Rocket Vinyasa Days of the Week Theory and Practice

To meet the demands of modern day life some routines can be done is as little as 20 minutes while others can take up to 120 minutes. In addition to traditional yoga poses we’ve incorporated more cross training to improve your strength and deep stretches to improve your flexibility in the asanas. The Rocket is the purest form of Yoga Bootcamp. It will reshape your body and your life. The Rocket has been designed to be practiced according to a weekly schedule as follows:

Sunday - Primary Series (or Modified Primary Series)
The traditional elongating poses

Monday - Rocket 1
Known as the “Long and Strong” sequence, the focus is on the legs and building a strong foundation for the week

Tuesday -  Rocket 2
This sequence focuses on backbends, core and arms

Wednesday - Rocket 2
Revisiting this sequence, perhaps practicing deeper variations

Thursday - Primary or Rocket 1
Soothe your body with slower forward bending practice.

Friday - Rocket 3
Create a strong ending to your week by incorporating elements of both Rocket 1 and Rocket 2. This sequence has most poses of any rocket sequence.

Saturday - Day of rest

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.
