Ashtanga Vinyasa & Rocket® Teacher Trainings



Limited Time Offer: £99 for 90 Days


The It's Yoga System

The Rocket® Routines consist of a series of yoga postures based on a modification of the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga primary and intermediate series. They present the perfect marriage of tempo and sequence. Appropriate for all levels of students, they provide plenty of ways to modify the classical poses, placing function over form.

At It’s Yoga®, we dissolve the hierarchy of postures and invite beginners and advanced practitioners to practice in the same room - heightening energy and inspiration in the class.  The same student may be advanced in one posture, and a beginner in the next pose. When the breath opens up the practice, the forms and levels of the poses shift and we all - the poses and the practitioners - become equal.

Honouring every student’s potential is an essential part of what we do. We trust that the practice will support each individual in growing at the pace that best serves them as The Rocket gets you there faster.

What follows is a description of each class type offered at It's Yoga Brighton, U.K. For a complete experience, we encourage you to practice the whole Rocket system over a period of three months - you will see many radical shifts and changes in your health, well-being and peace of mind in this time!

I asked Bob Weir, I said, 'Bob, what are we gonna call this routine?' ... He said, within two breaths, 'We're gonna call it The Rocket.' I went, 'The Rocket? Why are we gonna call it The Rocket?' He said, 'Because it gets you there faster!' I went, 'Good. That's all I needed to know!'

The Full Primary Series - [90min]

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).


Modified Primary Series (MPS) [60min] - "The Good Medicine" - The Intro to all It’s Yoga® Classes" 

This class is the perfect way to introduce you to your own self-practice and always great to revisit regularly to ground down and check in. There is a slower tempo and more of a focus on alignment. We begin with Surya Namaskara A & B (Sun Salutations) as a warm-up and continue on to standing poses to cultivate physical and mental focus, symmetry and balance as well as begin the process of detoxification and strengthening. From there we move onto the seated asanas where we hold the space for each and every student to find their own modification at their given level, making the practice accessible for all. Finally we will enter the finishing sequence to calm, cool and soothe the body and conclude with deep relaxation through Savasana or seated meditation. The MPS class introduces the practitioners to the breathing and movement techniques used specifically in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. 


The Rocket® 1 - "The Feel Good Sequence" - [75-90min]

Rocket® 1 is known as 'The Feel-Good sequence' and establishes a strong foundation for the week. The routine develops stamina and emphasises balance, increasing the strength of the legs, the range of the hip rotation, and the opening of the lower back. Anchored in the classical Full Primary Ashtanga sequence, Rocket 1 evolves to integrate elements of cross-training, including Circus & Pilates, enabling us to build towards a relaxed, fun and creative inversion practice.

The more you expand your emotional and physical horizons in this sequence, the more that you can better realise your potential as practitioners - Rocket 1 is a great foundation-builder as well as offering lots to more advanced practitioners. Suitable for all levels.


The Rocket® 2 - "Get's you there faster" (75-90min)

 Rocket® 2 is a challenging and invigorating sequence, and is what The Rocket's all about, "getting you there faster". The routine develops upper-body strength (arms, chest, upper-back) and emphasises the opening of the lower (lumbar) back and the upper (thoracic) back of the body through a variety of back-bending asanas. Rocket 2 is grounded in the classical Secondary Ashtanga Series and provides the opportunity for the practitioner to feel light, open, strong and invigorated.

Although challenging, with consistency of effort and staying connected to your breath and bandha's, this sequence will become deeply empowering, transformative and healing. Some experience recommended.


The Rocket® 3 - "Happy Hour - Watching poses Appear and Disappear" 

Dubbed across all It's Yoga Centres as the "Happy Hour", "The Rocket®" 3 is when we all join together in celebration of the week. Including all the asanas of the It’s Yoga® System – 90 poses in 90 minutes, it is a fusion of Rocket® 1 and 2 - including forward-bending, back-bending, arm-balances and abdominal cross-training. Accessible for all levels as well as a great opportunity for those wishing to take their practice to the next horizon. The Rocket® 3 is a high-energy class that leaves the body charged with energy, qi and prana. A perfect way to start the weekend. It's practiced on Fridays in the It’s Yoga® System & at all It's Yoga® studios worldwide. Some experience recommended

Yin Yoga - "Awaken the Deep Power" [60-90mins]

A Yin Yoga practice consists of deep, searching and opening sequences of asanas or postures, held on the floor for anything from 3-5 minutes. We reconnect with the deeper areas of our bodies, predominately the connective tissues that wrap around and hold our joints together. Through exercising these 'yin' tissues we will stimulate the energetic Meridian system of the body and begin to explore & release physical, mental and emotional tension. Yin yoga is a very effecive way to increase flexibility. Everyone's body is different, and so, throughout the practice, we encourage you to listen to your bodies and to find your own unique variation/modification at any given moment, day, week or month. Infusing the practice with an intention of self-acceptance, kindness and creativity, the result is deep regeneration that literally reempowering us and sets us up for a life and whatever we choose to do and accept.

Suitable for all.


Kids & Community Yoga - "Waking up the Inner-Child" [30-90mins]

Yoga is an ancient practice which helps to create harmony in our bodies, our minds and our lives. It improves health and well-being, encourages strength and flexibility as well as self-acceptance and confidence. This is even more true for children - and we believe that yoga is for everyone! You are never too young or too old to embark on this magical journey. In our fast-paced modern lifestyle, even children will experience stress, competition and social and academic pressure. Through yoga, they can learn how to return to their bodies and interact with each other and their environment in a safe, supportive, non-competitive way.

Yoga is a fun, great way for kids to be active and creative while learning and developing essential physical, emotional, cognitive and social skills, such as body and sensory awareness, concentration, self-acceptance and expression, and compassion, teamwork and respect.

We also offer Family Yoga, which is a great way to bring your family closer together, whether it is just your family in a private class or a group of families coming together - we can make it work! Family Yoga is a wonderful way to strengthen the bonds between everyone, no matter how young or old. It is much like a Kids Yoga class, but the parents, grandparents and older siblings get to join in too and let their inner children play!

Suitable for all.
