Yoga Morning Fresh  |  Yoga With Adriene

– What’s up, everyone? Good morning and
welcome to Yoga with Adriene. I’m Adriene and this is Benji and we’re wishing
you a very good morning. We have a yoga practice to help you feel fresh
and awesome for your day so hop into something
comfy and let’s get started. (upbeat music) Alright, good
morning my friends. Let’s begin
sitting up nice and tall in a nice cross-legged seat. We’re gonna ease in
and wake up together. Take your time as
you get into place. Find length through the spine. We’re gonna just start
with soft, easy movement with the head and neck as
we connect with the breaths. No need to force
anything or push. Just begin nice and easy
with soft, easy movement, maybe nodding the
head yes and then no. Maybe drawing
circles with the nose. You can close your eyes here
now that you have your task and begin to deepen your breath. One of the awesome things about practicing
yoga in the morning is it’s the
beginning of the day, right? You have an
opportunity to start fresh, to let go of anything
that’s happened before and to begin anew. You don’t have all
the information of the day and the hip
happenings of the day. They haven’t occurred
yet so you get to design, or attempt to design, the way you feel today. Maybe letting go of any
baggage from the previous day. I’m just really
seeing this as an opportunity to start again, begin again. There’s no time
like the present. Bring the head
back over the heart. We’ll bring the hands together. Prayer Position. And if Prayer Position feels
really revenant and awesome really close
your eyes and feel it. Drop your thumbs to your heart. If that’s not your
style then no prob. Press the palms together and start to open up
through the shoulders, elbows left to right, and just create a
little resistance here, a little sensation. The way I like to
approach yoga is very personal, it’s very individual. That’s perfect for our
morning practice, right, where you’re really
taking this time for yourself whether you’re
practicing alone or with someone. Wherever you
are in mind and body just take a second to set an intention. It can just
simply be to wake up. Take a deep breath in. And exhale to release
the hands to the legs. Open your eyes. Smile just a little. We’re gonna bring the legs
one foot in front of the other so let’s start
with the left heel in and the right foot in front. If it’s beginning to
be a little bit tricky to sit up tall here, you can
lift your bum up on a blanket or a block or a rolled up towel, even a couch cushion’s awesome. Then here we go, a
nice good morning stretch. Spread your hands,
your fingers, super wide so you really feel the
skin in between your fingers stretch really wide and then just reach up
really naturally from here. You don’t have to
come into a perfect shape or worry about rotation. Just reach up in a
way that feels good. We create length
through the side body. You might close
your eyes here again. Now that you know what you’re
doing you can close your eyes and feel it out. Think about lifting not
just through the side body but through the front body
and the back body, as well. Then like a little
monkey or something you’re reaching up and
imagine you’re now hanging from a tree branch
or something here so you might even claw
the fingers or take fists. (deep breathing) Begin to deepen your breath. Longer, louder, fuller breaths. We’re just feeling the
energy and the blood rush and you might be tired here
so you might take a big yawn. (yawning) Then here we go,
wiggle the fingertips actively. Wiggle the fingertips and
rain it down nice and slow. Great, then you’re
gonna take the fingertips out all the way in front and then continue to
reach your heart forward, palms come to the earth. You should start to feel
this in the outer right hip. Breathe deep. Then turn your elbow
creases towards the front and from here
reach your heart forward and slowly melt it down,
forehead to earth. I should say
forehead toward earth because the forehead’s
not gonna come to the ground. If you have a block
in your home practice you can actually bring the
block to your forehead here. Otherwise just let
the weight of the head hang kind of loose. Close your eyes once
again, deepen your breath. You might rock
gently side to side, feeling the
sensation in the outer hip but we’re also starting to
create space in the lower back. Again, elbow
creases are forward here so we’re not
clenching or we’re rounding but we’re rotating the
shoulders out, elbows forward. Excuse me,
