Finding our Center
Join world renowned teacher Rolf Gates for this special 3hr asana-based workshop. The session will be a balance of lecture and asana and will include elements of pranayama and meditation. We'll explore 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 pose is what we are doing, the yoga is how we are being in the pose.
All levels are welcome in this well rounded workshop.

The asana 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 work will be based around aspects of Rolf Gates' newly released: Meditations on Intention and Beings: Dally Reflections on the Path of Yoga, Mindfulness and Compassion
