Yoga may increase flexibility, decrease muscular pain, and improve motor functioning.

“This is the most intense physical exercise I do all week and it’s better to do it with Leah than doing it on my own!” — Glenn    “It’s the only program I found in the last four years that helps me arrest the progress of this disease.” — John

“I have worked with personal trainers and I have a good idea of what I want in a trainer. When I met Leah I was concerned about her being too young. I am 61 years old and have Parkinson’s Disease so I want to make sure the people I work with are knowledgeable. I really liked her personality so I decided to give her a try. She is a fast learner. She doesn’t have a fragile ego. Some trainers are in it for themselves and not for the person they are training, and because of that they don’t take input from the client well. Leah realized we could work as a unit. My personality requires results and lack of boredom. She has been able to show me results and push me further. I have recommended her to a few people and everyone has thanked me. I am very happy with her training.” — Mary Lou
