leila began practising yoga in the early eighties and teaching in the early nineties.
accredited to teach by the british wheel of yoga, leila also completed an additional four year yoga teaching and therapy training with cYs. she studied with paul harvey for over 20 years and continues to feel greatly indebted to him for his teaching.
having been inspired by the teachings of vanda scaravelli, leila is now exploring yoga with sandra sabatini and bill wood. the practice is intuitive, breath focussed, poetic and loose. these refreshing ideas enhance an ongoing enchantment with yoga.
leila draws on her interest in the natural world, gardening, poetry and dance to inspire her practice and is currently studying for a degree with the open university. leila is not teaching yoga at the moment, as she takes time for writing and study.
“The times when I have genuinely put my whole self into something the results have surprised even me.”
