Gibran`s yogic path started in Mexico in 2000 with Baptiste Marceau and led him to regularly practice in India, first in Bangalore and then, in October 2005, in Mysore at the KPJAYI (Sri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute) with Sri K Pattabhi Jois and Sharath Jois Rangaswamy. Having found his true teachers, he has been returning there ever since for several months a year, currently practicing third series.
As a direct student of Sri K Pattabi Jois and Sharath Rangaswami his aim is to keep up the lineage alive and true to its origin. In March 2009, Gibran was given the Authorization and Blessings to teach Astanga Yoga by the KPJAYI as the first Mexican teacher. In July-August 2010 he successfully completed Sharath Rangaswami’s Teacher Training and was invited to assist him in December 2010 in Mysore. Gibran has since been going repeatedly to India to continue his practice with Sharath and has been teaching classes, workshops and retreats in different countries in Europe, Mexico and Latin America.
