Hiro Landazuri is a yoga teacher and photographer with a background in medicine. He 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.
Hiro has since gained a following for his detailed pose breakdowns and anatomy-focused approach to teaching, which come through in detailed alignment cues that are tailored to students' different bodies. He believes yoga sparks self-empowerment and aims to help students learn who they are and love who they are on and off the mat.
