E-RYT 500, Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist
Lara began practicing yoga in 2002 when a friend needed practice students and she was emerging from a period of substance abuse. Yoga helped to transform her life and her focus on health / wellness. It helped to propel her towards a long career in the field of substance abuse and mental health treatment, both private and in hospital settings.
During her career she drifted in and out of different styles and studios, even ceasing practicing for a few years before committing to a vinyasa practice. She practiced Ashtanga for a few years but has gravitated more towards slower vinyasa flows where the subtle richness of the practice in her opinion can be more savored.
She received her 200 hour certificate in 2011 at Be Luminous Yoga and completed her 500 hour with Yoga Medicine. She's fortunate to be co-teacher of Viveka Yoga, 200 hour RYS in the Seattle area, teach in several studios, lead corporate wellness classes, and teach private clients.
