Insight Yoga A Yoga and Meditation Retreat

For everyone with min. 1 year of yoga practice.

Mindfulness is a letting go of all motivations to manipulate the moment, a 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 yoga and mindfulness in our practice, we learn to come home to our bodies and minds, which opens us to an authentic intimacy with our lives and ourselves. WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE
• Yin and yang yoga
• Buddhist meditation
• Psychological inquiry

In this program, Sarah and Ty Powers share their unique approach to yoga and mindfulness: a practice of passive Yin poses balanced by a slow, alignment-based flow, with several sessions and talks involving mindfulness meditation.

Drawing from Buddhist teachings, they encourage a greater capacity for emotional maturity and open awareness. You return home with a clarity of mind and ease of being that leaves you feeling refreshed and inwardly connected.

Note Most of this retreat is held in social silence. A prior understanding of both Yin Yoga and mindfulness meditation is needed; this is not a program for beginners.
