Register: USD $275

Note: All of the teaching modules and recorded interactive sessions can be watched on demand at your own pace. You will have lifetime access to all of the video content.


“I felt the vast amount of material presented in both the yoga practice session and the interactive was very, very good. Sarah is a wonderful teacher and has reams of information to impart. I had the good fortune to attend her silent/Yin workshop in Claverack this summer and there were so many questions I wanted to ask her about the postures. So thanks to this, I was able to hear the answers to many of my questions here.”

“Sarah is the most brilliant, kind and compassionate teacher I have ever studied with, and her teachings are deep, relevant and full of so much wisdom.
Truly a wonderful course.”

“It was wonderful to have access to Sarah’s teachings this way whilst unable to be with her in person. The content is so rich. Thank you. More from Sarah please!”

“Very high quality. I am a technophobe and the course was very easy to use and I had no problems with it. Thank you!”

“The course is excellent. I’m doing lots of online training because I’m limited with my time as a single parent.”

Module 1: Encouraging energetic enhancement with Yin poses for the Kidney Qi, mingled with the First Foundation of Mindfulness

In this module we will practice yoga poses that benefit the kidneys and adrenals. The health of the Kidney Qi actually influences all lower back issues, as well as the overall health of the bones, the immune system, the reproductive organs and bladder. In Chinese medicine, any imbalance in the energy system has a corresponding effect on our emotional life. The kidneys are most effected by our fear states so we will learn a simple way of using the breath to meet and mitigate fear in the system. Drawing from the First Foundation of Mindfulness, we will also learn how to inquire and listen to the intelligence within our bodies.

Module 2: Encouraging energetic enhancement with Yin poses for the Liver Qi, mingled with the Second Foundation of Mindfulness

This module will target the liver and gall bladder channels which relate with detoxification and, in Chinese medicine, with the robust overall flow of our energy. Physically, it is the detox center of the body while emotionally these pathways relate with anger and resistance. We will also practice awareness of feelings, the second application of Mindfulness.

Module 3: Encouraging energetic enhancement with Yin poses for the Spleen Qi and pranayama, mingled with the Third Foundation of Mindfulness

In this module we will focus on a yin practice to benefit our digestive meridians and organs which include the stomach, spleen and pancreas, as well as soothing of emotions stored in our system related with anxiety, the main tone that shows up when we are out of balance. This sequence that will include poses that target the front of the thigh and inner groin, as well as twisting, following the pathways of where these meridians flow. We also attend to the third application of mindfulness, called mindfulness of the mind, allowing time to hear our inner mind states and develop a more therapeutic capacity for listening without distraction.

Module 4: Encouraging energetic enhancement with Yin poses for the Lung and Heart Qi with pranayama, mingled with the Fourth Foundation of Mindfulness

This module will focus on an integrated practice to benefit our respiratory and circulatory meridians/organs of the lungs and heart, as well as raise our overall vitality. This is an energetic cultivation sequence that will include alternating the breath rhythms, holding your breath, and visualizing movement and colors in certain areas. We also attend to the fourth application of mindfulness, often called mindfulness of objects of mind, and take space as an anchor of support as well.
