Yoga With Adriene
BEGINNER'S MIND! SUCH A POWERFUL TOOL! This week, find other moments in which you can integrate this practice. Sitting down for breakfast, driving in traffic, putting your babe to bed, greeting a friend or partner. This week, what is one place you will implement this practice?

Hi Adriene. I’m 22 years old and started practicing yoga through your channel 5 months ago. I was suffering from exhaustion, low self esteem and eating disorders. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart - working out has always been a very destructive and manic thing for me, but your videos made me fall 100% in love with yoga- I love to roll out the mat and feel strong and happy from the practice! Your yoga made me recover from exhaustion, love my body, eat what I love,and most of all start to actually love myself. I practice yoga every morning and almost every evening with your videos, and you have completely changed my life forever. I introduced your channel to my mom as well, who I believe have suffered from similar things as myself, and she is also loving the impact you have made on her life. Thank you for being such an inspiration and for saving lives. I wish you all the best in the future and pray that you will never stop posting free yoga! Love, Emma xx

I first heard of beginner's mind when I found meditation last year. Meditation coincided with two counseling sessions I went to because I just felt off with more anxiety and sadness than I ever care to have to deal with again. That's when the therapist recommended your yoga. I think this is so important and recently listened to a podcast that discussed the idea that we all want to be masters of knowledge/various crafts/life etc. without first being the apprentice. We have all of these expectations of instant gratification and reward when we haven't taken the time to learn something (sometimes by failing at it numerous times first), and I think we need to be willing to apply beginner's mind all through out life so we can keep learning and earn new skills, and eventually perhaps become masters of whatever it is we choose. I think the negativity associated with judging others would also improve if we all have this beginners mind. Wow, getting all philosophical and mushy here. Feeling great! Namaste world! :)

This was my first time ever doing yoga, and it was the most amazing thing I've done in the longest time. Thank you!!!!
Gill Smith
After 2 years of my daily YWA, I really enjoyed this ‘back to beginnings’. I do this every day and follow every little detail in your voice to get maximum benefit .... wonderful. At Halfway Lift I always remember your tea cup on the back of the neck ! It works every time 😂👍🏻. This 20 mins was perfect for my sunny Sunday morning here in England, thanks Adriene 🧘🏼‍♀️🙏💞
Nurull Aulia
Hi Adriene! Just wanna say thank you because of your videos, I've been practising yoga for solid 3 years. I thank you for being an awesome teacher ❤. Namaste!

Hi Adriene, I just wanted to say i really enjoyed your video, I've been wanting to try yoga for some time now, and just got around to it! Working out has always been very daunting to me, and just a pain. I'm only 22, have horrible anxiety and have a lot of trouble with mindfullness, this was only my first time following along with your video but I enjoyed it a lot! I was scared to try yoga because I am not very fit, thus not able to do all the positions correctly. I tried very hard and made it through to the end, even if it was a bit sloppy. You are very warm and inviting and make yoga a lot less stressful. I will definitely do this again! Now im just rambling! Anyways, lovely video!
Caris Allen
This was AMAZING! I am so grateful for this practice. I think we as humans (or at least me) in today's society feel so pressured to prove that we know so much, have all the answers or are an expert at something. We rarely even allow ourselves the initial time to just not know anything without feeling inferior, and we have to have it all together just to be good enough. But as I'm learning, the truth is no one has it all together, no one knows everything. Not parents, teachers, CEOs, spiritual leaders. We're all so beautifully human, just figuring it out as we go. Nothing we know is absolute, and what we do know is so minute in the grand scheme of things. But I struggled a lot with that in the beginning of my yoga practice and in my life. I've been practicing with Adriene for almost 2 years off and on now and I still so often feel like a beginner and it truly used to bother me. I felt like I was doing something wrong or not growing fast enough. Now I'm beginning to see the beauty in beginning. :) Yoga isn't about being all extra bendy or knowing every pose and Sanskrit name by heart. It's just about you, and being there, present, with your mind, soul and body as one. I don't want to pretend to have all the answers, I am now very content with the idea of being a student of life. And I can't wait to take this practice into my daily life, every single day. Thank you so much Adriene for the light that you bring and thank you to all of you for practicing with me! I am in immense gratitude that this is a practice where knowing everything is never ever required. Namaste.
