4 Beat Rocket Yoga Intensive with Fiona Callanan
8-13 May (Monday - Saturday) Starstreet Precinct – Wan Chai
Rocket Yoga is a modified and accessible form of Ashtanga yoga developed by Larry Schultz (known as the "Bad Man of Ashtanga") in San Francisco in the 1980s. The philosophical essence of the Rocket practice is choice.
The two main Rocket sequences are designed to energetically take you up and then bring you back down to a calmer place than you started from.
In the 4 Beat practice the breath is aligned to a slow, regular beat that directs concentration to a single, unwavering point. This immerses the practitioner in a state of synchronous moving meditation and activates the parasympathetic nervous system – the neurological function that relaxes and rests the nervous system – all while the practitioner is working hard physically.
The combination of the Rocket practice with 4 Beat breath is magical.
This morning series will consist of 6 classes focusing on the various aspects of Rocket 1 sequence and 4 Beat breath.
Upon programme completion, students will receive a goodie bag and HK$500 voucher redeemable at any Sweaty Betty store in Hong Kong.
