Juan Anguiano
    Juan Anguiano, E-RYT 500, ACE-CPT is dedicated to transmitting the Ashtanga Vinyasa method according to the teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Many years of practice and dedication have affirmed his confidence in the wisdom of learning Ashtanga according to abilities and not the demands of the ego. His teaching style illuminates the importance of setting and accepting limits in the practice so that patterns present throughout Ashtanga are understood and connected into an enjoyable harmony of movement and growth. Juan first experienced yoga as a child when he was introduced to some pranayama techniques to help with severe childhood asthma. He began practicing yoga asana in his late teens and explored various styles of yoga with nationally and internationally known prominent yoga teachers. He experienced Ashtanga Yoga around age twenty-one on his travels in California. Juan is a direct student of Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Rangaswamy and brings more than fifteen years of experience teaching yoga and mentoring and training budding yoga teachers. Juan has established successful Mysore-style programs in Dallas and the first successful Mysore-style program in Austin, Texas at Castle Hill Fitness in 2005. Juan became more dedicated to other forms of fitness when he purchased his first Pinarello road bike from the Castle Hill Cycles and began triathlon training with Castle Hill personal trainers. Juan’s dedication to embracing other forms of fitness led him to obtain his personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise in 2010. He is a firm believer in integrating yoga and western styles of fitness. He is currently pursuing a degree in Kinesiology through the University of Texas at Austin. He is working toward a degree as an Athletic Trainer which will allow him to specialize in preventing, diagnosing and treating muscle and bone injuries and illnesses for athletes and the general population. His professional goals are to further synthesize the practice of yoga, sports and general wellness through practice, scientific research, and study.
