Rolf Gates returns to SoulSpace, NOV 4TH and 5TH, 2017

gatesr_web

Join Rolf for a dynamic weekend of Vinyasa, meditation, pranyama and lecture/discussion as we explore the practices that create a life that works. Throughout this weekend, 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 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 Beings: Dally Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion

Saturday, November 4th, 9-12pm: Faith and 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.

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.

Saturday, November 4th, 2-5pm:  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. 

Sunday, November 5th: 9am-noon: Intention and Being: Vinyasa Session

The pose is what we are doing; the yoga is how we are being in the pose. 

Knowing the heart offers us 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.

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.