Elisabeth Müller
I am still a beginner, so this aspect of going back to the first time wasn't too hard. I enjoyed the slower pace bc it enabled me to be aware of the smallest movements and their effects on me. I noticed that I feel like doing more grounding practices. It has been a while and feels so good. Today, I practiced yoga for the first time in the presence of my dog. He seemed confused. 😃 And gave me a big kiss. I laughed so hard. He laid down on the mat but left some room for me. 😃😃😃Laughter and yoga go well together! As lovely funny Adriene knows very well. Thank you! 😘
Jennifer Hawes
I have depression and anxiety and I also work third shift so I am very low energy most of the time. I sometimes don’t feel like to doing anything much less work out and your videos help me do something to get my body moving. I feel aware and energetic after doing yoga with you and my mood levels out significantly. I’ve watched other yoga videos on YouTube and yours leave me feeling much calmer and more in tune with myself. Thank you so much for helping me feel more human on days I feel like a zombie!
The Daily Stress
Today is my second day of yoga and I’m loving it. Thank you so much for your help
Khaira Waite
Ive been following YWA for years now, and I think I fell in love with your modesty and open mind to finding what feels good instead of slamming into poses. I love this video for taking us back to that again. Its perfect timing to refresh the mind into a beginner viewpoint for me because I just got registered for my yoga teaching certificate which I will start in August, and I was just discussing how I will need to keep my mind open to a new way of seeing yoga as a teacher instead of a student. So very excited. Thank you, as always, for this amazing journey you have taken me on. Without the 30 days of yoga challenge that I tried 3 years ago I dont know if I ever would have stuck with yoga the way I do now. So thank you Adriene for helping me find what feels good on a daily basis. ♡ Namaste 🕉
Vijeta Umarjeet
Hi Adriene, I have minor scoliosis in upper back and had a patella surgery in 2011. I always sceptical and confused how to choose the kind of yoga forms for my condition. I have trapezitis and pain is only worsening. Plz guide with some exercises I may begin with to strengthen my core without causing stress on knees. Thanks for your amazing videos! Kindly help !
Alma
Adrien! A year back, yoga was my life blood. I literally couldn't function without 1 h of your videos a day. But then I went through a pretty nasty break up and in October I quit doing yoga. Now I feel like it's time to bring such an amazing force and practice back in my life. Since October I've grown so so much as a person, but I've always wanted to return to yoga. When I sat down today, the first time in months, I cried. From today on, I'm going to relearn what I have lost. Even though I have a lot of flexibility left, my strength is practically gone. There is so much in both body and mind I have to learn over and yet so much is just coming back naturally. Ever since I started doing yoga I've wanted to be an instructor. When getting of the matt last year, I though that wasn't going to happen any more. But I now I have a new faith in myself, and it feels amazing. Thank you for everything you've unknowingly done for me.
A Noble Focus
My first yoga practice in a long time. I’ve been struggling to get out of bed lately with my depression and anxiety but I am working towards pushing out of it and this morning was a good morning. Thanks Adriene 🙏🌞💛
mysticrei
Best feeling I have had with yoga yet! Beginner's Mind is amazing, would love a 40-60 min version. Keep up the wonderful work Adriene.
Beverly Anello
I’ll keep working on it! Adapt, adapt! ...altered positions needed for this episode.
Megan Van Zyl
I a currently travelling through South America and find it is so difficult to incorporate yoga when you rarely have a quiet moment or your own space. Today I had some peace and it was lovely to tune in and go back to the basics! Thank you as always for uploading a wonderful session! <3
snikers4eto
the past few weeks ive been going through a major depressive episode and this video really helped get me back on track. thanks you much
mamasatria
I did this after a week off any exercise due to a bad cold. This was just the right length and intensity for getting back into the groove. Thanks Adriene.
paige mallory
depression had me waaaaay out of practice. this was a perfect reintroduction💙
Debbie Searcy
After 3 years, I’m returning to my mat today. You’re video was just what I was looking for. Such great timing. Thank you!