elbow creases forward. Soft, easy movement as you sway
like a branch in the breeze back and forth, back and forth. (deep breathing) Great, then root
down through your bum. Hips grow heavy here. We’re gonna slowly roll it up. Tuck the chin into the chest,
nose toward the navel. We round forward,
shoulders forward. This is my favorite
Mister Burns moment, you know. Then from here
we plant the seed, roll all the way
down at the coccyx and then slowly grow awareness all the way up
through the spine, all the way up, up, up. Rolling. Chin stays tucked ’til
the last possible minute all the way up. We rise head over heart,
heart over pelvis. Let’s switch the
legs nice and easy. Right heel comes in. Left leg comes out. Siddhasana is this shape. Once again, this
time a little faster we spread the fingertips,
inhale, reach to the sky. Lift and lengthen through
all four sides of the torso. Maybe you take a big yawn here. (yawning) Maybe a lion’s breath. (exhaling) Rotate the wrists. Awesome. Then send the
fingertips forward. Wiggle the fingertips,
rain it down, and send it all the way forward. Keep your heart
open, chest open, elbow creases towards the front and you’re gonna
come into your fold here. Really feeling a nuance, what’s
going on in that left hip. Then same thing,
you’ll close your eyes or soften your gaze and start to rock
gently back and forth like a branch
swaying in the breeze. (exhaling) Relax your shoulders,
relax your neck. Move how you wanna
move throughout your day. Move like that on your mat. Nobody wants to be a basket case rushing from one
thing to the next, feeling late and unprepared
and grasping or pushing or trying to catch up. Mm-mm. Set the tone for your day by paying attention to the
quality of movement on your mat. Just allowing sensation
to occur, not forcing it. (exhaling) This is that Sukha, that ease. And it takes practice. Take one more
cycle of breath here. Then again, plant a
seed right at the tailbone. So root down, thigh bones heavy, tuck the chin, and
slow this one down a lot. Slow, slow, slow. Rolling up. That seed at the base of the
spine starts to grow taller. The chin stays
tucked as long as possible as you roll up super slow, feeling your way all the way
up through the spinal column. The neck nice and long. The posture grows tall. Eventually the third
eye and the crown lift up. Head over heart,
heart over pelvis. Alright, a little rinse. Squeeze shoulders up to
the ears as you breathe in. Take a deep breath
in here then pause, hold the breath at the top. If you want you can come
into a little mudra here, index finger and thumb. Retaining the breath at the top. Squeeze and lift,
squeeze and lift, squeeze and lift,
squeeze and lift. Then exhale with a big sigh. (exhaling) Drop the shoulders. Awesome. Let’s do that two more times. Inhale. Squeeze and lift. Shoulders rise with mindfulness all the way up to the earlobes. Then soften the
skin of the face. Maybe you take the mudra here. Retain the breath. Hold. Squeeze and lift. Actively lifting,
lifting, lifting. Then here we go. Exhale to drop. (exhaling) And one more time. Squeeze and lift. Inhale, hold or
retain the breath at the top. Pause, hold it, you got it. Find the ease in the jaw and
the skin of the forehead. Here we go. Drop and release. (exhaling) Awesome. Allow your hands to rest gently
on the tops of the thighs and keep the mudra if you like. Relax the shoulders
completely down, down, down and just notice how you feel. Take a little
moment of meditation here to just close
the eyes and notice. Sweet. Then draw the palms
together at your heart. Once again, Anjali mudra. Take a deep breath in. (inhaling) Then exhale. Release the palms, come forward. We’re gonna go all
the way onto all fours so take your time getting there. Keep a little smile on your face or just a little
softness in the face. If you woke up on
the wrong side of the bed just start to soften. It happens. You wake up grouchy,
God knows why. Just notice where
you are and pay attention to the things you can
do to alter how you move and how you feel. You’re gonna go
right into Cat-Cow so you’ll drop the
belly and open the chest. Then you’ll round through
spinal flexion, chin to chest, navel draws up. Then moving in your own time at a pace that feels
awesome for you this morning. Again, if you feel sore or a
little rickety, it’s all good. That’s why we’re here. If you feel weak or
tired or sad, accept that and let’s see if we
can just use this practice to create shift, to feel fresh. Take a moment or
