Insight Yoga | Mingling Heaven and Earth
Humans are a confluence of earthly ‘Yin’ energy and heavenly ‘Yang’ energy. Just as our world could not exist without the Yin support of the ground below and the Yang space of the sky above, our health and vitality depend upon these complementary upper and lower energies.
These yoga practices draw strength from these two primordial forces of life and increase chi migration throughout the whole body while improving pranic circulation through the Hara, the belly center which is the wellspring of our life force.

About Sarah Powers
Sarah Powers began teaching in 1987. She interweaves the insights and practices of Yoga and Buddhism into an integral practice to enliven the body, heart and mind. Her yoga style blends both a Yin sequence of long held poses to enhance the meridian and organ systems, combined with a flow or Yang practice, influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, and alignment based teachings.
Her Buddhist training in Insight Meditation includes many retreats with Spirit Rock trained teachers, time spent in a Monastery in Burma, and a dharma teacher training with Bhante Gunaratana. She has also sat a number of Zen and Chan retreats. Her main influence for the last 7 years has been the Dzogchen teacher, Tsoknyi Rinpoche.
She teaches retreats with her husband Ty, and together they home school their teenage daughter, Imani Jade. They live in Marin, CA.
