Ashtanga is a powerful style of yoga that involves matching the movement of the breath with the movement in and out of postures. We use a set sequence of poses which we build upon as we grow together and which can be adapted to any level and ability. In this weekly class Lara emphasizes the three-pointed focus of breath, gaze, and posture and suggests ways for using this focus to transform the practice into a moving meditation. Prepare to sweat if you want to or move more slowly and have any pose modified to meet your needs.


Thimo is an extraordinary person. He is real, wise, knowledgeable and teaches with care, openness, courage and humility. He is what he is teaches. I felt known and seen as well as valued and respected.

In Lara Land, I have experienced, when I needed it the most, an individual who is passionate about yoga, passionate about her dedication to teaching and unstoppable in a way that goes beyond yoga. She has a passion for the local community, a passion for sharing her talents and yoga all over the world.
