WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Lara is a gifted teacher able to lead by both instruction and example, with a healing touch and common sense. Many yoga teachers have elements on that list, but Lara has the whole package!
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!

DISCOVER HOW TO MAKE CHANGES THAT STICK
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.
Lara works in partnership with her MBSR & early Buddhism trained husband Thimo Wittich to create yoga retreats and other contemplative experiences in nature in the Great Western Catskills. Join them for one of their upcoming events blending yoga, meditation, pranayama, and nature immersion.