Amanda Jane Ardern
Hi Adriene I started your yoga practice at the start of this year after ending a bad relationship which had become toxic, I needed to find me again and show my beautiful daughters I was strong enough, and I love all your challenges and the 30 day challenges helped some much. I am new to yoga in my mid 40s but I can safely say I feel amazing, full of strength, I can not miss a day of yoga, it’s at times made me laugh, and some days cry, emotions and feelings through an exercise is something I’d not felt before. Thank you for your excellent teaching your funny banter, and helping me see that new goals and challenges are obtainable again. 💪🏻😊
Chrissy Cerminara
I'm 52 years old and am only 5 months into this whole yoga everyday practice, so I'm still a beginner. I still have lots of, "huh?" happening but then I'm starting to understand how to make this my own and that feels pretty amazing 💜🌿
Annie Fish
I just remember that from one of my first yoga practices with you I realised I had a freckle on one of my toes. was just amazed that I'd never realised this little guy, but hey ho.this was definitely needed! it feels good to explore with the heart leading the way <3
van torres
I could easily do it as a beginner because I stopped practice for 3 mo the I broke my ankle and I’m gently getting back so it 100% felt Like a beginners for me. Thankyou and May I be able to continue and get even further than where I was before my injurie. Namaste🙏❤️
hannah pogue
Ah well, it has been a few months since my last practice and I have been scared to roll out my mat, thinking that I did not want to face my body, that I had let it down. Tonight I couldn't ignore it's pleas for practice, so I chose this video hoping it would be easy on my rusty limbs... it was and so much more. I found myself in tears just 2 mins in. I've missed it so much and my body was beyond forgiving. Thank you Adriene for not only the video but your beautiful commentary. Somehow you just know exactly what I need to hear, Namaste!
Andreea-Daniela Ene
Absolutely love it! Thanks a lot! 🙏
Sarah L
Perfect timing, enjoy Mexico! Thank you for all you do!
Jan Havlas
Hey Adrienne, this is a great video after some time where I focused more on building my first own home practice without instruction. Good way to remember the roots! Thank you. :)
Ashley Soto
Brought me back to the roots and allowed me to feel that brand new exploration all over again. Thank you Adriene for always reminding us where we come from, how we began, how to have that wander in our hearts and on the mat. Namaste!
This and That with Denise Jordan
I’ve been away from the practice for about three months so this beginner mind set was good. What I liked best that you’ve done is the 30nDay series with True. That was my introduction and I loved it. Next favorite is Peaceful Warrior. I’m a beginner so these practices helped me get started. BTW, you’re the only yogi 🧘‍♀️ I follow! I love what you do for people just learning like me.
Beth J
I woke up grumpy despite the beautiful sun in the UK. I got on my mat, listened carefully and now I feel light and appreciative of this practice and the way it's changed my mood. I will enjoy this day now. Thank you sweet Adriene xx
Malbolgia's Spawn
Good morning from East Coast U.S. of A. Thank you for your patience and your inner peace transcends to help me find my own. You are a great instructor and I'm so happy I found you.
Zara Wilkins
Just did this in the airport after no sleep and feel so much better thankyou xx
Eleanor Stone
We all need to start again from the beginning in so many ways. Thanks Adriene once again!
Gina Alves
Yoga for beginners was perfect! I am actually a beginner yogi and it was such a peaceful way to start my day! Thank you!
eda alanson
suddenly of of depression loup, thank you adrianne
Kiara Barnes
This was a great refresher! I'd love to see a summer edition 30 day yoga plan! It would be so nice to follow you with a summer 30 day plan to refresh and get excited for a new page this summer! <3
Eri Sal
Thank you, Adriene.
Ana Montoya
That first plank was soooo awesomeee. I have never felt sooo strong and powerful but at incredible ease at the same time in that particular pose. Beginner's mind is the most amazing experience. I am a high school teacher and I am a couple of days away from summer break and this made me realize that, even at this point of the semester I can still have the capability to be surprised and amazed by the subtle treasures hiding in the routine. I am sooo excited to try this mind set these last few days that I get with my students. Thank you Adriene, awesome as usual!!! Oooh and btw, welcome to Mexico. I hope that my fellas down there in the City are making your visit a wonderful experience. Te quiero mucho, Adriene!! Abrazos!!
