LEN GILLESPIE

“I am keenly aware of life’s many challenges and am passionate about sharing with others howthe tools of yoga can be used to improve our day to day lives.

My goal is to inspire and empower people to take responsibility for their health and happiness. Supporting them in taking that “first small step” towards new, more positive habits, that in turn lead to powerful personal transformation”.
