the power of silence..

I stayed present, waiting peacefully to hear the next move...his voice was kind and healing
Definitely Beginner Level
Jennifer Baker - -
This is a fine class for those who want to take their time but the additional instruction took me out of these very basic poses. I think if it was shorter with less instruction it would've been a stronger video.
Kind of stressed me out more than I was to begin with...

I say this with regret simply because I do not want to make anyone feel bad... but this class stressed me out even more! Lots of talking, and unnecessary inflections in her voice which were agitating. At one point I thought she was going to make me hold my breath forever as she counted to 5, then talked, and talked a little more, and a little more... then finally started counting back down.
Forced me to stay present

This is a slower paced class, which made some of the poses very intense. It was stress relieving in the sense that for a while I couldn't think about anything else except my thighs burning. Feeling refreshed and centered!

Thank you Lesley for a wonderful blending of alignment, breath awareness and perfect pacing. I feel stronger and more relaxed; such a great combo. Thank you for continuing to return to your theme to remind us, and loved your quote at the end. Mary

Video is not playing at all :0(
Level 1
Kate Remsen - -
Couldn't get through the entire class. A traditional level 2 class does not require this much instruction, level 2 yogi's know the poses already and how to properly align. This is not for me.
STRESSFUL
Nathalie De Anda - -
This class only added to my stress. I agree with the comment below, definitely a level 1 class. She talked waaaaaaay too much, only got 20 min in.
Not a fan
Lauren Gutierrez - -
This is definitely a Level 1 class. Far, far too much explanation for a Level 2 class. Less talkie, more yogaie please. I had to continue after the class was over just cause I wanted actual stress release ;)

Wonderful class!!
Rachel Boggia - -
Skillfully sequenced class with very classic yogaworks instruction. I felt relief from the physical manifestations of stress, such as tightness in the shoulder girdle. I did not find much energetic or emotional relief from my racing mind and easily irritated nervous system, due to slow pace and physically detailed instruction. I think I needed a faster paced and more spacious class to get the sort of relief I was looking for, this was a bit heady and I was already too much in my head when I started. Nothing wrong with the teachers' instructions here, just an observation that I hope will help others choose a good class for them.

Leslie was excellent
Lovely class!
Yvette Carling - -
Lesley, thank you! What a clear and concise teacher you are! Thank you for a well-rounded class. To you, Namaste.
Slow and relaxing
Jen McGrath - -
I feel less stressed. Good instructions!
Wonderful Teacher!
Hannah Lewis - -
I haven't taken Leslie's class since I moved a few years ago, and I forgot what a terrific teacher she is. This class was like meeting up with an old friend, and it melted away any physical and emotional stress that I was holding onto. By focusing on perfect alignment, this class can really get a burn going too!
Melissa Fisher - -
Amazing class and instruction!
Lien Imbrechts - -
This is a class with lots of instructions, but this enables you to take your time with each pose which aids the stress release. Nice well-rounded class with some sun salutations to warm up, shoulder opening poses in the middle and back bends/hamstring release. A short but lovely pranayama exercise towards the end too. I just wish there were a few more hip opening poses involved to make it perfect.
Jami Woods - -
This is a nice level 1 class with lots of instruction and slow pace...should just be renamed Level 1.
Thank you :)
Jenifer F - -
As usual another great yoga practice with Lesley :D
Enjoyed
Nancy Willson - -
I appreciated the instructions and felt they were appropriate for level 2, since many of them were actions reminders that a beginner would have difficulty executing. I especially liked the ending: touching of the head for clarity, heart for intention and mouth for wise speech.
shannon cornelius - -
this felt like a level 1 class- lots of instruction to get into poses that level 2 should already know. I liked the sequence but the pace felt slow because of the amount of instruction and description
Loved it
Isabel Arthur - -
The instruction was great for connecting with the poses at a deeper level and keeping the mind focused in the present moment. Lots of good stretching and strength mixed in.
Great for Stress and Focus
LM C - -
This class is wonderful for anyone who needs to destress. My back and shoulders got some nice stretches, while my legs worked on balance and strength. I see someone mentioned she talked a lot. I didn't notice that, as her voice is really soothing and her message is clear. I feel so relaxed.
Not for me.
Rebecca Barker - -
There was too much talking in this video for me. It actually made me feel more stressed.
Level 1
Lesley Lotto - -
Definitely beginners, never done yoga class.
So nice!
Alissa Gamberg - -
Thank you Lesley! I like this teacher's style...she seems like a sweet, compassionate person. I don't mind all the verbal instruction, contrary to what others have been saying. Sometimes it's nice to listen to a teacher's voice, even if we don't think we need reminders of how to do the poses.
Ghazaleh Radaza - -
Too much talking for level 2
Level 2 definitely, just not for snobs
BARBARA BELEJEC - -
It is a great class. Comments from people that there is "too much talking" sound like maybe they do not know how to really relax and benefit from yoga. Thank you.
Awesome.
Tamara Bevan - -
Alexandria always gives great perfectly timed instruction throughout the practice. This workout can work for level 1 and 2. It was very challenging in the legs for strength . I followed Alexandria here from YouTube . She is awesome . Especially if you practice at home and you really want to advance your practice and maintain and learn proper form.
Level 1, not 2
Kathleen Solorio - -
Way too much instruction for level 2 class. I would assume we already know how to do oujii breathing at this level (just one example). Too much talking during the poses (hanging out in down dog while the basics of yoga are explained). I really didn't get much out of this introductory class.
Carolina Romero - -
This class seems more of n Beginner Level class, there is a lot of talking/instruction. CR.
