Yoga For Connection | Yoga With Adriene

Hey everyone.
Welcome to Yoga With Adriene, I’m Adriene and this is Benji and today we have an
awesome yoga for connection. So this is a slow
and low to the ground, breath practice that’s going on
provide you the opportunity to circle back to connecting to
yourself when you’re in need and of course that will help you
in turn connect to others. So hop into something
comfy and let’s get started. (upbeat music) Okay my friends,
let’s begin today lying down. Yes! Come on down to the ground. Allow your head to rest. So if you have a ponytail or if
there’s something going on you want to move it so your head
can come to rest on the ground. Then tuck your chin slightly so you can find length
in the back of the neck. And you’re gonna
bring your hands, bring ’em to your belly. And you’re gonna bring
your feet as wide as the mat. And then you’re gonna
allow the knees to fall in, the outer edges the
feet might come off the mat, and that way you can
rest through the lower body. You can soften through the bowl
the pelvis and then with the hands resting
gently on the belly you can begin to slowly relax through the torso,
through the arms, the elbows, and the shoulders. And then, hopefully by now
you’re getting settled in and when you’re ready,
relaxing through the chest, the heart space. Relaxing through the neck and the head and finally, if you’re not there yet,
through the face, closing your eyelids,
trusting me. Thank you for being here,
for showing up. Trusting yourself. Thank yourself for being here,
for showing up. And now, with the eyes closed and the body
positioned for relaxation. So we’re not going to
assume that it’s a switch, right, that you
can flip on and off. ‘Cause we know that
that’s not the case. So, setting the body
up for a release, for a softening. Eyes closed allowing the sound
of my voice to guide you here. Nothing to do and nowhere to go. Trust that this
time is valuable. And then as you’re ready and I’m
willing to bet that most people out there have
already begun to do this through their natural
instincts and intuition, start to gently
deepen the breath. So your body will tell
you what you need here. It might be a big inhalation
and a big exhale. It might be at last a long overdue sigh or it could be that we’re a little bit,
for whatever reason, removed from that depth of
breath and we just ease into it. Just nice and easy starting
to deepen and extend the breath in
and the breath out. Again, with the eyes closed continue to allow your body the opportunity to relax
and for your foundation, that which is
touching the earth here, to feel supported
and connected to mama earth, the ground. Imagine the earth rising
up to meet your foundation, feeling that support
as you continue to explore your breath. Now as you’re ready, slowly
bring your awareness or your attention to your
hands on the belly, the lower belly, the diaphragm. Depending on what time of day
it is that you’re practicing, if you have had a big meal today
or if you’re just feeling kind of bloated or any’s sort of
palpable energy in the belly you might actually place one
hand on top of the other and start to draw slow and kind clockwise circles. If you’re relishing
in this stillness, your body is actually
loving this moment of pause go ahead and take that. So both are kind,
loving actions that encourage a connection and a reset and you’re just gonna
choose whichever one feels more awesome for you. So the circle or the stillness or if you’re like
me a little bit of both. Now as you begin to bring
awareness to your hands or to your belly,
to the diaphragm, yep, you guessed it,
we’re going to invite a deeper breath in,
more conscious breath. Inhaling in through the nose,
feeling the belly rise. And then pausing at
the top for two beats. You’ll count one, two and then exhale, release
and let go of everything. Belly softens, naval drops
down towards the spine. So, I’ll explain that
a couple more times ’til you catch your rhythm. Hands still are
moving in the circle. Be sure to relax your shoulders,
relax your elbows. Make sure you’re
not clenching in the feet. It’s a big inhale,
here we go, through the nose. Inhale to full capacity and at that top point
you’re gonna retain the breath, full belly, full of air
and you’re gonna count one, two and then slow
and controlled exhale. And that’s your rhythm. Slow and controlled exhale to
release, naval draws down to the earth and then as you’re ready
big inhale to fill the lower belly, the diaphragm expands. We inhale to our highest point, belly full and count one, two and then soften. Slow and controlled exhale,
you’ll feel the warmth of your hands as the belly, naval drops down. Alright, I’ll explain one more
time then you’ll take it away. So we inhale in
deeply through the nose, filling the diaphragm,
that belly, with air. Your hands will rise. Once you get to
the top of your exhale, you’ll lovingly count one beat,
then two beats and then with slow control awareness
we’re gonna exhale but it’s nice and easy.
So it’s not just emptying. A slow descend of the
naval down to the earth. Now, close your eyes if they are
not still closed and play with this little rhythm,
this dance of the breath. Here we go. (light piano music) You’re doing great, just bring your
attention back to the breath. Do one more cycle. Great, and then however
that went just nod to that. Say thank you to
yourself for practicing a little breath control. You’re gonna allow
the knees to come apart. Now, we’re gonna walk the
