Lara Stapleton
International Yoga Teacher and Aromatherapist with 20 years experience teaching in Scaravelli Inspired, Hatha and Yin Yoga traditions.

I take my students on a deep and explorative inner journey of the body and mind through intelligent yoga
I specialise in healing back pain, injury and emotional trauma
Yoga is about being empowered through your own body, feeling alive, listening and being respectful to whats going on deeply inside
I’m wholeheartedly passionate about teaching, nurturing and facilitating positive change


Yogaroma was founded by myself in 2004. Having trained extensively as a yoga teacher and aromatherapist, I believe that this specific combination – a Scaravelli Inspired Yoga class incorporating the use of oils or followed by an aromatherapy massage treatment – will give you a complete holistic experience, working on all aspects of your being – physical, emotional and spiritual.

The ‘Yogaroma Experience’ begins with a private yoga session tailored to the individuals needs with specific focus on breath, creating space and expansion, alignment, gravity, awareness and allowing the mind and body to surrender and let go. It is followed straight afterwards by an aromatherapy massage. Oils are blended specifically to the individual, as they are absorbed into the body they act directly on the sense of smell, having a very profound effect on the emotional body, releasing tension, pain, stress and relaxing the senses.

Yoga Class at The Life Centre


Monday 7.30-9pm
Hatha/Scaravelli at Yogaloft, Beethoven Street, W10

Tuesday and Thursday 9.30am
Hatha/Scaravelli at The Life Centre, Nottinghill Gate, W8

This Hatha/Scaravelli Inspired Yoga class focuses on somatic movements and asana using the ground, breath, spine, expansion and space. The practice begins on the ground where Lara will guide you away from ‘doing’ movement but rather sensing and feeling into ‘being’ movement, opening up sensory awareness and new neurological pathways through the body. Exercises on the ground invite spirals, rotations, circular and sliding gliding movements to reduce myofascial holding and then you are guided from the ground into an intelligent asana sequence to integrate, strengthen, elongate and bring a new found vitality and radiance to your inner structures.

Your mind becomes calm and focused and body free of tension. It’s a deeply intelligent, nurturing and grounding practice allowing you to get in contact with your true inner nature without imposing outer layers or a conditioned mind. A truly mediative and transformational experience.

Being interviewed by Simon Savage at Yogaloft.

Talking about working with the subtle body and primal movement from the ground up.

Scaravelli Yoga

Filmed in India while I was teaching a retreat, this promo gives you a deeper insight and understanding into the foundational principles of Scaravelli Inspired Yoga and what a healing, nurturing and intelligent practice it is. An invitation to take an inward journey and explore the body and the deep SELF from the inside out without force …

The practice of Scaravelli Inspired Yoga uses the earth’s energy to release the weight of the body towards gravity, which creates elongation and space along the spine and an effortless breath. It’s a deeply nurturing and grounding practice and very primal, allowing you to get in contact with the creature inside yourself without imposing other layers.

It focuses on peeling back the layers and unfolding the body from the inside without force. As you learn to move from the natural flow of the breath and surrender to gravity, it creates a wave like movement in the spine. From the wave, your practice can unfold into beautiful rhythmical spirals and formations … its spontaneous and the breath and spine dance together.

It’s profoundly healing in working with areas of resistance, tension, injury and deep emotional blockages. Its NOT a passive practice, small micro movements or larger wave like movements are taking place inside the body all the time. Your unfolding, unravelling and unwinding the body…allowing it to go where it wants to go without force or pushing or pulling.

Movement that is born out of the breath has beauty, grace and softness. You are working from the inside out and moving with total awareness through listening and attentiveness … this helps to focus the mind. It’s a meditative practice. There is also a lot of focus on the feet and coming up from the ground into the feet … the legs … the pelvis … to set the spine free. This way of working can be strong but deeply grounding.

Lara’s teaching is truly inspirational. She has a calming presence that has managed to make me, one of the most distracted people I know, focused and mindful whilst still challenging myself in the safe, restorative and inspiring environment she provides. I am always energised after my classes with her and look forward to them immensely. The balance of physical and spiritual learning I get from every session is something I hope to continue for a very long time. I feel lucky to have found her as a teacher.

I would like to thank you for arranging the most amazing yoga holiday which surpassed even my best hopes for the week. Lara is a teacher on a different level. If there was a bronze, silver and gold level, Lara would undoubtedly come in at the platinum level

Lovely Lara, you are filled with love and light that oozes out of your pores! Thanks so much for being so passionate and caring with your gifts; you have so much to give and I am sure our paths will cross again; the perfect ‘unwind’ for a wound up me – very grateful


Thank you so much for your dedication, enthusiasm and kindness this week. I arrived as an inexperienced and unsure student and I am leaving with enough knowledge and belief in my spine, lungs and feet to enjoy all future yoga experiences. My upper body (spine, ribs etc) has really opened up this week and I am grateful for you facilitating that. Thank you for everything. You are amazingly inspirational and I wish you every happiness that life can offer you. You deserve nothing less
