Insight Yoga: A Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation Intensive With Sarah Powers
in Tokyo, Japan
June 14 – 16, 2019
Mindfulness is an attitude we adopt in which we let go of all motivations to manipulate the moment and develop the capacity to observe without willful interference. Yoga can be understood as a set of behaviors that encourages a holistic experience of the body, heart, and mind. It is a process of fully inhabiting ourselves. When we include both in our practice, we learn to easily come home to our bodies and minds, regardless of what is happening in us or to us, opening us freshly to an authentic intimacy with our lives and ourselves. Taking time away from our busy schedules to come on a yoga and mindfulness intensive can realign our clarity of mind and ease of being, leaving us refreshed and inwardly connected.
This weekend intensive will incorporate Sarah Powers’ unique approach: a sequence of passive Yin poses to balance the organ system, and detailed instruction and practice of Mindfulness, including time spent with partners to clarify these methods. Drawing from Buddhist teachings, Sarah will also encourage a greater capacity for emotional maturity and open awareness through Compassion practices. Her main intention for each student attending is to encourage a skillful home practice of yin yoga coupled with a continuous and inspired daily meditation practice.
This intensive is for teachers and dedicated yoga students.
We ask that you attend all three days and hours of the intensive.
