Yin/YangYoga with Sarah Powers
For teachers and yoga students with a strong interest in Yin yoga and Mindfulness meditation.
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 retreat can realign our clarity of mind and ease of being, leaving us refreshed and inwardly connected.
This weekend retreat will incorporate Sarah Powers’ unique approach: a practice of passive Yin poses balanced by a Yang or slow alignment based flow practice, followed by Mindfulness meditation. Drawing from Buddhist teachings, Sarah will encourage a greater capacity for emotional maturity and open sawareness. We will also practice Mindfulness meditation, both with instruction and in silence throughout the weekend.
