Lara Dunlea

Lara is a highly experienced yoga teacher, childbirth educator and mother who has worked with hundreds of students at the Novara Centre through her role in leading classes in pregnancy yoga, hatha flow, and mum & baby yoga, as well as birth preparation workshops.

From a background in Psychology and Montessori education, Lara embarked on a career in yoga after experiencing its life-enhancing benefits first-hand, particularly under the tutelage of her teacher, Marianne Jacuzzi, who continues to inspire her practice.

The empowering experience of birthing her two children at home with the support of a wonderful midwife and partner fuelled Lara’s passion for the life-changing nature of positive birth and prompted her to pursue a wide range of trainings relating to birth preparation with such luminaries in the arena as Wendy Teasdil, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Tara Kileen and Tracy Donegan. Having qualified as a GentleBirth Instructor with the GentleBirth Institute in 2016, Lara is delighted to be adding GentleBirth workshops to the offerings at Novara, thereby providing mums-to-be and their birth partners with the psychological and physical tools required to optimise their experience of pregnancy, birth and parenting.
