The Rocket was developed by Larry Schultz in the 90’s while on tour with the Grateful Dead. Larry resequenced the poses from the first, second, and third Ashtanga series and created a new flow with focus on the joints of the body and the days of the week. By doing this, he also created a more holistic approach to a regular Ashtanga practice.
Your body will experience more than 140 poses during one week of consistent Rocket practice, as well as the chance to try arm balances, inversions, and back bend at an earlier stage of your yoga practice. The Rocket is all about leaving your comfort zone, to be creative, and to strengthen your body from the inside out.
