Description

Yin Yoga for a Mindful Life  With Sarah Owen

Practices to Awaken the Body, Heart and Mind.

Friday 27th July 2012 ~ 6 – 8.30pm ~ $40

In this nourishing and transformative workshop, Sarah will guide students through a series of yin yoga poses that encourage stability, groundedness and connection to the Earth centre in the body, enhancing overall vitality and increasing circulation of prana throughout the body.

These sequences develop flexibility and physical freedom, as well as developing mental stability and clarity that allow us to disengage from the mental habits of reactivity, and instead, to develop a wakeful, inquisitive attitude – leading to inner wisdom and insight.

This workshop will include deeply nourishing yin yoga poses, energizing pranayama (breathing) practices, and a loving kindness meditation. Yin yoga is a meditative asana practice that uses long, passively-held poses to stimulate the balancing of energy channels in the body. Using yin yoga poses and simple pranayama techniques, students will begin to cultivate a sensitivity to, and refinement of, of energy body (pranic body). This inner knowledge can then be used to benefit all beings everywhere!

Sarah Owen completed her initial Yoga Teacher Training at Samadhi Yoga in 2006, under the guidance of Katie Manitsas and Sue White. She spent the next five years teaching numerous classes, workshops and retreats as a yoga teacher at Samadhi Yoga. She is currently continuing her studies through the Insight Yoga Institute, under the mentorship of Sarah Powers (USA).  The Insight Yoga Institute emphasises practices for awakening the body, heart and mind, through a blending of Advanced Yoga Teachings (ethics, asana, pranayama, and meditation) with the Philosophies and Practices of Eastern Wisdom Traditions, including teachings from Taoist and Buddhist (Theravada, Mahayana, Zen and Tibetan) traditions. Through the Insight Yoga Institute, students commit to a daily practice of dynamic yoga postures, combined with yin yoga (passive postures), pranayama, and meditation practices (vipassana and shamata traditions, as well as loving-kindness practices such as karuna and metta-bhavana meditations).  Sarah believes that one’s yoga practice becomes most solid when built upon kindness towards self and others – the commitment to the practice will become evident in how we choose to lead our lives and how we treat other beings that we come in contact with.

As well as being a yoga teacher, Sarah is also passionate about work in the field of community development, having attained a Masters Degree in International Social Development, a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies and a Bachelor of Education. Sarah has had many years experience in Mexico and Latin America through living, studying, working and travelling there over many years.
