TESTIMONIALS

LEIGH IS A GIFT.

LEIGH HELPS OTHERS BE WHAT THEY WANT TO BE.

 I AM ALWAYS STRUCK BY LEIGH’S GENUINE LOVE AND COMPASSION. 

LEIGH IS SO CARING AND ATTENTIVE. HER GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT AND COMPASSION MAKE ME WANT TO BE A BETTER PERSON!

LEIGH IS GENUINE TO HER CORE. 

SHE’S AMAZING.

LEIGH OFFERS LISTENING EARS AND LOVING WORDS.

AMONG MANY OTHER WONDERFUL QUALITIES, LEIGH IS ONE OF THE BEST LISTENERS I KNOW. SHE TRULY CARES AND SYMPATHIZES WITH WHATEVER THE ISSUE IS.
 

LEIGH IS SO GENUINE, KIND, GENTLE, AND SPIRITED! I AM GRATEFUL FOR HER INSIGHTS BUT MOST THANKFUL FOR HER PRESENCE.

WHAT I REALLY LOVE ABOUT LEIGH IS HER ABILITY TO HELP ME TEASE OUT THE ESSENCE OF AN EVENT OR SITUATION. SHE GENUINELY CARES ABOUT EACH DETAIL, THE HOW’S AND WHY’S OF WHATEVER IT IS.

 

LEIGH IS MY “GO-TO-PERSON”. SHE HELPS ME, INSPIRES ME. SHE IS CAPABLE OF ANY GREAT TASK YET SO HUMBLE AND GENTLE.

 

LEIGH MAKES THE HARD TIMES EASIER TO DEAL WITH.

LEIGH IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE. SHE HAS A WAY OF MAKING EVERYTHING BETTER JUST BE BEING HERSELF. LEIGH HAS IMPACTED OUR COMMUNITY WITH HER BRIGHT LIGHT, KIND SPIRIT, AND WARMTH.

ONE OF THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT LEIGH IS HER PRESENCE. WHENEVER WE TALK SHE GIVES HER UNDIVIDED ATTENTION, AND OF HER LOVING HEART, MAKING ME FEEL SHE’S THERE, AND THAT I AM IMPORTANT TO HER.

 

I HAVE NEVER MET A KINDER SOUL THAN LEIGH.

THERE IS ONLY ONE LEIGH!

LEIGH HAS MADE AN INDELIBLE MARK ON MY LIFE IN SO MANY WAYS.

LEIGH HAS A SPECIAL TOUCH, WHEN IT COMES TO VERBAL ENCOURAGEMENT AND TRULY FEELING EMPATHY FOR OTHERS

LEIGH IS THE EVER-PRESENT TEACHER.

 

IT IS TOUGH TO PUT INTO WORDS LEIGH’S THOUGHTFULNESS FOR OTHERS. IT FEELS INCREDIBLY WELCOMING WHEN YOU KNOW THAT SOMEONE CARES AS MUCH AS LEIGH DOES. THIS COMES THROUGH IN HER ATTENTION TO DETAILS, HER CURIOSITY ABOUT OTHERS, AND HOW THEY FEEL. HER HONESTY AND SINCERITY SET HER APART.

LEIGH’S BIG HEART IS AHEAD OF THE CURVE. HER COMPASSION AND ABILITY TO EMPATHIZE AND PUT HERSELF IN ANOTHER’S PLACE IS SECOND TO NONE. IT IS ONE OF THE REASONS THAT SHE HAS SO MANY CLOSE AND LONGTIME FRIENDS, HER WARM-HEARTEDNESS THAT MAKES A PERSON FEEL UNDERSTOOD AND LOVED EVEN FROM AFAR.

 

LEIGH IS GENUINELY CONCERNED ABOUT THE WELL-BEING OF OTHERS.

 

IT IS SO EASY TO SHARE EVERYTHING WITH LEIGH. SHE IS AN AMAZING LISTENER, ASKING KIND QUESTIONS, TAKING IN EVERY DETAIL WITH EARNEST EMPATHY, AND NEVER JUDGING.

