Lara has been practicing yoga since she was a teen. Her yoga practice developed after suffering an injury in her dance career. She turned to yoga to repair herself physically and mentally. Then when her mother developed an eating disorder, Lara’s mat became her safe place, a place of rest, a place to flow freely, and a place to be herself. Realizing the magic of yoga, she wanted to share her safe space with others. Her favorite place to practice is with her cats! Lara graduated with a 200 hour Yoga Teaching Certificate from Peachtree Yoga Center in February of 2018. She believes that yoga is for everyone; all one needs is an open heart and a mat to call home. Lara is continuing her yoga education to obtain her 500 hour certification. She’s always excited to share laughs, yoga, and herself with others!
