Lesley’s yoga journey first began in 2006 when she started practicing classic 26 and 2 hot yoga in Portland, Oregon. She discovered how tight and restricted her body was from all of her athletic pursuits (prior to discovering yoga, she spent years playing competitive sports), and she decided to take one of these classes every day, which changed her body in ways she never expected. A trip to Bali in 2012 allowed her to completely immerse herself in all different types of yoga, and it was there that she discovered her love for the vinyasa flow style of asana practice. In the summer of 2015, she traveled to India to do her first yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, and she came back with a renewed sense of what it means to practice yoga. She learned the importance of meditation to balance out the intense physical asanas, and she gained further insight on how it is possible to maintain true inner peace in even the most chaotic environment. In 2016, she furthered her education with an Ashtanga Vinyasa 200 Hour training with All Yoga Thailand and has incorporated all that she has learned into both her teaching style and her own practice. Since moving to Los Angles, California, she earned a certification in Mat Pilates through Equinox and also performs as a professional contortionist under the name Lyra Star.
