Achieved through activities such as teaching yoga, meditation, healthy culinary classes and various additional workshops, each Happy Healthy Ila retreat is situated in exclusive locations surrounded by the beauty of nature in intimate spaces of tree houses, villages or floating wood cabins. Each a destination beholding unique characteristic charms, the key purpose is to help members heighten achievements of health and happiness independently, every day. Each retreat is based on an intense yoga practise and meditation, supported by different alternative healing techniques such as forest bath Shirin-Yoku, Ayurvedic treatments, dancing therapy, essential oils, auto-massage, Pnl and Personal coaching workshops. Behind Happy Healthy Ila is Ilaria who is a passionate yoga and dance teacher, holding grace, elegance and gratitude as the key pillars of her philosophy. Beginning her career in a corporate environment within the luxury fashion industry, Ilaria realised there was another path for her to follow so she quit her job to embark on a new journey. Renown for her love for life and helping people feel better, Ilaria began her initial journey volunteering in a Buddhist Monastery in Ladakh, in the Himalayas teaching English to little monks, practising ancient meditation techniques every sunset and sunrise in bursts of joy. Time away from distressing distractions, surrounded in simplicity allowed Ilaria to find solitude, inspiring her to continue her practise of yoga and meditation whilst travelling across the world, adopting core elements into the development of her personal methods of practise. After a month in South India studying herbal medicine in an Ayurvedic hospital, Ilaria visited an ashram for her Hatha Yoga Teaching diploma before settling in Paris in 2013, establishing her project, Happy Healthy Ila. Ilaria’s classes are infused with care, humour, self-liberation and gratitude. Following the principles of Hoponopono, Ilaria’s classes awakens the values to always be 1) thankful, 2) apologetic, 3) forgiving and 4) loving with others but especially with yourself.
