Step 1: Combine pomegranate juice, agave syrup, vanilla bean and seeds (extract or vanilla bean paste), cinnamon stick (if using), and salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer; add prepared pears. The liquid should cover the pears.
Step 2: Reduce heat to a low simmer, and poach the pears until tender, about 20 minutes. Carefully remove pears from the pan onto a plate.
Step 3: Return liquid to medium heat and reduce by one half to the consistency of maple syrup, about 15 minutes. Stir lemon juice and adjust seasoning.
Step 4: Slice poached pear halves in 1/4-inch wide slices, leaving them connected at the top of the pear. Place 1/4 cup of the drained yogurt in a mound on a chilled plate. Fan the sliced pear leaning against the yogurt. Drizzle with the reduced sauce and sprinkle with chopped almonds.
