Description

This is homebase. We begin our challenge with a grounding practice to help you find center, develop a sense of sure-footedness, and establish conditions for takeoff and readiness for the wild terrain ahead. We move through modified Sun Salutes to find space in the body and connect to the breath, ground into the hips and legs in squats, Goddess Pose, and Skandasana, connect to the core in seated poses, and rest in a restorative posture to open the front body. You will discover a sense of presence and rootedness.
What You'll Need: Mat, Block

Fell in love with your teaching during the lockdown live sessions last year and super excited to do this challenge with you to close out ‘21 and start ‘22 fresh!

After a period which found my body and soul craving restorative and yin practice (too much holiday hustle and bustle, too much overwhelm in the news) I finally awoke today sensing it was time for me to join in this much-anticipated challenge. Sadia, your bright personality and enthusiasm carried me along with you on this creative wave…totally worth the wait! So looking forward to the rest of this season ❤️🙏🏻

Excellent class.  I ate so much sugar at the last month and gained 4 pounds that I can feel how out of shape I am.  I will probably do this one several times before moving on.  Sadia has such elegance in her moves!

Sadia, this was so much fun, but I the first season didn't move with this kind of tempo, so I was pleasantly shocked. The early flow felt amazing and then boom: squats and goddess poses... Great leg workout! I should add I rode a nice tempo on an indoor cycling route, so legs had already fired. I stopped a few times to get the moves more exact. On-demand rocks! Definitely wanted a longer Savasana. 
David Goldstein Hee— yes, this series is quite a bit different from Guided by Breath!  But as you can see, it's still undergirded by the same desire to touch a little freedom, and delivered with the same far-out flavor. (How do I get Ben & Jerry's to create a limited edition pint of On the Verge?)

How did the 30-minute format feel? About savasana— I hear you; try muting me and resting for as long as you like...
