Slow Flow Meditation Prep (All Levels)

Most of us cannot easily sit for meditation without first preparing our body and mind. A simple movement practice geared toward uniting the mind with the breath creates the perfect foundation for a seated meditation practice. With the body established in sthira sukham (unshakable steadiness and effortless ease) and the breath flowing smoothly, deeply, and quietly, our mind becomes peaceful and clear. Practice along with Sarah Guglielmi as she does a slow flow asana session ending with a short meditation.

About the Teacher

Sarah Guglielmi

Sarah Guglielmi, the founder of Sarah G Yoga Lifestyle Design, is a professional educator, yoga therapist, and ayurvedic wellness coach. She was initially drawn to yoga 20 years ago, while working as an engineer, and looking for relief from chronic anxiety and illness. Sarah not only regained her health but discovered a spiritual dimension to the life she finds rich and inspiring. Her overarching intention is to make the therapeutic power of yoga and ayurveda accessible and transformative for her students and clients. Over the past 15 years, Sarah has served on the faculty of the Himalayan Institute and Yoga International and has taught numerous workshops on yoga practice, yoga philosophy, subtle yoga energetics, meditation, stress management, yoga therapeutics, and ayurvedic lifestyle. She has traveled nationally as a teacher trainer for the Himalayan Institute's Yoga and Ayurveda Professional Certification Programs and is currently a member of the 200-hour and 300-hour teacher training faculty at the Himalayan Institute of Buffalo. After completing her 200-hour teacher training with the Himalayan Institute in 2002, she lived in residence for 10 years at its Pennsylvania headquarters, where she studied under Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Rolf Sovik, Sandra Anderson, Shari Friedrichsen, Kathryn Templeton, Dr. Carrie Demers, Mary Cardinal, and Dr. Rosy Mann. She is deeply grateful for the authentic and masterful training she continues to receive from the profound lineage of the Himalayan Masters. Prior to joining the Himalayan Institute, Sarah was an engineer with W. L. Gore and Associates, and holds a master's degree in materials engineering from the University of Delaware. She currently resides in Buffalo, NY.
