It has to be Natarajasana, or Lord of the Dance pose. The pose it’s self is rich with meaning besides being a wonderful physical challenge. It teaches us about change and the cycle of birth and death to rebirth. Change is a constant and the posture show us how to stay balanced no matter what is going on in our minds or the world around us.
What you seek is seeking you.” — Rumi
Knowing that every time I step on my mat…it allows me to re-connect to my true self. “The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.” I find no matter what is going on in life, there is a quiet place on the mat.
“Leslie is obviously very knowledgeable and passionate when it comes to anatomy but I loved that it was easy to see how committed she is to her own physical and spiritual practice.Your enthusiasm and openness was infectious.”
