessible for you with the right combination of stretching, strengthening and alignment.  

  • Steady​ ​Flow:​ I think slowing down and progressing steadily can make vinyasa even more rewarding by giving us time to safely find our edge and to cultivate yoga’s more subtle benefits.

  • Mindful​ ​Flow:​ ​We can’t always control what happens in our lives but we can do our best to respond calmly and consciously to whatever happens. In my experience, a consistent yoga practice can help us build and maintain our capacity for mindfulness.

 

To me, yoga is a beautiful experiment that has revolutionized my physical, mental, and emotional well-being. I think yoga can help us ask and sometimes even answer the biggest questions we have about ourselves and the Universe.  I especially love vinyasa classes for the way they inspire and challenge me while still leaving space for me to reflect and relax.

 

I am inspired in my teaching by own yoga practice and by my teachers: Jason Crandell, Todd Jackson, Don and Amba Stapleton, and Rusty Wells.  I’ve completed close to a thousand hours of yoga teacher trainings and I’m honored to continue mentoring with Jason Crandell as an assistant in his advanced teacher trainings.
