(valid for 35 hours of practice in the training course of Studio Yoga – CSEN)

Rocket yoga was born in 1980 in San Francisco (California) thanks to Larry Schultz, former pupil of Pattabhi Jois and know as “The Bad Boy Of Ashtanga”. He reinvented the first, second and third series of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, adding some key asanas from the fourth serie: Rocket yoga is a constant and fast flux which articulates on three levels (Rocket 1, Rocket 2 and Rocket 3).

The practice in Vinyasa, sustained by the Ujjay breath, focus on stretching postures, strenght, balance and relaxation. The lessons, which last one hour and a half, leave you with a purified body and a lighter mind.

Rocket yoga is a dynamic form of yoga focused on the synchronization between movement and breath, with the final goal of awaken the body and the mind. it is a discipline which starts form an innovative approach to the classical system of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, making it funnier and more challenging but, above all, open to everyone, from beginners to experts.

Ambra Vallo

Ambra Vallo is a former principal ballerina with the Birmingham Royal Ballet. Throughout her career she enjoyed the chance to perform on stages all around the world. She turned to yoga on a path to recovery from injuries that naturally result from the strenuous training regime, and as well as becoming a hobby she also credits it with helping to enhance and prolong her career. Slowly over the years she fell in love with the more subtle, spiritual parts of the practice. Retiring from dance allowed her the time to focus on her passion and to undertake further training in Ashtanga Vinyasa (500hrs), Dharma Yoga (800hrs), Rocket Yoga (500hrs), Forrest Yoga (200hrs and Advance TT), Tripsichore (200hrs), and Gokul Vinyasa Yoga (300hrs).

Ambra’s teaching is fun and spontaneous following the lineage of Larry Shultz, Ana Forrest, and Sri Dharma Mittra. Since she retired from professional ballet she has been teaching regularly in teacher training courses, has worked with performers and athletes helping to rethink their traditional training regimes and introduce yoga to drive better performance and increase their enjoyment of sport and performance. Her aim is to guide others so as they may also experience the many amazing benefits of yoga to the body, mind and soul.

Leon London

Leon London’s yoga story started 20 years ago. His first practice was with Billy Doyle (BWY) and this was the beginning of a lifelong passion. Involved in martial arts from an early age, Leon has always been intrigued by the possibilities and potential of the body. This eventually led him on his journey to study many forms of physical culture; from boxing to capoeira. Leon has studied Kashmir hatha, vinyasa flow, Ashtanga and rocket/progressive Ashtanga yoga.

Leon undertook Ashtanga teacher training with David Swenson, then with David Kyle (Ashtanga Puerto Rico), and Jamie and Dulce (the yoga people). Leon’s students enjoy his vast knowledge of the body gained from over 20 years of experience and the fun friendly inspiring classes he shares with them. Leon also conducts successful workshops with Marcus Veda, and retreats with Ambra Vallo. He continues to teach a committed following of students in classes across London.

5 good reasons to enroll to a Yoga Retreat

1. PER DEDICARE DEL TEMPO A TE STESSO/A
C’e una differenza enorme tra andare in vacanza e partecipare ad uno yoga retreat. Lo yoga retreat è centrato sul fare un passo indietro, portare l’attenzione all’interno, permettere a voi stessi di concedervi del tempo per voi. Le vacanze sono centrate attorno al “fare”, mentre uno yoga retreat e’ semplicemente centrato sull’ “essere”. In vacanza ci si trova spesso a fare compromessi su dove andare e cosa fare, mentre in un retreat ci si concentra ad ascoltare i propri bisogni e rispettare i propri tempi.
In un retreat si è incoraggiati a lasciare fuori lo stress quotidiano e il resto del mondo e concentrarsi sul “fare” meno ed “essere” di più. Prendersi del tempo per voi stessi vi farà sentire ricaricati, inspirati e profondamente riposati. Un retreat può anche aiutarvi a riacquistare chiarezza e magari a trovare risposte a domande che stavate cercando da tempo.

2. PER PORTARE LA VOSTRA PRATICA DI YOGA AD UN NUOVO LIVELLO
Che pratichiate da anni, da mesi o abbiate appena iniziato, sicuramente uno yoga retreat vi permetterà di portare la vostra pratica ad un nuovo livello. La maggior parte dei retreats includono due lezioni di yoga al giorno, che di per se già vi farà guadagnare forza, flessibilità e aumenterà la consapevolezza con cui praticate più di quanto potete immaginare. Il regalo più grande che un retreat vi farà è quello di farvi uscire dalla vostra zona di comfort. In un retreat sarete in un ambiente nuovo, circondati da nuove persone e magari anche nuovi insegnanti e la giornata si focalizzerà sulla vostra pratica di yoga. É il momento perfetto per sganciarsi dalle abitudine, da quello che pensiamo di poter fare o no ed esplorare nuove possibilità.

3. PER FARE AMICIZIA
La cosa bella di partecipare ad un retreat è che si conoscono nuove persone che condividono simili interessi e l’esperienza spesso rende il gruppo unito, permettendo di creare amicizie che durano oltre la vacanza.

4. PER IMPARARE COSE NUOVE
Spesso i retreats non solo vi permettono di praticare yoga, ma anche di esplorare lo stile di vita di uno yogi. Per esempio, a volte si includono nozioni di Ayurveda, alimentazione naturale, filosofia dello yoga e meditazione.

5. PER DISINTOSSICARSI DALLO STRESS QUOTIDIANO
Volete ripulire corpo, mente, cuore e anima? Iscrivetevi ad uno yoga retreat.

Avrete l’opportunità di mangiare del cibo delizioso e purificare il corpo; la pratica dello yoga si prenderà cura della mente e delle emozioni e potreste anche trovare tempo per dialogare con la vostra anima.

L’obiettivo principale di uno yoga retreat è quello di farvi sentire molto, molto bene in tutti i sensi, per cui indipendentemente da quali siano le ragioni che vi spingono a partecipare, vi lascerà riposati, rilassati e ricaricati.  E vi ispirerà a incorporare nuove cose nella vostra routine quotidiana una volta tornati a casa.

6. MOTIVO BONUS: TE LO MERITI!

Facciamo sempre cosi tanto per gli altri senza fermarci un attimo a dedicare tempo a noi stessi e ricaricarci.
Non ci pensiamo due volte a comprare qualcosa per una persona a cui vogliamo bene, ma ci pensiamo due, tre, anche quattro volte prima di fare qualcosa di speciale per noi.
Tu più di chiunque altro ti meriti di prenderti cura di te… e ricorda che se tu non sei felice, in salute e ispirato/a, non puoi rendere le persone che ti circondano felici, per cui regalandoti un momento per te stai allo stesso tempo facendo qualcosa di buono per chi ti circonda.
