”My vision is to empower individuals to step into leadership by taking responsibility for the choices they make and how their actions shape the world we live in”- Leena Patel
Mentored since the age of 4 by her grandfather- a direct disciple of Gandhi- Leena began her education in yoga and healthy leadership firmly anchored in the principle of following one’s Truth and leading “from the inside out”. Her grandfather was firm: Be the embodiment of what you believe and show others what is possible by being first and thereafter sharing it outwardly. Yet, it was many years before she recognized the gift that she was given. She was the ‘why’ child, questioning everything she was taught, and this spirit led her to looking for answers in Buddhism and studies in psychology and quantum physics. Ironically, years later, her journey led her back to acknowledging the heart-based wisdom of the teachings her grandfather imparted her with.
The Power of a Decision
Her love of movement led her to train as a professional dancer. After a devastating injury that left her unable to walk for 8 months, medical professionals and coaches advised a change of profession, but Leena decided otherwise. Her years of studying the capabilities of the mind and the brain plus powerful belief that she was destined for more, led her to write her own prescription for success. She defied the odds and went on to accumulate 10 years as a professional dancer at a soloist level, including performances for up to 10,000 person audiences with Joi as opening act for the Eurythmics Peace Tour.
During rehearsals and pre-performance she would lead artistes through practices that enabled them to shift their state and deliver powerful performances. Off stage she coached them through best practices for living with clarity and vibrancy, and to become leaders not just in the professional sphere but in how they conducted themselves in their life also. The results were powerful, word spread and the invitations to coach internationally started flowing in.
A Unique Perspective
Leena went on to work with such luminaries as Celine Dion, Wayne Brady and the artistes of Cirque du Soleil as well as various global corporate institutions. The combination of extensive training background in multiple mind-body modalities, her journey against the odds to soloist performer and lifelong mentor-ship in the principles of yoga and healthy leadership from her grandfather, gave her unique insight into not only revitalizing and transforming the health and performance level of her clients and taking them to a higher level professionally, but also set the foundation for formulating the 3 Principles of Healthy Leadership- a blueprint based on Gandhian wisdom- outlined in her upcoming book ‘Leadership Through Embodiment’ in which she guides readers through practical tips on how to transform themselves on a mind-body level and show up as leaders that have powerful and far-reaching impact and influence in their field- leaders that their families, community and business associates will look to as positive role models.
