Clarity + Connection: A Vinyasa Weekend
with Rolf Gates
This workshop will be held online via ZOOM. Your ZOOM link(s) will be included in your confirmation email.
The sessions are intended as a whole weekend workshop, but the sessions may be taken individually. All sessions will be based around aspects of Rolf Gates' Meditations on Intention and Being: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion.
Join Rolf for a dynamic weekend of Vinyasa, meditation, pranayama and lecture/discussion. The yoga will be a synergy of the freedom of a powerful Vinyasa class and the structural integrity of yoga's therapeutic alignment principles.
The intensive is intentionally challenging, but open to all who wish to explore yoga as an evolutionary journey. The only 'requirement' is that you show up, do your best and let your best be good enough.
Clarity + Connection: Vinyasa Session
The pose is what we are doing; the yoga is how we are being in the pose.
In this session, we will work with the principles and practices of Yoga to heal our relationship to the present moment. And from there, grounded in the present and in our own hearts, we find new possibilities in every aspect of our lives. The session will include Vinyasa, meditation and lecture/discussion. The yoga will be a synergy of the freedom of a powerful Vinyasa class and the structural integrity of yoga's therapeutic alignment principles.
Open to Teachers and Experienced students. The chakras chart a course across our lives by defining key relationships that have to be resolved on the path to spiritual maturity. They are an energetic link between the manifest and the un-manifest dimensions in our lives and the place in which thought becomes form. A well-designed yoga class unfolds along the path laid out by the chakras.
This workshop will combine a lecture/discussion period and an asana-practice session dedicated to integrating the concepts taught. To truly realize the learning opportunity, it is recommended that participants int eh Chakra Workshop also attend a minimum of one Vinyasa session during the weekend.
Being Still with Skill: The Power of Meditation Workshop
Yoga is the cultivation of inner space and the ability to use it well. In this meditation workshop, Rolf will describe the opportunity presented to us in the teachings of the Buddha and Patanjali. This experiential workshop will explore how these great contributions to consciousness weave beautifully together to enhance the quality of our daily lives. This will be in lecture discussion form and guided meditation experience with support in beginning or building on your own meditation practice.
