    Leslie’s work has been evolving a rational — non-mystical — approach to Yoga and Yoga Therapy. Leslie uses the immediate reality of human anatomy as a starting point for exploring issues of support and release, stability and freedom, space and boundaries. This process clarifies and validates much traditional wisdom while exposing many long-standing misconceptions and myths. By relating fundamental yogic concepts to their anatomical origins, Leslie’s approach resolves many doctrinal and philosophical differences between schools of Yoga.

    Leslie’s work has been evolving a rational — non-mystical — approach to Yoga and Yoga Therapy. Leslie uses the immediate reality of human anatomy as a starting point for exploring issues of support and release, stability and freedom, space and boundaries. This process clarifies and validates much traditional wisdom while exposing many long-standing misconceptions and myths. By relating fundamental yogic concepts to their anatomical origins, Leslie’s approach resolves many doctrinal and philosophical differences between schools of Yoga.
