Rocket Yoga was founded by the late Larry Schultz as a way to make Ashtanga accessible to the west. He created the 3 beloved Rocket sequences we know today while on tour with the Grateful Dead. Bob Weir coined it the Rocket because "it gets you there faster" We practice Rocket in three set sequences that begin to become fluid with practice. The Rocket routines renew energy and vitality in the body by working directly on the joints and stimulating all of our bodies system.
Larry designed this system of postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary and Intermediate series. Larry designed these 3 sequences to invigorate and stegnthen students with advanced postures while still staying accessible through modifications and practicing acceptance of the bodies present abilities. While a modification of Ashtanga, Rocket still embodies the core values and teachings of Ashtanga Vinyasa.
Ashtanga Yoga is a system of 6 set series, each progressing upon the previous. Ashtanga is the mother of all flow styles seen today. It is known as the 8 limb path of yoga.
Beginning with Primary series, known as yoga chikitsa, or yoga therapy. When we develop a consistent practice in Ashtanga we begin to purify the body, organs and lymphatic system. We build strength, increase flexibility and range of motion by focusing on deep forward folds and hip openers.
Join for our Mysore mornings! This is the traditional way to learn the Ashtanga System, named after Mysore India, where the practice originated. Students receive one on one instruction within the group. Arrive anytime with opening chant at 6:00 am. This class is not LED by an instructor which allows your instructors to help each student. This is the easiest way to learn Ashtanga. We have sheets available to use.
Modern Vinyasa Flow is also born out of the Ashtanga Vinyasa System.
Vinyasa sequences are crafted with care by teachers using intelligent sequencing. Each class is unique and specific the individual teacher.
Vinyasa means, to place in a special way and like Ashtanga, Rocket and Power yoga, Vinyasa links breath to movement. To take a vinyasa class means you will link poses with a vinyasa, which is moving through chaturanga (low push up) up dog and down dog, creating a class that moves, breathes and flows.
