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 owns YogaStream studio in Princeton, NJ and directs the 200-hour YA-certified teacher training school. She leads international retreats, is a Lululemon ambassador and a regular contributor to MyYogaOnline, MindBodyGreen, and Elephant Journal. As a wellness enthusiast and a certified national food chef, she can often be found experimenting in the kitchen or playing outdoors with her family.
