Community Programs + Outreach Director
Lara is a yoga and meditation teacher who moved back home to Portland, Maine after 5 years of teaching yoga in Los Angeles in public, private and corporate settings to a wide range of practitioners. Her goal is to extend the accessibility and availability of yoga and meditation to everyone. She is currently working toward her Masters of Social Work through University of New England. Lara’s innate gift to connect deeply with others makes her the ideal community relations and outreach director at Good Medicine Collective. Her background in working with refugees through the State Department and working and living among many diverse cultures, is also an asset for this nonprofit organization which seeks to welcome all comers to the space and its offerings.