two to bump the hips to one side and then the other. Maybe draw
circles with the ribcage. Get a little weird. Get weird. (deep breathing) Then we’ll continue
to explore body and space and wake up not
just the physical body but the emotional body,
mental, your mind, as well, by bringing our
head below our heart, curling the toes under and peeling the
tail up for Downward Dog. Pedaling it out. Nice and easy. Setting yourself
up for greatness by really clawing
into the fingertips, taking any
pressure out of the wrist and then keep that rotation
that we had in Siddhasana, Forward Fold, earlier with
elbow creases reaching forward. Rotating forward. Yup, then take a deep
breath in, still the body, and exhale everything out. (exhaling) Again, deep breath in. Body’s in stillness, you got it. (inhaling) Nice cleansing breath
out through the mouth. (exhaling) And one more.
Claw through the fingertips. You can bend the knees as
generously as you need here. (inhaling) And empty it out. (exhaling) Awesome. Baby steps to
the top of the mat. Really feel the nuance as you
step baby steps to the top. Waking up through
the feet is so important before we put our
shoes on for the day. Stretching through the Achilles. No metaphor there. Through the calve. And finally up to Forward Fold. Feet hip width apart where we really wake
up the backs of the legs, bend the knees to, once again, send some love to
the lower back body. Allow the weight of
the head to round forward so you feel the
stretch through the whole back, shoulders relaxing down. And again, this one’s
for our mental health. Calming the mind, bringing the
head down, shaking it loose and adding that layer of breath to really bring a freshness to our cellular body. (exhaling) Awesome. Take one more cycle of breath
here to do whatever you want. Keep the feet nice
and planted firmly rooted, grounding for the day. Yes. Then release the arms
and then slowly roll it up. As you roll up, once
again, put a little awareness. If you like the
metaphor of the seed or maybe a little white light,
whatever works for you, put it at the base of the spine and grow awareness energy all the way up
through the spinal column as you rise up tall, keeping the chin
tucked as long as you can, and then lengthening
up through the crown. These types of awareness
practices, they’re just tenfold any sort of
muscular thing you could do even though of course
we wanna build muscles to support the
spine for good posture. But just taking some time in
the morning to build awareness and tend to the energy that
runs up and down the spine is so good for
maintaining healthy posture throughout the day. Lift up through the front body. Think of this whoosh of energy kind of lifting your heart up, maybe lifting the chin slightly. Then it’s all
about balance, baby, so ground the tailbone down, lift up through
the inner thighs, and hopefully you all
are doing these videos wherever they are every week and you did our
healthy knee video. You can engage the
inner thigh and even the quad to lift the kneecaps up a
bit here and play with that. Then nice and easy
you’re gonna take your hands and you’re gonna
bring ’em to the left side to look behind you
as if you were going, “Right this way.” Then you’re gonna
swing ’em to the front and take it to the other side. Then you’re just
gonna speed up that action and do a little wake up call. I like to call this
knocking at heaven’s door. I feel like I read
that in a Kundalini book back when we had our
nose in the books, man. This is a little
great good morning thing. The key is to not get in your head, to keep length up
through the crown, to keep a soft bend in the knees and that’s why I said to
engage your inner thigh and the quads to protect the knees. Keep your feet
firmly rooted on the ground. Keep it going. It’s okay to smile if
you feel a little silly. Then the last, the best part is when you just
give yourself a little (smacking) slap. And then allow your
breath to be a part of this. Again, the morning
practice is so great because you’re not
carrying the baggage of the day. But if you have
any grogginess here, just give a little (exhaling). Whatever feels awesome. Then speed it up like kind of
an awkward amount of speed. (rapidly breathing) You’re gonna come
back to Mountain Pose. Here we go. Open the palms out wide,
lift the chest, and be still. Close your eyes. Feel. Notice. Bend the knees. Fingertips are
gonna go down to come up. Inhale, reach for the sky. Big stretch. Exhale, rain it down. Move the fingertips, wiggle
