DT 062: That Functional Feeling with Hiro Landazuri

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
