Being Still with Skill & Intention and Flow
with Rolf Gates

Location: Erector Square
Saturday October 13th, 2018 9 AM - 12 PM; 2 PM - 5 PM

Individual Session Fee:
$60 Early Bird by September 30th; $70 thereafter
Full Day Fee:
$100 by September 30th; $120 thereafter

Join Rolf for a dynamic program of Vinyasa, Meditation, Pranayama and lecture/discussion as we explore the practices that create a life that works. Through the day, 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 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.

The sessions may be taken together or individually. All sessions will be based around aspects of Rolf Gates' Meditations on Intention and Beings: Dally Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion

Being Still with Skill: The Power of Meditation Workshop 9 AM - 12 PM

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.

Intention and Flow: Vinyasa Session 2 PM - 5 PM

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 being grounded in our practice and inspired in our lives. We will allow our practice to give voice to the great heart within us. 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. 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.