the toes or lift the toes. Forward Fold. Then you’re gonna step
just the left foot back. Left foot steps back here
and we lower the knee down. Then inhale to look forward. You’re gonna think about your
heart really reaching forward and tug your
right hip crease back. Great. Big breath in. Exhale to lift the back knee. This is an option, of course. You can keep it nice and low if your energy level’s
still kind of low and soft. Then from here
plant the left palm. Inhale. Reach up towards the sky and as you do that
lift the hips, inhale. Just a bit. Front knee stays bent.
Then exhale, bring it down. Awesome.
Back foot up. Back foot comes
up to meet the front. I’m human, okay? Then inhale, Halfway Lift. When you do this we’re
gonna take airplane arms so open the shoulders. When you feel like
you have that length, send the
fingertips out behind you, palms pressing into
an imaginary surface. Now we’re building strength. Front body meeting the back
body for good posture all day. One more breath. Maybe lift up
through the triceps a little. Then exhale to release. (exhaling)
Forward Fold. Awesome, step the
right toes back this time. Lower the right knee. Then loop the
shoulder and inhale. Really send your
heart, chest forward. Just check to make
sure this front knee is not going super
far beyond the toes or far beyond the ankle really. Then pull that left
hip crease back just a bit. Inhale. Then exhale. Keep the heart opening forward as you maybe use that exhale
to bring the back knee up. Really lift the back of that
knee towards the ceiling. Then right hand
will come to the earth and we revolve, open
the heart, the chest forward as you bring the
left fingertips up. Big twist. Waking up the digestive organs. All of the internal organs. Really breathing deep and then using an
exhale to guide it back down. This time we’ll
step the back foot, excuse me, the front foot back. Hello, good morning, Adriene. You’re coming into a Plank Pose. You can lower to the knees here. You just wanna find nice,
long extension in the neck. If you’re in Plank,
rock front to rock back. Create one nice long line of
awareness from crown to tail. If you’re on the knees see if you can
rotate the shoulders away and again find that
length from crown to tail. Three, two, take it
to Downward Dog, one. Awesome work. Feel it out. Inhale deeply. Exhale. (exhaling)
Everything. Drop the left heel
down here and inhale. Lift the right leg up high. (inhaling) Exhale, step it all
the way up and through. Pivot on the back foot. Slowly roll up Warrior I
but take your time. Tend to the lower body first and then reach the
fingertips up high to the sky. (exhaling) Inhale. (inhaling) Exhale. (exhaling) One more breath, inhale. (inhaling) Then exhale. Keep long through all
four sides of the torso as you open up
Warrior II to the left. Send your gaze past
your right fingertips. Everything that
you’ve kind of cultivated in your practice so far,
embody it here. Go through your checklist. Inhale. (inhaling) Exhale. Peaceful Warrior. Reach the right fingertips
all the way up and back. Front knee stays
over the front ankle or reaching forward,
shin bone reaching forward. Inhale in. Exhale, Extended Side Angle. Right elbow to the
top of the right thigh. Left fingertips to the sky. You can also take
the right fingertips down and that top hand forward
depending on where you are in your body today. Here we go, inhale. (inhaling) And exhale, navel
draws in for support. (exhaling) Here we go. Peaceful, not Peaceful
Warrior, Reverse Triangle. Straighten through the front leg and send your right fingertips
all the way up and back. Big breath, big stretch. Should feel awesome. Then here we go. Triangle Pose. You’re gonna keep
the front leg straight as you reach the
right fingertips forward. Keep that length in all four
sides that we’ve been doing and then here we go. Left fingertips up. Right fingertips down. See if you can get a
little core activation here rather than collapsing down. Inhale. Exhale. Warrior II.
Bend that front knee. Gaze forward. Awesome work. Deep breath in. (inhaling) Long breath out. (exhaling) Peaceful Warrior
just for a breath. Inhale. Hey, Benji! Welcome! Exhale to
cartwheel all the way down. Plant the palms,
step the right toes back. Big breath. Exhale, lower all
the way to the belly or, if you’re ready,
Chaturanga to Up Dog. You’re gonna use a breath to
open the chest, open the heart. You might be in a
nice low Cobra here. Then send the hips up
