About the Teacher
Leila’s yogic journey began in 2000 at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA under spiritual head Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, PhD, the successor to Swami Rama, where she lived, worked, and studied there for 2 months. She has since been certified 200 hours in Power Vinyasa Flow from Yoga to the People and 500 hours in Bhakti Flow from Rusty Wells at Urban Flow, in San Francisco.
Leila teaches all around the San Francisco Bay Area and has had the privilege of teaching (or currently teaches at), GLOW Yoga & Wellness, Yoga to the People, Urban Flow, Flying Yoga, International Orange, Zazen, Yoga Tree, Academy of Art University, Lululemon, Craigslist, Tishman Speyer, and privately. She has made Yoga for Artist videos for Academy of Art University, which can be found on her website. She has assisted Rusty Wells, and is also a lead assistant to Yoga Teacher and Author Darren Main, for a weekly donation-based yoga class held at iconic Grace Cathedral. She has had the honor of leading Sun Salutations for Rise Yoga for Youth´s First annual Yogathon Fundraiser, a non-profit organization that brings yoga into high schools for underserved teens, and Leila is also the creator of SING PRAY LOVE, a monthly Kirtan event she leads, sharing the joy of Bhakti Yoga.
Leila’s yoga is an empowering physical, mental, and spiritual practice. Her Vinyasa Flow class is fun-filled, joyful, challenging, and from the heart. It is designed to peel away layers of what is covering the truth inside, so that practitioners leave feeling more connected, more happy, more alive, and more fully aligned with their life’s purpose. Her classes flow naturally from the heart, and are very grounded in alignment, cultivating a trust of the natural intelligence of the body and breath. She weaves yogic philosophy in and out of the asana practice, so that yoga can be taken off the mat and into daily life. She believes that yoga is the most effective practice for self-discovery, love, compassion, acceptance, health, happiness, and peace. More about Leila can be found at: www.leilaswenson.com
