Rocket Vinyasa Yoga is Dynamic and Accessible
Rocket Yoga is a style of yoga developed by Larry Schultz in San Francisco during the 1980s. Rocket Yoga is rooted in the practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa. It is composed of poses from the Primary and Intermediate Series of Ashtanga, as well as key postures from the 3rd and 4th series.
Rocket is a dynamic, fast-paced flow!
Schultz's yoga was first called "Rocket Yoga" by Bob Weir of The Grateful Dead, because Weir said, "It gets you there faster."
Rocket Yoga is a dynamic and fast-paced flow of yoga. The structure maintains that of Ashtanga Vinyasa, consisting of a warm up (Surya Namaskar A + B), and then a variety of standing poses and seated poses. Rocket utilizes moving with the breath, so doing one key movement on an inhale and the next on the exhale. This keeps the practice moving quickly and steadily.
Another main aspect of Rocket Vinyasa is the "Art of Modification." Students are encouraged to make their own interpretation of the traditional asana and can remove or modify binding postures that can tend to cause students to get stuck in the traditional series. It allows the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method to be more accessible by all practitioners. It also allows for greater exploration of deeper expressions of a posture.
Turn things upside down
Rocket puts you on your head.
Another fun aspect of Rocket is the exploration of inversions. With a series of headstands, arm balancing and handstands, Rocket turns things upside down. It starts with some basic accessible inversions and gives an opportunity to explore more as the practitioner is ready.
