Meet Lara

Creator of LYT™ Yoga and the LYT™ Method

A practicing physical therapist and yoga teacher for 25 years, Lara Heimann holds a B.A from Duke University in Biological Anthropology, a M.S from Duke University in Physical Therapy, and a Post Grad Certification in Neurodevelopmental Training from the Recovering Function Organization through Stanford University. Combining her educational background in physiological studies and her passion for movement, Lara attended her first 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Yoga Institute of Houston and began to notice a void in the inclusion of anatomy in the conversations of yoga training.

In the years to follow, Lara began to refine the LYT™ Yoga Method, combining physiology, kinesiology, neurology, and functional movement patterns to yield a more cohesive philosophy. Lara is also a certified Natural Food Chef through the Natural Kitchen Cooking School and a certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

In 2011 Lara opened up the first official LYT™ Yoga Studio, YogaStream, in Princeton NJ, and began to share her teachings through a codified and extensive LYT™ Yoga Teacher Training that continues to be offered for students all over the world.

A Fearless And Unstoppable Leader In Yoga

Lara Heimann is an international yoga pioneer and Physical Therapist focused on evolving the practice of yoga to empower movement and balance amidst a modern lifestyle of technology and sedentariness. With an advanced degree in physical therapy and more than 25 years of yoga practice and education, Lara is redefining the modern practice through her comprehensive LYT™ Method, emphasizing smart alignment, functional movement, and spiritual wellness.

For Lara, the seeds of fascination with the brain-body connection were planted at just 18, as she laced up her sneakers for a marathon she didn’t train for. At mile 20, she realized that the mind was the thing that would either stop her or keep her going to get to the finish line. She has kept her eye on the finish line ever since, as she has gone on to teach her methodology to more than 5,000 students in more than 50 countries and has been asked to host workshops all over the world to speak about and explore consciousness, anatomy and purposeful movement. Lara is a regular contributor to Women Fitness, and has been featured in outlets like NBC News, Today Show, Inside Edition, Yahoo, Shape, Scientific American, MSN, Nylon, Pop Sugar, Elite Daily, Well+Good and so many more. She has also partnered with the New York City Department of Transportation to lead a city-wide yoga class during their Summer Streets initiative and welcomed nearly 400 participants to breathe and move together under the warm summer sun.

Through the holistic connection between body and mind, Lara’s methodology is a clear and influential roadmap to ignite the spirit to operate at its highest potential for every body. Coined a “yoga mama” by students across the globe, and a teacher of teachers, Lara also champions healthy habits beyond the mat as a natural foods vegan chef and a strong advocate for animal rights.
