This calm steadiness of the senses is called yoga. Then one should become watchful, because yoga comes and goes.Katha Upanishad
Lesley brings to every class, every day, an excitement and enthusiasm that is palpable! She is professional, meticulous and pours her soul into teaching.
No form of exercise has ever given me the benefits physically and mentally that I receive from practicing yoga. I look forward to my workouts now!
It's hard to believe that it's been a full year of yoga, twice weekly practice. I've been successful in knocking off (and keeping off) about 10 pounds and feel more fit and agile than I have in years! Through it all Lesley has been a great coach!
I have been practicing yoga consistently for the past 4 years. I have learned more in the past 4 months at bcalm than I had in my previous 3 1/2 years of practice. I like that Lesley is able to balance the athleticism as well as the mindfulness in power yoga. She is always challenging me to try new things and I have surprised myself with what I can do. Bcalm is a welcoming place I can go to truly focus on myself and not all of my often overwhelming life responsibilities. All of Lesley's instructors are equally gifted in guiding me in my practice. I feel so blessed to be a part of the bCalm community.
Yoga for me: Every yoga class is a journey. I learn something different about myself each time I practice.It also helps me do whatever I do better, sharper, both physically and emotionally. bCalm helps me to experience this journey.
Practicing yoga at BCalm relaxes me and provides balance in my life. The teachers at bCalm push you physically and mentally beyond your self limitations. One of my favorite feelings is walking out of class knowing that I just experienced an amazing work out.
Stepping into bCalm Power Yoga is like embarking on a getaway for the spirit. The beautiful décor and calming colors bring an instant sense of peace. Once inside the studio, the warmth surrounds you as you ease onto your mat. Lesley Reilly is an incredible instructor, with a never-ending flow of challenging poses and assists designed to guide you towards your final destination! She brings to class an incredible knowledge of yoga that is both intuitive and instructional. She sees into each student and knows where they are coming from, and where they hope to be!
