Certified instructor description:

Insight Yoga recognizes that our health and vitality depends on a free flow of energy in both our lower body, the earthly 'yin' region, and our upper body, the heavenly 'yang' region. The practices on this 2-DVD set (containing the “Heaven” and “Earth” DVDs) cultivate a balance of these two vital forces by enhancing the Earthly grounding aspects of our nature and the Heavenly energy within our body, using a combination of yoga movement, held postures and skillfully guided meditations. Sarah Powers interweaves the insights and practices of Yoga and Buddhism into an integral practice to enliven the body, heart and mind. Her yoga style blends both a Yin style of long held poses combined with a flowing Yang practice influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, and alignment based teachings. Suitable for beginner to intermediate-level practitioners. The DVDs also includes bonus audio MP3s of all practices. Equipment needed: yoga mat.
