Practices that build a stable Earth foundation for living an embodied and creative life!
This DVD features Sarah's remarkable blend of dynamic yoga movements, Yin-style held postures and skillfully guided meditations. We humans are a confluence of earth 'Yin' energy and heavenly 'Yang' energy. Just as our world could not exist without the Yin support of the ground below and the Yang space of the sky above, our health and vitality depend upon these complementary upper and lower energies.
Our yoga practice draws strength from these two primordial forces of life and increases chi migration throughout the whole body while improving pranic circulation through the Hara, the belly center which is the wellspring of our life force. The emphasis in the Insight Yoga | Earth DVD is on enhancing the vitality in the Hara while encouraging strength and stability in our legs and abdomen-the 'earth' areas of the body.
