Banyen's Description: 

Acclaimed yoga and meditation teacher Sarah Powers is known and loved for her unique approach—Insight Yoga—which combines traditional yoga with the meridians of Chinese medicine, as well as Buddhist meditation. Using Yin (passive) and Yang (dynamic) poses, she demonstrates a series of different yoga sequences that bring benefit to organs, muscles, joints, and tendons—as well as the mind. She also provides a foundational explanation of traditional Chinese medicine theory and mindfulness meditation instruction. Sarah Powers brings us on an inspiring journey inward, and shows the path for cultivating a lasting relationship with yoga that  strengthens our physical well-being and our mental and emotional clarity. Excellent, clear photographs show the poses and sequences.

In describing her own journey, Sarah recalls a certain “aha” moment:

I now knew it was possible to feel fully content and undivided within myself. I sensed that a regular yoga practice could be an invaluable tool for radically opening my body and mind, for helping me see my habits of conditioning, and for preparing the ground for true understanding and insight.

“This is a teaching of great warmth and intelligence.”—Richard Rosen, author of The Yoga of Breath

“When I first met Sarah it didn’t take me long to figure out that she was a yogini of relentless curiosity and great depth. In Insight Yoga she lets the reader into her thinking, her practice, and her life in a way that both inspires and instructs.” —Judith Hanson Lasater, author of A Year of Living Your Yoga

“Sarah Powers’s synthesis of wisdom traditions is awesome. Indeed, each tradition is like a transparent map, which when overlaid one upon another, gives a more complete rendering of the Living Event in which we are all participants.” —Erich Schiffmann, author of Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving Into Stillness

Also available by Sarah Powers is her Insight Yoga DVD.
