What’s the purpose of this training?

The Purpose of the IYI 200 Hr. Program is to be supportive, so that you can learn and integrate the main ingredients of the It’s Yoga System of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga,  in order  to have the confidence, independence and freedom to share the practice in your community. 

The Purpose of the IYI 300 Hr. is to be open to yoga instructors from other 200 Hr. Programs, as well as IYI 200 Hr. graduates, so that we can offer a solid framework of education in the It’s Yoga Rocket System.  Thus, participants are invited to experience the tools and techniques of the Rocket, as developed by creator Larry Schultz, in order to practice and lead classes rooted in the authenticity.

The Purpose of the IYI 500 Hr. Program is to be committed to excellence in sharing the Rocket in the world.  By  experiencing, integrating and gaining the expertise, confidence and connection required to serve at a high level, IYI 500 Hr. Rocket Trainers have the tools to open an It’s Yoga Studio and /or lead It’s Yoga Teacher Trainings, contributing to yoga vision of all beings everywhere being happy and free.
