  • Rocket®Yoga ebook
  • Online continuing education exam
The benefits of practicing Rocket yoga are as diverse and numerous as the poses. The poses work on every part of the body, making Rocket yoga ideal for relieving stress; building strength, balance, and flexibility; and stimulating increased consciousness.

Rocket®Yoga: Your Guide to Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa presents the beauty and benefits of Rocket yoga—from its history and philosophy to the sequences and practices unique to its style. This modern style of yoga is rooted in traditional ashtanga but allows for more freedom of movement based on individual anatomy and fosters empowerment through creativity, endurance, and rhythm. The text begins by taking you through nine guided activities to prepare for practice, covering aspects of yoga such as drishtis, bandhas, breathing techniques, and mudras. You’ll then explore the asana library, packed with hundreds of stunning color photographs and detailed instructions for more than 90 poses, consisting of standing, seated, inversion, and rest postures. Nearly every pose includes modifications to adapt the movements to different bodies.

Next, move through the traditional ashtanga series before adding a new dimension to yoga practice with five Rocket yoga series. Each Rocket yoga series has guiding photo sequences and a targeted focus:
  • Rocket I: hip openers, forward bends, and core strengthening exercises
  • Rocket II: backbends, spinal twists, arm balances, and inversions
  • Rocket arms and Rocket legs: poses that build strength and endurance
  • Rocket III: expansion of Rocket I and Rocket II, with twists, forward folds, and balances added
Beyond the sequences, you’ll find teaching tips as well as additional activities and suggestions to customize practice for individuals.

After reading the ebook, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
