Laila Hachem

Yoga has been a big part of my life for the past 18 years. My style of teaching is based in Hatha yoga. The word HATHA beautifully translates as SUN and MOON which equates to the balance of opposites To stretch and strengthen. I like to move with the breath and feel empowered from the pure presence of this union. I lead a vinyasa flow at a steady pace. As a former dancer my teaching is inspired by fluidity and flow. I am a hands on teacher and like to guide students with gentle hands on adjustments to further inspire a deepening into each pose. I feel grounded and humbled to be walking this path as a yoga teacher.

I am captivated by yoga's low impact yet high-strength workout. I am thrilled I can get this kind of a workout just by lying on my belly activating arms and legs.  

Yoga looks after your body, inside and out. Twists, inversions and back bends nourish your internal organs, which in turn promotes healthy functioning; digestion and elimination. 

It’s important to remember that we all have very different bodies and there may be some poses you may never be able to do. It has nothing to do with your level of fitness but the size and shape of your bones. We are all very individual and special. Even as we approach our senior years, we can still practice yoga within our own physical limits. 

The thing I love most about yoga is how it has taught me to be present. To really taste the food you eat, to feel the water on your skin when you shower, to hear your breath and feel your body yield to your mat when you are practicing yoga.

I look forward to doing yoga with you. 

Aspiration: Try each day to be the best you can.
