Rocket Yoga was created in the 80s by Larry Schultz, who was a direct student of Pattabhi Jois, the creator of Ashtanga Yoga. After studying with Pattabhi for seven years, Larry created his own style of ‘Power Yoga’.* Whilst on tour with the Grateful Dead as their private yoga teacher, Bob Weir said to Larry that the system should be called ‘The Rocket’, “because it gets you there faster”.
Weir was probably referring to the fast paced, high energy, core intensive nature of Rocket Yoga. Rocket places an emphasis on uddiyana bandha (core) strengthening which enables practitioners to access arm balances and inversions more easily. It is rooted in Ashtanga Yoga, so Ashtanga practitioners will recognize many of the postures. The class challenges all levels of practitioner, modifications will be offered.
Roll and Release:
A body-mind centered class to help open and release the connective tissue (fascia) in the body in a direct way. Utilizing props such as massage balls, blocks and mats in commonly congested areas of the body also known as trigger points helps to restore fluidity to day to day movements, while calming and bringing the mind to the current moment and space. Discover some powerful tools to relax and renew that are simple and for everyone!
Vinyasa is a breath-synchronized flow. A well paced class that connects movements with breath and works every inch of your body.

In Taoist philosophy, the qualities of Yin are dark, calm, passive and deep. Based on these principles, Yin Yoga uses passive postures held for longer periods of time to allow for deep opening in the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and spine. Meditation may be used. Yin Yoga can be practiced by any level of student.
