Lara Christine, CMT, E-RYT, CCH
Lara is a passionate yogini who believes in the power of presence and love to illuminate, transform, and restore balance.
As a powerful self-care adjunct to her massage practice, her dedication to yoga grew more and more. Compelled to immerse herself in its study, she completed her first Yoga Teacher Training in 2008 and began masterfully weaving her experience as a bodyworker and a yoga practitioner. Lara’s classes convey the depth that she has discovered within yoga that goes far beyond the physical asana practice. Lara creates a beautiful rhythm of meditation and healing by aligning intention, the breath, and focusing the mind with the movement of the physical body. “Because the practice has affected me so profoundly it is a joy and honor to share its benefits through teaching.” Lara has expanded her knowledge beyond Vinyasa and Hot Yoga to teach Yin Yoga, she is currently studying Yoga Therapy.
The moment she heard about Elysabeth’s first Principle-Based Partner Yoga™ Teacher Training in 2009 she was magnetized knowing that this was her next step on her yogic path. By combining the power of touch with yoga Lara discovered a deep resonance with a powerfully healing practice. Lara believes that partner yoga creates a sacred space and container for the deeper philosophy of yoga to emerge. Yoga translates to mean “union” and it is here in the space between the other that Lara finds the true essence of yoga: that we are all one. Lara knows that having the support of another human during our yoga practice, and in the dance of life, can cultivate expanded awareness and energy. From her experience, what she discovers through her partner yoga practices can translate off the mat into the world for a rich and rewarding embodied understanding of human relationships. Lara loves teaching Principle-Based Partner Yoga™ through group workshops, retreats, trainings, and is available for individual and couple private sessions.
As a massage therapist, yoga instructor, and clinical hypnotist, she offers her energy as a gift to each of her students and clients to inspire greater awareness, discovery, and wellbeing. Each breath, each class, each bow, each session, each touch, and each movement, represents a prayer of devotion and love in service to radiant well-being. When not on her mat or in the office, you can find Lara hiking, playing in the Colorado mountains, nurturing time with her family and friends, cooking delicious meals, or singing and dancing.
