Faith and Flow

A Vinyasa Weekend

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

With earnest practice, we can shed the layers of fear that keep us trapped in suffering, struggling, and aggression. When we dive into vulnerability and honesty, we plant the seeds of acceptance and peace.

Join master teacher and acclaimed author Rolf Gates for a dynamic weekend of yoga, meditation, and self-study as you learn to create a life that works. Through an immersive combination of Rolf’s signature health-felt vinyasa, guided meditation, lecture, pranayama (breath work), and discussion, you’ll discover tools to ground you in your practice and inspire your life.

Walk away with:

  • Meditation and reflection methods with real-world applications for emotional and mental wellness
  • Long-lasting physical rejuvenation from a weekend of energetic asana
  • A wider perspective on the challenges of your life and how to use your practice to move through them gracefully
  • A connection with your heart like never before.

The physical practice will synergize strong, freeing Vinyasa Flow with the stabilizing integrity of yoga’s alignment principles. This challenging yet accessible, all-levels weekend is open to anyone ready to explore yoga as an evolutionary journey. Come with willingness to show up, do your best, and let your best be good enough.
