SARAH AND TY POWERS

Integrating Yoga, Buddhism and Psychology

ABOUT SARAH

Sarah Powers is the co-founder of the Insight Yoga Institute as well as the author of Insight Yoga and Lit from Within, which interweaves Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism, and Transpersonal psychology into an integrated practice to enliven the body, heart, and mind. Sarah has been teaching for 30+ years, blending both a Yin sequence of long-held floor poses to enhance the meridian and organ systems while often engaging in inquiry practice, with a mindfully-based flow yoga practice. Sarah is trained in both Psychosynthesis and the Internal Family Systems psychological models, and has been a student of spiritual psychology for over 35 years. She draws from her education and participation in long retreats in the Vipassana, Tantric and Dzogchen practices of Buddhism.

TESTIMONIALS

Slide

As a student of Sarah and Ty’s since 2010, I have had the good fortune to attend several trainings and retreats through IYI. Each one significant and transformative; driving my personal and spiritual exploration and growth as a teacher and practitioner. The supportive container created by fellow retreaters and Sarah and Ty facilitates authentic, deep work. I always leave with more courage and trust in my heart. I am forever grateful.
— Elissa B.

Sarah & Ty Powers are both inspiring and motivational teachers. They have a lot of knowledge and wisdom and they teach with great compassion. I hope to be able to empower my students the same way they did for me.
— Nathalie B.

This was my first training with Sarah and I can say from the heart that it provided the best education of my life in terms of its usefulness within my own practice. I learned ways to traverse thoughts that were plaguing me since childhood—it was a very powerful and potent experience and I highly recommend this training. I look forward to the next one.
— Jessica de la T.

ABOUT THE INSIGHT YOGA INSTITUTE

Sarah and Ty Powers created the Insight Yoga Institute (IYI) in 2010. Having both interwoven Yoga, Buddhism and Psychological approaches for three decades in their retreats and trainings, they decided to create a more formal umbrella to draw people together in a like-minded community. Of particular interest to Sarah and Ty is that participants learn how to commit to an integrated daily home practice for the body, heart and mind through yogic, Buddhist and psychological teachings and methods.
