Stronger Austin Participant Spotlight: Arnoldo

Stronger Austin is activating the Austin community with one goal: health for all. We believe that every neighborhood in Austin should have easy access to health and wellness programs. What’s one of the best parts of Stronger Austin? Our amazing participants like Arnoldo!  Arnoldo attends our Friday morning yoga class at Dove Springs at 9:30 am led by our ever-inspiring yogi, Linda Natera. She leads our free, bilingual yoga classes offered at both Dove Springs and Montopolis Recreation Center (Tuesday’s at 6:30 pm). Here’s more on Arnoldo!

Q | How long have you attended this class?
A | About a year.

Q | How do you get yourself to workout and stay healthy on a daily basis, and what is some advice to give others to do the same?

A | Probably coconut water, with lots of electrolytes.

Q | How have your class instructors influenced you throughout your time with Stronger Austin?
