From 10th to 16th December 2009, the COMO Shambhala Estate near Ubud in Bali will welcome Sarah Powers - a premier, California-based teacher known for her ‘Insight Yoga’ approach - to lead a special retreat., .

Sarah, who has taught Yoga since 1987, interweaves the insights and practices of Yoga and Buddhism. Her style blends both in a Yin sequence of long held poses to enhance the meridian and organ systems, combined with a flow or Yang practice, which is influenced by Viniyoga, Ashtanga, and Iyengar teachings.

Sarah also focuses on preparing the mind for effective meditation. By taking time away from our busy schedules to commit our attention to our inner development, she believes all of us have the capacity to refresh the way we live our lives. She draws from her studies in Transpersonal Psychology, as well as her training in the Vipassana, Tantric and Dzogchen practices of Buddhism.

The retreat in December will begin with silent sitting practice each morning and two Yoga sessions per day. The Yin style encourages suppleness in the body’s core while invigorating chi (prana) to flow throughout the joints, balancing the organ and meridian systems. A Yang (flow-style) asana practice follows, geared toward strengthening the core while creating ease and grace in movement.

Sarah will also be engaging with students over healthful meals, which are designed to complement the Yoga practice. Sarah is a co-founder of Metta Journeys, a service-oriented organisation that offers Yoga retreats internationally to help women and children in developing countries. She is also the author of an upcoming book Insight Yoga: Integrating Yin/Yang Yoga and Buddhist Meditation.

Other benefits of being a guest at COMO Shambhala Estate include the unique opportunity to explore a wide range of complementary treatments, from massage to Ayurveda, in a quiet and peaceful riverside location. Guests can choose from different types of accommodation including villas with pools and those with private treatment rooms. Throughout the whole retreat, the emphasis is on privacy, peace, nutritious cuisine and meaningful results with a personal assistant assigned to each guest to help maximise the wellness opportunities.
