New Youtube Video

by Trevor Aung Than on January 9, 2014

Happy New Year conditioners!

To celebrate, I recently filmed a video with efit30 about Tensegrity – essentially how our body derives structure and strength.  Take a look!

What is Tensegrity?

A reminder I am available for physiotherapy and rehabilitation consults.  Contact me directly on +61452 614 775.  I am available most weekday afternoons in Bayswater and West Perth.

Ever since I could remember I’ve wanted to have my very own article published in an ACTUAL magazine. Not some two-bit school newsletter that I edited myself (no intentional disrepect to school newsletter editors) but in a proper magazine. And in the last few months I have had just that. My mum is super proud.

My first article was published earlier in the year in the Australian Fitness Network magazine which is for members of the Australian Fitness Network, the leading source of information, education and events in the Australian fitness industry. The article featured interviews I conducted with cast and crew of the Cirque du Soleil show OVO while they were on tour in Sydney. Click here for a PDF of the article.

The other article I had published was for the Australian Physiotherapy Association’s (APA) publication inTouch Magazine on the Anatomy Trains. The article was a follow-up up to a clinical lecture I held at the APA here in Perth late last year. The article was just published a couple of months ago. Click here for a PDF.

So if you’re working on that school newsletter and have a deadline approaching…don’t fret. Who knows what you may accomplish in the future? Wall Street Journal? The Lancet? People Magazine? You may just make your mum super proud.

The day Usher came to the circus

December 6, 2012

Share Back in July, 2010 I exited the elevator for what I thought was going to be a normal day at work. Well, as normal as a day could get when you work in the circus! As I passed the communal Green Room, I noticed a man sitting on the sofa who looked familiar. I […]

Advice for Beginners

November 22, 2012

Share My brother, Gavin, recently published this comic Advice for Beginners illustrating a quote by Ira Glass. It was a great reminder. Every great storyteller, painter, musician, superhero, yogi or circus artist would have sucked at some point but they stuck at it until they didn’t suck anymore. Author David Kadavy writes about it in […]

The photographer was Sarah Enticknap and Sarah got some […]

To warm-up and move the body efficiently and effectively we have to take into account the structure of what we are: we’re not made of concrete or mortar, […]
