I love Laila’s mix of yoga and qigong
I love Laila’s mix of yoga and qigong and mindfulness. I look forward to each class with its different focus depending on the season, or phase of the moon, and without exception, am not disappointed. Laila has a very positive energy which, even in these days of classes on zoom, makes it through the air waves

Laila’s classes are a balm to my body and soul
Laila’s classes are a balm to my body and soul. They are always so well planned, prepared and delivered in a lovely, soothing tone, that by the end of the class I feel fully relaxed and yet invigorated at the same time. Each class always feels different as she introduces a new dimension to the flow every time.

A soft deep intense journey in your body
A soft deep intense journey in your body.Laila brings you step by step towards completeness in such a clear way that you understand the process and the development you are going through With Laila you are not going through a routine of yoga exercises that you may also find in a book She has made the journey before for you, so that her teaching is based on a profound knowledge combined with her personal experience. How do you feel after? Rejuvenated, liberated, softened

Laila’s classes reflect her deep understanding of the movement
Laila's classes reflect her deep understanding of the movement and energy system within the body. Her classes have a fluid flow rather than practising static postures or sequences. I'm always left feeling deeply relaxed and peaceful at the end

The style of Laila’s yoga is a mixture of movement and flow
The style of Laila’s yoga is a mixture of movement and flow, Chi gong type movements combine with breathing and some more traditional yoga moves. Breath work forms a part of the practise too. I love this style of yoga and feel my body really benefits and whilst I feel every muscle is used and stretched I don’t feel it is over strenuous. Laila has an Aura about her and having done live classes with her I still get his feeling when doing the classes in zoom. I practise a few different types of yoga but Lailas yoga centres me and the fact she works with the full moon and seasons really resonates with my body.

Yoga with Laila is sweet and soft and at the same time dynamic and powerful!
Yoga with Laila is sweet and soft and at the same time dynamic and powerful! I feel Laila as a teacher is helping me to connect with my body and soul. The yoga she’s teaching is there to protect my body at the same time as it develops and opens in a soft way. Doing the downward facing dog at the end of a session of soft movements is very different from starting a class with it. Just try for yourself! And most of all Lailas classes are about presence.

Laila’s classes have a wonderful nurturing effect
Laila’s classes have a wonderful nurturing effect, with highly intuitive movements. Her style is far from the static pose-to-pose routines you often see. There is a fusion of styles expertly woven together, with hints of chi Kung/tai chi and somatic yoga. Here there is far more attention to the quality of movement or stillness, and timing the breathing with movement/stillness. The flow has a fluid dance-like quality, a gracefulness, sympathetic to each body’s needs and limitations, and Laila is expert at educating you as to the purpose of each pose, and what to avoid to stay safe in the pose. She also takes the time to really ground the class in the present, at the beginning, end and throughout, staying true to the spirit of yoga practice.

Laila’s yoga classes are a very special experience
Laila's yoga classes are a very special experience. All classes are themed and carefully prepared . She explains and demonstrates in a clear and thorough manner. Her classes are so releasing and nourishing. You inhabit your body for duration of class. Laila weaves and integrates her amazing wealth of yoga knowledge and experience in to her teaching. Her voice is calming and the softness and gentleness of her personality reflects in her teaching. You breathe at ease during the class and at end of class the body and mind is totally at ease . The gift of all gifts.

I Love Laila’s classes
I Love Laila’s classes - they are at the same time gentle and invigorating. Laila gives space and encouragement to feel what my body is doing - to come home into my body and let it be inhabited by me. Thus bringing my ever-busy brain back into balance with me as a whole - time and time again! Thank you. ~ Elisabeth

Lailas classes really free me up physically
Lailas classes really free me up physically. I can feel very tight these days but after taking one of her classes my body feels light and free flowing again. I also feel more confident, held and supported. The exercises are gentle yet powerful.
