Juan Gamboa – Yoga Teacher
I started yoga at a time when I suffered extreme bouts of stress and anxiety from a corporate job and graduate school in early 2000. My body was incredibly inflexible and tight at the time. I didn’t come from an athletic or movement background and actually found the idea of sitting/ standing/breathing while on my mat to be pointless. I was in for a HUGE surprise.
Yoga cracked me open and it has been a love affair since. It’s helped me get strong and flexible; but also more aware and thoughtful. There is a deep mind/body connection that my practice allows me to explore unlike any other kind of movement.
Years after first stepping on my mat, I completed my yoga alliance training in 2008 at Sonic Yoga in NYC. After thousands of hours of additional training I found myself teaching all over NYC and around the world – Berlin, Milan, Monaco and India.
I currently teach yoga in NYC at Pure Yoga and Sonic Yoga. I continue to be in love with yoga – the breathing, the inversion work and the deep mind/body connection it fosters. I’m grateful for the community of teachers and students who inspire me everyday through their own journeys on and off the mat.
