 Lila is a phenomenally gracious and skilled host and teacher.  She attracts a group of loving, conscious people to her retreats, which creates a sense of community within hours of arrival.  Her teaching style is inspiring, as she has the ability to lead the group in challenging and invigorating movement while also ensuring individual attention and adaptations to anyone in need. Lila has created a sanctuary of movement, introspection, and inspiration at Mar de Jade.
