$1,550.00 Sarah Powers Insight Yoga Intensive


Essential teachings on Yin Yoga, Mindfulness and how to sequence Yang poses with Yin sequences

For teachers and dedicated practitioners.

This special, eight-day training with internationally respected senior teacher Sarah Powers is intended to deepen one’s understanding of the experiential, philosophical and practical application of yoga and meditation. It is intended for those with at least two years of practice or more, and will benefit anyone interested in cultivating their own practice and/or their teaching. This intensive will deepen one’s ability to teach/practice both a receptive Yin style and an active flow or Yang style of yoga combined with detailed instruction for the teaching and practice of Mindfulness Meditation.

Please come with a basic understanding of the practices (having read Sarah’s book Insight Yoga), and a strong interest in committing to the further exploration of both yoga and meditation.

PLEASE NOTE – THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD AT FLOW YOGA CENTER, 1508 14TH ST., NW, WASHINGTON, DC. See below for transportation and parking info. 

In this Primary Level training we will explore:

-Yin Yoga: how, why and when to practice this style safely and effectively
– Organ health and Yoga practice (sequences for the kidneys, liver, etc.)
– Balancing the Yin style with a Yang practice to support structural strength and stability
– Proper physical alignment in active postures
– The primary focus of ujjayi breath in asana: length, depth and direction
– Mindfulness in asana
– Sequencing of postures for various levels, from beginner to intermediate student
– How to assist those with injuries
– The use of touch and hands-on adjustments
– Skillful verbal communication
– The teacher/student relationship


The physical discipline of hatha yoga centers on the harmonious embodiment of postures. How we practice these postures is as important as which asana we choose and how we orchestrate them. Increasing our repertoire of different ways to practice allows us to vary our sequences at different times in our life, continually keeping the practice appropriate as well as fresh and alive.


– Subtle body anatomy according to Yogic and Chinese philosophy
– Meridian theory and Chinese Medicine
– Buddhist Psychology and emotional maturity


Pranayama is the expansion of the life force through breath regulation. It is the profound practice of circulating and redistributing prana in both the physical and subtle body through various breathing and visualization practices.

Overview of Pranayama practices: Nine Clearing RoundsMeditation

The essence of a committed yoga practice is meditative focus and awareness. Developing and sustaining a formal meditation practice can be a continual source of insight, rejuvenation and compassion. It is a practice that can reveal and disempower our negative, fragmented aspects while potentially revealing our essential nature. Meditation can also deepen one’s awareness and acceptance of oneself and of the world, deepening one’s openness and wakefulness. We will discuss and practice Buddhist mindfulness meditation (Sati Patthana – The Four Foundations of Mindfulness), with an emphasis on how to share these practices with others.
