Yoga is multifaceted, and each of us has a unique experience and perspective to share. Today, we welcome Lara Heimann, an international yoga pioneer and physical therapist focused on evolving the practice of yoga to empower movement and balance among a modern lifestyle of technology and sedentariness. She is redefining the practice of yoga through her LYT method, emphasizing smart alignment, functional movement, and spiritual wellness and, in today’s episode, you’ll hear how Lara found yoga by accident and instantly fell in love. You’ll also hear how she integrated education about the body into her yoga teaching practice, which daily habits we bring onto the mat, and why she found it so exciting to explore different methods of movement through yoga. Lara unpacks how the LYT method is the meeting place between physical therapy and yoga and hones in on perseverance and flow. You’ll also be introduced to her beliefs around teaching well and inviting people in to experience their own power, and we touch on the power of moving in a variety of different ways and the energy we leak if we don’t strengthen our cores, plus so much more. We hope you will join us!
