These moving meditations are accessible to all as they are low impact and can be modified for any body. The breath, gentle movements and the mind are utilized as powerful tools to move awareness and energy within.
*Please contact me directly via email or phone before attending a group practice for the first time as I am occasionally out of town and class may thus be cancelled.

"Over the years I’ve attended a number of Qigong groups. None of them left much of a sustained imprint. Someone suggested that I try Lara’s Boulder group. During the first class, I connected immediately and profoundly with Qigong. This was due to Lara’s amazing ability to transmit a clear felt sense—moment to moment— through each exercise. I was able to easily access a sustained sense of wholeness—that of being synchronized with body, heart and mind. I highly recommend her to anyone who wishes to be more deeply in touch with their true nature. "

“Lara herself moves with the grace and ease she speaks of and teaches about. She is clearly bathing in the ‘sea of qi’ she encourages us, her students, to enter into. As a longtime movement teacher myself, I recognize that Lara has the rare ability to help her students easily access and experience the fluidity and peace that Qigong offers. Her instruction is beautiful, enjoyable to follow, insightful and creates a clear space for healing. Lara is a masterful guide with a poetic style and draws from her rich life experience."
