The teacher training I took from Lara was truly a once in a lifetime experience. This is not your ordinary, run of the mill training class; Lara pours her heart and soul into each and every one of her students and creates an amazing experience that one is sure to never forget. I learned so much and enjoyed every second of the hands on training. Lara is a ray of light and nurtures her students so that they are prepared and knowledgeable and ready to teach on their own. I will always be grateful I had the opportunity to take the YogaBlends teacher training program."
