Yin Insight with Sarah Powers

07 Nov 2014

Details

Insight Yoga is a body/mind yogic path of awareness that creates a regular vehicle for insights to occur. It draws from the wisdom of Yoga, Buddhism, Chinese medicine and Transpersonal psychology. Insight Yoga involves 4 main quadrants of development that are each interdependent: the body, the heart, the mind, and relationships.

For the body we engage in a regular active and receptive (or Yin/Yang) asana practice that is designed to develop and maintain pliancy in the muscles as well as the joints, to increase strength and vitality in all the systems of the body, and to cultivate a sensitivity to, and a re-balancing and refinement of the energy body- the gateway to the experience of an ease of being.

Sarah will give a brief talk describing how to integrate the body, heart, mind, and relational awareness into our regular practice and then following a slow flow sequence, we will drop into a nourishing Yin practice, where Sarah will focus on mindfulness methods for cultivating insight, ending with a meditation practice.

This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in going deeper into the contemplative, meditative aspects of yoga.

ABOUT SARAH

Sarah Powers began teaching in 1987. She is the founder and author of Insight Yoga, which interweaves the insights and practices of Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism, and Transpersonal Psychology into an integral practice to discover and enliven the body, heart and mind. Her yoga style blends both a Yin sequence of floor poses (inspired by Paul Grilley) to enhance the meridian and organ systems, combined with an alignment-based slow flow or Yang practice, influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, Iyengar teachings, and QIgong. Sarah feels that enlivening the physical and pranic bodies, as well as learning to meet our psychological reactivity is paramount for preparing one to deepen and nourish insights into one's essential nature--a natural state of awareness. She draws from her studies in Transpersonal Psychology, as well as her in-depth training in the Vipassana, Tantric and Dzogchen practices of Buddhism. Her main influences have been Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Jennifer and John Welwood, Lama Tsultrim Allione, Bhante Gunaratana, Lama Pema Dorje, Stephen and Martine Batchelor and B. Alan Wallace.
