I was told three years ago after surgery on my lower spine that yoga or Pilates would really help and also as I have 30% scoliosis of my upper spine. I just had not found the right person until I started Yoga with Lesley Mylrea at Girls Allowed, two months ago. Already I can feel the strength in my core has improved and I’m more flexible than I have ever been. The ladies that are in Lesley’s class are all ages, shapes and fitness, so suitable for anyone. I really can’t praise Lesley and her classes enough. I have also attend her 2hr workshop which I would recommend.