and back for Downward Dog. An option is to also
come to all fours first and then peel up from there. Be kind to your body, be gentle. From Down Dog we’ll
anchor the right heel this time and inhale, lift
the left leg up high. Exhale, step it all
the way up and through. There’s no rush. Pivot on the back foot. Find your footing first. Then wake up the spine by tucking the chin
and rolling it up from here so you’re not
leading with the arms. Then again, tend to
the lower body first. Then reach the
fingertips high to the sky. Virabhadrasana One from there. Strong legs. (exhaling) Breathing deep. (deep breathing) Press into the outer
edge of that back foot. Engage the right inner thigh. Inhale. (inhaling) Slow exhale. Open to Warrior II
on the right. (exhaling) Deep bend in that front knee. Drop your center,
wake up the core, gaze over the left fingertips. Warrior II, Virabhadrasana Two. Drop your center a little more. You got it. Here we go. Peaceful Warrior,
left fingertips reach forward up and back. Create space. Set the tone for your day. If you’re struggling, see if you can
meet it with a softness, with a fierce breath and a
strong connection to your core, your center. Inhale. Smile. Then exhale,
again, from your center. Navel draws in. Extended Side Angle. Take up space here,
lots of space. Strong body. Starting to wake up,
create a little heat. Inhale. Lengthen. Exhale. Navel to spine. (exhaling) Then big inhale. And exhale, here
we go all the way back. This time Reverse Triangle
so straighten that front leg. Reach the left fingertips back. Notice if the ribs
are coming out here. See if you can
dial it in just a bit. Hug the front
body to meet the back. Big stretch, big breath, relax the shoulders
away from the ears. Inhale. Keep lifting up
from the pelvic floor. Then exhale. Trikonasana, Triangle. Reach the left
fingertips forward. Maintain that length. Then here we go,
tipping our teacup down and revolving the heart open. (deep breathing) Breathing deep. Pulling that
left hip crease back. Right inner thigh
is nice and engaged. Take one more big breath here. And exhale, navel to spine. (exhaling) Then here we go all the
way back up nice and slow. Warrior II.
Pull the pinkies back. (exhaling) Nice work, here we go. Peaceful Warrior
just for one breath. Inhale, reach it back. It’d be cool if Benji
came back right here again but he’s gone. Exhale,
cartwheel all the way back. He’s fired. Plant the palms, step
the left toes back to Plank. Just kidding, he’s never fired. Here we go. Mindful Mountain Climbers just
for about 10 seconds here. So you can do
whatever pace feels good. It can be really fast
or it can be really slow. Mindful Mountain
Climbers for five, keep going, neck nice and long, four, keep going, you got it, three, maybe cross it over,
maybe speed it up, two, and one. Lower all the way to the belly. (exhaling) Awesome work. Swim the fingertips around
to interlace behind the tail. Press into the tops of the feet and keep the
heels hip width apart. Then loop the shoulders
back away from the ears. Engage the upper back body. Then tuck the chin into the
chest and slowly roll it up. Keep the neck nice and long. You can close your eyes and
gaze right at your third eye. Inhale in. Exhale, stay lifted. Inhale in. Exhale, stay lifted. Then maybe a
mantra for your day. Inhale in. Stay lifted, my friend. Here you go.
Release everything, awesome. Press away from the earth. Come back to all fours. Walk the knees into center. Child’s Pose. Fingertips all the
way back towards the toes as you round the forehead down. Take a nice,
fresh breath in here. Exhale to empty it out. (exhaling) Press into the tops of the feet. Slowly, again, tuck
in the chin to the chest. Roll it up. If this is not
available to you in the knees you can just come to a
nice cross legged position or comfortable seated
position of your choice and we’ll roll all the way up. Hands can come to
the tops of the thighs. Let me come all the way up, lengthening through the crown. Keep the lift. If you’re feeling sensation in
your feet, that’s the point. We’re gonna take a
little twist to the left, we’re not gonna be here long. Feet might be
starting to wake up, tingle. Quote me on that one, please. Then back through center. Gentle twist to the right. Hug everything to the midline. Protect this
lower back and this SI. This is gonna feel great. Come back to center. I promise, guys. Palms come together. We’re gonna push
’em out to come forward. Then you’re gonna
swing the legs to one side and then send them
