About It's Yoga

Larry Schultz established the first It’s Yoga school in San Francisco, in 1989, in order to create and hold a space to facilitate and share Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, following on in the footsteps of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Having practiced Ashtanga Vinyasa for more than 30 years, Larry was a visionary and a pioneer in beginning to create and establish some of the most stimulating and empowering yoga routines - grounded and yet moving beyond the initial three sequences of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga tradition.

"The Rocket" emerged whilst Larry was the 'on-tour' personal yoga teacher to the Grateful Dead between 1990-1994. These signature Rocket® sequences made available many of the more advanced asanas from the Second and Third series to all levels of practitioners by encouraging students to get into a mindset of modification. That is, moving away from the notion that one need 'perfect' a given asana before moving on to the next.  This style of Ashtanga Vinyasa was structured and designed specifically for Westerners, in as much as making an Eastern Science accessible and fun to all levels and at all times, and simultaneously providing the ancient benefits of this powerful therapeutic practice of yoga.

"The Rocket gets you there faster"; it is structured to enliven and awaken the chakra and nervous systems, and gives the body, heart and mind the vital energy you need to live your highest potential, whatever that may be - setting a frequency of freedom, courage and change in your yoga practice, on and off the mat.

Like a string of beads, each asana flows into the next in an aerobic and dynamic yoga practice. The practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga cultivates a high frequency experience that aligns you to your healthiest and most empowered version of yourself - body, heart and mind. Bringing and connecting movement and breath onto the same field of awareness, The Rocket® stokes the fire within and so strengthens and deeply cleanses the body from any toxins and thus emotional or mental dis-ease. These sequences will bring a more profound dose of oxygen to your blood stream, encouraging circulation, and moving more blood up and down the central channel and toward the brain, profoundly stimulating your ability to think more clearly and live to your highest most creative potential. 

We slow down and seemingly reverse the process of ageing, allowing you to drop years of your life by doing away with so much unnecessary stress; re-shaping the body all the while. The embodied practice cultivates balance through concentration, flexibility, endurance and strength and purifies the body. As Larry liked to say, “Ashtanga Yoga is the ultimate Health Management System.”

It’s Yoga is the only organisation recognised to honour the It’s Yoga Tradition started in San Francisco and is the official home of the It’s Yoga Legacy of the Rocket Routines and the It’s Yoga Trainings.

 


We do the practice to love ourselves so we can learn to love others more.



Moving and Breathing Together

The It's Yoga® System is a unique set of sequences to be found globally across all the It's Yoga schools, covering Sunday through Monday with different routines for each and every day of the week. Sunday starts the week with the classical Primary Ashtanga Series, and every Friday, the week ends with "Rocket 3", often dubbed the "Happy Hour". The It’s Yoga System ensures that practitioners will see substantial results within weeks of practicing and boasts an effective and approachable practice for everyone.

The creative and empowering Rocket yoga routines have gained global recognition as a feel-good experience for opening and clearing the mind and the body through the many spinal twists, forward and backward folds, arm balances and inversions, which are included from the very beginning. The Rocket takes you beyond any energetic blockages or places of tension, moving you into a place of confidence, freedom and spontaneous empowerment.

We are honoured to continue to practice the Rocket routines that Larry Schultz gifted the world. Not only are they fun and powerful; they also inspire flight on the mat and in day-to-day life. Larry's teachings have and continue to support us in using the power of Yoga to improve vitality and health, take responsibility for well being, and transform our everyday lived experience.
