Yoga as Medicine for People + Planet

Yoga Philosophy + Sacred Ecology

A Life of Service

Līlā (Leela) Lolling is a classically trained yoga instructor, yoga therapist, environmentalist, entrepreneur, and author of Walking the Ancient Path of Yoga.

She leads embodied-learning experiences that transform your relationship with self, reconnects you to your Earth Mother, and highlights your crucial role in personal and planetary healing.

For over two decades, Lila's eco yoga programs, retreats, and trainings have educated and inspired thousands of yoga instructors and practitioners around the world. Her curriculums are deeply rooted in the classical yoga philosophy, science, sacred ecology, and living a climate positive lifestyle.

For thousands of years, yoga has been a medicine for the times, today is no different. The various facets of yoga can address the multitude, and magnitude, of the crises we face as a global family.


Empowered actions that lead to inner peace

As we witness the many crises confronting us, it's common to feel overwhelmed, hopeless, or even begin grieving what we are losing.


Many of us are also sensing a hopeful call to act in a way that supports and uplifts the whole, moving past the grief and fear.

Yoga Philosophy and yogic scriptures mentioned this time where the planet would endure great suffering. They also shared wisdoms that would alleviate the suffering through practical, spiritual practices.


Today with easier access to these teachings and to a community of others who feel similar, you too can embark on a journey of change.


By adopting an eco yoga lifestyle, taking action, and joining a community - you begin to mend your heart, feel a sense of belonging, and find purpose in your life.


Plus, you'll become an immune cell in the body of life, being a source of medicine and love our world so desperately needs.
