Type of Event
December 7 at Kapana Yoga. A two hour rocket class in the morning and a three hour inversion, arm balance, transition workshop in the afternoon.
Larry Schultz created the Rocket routine, a series of postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga intermediate series, to renew energy and vitality in the body.
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. Full of back bending and spinal twisting, this uplifting sequence of postures has gained global recognition as a feel-good experience which opens the body and clears the mind. The Rocket breaks through areas of tension and energy blockage, combating tendencies towards stagnancy and resistance in the body. Frequent hand stands and arm balances keep the energy level high and encourage students to connect to their inner power and change their world view.
The playful and upbeat Rocket routine is the perfect counter to the soothing forward bending of the Primary Series. As a part of a weekly schedule, this routine creates an energy peak in the cyclic rhythms of the practice. Fun and accessible to beginners and all levels, Rocket systematically works the whole body, creating inner and outer balance.
