Movement as Meditation
This delicious and deliberate class with Guy uses a classical approach to dissipating physical and mental agitation and lethargy so that you can rest in clarity during meditation. It starts with a full-spectrum physical practice, followed by an extended savasana, and then into a breath practice and a final meditation. This is a great way to use your own body and breath to calm and center yourself, while fully experiencing the meditative shift from “doing” to “being”.
This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 6 of Grounding and Strength 14-Day Beginner Yoga Challenge.

This class was perfect for my post migraine. It was a calm gentle stretch with a wonderful finish. I will come back to this class. Thank you Guy
lovely perfectly paced class. sure enjoyed the breathing and meditation ending.
I liked this class, but I don't feel it is a beginner level class. It is much more like an Intermediate I, in my opinion. The pace is too fast for a true beginner or someone returning to practice after some time. I do a lot of DYWM videos and prefer intermediate level classes and this fits in that category. My husband is doing the 14 day challenge with me and found it hard to keep up. Also, some of the cues were confusing for someone with less experience. Some modifications could have been offered, such as the use of blocks, to make poses more accessible to beginners who typically have less strength and flexibility to find and maintain a pose. Just my opinion on the class for beginners...it was still a great class, and was perfect for me. And, of course, I do love Guy!
