Rocket is based on Krishnamacharya’s sequencing, but altered to build more heat for the colder western climates and western bodies, it allows modifications so the beginner and advanced can fly.
There are many rocket sequences which focus on different tempos and areas of the body. Rocket 1 is similar to the seated portion of the Astanga primary series, but includes many arm balance and navasana to handstand transitions, some 2nd and 3rd series asana for those interested.
It is a fun, feel good, open minded and dedicated system of Tristana which allows freedom and creativity externally and balancing the focus and disciplne internally. These sequences will be 75min-90min.
This is a 50hr training designed as continuing education for those who have already completed a 200hr teacher training. We will focus on practical application of training personal practice, practice teaching and hands on adjusting.
Our Handstand training is how we train integrity, directly from the legendary Gymnastic Bodies method. This takes the athlete from wrist and shoulder preparation to core strengthening, handstand, middle splits, press handstand, backbending and one handed handstand using tested method of progressions for all levels.
