How do we begin? How do we sustain? How do we finish?
"To emphasize everything is to emphasize nothing."

In every class there is an opportunity created by the students, the teacher and the practice.
This two day training will use the final four limbs of yoga: Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadi as the basis for effective sequencing and themeing in the classroom. You will learn how classical yoga theory (The Eight-Limb Path and The Yoga Sutras) teaches us how to organize our classes, sequence our classes and guide our students into a deeper and more fulfilling relationship to themselves.

Rolf Gates
Born in Manhattan, Rolf Gates grew up in the Boston area as an avid marathon runner, long distance cyclist and champion wrestler. As the descendant of six generations of ministers, he gained an understanding of service and dedication at a very early age.

He studied American History at American University in DC and in 1987 received his commission in the U.S. Army Infantry from Georgetown University. As a military officer he became an Airborne Ranger and served with the U.S forces in Germany.

Rolf went on to work as an emergency medical technician serving the Boston Community and an addictions counselor, working with the most difficult teenagers in the system. Exploring his growing interest in yoga and meditation, he received his early training in Kripalu Yoga from The Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health. He went on to study Ashtanga and Power Yoga.  He directed studios in Cambridge and Boston and now co-owns a studio in Boston, MA, (“Boston’s Best” Yoga Studio) (opened January, 2002).

He appears regularly modeling yoga poses in Natural Health magazine and conducts workshops throughout the US and abroad. In 2002 he was named “Boston’s Best” Yoga Teacher by Boston Magazine. He lives in Boston with his wife, KidPower Yoga Teacher and Director, Mariam Gates, their new daughter Jasmine and two large dogs.

What informs Rolf’s teaching and his book, Meditations from the Mat: Reflections on the Path of Yoga, is a lifetime of experiences. The students who show up weekly seeking Rolf’s instruction and inspiration represent a multitude of backgrounds as well—CEO’s, pro-athletes, housewives, college students, fitness enthusiasts and those who never before thought they’d find themselves in a yoga class.
