Juan Sierra is an Advanced Certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher and a Mentor for Jivamukti Yoga Teacher Trainings Global. Juan was born in Peru and raised in New York City, where he came to Yoga through a friend and within the frenetic pace here, found this to be the turning point in his life. For Juan his practice is the embodiment of the peeling away of the layers of avidya (illusion, ignorance) and always to find compassion for all beings. His classes are filled with “crisp” humor and endearing humility, combined with skillful hands-on assists and a thoughtful choice of music.
Juan offers a witty yet challenging practice that strives to inspire and empower: giving students tools to consciousness development and the ability to balance the challenges of everyday life. He is currently living in Berlin, and as a visiting teacher at SOUK NYC, we see him in his home city often. Juan is eternally grateful to his Teachers who have influenced him: David Swenson, Sharon Gannon, David Life, and his mentor, Rima Rani Rabbath.
