Early mornings. Long days. Two daily practices. Emotions that range from tears to laughter, frustration to pure joy. Being in a teacher training is a empowering, transformational, all- encompassing journey that will surely send us away as very different persons to when we started. Being in a teacher training with It’s Yoga means that we will expand our practice, our viewpoint and our understanding. The training will invite us to challenge assumpti...
The founder of It's Yoga & the creator of The Rocket® Larry Schultz was known as the Yogaman. After studying with Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for seven years, he was the first to liberate the hierarchy of the Ashtanga Vinyasa sequences as taught by the master.
Larry was lovingly also called as the "bad man of Ashtanga" by Pattabhi Jois:
"Pattabhi Jois had predicted for him, “all is coming in 25 years.” Pattabhi believed there were 3 kinds of students. One...
The time has come to introduce the It’s Yoga Fuerteventura (IYFV) blog! We are happy to be here & have You here.
The blog is designed to keep you up to date with the latest news, happenings and events at IYFV, as well as tell you a little bit more about the history of It’s Yoga International, the roots of the Ashtanga and Rocket® practice and give some insights into the island life here in Corralejo, Fuerteventura.
Starting a yoga practice or paddling to surf for the first times, can feel like communicating with a foreign language. "Hola! Qué tal? Son estas manos y mis pies la mía? The movement of the body, the focus, and the flow might feel unfamiliar for us first (and that is totally ok). With the constantly coming back to this state of moving through, we start to communicate, not only with ourselves but with nature too.
I never planned on specifically doing "The Rocket®" training and certainly did not have Fuerteventura on my radar of places to visit in the near future. But it seems that life had a path laid out for me that I didn’t know about yet.

When I started looking for my second teacher training, the...
Every once in awhile, we realize, that IT’S TIME to take better care of ourselves; to eat healthier, to sleep and to relax. We come back to our daily exercises that keep the body open and released. We take time for our family & friends. We pay attention to nature around, seize the moments of light & sunsets. By noticing the colors of the sky and sea, we feel the moves of the wind on our skin and the water under the surfboard. It is inside of us, t...
I have waited for this moment since the day I knew this place will be here.
I love to write. I love to share my thoughts in writing. I love to read written words. It literally blew my mind (what a funny saying and so true) when I came to It's Yoga 200 Hours Teacher Training in 2014 and I learned that "Write it down" is how one figures out this all_yoga_stuff in this system.
