INTENTION + BEING: A VINYASA WEEKEND with Rolf Gates

**Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to study with internationally-renowned yoga teacher & author, Rolf Gates!**

Join Rolf for a dynamic weekend of Vinyasa, Meditation, Pranayama, and Discussion, as we explore the practices that create a life that works. The pose is what we are doing, the yoga is how we are being in the pose.

This weekend intensive is 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.

The sessions are intended as a whole weekend workshop, but may be taken individually. All sessions will be based on Rolf Gates’ newly released: Meditations on Intention and Being: Dally Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion.

WEEKEND SCHEDULE:

FRIDAY:
6:00pm – 9:00pm: VISION + FOCUS: Vinyasa Session

In this asana-based session, we will explore being grounded in our practice and inspired in our lives. Our practice will give voice to the great heart within us. This session will include Vinyasa, meditation, and discussion.

SATURDAY:
9:00am – 12:00pm: BEING STILL WITH SKILL: 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.

SATURDAY:
2:00pm – 5:00pm: FAITH + FLOW: Vinyasa Session

‘In our fear we believe that we must make things happen; in our practice we learn to let things happen.’ Rolf Gates

In this asana-based session, we will explore and practice how we create the experience of ‘sanctuary’ – the experience of the sacred in our every day lives. This session will include Vinyasa, meditation and discussion.

SUNDAY:
9:00am – 12:00pm: INTENTION + BEING: Vinyasa Session

Knowing the heart offers us new possibilities in every aspect of our lives. In this asana-based session, we will dive into the tools of yoga that allow us to stay connected to the truth of who we are as we practice new ways of being in the world.

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.

YIN YOGA IMMERSION + TEACHER TRAINING with Colure Caulfield

Discover the “other half” of yoga…

Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice that is accessible to students from every walk of life – from the power yoga junkie, to the desk jockey, to beginner and experienced students alike.

Yin Yoga works deep into the body’s connective tissues and joints to release stored-up tension, stress, and anxiety; creating space, balance, and ease in both body and mind.

The practice of Yin Yoga benefits the physical body by gently and deeply stretching the body’s ligaments, tendons, and fascia; releasing tension, enhancing mobility and flexibility, and alleviating chronic pain.

Beyond the physical, Yin Yoga practice incorporates basic principles of meditation, allowing access to inner stillness, true rest, and the healing power of letting go.

This weekend immersion is for anyone interested in exploring the dynamic & balancing practice of Yin Yoga, whether your intention is to teach, or to simply deepen your own personal practice.
