“Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” – Theodore Roosevelt
Afro Flow Yoga defines “grounding” as re-connecting with the Earth, the core provider and solid foundation that we came from and rely on for nourishment on all levels. As we ground down through our feet, we establish a vital connection with the Earth. Only when solidly grounded, can we uplift our souls and reach for something greater!
Afro Flow Yoga infuses electrifying dance movements of the African Diaspora with a meditative yoga sequence of gentle yet powerful stretches.
Deeply connect with the soulful rhythmic drums, energize your chakras, gain strength and flexibility and rejoice in the bliss of feeling renewed, grounded and peaceful!
We offer group sessions weekly, and private (group or individual) classes with Leslie can be scheduled as well. Email Leslie for more information on private sessions.

“Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.” – Sarah Bernhardt
Afro Flow Yoga defines “energy” as the life force that propels you forward, a tangible force that can heal your body. Your level of energy begins in your mind and can be transferred to others. When you are energized, your body can function at its highest level, regardless of imperfect circumstances, like lack of sleep or bad weather! In Afro Flow Yoga, we cultivate a space for positive energy to blossom. Our mission is help people feel SO good, that this new radiance overflows into their communities and beyond!
“When the music changes, do does the dance.” – African Proverb
Live drums, hearts beating, the ebb and flow of the ocean, breath and movement, adrenaline, the sway of slim trees in the wind, the swirl of sand moving in the rhythmic wind across the Sahara desert…we can find a rhythmic groove in everything around us and inside us.
Afro Flow Yoga celebrates life’s rhythm and movement and encourages students to find their own inner rhythm by moving their bodies in gratitude to live drumming!
“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” – Hindu Prince, Gautama Siddharta, the founder of Buddhism
The human being’s natural state is peace. When we move the body and shake off physical stress and dis-ease, we can rest peacefully in the mind. Afro Flow Yoga balances the body’s physical need to move and release with the mind’s desire to rest in stillness. When the body is at ease, meditation happens easily in the mind.
