My Yoga practice began in my teens when, despite not having been particularly good at any sort of physical activity at school nor feeling very comfortable in my own skin, I began following my mum to Yoga classes. I loved the way it made me feel and experienced a whole range of unexpected benefits that prompted me to begin a Yoga journey, which currently spans over 30 years.
Over the years I've continued to explore and train in various styles of Yoga as well as other mindful movement practices. I am trained to teach various styles of Yoga, as well as Pilates, Garuda, Gyrokinesis, Body Flying (aerial yoga), Birthlight Perinatal Yoga, Tai Chi and Chi Kong, and am currently training to teach the Alexander Technique.
I began teaching 20 years ago and have taught in many different contexts including: group classes, corporate Yoga, festivals, retreats, workshops, one to one, as well as mentoring and teaching on 200 hour recognised teacher training courses.
Leonora's Slow Flow Yoga Class
A secular approach to Yoga in which shape, form, movement, breath, effort, relationship, gravity, levity etc become tools for inner listening, not something to achieve or get right or wrong.
This class explores conscious, sustainable movement to build strength and awareness. Unhurried breath to centre and ground. An open level class suitable for anyone that likes to move and has some knowledge of yoga, whether it be basic or advanced.
My teaching style is deeply influenced by the other mindful movement practices I have studied and has a strong focus on embodied awareness and personal inquiry.
