Discover Your Light
Layla's Yoga journey began in the early 90's and continues to be an integral and
ever evolving aspect of her life. From the moment Layla found Yoga it appealed
to her at the deepest level, she knew this would become an important aspect and
influence in her life. Layla Completed her teacher training of Hatha Yoga in the
Anusara style in 2018 as an Anusara "Elements" teacher and has been teaching
ever since. Layla continues to grow her practice and has recently, as of May 2023
achieved her "Inspired" level certification. Yoga begins with an intention to dive
deep into oneself, it is an invitation to seek your highest good. Layla is deeply
passionate about sharing these teachings with you.
Anusara Hatha Yoga
is a fun and enlightening way to deepen your yoga practice. Yoga is
practiced and experienced using the 5 Universal Principals of alignment, they are
the foundation of the methodology as set out by, The Anusara School of Hatha
Flow, highlighting alignment and heart opening postures to re-connect with one's
innermost self. Using these principals, the power and wisdom of the asanas come
alive in the practitioner's experience. Anusara - from the Sanskrit term, meaning
to be "in the flow of grace", is an unfolding from your heart of the beauty that lies
within. Anusara yoga can be a physically challenging practice, and is appropriate
for all levels, offering physical, emotional, and spiritual growth.
DISCOVER YOUR LIGHT
A retreat to discover, integrate and manifest your new light
We are light. Sometimes our light shines brightly and sometimes it is dim and even comes with a darkness that can almost extinguish it. We have spent an intense astrological year, working with our shadows, discovering wounds and changing old patterns, now say yes to life! Sometimes you just need to do what you haven't done before, something different, get out of your routine, get out of your comfort zone, meet new people, visit unknown places and allow yourself to re-activate the spark within you. That spark that lights the flame of life within your heart, only then can you manifest your new light.
