The Rocket was devised by an American called Larry Schultz of “It’s Yoga, San Francisco” and he created the Rocket Routines, a series of postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga primary and intermediate series as pioneered by Sri Pattabhi Jois.
The perfect marriage of tempo and sequence, these advanced routines are appropriate for all levels of students. This vibrant routine is called the “Rocket” because, “it gets you there faster.” The Rocket is designed to wake up the nervous system and feed it the precious prana it craves while promoting a spirit of change and freedom in the practice.
The sequences develop strength and openness, and freedom on and off the mat with the focus on linking movement to the breath to create a dynamic vinyasa flow. As well as creating an energetic, cardiovascular workout that strengthens the body, develops the core, increases flexibility and improves balance and posture, the grounding routine brings calmness and clarity to the mind.
Don’t let the word ‘Rocket’ scare you, Dharna can modify and assist students from beginner’s to advanced level, so try it out!!!!! All you need is the motivation and a mat.
