Lesley Charters has been practising yoga since 2000 and completed a 3-year yoga teacher training course with the Inner Yoga Trust in 2007.

I trained to teach on the IYT teacher training courses and worked with the Inner Yoga Trust on their courses for over 10 years. My teaching is inspired by teachers of the Inner Yoga Trust, and by students of Vanda Scaravelli.

I did a Chemistry degree when I finished school and later trained as a Science and Chemistry teacher.  I have taught A Level Chemistry for over 20 years; I am a qualified Mountain Leader: I ran a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group and worked on Mountain Leader Training courses run by Hampshire County Council.

I  love walking in the Lake District, Brecon Beacons and Dartmoor as well as the more local Southdowns and New Forest.
