Lesley took her very first yoga class as a student at College of Charleston 7 years ago. She practiced off and on for several years, but it wasn’t until she moved to Columbia in 2015 for graduate school that she really fell in love with the practice. One day in a vinyasa flow class Lesley had that “aha” moment where mind, body, and breath were all connected. It didn’t take her long to realize that she wanted to help others find that same feeling of connection, and so she decided to become a teacher herself.
Lesley also works at the University of South Carolina’s school of public health where she helps improve public health programs across the state. When she is not practicing or teaching yoga, she is in the mountains rock climbing and camping, or riding her bike around downtown.
