Lezleigh, a graduate of Radford University, started her journey into the mind, body and spirit 10 years ago when her son, Kade, was born at 26 weeks. Her will to help him survive was tested as her c-section became infected. Along with caring for herself, Lezleigh was trying to care for her 2 lbs 6 oz baby in the Neonatal intensive Care Unit. It is there that she was introduced to the concept “Kangaroo care,” or skin to skin, healing touch. Along with prayerful meditation and healing touch, Lezleigh and Kade healed much more quickly than doctors anticipated. Without realizing it, Lezleigh was practicing Reiki. Lezleigh’s journey continued down the physical path as she became a certified fitness instructor (AFAA) and personal trainer (IFTA). Lezleigh has spent the last several years reading books on spirituality, meditation, yoga and law of attraction. She has a strong appreciation for both Eastern and Western religions. Along with receiving several certifications that require a mindful practice to fitness, she is a dedicated “yogi” at heart. Lezleigh spends time every day in prayerful meditation. She is a Reiki Master as well as an ordained Minister. Lezleigh recently had the honor of ordaining the marriage of a dear friend. She has a passion for helping people improve the quality of lives through various holistic modalities.