soles of the feet together, allow the knees
to fall out wide. And now you’re gonna
bring the hands to the rib cage. So we’re just bringing ’em from
the belly up to the rib cage and then up to the,
no, just kidding. So hands are gonna
come on to the belly. You’re gonna start to
experience a nice opening, yes, through the hips. Ah, I’m sore so I’m feeling,
feeling it today. Alright, check in
with the neck again. Just make sure it’s nice
and long and then here we go, back to the
rhythm of our breath. Inhale, send that
directional breath down, down, down to the
base of the spine. Feel the belly, expand. This time use the warmth of your
hands on your rib cage to feel that expansion or to try. And then exhale you can even use
a gentle push of the hands to feel that rib cage,
particularly the lower ribs, get real heavy. Inhale, feel the expansion. Exhale, a soft easy contraction. Keep it going. Course nice opening
through the hips continues, breathing deep. Now keep the rhythm of breath
going as you have it here or, once again, add the
breath retention at the top. You’ll count two beats
and then slow controlled exhale as you breathe out. Close your eyes if you feel
brave just to help bring that attention and that
awareness inward. We’ll do one more here. Just start to notice
how the quality of your energy is changing. Maybe your nervous system’s
having a response to your slow and controlled breath patterns. Just pay attention. And then gently
bat the eyelashes open. You’re gonna take
your fingertips to the outer edges of your legs. Just allow them to help
guide the knees back together. Press up off the balls to your
feet and your toes and you’re gonna hug the
knees into the chest. Interlace the fingertips,
squeeze knees up towards the chest or heart. Scoop the tailbone
up towards the sky. And if it feels good,
if it feels right, you might rock
gently side to side. Small movement, big movement,
find what feels good. Continue to breathe nice
full conscious breaths here. So the practice today really reminding
us if you get one thing out of this video, just a
reminder that whenever you feel disconnected from yourself or if you feel
that impossibility of connecting to others like
nobody’s noticing you or the whole world is against you these
inevitable thoughts and feelings that will come into our journey. If anything remember that you
have the power to close your eyes, maybe get on
the ground if you can, but you don’t always have to,
but to return to your breath for that connection
that you’re seeking. So we often kind of look for
all these quick fixes but really breath practice above
all practices is just a great reminder that we have the
power to connect to find that connection right here,
right within. Via the breath. Squeeze the
knees into your chest. Relax the shoulders
down to the earth. Again, imagine your yoga mat or
the earth rising up to meet your back body, nice
and supported here. Bring some energy into the feet by flexing the soles of the feet. Maybe spreading the toes,
those yogi toes. Alright, now with
your breath, big inhale. Feel the belly,
the ribs expand and then exhale.
Naval pulls in. Again, big inhale. Feel the breath travel down. And exhale, naval draws in and
maybe the knees are out here and you can just imagine your hands
on your belly or your rib cage. You don’t necessarily have to
feel the tops your legs on your belly so just work with your
beautiful body here today and train your mind to
keep circling back to that connection with your breath. Alright, now all together,
here we go another big inhale in through the nose. Now this time naval draws in, we
scoop the tailbone up and as you exhale, we’re gonna peel,
head, neck and shoulders up. You can grab the outer
edges of the feet if you like or stay here and yes, you guessed it, breathe. This is your test. Sometimes it’s not a
big pretzel-y position. Feel the length between each
vertebra as you squeeze the tailbone up and
draw the naval down. Then open up through your chest. Find a softness in the face. And this is where we breathe
full loving breaths and try to find a sense of grace
within this contraction, within this tight position. How do you find a sense
of ease when you’re put in a tight position? Can you remember to stay connected to your breath? Yourself? Your spirit? Relax through the throat. Take one more
cycle of breath here, close your eyes. Taste a bit of vulnerability as
you squeeze and lift and try to maintain that
fullness of breath. Nice and then on an
exhale release everything. Bring the feet to the ground,
you’re gonna turn to one side any side and you’re gonna
slowly press all the way up. Nice work, best you can
let’s keep this party going by breathing nice
full deep breaths. Keep breathing as you transition
all the way to all fours. When you get there,
find your Tabletop Position. Press away from the earth. Feel that connection. Nice fullness of breath,
breathing into the belly. And then release the floodgates,
connect breath and body with the simple Cat-Cow so
you’re gonna drop the belly. Tailbone goes up, we open the
chest inhale to look forward. And then come on
now rinse it out. Cleansing breath as you
exhale, round through the spine. Chin to chest. Now close your eyes as you
continue this movement inhaling to drop the belly
and open the heart and exhale the press
in your foundation. Round through, chin to chest. Keep it going. On your next inhale, come to a
nice neutral spine and we’re gonna slowly
