About Mind Full Lee

MEET LEELA

 

Leela is a Mindfulness & Movement Coach certified in Stress Management Yoga, Chair Yoga, Integral Hatha Yoga and Grief Movement. She is also currently undertaking Contemplative End Of Life Care training to become a Death Doula.

 

Leela specializes in four main areas: 

  • Self-Care Planning, Execution & Maintenance

  • Grief Movement

  • Yoga for Stress Management 

  • Mindfulness for Depression & Anxiety

Identifying as she/her, Leela is a multi-racial woman originally from Toronto, Ontario currently living in beautiful Vancouver, BC, Canada. Her Sanskrit name (Leela- given to her at birth) is an homage to the spiritual path both of her parents took before she was born. Leela grew up exposed to many different spiritual avenues and religions, giving her a well-rounded understanding early on. Prominently, an Ashram called Yogaville located in Virginia, USA became like a second home for her when she was growing up. It's only natural that Leela later returned to Yogaville as an adult to obtain both her 200hr Integral Hatha Yoga TT and her 90hr Stress Management Yoga Teacher Training Certifications.

Philanthropy is an important part of Leela's life. Some of her past work has included offering weekly Chair Yoga & Stress Management classes at the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre, a low-barrier drop-in centre and an emergency night shelter in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver from 2019-2020 (until the Pandemic shut down the programs). Leela also offered volunteer Integral Hatha Yoga classes at Karma Teachers Centre for Yoga and Meditation, Canada's first non-profit yoga studio, from 2017-2018.

 

She now incorporates her years of training, philanthropy work and teaching experience into every single session. She also credits the invaluable lessons learned from hitting her own rock bottom, which she now uses to better understand and work with those not yet in their full power.
