Insight/Yin Yoga Training: Brightening the Inner Body
Secondary Level with Sarah and Ty Powers in Thailand
Drawing from Sarah’s book Lit From Within, this retreat includes teachings and practices for developing and integrating the energetic, psychological, and meditative domains within us.
Prerequisite: Please come having attended a foundational Yin Yoga training from a dedicated teacher. We consider this a Secondary Level training.
Upcoming 2023 Primary Level trainings with Sarah:
- July 29-Aug 5 in DC US
- Nov 18-25 in Shanghai and ONLINE with Chinese translation
In order to receive the YA 40 hour Certificate of Completion, attendance in the entire program is required along with a brief essay sharing your experiences with the material.
After we have established a clear understanding of how and why to practice Yin yoga (studied in the Primary Level training), we can begin to look more closely at the pranic and mind training aspects available to us while in the practices, the inner methods of Yin Yoga. In this course, we will NOT focus on where the meridians flow in each pose and how to get into the shapes safely, (assuming you already know these things), INSTEAD we will explore the contemplative inner experiences that are available in each pose. Sarah will teach various breath patterns and retentions, visualisations for the health of the organs, contemplations in the poses, as well as the essential themes and practices of a Buddhist view for Yin Yoga.
Each day will include a talk, yin yoga session with inner practices emphasized, seated meditation practices led by both Sarah and Ty, as well as interactive diads and discussion time. In this retreat setting, time for individual asana practice, swimming, and resting will also be included.
Study and Reading:
Students will be provided a reading list to enjoy prior to attending the retreat.
A training manual will be handed out on the first day of class.

Course Description The ability to gather together and be with teachings and practices, silence, nature and each other quietly is a great privilege and something many of us have been without
The ability to gather together and be with teachings and practices, silence, nature and each other quietly is a great privilege and something many of us have been without for far too long. We are looking forward to welcoming each of you.
We will practice many sessions of meditation coupled with Yin and Yang Yoga, time for hiking and swimming, sauna and massage, partner inquiry sessions, gourmet plant based meals (with some dairy options), as well as private and small group sessions with Sarah or Ty for each participant.
The teachings will emphasize the heart opening methods inspired by the 7 points of Mind Training taught by Atisha, an 11th century Indian Yogi who spent his later years transforming the Tibetan Buddhist views on compassion and awareness as lived in everyday life. These down to earth teachings have been widely followed for centuries, earning Atisha at the time the nickname ’Sublime teacher of impulsive behavior and its results.’
In advance of the retreat, you may enjoy reading, Always Maintain A Joyful Mind by Pema Chodron, Sarah’s new book Lit From Within as well as viewing Sarah’s teachings on Opening the Mind Lojong 1-6.
We look forward to each of you being able to drop in, open up, and dive deep as you ignite and reclaim the profound resources dwelling within you.
