Take off with Gil: Rocket Yoga Master Class

Saturday, October 21 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Take Off With Gil

Rocket Yoga it’s rooted in Ashtanga Yoga System using their primary, second and advance series to create Rocket 1,2, & 3.

In this Master Class based on Rocket 3 we are going to work on the legs, hips, shoulders, core drills, arm balances, inversions, backbends and finishing sequence to cool off. It’s a fast paced rhythm to promote our cardio in a non-heated room to create our own heat, be prepared to sweat, do what you can, go with the flow, breath and have fun.

About Gil

Searching for a healthier lifestyle, Gil Perez started practicing yoga in Puerto Rico in 2009 at the age of 37. Gil originally found yoga to be both difficult and painful, but he stuck with because it also brought him a sense of peace. He began training to become a yoga teacher in Rishikesh Yog Peeth, India, in the summer of 2010. Shortly after, he returned to Puerto Rico and started teaching Hatha Yoga while practicing Ashtanga Yoga and Rocket Yoga under the tutelage of David Kyle. Gil’s primary personal practice and teaching
methods now center around Ashtanga and Rocket Yoga.

Gil then taught yoga in several maximum security prisons with the Correctional Department of Puerto Rico, where he led the yoga program for inmates for two years. The program was designed to help reduce inmates’ impulsive behaviors, and to encourage empathy in order to reduce the likelihood of recidivism.

In 2016, he relocated to Austin, where he currently teaches classes and workshops at Yoga Yoga, Treehouse Yoga, Wildheart Yoga, Bikram Yoga East Austin, and Stretch. He has also conducted Rocket Yoga workshops and special classes at Wanderlust Yoga and Yoga Vida in Austin, Casa Yoga in Laredo, Bikram Yoga Richardson and Second Side Yoga in Dallas, Hot Box Yoga in El Paso, and assisted Gianna Purcell’s Rocket Teacher Training at 105F in Chicago.

Gil is eager to expand his teaching practice. He can adapt his curriculum to individuals or groups at any level from Restorative to Beginning Hatha to Ashtanga and/or Rocket Yoga.
