Rocket II at AstaYoga
About this class
The Rocket II is based on the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Focused on endurance, upper body strength, hand balancing, back bending and hip opening, this sequence is complementary to the AstaYoga Vinyasa I sequence. Advanced classes are ideal for the regular practitioner or for those ready to commit to their practice. The pace is demanding and the instruction is less extensive than an All Levels class. Each class begins with sun salutations, progresses through the standing sequence building energy for the seated sequence, and closes with the Ashtanga finishing sequence. Familiarity with sun salutations and finishing postures is ideal, but not essential.

How to prepare
Classes at AstaYoga follow a general routine that is vigorous- the more often you practice, the more familiar you will become with the flow. Our Basics classes offer more detailed instruction to get started, but a beginner's attitude is helpful and welcome in every class. The classes are heated to no more than 80 degrees. You will be trained in breathing techniques that stimulate the generation of organic sweat- the sweat you earn. We offer mats for rent ($2) and complimentary towels. Please arrive to class at least 5 minutes early.
