Continuing Education in the Rocket System developed by Larry Schultz 

After you have completed a 200 hour training preferably in our foundations program you can continue your education in the Rocket System. Rocket trainings are very specialized and only a few studios in the world are allowed to facilitate these trainings. Rocket Training will give you a better understanding of more sequences and transitions. You will experience cross training and strength training to help you feel more confident in inversions as well as learn the "Larry Schultz Philosophy" of why the Rocket works for beginners as well as advanced students. By the end of 5 days you will feel more strong and confident as an yoga instructor

Module 1 and Module 2 Training can earn you up to 150 hours in the Rocket system. If Rocket is your passion and you would like to set up your own teacher training, we can help you do that too with our 500 hour program.

Often people walk into It’s Yoga with worry, stress and tiredness written all over their faces but when they leave, they show the effects of Ashtanga Yoga: they feel better and look better, lighter, freer, more relaxed and energized. This is why to me, teaching Ashtanga Yoga is a kind of self-realization; every time I lead class I, as a teacher, grow and express the insights of my own yoga. I see people take in the practice from various angles and develop, change and transcend their limitations, realize their possibilities.
