about

lesley levenson

Lesley is grateful to be teaching, practicing and studying Yoga every day. She teaches classes of all sizes, ages and skill sets. She has a passion for introducing beginners to the world of yoga, bringing people who have left back to yoga, as well as working with experienced yogis to build their practice.

Lesley’s path to the yoga studio started years ago and continued to keep her centered and focused throughout her 30 + years in corporate America. She dove into teacher training during a period of mourning after her mom passed away. This helped her to deepen her practice, calm her mind and start healing her heart.

Lesley is a 500 RYT with the Yoga alliance and is continuing to learn and study every day. She completed her certification at New York’s acclaimed Sonic Yoga. When Lesley is not in the studio, you can often find her in Central Park with Lola, her new adorable toy poodle — a rescue from South Korea.

Whatever your level, come join Lesley on the mat to improve your balance, flexibility, and overall well-being.

Lesley helps successful women who are struggling with burnout, to move back to a place of harmony, purpose and vision.

This program is a 6- or 8-week program offered in 3 modules: You can take individual modules or take the entire course. This program offered in private or group settings

module 1: balance – Firm your foundation by unmasking all “cracks in the foundation” and reconstructing to create solid ground. Take a clear look at where you are today, how you arrived there, and distinguish between what is working for you and what is not. Reflect and settle any outstanding obstacles as we secure your foundation to embrace change and look forward to where you want to go. Learn to focus on your balance “physically, mentally, and emotionally.”

module 2: transformation/transition – This is the hard work of accepting change and moving through it by letting go of all that is not serving you as you move towards your ideal vision for your future. Creating a roadmap, tools and committed path for your next chapter.

module 3: resilience – Build the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual tenets that you need for sustenance. See yourself as the goddess warrior/survivor you are, as you build the skillset to maintain your positive focus. Life continues to happen so we will develop the tools needed to spring back when we lose our balance.
