Introduction to The Rocket®
Rocket Ashtanga Vinyasa is a style developed by Larry Schultz, a dedicated student of the founder of Ashtanga yoga – Patthabi Jois.
Larry developed Rocket to make the Ashtanga system more accessible to the western body. There is less focus on deep knee flexion (lotus poses) and more focus on strengthening the deep core in a functional and therapeutic way.
The Rocket sequences are set routines that offer a foundation for creativity to be built upon. Rocket draws inspiration from pilates, calisthenics, and modern functional understanding of the body.
The Rocket Sequences (1,2&3) are full of forward folds, back bends, spinal twists, hip openers, and core strengthening exercises to create a well-balanced and uplifting sequence of postures that opens the body and clears the mind.
It is a fun and challenging flow with preparation for handstands and arm balances throughout.
