What Is The Love Of Movement?

The Love of Movement Method is a culmination of Lila Heller’s 20 years of studying mindbody practices which include: Pilates, Yoga, Breathwork, Applied Neurology combined with her experience of working with individual clients. When we move and breathe better, we feel better. 

The Love of Movement Method is for the beginner and more experienced mover. This method teaches you how to retrain your habitual ways of moving and being in the world. It is an eye opening method (literally) that uses the latest brain science along with mobility and mindful strength to improve confidence, posture, balance, a feeling of well-being and enthusiasm for life. The Love of Movement Method teaches that significant gains are possible at any age and ability through doable movement practices.

This method merges the physical, spiritual and brainy bits into a playful and accessible methodology.


"All the body all the time." 
Lila is passionate about education, movement and well being. Dance brought Lila into the wellness world and her fascination with learning more has kept her there. She is a well known movement coach in the Bay Area specializing in Pilates, Breathwork, Applied Neurology and Functional Movement.
Lila has originated The Love Of Movement Method that synthesizes these modalities. She has over twenty years of experience working with thousands of clients. Her method takes into account the unique nervous system of each person she works with. Among her many entrepreneurial passions she leads and facilitates transformational retreats. Her retreats are inclusive, heart based retreats where all are welcome.


Lila highly values continued education as the science of the human body & mind is continuing  to reveal new discoveries.
