Faces of Santa Barbara by Patricia Houghton Clarke
Arturo Peal, BODY AWARENESS EDUCATOR
He who conquers others is strong; he who conquers himself is mighty” – Lao-tsu, Tao Te Ching
Most of us are aware that the world of body awareness has boomed in Santa Barbara over the past several years. There were once very few classes to choose from; we are now offered a plethora of interesting and beneficial options to help us maintain our physical, spiritual and emotional health.
Regal, soft-spoken, gentle, and powerful, Arturo has shared his talent for interpreting “complex scientific concepts” for over 20 years with many local students of Yoga, Anatomy, Kinesiology and Therapeutic Touch. Holding a Master’s Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, this multi-talented teacher works with a variety of methodologies. With a B.F.A in Music and a 4th degree Black Belt in Karate, Arturo incorporates music and martial arts in his healing classes. Along with collaborator Cheri Clampett, he has also created the curriculum and teaching of the Therapeutic Yoga Teacher Trainings.
A special thank you to all of the dedicated and talented people in Santa Barbara who devote themselves to the community’s well being. For more information, go to: http://bodystudies.com/
