Absolute Beginner Series


This class is taught by:

Leslie Luft

Leslie is the owner and director of Absolute Yoga and an E-RYT 500 Yoga Alliance registered instructor. Prior to opening the studio and becoming a full-time yoga instructor and practitioner, Leslie spent 20 years working as a corporate/securities attorney in New York City and Long Island. When the stress of her career and the commute, together with her full time job as a mom to her two children, became overwhelming, she turned to yoga, which she had dabbled with on and off in college. Enjoying the many benefits that yoga had to offer her, she was inspired to get her teaching certification and bring the gift of yoga to others. Leslie received her 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification in ISHTA Yoga. Developed by Guru Alan Finger, ISHTA yoga is a modern, dynamic distillation of spiritual traditions which allows you to develop a personal yoga practice that meets your individual needs. Leslie has continued her studies in various styles of yoga, including Anusara™ yoga and is an Anusara™-inspired instructor. She has her 500 hour Yoga Alliance teaching certification from the Long Island Yoga School. She brings to her classes the benefits of each of these various styles, combining emphasis on the breath, with precise alignment, in a dynamic Anusara™ inspired sequence, encouraging her students to open not only their bodies and their mind, but also their hearts. She also has a certification in Pre-Natal yoga. Leslie credits her husband with encouraging her to follow her heart on her yogic journey and share her joy with others in the studio. She is thankful to all of her teachers who have inspired her and given her guidance over the years.

Margaret Jennings

Margaret's passion for yoga began more than a decade ago. She holds a Master's Degree in School Psychology and pursued her love of yoga when she retired. Margaret received her 200 hour RYT Certification in Refined Flow at Absolute Yoga. Her enthusiasm extends to the benefits of meditation. Margaret is certified in Meditation and Visual Imagery through the Huntington Meditation and V.I. Center. Her training is a combination of Anusara, which is based on bio-mechanical principals, blended with the breath and movement of Prana Flow. She continues to study Anatomy, Therapeutics and the emotional benefits of Yoga and Meditation. As a dedicated practitioner, Margaret views her practice as a way of life and one of the best ways to balance spiritual, emotional and physical healing. Within the framework of joyful exploration, she creates an environment for her students which promotes self discovery, curiosity, strength and peace. She is blessed to be loved and supported by her teachers and her wonderful family, Kevin, Kyle, Katie and Colleen.
