It is very obvious that Lara has a true passion for this, truly cares about sharing her passion for it with all of us. One can tell that she has a vested interest in seeing each & every one of her students succeed & gain the benefits of practice. More than that, she does not try to push people beyond their capabilities & treat it like an aerobics class (like some “yoga instructors” that I’ve heard about), but rather makes you strive to get the most out of what you can personally do…& then makes you go a little further each time. She is a blessing & we should all be very grateful to have her among us.

When I first came to Lara everything in my life was heading in a myriad of competing directions. I was very stressed, reaching a sort of critical mass in regards to both personal and professional balance. I had lost my sense of center, there was no inward peace or place in which to turn. I felt restless, tense and displaced. I knew something had to give.

With an intuitive, inspired and supportive spirit Lara has helped me regain control over my life. She is a wonderful instructor who possesses great patience and understanding. Yoga is now the core of my day, creating an inward calm and focus that permeates everything I do. It has given me new found physical confidence as well as renewed mental clarity. Most importantly yoga has given back to me, simply speaking, myself. But not only that, a new improved self – and that’s probably the best and most fulfilling gift of all. I am deeply grateful to Lara and Land Yoga for helping me untangle all the ‘knots’ I had created. I feel great everyday, even when life is less than agreeable!

Lara offers one on one coaching sessions for anyone looking to gain more life clarity and perspective. Get out of your own way and start making steps toward the life you’ve always imagined. Find the inner resolve and accountability you’ve been dreaming of. Create a new habit, land the position, make the move. All of it is possible.

I had tried coaching models before that were expensive, ineffectual, and ended up being rather lecture-y and blame-y. Because of this I was very hesitant to enter another coaching dynamic, but I knew that Lara and I had aligning values and knew I could trust her to hold my truth and help me make meaningful evolution happen. She uses specific, action-oriented planning, is always realistic, validating and empathetic. She is also generous to commiserate and share things that have been a challenge for her as well, validating my experience, and then helping to form a system of organization to overcome that challenge. I cannot recommend Lara’s coaching program enough.-

I smile immediately when I think about Lara! I think she will continue to have this effect on me throughout my life. She is just a bright light that brings a sense of peace to my mind when I think back at our coaching sessions. I hope to see her soon so I can hug her to show her my gratitude for all she has done for me. Lara – thank you!!


It was very comforting talking to Lara. I felt comfortable to share my fears, thoughts and anxieties with a “stranger” over the phone and did not feel judged. I was able to speak to Lara and she did not tell me *what to do*. At the end of the call, there was always a plan with what to do for the following week. Lara was able to give me confidence to brainstorm ideas and situations that may be easier for other people. I couldn’t thank her enough, and I’m so grateful for the opportunity.
