Larry's vision since 1989
Larry Schultz, Founder
Larry Schultz, aka The Rocketman studied with luminary Sri K. Pattabhi Jois for seven years. Establishing It’s Yoga in 1989, he is known as one of the foremost Yoga enthusiasts in the West, and It’s Yoga one of the oldest Ashtanga schools.
Larry developed his much beloved “The Rocket” routines which are a variation of the classical first, second and third series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. He was one of first to step out of the box by stretching the boundaries of the classical Ashtanga System with modifications of the advanced poses.
Over the years, he facilitated the opening of over 15 studios and affiliates that teach "The Rocket" Routines and the “It’s Yoga Teacher Training Program.”
He passed away February 27, 2011 in Toledo, Ohio while visiting his wife’s family. His memory, teachings, energy and living legacy will be eternal.
We are all trained by "It's Yoga", It's Yoga Fuerteventura was established in 2015. In January 2021 we moved forward and created INBODHI - A YOGA CIRCLE (read on >>> the community letter) Namasté
"People turning away from something that doesn't serve their life no more, towards what does." - Larry Schultz
27 January 2021
In Yoga, as in life, change is a constant and very natural part of the process. We are always making transitions, whether from pose to pose or place to place, even from relationship to relationship. This is part of our evolution as human beings and it reminds us of the value of non-attachment to form. Today we share with you that we are making a shift in our Yoga affiliation and joyfully invite you on this inspired journey.
You have known us and our studios as “It’s Yoga” for as long as we have been established. We deeply love and appreciate the teachings of Larry Schultz and the practice of The Rocket, both of which we will continue to offer. However, given changes in alignment, the European It’s Yoga affiliates and trainers (Brighton, Egadi-Favignana, Florence, Fuerteventura, Helsinki, Tallinn, Zürich) have answered an Inner call to a new path forward, one that is fully aligned for us both personally and professionally. As such, we are no longer affiliated with It’s Yoga International.
“Inbodhi - A Yoga Circle” is being born.
This name has been consciously chosen to represent enlightenment, peace, our innate connectedness with nature, and the sacred Union experienced in the practice of Yoga. The Circle is one of trust, equanimity, transformation, and spiritual freedom. We ‘Inbodhi’ a collective community where all are welcome, neutrality and equality reigns, and Yoga is supreme.
The vision of Inbodhi is to be true to our tradition of sharing the Love of the practice. We are in the process of co-creating new 200 (RYT 200), and 300 hours (RYT 500), Yoga Alliance registered trainings. We are bringing the best of ourselves and our experience to this development, and we envision these to be next-level offerings. For you, this shift will enhance your Yoga experience and education and we will continue to operate without interruption.
We will share updates as our transition continues. For now, you can continue to find us on our current websites and social media pages. New online locations will be live in the coming weeks and announced as soon as they are ready.
Welcome to Inbodhi - we are delighted to experience Yoga with you.
