Body and Soul Connection of Yoga Healing with Lara Rubin Alexiou on Awake 2 Oneness Radio, September 25, 2015.

"I began practicing Hot Yoga two months ago and met an incredible women, Lara Alexiou.  She is the owner of Steamtown Hot Yoga in Scranton, PA.       What is so amazing about Lara is she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2003 at the age of 25 and at that time she could barely walk up a flight of stairs.  The reason Lara's story resonates so deeply with me is because my daughter was also diagnosed with MS the exact same year when she was only 23 years old," Caroline Chang, Awake 2 Oneness Radio host. 
 


In 2015, Lara Alexiou was recognized in the Top 25 Women in Business by The National Association of Women Business Owners and the Northeast PA Business Journal.
