Our Preparation For Rocket vinyasa classes are dynamic, but accessible and fun sequences with lots of modifications if you’re still finding your way and even more if you’re wanting to extend and deepen your practice.
Rocket Yoga is a series of sequences which are in essence a blend of the Primary, Intermediate and Third series of ashtanga yoga. Described as the original form of power yoga, these sequences were developed in the late 80s/early 90s by Larry Schultz, a disenchanted ashtanga devotee, but it wasn’t until the mid 90s that they were labelled “The Rocket”. Schultz was touring with the band The Grateful Dead as their yoga teacher when he was asked what type of yoga he was teaching. When he didn’t have an answer, it was Bob Weir from the band who is reputed to have “I know, we’ll call it The Rocket!” When Larry asked why, Bob replied “because it gets you there faster!”