all the way out long and feel the sensation
in your legs, the blood, might even see the
color in your feet. Whew, Dandasana. Hands are gonna come to
the tops of the thighs here or at your sides and
you’re gonna breathe deep and just feel the
sensation in your feet. (exhaling) Beautiful. Now hug the left knee in. Once again, hug the left knee in and just a gentle
twist to the left. Then this time turn
your gaze towards the front and you’re just gonna nod
front, I mean up and down. Really we’re wanting to find
this juicy action of the down, the chin to the chest. You should feel
it in the left trap. No tension or stress in
the neck and shoulders today. Connecting the
lower body intelligence with the higher self,
the upper body intelligence. Communication. It all collects in the
neck, at least for me. Alright, after one more
delicious chin to chest here, left elbow really hugging in so you could feel that deep
stretch, then you’ll release. We’re gonna do a quick
Baddha Konasana in between. Bring the soles
of the feet together. You can massage the arches
and inhale, lift your chest. Exhale, ground down
through the thighs. Inhale, lift your chest more. Exhale, ground down
through the thighs. Maybe a little Butterfly today. Why not? Gentle. ♫ Memory (humming) It’s the one of maybe three
songs I can play on the piano. If you know it
tell me down below. Down below in
the comments, jeez. Squeeze your
right knee to the chest. Send your left leg out long. Give it a big hug
and a nice gentle, so no pushing, no cranking,
twist to the right. When you feel
like you have that, maintain that in the spine
and then look forward again. And here we go. Nodding the head up and down. To really find the stretch
that I’m inviting you to find you wanna spiral your elbow in. That’s why we’ve been working with elbow
crease shining forward so you really get that
rotation of the shoulder wrapping around and down. Just play with
that a little bit here. Make sure you’re breathing deep. If you lost the breath,
nice, conscious breath, come back to it now. Close your eyes and get
all zeny a little bit here. Relax your jaw. You’re gonna have
an awesome day, man. You’re gonna have a great day. Even if challenge
strikes, which it does, you’re gonna be
present, centered, ready for anything. Take one more chin to chest. Maybe lean your
heart forward a bit. Come all the way back. Soles of the feet come together. Inhale in. This time send your
heart up and then forward. Really drive your heart forward. Maybe grab the
toes or the ankles here and one last Forward Fold. Feel that deep stretch
through the inner groin. (deep breathing) Take some super
loving breaths here, some super power
breaths in and out. Baby pulse if it feels
good but be really mindful. Keep your elbows in here. Then one last time, plant that
seed in the tailbone area, the base of the spine,
tuck your chin into the chest and slowly roll it up. As you roll up, you’re gonna
bring the knees together. You’re gonna sit back, way back, and maybe the shins
and the knees come up here and we wake up, put a
little fire in the belly. Maybe take the fingertips out. This is the last
bit so hang with me. Maybe you take palms to the left and extend the
right leg out long. Give it a try. Maybe you take palms
namaste to the right, extend the left leg out long. Give it a try. And back to center, here we go. Let’s just burst a
big burst of fresh breath and fresh energy. Squeeze everything in, in, in. Squeeze. Peek at me if you need to. Then exhale, navel
to spine for stability. Send it all the way out and up. Fingertips, toes up. ♫ Navasana Awesome, and then release. Sukhasana. Close your eyes, get
still for just one moment. I choose to have an awesome day. Clean slate. Inviting a freshness
into the body and the mind. Throw the hands to the heart. Hats off to you. Thank you so much for spending a little
time with me this morning and hundreds,
millions, actually, of people around the world. We take time to fill our cup we can then allow it to overflow so we can help others find a meaningful
contribution to humanity. But there’s no
pressure to do that in a day. So just do your best
and find what feels good. Deep breath in. (inhaling) Long breath out. (exhaling) If this video helped you,
share it with someone you know to help them spread the love. We’ll finish by bringing the
thumbs up to the third eye and bowing to the awesome within and recognizing
that in all beings. Namaste. Have a kick butt day! (upbeat music)

