Rolf Gates is the exemplar Yogapreneur. In addition to owning what was named one of Travel and Leisure’s top yoga studios in the world, Gates conducts teacher trainings all over the world, penned a popular book, Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections of the Path of Yoga, offers DVDs and has added life coaching to his wellness stable.
