Rocket Training

The original "Rocket" training

Asta Yoga, San Francisco, CA

July 31th - August 4th, 2024


AstaYoga is the home of Rocket Vinyasa in San Francisco, the birthplace of Rocket Yoga. Opened by students of Larry Schultz in 2009, Asta has been hosting and leading Rocket Trainings since 2011 when Larry taught his final training.

The Rocket Training has always been a way for students of Rocket Vinyasa to immerse themselves in the practice beyond the led class. Anyone can take the training, and it is demanding as you choose for it to be. The main prerequisites are curiosity and open-mindedness. Rocket is the next step to vinyasa.

In this intensive Rocket  Vinyasa 5-day immersion, students will explore the principles, techniques, history and philosophy of a modern approach to the Ashtanga Vinyasa method, inspired by the teachings of Larry Schultz. This program is ideal for participants familiar with the Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary and Intermediate series, either through personal practice or a 200-hour Ashtanga-based training. Students will learn about the principles of the Ashtanga practice and how to practice and teach in an inviting and supportive manner.

This is an advanced training for those who have a 200-hour yoga teacher training qualification and want to teach Rocket OR for students who have a solid practice and want to dive deeper into their own practice.
