Skills & Drills II: Vinyasa Intensive
As vinyasa becomes more common, quality varies greatly. Vinyasa classes resemble fitness classes (remember aerobics?) more than ever before, and the spectrum of “vinyasa culture” seems to grow by the hour.
Rocky´s events explore how to safely and effectively create the flow state your students crave, while providing you with knowledge, strategies and techniques to set your students up for success.
Embody your own most effective and powerful teacher and the quality and integrity of your offering will be magnetic and magical. Expect strong intermediate practices each day with Rocky to further develop your own asana practice and understanding of pose architecture.
Many of us have come to associate a sun salutation, breath-based practice with yoga. While there are many profound benefits to the structure and sequencing of this typical vinyasa approach, there are some limits and deficiencies as well.
In Skills and Drills: Dynamic Flow, you will learn intelligent and innovative techniques to weave functional and varied movement into your vinyasa practice, enriching the efficacy of your classes without compromising their capacity to enable the flow state of consciousness.
By combining the science of mobility mapping with the dance of vinyasa sequencing, we can merge the logical with the intuitive and enable a potent and transformative experience for ourselves and our students.

Morning asana sessions tend to be upbeat, with an emphasis on standing postures, backbends, arm balances and/or vinyasa flow. We turn inward as the sun wanes to forward bends, inversions and restorative postures. Students can expect to leave this program with a deeper, more expansive practice, and know how best to grow your yoga practice in the context of her/his own limits and boundaries.
