“You are stronger than you think you are” Larry Schultz”
Rocket yoga was designed in the 80s by Larry Schultz, a long-time student of Ashtanga master K. Pattabhi Jois. Ashtanga is strict and requires dedication and discipline to progress from pose to pose and series to series. Larry broke down the rigidity of the Ashtanga system – allowing modifications and blending poses from the different series to create an accessible and smooth practice. Expect strong poses, dynamic transitions and numerous opportunities for play.
Rocket Yoga encourages you to take variations and modifications to suit your own body, your practice doesn’t have to be advanced to join this workshop – Graham will offer modifications throughout and the goal is to explore the poses in a safe environment.
• Focus on Your Yoga Practice
o Rocket Yoga isn’t a competition, so just focus on your yoga practice.
• Practice Makes Perfect
o Don’t be disheartened if you can’t complete a pose today. It takes times and yes, patience!
• Remember to Breathe
o Slow down when you need too, and just remember to breathe.
This session is open to men with some experience of yoga, but would not be suitable for a complete beginner to yoga.
