About Yoga Journey

Lesley Isaacson of Yoga Journey

Yoga Journey is run by Lesley Isaacson who has been immersed in yoga living, teaching, and training for over 30 years.

Lesley’s own personal yoga journey has involved teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga, extensive work over many years with a senior Iyengar teacher, as well as training, workshops and serious study with teachers trained in the Krishnamacharya tradition, both in the UK and India.

Her unique style is to fuse these disciplines together in an eclectic approach, so that students can work at their own personal border.

Lesley seeks to balance, in any one practice, asana contrasted with stillness both within the asana and in pranayama and meditation. She believes that a focussed, disciplined asana practice can be experienced, hand in hand, with mental stillness and subtlety of breath so that the student’s whole being is involved. Each practice aims to explore freedom within asana and freedom from asana. Lesley hopes to share with students the breadth and joy of yoga, through asana, pranayama, meditation, chanting and silence, as a tool for personal development and self-transformation. She infuses her lessons with her joie de vivre, enthusiasm and sense of humour.

Lesley is a teacher trainer for the British Wheel of Yoga (www.bwy.org.uk), and is part the teaching faculty of Camyoga. She is trained as a Restorative Yoga Teacher with Adelene Cheong.

Lesley has recently registered with Yoga Alliance US as a E-RYT 500 tutor, in recognition of her many years’ experience as a teacher and teacher trainer.

She is proud to have trained over 100 of the next generation of yoga teachers to continue the flame of this ancient tradition.

Lesley was invited to participate as a teacher in the University of York randomised controlled trial on Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs and this programme is on offer to small groups or private tuition.

Lesley’s spiritual development has been nourished by the practice and teaching of homeopathy for nearly 20 years as well as Buddhist meditation. A deep-felt understanding of what constitutes true health and the relationship of the individual to the universe forms the bedrock of both her yoga and homeopathic philosophies.

She studies extensively with Joseph Reves, one of the 21st century homeopathy masters.

And… you can often find her on the tennis court or on her bike!




Lesley is a consistently placid but firm yoga teacher. She always keeps the class moving in a variety of ways, with time to explore our breathe and postures. I feel that I have made progress building my confidence and drawing on Lesley's encouragement to extend myself. She demonstrates and explains the postures clearly, but only with the thought for students to follow rather than to demonstrate how agile and able she is. She is patient and can uplift as well as help a student to relax. I enjoy every lesson.
