In 2005 she found her way to the Sivananda Ashram in Neyyar Dam, India, where she discovered a steady practice that allowed her flighty spirit to settle.

"Meditation into the New Year - Perfect!"

Space for everything: being with the other participants staying on my own, good balance between programme and free time.

The love, presence and ease that was spread first by Lila and Swami Ambika and that spilled over to everybody.

"Delightful new year, feel fully reset and recharged."

The mediation and ritrals were amazing, and brought up some surprising feeling from deep inside.

Loves the yoga practice and the food from the community was just out of this world, I’ve never eaten so much.

"Eden Rise"

This was my first ever retreat, and I'm also fairly new to yoga so had no idea what to expect. Let's just say I'm hooked and will definitely be returning!!! The venue was beautiful and everyone was so warm and welcoming to me. Lila our instructor was incredible, so warm and patient and there was no pressure. Also Justines Lomi massage was the best massage I've ever had!!! So if you are hesitant about booking a retreat, please don't wait I'm sure you will love every minute as much as I did.

A belated but very heartfelt thank you for a really special, joyful and rejuvenating weekend at Braziers Park. I feel so grateful for the chance to have been there :o) You are both gifted teachers and I really feel like you have lit a spark in me to learn more about yoga and commit to developing my own practice. I started looking up longer courses and retreats as soon as I got home!

Dear Lila, thanks a lot for all that you gave or transmitted during this month. You are really an extraordinary teacher, an expert in this cosmic play between patience and strictness, warmth and distance. I am very glad that it was you giving new life to these old and great teachings.... Thanks for your teachings and presence!
