Leslie Dowst - Instructor
Leslie Adams Dowst (Jyoti) was first introduced to yoga in the mid-60’s by her mother who taught Hatha Yoga in the home and church halls (long before there were established yoga studios). For many years a yoga practice moved in and out of her life. Shortly after moving to New Hampshire in 2007 she connected with a studio and a regular practice followed. The focus on a spiritual practice as well as a physical practice found at Forever Yoga only served to deepen her commitment. A 2017 graduate of the Forever Yoga 200-Hour Teacher Training Program, she stages each class with the idea of union of body, mind and spirit. Her goal is to keep yoga accessible to all and to meet the student’s need, whatever that might be. She is also a Level II Reiki practitioner. When not working as a school nurse, graphic designer, theater house manager, gardener, and artist, she enjoys time on her farm with two donkeys, 2 goats, and 4 cats.
