Lara is an internationally touring yoga teacher and artist, and co-founder of Back2Roots Retreats, hosting transformative immersions around the world spreading her passion for movement and creative expression through the body.
She has become renowned for her fluid and dynamic teaching style, delivered with heartfelt poetic prose, inviting students to savour the texture of every sensation as a portal into revelation and dynamic moving meditation.
A class with Lara is raw, playful and powerful as we journey from the outside in. Inspired deeply by the teachings inherent in nature, each practice is a call for conscious connection with ourselves and the world around us.
She is trained and specialized in Vinyasa, Yin, Meditation and AcroYoga.
Laras classes here on Yogobe are at an intermediate level.
Brooke is an internationally travelling yoga teacher and co-founder of Back2Roots Retreats, hosting transformative yoga and meditation retreats around the world. Forever a student, she revels in the opportunity to connect with new communities and share the rich alchemy of the practice that has opened infinite doorways of growth in her own life.
Brooke’s teachings are deeply rooted in the ancient teachings of Yoga and Tantra and the potent transmissions of the esoteric mystics - using poetry, music and sensual movement to offer a glimpse and gateway into expanded states and experiences otherwise indescribable. Her classes are intentionally slow, honouring the need for time, space and deep listening to savour the full spectrum of pleasure to pain, as a gateway to understanding the most intimate wisdom of what it means to be alive.
Brooke is trained and specialized in Yoga (vinyasa), Tantra and Meditation.
Her classes here on Yogobe are at a more advanced level.
