Your Heart, Your Life

Available worldwide

In a day, in a year, throughout a lifetime, in one breath, we have an opportunity to experience many transformations. This practice with Cielo English is one that will empower & honor the connection to our purest essence. The play between the physical strength of our body and the will of our hearts will be brought to life through a series of asana leading to playful peak poses, your heart is the center. This deep awareness of being and becoming requires the cultivation of the consistency of courage to know ourselves, to reveal our authentic self, and to honor the gift that is our life by the way we live that truth each day.

Hi Sasha!
Just wanted to say thank you for enjoying the practice. I am in recovery after car accidents, and I have had to step back from many parts of my life... hearing this today was really meaningful to me. I hope that I will be filming again in the near future, I have learned so much since that video was filmed, so many empowering tools to share with people to help enjoy life and feel better every day. Keep up the work on and off your mat ~ it's a light that just gets brighter I post lots of my favorite things on FB you can always check out what's there.

in love and light,

Beautiful theme, words and sequence. Thank you!

Thank you, thank you for such an amazing class. I could feel that this class was from a place of the heart. This was my first class with Cielo and I my body, mind, and soul was fed during this class. I hope I can find more of Cielo's classes on Gaia tv! This class can seem to flow quickly at times, but you just have to listen closely and stay in the flow :) I do not have head stand or side crow in my practice.....yet! -but I tried and did crow instead, which she does end up doing anyway!! There are wise words of wisdom through out and tips to modify if needed. Thank you Cielo for a wonderful class and I loved the words that you share at the end. I feel so good inside and outside :)

Lovely, lots of poses in this sequence which kept me focused I feel as if I was able to twist a lot out of myself!

A nice light practice!

gab, posted on October 20, 2014

the sequence was nice but at times the narrative ( and poses) seemed to be really rushed. In heros pose there were so many words I couldn't catch any of the cues and felt a little rushed,
thank you for the practice

The language used by Cielo is beautiful, colorful and joyful. Even though the delivery is monotone the words create an expanded inner world for the student! Excellent - I highly recommend.

You have a beautiful gift of words. Thank you for the yoga and meditation!

I love the moves and the flow, and the wording is beautiful. I'm pausing to write this after 25 minutes because the breathing simply doesn't line up. Some moves use long breaths, some I barely have time to inhale or exhale. I'll be returning to it in a few minutes when my frustration subsides because it really is a beautiful practice.

I really enjoyed this mindful practice- it was only a little rushed towards the end, otherwise it was perfect! Thanks & Namaste~

@JReddy Wow! you found me here! Very nice, I had a fabulous time with you all, amazing group. It's a really special exchange when students and teacher meet on that level. I was so impressed by the open hearted community that you all are, this is the first step of our practice so I commend you all for who you all are. I had so much fun and I hope to see you in the hood again. Come practice with me any time!

JReddy, posted on April 17, 2013

Great to meet you last week for birthday yoga, Cielo! Awesome class there and here too, thank you!

@rahulyoga Hi there, I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for posting your comment, I appreciate all the feedback I get, and all types of feedback. It was a fun flow for me so I'm glad that you felt that in your body too. Peace, Cielo

cieloenglish, posted on April 16, 2013

@duchesse Hi, and thanks for posting your comment. I means and allot and I take things to heart and always try to improve on my cuing. I have been working on this, and so it's not a shock that you felt it, it's a sensitivity that you should appreciate in yourself. I hope to make the next ones much more clear. Thanks again for sharing, Cielo

cieloenglish, posted on April 16, 2013

@mrdoughy Thank you so much for's a gift to wake up and find this, that you feel good, that you feel peace. You made my day and I hope the rest of yours was brilliant... Namaste, Cielo

mrdoughy, posted on April 16, 2013

I thought this was incredible! Those final words in the video blew my mind and brought me such peace. Thank you, Cielo!

@MallinaCashew I really appreciate your comments and I take them all to heart...this type of feedback is so useful when making a video as it really is an art, and each time I learn so much from the end result and the practitioners' comments. Much gratitude, Cielo

cieloenglish1, posted on April 1, 2013

@mrenkow Thanks for taking the time to comment! And making the effort to keep trying. It is a faster paced sequence, which can be more challenging to follow as well if you find the poses too advanced.. I'm always working on my cuing. As your practice and self awareness develops you might come back to the practice and find things become more accessible. You can always take less intense variations on a pose until you build a steady foundation and ease. You are your own teacher so it's great that you are listening to yourself! Namaste, Cielo

@jasonjacobson thanks J! I figured it out!

Great class.

duchesse, posted on March 1, 2013

I really like Cielo English, however i found parts of this practice hard to follow....ending up on the same side twice and having to look at my screen more than usual. was OK.

I absolutely love Cielo as a teacher...this was the perfect practice for me this morning....

mrenkow, posted on September 27, 2012

I enjoyed the fast pace. Many of the poses were too advanced for me, but I will keep practicing. Thank you!

NicoleUrdang, posted on August 27, 2012

What a wonderful class!!

MallinaCashew, posted on June 23, 2012

Thanks Cielo, I really enjoyed this sequence. It was a bit fast, but stilling very flowing. Your kind and Loving words are wonderful. Namaste

ShawnaTurner, posted on June 23, 2012

This was great. I love the variation of bridge pose with the strap. Great commentary throught...being and becoming. Great class. Thank you.

Cigana, posted on June 22, 2012

I really tried! Just way too fast for me. I couldn't finish it. Thanks anyways.

"Slow down, you move to fast... you got to make the moment last! Life i love you always groovy!"

arubop, posted on June 22, 2012

This flow was ok but I found the "pace" incosistent. I felt really "rushed" in certain places. Not sure if it was because the instructor speaks too much, too fast or because of the flow itself. By the time you finish following all her instructions and get in the pose, its already time to get out of them.
I wish the poses were held a little longer.

peipei, posted on June 21, 2012

chighet, I agree with you. it is a wonderful flow, but rather challenging for moderate level.

chighet, posted on June 21, 2012

It's very beautiful, but I'm not sure I'd rate the difficulty as Moderate. Thank you!

janineeagon, posted on June 21, 2012

Thank you for such a beautiful practice.

gorbki, posted on June 21, 2012

Thank you for this beautiful practice. It was the perfect way to start my day. I liked the pace that calmly presented peak poses like headstand, side crow, and pigeon.
