Jaka Supriyadi Nata - Wellness Coach and Movement Specialist

Jaka’s journey in fitness and wellness started in 2007 after experiencing difficulty in healing a football injury to his right ligament.

Motivated to recover from this injury, he attended fitness workshops and studied yoga to understand the basics in body anatomy and muscle movement. During this journey he discovered a safe and effective method for the body to recover from trauma. Since then he has continued to grow and update his skillset, eventually becoming a yoga and wellness instructor himself. His unique combination of yoga and fitness make him a unique and very distinctive trainer.

If you’re struggling to recover after a physical or mental trauma or simply want to enhance your body and mind, then Jaka is the right person to help. Fitness and wellness are not merely about looking good on the outside but also about becoming whole as a person inside and out.

Ida Bagus Putu Manuaba Yasa (GUSTU) - Muscle Therapist

Our much-loved wellness coach, Gustu, began his career assisting with and handling health and wellness programs. He had particular experience helping heart attack and stroke patients recovering from loss of mobility. Gustu is also known as one of the Wellness Association leaders in Bali. He also enjoys competitive body building where he represents Bali as well as for Bali martial arts. After his own personal health and fitness journey he decided to join Revivo as part of our wellness team specializing in fitness, movement and muscle therapy.  

Gustu’s Muscle therapy is the massage flow of stiff muscles or problematic blood circulation. These problems potentially arise because of stress, a cold body temperature, lack of sleep or stress and exhaustion.  It can also be caused by incorrect positioning during exercise / fitness or a lack of warm-up. The purpose of doing muscle therapy is to facilitate blood circulation, relax stiff muscles so that the body becomes relaxed. The duration of Muscle Therapy is not necessarily long, depending on the severity of the problem experienced by a person.