 

IT IS SUCH A GIFT TO HAVE A PERSON TO SHARE WITH THE FULL SPECTRUM OF LIFE’S EXPERIENCES AND TO FEEL SO COMFORTABLE, LAUGHING, CRYING, WORRYING AND CELEBRATING TOGETHER. IT’S HER LOYALTY, HONEST, AND INTEGRITY THAT I HAVE ALWAYS VALUED IN LEIGH. SHE IS STEADFAST.

 

I ADMIRE LEIGH’S STRENGTH, KINDNESS AND ABILITY TO CONNECT. LEIGH IS JOY. AND SHE GIVES LOVE AND CARE. SHE IS A WONDERFUL PERSON TO EVERYONE SHE MEETS.

 

LEIGH HAS A WAY OF BRIGHTENING THE WORLD!

 

I OFTEN NEED HER TYPE OF CARING – THE ENERGY AND LOVE SHE DEVOTES TO EVERYTHING! AND EVERYONE! SHE MAKES ME FEEL TREASURED AND THAT I MATTER. SHE MAKES ME FEEL VALIDATED.

 

IN A LIFE IN WHICH CONNECTIONS MEAN SO MUCH, MY CONNECTION TO LEIGH HAS MADE ME HAPPY! I LOVE HER CURIOSITY AND OPEN MINDEDNESS, HER COMPASSION AND CONNECTION TO OTHERS, ESPECIALLY CHILDREN. I LOVE HER THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.

~ FROM STUDENTS ~

 

MRS. SLOSS INCLUDES EVERYONE WELL. HER STRENGTHS ARE HER IMAGERY. I LOVE THE RELAXING ASPECT TO THE LESSONS. IT IS VERY CALMING AND STRESS RELIEVING. ~ AGE 15

 

MRS. SLOSS IS CALM AND RELAXING. I THINK SHE IS PERFECT AND SHE DOESN’T NEED TO CHANGE OR IMPROVE ANYTHING! ~ AGE 8

 

MRS. SLOSS’S VOICE IS RELAXING AND SOOTHING. I DON’T THINK SHE COULD IMPROVE ANYWHERE, SHE IS VERY GOOD. ~ AGE 12

 

THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME GET THROUGH TROUBLES AT SCHOOL AND OCD. ~ AGE 14

 

EACH WEEK IN LEIGH’S CLASSES WE LEARNED SOMETHING VALUABLE AND NEW, BUT SHE ALSO REVISITED PREVIOUS LESSONS TO ENSURE WE DIDN’T FORGET THEM AND COULD CONTINUE TO USE THEM. IF WE HAD QUESTIONS OR CLARIFICATIONS THROUGHOUT, SHE TOOK THE TIME TO EXPLAIN THINGS IN FULL DETAIL. SHE DEMONSTRATED AND EXPLAINED THE ACTIVITIES CLEARLY: BECAUSE OF THE SIZE OF THE CLASS, IT FELT ONE-ON-ONE, BUT NOT IN A WAY THAT WAS PRESSURING OR SINGLED ANYONE OUT. GETTING A CHANCE TO DISCUSS THINGS THAT WERE ON OUR MIND AND RELATE EACH ACTIVITY TO THE SPECIFIC MOVEMENTS AND EXERCISES WE LEARNED, HELPED ME FEEL BETTER. THE CLASS FELT ENTIRELY REVOLVED AROUND OUR NEEDS AND WISHES; WE WERE GIVEN OPTIONS AND CHOICES THROUGHOUT, BUT IT WAS ALSO EXTREMELY STRUCTURED. BECAUSE OF THE RELAXING ATMOSPHERE, MY WEEK CERTAINLY STARTED OUT LESS STRESSFUL. I FELT EXTREMELY SAFE TO BE OPEN AND RELAXED IN THE CLASS ATMOSPHERE, I DIDN’T FEEL ANY DREAD ADMITTING TO THE FACT THAT THINGS WERE ON MY MIND AND I NEEDED HELP. HAVING A CONSISTENT TIME EACH WEEK DEVOTED TO CLEARING MY MIND WAS DEFINITELY REASSURING AND POSITIVE. ~ AGE 14

 

