Jamie is a Rocket Yoga Teacher Trainer and was trained by Larry Shultz, the creator of the Rocket in San Francisco. Jamie brings a wealth of knowledge from his lifetime career in movement, so whether you are someone who loves yoga and are looking to progress, particularly if you want to invest in your practice; or if you are a yoga teacher looking to add to your understanding of alignment in arm balances or just to move your practice off a plateau, this workshop is a must!
Full of Arm balances and handstand practice, back bending and spinal twisting, this uplifting sequence of postures has gained global recognition as a feel-good experience that opens the body and clears the mind. The Rocket breaks through common areas of tension and energy blockage, combating tendencies towards stagnancy and resistance in the body. Frequent handstands and arm balances keep the energy levels high and encourage students to connect to their inner power and change their worldview. The playful and upbeat Rocket routine is the perfect counter to the soothing forward bending of the Vinyasa flow and Primary Series. The Rocket routine creates an energy peak in the cyclic rhythms of the practice sequences. Accessible to all levels, the Rocket routines can give modifications to beginners and variations that challenge even the advanced asana students allowing the benefits to be felt by all. Rocket yoga is considered an all-inclusive practice.
Jamie’s Rocket teaching has playful creativity, fluidly negotiating around the classic Rocket signature structure. Inversions are a signature that commonly represents the Rocket practice and Jamie’s teaching will support and encourage your evolution towards the practice of these, exciting and uplifting inversions, whether you are lifting one foot off the floor for the first time or refining an established practice. As a master teacher, Jamie’s eye for technique is second to none and he is very generous offering hands-on and individuated corrections tailored to your personal practice. If you are uncomfortable with hands-on adjustments Jamie is perhaps not the best teacher for you.
Jamie Blowers is a senior teacher with The Yoga Alliance Professionals and historically the foremost teacher and teacher trainer of The Rocket Yoga Practice in England. His former studios in London and Leeds were the first to adopt the Rocket system of yoga practice in the UK following his studies with the creator of the Rocket, Larry Shultz in San Francisco in 2009. Larry Shultz invited Jamie to lead teacher trainings in 2010 and he has since primarily trained many of the Rocket teachers around the country and practically all the Leeds based Rocket teacher cohort.
Besides teaching and researching yoga Jamie’s love of movement extends into contemporary dance. Jamie has just completed a Masters Degree in Choreographing 2018 and Is presently pursuing a PhD research project focused on Contemporary Inscriptions of meaning in Yoga practices.
