Teachers > Lesley De Cruz
Lesley discovered Yoga at a time when she felt lost working a high-stress events job. With a background as an athlete, Lesley had always been interested in fitness. So, when her dad suggested she try a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training and explore the fitness industry, she went for it and never looked back. Lesley completed her 200-Hour Teacher Training with Dr Venky Reddy and supplemented that with a course on Backache Management. As someone who had struggled with injuries due her to athletic training, she wanted to explore the healing aspects of Yoga and Yoga Therapy.
Lesley loves to focus on nourishing and mindful flows, akin to a dance on the mat. Music and sound play a big part in her practice and how she uses the mat as a space for healing. To her, stepping onto the mat is therapy and she wants to be able to share that with her students. As a teacher and student, Vinyasa and Yin are the styles that Lesley resonates with most – creating a balance between movement and grounding.
