Lara is the owner of Sukha Yoga and is beyond grateful to share what she loves with a wide community. Lara first discovered Yoga whist studying Naturopathy in 2002 and completed her initial Yoga Teacher Training in 2009. While living in New York City she discovered Laughing Lotus Yoga Centre and fell head over heels in love with the centre, it’s teachers and community. Lara has completed over 500 hours of study at Laughing Lotus and remains close with her teachers and mentors whom she is forever grateful for their endless inspiration and generosity in sharing the blessings of this powerful practice. Lara is especially grateful to Dana Flynn, owner of Laughing Lotus NYC and co creator of Lotus Flow, for her love, mentorship, support and enthusiasm for Yoga, life and community.
Lara is dedicated to continually expanding her knowledge and has completed additional trainings including Restorative Yoga with Judith Hanson Lasater, Forrest Yoga methods with Ana Forrest, Harmonium and Mythology studies with Raghunath Cappo and study of Vanda Scaravelli’s lineage with her long term student, Diane Long in Rome, Italy.
Lara’s teachings are continually innovative draw deeply from her own practice . She is inspired by music, poetry, literature and mythology and weaves whatever is “lighting her up” into the teachings and practice.
Having taught classes extensively throughout Perth and leading retreats locally and internationally, Lara is honored and excited to share her love for this ancient practice with the community.
‘Yoga must not be practised to control the body: it is the opposite, it must bring freedom to the body, all the freedom it needs.’
