“Breathe in deeply to bring your mind home to your body.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

During this particularly stressful time of COVID, I’m holding my breath more closely, aware of the power it contains to ground, relax, open, and center me. For so much of my life, I took this amazing resource for granted, and now that I have learned to work with my breath, I completely relate to the assertion that “deep breaths are like little love notes to your body.” Besides making my life possible, my breath has become a teacher, friend, and ally.

Following is a list of videos that can provide you with the information you need to make your breath an even greater gift and resource.
