Leela Francis

About Me: 

Creator of Vividly Woman Tools and Training. Leela Francis is intensely devoted to aiding women and the men in their lives, to personally flourish through her live presentations, special events, monthly community engagements and experiential tools and enhanced life skill trainings.

Leela was recently asked to share her inspiration; “I experienced the sudden and profound loss of my father at age 16 and turned to free and unapologetic release of dance to deal with my grief. Since that moment I am forever grateful for the profound healing one can discover through movement and dance. In my professional life now, I have transformed that young girl discovery to a place where I guide women home to their own bodies as a source of deep personal healing and restorative transformation.”
“When I was younger and so impressionable, I like so many women, struggled with weight issues, infertility, and poor body image. Once an adult, I discovered that I had been in pursuit of perfection, for years trying to cover up low self esteem and my lack of self worth. By "looking good" that meant to me that I was acceptable and worthy. My enriching journey back to wholeness and finding that place where I valued me just as I was, gave me the personal tools and real-life practices to rediscover my sensual, spiritual and innate creative power living within my body, so that now I can support that glorious, fulfilling pathway “home” for other women.”

An internationally acclaimed dance movement facilitator for more than twenty years, Leela Francis is an esteemed industry expert in the field of body consciousness, self actualization and soulful, personal healing work. Leela’s diverse studies, extensive trainings, holistic shamanic initiations and her own rich personal life experience, add depth, dimension and resounding credibility to her coaching with individuals and groups both in the US and abroad.
