‘The point is not what the physician can do for the patient, but what the physician can do to open the doors to allow the patient to heal him or herself’ -Rollin Becker D.O.-
To maintain the integrity and depth of training for performers in Canada we need people of the caliber and commitment of Lesley.

Lesley’s investigations…are not only creative and freeing but pioneering. She approaches this kind of work with curiosity and instinct and is also not afraid to ask others for their thoughts in order to proceed even further. Lesley is an intelligent, sensitive, skilled, forward thinking, opportunity creating and humble teacher.

The three-hour workshop Lesley created for my class focused my ability to listen to my body. As a teacher, Lesley is engaging, open, and provides clear communication and instructions. She opened my eyes to a new way of thinking and helped me improve my body-maps and mind-maps.

Lesley’s classes took me on inner voyage where time and space and the here and now, became one. My body entered into a state of deep healing and relaxation, much deeper than any other class I had ever experienced.

Working with Lesley is a very different experience from working with other healthcare providers. I came to Lesley with a persistent discomfort related to my rib cage. Taking a holistic approach to her bodywork, Lesley was able to unwind tension patterns throughout the body that were contributing to my discomfort and pain. As beneficial as this was, most importantly she worked with me to explore how my pain and discomfort was arising and suggested exercises for me to explore further and find relief. It was this self-empowerment that i found so useful and invaluable.

Lesley listens…deeply; to your body and your soul. She works with you, not on you. When you work with Lesley, you are deeply, thoughtfully and respectfully attended to. The experience is uncommon in our times.
Jo-Ann Ferriera, B.S.W. M. Ed.
Lesley is competent, trustworthy, and totally sincere.
When I leave her office I always feel grounded and embodied. I feel light, and my gait is strong.
I love that Lesley has life experience and understands a woman’s thinking.

I looked forward to Lesley’s classes each week. They truly helped replenish me by relaxing my nervous system and helping me tap into the flow and alignment in my body. The way Lesley shares her depth of knowledge and facilitation feels organic and motivating yet without an ounce of force. I’d recommend her classes to anyone looking to reconnect with their bodies and the wonderful essence of themselves.
