guided breath meditations

While the handstands and trick poses and extremely deep backbends are shining in the spotlight of the minds of many when the word “yoga” comes to mind, the breath is there, waiting to be focused on, waiting to be explored. It is the foundation of your yoga practice, it is a practice in and of itself, and it can change your life, starting today. A physical asana practice can be a beautiful way to move and direct energy throughout your body, but let the breath be your home base, the place you can always go, an autonomic part of life that becomes under your conscious control.

Benefits of meditation can include:

  • Reduced anxiety and stress

  • Improved sleep

  • Prevention of premature aging

  • Lengthened attention span, improved memory

  • Increased self-awareness

  • Improved cognitive and learning ability

  • Lower blood pressure and heart rate

  • and much, much more!

Please enjoy these guided breath meditations as you begin your yoga practice and overall wellness journey. It has been said that one minute of focused, guided breath meditation can create positive physical, chemical, emotional, and mental change in the mind and body for up to an hour. Created to be short and sweet, or deep and lengthy, there is a practice here to meet you where you are right now. If you’re feeling unsure or are new to meditation, know that one minute of a meditation practice is better than none. Be kind with yourself, meet yourself where you’re at, and build only as you’re able.

Asanas will not change your life, breathing will.