  19. Thank you Adriene. Yes, I learned "Memories" when I was a little girl on the piano. At one time my repetoire consisted of five songs but now the piano is a dear companion to me as I learn and teach music. Yoga and music go hand-in-hand with me. So grateful for your kind, compassionate spirit and guidance. Namaste.

  20. This was such a great morning practice, Adrienne. I've been practicing for a little over 6 months and can feel so much improvement in moving mindfully physically and mentally. Today's gonna be great !(:

  21. Your videos have been helping me fall in love with Yoga for over a month now and this one was my favourite so far ❤️ Thank you for what you do!

  22. Dear Adrienne: Thank you so much for your help!, ive been struggling with a lot of things in my life, including my bar exam for becoming a lawyer. I never believed in yoga, i found it extremely boring and helplees, even though my friends recommended me to do it so many times.
    I proposed myself a "yoga challenge": just one week, doing your 11 minutes morning yoga and then 11 minutes in the night.
    Now I CANT start my day without your classes, it has helped me in many ways, its like my body asks to do some stretching to reset.
    I´ve been studying all day for 9 months, my exam is in two weeks, and now my back pain is gone, I feel more comfortable with my body and with myself, I start the day differently, with a purpose, and happier than ever. Now im doing your 40 minutes videos day and night, it relaxes me so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you and benji, send you a big hug from Chile, you are my favorite yoga teacher. Namaste!

  23. I think you were about to belt out a song from Phantom of the Opera? Still hanging in there with you, and I’m getting stronger, I know, by my endurance level is much higher AND my balance is improving , slowly. I know my sentence structure is horrible, because I can’t see what I’m typing until I’m finished. Yeah Adrienne, I’m ready for you to serenade us a little song. You’re a an entertainer, I can tell. You know all the musicals and probably were in some! You breaking out in song reminds me of my musical days with all my daughters! You’re so much fun to do yoga with! Thank you again! Blessings to you and yours and have a wonderful 4th of July!

  24. Stretching is beginning NOT to hurt as much…finally able to dedicate an entire week with no missing sessions….can finally feel the benefit of yoga during my day💖💖💖💖💖yay🙏🏽

  25. Thank you for a wonderful way to start my morning. I woke up in a serious funk and needing healing, and this was a good step for being able to dive into the shadow work from an empowered perspective. P.S. I love your "weirdness"….
    ….the origin of the word weird meant a fate, and also magickal and supernatural. So please accept it as a genuine compliment!

