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.

In 2016, he relocated to Austin, where he currently teaches. 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.

About Patrick & Sara

Patrick McCleaf and Sara “Bear” Gruss have been practicing and teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga for over 15 years of combined experience. They’ve been blessed to learn from teachers such as David Kyle, Faith Simecca, Marie-Belle Perez Rivera, Claudia Paredez, David Robson, David Keil, Kino McGregor, Tim Feldman, Dharma Mittra, and a litany of other teachers and practitioners.

While they share a similar practice, their varied perspectives and applications vary, providing students with a well rounded and holistic experience to Ashtanga Yoga. Their knowledge and application of Ashtanga yoga is both “Traditional” and “Progressive”. In their approach, students will learn and refine the rules to go beyond them.
