Lara and Roy

We are Lara and Roy and we are fully qualified Iyengar Yoga teachers with a combined experience of over 25 years of continuous teaching.

Lara Speroni

Teaching Iyengar Yoga since 2007

Lara has been teaching Iyengar Yoga for over 13 years. She has therefore gained valuable experience in teaching a variety of people with mixed abilities and a wide range of health and fitness levels.

Lara was introduced to Iyengar Yoga in 2000 and from the first inspiring class she never looked back! Today she cannot imagine her life without the practice of Yoga. Her Yoga journey is never ending and forever challenging, yet stimulating and rewarding. She practices daily, attends weekly classes and continuously studies with Senior Iyengar teachers from the UK and India. Starting from 2013 she has been 4 times to the mother Iyengar Yoga Institute in Pune, India, to study under the Iyengar family and their teachers. She has been truly lucky to come across very committed, generous teachers to whom she is sincerely grateful. When teaching, Lara endeavours to respect her teachers and stay true to the source.

Lara gained the UK Iyengar Yoga teaching certificate in 2007 and she now holds the Intermediate Junior 3 certificate equivalent to Level 3.

Roy Russell

Teaching Iyengar Yoga since 2007

Roy has a teaching qualification in Iyengar Yoga (2007) and BSc (Hon) Sport Science degree. His academic knowledge combined with experience in teaching Iyengar Yoga has given him a deep understanding of the benefits that can be gained through the practice of yoga.

Yoga has many benefits that are now being applied to professional and recreational sports people either to enhance performance or prevent and ameliorate injuries. Iyengar Yoga has a unique approach aimed at working with the body and mind. Its precision, alignment and attention to detail make it a therapeutic method of training.

In 2020 Roy started an MA in Traditions of Yoga and Meditation at SOAS.
