LARA
YOGA INSTRUCTOR (SHE/HER)

Lara is a yoga instructor at VERDE. She has been practicing yoga since 2001, teaching yoga for over a decade, as well as leading our local community of yoga instructors in the greater Seattle Area by hosting and teaching Yoga Teacher Trainings for the past 4 years.  She is passionate about all things yoga, and is an expert on anatomy and how it relates to functional body movement. “Yoga has helped me on so many levels; to be able to teach is a privilege. I love seeing people make their own connections to the practice and and explore the benefits in their own lives”. When she is not practicing yoga in or out of the studio, Lara is a huge dog lover, enjoys spending time with her pups and family, tending to her garden, and being a "baseball Mom" to her all-star son.
