Yoga can be understood as a set of behaviours that encourages a holistic experience of the body, heart, and mind. It is a process of fully inhabiting ourselves. 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. 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.
This 5-day workshop will incorporate Sarah Powers’ unique approach: a practice of passive Yin poses balanced by an active or Yang flow practice, followed by Loving Kindness and Mindfulness meditation. Drawing from Buddhist teachings, Sarah will give brief talks before the Yin and Yang practices to encourage a greater capacity for emotional maturity and open awareness. We will also practice Mindfulness Meditation, both with instruction and in silence throughout the five days. Sarah is pictured here with Sarah Owen who teaches Yin Yoga at Jivamukti Yoga Sydney.
