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 recognise many of the postures. The class is aimed at intermediate/advanced practitioners, but everyone is welcome as modifications will be offered.