Maggie
I love you Adriene.. Your practise is is helping me through some of the hardest months of my life.. I will be ok, everything will be ok and your videos will always have a special place in my heart.
Nermeen Farid
Watching you here from Egypt😍I'm a beginner and I loved the video and you made me fall in love with yoga, It's so relaxing.Namaste ❤️❤️❤️
Lisa Marie
Thank You for sharing!! I’m a new subscriber and new to yoga, very inspiring 😉😊. I feel wonderful afterwards...

Woke up 20 min ago. Now I'm awake! (Thanks :)
Amanda Vickery
I'm so thankful you posted this! I am a newbie yogi, only a couple of months under my belt! But I've learned so much and feel so empowered when I practice with you. I do your "Flexibility" video each practice bc I'm not where I need to be yet to conquer all of the poses. I'm still learning so much and it brings me joy to know that you still continue to learn and enjoy coming back to the foundation of where this beautiful journey begins. I can't thank you enough for your videos, words of wisdom and encouragement, and fantastic way you teach! Beyond thankful that I found you on YouTube or I might not have stuck with this. My body feels free and light, healthy and happy, as well as my mind. You are a wonder woman Adriene! ✌💛
Tiffany Smith
This was a great way to start my week off being mindful and aware. Thank you so much for this practice. :)
Martina Kancheva
So funny. I am not a complete beginner but I decided to try every single video on the channel, so it was this one today. As I was doing it, it started snowing...and guess what - it is the VERY FIRST snow of the year in my hometown where I came to visit for a NEW BEGINNING anyway. The universe is talking, we just need to listen. Adriene, huge thanks to you because I was trying to fall in love in yoga for years but never actually felt it with my heart until I found you, for which I am very grateful. Thank you for what you are doing and for spreading the love. Namaste!
Delta Andrada
Hi Adriene! So I just finished this session, as it was my first time. Now, to be honest, at first it was really hard, because I have some problems with my wrists and i was afraid to hurt myself even more. I practically searched for "yoga for beginners" and your video was the first to pop up. During the actual session though i wasn't thinking about anything at all and let me tell you now that I have finished I'm feeling really relaxed. You are very calming and I like how you took the fact that some people don't even know what they're doing into consideration and you talked through your positions. I am so happy that I found you and I will try to continue with yoga. Thank you a lot!!
seek inwards
Always in tune Adriene! Started a new job yesterday. I "used to be" the type of person who tries to skip the vulnerability of beginners. This practice helped me to remember that as my yoga practice advanced I learned the importance of "backing off" and "subtleties" as a form of self love and deep listening. Now to translate that off the mat in to our new beginnings! Thank you Adriene for leading the way! Thank you community, for doing your best each day! Much love
CIRCUS PICNIC
LOVE IT! Thank you for all you do for the Yoga community Adriene!
Connor
Yet another amazing sequence! Helped me to change my perspective into something curious and gentle while practicing. I'd like to learn how to do some more advanced yoga poses but I know these things take time! My feet are almost touching my mat during downward dog and I'm so excited about it. Thank you for sharing your craft with us! This was perfect to do before bed.
Christina Vani
Holy moly, that was a powerful practice! I try to cultivate beginner's mind in my meditation practice, but my body was much more in tune with the concept than my intellectual mind was; it just knew how to be new. It was profound. I know I'll come back to this video often, and I'll try to slow down and look in the rest of my physical practice going forward--and I'm sure it'll inform my formal sitting practice now, too. Thank you, Yogini Adriene! Namaste.
