Leslie has been teaching Yoga for over 30 years and was a professional modern dancer, so she knows movement!

"Leslie can easily teach to all student levels. She readily adapts her strengths to fit the demands of the participants and can jump into any class and apply her vast knowledge base to deliver what people expect."

Leslie DoQui Sretenovic instructs the following:
  • Yoga: Yin (deep stretch)
  • VigorousFlexibility and relaxation.Yin goes beyond the average stretching routine. This quiet, meditative practice focuses on lengthening the muscles and releasing connective tissues (fascia). Gravity is your friend, as you reach your edge, holding a pose for several minutes. It complements yang or "active" yoga-it's a must for any athlete. Stress and injury restrict blood flow causing stiffness and pain. Yin Yoga can help blood circulate better. The focus of this practice is to stretch the large muscles groups that commonly hold stress, such as hips, lower back and shoulders.

  • Yoga Fundamentals
  • Yoga Fundamentals teaches basic foundation and preparation towards building a yoga practice.Participants will learn where and how to set hands and feet, basic breathing techniques and how to modify yoga poses.As the student gains a sure footing in these areas we will begin linking poses and exploring the transition between poses. Next, we will discuss the importance of bandas (root locks), and the vayus (the 5 directions of energies) and how breath and consciousness are inherently linked.All levels are welcome!
