Meet Lara Farks
My name is Lara but my friends call me “Farks.”
You might think yoga is weird, too complicated, about twisting yourself into a pretzel stuff only for acrobats, the extremely flexible, and the athletic… but I promise you… If you can breathe, you can practice yoga.
I studied Classical Hatha Yoga at Prana Yoga College in Vancouver, BC under the guidance of Shakti Mhi and Pepe Danza learning how to safely guide the body through moving meditation and breathwork for long, blissful life. I've taken trainings with Tara Stiles who founded Strala Yoga and Mike Taylor — cultivating a no nonsense approach to guiding my fellow peeps in moving with breath. I completed Yin Teacher certification at YYoga Toronto under the guidance of Ashley Holly and am excited to bring this practice of stillness, deep tissue and joint restoration to students.
My classes aren’t about pretensions, confusing analogies, or “performance yoga.” My classes are about clear directions, learning to listen to your body, learning to breathe, learning how your emotions affect you and your body, being who you really are (on and off the mat), honoring the roots of the yoga practice and having a good time too. If you want to learn about yoga philosophy, the benefits and effects of the postures in your body and have fun at the same time, let's work together!