Kira Harvey
Hey Adriene! I found this practice at a time that was very important to me. It is always important to remember that we are all always beginners at something and that true mindfulness is not only keeping up a practice but also staying humble. Realizing that we can gain something new even from poses we've done many times if we open ourselves up to it is a powerful lesson! Thank you so much for what you do and for creating a space where we can get in tune with and love ourselves so that we can love others. :)
Julia Leonetti
My journey with this yoga practice, I will be honest, began with a little bit of fear, but that is what pushed me to the mat. I am so grateful for that small fear and when I reflect on the beginners mindset I choose to focus in how far I have come. I see how far I have come not from the feeling I get with yoga (it changes all the time) but the way I flow with ease, guessing what is next in sequence while in flow. It is amazing, and I am so proud of myself. The fear can continuously be worked on in my life, so I am trying to focus on the good, Thank you Adriene, <3 Namaste <3
Jenny Rice
This practice was amazing. As a person who's been doing yoga for a while, I challenged myself to keep my eyes closed as much as possible during this practice to reconnect me with the sensations I felt in the beginning. It was so rewarding and helpful. I am absolutely loving the playlist Creativity. Thank you so much Adriene. <3
Araceli Orieta
I stopped practicing this year, my mind took me to that place where my mind makes me believe I'm not good enough, or don't deserve the time. But I'm making it my new year's resolution to begin again, so this practice was just perfect. One of those where I say that final namaste with a smile on my face. Thank you 🙏
Joanna Jones
I always smile when you remind us to - yoga hypnosis?! 🤨
Emily Palmer
I was doing Yoga with Adriene for about two years, off and on, but generally 3-4 times a week. I then broke my leg/ankle exactly a year ago today while playing soccer. I was in a cast for almost two months, an air boot for about the same, and I was depressed/feeling stuck. My mobility is almost back to normal, but my range of motion, confidence, and mindset is not. I woke up today feeling motivated to move, something I haven't felt this past year. This yoga session hurt in places I forgot existed, but hurt in a good way. It reminded me my body NEEDS to move, it needs to breathe, it needs love, and I can start up yoga anywhere - that a beginners mindset isn't a bad thing, but a point of growth. I truly am so grateful that, not only are these free to view, but they are SO powerful and empowering. Thank you so much Adriene. I look forward to catching up on all the yoga videos I've missed this past year! <3
starrystarrynight52
I just want to say, what a difference doing yoga everyday has made. I had a lot anxiety, and these videos everyday has made such a huge difference. If I am upset at all, I know I can just jump on the mat and all my stress disappears within minutes. My family has even noticed a difference. When I go to a doctor, and they look at my record and they ask about my anxiety, I love to tell them how much yoga has calmed me, and now I can handle things. It's great. :)
Bri
Before I started YWA a little over 2 years ago (wow, how time flies!) I was 65+ pounds heavier, insecure, depressed, and definitely not able to do a full yoga practice all the way through without getting frustrated, giving up, and thinking I was never going to be able to have the energy or passion to get out of that rut.. Thank you again for all your wonderful content, and especially this video, which reminds me of how far I've come and how grateful I am to have found someone to motivate me to start a daily practice. Keep doing what you're doing! Namaste!
Brittany Damron
Hello fellow yogis (about 2000 of you who just watched this with me)!!! Namaste! This was a great reminder for me to use the beginner in me to view not only my daily practice, but just life in general. Side note, parrots may be cute, but when a bunch are squawking while trying to do yoga, not as cute. HAHAHA.
Samantha
I really enjoyed this practice. I always watch your flows and in this practice I truly felt I was able to just let go, move freely and it helped me enjoy myself flowing through these poses. I find myself having a tough time when practicing maybe because im not sure if im on the mat for the mindfulness or the stretches, but here I was able to just flow like it was my first time and just be here with myself. I think I needed that. Thank you for sharing <3
Melissa Elliston-Boyes
Hi Adriene! Thank you so much for all the time and effort that you've put into these videos. You are truly wonderful, and we appreciate you so much! This is the first time I've commented on one of your videos because this one has felt really special to me. I learned to try to think as if I were a baby moving my body for the first time, and without expecting it, it gave me a lesson on meditation and mindfulness; to look at everything with the curiosity of someone who has never experienced that moment before. I feel that this is an idea that is going to help me a lot in the future, with my goals of contentment and appreciation of the world. It also taught me that if I view my body as something new, it can always surprise me! I found myself moving through the press-up type movements and stepping through with much more strength and ease than I'd felt before, all because I allowed my body to show me what it could do without preconceptions of its strength. Thank you so much! You've really helped me so much in the last few months, with back and head pain, with mindfulness, calm, strength, flexibility, health.You're really doing a wonderful thing here.
