You’ll be empowered to unearth answers for yourself through embodiment, intuition and self-study; and to have fun along the way. Be prepared to move, and be moved.
“Les’ courageous introspection, unabashed honesty and playful with breathe new life into age-old yoga philosophy.” Tiffany Cruikshank, L.Ac, MAOM, E-RYT.
“We often find ourselves on the edge. But if you step back from the edge, you can start to enjoy the view”. Les Leventhal
“We all have different gifts and challenges. Experience your gifts, but more importantly, experience your challenges.” Les Leventhal
Les owes his new life to yoga. It is because of this he gifts his yoga, and his life to others.
A life that journeyed Les from rock bottom to a world of endless possibility, he infuses fun, laughter, inspiration and transformation into all of his classes. His appreciation for all that is, radiates in all that he does.
Completing his teacher training in 2005 with the renowned Ana Forrest and assisting her with subsequent trainings, his studies are steeped in Forrest tradition. He has completed several trainings with Tias Little from which he has acquired much of his alignment and technique cues, as well as a firm foundation in the 8 Fold path of Buddhism. Les’ flow yoga has now reached the USA, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and soon to reach the UK and Europe. He has been featured twice in Yoga Journal magazine, interviewed by Darren Main, author of Yoga and The Path of The Urban Mystic, and by Joe Sarti of Voice America – Your Life Without Limits.
Les weaves in the 8 limbs of yoga, keeping the traditional styles a part of his classes while opening a window into our global cultural shift.
He provides the opportunity to heal your heart, sweat, sing, laugh, cry and just let go. Many classes have music. You’re encouraged to modify throughout, doing what you need to take care of your practice and allowing the ’rasa’ (the sap or juice) to flow freely.

- 15.30pm-6:00pm: Facing and Embracing Fears
This Arm balance and Inversions workshop empowers students to have fun with their fear, often achieving what they may
have previously thought not possible.
We’ll cover the foundations of setting up an arm balance for newer students, while more advanced practitioners are encouraged to try and explore various up-levels.
This workshop is accessible for all levels and teachers who want to pay special attention to this area of practice.
Flying is like a great fire of courage – once that flame is ignited – it never goes out. Arm Balances and Inversions can be some of
yoga’s most challenging yet fun poses to practice. Learn to safely defy gravity, starting with a single breath.
In this workshop you will strengthen your core to better support your arm balances. We will build upper body strength which will help support and build healthier wrists, elbows and shoulders. We will guide you to engage the legs, so they don’t take refuge in Savasana.
Begin cultivating awareness of your body in an upside down position and moving through space, while surfing from one pose to another. Yoga should be satisfying and fun, not a chore of full of fear. This workshop will launch you there.

inside each of us.
