About Kaiut Yoga:

Kaiut yoga is all about bio-mechanical health, or said another way, ”Your freedom of movement”.  Whether due to over use, lack of use or injuries…as we age our mobility is compromised.  Kaiut has been designed to improve a student’s joint health and mobility as they work through chronic pain, injuries, general aches and/or stiffness.  Kaiut is superb for all, including the inflexible, hyper flexible and the aging.

Lunar AcroYoga and Thai Massage with Tamara Vodovoz

Workshop at Leap Yoga Studio, Folsom CA

Sunday October 21 – 1:00 – 3:30pm

Investment: Early online registration: $25 / At the door: $30

Human touch is incredibly healing, because it nurtures and calms us. Yet, in our increasingly digital worlds, we touch each other less and less. In this workshop you will receive the stress-reducing benefits of being in touch with your partner as you explore partner yoga, therapeutic AcroYoga and Thai Massage.


This workshop also provides you the opportunity to practice mindful and kind relating following the four agreements of partner yoga: Inclusivity (non-judgement), consent, communication and safety. You will find that these aspects can be translated to your daily human interactions to create a more harmonious community around you.


Thai Yoga Massage is a form of bodywork that incorporates assisted stretching, similar to some yoga postures, rhythmic swaying and applying pressure along energy lines. There are numerous benefits of Thai massage that allow the body to open and surrender to a new rush of energy. Similarly, the giver also benefits from the gentle and easy techniques of movement similar to yin Yoga and the generation of compassion and loving kindness.  Lunar AcroYoga incorporates the principles of Thai Massage to provide the added experience of a weightless massage using gravity to assist in creating traction and extension in the receivers body.

Tamara will lead you, step by step, through simple yet powerful partner yoga, Lunar AcroYoga and Thai massage sequences for beginners. No previous experience required. Please bring a partner with whom you feel comfortable being in close contact, or be open to work with a new friend.

You will leave the workshop feeling the bliss of having had a great yoga practice as well as a great massage.

Cacao Ceremony with Winter Jendayi 

Date: Friday October 12, 2018

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Investment: $20 advance $25 day of – Advance Registration is appreciated

Cacao Dream & Sound Journey

Open your heart with sacred cacao and journey with the beat of the drum to a place within where stillness is found. In this place there is knowing, and we find surrender allowing ourselves to explore new dimensions, carried by the wings of music and purified by healing plants. In this space we find healing; cultivating trust in our allies as we receive insight and clarity from this realm to bring back with us into our daily lives.

Held in a ceremonial space, this offering combines shamanic journeying, sacred songs, and sound healing. The majority of our journey will be spent lying down as we are guided on a dream journey into other realms.

Cacao, commonly used in and known as chocolate, is a medicinal plant from Central and South America which is traditionally used in ceremonies and assists in opening the heart. Winter uses only medicinal-grade cacao sourced from a women’s collective in Guatemala.

Shamanic journeying uses drum beats as a tool to induce alpha and theta brain waves guiding one into a deep state of relaxation and meditation. In this state, intuition is awakened, allowing access to symbols and memories which offer clarity, soul guidance and connection with inner wisdom.

Workshop Description:

Intention and Flow:

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 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 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.


Friday: 6pm-9pm: Vision and Intention: Vinyasa Session

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.


Saturday: 9am-noon: Being Still with Skill: Meditation Workshop 

Being Still with Skill:  The Power of 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.

This workshop will combine a lecture/discussion period and an asana-practice session dedicated to integrating the concepts taught. To truly realize the learning opportunity, it is recommended that participants in the Chakra Workshop also attend a minimum of one Vinyasa session during the weekend.


Saturday: 2-5pm: 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.


Sunday: 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.
