'We can make a choice to take a positive approach to our health and wellbeing to minimise risks of chronic disease, feel better and remain independent for longer'
My background in community education and health promotion allow me to provide an educational focus to my classes. I believe in the importance of 'educating and empowering ' people to not only 'do and attend' classes, but to understand the WHY and BENEFITS of what we do.
My programs draw on my life experience and my training in Health Promotion, Yoga, Chair Yoga, Accessible Yoga, Yoga for Healthy Ageing, Ayurveda, Mindfulness, Falls Prevention and Active Ageing.

Hi, I'm Lesley,
I teach programs and classes that are designed for people mid life and beyond and welcome beginners.
Ageing is inevitable, our genes and lifestyle play a role in how we feel however we can make a choice to take a positive and proactive approach to our health and wellbeing to minimise risks of chronic disease, feel better and remain independent for longer.
As you would be aware Yoga is a great practice to improve balance, strength and mobility.
In addition to the physical benefits, yoga and mindfulness techniques help to cultivate calm, resilience and acceptance of 'what is' as we navigate the many changes that take place during our life.
My training enables me to modify the practice to ensure it is safe for people with conditions such as arthritis, osteoporosis and limited mobility. It's never too late to embark on activities to improve wellbeing.
Classes at Lefevre Community Stadium Osborne and Henley Beach or contact me to bring a class to your aged care setting.
