Lara has practiced yoga for more than 18 years. She was drawn to the practice as an uncoordinated and unathletic teenager because it didn’t require catching or kicking anything. She’s done two 200-hour trainings in a mix of alignment-based yoga inspired by Iyengar and Hatha styles.
She’s done training at YogaWorks in Boston and Bloom in Chicago. She’s been a teacher of writing, math, and computer science for more than a decade, and in 2022 decided to bring that enthusiasm for sharing her experience and expertise to yoga.
