  • Nikki Leaf

    Nikki has been teaching yoga since 1987. Her keen interest in Ayurveda led to her studies in which she gained an Advanced Diploma in Ayurveda. Nikki’s teaching style draws on the various yoga traditions she has studied over the years, but particularly on the Hatha / Iyengar methods with their emphasis on correct alignment, and the use of props to support in areas of restriction. She teaches from a strong therapeutic foundation, and takes into account the Ayurvedic body type, any imbalances, as well as any physical limitations.

  • Leah Albrecht

    Leah comes to Ayurveda from a nursing background. Her love of yoga and dedicated practice over many years led her to formal studies in yoga teacher training. Leah went on to complete a post graduate diploma in Acupuncture, and is also completing a post graduate in Marmapuncture. Leah is inspired by the daily practices of yoga, and the simple Ayurvedic routines, which have greatly enriched her own life and draws from her journey of infertility and involvement in IVF programs.

Your adventure in this India retreat starts in Central Delhi and the journey will take you to Rishikesh as well.

    "I would have no hesitation in recommending the Yogaveda India Retreat."


    "We found that the time in each place was just right , not too long in Delhi, enough shopping time in Rishikesh (a shopper’s Paradise) and then a wonderful 5/6 days in the mountain retreat."


    "This place, up high in the mountains, had clear air and clean water, tasty veg. grown on the property in rich brown fertile soil, this veg was used in our superb tasty meals. All the dairy products used were from the retreats own dairy herd."


    "Our accom. was comfortable, each little chalet had a verandah for us to sit out on and read, and our own electric kettle for chai making whenever we chose."


    "The yoga rooms and the massage room were especially beautiful, painted tastefully with plenty of props. We had yoga twice each day, with time in between to explore."


    "There were great walks to be taken, down, down, down to the Ganges below or up, up, up further into the mountains."


    "Nikki and Leah, experienced in this north India retreat, ran it like clockwork without any strain or stress, everything dovetailed into place, they were ably assisted by their ‘Man on the Ground’, who with local knowledge and expertise added the final touches, he was great on detail. It was all thoroughly enjoyable"

    "It has been seven years since I started seeing Leah, not long after the birth of my third child at the age of 38. I sought Ayurvedic treatments and consultations on diet and lifestyle due to long-term lack of energy and inflammation in my body. Since that time, Leah has become my primary health consultant."


    "Leah provides the space to discuss my health needs in a holistic way and supports me with the use of acupuncture, Ayurvedic body treatments, and support and knowledge with diet and herbs. It is both a preventative health measure and also a response to the physical ailments that come along – usually those associated with the stress of doing too much and not having enough good rest and nutritious food. There is definitely a correlation between taking care of myself by consulting with Leah and keeping out of the doctor’s office, where only the symptoms are treated."


    "Apart from the obvious practical support Leah offers, what I appreciate most of all is the journey she shares with me, support and knowledge, and the feeling I have some peace and nurturing in the mind, body spiritual journey. I know Leah to be a life-long scholar in holistic health and I feel the benefits of Leah’s commitment in healing practices."

    "I can’t say enough great things about Leah."


    "My experience with her has been the best thing I have done to assist in the pain management of my endometriosis. I have recommended her to friends and colleagues because I was so impressed with her gentle approach. She is available and approachable and her follow up care gives me peace of mind until my next visit."


    "The Katibasti is like a warm hug for your lower back and a MUST for anyone suffering from endo, heavy periods or uterus pain."

    "I have been having monthly treatments with Leah for a number of years now. I can not recommend it highly enough. I usually have a Snehana which is divine in itself and then I have one of the following treatments: Katibasti (lower back nurture) for my endometriosis which helps to reduce the cramping during ovulation and menstruation."


    "In this hot weather we have been doing Urobastis (Heart nurture) which are amazingly soothing for the nerves and emotions."


    "I also have Bashpaswedana (Steambox treatment) particularly nice in winter as it warms you through to the bone."


    "Go on and treat yourself!"
