Growing up as a self-described wild child on the beaches of Malibu in the 1970s, Sarah Powers is a passionate student of life with a curious mind. She found yoga while in grad school at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and never looked back. Following a spinal injury, she focused her studies more deeply on anatomy and Yin yoga.

Today, Sarah is one of the world’s best known and most respected Yin yoga teachers. She is the co-founder of the Insight Yoga Institute, which interweaves yoga, Buddhism, Taoism and Transpersonal Psychology into an integral practice to discover and enliven the body, heart and mind.

In this episode, Genny and Sarah have a potent conversation about her journey of self-exploration and how creating a healthy relationship to both our gifts and our brokenness is vital for transformation.

When discussing her views on blending traditions and lineages, Sarah shares, “I feel like there are many paths in to liberating the constrictions of feeling like we’re separate from our life and from each other. To find one that make us feel like it gives us wings rather than combat boots is helpful.”

She goes on to advise, “Trust what you are attracted to, then notice what that particular teacher or lineage of teachings is possibly leaving out – because what we’re doing as well as what we’re not doing are both important.”