  26. Had to give this a like as soon as I saw Benjis face!! to cute!! haha thank you yet again sweet soul. I feel light and happy and like I'm gonna have a freaking goog kick butt day!! ❤

  27. I know you made this a couple of years ago, but I seriously love your videos. You're real and funny and I'm glad I stumbled upon you. A lot of the other videos I have watched (from other instructors) feel so staged and stiff. I always feel comfortable when I follow along with you. You are seriously awesome 🙂

  28. Thanks so much for this perfect morning practice. I've been struggling with arthritis pain, exhaustion and emotional trauma and have been off of mat for 2 weeks. I feel this practice began to bring me back. Blessings to you ❣🕉

  29. love the seated twist with nodding! but i got a little triggered when u mentioned memory because the new cats movie has humans without cat noses painted on them so what is the point? it feels white-washy to me =[

  30. I love all of Adriene's videos, but this is a particular favourite. A really great way to start the day! Thank you 💗

  31. Last year I had done the revolution month but it was hard to make time afterwards. But from now on i find time every day. Two weeks ago I had completed the thirty dedicated days. Next week I will start the next 30-day challenge. In between, I look for random yoga that I think apply to me. But it doesn't really matter much what exercise I do, after every video my body feels better and old wounds seem to give less restrictions. I am getting more space between my joints. Everything seems to go more smoothly, especially my neck and shoulders. It also gives the necessary rest. I think I have slowly become addicted to yoga. A good addiction with the advantage that when I'm old they can fold me in half. That is more sustainable and saves wood, which saves another tree 🙂 what proves how sustainable yoga is. Of course it is not always that easy, but I do make it. When I look at you it all seems easy and self-evident. But you really feel how long you can continue to bring people a little further. That is very nice. Sometimes I am completely lost. Or sometimes it all seems easy but my whole body vibrates and I have trouble not to fall over. But things are getting better and better.

  32. Amazing practice as always 😊 Thank you for sharing and for all the wake up tingles. I'm ready to have a kick ass day 💓💓

  33. Your voice is very soothing and pleasant to listen to. I always learn something from your videos, not just about my body, but also my thoughts/feelings. (I love “ Memories” from Cats) Thanks!! Cheers, Lisa from Norway

  34. Anybody else like me I've been watching this 1 video my favorite and listening to it 4 a couple of years I listened to it several mornings a week. She's just my morning buddy I just love it and listen to it and say the words with her and laugh with her. I'm human okay?

  35. Adriene: singing
    husband: laughing in another room
    Me: what are you laughing at?
    Husband: whatever you're watching in there
    Me: oh that's Adriene – that's why I love her

  36. Adriene, your yoga videos have truly been a gift from God in my life this past few months. I have struggled with crises in every loved relationship in my life, and there have been times I haven’t known if I was strong enough to get through.
    Your videos help to remind me of my own strength and of God’s strength, and I truly thank you for the kindness and service you give through these videos.
    You are amazing. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  37. I did the 45 minute deep stretch routine yesterday evening and felt this amazing release in my left hip area for the first time ever (it was the lizard that did it for me 😜 ) and it had me moaning with delight on my mat. Then I did this video this morning and that openess in my hip brought a whole new level of awesome to my practice. I’ve been following Adriene for I don’t even know how many years years and I owe so many of the changes in my body to her and her amazing videos. Thank you, Adriene! You are a true inspiration.

  38. Adrienne, you do excellent job in our world.. Every morning of practicing yoga with you gives me a great start my day. Namaste🙏❤️😊

  39. It's been awhile since I did this one, so "memories" came back 😉 Since I first did this one regularly I've been practicising asanas and pranayama on a daily basis for a few months now. My physical and mental health have improved and I noticed it especially during this routine today. Adriene, you're a lifesaver and an inspiration to me. I hope to keep learning from you! Namaste, so much love! 🙏💞💕

  40. Once again you are helping me with coming back to myself – doint stuff besides of work and other responsibilities, to plan things and aim higher. Thank you!

  41. It is what I consider a perfect August summer morning in eastern Penna. It's 64 degrees with low humidity. Yay!! I chose to start my day with this practice then off for a bicycle ride. awesome! Thank you Adriene! ~namaste xoxo
