Being a Colorado native, Lara was always drawn to an active and athletic lifestyle. Lara was introduced to yoga in a high school dance class and she knew instantly that it was an intricate piece of her life's path. She was intrigued and mystified by the complexity of the human body and the study of its movement.
In 2005, Lara began her studies in massage therapy at the Boulder College of Massage Therapy, where she currently works in Boulder as a therapist. As the result of a shoulder injury, her dedication to yoga grew more and more. Compelled to immerse herself in its study, she completed the CorePower teacher training in 2008 and began masterfully weaving her experience as a bodyworker and yoga practitioner.
Lara's classes convey the depth that she has discovered within yoga that goes far beyond the physical Asana practice. Lara creates a beautiful rhythm of meditation and healing by aligning the breath and focusing the mind with the movement of the physical body.
"Because the practice has affected me so profoundly, it is a joy and honor to share its benefits through teaching."
Recently, Lara has expanded her knowledge beyond Power Vinyasa and Hot Yoga to teach Yin Yoga and Partner Yoga by the fall of 2009.
