39 | Leila Dylla | 101 of Energy, Vibration and Transformation | The Amber Hawken Podcast

What does your vibe say about your life?

Ever wondered what yoga teachers, healers, lightworkers, coaches and therapists mean when they talk about the divine, source, energy or soul? With this wild trauma-informed coach, facilitator and yoga teacher, we unpack and navigate the invisible work of the divine. 

Leila is a trauma-informed empowerment coach and spiritual mentor, who lives an adventurous nomadic lifestyle travelling all over the world to inspire healing through creative movement, personal empowerment & deep spiritual connection. You can find Leila with her pup, Folly, teaching yoga classes, leading mindfulness workshops and hosting health and wellness retreats.

So I am in love with Leila, she is one of those humans. 

She’s experienced, embodied, honest, grounded, opened hearted, humble, wise, strong fierce and fucking hilarious. This is one of my longer podcasts. We did this live in Costa Rica on the second last day of a retreat she was running that I dropped into to say hi and connect with our mutual friends and her co-hosts, Jeremy Goldberg and Traver Boehm. 

Yes, life is delicious. Both Leila and I get lost in the flow of this topic and forget multiple times we are even on a podcast recording. We both share intimate experiences we’ve had unpacking some pretty messy times in our hearts and minds so you have real-life examples of how to do some of the work from birth to now that will help you lift and raise your vibration. 

In this episode, we unpack and demystify in detail, the sacred (and often misunderstood) philosophies of yoga, the soul, trauma, healing and practical techniques to build internal connection, energy and overall re-integration of ourselves as a whole being. 

I know, right? Fucking rad. 

Some of my fav points covered:

  • Discerning what it is to be a human and the connection between infinite and our human sense of “me”
  • The three aspects of the soul; “Sat Chit Ananda” (Satcitānanda, Satchidānanda, or Sat-cit-ānanda (Sanskrit: सच्चिदानन्द) ?
  • The connection between stimulus addiction, lack of presence and fulfilment and our ignorance to our true nature
  • Why we need to know who/what we really are in order to amplify joy, peace, love and all the good feels
  • Working with the mind, our mental mood and voice and getting right with the mind
  • How to practice self-healing and trauma release
  • Taking personal responsibility to the inventory of our decisions, macro actions, thoughts and samskaras
  • What you need in order to love self and of others
  • Strengthing discipline through our own “stoking of fire”
  • The shadow of self and spiritual growth and how to check-in if its playing out in your life
  • Why consistency and self-trust in your life for strength and freedom
  • How painful events in the past, unprocessed, can lead to feeling hollow, emptier and even affect self-esteem, happiness and wellbeing
  • How to cultivate our own inner energy to utilise, channel and work through something greater than ourselves. 
  • When Leila describes step by step how she re-integrated parts of her being that she had left behind throughout her life and overcome multiple different fears,  traumas and insecurities
  • Taking your practices from about “me” to about “we” in order to find courage, discipline and 
  • The most simple tool for making decisions that will either fill you or drain you


Before making any decision, especially tough ones, place your hand on your heart and take five deep breaths first.
