Sarah Powers

Sarah PowersSarah Powers began teaching in 1987. She is the co-founder of the Insight Yoga Institute with her husband Ty and author of Insight Yoga, which interweaves Yoga, Buddhism, Taoism, and Transpersonal Psychology into an integral practice to discover and enliven the body, heart and mind. Her yoga style blends both a Yin sequence of floor poses to enhance the meridian and organ systems with an alignment-based slow flow or Yang practice, influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, Iyengar and Qigong teachings. Sarah feels that enlivening the physical and pranic bodies, as well as learning to meet our psychological reactivity is paramount for preparing one to deepen and nourish insights into one’s essential nature–a natural state of awareness.

She draws from her studies in Transpersonal Psychology, as well as her in-depth training in the Vipassana, Tantric and Dzogchen practices of Buddhism. Her main influences have been Tsoknyi Rinpoche, Jennifer Welwood, Lama Tsultrim Allione, Bhante Gunaratana, Lama Pema Dorje, Stephen and Martine Batchelor and B. Alan Wallace. Sarah leads trainings and silent retreats with her husband Ty.
