Moving Into Meditation: Yin/Yang Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation

Yoga Source Presents

A Workshop with Sarah Powers June 25, 26 & 27


This workshop is suitable for anyone who has been doing Yoga for at least one year and has a strong interest in meditation. In this workshop Sarah will provide an atmosphere for balancing body, heart and mind through active and passive yoga poses, as well as offer teachings on Mindfulness meditation to help us deepen (or develop) a skillful and committed meditation practice. Yin yoga is an essential compliment to more active styles of yoga and offers a vehicle to develop our contemplative nature. The Yin style also keeps the body supple at its core while encouraging stagnant chi (prana) to flow throughout the joints, engendering a quality of steady ease. The flow practice helps maintain core stability while enhancing creative, active energy.


This workshop will focus on the integration of our Yin and Yang aspects of being, creating a practice that values both vitality and insight. A guided silent mindfulness meditation will follow the yoga sessions.


Sarah Powers began teaching in 1987. She is the founder and author of Insight Yoga, which interweaves the insights and practices of Yoga, Buddhism, Chinese medicine, and Transpersonal Psychology into an integral practice to enliven the body, heart and mind. Her yoga style blends both a Yin sequence of floor poses to enhance the meridian and organ systems, combined with an alignment-based slow flow or Yang practice, influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, and Iyengar teachings. Sarah feels that enlivening the physical and pranic bodies, as well as learning to open to our emotional difficulties 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 teachers are Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Jennifer Welwood, Lama Tsultrim Allione, and Lama Pema Dorje.
