Rocket Yoga Class

Fri Jul 19, 7:30–9:00pm • Cambridge

Rocket Yoga is a dynamic and challenging vinyasa flow sequence, combining poses and transitions from the Ashtanga Yoga Primary, Second, and Third Series. In this class, you can expect a little bit of everything: arm balances, backbends, deep twists, and of course, inversions. Be ready to work hard and play hard.
All levels welcome.
Cost: $30

Tricky Transitions Workshop

Sat Jul 20, 1:30–4:00pm • Brookline

In this workshop, we will dive deeper into the trickier elements of inverting: handstand pressing, floating in sun salutations, transitioning in and out of arm balances, and many more drills to take with you to your home practice.
Prerequisites: a comfortable crow pose and some experience upside-down.
Cost: $50

Yoga for Strength Workshop

Sun Jul 21, 1:30–4:00pm • Brookline

Learn techniques to make your yoga practice stronger. In this workshop, we will use bodyweight exercises to build arm and shoulder stability, core control, and a stronger pair of legs.
All levels welcome.
Cost: $50

Cost for the full weekend: $110

About Carson

About Carson

A self-described “Handstand-Up Comedian,” Carson combines his love for being upside-down with his natural ability to make people laugh. During his workshops, trainings, and retreats, students are encouraged to push their limits and explore their edge, while maintaining a playful attitude. In every instance, one can be sure to break a sweat, learn something new, and leave with a smile on his or her face.

After years of encouragement from his mother, Carson began practicing yoga in 2010. He did his first 200-hour teacher training in 2011 at Little River Yoga and has since studied Ashtanga Yoga with David B. Keil and has since evolved his focus and loves teaching Rocket Yoga. As a movement enthusiast, Carson incorporates a variety of disciplines into his yoga classes, which focus on building a strong mind and body.

Carson is an E-RYT 200, YACEP | International travel yoga instructor | Gold Medalist in the 8-and-under freestyle (swim)
