Product 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 DVD cultivate a balance of these two vital forces by enhancing the Heavenly energy within our body using a combination of yoga movement, held postures and skillfully guided meditations. Suitable for beginner to intermediate-level practitioners. The DVD also includes bonus audio MP3s of all practices. Equipment needed: yoga mat.

DVD highlights include:
- Practice Overview: A short presentation on the principles of Insight Yoga with further details about each practice on this DVD.
- Practice 1: Strengthening Lung Chi: A series of upper body poses, inversions and yin backbends, with breath exercises and visualizations to strengthen the lungs and increase overall circulation and vitality in the body (65 min).
- Practice 2: Ground Support: Breathing into the Hara: A series of yin and yang postures practiced on our backs, nourishing the spine, hips and abdomen (45 min).
- Karuna Meditation: A guided compassion meditation in which we use our mental and emotional obstacles as opportunities for developing kindness and sensitivity toward our vulnerabilities as well as an empathic connection with others (20 min).
- English Subtitles and Audio MP3s of all practices

I had enough money for only one Dvd of Sarah Powers so I read the reviews hoping to chose between her Yin energy video and this one. When I read that this one included a head stand I felt intimidated and purchased the other one. I like the Yin very much. It is a strong workout and leaves me feeling well grounded. In hindsight however, this one would have been the more appropriate work out for me.

Let me preface this by saying, if you don't want to do a headstand Sarah offers other options. In fact, Sarah recommends you omit headstand unless you have already established a confident headstand practice prior to using this video. She also suggests you learn how to do one with a live teacher and NOT from a dvd. I agree with her. Bad alignment is dangerous. Don't do a headstand unless you know what you are doing. Otherwise, just do the alternate poses she demonstrates.

There are two sequences both designed to balance yang energy. This work out is much more meditative than her Yin energy dvd. I liked the visualizations. Yang energy is depleted by prolonged sadness. Depleted yang energy weakens the lungs. I have experienced prolonged sadness since my husband left me in 2007, in addition I used to smoke cigarettes. So this was an appropriate workout for me on more than one level.

After completing one of these workouts, it's not like I feel sweaty and tired. I feel balanced, relaxed, ready to face life. My lungs and the space around them in my chest cavity feels vulnerable and sensitive. This is a heart warming exercise, good for creating focus. Some of the poses look pretty simple if you are watching Sarah and her husband. I suggest in lieu of watching them listen carefully to the cueing and follow the exact directions.

NOTE: I received a free copy of this DVD to review for the web site Metapsychology Online Reviews; you can read a more detailed version of my review on that site.

INSIGHT YOGA HEAVEN is one of two new DVDs offered by yoga instructor Sara Powers. Powers and her husband, Ty Powers, are founders of the Insight Yoga Institute. The DVD insert explains that Insight Yoga involves a balance between the lower body, which is the earthy or "Yin" region, and the upper body, the heavenly or "Yang" region. In Insight Yoga Heaven, the focus is on the relationship between the earth-based energy, which represents stability, and balancing the opening of Yang energy in the upper body.

The Main Menu of the DVD offers the following options:

Introduction (1.5 min)
Practices Menu
Special Features Menu

Selecting the Practices menu opens the following submenu:

Practice Overview (9 min; audio only)
Yoga Practices
Strengthening the Lung Chi (65 min)
Ground Support: Breathing Into the Hara (45 min)
Meditation Practice
Karuna Meditation (16 min)

I have provided a general overview of each practices below. Powers and her husband are shown in a studio with wooden floors, and Powers instructs via voiceover.

YOGA PRACTICE #1: Strengthening the Lung Chi
This practice combines active postures with yin poses. Powers begins seated on the heels, using diaphragmatic breathing to focus on the hara (belly center). This is followed by holding happy babies pose. Next comes a series of flowing postures (cat/cow, downward facing dog, standing forward bend, dolphin pose, plank); Powers concludes this sequence with shoulder-opening work using a strap.

I really enjoy this DVD. It offers a nice slow-paced yang workout and finishes with some long holds (yin). It's great for the days when I don't feel up to a strong workout but still need to stretch my muscles.

Sarah Powers has a pleasant voice, and her instructions are very clear. I know nothing about energy meridians, but notice I do feel good after this workout.

I would rate this as a beginner workout, or good for when one does not want a strenuous work-out.
