Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga & The Rocket®
(Individual & Small Groups)
At all It’s Yoga Studios worldwide – we honor each student’s potential and trust that the practice will support each individual in growing at the pace that best serves them.
It’s Yoga was the first to develop a progressive practice designed for Western Practicitioners out of the much loved and admired Eastern Ashtanga Yoga practice. It’s Yoga dissolved the heirarchy of postures and invites beginners and advanced practitioners to practice in the same room heightening the energy and inspiration in the class. One student may be advanced in one posture, and beginner in the next pose. We have plenty of modifications for the advanced postures and invite everyone to participate and enjoy the power of the original Power Yoga Class, the Rocket!
The Full Primary Series
The first series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as traditionally taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. This is a fluid class that aims to bring the body in to a very particular sequence of postures. Known as one of the stronger styles of Yoga and the Original Power Yoga Class. The Primary Series is open to beginners and advanced physical levels, while the intention of the class is to learn to link the breath and movement together creating a moving, breathing meditation. At It’s Yoga® we practice with modifications to allow more freedom and discovery in this traditional sequence. Class duration 90 minutes (72 postures).
The Modified Primary Series
A modification of the primary series (MPS) includes sun salutations, standing and seated postures. The first part of class will start with a warm-up series of sun salutations to build up heat. The standing series promotes balance and symmetry in the body and aids in the process of detoxification and tonification of the body. The final part of class is a deeper focus on seated postures with the intention of keeping poses modified and accessible to each student’s individual level. A seated meditation will conclude the practice with deep relaxation, or savasana. The MPS class introduces the students to the breathing and movement techniques used specifically in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. It is designed for beginners and moves slower with more detail on alignment. A Great intro to an It’s Yoga® Class. Class duration 60 minutes.
The Rocket 1, 2 and 3
All levels of Ashtanga practitioners are welcome to Rocket® 1 as we will focus on strengthening the legs, shoulders and abdominals. Be ready to move a bit faster and get a lot stronger. The Rocket® 1 Routine integrates postures from the first and second series of Ashtanga.
An intermediate/advanced series including variations of poses from the second and third series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system. Rocket® 2 focuses on strength poses, backbends and hip openers. Modifications will be offered and encouraged as we build the Practice from the ground up.
This class is called the Happy Hour class or Rocket® 3 at all It’s Yoga® Centers. It’s when we come together to celebrate the week. This class is a fusion of Rocket® 1 and 2, which brings together the postures of the Primary and Rocket® series to create a complete interpretation of the It’s Yoga® System. It is accessible to all levels and especially those who want a challenge in their practice. We will work with all levels of experience to make the class appropiate. The Rocket® 3 is a high-energy class that leaves the body charged with energy. A perfect way to start the weekend. Rocket® 3 is practiced on Fridays in the It’s Yoga® System.

Individual & Small Groups (60-90 minutes)
The 1-on-1 lesson is tailored to support the needs of each individual, so beginners can work on fundamentals and the more experienced practitioners can work on specific needs. Semi-privates are a great way to have a more intimate experience with your asana practice. You will have more individual attention from the teacher and your practice will grow with your group.