extend the right leg out, find the stretch of the full
leg and then nice and easy just step it all the way
into a nice low lounge. Front knee over front ankle,
you’re gonna swim the fingertips behind and here’s our big heart
opener as you press into the right heel, press
into the back foot. Slowly lift the heart and chest
and find that fullness of breath here as we
stretch through the pecs, tailbone lengthens down. We squeeze and hug
everything into the midline. Spiraling back to
your center, your core. Full, deep breaths. Lean in, stick with me. Stick with your practice. Connect. Good, gently release. Stick with the sound
of your breath as the hands come back to the earth. And you’re gonna slowly walk the
right foot all the way gently over to the left
side of your mat. Keep the toes active in
both feet and we come into a One-Legged Pigeon here. So inhale, open the chest again. If this stretch is too deep
for you today at this point, well maybe it’s
first thing in the morning, you’re gonna bring
your right heel in. And then we breathe deep here
if you want to find soft easy movement here that feels good
you might consider looking past one shoulder and then the other. Again, keep energy in all toes. Then press
fingertips into the earth, lift the chest. Option here to bring the
palms together at heart center, Namaste, your body will tell
you that’s not for you today. You may need the
support of the ground. Then everyone release
come back to all fours. Listening to the
sound of your breath. All the way through,
through every transition. Then we’ll extend
the left toes out. Find a little stretch here in
the calf, the Achilles. Keep length through
the neck, awareness through all four sides of the torso. And then bring it all
the way up as you’re ready, nice low lunge. Find your foundation here. Feel that connection,
that support. And you’ll interlace
the fingertips behind. Press into the
front foot firmly. So find your foundation and then
press into the back foot firmly. Interlace, draw the
knuckles down and away. And squeeze. Inner thighs
come into the midline. Naval draws in and up. Find that support from within,
open the chest. And breathe. If you have been
distracted up until now, it’s understandable. So use this moment
here in this shape, this posture to
listen to the sound. To really listen to
the sound of your breath. You’ll know if you’re
holding your breath here. Great, take one
more cycle of breath. Then slowly release,
fingertips come to the earth. We’re gonna walk
the left foot over towards the right side of the mat. And slowly come
closer to the earth. If this stretch is
too deep for you here, draw the left heel in,
press into the back foot firmly, lift the chest. Breathe deep.
Send breath down to your guts. That deep listening point.
A wonderful place of connect. Stay here, if it feels right
hands come together at the heart center
for one breath. Inhale deeply, and exhale
to relax the shoulders down. Beautiful, now everyone
bring the palms to the ground. Find your support system,
connect to your core as you come all the way back to all fours. Inhale to drop the belly. Exhale to round
through the spine. Inhale to drop the belly,
close your eyes, listen. Exhale to round
through the spine. Inhale, Tabletop Position. Nice neutral spine, elbows come right
where the hands are. Palms pressed
firmly into the mat. Curl the toes under. Finishing with a
Dolphin Pose today. Just an inversion. You’re gonna press into all
10 fingerprints or all of your fingerprints, excuse me,
and then here you go. From your center,
lift the hips up high. Coming into your
private little love cave. If this is not
great for your shoulders, then give it a
Downward Facing Dog, you can lift up. So we’re in Downward Dog here. I’m definitely coming into my
own private little of cave with this talk today
or we’re in Dolphin and we’re gonna pedal it out. Bringing the head
below the heart space here for your inversion. Draw the shoulders
away from the ears, breathe deep. Connect. Our ability and our willingness
to connect to ourselves, depicts and informs, is our ability and willingness
to connect to others. So like you love yourself, one
more big inhale in and then use your exhale to slowly
bring the knees back down. Bring the knees together,
really together, or take them nice and
wide so listen to your body for Child’s Pose. Now, draw your attention inward one last time here on
the mat in your practice. Slow down your breath. And notice how you feel. Notice the
quality of your breath. Notice the soft
easy ebb and flow, the movement that your breath
creates in your physical body and then last, but not least, crack a little smile.
A little inner smile here. Find a tiny moment of joy for
the sheer fact that aha we do have the tools and everything we
need to feel connection. To feel that connection that sometimes goes missing. Then stay here if you want. One minute, two minute,
three minutes, four minutes,
five minutes, ten minutes or gently press into
your foundation. Tuck the chin,
and we’ll roll it up. Wow. Feel that flush of energy. We’ll draw the hands
together at the heart. Hold onto that connection,
this connection to our self and to one another. Just think about
how many hundreds, maybe thousands of people
who are practicing with you, with me, with us. And the next time
you feel disconnected or alone or
just out of alignment, return to this practice. Thank you so much. Let me know how
it goes down below. Hope you have
a great rest of the day. Namaste. (upbeat music)

