Lara's yoga classes are creative, intentional, dynamic, and meditative. Students are invited to arrive as their whole selves, unedited and awake, and to breathe into whatever that is in each moment. Lara's principal style of yoga instruction is vinyasa-based, with plenty of alignment cues and reflective visualizations along the way. Her love of poetry tends to be woven into her classes around the edges as well.
Lara's first 200-hour teacher training was in Greenpath Yoga in 2009, which incorporates ecological principals into more traditional yogic philosophy. Care for the planet as part of care for ourselves and one another is something that Lara feels passionate about. She is currently pursuing her 300-hour certification through Samadhi Yoga's modular program in Denver, CO.
In addition to teaching weekly yoga classes, workshops, private sessions, and retreats, Lara is also the co-executive director of Santa Fe Community Yoga, Santa Fe, NM's nonprofit yoga studio, which works hard to ensure that welcoming, affordable yoga is available to all who are interested. She is also offers professional, therapeutic massage therapy, intuitive energy work, hot stone therapy and more.
