Aaron (@movement_yoda) works at Apiros, a movement culture based in Santa Cruz, California, where he connects with athletes from developmental level to the professional.
Aaron graduated from the University of California Davis with a degree in Genetics before going on to earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Azusa Pacific University. He then did a 9-month residency program in Vallejo California, specialising in Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). Aaron taught residents and worked with people suffering from neurological insults, including stroke, traumatic brain and spinal cord injury as a faculty member for 5 years.
In 2015, Aaron began working in the orthopaedic and athletic setting and expanded his skills to include Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilisation (DNS) and the Anat Baniel Method.
In this conversation, Aaron talks about his unique approach to movement, what has led to it, and how he goes about helping his athletes to reach their maximum potential.
