The “Rocket” is a fun and exciting approach to the traditional Ashtanga Yoga of Pattabhi Jois, developed in the early 80’s in San Francisco by the legendary badass of yoga Larry Shultz. Each Rocket series aims at remixing postures of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th series traditional Ashtanga Yoga. It was called the rocket as it was said to “get you there faster” into the zone or what many refer to as flow state. In this state you lose yourself, your conditioned way of living and relating with your body and the world around you, the mind begins to quiet down and you become fully absorbed in the moment. In the moment there is no such thing as success or failure there is just sensation and pure experience and consciousness, nothing to hold you back or to force you forward, inhibitions turn into innate wisdom and “knowing” and boundaries begin to expand. Boundaries do not expand through force rather we become powerful when we begin to accept our “weaknesses” as our “strengths” as they become our teacher and our guide within each pose and breath. Each of the “difficult” poses will be broken down into smaller movements so that we may navigate boundaries sensitively, committing to the process, dissolving ego and straddling the edge between challenge and ease where growth occurs. In this flow class we will draw inspiration from the original Rocket sequences and also integrate what Empowered Yoga is know best for: intelligent sequencing, “workshopping” challenging postures, refinement and oh yeah lets not forget FUN.
This class is open to EVERYBODY.
