Leila’s Personal Training Experience:

Leila is an expert in all aspects of Yoga and believes in putting into practise what she knows and continues to learn. Some of the areas she specialises in are:

  • Hatha Yoga– classical style of yoga focusing on poses (asanas) and breathing (pranayama), which has become known in the west as yoga. Typically involves tuning in with breath awareness, setting of intention, physical poses with verbal and physical adjustment/assists to ensure alignment which aids in energetic flow through the body, relaxation and/or meditation to end the class. A gentler practice, good for beginner and intermediate levels.
  • Yin Yoga – slow paced, passive style of yoga, focusing on stretching the deeper connective tissue (fascia, ligaments and tendons) rather than the muscles. Poses are held for between 1 and 10 minutes. Increases circulation in the joints and improves flexibility. Also assists with learning the basics of meditation and learning to let go. Good for athletes and those that need to relax.
  • Vinyasa Flow – stronger, faster style of yoga where each breath is linked to a movement. Poses flow from one to the next, often linked by a half sun salutation. This is more of a workout than other styles of yoga. It is recommended that new yoga students take a few slower paced classes to get a feel for poses before trying a vinyasa class.
  • Yin/Yang Flow – combination of vinyasa flow and yin yoga. Creates a beautifully balanced class.

For personal fitness training needs Leila specialises in (but is not limited to) relaxation, stress reduction, flexibility training, breathing, TRX, HIIT training, strength training, weight loss.