Leah Binkley
I loved this practice!! I cleaned out my trunk this morning, where I have been hoarding and stuffing things for over a year and found my first pair of nice yoga leggings. I decided to take them out of the give-away pile and put them on. It was funny doing this practice in those leggings. I couldn’t help but smile and remember when I first got into the practice. I felt so excited to finally feel like I found something that felt like “me”. Thanks for this lovely practice as always! ❤️
Kathy Lopez
I really loved this, it helped me to really pay attention to what my body is saying rather than focus on doing the moves right, as the perfectionist in me always tries to do. Very humbling practice and I like how it ended standing up, makes it good to practice in the morning! Thank you adriene for sharing your lovely energy and time with us ♡
Cara Berry
Has anyone got any tips for being able to move the leg from the back to front (downward facing dog to lunge or similar) in 1 movement. I just can’t seem to ever do this
Mikaela Heidrich
As a newish yogi, this practice was nice to go through all the basics slowly and work on those shapes
Krissy Mc
Thank you so much for this video, first time i have ever done proper yoga or really wanted to get into it. And make it a daily thing i do, so i started with this video just to help me with alot of things like anxiety and just generally doing something so my body starts becoming fitter again. I also watched your lower back pain video that helped alot with my back. And just doing this regularly ive generally enjoyed life to the fullest because i am relax and feel better because of doing yoga daily thank you adriene 😁
Kate Magargal
Couldn’t stop thinking about Madonna the whole time (“for the very first time!). Haha. Loved this... made me reflect on how focused on ‘doing it right’ I was as a beginner. Being a beginner again allows me to explore all the things I missed that first time around.
Janey Bakarbessy
Thank you Adriene, this was what I need for this week and I am gonna use this the whole week as I have a important meeting on Friday. This was very helpful to go back where I need to be. Fingers Crossed and again thank you!
Sara VELIMIROVIC
Thank you, Adriene! Very good timing for us here in Europe :) Have a lovely Sunday, y'all!
Manny guitar
Keep learning 😇😇😇
Linda Vilela
thank you for this video Adriene, i love your calm, funny and peaceful vibe. just starting my yoga journey :)
gypsy rose
I don't think I've ever moved so mindfully! Taking this feeling of a fresh start to bed with me, curious how it will effect my week :) Sending you much love to Mexico all the way from Switzerland, I hope you find what feels good! Besos y abrazos
bowtiecat11
Hi Adriene! Can you please make another "Yoga for Seniors" video? :) I want to get my grandparents to try yoga, but they are in their 80s and think they are too old to try new things, especially physically. One also has back problems and the other is very inflexible (and stubborn). I think they would really benefit from your videos! Thank you! And lovely video as always<3
Katarzyna Wanda Jeziorska
When we did first warrior pose I just giggled, this pose makes me so happy somehow. :D Thank you Adrienne for your work. You rock <3
Marissa Angulo
OMG I needed this so much more than I knew. My yoga journey has had multiple chapters... where I have started, stopped, started, gotten extremely dedicated .. then I got injured and was forced to stop for a long time. The set back was very upsetting. I have slowly started adding it back in with some modifications... and this was prefect for today. Thank you Adriene and team for all you have done for so many, including myself by making yoga accessible, non intimidating, and choices to get exactly what you need for that day or that moment. I have recommended your channel to countless people. Thank you <3
Elma H
Thank-you for this practice, Adriene! It came in much needed as I've begun a new lifestyle starting to exercise first thing after coffee. I did this after some short cardio and loved the feeling it left me with. It's so nice to cultivate that positive energy, maybe it's from being in a 'beginners' mindset but I feel like I have so much to learn about things I'm interested in and just want to share the good vibes! <3
Roberte Jean
Perfect! Love this #Iamastudent forever ... thanks Adriene & Benji 💝🤗and this fabulous community 💋 I feel you #goodvibes 🙏🙏🏻🙏🏽
Justine Warnick
One thing I don’t miss about the beginners mindset is the struggle to stay present without being distracted. It was nice to return to something so simple and be able to be right there the entire time. I started practicing with you many years ago but have been returning daily since the first of the year. I cannot thank you enough for what you have encouraged me to achieve mentally and physically. My girlfriend often jokes that Adriene is my best friend because we meet every morning for a few sips of coffee and yoga, and I take her with me everywhere in my mindset. Thank you , thank you, and I’m so happy to be a part of this community ❤️
ALizza Bliss
The message from this practice has been haunting me all week lol It's definitely opened my mind and my eyes to how much I've been closed off and stuck in my ways of doing things. The movement of this practice is beautiful but it was the message that ended up being a game-changer for me. I've said it before and I'll say it again: yoga is so much more than stretching/exercise. Thank you, Adriene ❤️
David Engquist
Always helpful to look at yoga from a fresh perspective. Thanks, Adriene!
