Leyla Salvadé is a Light Coach; Spiritual Health Practitioner and Intuitive Healer. She is also a certified Health Coach, a certified HeartMath Trainer, and spent time learning and practicing mindfulness and meditation at a Zen Buddhist Monastery led by Thich Nhat Hanh. She left a career in fashion to pursue her passion and founded Standing Light - a LightStyle™ brand, which empowers individuals to lead a holistic life; integrating mindfulness, meditation, conscious daily practices, heart intelligence, and environmental awareness. She's also the founder of Heart To Table™, a transformative dinner experience that's traveling the world uniting people from all walks of life onto one table, sharing in a heart-centered adventure together. Leyla was born in Switzerland, raised with a melange of six different languages and cultures under one roof, and has lived in Phoenix, London, Los Angeles, and New York City. Her life path molded her into the multi-faceted soul that she is today, which has led her to the understanding that we are all connected - we are ONE.
Growing up in the Swiss forests, Leyla has always been innately in harmony with nature. Translating nature's beauty through art, led her to explore this pursuit by studying fashion and graduating from Central Saint Martin's School of Art and Design. Her courage to connect and work from her heart, entrusted her to become one of the youngest backstage managers at London Fashion Week. Working within diverse environments, allowed Leyla to experience many facets across the spectrum of light at a young age. She left the world of fashion to enter the path of service, applying her inner wisdom, worldly experiences, and years of study, founding Standing Light™ and Heart To Table™. She’s a certified Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and a certified HeartMath Trainer. She studied mindfulness and meditation throughout her time at Plum Village, Thich Nhat Hanh’s Zen Buddhist Monastery, and spent years working with healers and teachers around the world practicing Past Life Regression, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Inner Child Work.
She blends her range of understandings into her own methodology of healing called, Light Coaching, and applies her varied acumen to every aspect of Standing Light; whether it’s workshops, 1 on 1 immersions, retreats, or Heart To Table events. At sixteen years old, she realized that the symbology of her birthday formed the shape of a heart, that moment would forever brand her evolution as she forged onwards helping people to reconnect to their heart and discover their innate essence of light.
