Drawing from her background as a Physical Therapist, Lara has combined her love of anatomy, creative movement and functional training to develop YogaStream, a powerful, challenging flow style that emphasizes anatomy, alignment and intelligent sequencing.
Movement has always been Lara’s favorite form of medicine, beginning with her early years as an athlete and dancer. She graduated from Duke University with a BS in Biological Anthropology and Anatomy and a MA in Physical Therapy, worked as a Physical Therapist and began teaching yoga in 1996. Lara’s passion for yoga transformed into a career and sparked a personal mission to help her students find their source of inner strength.
Lara founded the YogaStream brand and studio and directs its Yoga-Alliance certified 200 and 500 hour teacher trainings. She also leads international retreats and writes articles for a variety of online and print media. In addition to her online classes on www.oneoeight.com, she teaches workshops at other studios and yoga festivals, spreading the philosophy of smart, strong, sustainable yoga and compassionate living. As a wellness enthusiast and a certified vegan natural food chef, she can often be found mixing it up in the kitchen or playing outdoors with her family.