Eve Wave
Thanks for this beautiful yoga, thanks for the little smile on my face afterwards! Now one more meditation and I'm prepared for my sweet dreams <3
Cristina Ionita
Amazing practice, just what I need. Thank you Adriene, you are so beautiful inside out. Much love and light!
Magowls08
This is now one of my favorites!
Richard Conroy
Adriene 🙏🏻 you always have a practice that “I need”. I do have difficulty with getting used to new things and pushing myself to try new scary things. As usual - I needed this practice and I found it among others today xxx
3veronik
muchas gracias!!! me encanta tus videos toda mi famila hacemos yoga contigo. Espero que pronto hagas un video en español para que puedan practicar yoga mis papas. buenas vibras Adriene.
Lara List
Hi Adriene! Thank you for these amazing way of life that inspire us so much. I would really appreciate if you could make another video for neck and shoulders pain. The first u made was great, and extra ways are always welcome. Thank you! Namaste
Angelina f
Today's practice was exactly what I needed I'll remember this phrase " In the beginner's minds there are many possibilities. In the expert's mind there are few". Beginnings are most of the time very overwhelming and scary for me but you reminded me how fun and free It also is. Today I'm about to do something I've never done before and I'm scared.. But now i'm also very excited and I'll try to have my mind as open as possible :) Thank you so much, I love you <3 Namaste
Julia Leonetti
This week I set the intention in being at peace with what "ends" or in my case, takes a momentary break. I am coming to the end of my first year of teachers college and since I love it so much and had a great time, I cannot imagine not going to class, seeing my friends, seeing my boyfriend too(!) a few times a week. Where I want to find peace is within myself, to feel peaceful that this break is suppose to happen, that it is necessary for us teacher candidates to reboot and recharge. I accept it. I accept it, and flow with it. Last summer was a tough summer for me, it is when my anxiety started so I have been reflecting a lot on that recently, seeing how much has changed. I am so happy for it all though, I have told myself that, because it led me to this practice, being more mindful, loving more, being kind more often and loving myself. I am so thankful for my panic (crazy right?) because it gave me a lot of new and amazing things. < This has officially been the longest comment ever! Thank you for this safe space to put my thoughts <3 Namaste <3

Hey Adriene, I’ve been following you for a long while (more than two years) because my sister recommended your videos to me. Tbh I’ve never practiced yoga while watching your videos, I just watched them when I was sad and needed to relax. Today I (finally) got myself a yoga mat and the first thing I thought was doing some yoga while watching one of your videos! This one really called my attention and it suited perfectly, I’m all about new beginnings, changes and new things in my life. I’ve been depressed (anxiety attacks included), tired and sad with my body, but today when I finished practicing with this video, I felt SO HAPPY AND FULFILLED ✨ I want to thank you for doing this, you do more than what you imagine. Hugs from Mexico 💞🧘🏻‍♀️

Perfect timing... I had fallen off the wagon with my practice and this was exactly what I needed. Your email was wonderful today... thanks for being such a great teacher.

This was an interesting one... I always try to be mindful during my practices but there were still some moments today where I went "Oh! There it is!" Like when you say to pull your hip crease back... I felt it today! During halfway lift, I always remember this sweet moment during your Roadshow where one of the yoga teachers came over and gently relaxed my back - I was straining in my effort to have a perfectly straight line. A great lesson for all things as it is much easier to "catch a wave" and float into place! Every time I think of that, I feel like a beginner again. Thank you Adriene <3
