Lara Stapleton is a truly nurturing and attentive Scaravelli inspired and Hatha Yoga teacher with extensive training and a deep self-practice for over 20 years. This shines through in her teaching as she has a strong intuition on what is going on for each individual in a class. She cares deeply about her students, inspiring and supporting them to develop both on and off the mat.

Her style is gently powerful with special attention on the breath, allowing for growth in ones own internal awareness and awakening the spine, creating flowing wave like movements and natural rhythms as well as working deeply from the ground up.

Her classes allow you to work profoundly from the inside out on individual areas of resistance, injury, deep emotional blockages and alignment with grace and softness. Lara puts her sensitivity as a teacher down to a strong one-on-one approach “ I’m able to adapt yoga to the individual rather than the individual to yoga”.

Lara’s philosophy and teachings are inspired by the spirit and practice of moving into stillness, to experience your true being. Her work and practice have been greatly enthused by her teachers John Stirk & Tias Little. Lara’s areas of speciality are spinal rehabilitation as well as being a trained Aromatherapist.

What's your personal definition of what it means to thrive?

To thrive is to feel empowered in body, mind and heart and to be your most authentic self to reach your highest potential in all areas of your life.

Who do you look up to ? Who has helped you the most along your teacher / retreat leader journey?

My teacher Tias Little for his deep knowledge and mastery of yoga which he teaches with such integrity and humbleness. He is a true inspiration.
