Gil started practicing Power Yoga in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico in 2009 at the age of 37. Even though he found it quite challenging, he continued practicing, in which began an extensive journey of Yoga. In 2010, Gil took his first Hatha Yoga teacher training at the Rishikesh Yoga Peeth School in India the summer of 2010 for seven weeks. After returning to Puerto Rico he started teaching around the island, including various maximum security prisons where he lead the yoga program for about two years. Yoga helped inmates reduce anxieties, the use of medications, as well as enhanced other aspects of life.
In 2012 Gil began practicing Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and Rocket Vinyasa Yoga under the tutelage of David Kyle (founder of Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga). Gil deepened his practice by training with David (who is an advanced student of the late Larry Schultz, creator of Rocket Yoga System). After completing his training Gil began teaching at David’s studio, Ashtanga Yoga Puerto Rico, in San Juan.
In 2016 Gil relocated to Austin, teaching in various local main studios around the city. Gil continues to lead Rocket Workshops around Texas and other states, as well as provide various other opportunities for yoga practitioners to deepen their practice.
Gil has 500+ hours in teacher trainings, and thousands hours of teaching since 2010, and his philosophy strongly resides that the true learning it’s in the practice itself and that “I’m not your guru.” He works with all levels of practitioners to find their own internal compass for bringing their yoga practice to life.
