In this episode Rachel is joined once again by yoga teacher, physiotherapist and anatomy genius Lara Heimann. Currently leading a yoga teacher training together, Rachel and Lara discuss everything from their best mothering tips to Lara’s sustainable home. Diving into a deep conversation on the role functional anatomy plays in a yoga practice, Lara breaks down simple poses like downward facing dog, plank, and chaturanga, and notes the common misconceptions people typically bring with them to class. With social media glorifying the overly bendy yogi, they discuss the need to move away from the idea that yoga is simply a pose. Instead, Lara expresses the need for us to be constant critical thinkers when moving in our body in order to protect ourselves from injury. We can find this sense of confidence in our practice by truly connecting to our core – the center of our bodies where all is integrated. It is through our core that we find our sense of courage and strength in ourselves, and ultimately our goals and purpose in life.
