Lucien grew up in a family of artists and musicians around the world, he was deeply immersed in classical music and had the opportunity to learn a few languages early on. In his teens, an uncle who had travelled in India introduced him to yoga and vipassana and among these newfound practices his interest in the metaphysical led him to research of shamanism and native practices of his father’s motherland, Mexico.
When he discovered ashtanga yoga he was hooked and it became his daily sadhana. Study of yoga and meditation led him to south east asia, he spent a particularly long time in India, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Bali. There, over the next few years he studied thai massage with Pichest Boonthume, Yoga with Iain Gryzak and eventually found his main influence in teachers Eileen Hall in Sydney and Sharath Jois in Mysore both of whom he had the opportunity to study with and assist over a long period.
It is with great joy and pleasure that Lucien now looks to transmit any knowledge this life path has given him in the most honest and authentic way possible giving students the space to find the wisdom in themselves to improve their lives as it has slowly done for him through dedication, experience and practice. http://www.lucienashtanga.com/
