Meet Cara


Cara LaRochelle, RYT 200

Cara came to yoga in 2003 as a busy mama seeking stillness in the midst of relentless activity. After experimenting with different styles of yoga, she found that she could best achieve stillness of mind through movement of body. Her first vinyasa flow class was a revelation: sinking into her body as she moved with her breath, she found the ever-present whirling dervish of worries and stresses, thoughts and plans receding into the background.

After many years of practice, Cara completed her 200-hour yoga teacher training in early 2017 under the guidance of Kathryn Anne Flynn of Intelligent Edge Yoga, a certified teacher of Ayurvedic Yoga and a respected and well-loved figure in the Ottawa yoga community.

Cara believes that knowledge is power and that intention allows us to focus our energy. Her classes focus on education and growth, tapping into the specific needs of the yoga communities that she serves. She will guide you in moving with your breath – your sacred rhythm; in increasing strength and flexibility in both body and mind; and in reconnecting with your inner self.
