Breathe into Backbends

60 min - Practice


We use the body as a portal to expand the aperture and bring us to higher states of being. Join Sadia for a playful back bending and heart opening class. We begin supine surrendering to the support of the blocks beneath us to open the front body, find our center in a seated pranayama practice, move through familiar postures to find space and build gentle strength throughout the body, and explore a single heart opening shape in three different ways: Bow pose, Camel pose, and Bridge pose. You will feel light, fluid, and expansive.

Guided by Breath - Season 2


I loved the steady progression in this one! I really wasn’t feeling backbends today, but I’ve learned that sometimes the asanas you least feel like doing are the ones you need the most 😉. So, I gave this a go, and by the time we got to the “peak” poses my body was ready and the back bends felt so good! I love your organic teaching style and I’m hoping for many more seasons of “Guided By Breath”. Thank you and Happy Spring 🌸 🙏🏻
Thank you Sadia. I so love that you bring a sense of space and comfort and ease to quite profound poses. Your very carefully chosen language allows me to listen in and truly appreciate my body today, and what it is calling for. I love that I am freed of expectation, and so filled with delight. Thank you too for the knowing child; we dance together daily!
