Leila fell in love with Cirque du Soleil while watching a show at a very young age. From that moment on she started to dance and create theater-plays herself. After high school she attended the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht. Leila was longing to work with the body and soul. ‘Do yoga!’, someone said to her in a bar. To give it a try, she started watching yoga-video’s on YouTube. Since then yoga found a way into her daily life. After art academy Leila went traveling and completed a teacher training at the Vinyasa Yoga Academy in Rishikesh. Nowadays she combines yoga, writing, theater and performing. With yoga as her all-time-base. Leila believes every yoga-practice is different, like every experience and every moment in life is different.
