Hiro Landazuri (@actionhiro) first connected with yoga almost 20 years ago to help with running-related injuries. The challenging aspects of the practice and the stress relief that came with it immediately drew him in.
While working on his biochemistry degree and conducting research as an undergrad, Hiro decided to take a break from academia. With years of yoga practice under his belt, he began teaching classes in 2007. He went back to college to finish his degree after a series of life changes and entered a rigorous graduate medical program that focused on heart transplant surgery. He left the field after realizing it wasn’t the right path for him and dove right back into teaching yoga.
Come experience hiro’s unique approach to yoga – introducing knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, applying it in various movement patterns and then implementing it in a dynamic yoga practice, so that the practitioner no longer modifies around injury but understands concrete action to take towards healing and advancement in their practice and teaching.

Our hips are an integral part of body function, especially for our backs and knees. This class is based off of my recently released Body Smart Yoga: Hips Program. We will start with a hip mobility warm up, then lead into a creative flow that incorporates drills and breakdowns hip postures.
Throughout this open level class, you will feel and move through different kinds of evidence based stretches and drills that are unique to a typical yoga class. There will also be a full self assessment of end range hip mobility to feel the difference in your hips from beginning to end of practice.

Using tools from my Body Smart Yoga Shoulder Program, this flow will leave you feeling more aware of proper shoulder engagements for your body while exploring the heart opening postures you love in a new light.
