Leanne is an excellent teacher….the classes are well structured and she is always careful to ensure the level is right, and will adjust things if people have particular health problems. Her instructions are very clear, and the whole class has a welcoming, warm atmosphere. I have benefited hugely from the exercises, and would recommend her classes to anyone of any age – Jane
