Reverence and The Rocket

Rocket Yoga Training

"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

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.
