Insight Yoga is therapeutic. It integrates complementary streams of yoga, Buddhism, and psychology to enhance physical, energetic, mental, and emotional balance.
It may be undertaken on yoga mats and meditation cushions and include yin yoga sequences, meditation, slow flow, and inquiry. But it is also an approach to life that may be supported by 1:1 sessions to stimulate inquiry into a given disturbance of the body-heart-mind system and identify practice methods to address specific challenges.
Experienced yoga teachers who have trained in all aspects of the integrated practice--including various meditations, Internal Family Systems, and other modalities--may be endorsed to teach Insight Yoga by its founder Sarah Powers.
Sarah Jane is an endorsed teacher, assists on retreats, and mentors students in the Insight Yoga Institute's 500-hour teacher training. Of all its methods, she specializes in yin yoga and the Buddhist Four Foundations of Mindfulness and other meditations. She draws on these and other influences for her Thursday evening Insight Yoga class and seasonal Insight Yoga Practice Series and workshops.
