Leela’s approach at her High Vibration Cleansing retreat is an amazing expression of love at work. Whether you’re a beginner at yoga or an advanced student, she will challenge you to cleanse body mind and spirit in unity.

I was amazed by how delicious the food experience was. Her lessons and treasure trove of knowledge gave me insight on food combining and showed me practical ways to honor my body.

As a novice to yoga, by the end of the week I was more flexible in body and agile in mind.

I’ve had several breakthroughs and now with my heart centre activated I look forward to receiving what is next. Your heart knows.

Follow it. Experience the High Vibration retreat with Leela!"

To be honest I’m the type of guy who would never eat vegetables and drink green juice for w eek.

But while attending Leela’s retreat I found that being raw and healthy can be extremely delicious and fun. Her food is amazing!!

The place was beautiful and serene, it is truly a paradise. The yoga and meditation was truly freeing.

So many wonderful activites as well you are never bored here, Even just laying in the hammock watching the waves and the pelicans is fantastic."
