5-Day Rocket Yoga Teacher Training w/ Amber Gean (Feb 24 - 28)


February 24th - 28th, 2017 (60 credit hours with the Yoga Alliance)

The Rocket was developed by Larry Schultz in the 90’s while on tour with the Grateful Dead. The Rocket consists of poses from traditional Ashtanga Yoga. Larry resequenced the poses from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd series around the joints of the body and the days of the week. By doing this he created a more holistic approach to a regular Ashtanga practice. There are more than 140 poses that your body experiences during one week of consistent Rocket practice.

Tuition = $950 + GST

*Pre-registration is required* 

As of now, tuition is due in-full to reserve your spot in the training and you must complete the online teacher training application form (links are below).


This is a 60 hour program with 40 contact hours and 20 non-contact. The training is designed for yogis who have prior experience practicing and instructing yoga. You will learn more advanced sequencing, arm balances and much more, including strengthening your instructing voice and home practice.

The 60 hour Rocket can earn you continuing education hours for Yoga Alliance in the US and has been recently recognized by The Yoga Professional of the United Kingdom as part of 500 hours Rocket training.

The purpose of Rocket advanced training is to share the Rocket philosophy, sequencing and transitions with you. This training will give you the tools to deepen your practice and refine your teaching. 

Amber Gean works with a network of studios that feature the Rocket System as taught by Larry Schultz. 

Our mission is to give you a strong foundation for your practice to blossom on and off the mat. By practicing living "our yoga and our truth" you will be empowered to create a vision and follow your dreams. Some of our graduates go on to open their own studios as well as travel the world facilitating yoga classes and workshops.

This training takes place over 5 days. Each day you will practice The Rocket Routines, including Rocket 1, 2 and 3. You will also learn a beginners approach to Rocket that we call the Bottle Rocket, so it's easier to introduce the Rocket in your home town.

You will also learn cross training methods for strengthening up for more advanced poses and transitions, including the mechanics of flight.

You will practice developing your verbal instructions to make you a more confident yoga instructor. The Rocket will challenge you to open up to your spiritual fire and awaken a deeper purpose in yourself. We have also developed homework that you can take home with you after the training so you can continue to gain knowledge and experience as a Rocket instructor.

A video describing Larry Schultz's Rocket Series

Amber Gean (500-RYT) entered the yoga world with a blast. After she assisted Indu Bala Bhardwaj to open It’s Yoga Cincinnati, she felt inspired to deepen her practice as student and teacher. In Spring 2000, she flew to San Francisco to study with Larry Schultz and flew back to Cincinnati with flowers in her hair and yoga in her bones. By November 2000 she had established herself as a respected teacher, eight classes a week.  She helped facilitate some of the first RYT teacher trainings in Cincinnati. Amber strived to find experienced classical ashtanga yoga teachers, Tim Miller, Lino Miele, and Chuck and Maty Miller, to ground her in the ashtanga lineage. With nearly twenty years experience and ten thousand hours of teaching and training other teachers, Amber shares her depth of wisdom with her students. She offers a dynamic journey into the self, with a gentle approach that truly honors the teacher within each of us. In 2007, she opened Yoga Ah while she continued to work with Schultz at Nauliland (his school in Sonoma) until he passed in 2011. Although a busy mother of two and a studio owner, Amber assembled and wrote a 500-hour training to continue the work that Larry had set in motion. In 2016, the Yoga Alliance Professional, U.K. recognized her training manual. As a pioneer in the Rocket Vinyasa Series, Amber loves to travel around the globe to teach others to teach the modern progression of this powerful lineage, from Krishnamacharya to Larry Schultz.
