Lara’s classes focus on self-worth, mind-to-muscle connection, and presence (with a little bit of cheese humor). She strives to share the message of liberation and healing through movement with others. She teaches her students how embracing self-love leads to a discovery of inner strength. Lara is known for a motivating signature phrase that she offers at the close of all her classes: “If no one has told you today, you are WORTHY!”
Since 2010, Lara immersed herself in the practice of yoga, discovering its transformative power. In 2018, she obtained her 200-hour Teacher Training with Peachtree Yoga Center, and upon graduation, Lara embarked on a new path as a yoga teacher with Performance Power Yoga, under the guidance of her mentor and studio Founder, Sherry Lankford. Lara is currently Performance Power Yoga’s Lead Teacher and Social Media Manager, and is a valued member of the staff and the studio community. She is responsible for cultivating the PPY Slow Power Flow format and teaching that class holds a special place in her heart.
Teaching yoga has become Lara’s passion because it transcends mere physical results; it encourages individuals to connect with their inner selves and embrace their true potential. As a mother, Lara has experienced the profound benefits of yoga during pregnancy and postpartum, finding solace and strength in this ancient practice. Lara’s favorite band is Queen and you can usually find her outside with her son on any sunny day.
