Lara "Land" Lauchheimer - Personal Biography
Lara Land was first introduced to Ashtanga yoga when she was still in college at Boston University School for the Arts. When she moved to New York in 2002, she took on a more committed practice and eventually found her mentor, Christopher Hildebrandt, with whom she apprenticed for two years, and from whom she learned the intermediate series. It was during this time that Lara made her first trip to India, where she was lucky enough to practice under Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. Lara has continued to study yearly (and often bi-yearly) at the Ashtanga Yoga institute. She takes great care to pass on the lineage as she learned it, in its purest form.