  1. It starts with you. Your connection to yourself influences any and all other connections.

    We are kicking the month off today with a 27 min practice that will provide you the opportunity to slow down, circle back and connect to yourself.
    I fell in love with yoga because the practice and philosophy constantly remind me that ultimately – I am the one singular entity responsible for my own happiness.

    Ultimately, I am the one responsible for my peace and my power.

    It starts with the self.

  2. You are a wonderful teacher and human, thank you for your grace. Also, love and peace to all in this community.

  3. My apologies if this is too brash but I have to share…
    The one I love tells me the other night..
    "You've got a GREAT ass!"
    Hahaha.. I really only have you to thank Adriene XD
    I realize this isn't why we do this but the side benefits are tremendous!

  4. My festive holiday has come to an end, as I get focused for the week ahead, this practice was an absolute peach, Thank you. Keep keeping on.

  5. Yeah, 240 pounder first time yoga attempt. You had me until you said right foot to the left hand 😂.

  6. Hi Adriene, thanks a lot for your videos. They really make it possiblle for me to play and sing for people, connect with myself more, stay healthy and feel great. whish you and your chanell many more happy viewers, Peter

  7. I woke up on Sunday morning feeling very anxious and disconnected to my surroundings.

    The breathing practice in this helped me to connect back to myself and put my thoughts aside for 30 minutes.

    Awesome practice!

