    This review is from: Insight Yoga (Paperback)

    I have been waiting a long time to read Sarah’s new offering to the world of yoga. She didn’t disappoint. I highly recommend Insight Yoga to everyone who loves Yin Yoga. However, the book is not just about Yin. It is a complete book on Yoga, both the active, dynamic yang style and the deeper, allowing yin style. Sarah’s eloquence shines through in her writing as clearly as it does in her classes.

    Insight Yoga offers a very good description of the Daoist philosophy of chi and the organs. Sarah does a great job of explaining the role of the organs from our Western understanding and from the Daoist view of their importance to our physical, mental and emotional health: it is the best description I have come across. Many students are curious as to which organs are related to which emotional imbalances. Their questions are answered clearly here. Sarah also does a wonderful job of showing how the various postures affect the meridians and their related organs. There are several flows that anyone can follow: both yin and yang. The yang sequences range from easily accessible to challenging. The photos are large, clear and very helpful in describing the postures and variations.

    This book is not just about postures, energy or Yin Yoga. Sarah also blends her unique meditative teaching into the full yogic journey. She explains pranayama and meditation. She has a complete section on mindfulness training preceded by an introduction to the teachings of the Buddha (Buddha Dharma). This book should be on the shelves of every yogi, whether a yinster or a yangster. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

    This is a book I can grab onto as a guidebook for developing my Yoga practice, as well deepening and expanding my practice. The photos allow me to have a clear vision of each posture and modifications of the pose. That really helps me and answers the questions of how to do the poses correctly. Everyday, when I roll out my yoga mat I open Sarah’s book as a security blanket and a guide. Sarah has a way of helping me to learn about myself on all levels, by being curious and continually inquisitive. She invites you to experience mini-meditations in the yin yoga poses, stimulates your mind by explaining Chinese meridian lines and how we can affect them; and she offers creative ideas for a flow series to compliment the long, slow holds of yin yoga.
    Sarah clearly reveals her development and passion for yoga. She invites the student to create a practice that can stir deep feelings of what being vibrantly alive really means.
    Learning about the Chinese meridians and how yoga poses can clear, open and increase the amount of energy moving through the body, is invigorating and calming at that same time.
    This book is terrific. I like that there are poses and sequences of poses, Chinese Meridian and organ health theory; and a collection of Pranayama breathing techniques to work with.
    Sarah’s explains mindfulness training clearly and gives guideline including the Four Foundations of Mindfulness explained in depth. This book is a MUST in your yoga library and yoga studio and by your yoga mat. It weaves an understanding of Yoga, Chinese Medicine and Buddhism into one guidebook that is a joy to open and explore again and again I learn something new every time I open Insight Yoga.. It is a wealth of practical and personal information for increased healing and well being.

    This review is from: Insight Yoga (Paperback)

    Sarah Powers takes us to the next level where yoga can truly impact many aspects of our lives. Her intelligence, eloquence and beauty shine through on every page in simple, clear text alongside informative pictures of her innovative poses. Central to her Insight Yoga are the connections between our body, emotions and mind. Through a customizable mixture of yoga — Yin (invented by Sarah and Paul Grilley which targets joints, tendons and ligaments and is more passive with poses held for about 3 – 5 minutes) and Yang (Hatha which targets our muscles and is more active) as well as Mindfulness Meditation, she makes it easy for us to self-regulate our energies and self-heal physically and emotionally. For anyone who wants to radiate from a core of well-being, Insight Yoga is a must.
