As water purifies your skin, so the breath is capable of cleaning your whole being. And as you reconnect with the breath through effortless observation and increased awareness, a door to the unexpected is opened. There are infinite discoveries and benefits to be experienced: a feeling of lightness, renewed energy, a greater calmness and clarity of mind. The breath comes and purifies at a deep level.
Sandra Sabatini's 'Breath' is full of insights and images, distilled from her yoga classes, to help you learn how to listen to the breath and how to approach some simple positions. Whether you are a complete beginner or already practice yoga, these subtle, gentle suggestions can guide you naturally to a deeper appreciation of the essence of yoga.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sandra Sabatini was born in Australia to Italian parents, grew up in Africa, and returned to Italy in her 20s. She started studying yoga in her early 30s, and in 1985 became a pupil of Vanda Scaravelli, author of Awakening the Spine.
Scaravelli died in 1999 at the age of 91, and she and Sandra have trained many teachers and students all over the world in a gentle but radical yoga that emphasises working with the breath, gravity and the spine. Now Sandra teaches established groups in Europe and the Middle East, as well as near her home on the Tuscan / Umbrian borders.
- Definitley one for your collection!! Review by Yoga Teacher
I have the first edition of this book with the blue cover, Sandra's descriptions of the breath in all aspects of doing and non doing, stillness and asana are beautiful. I got the book when I was a student teacher, but now as a teacher I bring it into class often. I definitely recommend this book whether you are a regular class goes or a teacher.
