Leila Sadeghee is a healer, yoga teacher, mentor, and therapeutic bodyworker with nearly 15 years experience in guiding people to physical, mental, and emotional freedom.
Yoga with Leila combines lightness of heart with vibrant intelligence in ways that keep opening doors for her students. Empowered by 17 years of her own yoga practice, 14 years of practicing therapeutic work in the body, and a lifelong freewheeling sense of fun, Leila has developed a straight-forward and uplifting style of teaching that supports people in opening to their highest potential, both on and off the mat.
She shares very openly about the peaks and troughs of her own journey in a way that brings yoga to life, and reminds her students to stay anchored in their truth, their worth, and their honest-to-goodness needs. Inspiration and insight about life is woven seamlessly into a movement practice that is challenging. Students of all levels are supported in a practice designed to strengthen and stabilise the weaker places, and to release those places that tend to get locked up. Having worked on more than a thousand bodies ”“ she is always ready to offer nuanced cues and advice to help stabilise the hyper-mobile student, and help the stiffer student stretch out. Not everyone’s body is the same, and each person needs special support to get the most out of practice, in private lessons as well as the drop-in yoga class.
Leila is co-creator of The Practices of Freedom and Wellbeing Immersion, a course that teaches clear and useful pose alignment, eating for optimal health, and how to allow your yoga practice to up-shift every aspect of your life. Leila offers magical retreats, workshops, and yoga teacher training.
Leila teaches at Indaba and The Life Centre.
