It's Yoga Nicaragua Yoga Teacher Training Program

Arm balancing and inversions

Balancing on your hands has many invigorating benefits. Some of the arm balancing and inversion techniques taught include: crazy eight posture, crow posture, elbow stand, handstands (multiple variations), headstand, one legged crow, peacock posture, scorpion, side crow, and tripod headstand.

Learning the mechanics of flight

Flying is the ability to move fluidly through your practice in sections that require balancing on your hands while your feet are off the ground. Areas covered include: arm balances and inversions from seated positions, creating fluid movement throughout you practice, floating back and forth in the sun salutations, floating with control vs. ballistics, inversions and handstands from standing postures, jump backs from seated postures, and weight transfer into the hands.

Program components

Flying is made possible by combining multiple aspects of yoga that when put together allow you to move and maintain a sense of levitation or flight in your practice. Principals you will learn include: 140 ashtanga postures in the rocket system sequenced by days of the week, abdominal strength and control, full body strengthening including hand, wrist, shoulder, and back development, stacking methods for inversions, Drishti (the integration of eye focus into your practice), adjustments, breathing, forward and backward bends, practice drills scripting techniques, and the first chapter of the Sutras of Patanjali

What is the Rocket?

A principle of this practice, and the practice of Ashtanga, is that repetition brings success; this is not an aphorism, it is the truth. When you commit to this practice, you will come to know the sequences. Over time, you become able to guide yourself through the practice rather than having a dependency upon a teacher. Rather than an exercise routine that values spontaneity, yoga can become an inward journey when youre not waiting to find out from someone else whats next.

Hot yoga is also extremely popular, but your trainers at Its Yoga Nica know that you can learn to stoke your own internal fire with your breath. They like to create sweat organically, and can teach you how to build the heat from the inside out. Though the Rocket has a reputation for being challenging, it is accessible to everyone. Showing up to the mat with a spirit of humility, a willingness to look within and work through whatever comes up is going to positively transform every aspect of your life.

Traditionally in Ashtanga, you progress in a linear fashion, receiving poses as your teacher allows them. The Rocket takes away the hierarchy of this system and empowers practitioners of all levels with access to postures found in the more advanced Ashtanga series. The Rocket I reorders the traditional primary series of Ashtanga, The Rocket II follows the second series of the Ashtanga and Rocket III brings the I and II together for an invigorating 90 poses in 90 minutes
