50-hour Rocket Training, July 24-28
ROCKET VINYASA: THE SCIENCE OF SEQUENCING 5-DAY ADVANCED ROCKET TRAINING
WHAT IT IS:
The Rocket Training is an 5-day immersion in which you will:
Practice and learn the classic Rocket I and Rocket II sequences
Understand the philosophy and voice of a Rocket Vinyasa class
Focus on alignment, arm balances, inversions and transitions
Gain the ability to use the master Rocket sequences to share a class with anyone
Clarify your purpose for practicing
WHO SHOULD TAKE IT:
Anyone can take the Rocket Training, but those who will benefit most are:
Consistent practitioners who feel their vinyasa practice has hit a plateau
Experienced teachers who feel their instruction could use a little more focus and structure
Those new to Rocket, but not to yoga, who wish to complement their existing knowledge
Home practitioners looking for a thorough, intelligent system of yoga practice
WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE IT:
You are intelligent. You are dedicated. You suspect yoga has something more to offer beyond being burned out in variations on lunges and dharma talks from people no more enlightened than yourself. The generic vinyasa mentality declares that we constantly listen to a teacher outside of ourselves who knows more than us. Those who practice the Rocket are guided by a more trustworthy source within.
Steve Pyka, a direct student of Larry Schultz, the creator of Rocket Yoga, opened AstaYoga with Rene Henley in 2009 as a place where people could find a genuine sense of strength, peace and community. Together, they have over 20 years of experience teaching and have trained hundreds of people (including Adrian, Lauren, Erin, and Shannon!) who are practicing and sharing the Rocket all over the world.
WHAT IT COSTS AND HOW YOU CAN SIGN UP:
The training costs $995, but nobody pays that because they sign up early for $795. You can reserve a space in the training for $300, with the balance due before the early bird deadline. Early bird pricing is available through 5/31. When paying in cash or check, early bird pricing is extended to 7/1. Payment includes training, and all materials distributed in training.
Training Hours are 9-7p Monday through Friday.

the practice. the workout. with heather palmer, august 19 + 20, 12-2pm
The Practice. Saturday, 8.19. 12-2pm.
Heather will lead a two hour workshop that moves through asana, pranayama, and meditation. The Practice will include postures to strengthen and access the back body, specifically the upper spine, like puppy pose, camel, locust and full locust. It will transition toward releasing the back body and lengthening through the spine in forward folds and deep hip openers. It moves seamlessly through extremes of backbends and forward bends, hip openers and inversions. The movement and transitions will be based on imagination: you will learn new transitions and be challenged by new postures. While all aspects of the physical body will be accessed, the concentration is the comprehensive practice, a unified view of the body as a complex, connected system. All levels are welcome, and Heather will provide variations for practitioners from beginner to advanced, in every area of the body.
$35 by 8.10. $40 after. To sign up, click here.
The Workout. Sunday, 8.20. 12-2pm.
“The Workout” is designed to broaden and challenge the yoga practitioner from rigid thinking and rigid, prescribed movement. It consists of high repetition movement that strengthens minor and often overlooked muscles in the body. It surprises the practitioner because he/she never knows what is coming--this places a high value on one’s own intelligence and ability to adapt. One example of such a movement would be a low lunge twist to lizard, but instead of doing this movement once and moving on, “The Workout” returns to the movement for twenty repetitions or more, allowing the mindbody to remain in one place long enough to soak the movement in. In such physically demanding situations, the mind sometimes enters a meditative state because it must stop producing its own internal stimuli. Think “runner’s high.” This is a workshop for those whose yoga practice leaves them a little bored or feels a little too easy.

Fall 2017 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training
The Yoga Dojo’s 200-hour Vinyasa Teacher Training is a 200-hour level program certified through Yoga Alliance. All students will be able to register with Yoga Alliance for the RYT-200 designation upon completion of the program. Students with existing RYT status with Yoga Alliance will be able to use the training for CEUs. Required areas of study include, but are not limited to: Teaching Methodology, Anatomy & Physiology, Yoga Philosophy, Techniques Training, and Practicum.
Although, this particular training reflects the practices, principles, and philosophy of Rocket Yoga, it does not certify you as a Rocket Yoga instructor.

The Yoga Dojo TT will begin on Friday, September 22, 2017 and run through December 17, 2017 on a Friday to Sunday format. There will be three weekends throughout the training that we will not meet (10/6, 10/27, and 11/24).