  8. I feel that many times after each amazing practice with you, but now I can say that this is my intimate favourite! That was amazing to allow time and space for reconnection, slowing down and find peace even when we are under pressure. I loved that bit especially, that was an amazingly beautiful reminder, it grabbed me emotionally as well, I loved the whole sequence, and I felt deep joy when I was looking at you at the and bowed to you, Beautiful Soul! Namaste Adriene, Namaste everyone 🙏

  9. I've practiced this many times. Today it made me feel very vulnerable.

  10. Adriene, this video changed my whole week! Thank you so much for sharing and being your empathic self. “Aha! I do have the tools”. Your videos help so many people! 💕

  11. I really needed that practice today. When i started going thru your videos I was pretty sceptical of the intentions on each of them but today has convinced me that doing yoga with a purpose is very different than workout yoga. Thank you.

  12. I sometimes find the slower paced ones more challenging than the faster, more active ones and yet they are so important. I didn't realise how much I needed this practice today, I loved it. Thank you so much. Have a lovely day all.

  13. Fantastic! Woke up feeling drained but going through this practice felt the cloud lifting and now revived & ready for my day B-) The power of breath and your guidance. woohoo!

  14. Adriene, I have great difficulty getting my head flat on the ground. It feels hyperextended and causes pain. I want my spine to be in alignment but my body shape for some reason won't allow me to stay in that position very long without feeling a lot of pain. Help!

  15. i actually did something i don't think i've ever done in a yoga practice before: actively engage my core while in a lower lunge stretch. i mean, i do fire it up when we open up, but the pause we took at the top really had me trying to concentrate to keep it tight.

    yay me.

  16. That was just what I needed – although unexpected slow and low helped me to reconnect with myself. Been a tough week mentally and a lot of conflict and disappointment at work had begun to take it's toll. This practice has helped me ground down and recharge . Thank you x

  17. This practice helped me get rid of a headache that accompanied me the whole day.. thank you Adriene 💕

  18. This was a powerful practice for me today as I've been struggling with a terrible cough and lung congestion for over three weeks now. Over these 27 minutes I went from coughing uncontrollably to quiet, deep breathing, although it took quite a while! It felt great to connect to my breath (and clear some of the congestion as well).

  19. Day 13 June 2019!!! I really needed this stretch after a long day's work. Thank you!

  20. "low to the ground" was music to my ears, as i'm dealing with those monthly cramps but didn't want to skip my practice today. amazing what breath can do to ease pain, thank you 🙂

  21. I really needed this today as I was feeling distracted and disconnected lately, shed a few tears, namaste adriene

  22. I didn't want to come up from my child pose.. Felt so yummy ❤️

  23. Such a great feeling of lightness and ease! Thank you Adriene xx Namaste 💟💟

  24. This practice for Day 14 of EMBRACE was a good compliment to follow my Yoga For Back Pain which has been doing the trick. So I appreciated the connectivity to mind and body with such deep controlled breathing and the benefits that brings. I admit to missing my abs/core work but looking forward to that. This senior yogi must keep her strength up 😂 see you tomorrow on the mat Adriene 🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏻‍♀️🙏💞

  25. Just loved this I’d forgotten just how restorative breathing is thanks as always Adriene xxb

  26. Good morning to everyone, lovely practice today, that knees to chest and head to knee posture was really yummy for me today, I enjoy it which I faint think I would but I did so thank u Adriene for guidance through that venerable posture, hope everyone has a wonderful, productive day and Namaste Everyone 💕💞💓💖🙏

  27. « Find support from within »

    I fell in love with YWA because we go way beyond physical practices here.

    Thank you, Adriene, for creating a space where we strengthen our mind and we learn a new, rich and gentle way to speak, specially silently, in our mind.

    FWFG is so powerful and softening, I feel immensely grateful that I found you.

    Namaste 😊🙏❤️🌟

  28. Something about practicing with this sequence in the quiet of early morning that allowed me to be at peace and settle into the reality that I really didn't practice this alone. I can not only connect to myself but to the idea that I'm not alone, and that's such a nice reminder, isn't it? Where my other June 2019 people at? 💕

  29. I really needed this today! The slow pace calmed my mind and made me concentrate on my breathing and nothing else. Thank you for a lovely routine ❤️ Namaste 🙏

  30. This was perfect for my birthday today! The best practice to connect to myself. It's truly a great gift. Thank you so much, I'm happy that this yoga practice was the one on the Embrace June calendar for today ❤🙏

  31. A calming experience, this practice felt like meditation 🧘🏾‍♀️ I especially enjoyed the heart opener in the lunge position and pigeon pose.
    Feeling connected to all of my yoga family out there far & wide 🌎☯️☮️🤗
    Namaste 🙏🏾

  32. EMBRACE day 14

    It was lovely, the pigeon pose is pretty cool too.



