WHAT is ROCKET YOGA ?
"Larry Schultz originally created the Rocket to make Ashtanga yoga more accessible to the masses." - Amber Gean
Larry Schultz was an influential American yoga instructor. He studied traditional Ashtanga yoga with Pattabhi Jois for a number of years, starting in the early 1980’s. He then began instructing first in Austin, TX and after that in San Francisco. He was one of the first yoga instructors to develop a yoga teacher training program. Hundreds of yogis traveled to San Francisco every year to learn “The System,” as Larry fondly called it. Larry developed beginner-friendly sets of routines called the Minimum Daily Requirements (MDR) and Modified Primary Series (MPS), in order to make Ashtanga yoga accessible to the masses. He later developed the Rocket sequence of routines while on tour with the Grateful Dead as their private yoga instructor. Named by Bobby Weir, the sequences are designed to help students progress their practice at a faster rate. Larry taught up into the time he left his body in 2011. Today his most dedicated students continue his teachings.
