Senior Intermediate I
Lara Warren is a Senior Intermediate 1 certified Iyengar Yoga Instructor. She has practiced yoga since 1982 and taught since 1990. She founded Hip Joint Yoga Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1994 and has been a core faculty member of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York since 1996, teaching all levels and abilities. She offers monthly workshops at Greenhouse Holistic, has taught throughout the States and in the UK, and is part of the teacher training staff with the Iyengar Yoga Institute of New York. She has traveled to India 5 times to study with the Iyengar family, and continues to do so every 2 years.
Lara has a wonderful enthusiasm for the subject of yoga which she communicates to her students with dynamic presence and beautiful demonstrations. Her teaching style is energetic and focused; her classes are dynamic, challenging and complete. She welcomes all levels of students and is attentive to specific needs.
Flamenco and jazz, friendship and heartache, world travel and life experience inform and shape Lara’s teaching–She lifts her classes to the highest common denominator and propels her students to excel, believing in one’s own innate ability to learn and heal. She searches out the interplay between striving to do one’s best while accepting what’s real, allowing students to aim high while remaining content no matter what life (or yoga) presents.
