DT 062: That Functional Feeling with Hiro Landazuri

By Henry Winslow, Yoga Student and Teacher

Hiro Landazuri connected with yoga about 20 years ago to relieve injuries from running and was immediately drawn to the challenging and stress-relieving aspects of the practice. Since leaving a career in heart transplant surgery to pursue his passion for teaching yoga, Hiro has gained a following for his anatomy-focused approach to teaching. He inspires people to understand their bodies better and find a deeper connection to themselves through a functional approach to yoga practice. In this episode, you'll hear from Hiro on: The emotional impact of doing healing work on humans at the end of life, and the heart-wrenching moment that made him walk away from a career in cardiac surgery Functional movement as a door to emotional intelligence and, ultimately, toward making positive life changes Marrying a western medical perspective with "yoga anatomy" knowledge to make informed decisions as a teacher and student Practice as a means to rehab injury, move away from aesthetic into feeling, and disrupt repetitive stress patterns Announcements: Join me for upcoming workshops in NYC; Austin, TX; and Bucerias, Mexico: henrywins.com/events Apply for the 300-hour YTT at Lighthouse Yoga School.
