Rocket Yoga is an Ashtanga Yoga System practice based on breath, bandha and drishti, but it can be deeper and more inclusive than the traditional Ashtanga Yoga practice itself. Larry Schultz, the creator of the Rocket Yoga system, combined first, second and third series of Ashtanga Yoga and sequenced the poses around the joints of the body. The Rocket sequence encourages play and offers modifications of traditional poses. The Rocket practice encourages a smooth unbroken rhythm of breath and movement, and as it may appear to be a very physical practice it is actually leading us on a path of self-realization. As a fast paced dynamic flow, it features intensity, heat & resilience by engaging in a series of standing & seated poses, twists, bends & inversions. The Rocket, as the name indicates, gets you there faster. The Rocket sequences leave you with the feeling of being stronger, lighter and more flexible. Sweating is encouraged to purify and reshape your body. Rocket has different sequences ( Rocket 1, 2 and 3) and they can be adapted for different levels.
Rocket Yoga at Eclipse inspires students to experiment with the next step of their practice & enhance bodily confidence & control while honing their mental & emotional resilience.
