Hi, my name is Leslie Paddock, and my story doesn’t have wild adventures or happy endings, but rather happy beginnings. I became a very devoted yoga student in 2013, practicing many styles of yoga including Vinyasa, Barkan, and Bikram. I trained under Cindy Lunsford, Julie Bell, and Baron Baptiste. Through this journey, I learned that success in yoga, and in life, is sometimes about failing 100 times to succeed one time. Yoga is an ongoing process rather than a final product, with many steps and obstacles along the way. This has been the most transformational period of my life. I have uncovered strengths I never knew I possessed, learned to face insecurities head on, and discovered what is meaningful about life while letting go of many things along the way. Yoga has given me the confidence and the ability to courageously lead myself and others in a way that I never imagined possible. I’ve made solid friendships that mean the world to me and I couldn’t imagine my life any other way! When I am not at a yoga studio teaching or practicing, I am most likely walking my dogs between being a full-time assistant manager in a group home. The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. <3 200 Hour RYA Certified High Peaks Hot Vinyasa 100 Hour Baptiste Journey into Power Art of Assisting Advanced Art of Assisting NuPowerYoga Sculpt CPR/ First Aid
