Born and raised in a small town in northern California, Leila decided at a very young age she was going to see the world. At that very same age she began to dance and perform at a local ballet school, and small theater. To this day not much has changed; she has now been dancing professionally for over ten years, touring and performing across the states as well as the central and eastern European countries. With such a rigorous schedule, Leila’s body was taking the toll, and she was in desperate need of a routine to not only keep her toned, but also maintain her flexibility, and keep her safe from injury. In 2004, Pilates became this exercise, and she has been practicing ever since. Coming from a dance background, she has always been attracted to the Classical style of Pilates, and since her relocation to Los Angeles, enrolled and completed the Pilates Technique Certification Program, taught by Jill Cassady. Leila brings a certain warmth and understanding of the rainbow of different body types, and their very individual needs. Being a personable teacher, her priorities are to make every client feel comfortable and safe, while keeping him or her motivated, and confident in their bodies capabilities. She truly loves what she does, and it shows.
