Physical Therapist and international yoga leader, Lara Heimann, E-RYT 500, is redefining yoga through better education and innovation with her company, Movement by Lara. She developed Lara's Yoga Training (LYT) Method to address the deficiencies and imbalances of our modern lives and limited movement patterns. The LYT Method is sustainable, freeing, and efficient. LYT classes emphasize intelligent sequencing, smart cueing, alignment, and functional movement.
Lara honed her LYT Method through 25 years of practice and more than a decade teaching thousands of students internationally during workshops, trainings, and retreats. Her mission is to help everyone find freedom through smarter, safer, and more conscious movement patterns so they can then uplift others.
She leads teacher training programs at her studio, YogaStream, in Princeton, NJ and will be offering online education as well. She is also the co-faciliatator of Rachel Brathen's yoga teacher training at Island Yoga and is known for helping new yoga teachers find their core and fall in love with anatomy.
Movement has always been Lara’s favorite form of medicine, beginning with her early years as an athlete and dancer. She graduated from Duke University with a BS in Biological Anthropology and Anatomy and a MA in Physical Therapy. When she is not on her mat, she is out hiking with her dogs, traveling with her family, and mixing it up in the kitchen as a natural foods vegan chef. Learn more at her website www.movementbylara.com
