Visiting Sayulita either as a solo traveler or with a group is definitely safe, although you should always exercise common sense and vigilance while traveling.

Do I need a visa to travel to Mexico?

Depending on what passport you hold, most countries are visa exempt for a free 180-day entry. Select countries need to apply for a visa in advance.

Not only is Leah a fantastically gifted teacher, she is a beautiful person too. Leah was one of the teachers on my 200hr YTT and her knowledge, passion and patience are utterly inspiring. If you can study in any way with Leah, do it, you won't regret it!

Leah has developed such an amazing yoga teacher training. In a short amount of time we delved deeply into the history of yoga, teaching methodologies and sequencing (and many more). I now feel ready and equipped to teach what I love! Her stunning leadership skills also helped to set a warm and nourishing environment for all of us students to flourish in unison and build strong life long connections with each other. This time has been a pivotal moment in my life and I’m forever grateful. Don’t get me wrong, we all had to WORK our minds, our bodies and our spirits. We were tested and challenged but I wouldn’t have it any other way. In a market so saturated of teacher trainings, just stop at Leah and let her take you on this beautiful journey to transition from student to teacher.

Leah was one of the the teachers on my 200 hour YTT, and I learned so much from her. Leah’s teaching style is a combination of strength and grace, of high technicality and beautiful spirituality. Leah shares her knowledge selflessly and with great kindness...I feel so grateful to have met her, and would recommend her classes and trainings 100%!

Leah is a complete force of total goodness and she has a massive presence. Her classes flow with consummate ease and, as a new yoga teacher myself, I now appreciate that her cuing is super world class. Never once did I find myself wondering what to do with my body. No class was ever the same. She always taught who was in the room and gave us all the confidence to attempt more difficult postures through her skill and compassion. Whilst she is light-hearted, there is a beautiful spirituality underlining her purpose on the mat. It makes you think on a deeper level when you leave the mat and return to “life.” Every class is a journey. World class teacher, world class person. I have yet to come across a better teacher on many levels.

Leah was an incredible teacher who guided and held space for 24 different and diverse students. At the start of the course I was unable to imagine a future as a teacher; by the end of the course, we were all confidently teaching our peers and I am now planning my own yoga classes. INCREDIBLE!