WHEN I WAS IN EARLY ADOLESCENCE I WAS DEALING WITH A NEW DIAGNOSIS OF BIPOLAR DISORDER. LEIGH WAS ONE OF THE PEOPLE WHO REALLY SUPPORTED ME ON MY JOURNEY. DOING YOGA WITH HER DURING THAT TIME REALLY HELPED ME BOTH MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY. I WAS LEARNING ABOUT MYSELF AND MY DEVELOPMENT AND HAVING A KIND AND SUPPORTIVE PERSON IN HER WAS VERY HELPFUL. ONE OF THE DAYS THAT I WAS AT MY LOWEST SHE ENCOURAGED ME.  AGE 15

I DON’T ALWAYS LIKE TO TALK ABOUT MY WORRIES AND YOGA HELPS ME WORK ON THEM WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT THEM.  THE BREATHING EXERCISES HELP ME CALM DOWN WHEN I NEED TO.  ~ AGE 9

~ FROM TEACHERS AND PARENTS ~

WHEN MY ELEVEN-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER STRUGGLED WITH ANXIETY, LEIGH TAUGHT HER CONCRETE MOVEMENTS AND ACTIONS THAT HELPED HER COPE WITH HER FEELINGS INDEPENDENTLY AND EMPOWERED HER TO STRENGTHEN THE MIND BODY CONNECTION.  ~ PARENT

 

LEIGH IS VERY APPROACHABLE AND HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR, WONDERFUL PERSONALITY, WELL SUITED FOR LEADING WORKSHOPS. EXCELLENT CLASS. ~ TEACHER

 

SHE MAKES CLASSES FUN AND IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ~TEACHER

 

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SERVING AS AN INSTRUCTOR IN OUR AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM. THE BOYS AND GIRLS ENJOYED YOGA FOR RELAXATION VERY MUCH. YOU PROVIDED A VERY POSITIVE AND SUPPORTIVE APPROACH THAT PROVED BENEFICIAL TO THE STUDENTS. ~ LINCOLN ST. SCHOOL, ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL

 

LEIGH WAS VERY INSIGHTFUL, AND EXPLAINED MANY OF THE YOGA POSES AND THE ATTRIBUTES THAT THEY PROVIDE FOR THE MIND AND THE BODY. SHE ALSO PROVIDED DIFFERENT LEVELS FOR STUDENTS TO CHALLENGE THEMSELVES. CMS 6 TH ~ 8 TH GRADE PE TEACHER

 

I SO APPRECIATED LEIGH COMING TO TEACH AT CMS. THE KIDS LOVED IT AND I AM HOPEFUL THAT YOU’LL BE ABLE TO JOIN US AGAIN NEXT YEAR.    ~ TEACHER

 

LEIGH’S CLASSES WERE VERY WELL STRUCTURED AND WELL RUN. THE KIDS LOVED IT AND LEIGH WAS ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE FOR SOME OF OUR STUDENTS WHO NEEDED EXTRA CONSIDERATION. ~ TEACHER

 

THESE YOGA SESSIONS HAVE HELPED MY DAUGHTER TREMENDOUSLY.  KIDS ARE A WORK IN PROGRESS AND IT IS NICE IF THEY CAN ENJOY THE JOURNEY.  MY DAUGHTER SPENT SO MUCH TIME WORRYING ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT SHE JUST BECAME ANGRY AND NOT A PLEASANT PERSON TO BE AROUND.  FAMILY TIME WAS AN UNPLEASANT PROSPECT.  THESE YOGA SESSIONS WITH LEIGH HAVE BECOME A “SAFE” TIME FOR HER TO LET ALL HER STRESSES FREE THROUGH THE PHYSICAL MOVEMENT OF YOGA. ~ PARENT

 

WE HIRED LEIGH SLOSS TO VISIT OUR SCHOOL AND INSTRUCT OUR STUDENTS IN COMMON MINDFULNESS AND YOGA TECHNIQUES.  WE WERE SO PLEASED WITH OUR TIME WITH HER AND THE STUDENTS GAINED SO MUCH FROM HER LESSONS. HER INSTRUCTION WAS VERY WELL RECEIVED FROM EVERY CLASS AND WAS PRESENTED AT THE APPROPRIATE AGE LEVEL. ADDITIONALLY, THE MATERIAL LEIGH PRESENTED WAS THE IDEAL MIX OF MOVEMENT AND MINDFUL PRACTICES. THE PROGRAM WAS EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR TO GET THE SCHOOL STARTED IN THESE PRACTICES. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER SERVICES!
