IAM1740 – Pioneer Uses LYT Method to Offer Yoga Training
Podcast Interview with Lara Heimann
Why it was selected for “CBNation Architects”: In this episode of the CEO Podcasts, host Gresham Harkless interviews Lara Heimann, an international yoga pioneer, and physical therapist who has redefined the modern practice of yoga through her comprehensive LYT Method. Lara emphasizes smart alignment, functional movement, and spiritual wellness in her practice and offers online daily classes and robust online yoga teacher training, in addition to leading in-person workshops, training, and masterclasses internationally.
Lara discusses her journey to entrepreneurship, which began with her passion for identifying a gap in the teaching of yoga and wanting to spread good movement knowledge. She started teacher training and eventually created her own method based on a physical therapy background. Her success is measured by the number of people she has been able to empower with her message and the positive feedback she receives from them.
During the interview, Lara shares her CEO hack, which is taking care of herself and emphasizing daily habits and lifestyle. She also shares her CEO nugget, which is believing in oneself and accepting that not everybody will agree with you. Especially being a “people pleaser” and how that can affect hiring and how she put her heart into it. Lara defines being a CEO as being a leader and the brain of the business.
Overall, the podcast provides insights into Lara's LYT Method and offers valuable advice for entrepreneurs and business owners looking to build a community and serve their clients with white-glove customer service.

Hello, hello, hello. This is Gresh from the I AM CEO podcast and I appreciate you listening to this episode. If you have been listening this year, you know that we hit 1600 episodes at the beginning of this year. We're doing something a little bit different where we're repurposing our favorite episodes around certain categories or topics or as I like to call them, the business pillars that we think are going to be extremely impactful for CEOs, entrepreneurs, and business owners, and what I like to call the CB nation architects who are looking to level up their organization.
This month we are focused on our greatest asset: talent management and hiring. Think from great resignation to the great renovation. And if you disagree with me, maybe these episodes might be especially for you. Life and especially business has changed. It is forced those that are within organizations to look differently at talent and how it's being managed.
When we talk about change, think about it, we have to realize that business as usual is no longer here. And that's evident in attracting and retaining clients but also in setting up people within organizations to succeed. Think onboarding, think DEI- diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. How it is working from home and even going back into the office.
Things are different. In this month we are going to explore these topics by featuring CEO hacks and CEO nuggets, but also interviews that focuses on these changes and how organizations can make sure they care for and attract the most valuable asset, their people. Sit back and enjoy this special episode of the I AM CEO podcast.