  33. This practice was an absolute wonderful surprise. Following Embrace this June, and loving every day. This is a beautiful, quiet, calm practice. Perfect for when you have low energy (Fridays are hell at work) and re-centering even when you didn’t realize you were out of alignment.
    Beautiful. Thank you. Namaste 💜

  34. Day 19. Okay this was reaaaally lovely. I felt more present doing yoga today than I have in the previous days. Maybe it's my mindset today or because I'm cultivating my practice and is now getting better at being present. I feel extra wonderful after this session. All that breathing felt wonderful and I'm all giddy with joy.

  35. This breath practice was great I’m into more of the movement practices but after this practice colors seen more brighter and felt more alive

  36. I appreciate how yoga can bring me calm, physically and mentally. I will continue to practice daily, truly love all your videos.
    Thanks Adriene!

  37. My favourite yet! I did it on a study break on a particularly disconnected distracted day and now feel so light and focused. Thank you!

  38. Loved this practice today. I feel so relaxed, happy, content & alive. Yoga has magical qualities and I love it. Thank you Adriene, you have a gift. xxx

  39. What a different practice for me! All about keeping my poise and rhythm while keeping a pose for an extended period. Really helpful for me as a person who is more comfortable doing an ongoing flow. Thanks!

  40. Thank you so much for this video and your whole channel. This is exactly what I needed right now. Namaste <3

  41. Adriene you are really AMAZING !!! You do a WONDERFUL work THANKYOU soooo much!
    I never comment but often share + I do your yoga almost everyday, sometimes twice a day.
    Thank you again and hope to welcome you on our little island MAURITIUS one day!
    Have you ever heard of it other than from me?

  42. Haha, I loved when in low lunge you said, "if you've been distracted up to this point"… I have a new puppy and he was literally climbing on me and trying to nip my toes until that point! 🧘🏼‍♀️

  43. Another beautiful practice. I especially loved/hated the curl up and breathe posture. I felt it in my neck and a lot of emotion release. Thank you!!

  44. Adrienne you are soooo frickin’ cute! I mean the way you got excited to be starting the practice lying down 😍🤗

    So grateful for you 🙂

  45. I wasn't feeling DISconnected. But TOO connected, to life, people, social media…etc. This practice reminded me that I am the one that chooses these connections. I can bring them into focus or let them blur into the background.

  46. Wanted to say that I was happy to hear a little music in this video. I have actually started to play my own music in the background for these videos.

  47. 3rd day of yoga in a row outside on my deck!! I'm trying my hardest to get back into daily practice, my minds been all outa whack and been hella stressed due to my job. I love yoga so much, it always brings me back to where I need to be. And I think this time I'm really going to stick with it and my dreams. And my original mantra from new years: "I am going to do this" Namaste ✌️💖

  48. I absolutely LOVED this slow, gentle practice. Perfect for trying to quietly do my work in a hotel room with 3 sleeping people 😂

  49. Wow. Talk about meant to be! I went to the ER earlier because I had a breakdown and this is the video i chose tonight. Everything you said resonated with me so vibratey in my soul🌌 You truly have helped me make my life so much more bright and alive

  50. so good, definitely “feels good” happy weekend, connection and joy xx

  51. Just got up with a cold not being able to lie down without coughing. During the whole of the video I was being able to breathe quietly without coughing even once. Oh, the magic of Yoga. <3

