Lila has been a certified Bodyworker, Healing Touch and Reiki practitioner since 1994, and her most recent passion since 2010 is teaching clients to become their own Handsoff Bodyworker®. Using MELT Method simple self-treatment techniques, Lila’s classes help clients gain confidence and tools to get out and stay out of chronic pain.

Lila began teaching yoga in 1993, and holds teaching certificates from various internationally known yoga instructors including Sri Swami Satchidananda, Rama Jyoti Vernon, and Rodney Yee. Integrating a sensation of somatic freedom and connection to breath as part of asana practice are two of Lila’s talents.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
