Good movement, everyone! Welcome to Redefining Yoga, a podcast designed to investigate all aspects of the modern evolution of yoga. My name is Lara Heimann and I am a movement specialist, yoga studio owner, loving mother of two, proud vegan, and your host!
My mission is to help everyone listening find freedom through smarter and safer movement patterns so that, together, we can be uplifted, benefitting all beings around us.
To start our journey into movement, I want to share more about who I am, why I feel compelled to bring movement to the masses through Movement by Lara, and how we’ll be redefining yoga throughout this show.
I want to be clear – I’m not trying to change yoga at all! Yoga is and always has been wonderful, and the essence of it always remains the same: raising consciousness. I just want to examine the box we’re putting yoga into and explore ways to change or improve the way we’re living.
Because when you look critically at some of the movements in yoga, you’ll see they’re actually not great for the human body. This is why I really believe in teaching Smart Yoga, in which we always ask the question, “Does this feel right for what our modern culture needs?”
So are you ready to join me in exploring, on our mats and in our lives, different ways of moving better, feeling better, and making our movement count?
