Yoga teacher and spiritual activist

So who is Leela Miller?

Leela began teaching yoga in 1986 when she completed the Sivananda teacher training program. She later went on to study Ashtanga, Iyengar and Shadow yoga. Leela weaves the precision of Iyengar alignment, the energetics of Shadow Yoga and the commitment to practice into the spiritual fabric of Sivananda Yoga. With gratitude, Leela credits Danny Paradise, Shandor Remete and Alaric Newcombe for their teaching, generosity of spirit and influence in her spiritual life.

A subsequent diagnosis of glaucoma led Leela on a personal search for the underpinnings of health. Through her study of anatomy and physiology, and biodynamic craniosacral therapy under the guidance of Michael Kern, she began to understand and apply the healing power of dynamic stillness that underpins all movement, and ultimately life. This led her back to yoga, her Sivananda lineage and the study of Yoga Nidra as taught by Swami Satyananda.

Leela qualified as a HeartMath coach in January 2017. This technique helps the student self-regulate the nervous and cardiovascular systems and manage stress through traditional yogic practices of breath and intention measured by biofeedback software.

As well as teaching yoga privately and internationally, Leela has been a triyoga teacher since its inception and served as their Director of Yoga, in which capacity she set up, developed and taught on the triyoga teacher training program. She teaches on various teacher trainings and runs her own teacher trainings in Greece. She practices biodynamic craniosacral therapy in London specializing in people diagnosed as HIV+ and continues to control her glaucoma through of yoga and Ayurveda.
