Health & well being developed from the merging of life-passions: a passion for working with people, the practice of healing modalities, and a love for bringing a sense of balance and wellness into peoples lives.
LILA pronounced Leela and sometimes spelt that way too, derives from the Sanskrit language. Lila is a way of describing all reality, including the cosmos, as the outcome of creative play by the divine absolute (Brahman). The deep spiritual concept of everything, life and all, being the play, the game, the dance, the pleasurable creation of the infinite, mysterious, divine source.

Nicole Angelika Panzer
Passionate about working with people and instilling a sense of wellbeing and balance into ones life through the various modalities she has on offer.
Always combining in her practice a perfect balance of body, mind, soul feeling and sensing just what the body needs.
One of her passions also lies in working with one of our most intricate parts of our being, the Spine. It acts as a messenger from our brain to the rest of our body, delivering messages through our nerves and meridians keeping our body healthy and functioning.
An imbalance in our spine or skeletal system can be caused by certain injuries, accidents, birth or illnesses, blocking the pathways where our meridians & nerves run through or branch out of.
Malfunctioning of various organs and limbs can be attributed to this.
By gently easing the body’s skeletal system and spine back into place the organs & or limbs should be freed then gently the healing process begins.

- Body Alignment
- Spinal Flush

Private one on ones and Yoga therapy classes offered too
Poses – In yoga the body is always treated with care and respect. Yoga poses improve circulation, stimulate the glands, tone and lengthen the muscles and massage the internal organs.
Breathing – Numerous breathing techniques are taught and used by yoga students. Regulating the breath improves lung function, increases oxygen intake, calms and focuses the mind, and reduces impurities within the system.
Relaxation and Meditation – Having a mindful practice is key in yoga. Focusing on your intention and breathing during physical exercise, using mediation and relaxation techniques and becoming aware of how and what you feel all develop awareness and relieve stress, creating greater harmony within yourself and your environment.
Yoga can be practised by anyone – regardless of physical ability or age – as long as there is a union among the elements of mind body & soul.
Yoga is not a religion nor is it simply an exercise regime. It helps bring all aspects of your life to their full potential so that you have a healthy body and mind and a more fulfilling life.
Yoga Therapy / Remedial Yoga – After an introduction class and full assessment of the clients needs Yoga classes are sequenced accordingly to assist the client in brining their mind, body & soul back to a state of balance or as close to that as possible.
Private one on one’s – for clients who prefer the personal attention and who are not wanting to be part of a group class. Quite similar to the description above, once having met with the client one can establish what the clients needs and wants are and what they are hoping to gain from their Yoga practice and therefore sequence their classes accordingly.
Private – Pre and Post Natal Yoga – Pre and Post Natal Yoga provides an opportunity for pregnant women to develop greater vitality and a awareness of their body (that is now home for two). It also assists in deepening their relationships with their babies. Gentle postures, breath work, sound and chant work and meditation are learned to cultivate flexibility, calm and confidence in preparation for labour and childbirth. Women are empowered to enhance their ability to access greater relaxation, comfort, and enjoyment. Calm and flexibility ease the birthing process, thus reducing pain and increasing the joy during this special time. With Pregnancy Yoga, women prepare for as active, normal and natural a birth as possible.
Private – Birthing Preparation for Couples – Birthing preparation for couples provides couples with an opportunity to enhance awareness of and confidence in pregnancy, labour and birth. Through discussion, gentle postures, breath-work, sound work, meditation and basic massage, couples cultivate greater relaxation, understanding and enjoyment for childbearing. Couples practise postures together that are both beneficial and enjoyable during pregnancy and labour. As a result partners feel more connected to the unborn baby. The presence and encouragement of a woman’s partner is a powerful aid to labour and delivery.

Body Alignment Treatment
The Body Alignment Treatment comes from the merging of various modalities studied, such as:
- Yoga Therapy
- Dorn & Breuss Treatment (skeletal alignment)
- Trigger point Therapy (muscular alignment)
The route cause of many ailments can often be determined on the health and wellbeing of our Spine. The Spine is the essence of our being and connects our brain to the rest of our body, it connects us energetically, physically, emotionally as well as spiritually.
When each of the Spine’s vertebra from our Coccyx to our Atlas is in alignment or as much in alignment as possible, the body is able to function to its full capacity.
If one Vertebrae were to be out of place due to a number of possible reasons eg. accident, injury, incorrect posture, stress or strain on the body, a blockage is caused in that area of the spine and therefore causeing the vertebrae to be out of line.
The affected Vertebra hereby inform us of the particular nerve and meridian lines that are effected, these help to show the related organs and/or areas of the body where ailments may have developed.
In addition to the Spine, the positioning of the Hips/ Pelvis is a big contributer to the bodies alignment too. The Hips / Pelvis could be out of place due to the way one was born, incorrect seating, pregnancy, accidents etc. When the Hips / Pelvis is out of alignment, the Spine will compensate in order for our eye-sight to be as straight as possible. This is known to have caused problems such as Scoliosis to the spine, shoulders being out of alignment or one leg being longer than the other.
It has also been found that Knee problems can stem from the Pelvis being out of alignment, or visa versa when the muscles in the pelvic and hip region become too tight, the pelvis and hip compensate for the knee’s to function correctly.
Tight muscles are also contributers to a misaligned skeletal system. Due to repetitive movements certain muscles can develop more than others, putting strain onto other areas of the body.
A certified Dorn & Breuss Practitioner and Trigger point Therapist, Nicole has been practicing and treating clients assisting them with their body alignment since 2013.
Having practiced Yoga for the past 18 years, Nicole is a certified Yoga teacher and holds classes for Pre & Post Natal Yoga, Children & Teenage Yoga as well as Remedial and One on One Yoga sessions desisgend to clients specific needs.

“Calming, reassured, felt parts of spine come alive under mid back, safe, lope, some of tension gone, really felt where problem was for first time.”
“Posture info & advice very useful, spinal flush – pressure points really released so deeply into spaces I was not aware of before. A lot of weight left me . Very invigorating, feel recharged. Thank you & Blessings”
“Ancestors … Mother, grandmother…. what came before… what is now… and where we are going to”
“Trust guidance, confidence to speak my truth. Neck & shoulder pain I ignored resurfaced, slight headache, dry throat & blocked nose… really professional & relaxing … enjoyed it – Thank you <3 “
