We are very happy to Welcome Marcus as part of the TripYoga teaching team! He will be teaching Rocket Yoga & Pranayama every Sunday 4:45pm-6:30pm every Sunday from the 22nd of January!
Marcus’ took the road less-travelled to yoga. Fresh out of Uni, he managed to use his degree in philosophy to justify spending his 20s touring the world as an international DJ, remixing and recording as one half of the Loose Cannons.
Trying every style of class he could get to on every studio intro-offer in London, he finally landed on dynamic vinyasa and more specifically, the Ashtanga-inspired Rocket system, which satisfied his undying urge to fly. Completing his first 200hrs teacher training with the Yoga People in Goa he went on to further train in advanced progressive ashtanga and Yin Yoga, deepening his appreciation of what yoga can be beyond the asanas that drew him in. He is also part of the Dead Yogis Society, a movement to wipe the gloss off the lips of yoga and return to the breath, sweat and rawness of the practice… Letting (e)go.
Rocket yoga (often referred as The Rocket) is a very energetic and invigorating practice.
Linking movement with breath, this quick and dynamic vinyasa flow practice is open and challenging to all levels. You will be encouraged to play with inversions (headstands, handstands etc) and to explore modifications.
The Rocket is an attitude not a sequence and Marcus’ teaching embraces it’s joyful rebel spirit; grounding on the mat, flying off it, always experimenting. Breath and bandhas fire the agni in the practice, but above all, it’s a moving meditation. The DJing still plays an integral role, with specially mixed playlists running the tempo and energy of every class.
Some yoga experience recommended.
