Leila Braithwaite


French born I was introduced to yoga when I moved to London, about 20 years ago.

Living in London was a very stressful time with a lot of pressure “living the rat race” -Practicing yoga there gave me peace, helped me to improve my flexibility, the quality of my sleep and much more.This was the beginning of a life changing journey.

Since London, I have continued my yoga practice over the years and yoga has helped me juggling demanding jobs, family life, and other difficult times I went through. Yoga continues to give me strength, balance and focus.

I qualified as a yoga teacher in 2012 with Steve Avian at Shamayoga School and have been teaching yoga ever since.
I continue my learning journey, I have been to various yoga retreats in France, and learnt various styles of yoga, including breathing practices from Max Strom. Yoga continues to help me in my everyday life, balancing work, being a mum and maintaining strong relationships with my loved ones.

"Anyone can practice. Young man can practice. Old man can practice. Very old man can practice. Man who is sick, he can practice. Man who doesn't have strength can practice. Except lazy people; lazy people can't practice Ashtanga yoga."
- Sri Pattabhi Jois
