50h Rocket® Yoga Training Retreat

Togetherness with great energy.

with Lita Sattva

05th Jan 2025 to 12th Jan 2025 in Goa (1 week)
 

During these 7 days of Rocket® YTT, we're diving into practice, learning, sweating, laughing, and bonding over poolside chats, beach strolls, and communal meals! A great opportunity to feel the strong sense of community created by this practice. This YTT in Rocket®, also known as Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, specializes in the sequences created by Larry Schultz (a long-time student of the founder of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, K. Pattabhi Jois) with the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga system as a base. These systems have deep similarities but obvious differences, and the combination of both will allow students to enhance their opportunity for further growth and deepen their practices, demystifying the boundaries created by some progression limits of the traditional Ashtanga practice.

I haven't met Larry in person, but I deeply sense his legacy by experiencing this method, and also by savoring all the insights and inspiring stories shared by David Kyle, my teacher, who was a close student and practiced with Larry extensively.

We will cover the series of Rocket I, Rocket II, and Rocket III. These series were developed by combining key postures of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. 

The vast majority of this training is focused on increasing the student's ability to progress into the postures of the series through the valuable modifications, strengthening techniques, and drills offered by Larry Schultz and David Kyle’s teachings, as well as the philosophical approach to the practice as a lifestyle.

As a 50-hour Rocket® YTT program, you will receive a 50-hour certification that can be used in the Yoga Alliance's continuous training towards 500 hours of the "Progressive Ashtanga Yoga Professional Development Program”. 

In collaboration with the Progressive Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga School, we will bring the Rocket® spirit to Goa!

About the Teacher

E-RYT 500 - Licensed Rocket® Trainer

Lita's life has been a journey of discovery, passion, and transformation, all sparked by her discovery of yoga at the age of seventeen. Initially, she began her yoga journey with Hatha and meditation and spent five years fully dedicated to this method. However, an inner calling prompted her to seek a more physically demanding asana practice, and she eventually fell in love with the Ashtanga Yoga system, which she has been practicing ever since.

While Lita initially combined her passion for yoga with acting, she gradually found herself drawn more to yoga, which remained a constant guiding force in her life. After moving to London, she had the opportunity to explore different types of yoga, including Dharma yoga, Rocket Vinyasa, Yogasana, Yin Yoga, Ashtanga Vinyasa, and Jivamukti, among others. The Rocket practice resonated most deeply with her, capturing her heart.

As Lita's daily yoga practice grew stronger and more consistent, she experienced significant changes in her life. Eventually, she made the decision to dedicate herself fully to yoga and leave behind her acting pursuits. To deepen her knowledge and understanding of yoga, Lita has traveled extensively throughout Europe, the US, and India, studying with incredible teachers.

Lita has been practicing, studying, and assisting her teacher David Kyle for almost six years, and in 2021, she received Level 3+ certification from the Progressive Ashtanga Yoga School. Since then, she has been hosting Rocket teacher training, workshops, and retreats based on the Progressive Ashtanga method, sharing her passion and knowledge of yoga with others.

Through her own transformative journey with yoga, Lita has come to believe that this beautiful practice is accessible to all. She is committed to facilitating this journey for others to the best of her abilities and inspiring them to live a yogic lifestyle. Ultimately, her goal is to share the transformative power of yoga with as many people as possible.
