Lara is passionate about helping people maintain a positive, healthy well-being. Throughout her studies and work as a Naturopath (Bachelor of Natural Therapies from Southern Cross University) she practiced Yoga and was always curious to learn more about this ancient health promoting system. In 2008 Lara moved to New York City and along with many other ‘New Yorkers’, sought out Yoga to help create calm in the midst of so much chaos. It was here in a sweaty, packed studio at Laughing Lotus Yoga Centre in Chelsea, Lara was introduced to ‘Lotus Flow’ Vinyasa Yoga. This beautiful practice of Vinyasa honours Yoga’s rich lineage while incorporating innovative sequencing, mindful alignment, breathing practice and meditation. The power of this lively practice inspired Lara to become a teacher and bring it home to Perth.
Lara seeks inspiration for her classes from music, stories, literature and poetry and bows down to her teachers, Dana Flynn, Mary Dana Abott, Sheri Celentano, Alison Cramer and the powerful faculty at Laughing Lotus in New York City for sharing the many blessings. Lara is dedicated to furthering her knowledge and experience as a Yoga teacher. In 2010 she completed her restorative Yoga teacher training with Judith Hanson Lasater and in 2012 Lara returned to NYC to complete her Advanced Teacher Training a Laughing Lotus. While in NYC, Lara undertook courses with internationally renowned teachers Rodney Yee, Elana Brower, Raghunath Cappo and Josh Michaell.
Lara is a member and registered with Yoga Australia and her 500 hour teacher training is recognised internationally by Yoga Alliance. Lara is a proud ambassador for lululemon athletica and is grateful for the support in which the team at the Perth City store has given her. Lara is honored to be able to share her love for Yoga and pass on the ancient teachings with those who show up on the mat.
