Yoga is to clean the pollution in our hearts, clean toxic greed and transform selfishness into serving others.
~ Radhanath Swami
Lesley Lotto began practicing yoga more than 25 years ago in Los Angeles where she grew up. But it wasn't until she moved to Montana for a career in Broadcast Journalism that she began a regular and very personal practice. In Missoula, Lesley tried Hot Yoga (because it's freezing there!), then moved into a sincere appreciation for all styles and lineages of yoga. At that time, one of Lesley's teachers brought a 200 hour certification training to a yoga studio in Missoula from Prana Mandir Yoga of New York. It was nearly one year of intense studies of the history and philosophy of yoga and learning sequencing and leading classes and events. Yoga Yay! was born in that training with three besties who loved practicing and "geeking out" on yoga so much we would say, "Yoga Yay!". Since then Lesley has practiced or studied with Raghunath, Seane Corn, Rolf Gates, Bryan Kest, Annie Carpenter, Dharma Mittra and Gurmukh. Lesley has an at-home yoga studio where she practices daily and offers private classes. She resides outside NYC.