  52. Beautiful practice on this Saturday morning with a beautiful message. Thanks Adriene! Namasté

  53. For Day 17 of Reunite, I feel this practice takes me into another world. I really hope there were thousands practicing together as you say, there was a deep connection. Now afterwards I’m kind of zenned out, so calm and thoughtful. It was a very disciplined breathing practice which had an amazing effect, some powerful stretches too. I do use deep deep breaths often in my life to see me through. You are an awesome teacher Adriene. We love you so 💞 🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏻‍♀️🙏💞

  54. Day 17 of August. Thank you so much for this, Adriene. I feel connected with my breath and my body.

  55. Beautiful practice on a rainy Saturday. I felt resistance when we were curled in a tight ball cause my back was stiff, it was difficult at first, but when I connected with my breath again I surrendered sending energy down into back which help eased and was able to relax again. Now it is feeling much better and I'm feeling zened out 🙏🏻

  56. My internal world has been a struggle lately, and during this practice I realized how much FEAR I was holding in my gut. But I stuck with it, kept breathing, kept trusting, watched as the fear moved to different areas of my body, and eventually (at least some of it) started to slowly evaporate… These tools are important. Thank you

  57. There was a point where I took a breath in for so long I even surprised myself. And I pride myself on my deep breathing skills.

  58. Distracted yet willing to do something good for the body and mind 😌✨ Thank you so much Adriene for this gentle session, the first part nearly made me fall into sleep 😅 Namaste 🙏🏻💗

  59. I did this practice as part of the August calendar and just wanted to mention that I broke a couple of ribs a few weeks ago, and I have been able to follow along without having to modify much at all. It's almost like it was tailored to me. Especially this practice was perfect.
    Thank you so much for the monthly calendars, they are much appreciated!

  60. This kind of practice used to by my favorite. Not sweating that much, calming and no dizzyness when coming out of a long forward fold. Don't get me wrong, I do still love them! But last 16 days taught me that I should take more challenges, go for it and not be afraid because I am capable of doing * T H I N G S *. Even though I always dramatize with faster and more intense practices, feeling like I'm going to die every time (for sure!) I'm looking forward to them. "Sweat and sore" is close to "sweet and sour" but I'm making it sweeter every day.

  61. Today I felt the community love cause saw the practice everyone did in red rock with Adriene and I was so sad I could not be there practicing with everyone and that odd for me cause I prefer to practice alone but today seeing it, my heart really craved to be with everyone and that was so new for me and wonderful at the same time, so this video helped me to feel that connection more so today so much love to everyone and to you Adriene and benji, Namaste Everyone and goodnight 💕💞💓💗💖💞❤🙏

  62. Just the mellow, slowed down practice I needed today. Loving this August Reunite playlist

  63. Seriously needed this practice today; felt so good to find my breath in this relaxing poses. Much gratitude for all you do Adriene!

  64. A perfect start for my day after yesterdays practice!Slowing down and connecting!Gracias guapa!Enjoy fellow yogies!

  65. Such a great aid for my meditation and the daily practice of my 11th step. Glad I found YWA – only wish I could of found you a little sooner than I did. Peace and Unity x

  66. Been hopping around this month on the calendar. I just finished this one today and it was a really beautiful way to start my day. I really connected with this practice – the title is perfect.

  67. This stuff body needed this so much! Thank you Adriene xx Namaste 💟💟

  68. My ego wanted to push me through some demanding full body workout, but my intuition opted for this – and it was just perfectly what I needed today❤️ the first time my intuition won over my always-for-new-ways-to-tone-thebody-seeking ego. Thank you for enabling this progress through your wise words and lovely videos, Adriene. Fan of your channel since 5 years! Namaste xoxo

  69. The last time I did yoga with you I was really struggling to stay afloat in my life. That was two months ago. During this time I have had a real transition and have grown stronger in every way; spiritually, mentally and with a new set of tools to reset and find stillness and peace and let it all flow.

    This practice today gave me exactly what I needed. I have never connected this deep with yoga before and now I can’t stand up. ☺️

    Thank you my friend, from one soul to another, you are loved. 🙌❤️
