Yoga Instructor - Ashtanga Mysore
Juan earned a degree in Athletic Training from the University of Texas at Austin in 2016. His clinical work on- and off-the-field with UT and St. Edward's University involved working on athletes from a range of disciplines, including: track and field, volleyball, swimming, diving, football, baseball, softball, soccer, tennis and golf.
He is certified through the Board of Certification and licensed in the state of Texas to provide sports medicine support for athletes and the general population with a focus on emergent care, orthopedic evaluation of musculo-skeletal injury and illness, therapeutic interventions and rehabilitation guidance. As an allied health professional he is able to collaborate with physicians and physical therapists to ensure continuity of care for clients who are seeking to transition from rehab to a more active lifestyle and athletes who are seeking to return to play.
Juan obtained his personal training certification through the American Council on Exercise in 2010. In 2003 he trained in massage through the Lauterstein-Conway School of massage in Austin. He has practiced yoga since the late 90's and has been teaching yoga for 15+ years with a focus on applying a therapeutic perspective of yoga for diverse populations from children to seniors and the sedentary to athletic.
Personal Training sessions with Juan integrate research and evidence-based practices tailored to each client's personal goals while also providing individualized programs that address imbalances that have been acquired through the demands of sport, daily life, injury or illness.
In addition to his work in fitness and teaching yoga he also works as a medical scribe for an orthopedic surgeon and a plastic surgeon at Austin Bone and Joint Clinic.
His other interests include being active outside as much as possible, exploring and studying movement, reading about history, spending time with a small group of close friends and family, and honing his skills as a DJ.
