Thanks for checking out our blog! Do you know that Yoga ah has been offering yoga teacher training since 2007? That is over a decade of experience training yoga instructors.It also means we have over a decade of experience instructing all levels of students.

Also Yoga ah is one of the only yoga studios in the nation that offers the Rocket system. Here are some popular questions that new students ask, we hope this is helpful to you.

What does that mean? What is the Rocket system?
Well the Rocket system offers different routines that focus on different parts of the body. In each Rocket class you know what type of poses you will be working on. ( see our class discriptions ) 

I want to take teacher training but am new to yoga, do you think I am ready?
Yes, taking the teacher training will give you a better understanding of the history of traditional yoga and yoga in the United States. Also our Foundations Training in Ashtnaga and Rocket is made for Beginners so you can learn proper alignment and breathing techniques that will allow you to bulid you practice slowly without getting injured. 

What is Rocket Training?
Rocket Trainings are 5 day intensives that are designed for yogis that are already teaching yoga. They will help you further your understanding of Rocket sequences and transitions. Rocket Training is considered Continued Education in Yoga.

Can you take Rocket classes if you can't "do" the poses?
YES!! the Rocket is made for ALL levels of students, in the system you build up your strength by using lots of fun modifactions and taking classes in a Montessori style, meaning all levels of students practice together and support each other.

I am new to yoga, which classes should I start with?
We would recommened any classes that say, Beginners, these classes are offered, Monday nights at 7:00pm, Tuesday nights at 5:30pm, Wednesdays evenings at 6:30pm and Saturday mornings at 10:30am.

What is the difference between Rocket and Bottle Rocket?
The Bottle Rocket is a shorter version of a full Rocket class and is completed in 50 minutes, and full Rocket class is 75 minutes long.

How many days a week do people come to the studio to take classes?
Originally the Ashtnga practice was a 6 day a week practice, however you will see great benefits if you practice 2-3 times per week. We also offer unlimited yoga passes that allow you to come as many times as you want during the week. Some students come 5 days a week, while others only take one clas a week. The most important thing to remeber is to listen to your body and find what works for you.

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.
