Guided by Breath Artwork
Season 1 - Episode 6

Moving as Breath

60 min - Practice


Sadia guides us through an introspective exploration of the link between mind and breath. Mindful opening postures help us play into the uniqueness of our practice, simple repetitive movements let the mind drop even deeper into the body and the breath, and gentle holds in powerful standing poses challenge the balance between effort and ease. You will feel clear and calm.

Greetings from your neighbor in Connecticut! There’s such magic during fall in New England right? Today’s practice was nice and balancing, really helped me get out of my own head for an hour. Thank you 🙏🏻 PS I don’t know why, but as the companion of two kitties, I had a thought that “Crouching Tiger Hidden Cat” seemed apropos of that pose earlier 🐅😽

Thank you Sadia, for your wisdom and insight during this series. I will be taking these forward in my practice. I love the thought of entering the practice by sitting first in an antechamber and just taking in the space. It made me feel my body and breath are an awe-inspiring cathedral.

Thank you Sadia, I loved this practice with the breath.  Feeling and experiencing the movement with the breath carried me through the day.  By the way I added some aromatherapy to the mix and that just made things smooch more grounded.  Thank you

I loved the peanut butter and jelly analogy, the yin-yoking comment and just how much fun it is to move “for the breath”.  My shoulders really burn with your workouts. Much more fun than doing weights. Thanks for sharing your light! 
David, I have SO enjoyed reading ALL of your marvelous comments, which serve to illuminate all that came through me— not at all FROM me— in the process of teaching. The  generosity of spirit and deep insight you share here are why I continue to answer the call to teach. I've been so moved and tickled by each and every one of your offerings. Thank you so, SO much. Am wishing you all the very best for a miraculous new year!

So glad!!! I feel like I am back in college and the dead heads commandeered the sound system with their favorite bootleg and things would get pleasantly weird. Just started reading this book, and this quote sums up why I do Yoga and also love teaching (HS English/NJ). 

“The best moments usually
occur when a person's body or
mind is stretched to its limits
in a voluntary effort to
accomplish something difficult
and worthwhile. Optimal
experience is thus something
that we make happen.”
