PYP 048: Lara Heimann on Yoga as Preparation for Life

lara-heimannLara Heimann runs the Yogastream studio in Princeton, New Jersey. Originally trained as a physical therapist, Lara brings anatomical and functional sensibilities to her classes to enable her students to push their limits in a safe and powerful way.

She's been completely plant-based for the past 12 years, and sees a strong mind-body connection between eating plants and moving the body joyfully.

In this interview we cover:

  • Lara's philosophy of yoga as preparation for real life
  • The right and wrong ways to challenge the body
  • The protein question for plant-based athletes
  • How to determine if a yoga teacher or studio will help or harm you
  • How yoga can make you a stronger advocate for your core values
