Yoga ah 200 hour training is the foundation for more advanced teachers training offered in our Rocket 500 hour program. Yoga ah is one of the only schools in the country that offers a beginners to advanced training in the Rocket developed by the late Larry Schultz.
Larry, created a system of practice based on a 6 day per week practice schedule that targets different body parts through out the week. This was the inspiration for what Larry would fondly call it "the system". The Rocket is part of a system that offers a wholistic approach to practicing Ashtanga and vinyasa yoga.
Yoga ah offers "the system", in Yoga ah teachers training you will study "the system". One of the first routines that you will study is called MDR or Minimum Daily Requirements which consists of sun salutations from Ashtanga yoga and meditation practice. You will be encouraged to begin a home practice. Then you will begin studying Primary series from Ashtanga yoga, from studying Primary Series you will learn to instruct a modified version that consists of 34 poses. As part of the system you will also learn Bottle Rocket sequencing which is the foundation for Rocket sequences.
Our teachers training will give you the tools to develop a stronger home practice as well give you different routines that you will be able to teach after graduation.
Wow what a year 2016 was! Do you know that Yoga ah will be going into thier 10th year practice and facilatating Rocket and Ashtanga Vinyasa classes in a community setting. Now that is a lot of sun saluatations. This Spring 2017 we are very excited to announce our Spring 8 weekend training. This training will give you a good foundation to insturct a wide range of classes as well as introduce you to the more spiritual aspects of yoga, with the study of the yoga sutras. We are hoping that all the wonderful past graduates will make an appeareance to share thier insites and wisdom.
Yoga ah training is inspired bt the great Larry Schultz aka the yoga man whom developed the Rocket system of weekly practice.You will learn a "system" of routines as well as an oppurtunity to develop and find your voice as an instructor. You will also learn the basics of alignment and "two finger" gentle adjustments.
As we celebrate 10 years of practice this year we want to share the genoristy of yoga and have discounted our training tuition to 1800.00 if paid by March 1st!!
See You on the mat:)
What makes Yoga ah training different than other trainings?
The number one answer is experience. Yoga ah has been offering yoga teachers training for 9 years. During these 9 years we have graduated 100's of students. In the beginning of the training you will learn the history of Ashtanga yoga and the foundation for creating a script. During our training you will be studying specific sequences based in Ashtanga yoga. We will help you develop a personal practice as well as a strong teaching voice.
After training you will have all the tools you need to instruct a wide range of classes from beginners to move advanced.
Other trainings may be recognized by Yoga Alliance as are we but this does not reflect the experience of the studio hosting the training.
We have dropped the price to 2100.00 until September 15th and after that the full price is 2400.00 payment plans are available.
Please email us with your questions. Taking yoga training can be a life changing experience!! Come see for yourself.
Larry was an American yoga instructor. He studied traditional Ashtanga yoga with Pattabi Jois for a number of years and then began instructing in Austin TX and and after that in San Francisco.
He was one of the first yoga instructors to develop a yoga teacher training program and 100’s of yogis traveled to San Francisco every year to learn “the system” as Larry fondly called it.
Larry developed more beginner routines called the MDR or Minimum Daily Requirements and MPS or Modified Primary Series to make Ashtanga yoga suitable to the masses. Later he developed the Rocket while on tour with the Grateful Dead as there private yoga instructor. Named by Bobby Wier the sequences are known to help you progress your practice at a faster rate. Larry taught up into the time of him leaving his body in 2011. Today his most dedicated students continue his teachings.
"This is a humble path"
This is a humble path, the words rang out in our Rocket yoga training circle on the last day. After 5 days of intense asana practice and self-discovery, we all came together to sit in our Rocket circle and talk about, "what is our Rocket?" and what we discovered is the stronger you get on the mat the more humble you become. Humble to be able to practice the asanas, and humble to be able to share your love of the Rocket.
Most people don't know that the other day as I was leading Rocket one, when I spoke the words reverent to my class as they focused their dristi, a flood of love and gratitude swept over me as I remembered my friend and teacher Larry Schultz and everyone that I have met along the way. It just goes on and on, love and being reverent for being in the presence of beautiful people.
For me today, that is my Rocket, being humble as the world opens up its beautiful arms and nurtures me with such an amazing practice. Remember the practice will always give you what you need when you need it, have faith and stay true to your beliefs. In our system, the students become the teachers and the teachers become the students. So I am happy to report our 5 day Rocket yoga training we ALL learned something and we all became stronger, by working together and keeping our dristi focused.
The Rocket will give you the tools to be stronger on and off the mat. The Rocket will teach you how to focus. The Rocket helps us find ourselves and awaken our voice of the inner teacher on and off the mat. Like Larry said, "it keeps us in gear, moving towards our goals". So thank you all for coming together for our 5 day training. I was so happy to hear how many of you loved Cincinnati and found it fun and AFFORDABLE!! That is awesome, I am reverent for being able to share the practice with you and for you all making me a better person.
We all had a good laugh when we talked about how when you come to Rocket training you are really learning how to sweep the floors and light incense!
Our next Rocket 5 day in Cincinnati is July 8th - 12th, spread the word, share the love!! Amber Gean
