ROCKET VINYASA : 5-DAY PRACTICE IMMERSION led by Steve Pyka, July 17-21

WHAT IT IS:

The 5-Day Practice Immersion is designed for any person at any level in their practice who is interested in learning more about Rocket Vinyasa Yoga. Through daily practice and group discussions, your existing concepts of what yoga is and what it is for will be challenged and expanded. Live a life in the week of a Rocket Yogi. See how a simple, gentle, systematic and powerful approach to yoga can transform how you relate to yourself and the world around you.

Schedule will be:
Wednesday (evening practice only): 5:45-7p
Thursday: 9a-7p
Friday: 9a-7:30p
Saturday: 9:30a-5:30p
Sunday: 11:30a-7p

WHO SHOULD TAKE IT:

Nobody should, but anybody can. Of course, it is helpful to already have a consistent yoga practice, but it is not essential. The immersion might light a fire for you! Students and teachers are welcome, but this program does not confer any authority to teach yoga generally or Rocket Yoga specifically. The authority to teach yoga comes from your own experience, dedication and enthusiasm to share what you practice.

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE IT:

We take a common-sense approach to the practice and the philosophy. Yoga need not be complicated. In fact, it's very natural- it's moving and breathing with awareness. Forget about what you can do, have or become through yoga. Yoga is most useful in demonstrating that you have what you seek. Having an enjoyable and familiar yoga routine that you can do anywhere and at anytime will inspire you to develop the consistency and dedication which bring forth the gifts of the practice.

YOUR INSTRUCTOR:

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, Shannon, Lany and April!) who are practicing and sharing the Rocket all over the world.

WHAT IT COSTS AND HOW YOU CAN SIGN UP:

The training costs $995. Early bird is $875. You can reserve a space in the training for $300 by emailing hello@theyogadojorva.com, with the balance due before the early bird deadline of June 1st.  When paying in cash, check or Venmo, early bird pricing is extended to July 8.  Returning students who have completed a 50-hour Rocket training with Asta / The Yoga Dojo can take $420 off the training price and enroll at a discounted rate of $575- the Larry Schultz Special - and can sign up by emailing hello@theyogadojorva.com.
