The best surfing lesson!!!
I had a one on one surfing lesson with Leah and it was an amazing experience. She's is a great teacher - very clear, patient and is a good judge of character. It was my first ever lesson, I'm petite female and I was frightened of pretty much everything - waves, surfboard, thinking I won't be able to hop on the board and so on..Leah helped me to overcome all those fears in the most graceful way. She makes learning so much fun and easy that I did hop on the board and rode the waves!
Book a lesson with her without thinking.
You'll be surfing before you know it. And you'll laugh a lot too.

Great surfing teacher and class
I did a personal surf lesson with Leah and it was exactly what I was looking for. She met me at my skill level and was not only a very good instructor but offers inspiration to keep pursuing waves. Highly recommened.

Awesome teacher!
If you are thinking about taking lessons - especially if you lean toward the spiritual side of your practice - she is the perfect person for you. Her understanding of the blend of surfing and yoga help her to help you get the most out of her sessions. She is friendly, conversational, funny, and will be your biggest fan when you surf your first wave. Other instructors kinda dialed it in, but she really gets to know you - even after one lesson.

Awesome experience, awesome teacher!
I had the opportunity to take a double Soul Surfer package with Leah during my trip to Sayulita and what a blast! The first day we began with the surfing and through Leah’s helpful guidance and instructions I managed to surf several waves (once I willed myself to stop stepping my front foot first!!). We followed up with a restorative yoga session that was just right for my mood afterwards. On the second day, we began with yoga and practiced pop-ups several times, ready for the second surf session! Again, Leah’s fantastic teaching helped me to ride most waves, feel confident and comfortable in the water. I come out of the experience proud of myself and looking forward to my next opportunity to surf! I highly recommend! Thanks Leah!

Corina! In your two lessons, you really got the best of both worlds! A mellow wave day, and a big wave day, and you gracefully warriored through both. Such a pleasure to hang with you, and share a small piece of your new life adventure :) Keep surfing girl, you got this. 🤙🏽

Absolutely amazing teacher and human
To echo all of her previous reviews, Leah was absolutely amazing! My sister and I did her yoga and surf class. She tailored the yoga to our experience level and our energy the morning we were there. It was an amazing, relaxing class. Then came the surf lesson which she informed me would be largely based off what we learned in yoga (I was skeptical of this). I was very nervous about this surf lesson as I had previously had a bad experience with a surf lesson (I found it difficult, confusing, and constantly swallowing water). She made it one of the best experiences. The yoga principles she taught in class actually REALLY helped me on the board! She was understanding but also pushed me outside of my comfort level. It was easily one of the most memorable experiences for our vacation and I felt like she was a good friend of ours! I never thought I'd say it, but I am excited to try surfing again.

Ladies! Thank you for your kind words, but more importantly, thank you for entrusting me with your fear and nervousness going into learning how to surf, this is the greatest gift to me. Why? Because I get to see the joy on the other side of it when you feel safe and comfortable in the water. You both did amazing (!!!), and your positive attitudes made my job easy-peasy ;) Hugs to you both wherever you are currently :)

Fantastic morning doing SUP Yoga
The hubster and I got the chance to introduce Sayulita to his sister and her husband this summer. One of the best things we did during their trip was morning SUP with Leah. Hubster's sister paddles SUP several times a week, and Leah STILL had some rad new tips to share that impressed her. Hint: Ask about how to make a tight turn. By the end of the session we all managed some version of a headstand on our respective paddleboards. C'mon, that's Facebook GOLD, right? :)

FACEBOOK GOLD! Jajaja! It was so great hosting you and the fam. We had a beautiful, calm day out on the water, and the vibes your group brought made my day. Thanks for the hang! (upside down, right side up and underwater;) )

Lovely Leah
I am so happy I happened upon Leah at Moon Shala in Sayulita. Leah's easy-going and friendly personality makes each yoga class with her a fun and unique experience. Her classes are the perfect mix of calming meditation and active flow. Her years of practice and teaching along with the intimate class size allow for the perfect guidance to deepen one's practice and try new asanas. In only the span of a few weeks, I was doing Standing Crow and Headstand... two postures I had yet to achieve. She also had us practicing things I had never heard of or tried... such as darkness practice. I have yet to take a surf lesson with her and definitely have some anxiety about getting out in the waves due to past trauma, but I feel confident with Leah as my instructor... I will be absolutely fine. Highly recommend!!! Oh yeah... and she's a kick ass poet too:-)

Leah is the best!!!
If you are lucky enough to experience Sayulita, Visit Leah!!! She offers Yoga and Surfing lessons and I can't say enough good things about this human. Honestly, when I told her I wanted to learn to surf, deep down, i was reluctant with fear of frustration. I spent the first couple days in Sayuita "studying" the various skill level of surfers at the beach. I was finally ready and took my first lesson. Leah was absolutely great! We started off with some fun and safety and soon got in the water. My first surf, I know i did well getting up on all the waves I approached and it was all in the way Leah teaches. Before the water and in the water she will teach you what to do in different situations. In the water she teaches you about the ocean and waves. As wonderful as it is to have her experience and knowledge, it doesn't compare to her personality and passion. Leah is very approachable, kind, and compassionate and it reflects in her teachings and sets her apart from the rest. Memories and experience I'll never forget, thank you!
