What Our Clients Are Saying…
Lee’s yoga class is an oasis of calm in a hectic schedule. The gentle, yet challenging, class stretches the body and restores the mind. Lee’s commitment to her teaching is evident as she guides and supports us through poses and breath work. I recommend the class to anyone looking to improve their flexibility, strength, balance and peace of mind!Yvonne H., Toronto
