Practice

I have had the privilege of learning from a variety of senior teachers and have been passed down Yogic knowledge from lineages that aim to meet each student where they are. Because of this, I teach to the practitioners who are in the room with me, and I have been blessed to work with a diverse group of individuals. Generally, I teach asana/postural classes that are gentle to moderate in intensity, and allow exploration of a variety of other Yogic techniques including pranayama (breathwork), meditation, mudras, and mantra. Restorative classes are gentle and supported by props to aid in each practitioners’ comfort.

Current Schedule:

Candlelight Slow Flow Tuesdays at 7:30pm – My Vinyasa Practice, Austin, TX
Flow Fridays at 10:30am – My Vinyasa Practice, Austin, TX
BOOK HERE – First class is on us!

Group classes are a beautiful way of bringing the community together to honor the importance of sangha, however the power of a personal practice is just as, if not more, important to uncover the transformational beauty of Yoga. I specialize in working with individuals and small groups, helping my clients explore how they can integrate Yoga into their daily lives. Book a 60 minute session for a one-time experience or work with me using a multi-session approach where we combine 1-1 guidance and homework to help find what lights you up.

Who would benefit from private Yoga sessions?

Individuals who are interested in a more personal approach to their Yoga practice may benefit from private/semi-private yoga sessions. I will get to know you by reviewing your intake form and having a holistic discussion during your first session (first sessions are typically 75 minutes).

I work with practitioners whose goals include strength/mobility, pain management/prevention, mental/emotional wellness, and/or spiritual wellness.

If you would like to discuss your goals/interests prior to scheduling an appointment, I offer free, no-obligation consultations. Simply reach out to me at shinewithlara@gmail.com.

I am currently accepting virtual clients (world-wide) and in-person clients on a sliding scale basis.
Virtual Clients: $40-$75 per session; In Person Clients: $75-$95 per session
Additional Practitioners (3 person max per session): Add $10 per person


Mindful Movement In Your Community
Are you looking for an opportunity to bring mindfulness practices to your employees, residents, or students? The benefits of these practices are well known, and you would be doing your communities an incredible service by allowing them to explore time-tested methods for creating peace within a chaotic world. I’m currently taking clients both onsite and virtually. I work on your turf (or server), your time, and with whatever resources you have available.


Events and Workshops will also be listed here as scheduled. Check back soon!

The Shine with Lara (SWL) community has been an amazing one, to say the least. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have run several donation-based classes, with 100% of funds sent to organizations that support under-served communities.

As of 2020, our community has supported the following organizations:

Beverly Bootstraps
Therapy Fund for Black Women and Girls
Impact Lebanon
LIFE Generation Ltd.
Trans Yoga Project
First Exposures
The TEARS Foundation
You India
GiveIndia
Friends of the Banyan USA
GlobalGiving India, COVID-19 Relief Fund
Reclaim the Block
Massachusetts Bail Fund
Black Visions
Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe

I want to extend a big thank you to my community of practitioners. I couldn’t have supported these organizations without your help!
