" I have been working with Lesley Bodywise Derby for over a year now and to be honest I would be lost without her. Lesley supported me during my recovery from an operation. Lesley is calm approachable and extremely knowledgeable, her calmmess and kindness come through in her teaching. I would recommend Lesley/ Bodywise 100%" Mary Gharmount 2023

"After a number of years dealing with pelvic floor issues, including a referral to hospital, a friend recommended Lesley. Following a couple of private consultations, I had the confidence to join her regular classes. I have really noticed a huge improvement and will continue to attend the classes, which are welcoming and friendly. Lesley is professional, sensitive and offers excellent practical guidance and support "
