Rocket Yoga was developed by Larry Schultz in the 1980’s. It is rooted in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition and takes poses from primary, second, and third series of Ashtanga.
Watch a short introduction to rocket yoga by Larry Schultz here.
Rocket Yoga is a dynamic and fast-paced flow of yoga which will (that’s where the name comes from) „get you there faster“.
The Rocket consists of three fun and freeing sequences of asanas, including several opportunities to attempt inversions and arm balances.
The Rocket allows you to be yourself, to let go of any expectations, and just enjoy the ride.
You will learn about the three main aspects of the practice: the Ujjayi Pranayama (breathing), the Bandhas (energetic closures) and the Drishti (focused gaze). The activation of these three pillars (three points of attention) during the practice is essential to concentrate, to create heat and to redirect the energy. We will focus on the sensations to connect with your inner body and shut the talking mind.
About the teacher_
Marta is certified by the International Yoga Alliance, and teaches Ashtanga Vinyasa and Rocket Yoga® classes. Focusing on the self-realization, the control of the mind, and also on understanding life on its physical, mental and spiritual level.
„My goal as a yoga instructor is to help students to connect with their own breathing, gain body awareness, gain mental and physical strength, flexibility and elasticity.“
Marta is born on Gran Canaria and returned back to the island after a few years of living in England, Barcelona, Madrid and Berlin. Upon returning to the island, her focus became more introspective and she found in Yoga her way to connect with the inner body.
Marta’s Tipp: Come with an open mind. Be ready to discover the best version of yourself. Keep doing your Ashtanga or Vinyasa practice until we meet in Spain.
About the place_
The retreat is taking place in Casa Erica in Andalucia - the beautiful south of Spain. A walk around Casa Erica can be adventurous. You can find an abandoned pool, an old arabic tower and all of a sudden an agitated herd of sheep walks by...
Between the brunch and the afternoon yoga session there is free time. If it is getting too hot, you can freshen up in our pool or 800m down the hill at the beach. Maybe you feel like getting a massage on our beautiful terrace or order a Smoothie or a Snack.
