Lesley Ramsey

I began practicing and studying yoga 17 years ago when I developed asthma and a few other health problems needed a regular practice to balance out the rigors of my professional life. For nearly two decades, I have worked to make Texas a better place through public interest issue advocacy, lobbying, organizing and now as a nonprofit fundraising and strategic consultant. My yoga practice has sustained me in more ways than I could have imagined. It’s offered me evidence of my own strength, courage, flexibility, compassion and endurance. I have learned first hand the power of this practice to provide clarity and help me create balance in my life, and I want to help others achieve this, too. I earned my RYT 200 at Castle Hill Fitness Yoga School in Austin in 2010 and RYT 500 with Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker at the San Marcos School of Yoga in January 2017. Yoga has proven for me to be the most accessible pathway to introspection, contemplation and meditation, which I need to recharge my energy, renew my drive and recover from the scrapes and bruises of life in the everyday modern working world. I teach and practice Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Yoga for full spectrum nourishment of my physical, spiritual and mental self. My classes will challenge you so you can experience your innate vitality and strength, and activate the parasympathetic nervous system to productively deal with the stress of work and life. You will leave feeling alive, refreshed and ready to take on new challenges!
