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.

Course Description:

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.
