Guided practices to support your journey.

About Paths to Awareness

Welcome to Paths to Awareness. Thank you for visiting my site. I’m Lesa, and I offer classes and workshops in mindfulness meditation, qigong and yin yoga. All classes are presently offered on-line on the Zoom platform.

While meditation, qigong and yoga are different from one another in origin and practice, they all cultivate embodied presence, awareness, overall well-being, clarity, steadiness, kindness, compassion and ease.  

Over the years, I have come to love these life-affirming practices and to appreciate deeply the many benefits they offer. I bring them forward so you too may enjoy the benefits. My classes are suitable and beneficial for both new and experienced practitioners. 

If you have questions, please email me at

I hope to see you in class soon.

Lesa has long standing practices of meditation, qigong, tai chi and yoga. Her teachers include Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach and Anne Cushman (Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Certification Program), Teja Bell (Radiant Heart Qigong Level I In-Depth Training & Teacher Certification Course), Dina Amsterdam (InnerYoga Teacher Certification, 200 RYT), Sifu Shi Yanran and the monks from the Shaolin Temple USA, and Sifu Bryant Fong.
