Ayurveda magic

Leigh never ceases to amaze me with her insights. I appreciate what she does so much! Can't recommend enough!

I have been going to Leigh for over a decade now. I never give her more than minimal direction, and I always love what I leave with!!! She gets to know you as a human being, understanding what care level you need in your daily rituals, and delivers every time!! I will never go to anyone else:)

Leigh is an artist. I drive 3 hours to have my hair cut. We have world changing conversations, and I'm never ready to leave.

Yoga + Ayurveda

Starting a new practice can be intimidating but Leigh has helped make it feel like the place where I am suppose to be since Day 1. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience that she is willing to share. She is an open book. Talking to her is easy and it feels like you are talking to an old friend. Leigh doesn't just give you information, she provides insight and strategies to bridge the gap between theory and making all aspects of the practice a part of your life. She is the best!

What can she not do?!

Leigh is a renaissance woman! She is a gifted and insightful yoga teacher, she provides easy and effective Ayurvedic consultation, and does ridiculously beautiful hair work. In every interaction I have with Leigh, I always leave feeling energetic and empowered with concrete ways to navigate my life in a healthier and more balanced way. Just love, love, love working with her.

Love my hair!

Leigh is such a great listener when it comes to hair. She really took time to understand my vision and also my hair type. I am thrilled with the result and psyched to be stylin' for the holiday season ahead. Thanks Leigh!

Lovely yoga lesson as always

Brinson Leigh and I had a very fruitful session. We went through all the movements I have learned and she tweaked some and challenged me with others or added some movements in between. It all went seamlessly, even though I was tired, but this session revived me. Afterwards we talked in length about soothing food in difficult periods in one's life, and I left there feeling so much happier with life than when I arrived.

Yoga student

I solicited Leigh's help/opinion regarding some aspects of my daily yoga practice. She was able to distinguish a couple of areas that could use some gentle tweaking, making suggestions to slightly alter a few habitual patterns. After one week, these changes are helping me feel more stable and properly aligned in my practice. The result is strength and stability in my lower back and more awareness in my feel and legs. I will definitely book another private session in a few weeks.

Lovely as always!

Beautiful, flattering cuts for myself and my 6 year old daughter's hair. She keeps our hair looking trim and healthy. We love Leigh!

Heaven on earth!

I have been going to Leigh for several years. She has provided me with one on one yoga instruction, counseled me in Ayurvedic and helped my muscles with bodywork to relieve pain and tension. She is a talented and professional holistic practitioner.

Leigh has fantastic talent and a gentle spirit that made getting my hair cut a very enjoyable experience. I cannot be more happy to have spent a wonderful block of time with her and coming out with a good cut!

Phenomenal Instruction

Leigh is by far the best yoga instructor I've ever had. She is gentle, highly encouraging, extremely present, very articulate, and highly knowledgable. I encourage anyone with an interest in yoga or general wellness to hire Brinson Leigh Kresge. You won't regret it.

Lovely yoga lesson

Dear Brinson Leigh, It was wonderful to see Leigh again and we had a wonderful lesson going through all the various ashtanga movements and perfecting them. She is so good in just adjusting and tweeking my positions and she is a great teacher.

- Diana

Positive and encouraging experience

My first Ayurveda session with Leigh was a very positive experience. I felt very encouraged by her presence and her caring nature during our session. She comes across as very invested in the well being of her client/patient. I look forward to my appointments with her, and plan on continuing under her guidance.

- Sarah H

Wonderful haircut

Leigh is such a lovely person and always gives me such a wonderful haircut. I'm so lucky someone told me about her.

- Bay

Amazing teacher and mentor

I truly have only wonderful things to say about my sessions with Leigh! She is an incredibly easy person with whom to converse, and she has a way of putting her students and clients at ease. I feel you could ask her anything, and she would dig for an answer if she did not already have it. She is open-minded, intelligent, and thoughtful. Her vested interest in her students and clients comes across clearly. Her rates are very reasonable, and she is worth every penny and more. Go see her!

- Sarah

Wonderful Yoga!

I always have wonderful sessions with Brinson, she is so very thoughtful and takes such care in explaining all the movements to me. I love working with her,

Best haircut in Richmond

I have searched Richmond for 17 years to find someone that could do something with my hair and finely found Leigh. Can't recommend her enough. I love our conversations too.

Bay S

Highly recommend!

Leigh's spirit and energy are always uplifting, but in her capacity as a teacher and ayurvedic consultant I have been truly blown away. She is understanding, kind, empathetic, and encouraging. She knows exactly how and when to push you and when to give you breathing room. I highly recommend her consulting to anyone who is interested. As a yoga teacher she is also incredibly gifted. Anyone who practices with her will say the same: her presence is always a positive addition to my practice.

- Andrea

Wonderful as always

I've been coming to get my hair cut by Leigh for over 15 years. I even make arrangements when I'm in town to see her now that I no longer live in the area. She does truly fantastic work, understands problem hair (mine is fine and curly) and does everything from classic cuts to more daring styles and color. I have never had an "off" haircut and I'm truly lucky that she was my only stylist in high school so I have no hairstyle regrets in my future.

Great cut

I had my first haircut from Leigh on Monday. My hair is a challenge (a lot of it and cow licks galore) and she did a beautiful job. It was better than a face lift!

Leigh rocks!

Beautiful, creative cuts for my little girl's hair, and excellent maintenance of mine. Professional and accomplished. Highly recommended.

ayurveda with brinson leigh

I love my appointments with Leigh! she is so easy to talk to and very knowledgeable with her recommendations that are always very personalized. The experience she brings to the appointments helps immensely. I have had 3 consults so far and would definitely recommend her to others.

- Kim C


My hair turned out amazing and it was so easy to talk to her about what I wanted and I never felt steamrolled like I normally do when I'm getting my hair cut at other places. I highly recommend her and will absolutely be a return customer.

- Grace


Amazing color!

Leigh does such an amazing job with fun hair color. I'm a natural redhead, and she amps it up to 11 every time I come see her!




Leigh is such an amazing stylist. She gave me the best haircutt I've ever had and color. So glad I found her, true master of her craft plus its just great being in her awesome presence.

Chris V


This is not your average is so much better. Leigh is an exceptional therapist on many levels. Her knowledge of anatomy and body mechanics along with effective stretching and soothing oils make for a truly restorative and healing experience. I will definitely be back!
