Yoga with Lara

In every yoga class, I encourage students to embrace the present moment and their whole selves with fearlessness and compassion. My classes build to creative, empowering and challenging sequences, followed by deep stretching and relaxation. We focus on strength, fluidity and quieting the mind – and we usually have some good fun!  

I am a voracious student of yoga. I first came to the mat with a tired body and an anxious mind and – over time and with practice – found both renewed. I began and deepened my yoga practice at O2 Yoga in Massachusetts, and received my 200-hour training through Carolina Yoga Company. I have also completed the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program through Duke Integrative Medicine, and continue my formal and informal yoga education on and off the mat every day.

I’ve been attending Lara’s Saturday morning class every week for months now. It’s my anchor each week with 90 minutes of engaging flow, breathing, and getting back in my body. What I like most about Lara’s style is that she’s very warm and approachable and fun...I like her upbeat style, sense of humor, and big smile that she brings to the more challenging poses. She offers just the right amount of instruction around alignment and then silence to let us flow with the sound of our own breath. Thank you Lara for helping me learn to love yoga!”
