Rocket Yoga is a fast-paced practice and has a dynamic flow. It has a structure, and a system of sequences based on repetition consisting of Surya Namaskar, standing poses, seated poses, twists, and bends. This repetition builds core strength, opens up the body, and sets you up for fun yet challenging inversions. While rocket yoga definitely challenges you to step outside your comfort zone you are encouraged modify, making it a practice that improves body awareness and encourages you to listen inwards and adapt to suit your body. After working hard we will always have a long, slow, blissful cool down and allow the body to slow down and tune inwards, finished with a beautiful, relaxing Savasana. Whenever you’re practicing Rocket, you can always expect to work hard, laugh, have fun, and be playful with your practice. I can’t wait to share it with you all on Tuesday evenings!
