Yoga With Adriene
Yoga With Adriene:
I often hear from people that they cannot do yoga because they are not flexible enough.
But being flexible is really the art of being open and available.
Open and available to what is current and present.
It’s an inside job, this… space… making.
We can start with the body but remember what the great yoga guides have shown us…
The body is a metaphor.
And I am no expert, but I suspect… there is a lot to balance and uncover.
This week we meditate on flexibility as conscious openness.
Booyah. Enjoy!

This has been a rough 2 weeks for me. My mom has Covid19 and pnuemonia. She is not going to recover. After days of being away from my yoga practice, this morning I decided it was time to get back to it. If ever there was a time where I need to stay in the moment, it is now. Thank you Adriene ~namaste xoxo Tell the people you love that you love them.

This year in school was rough. I felt lonely and felt not worthy. With the help of your videos and support from my close ones, I now feel so connected with the earth and myself. Self love, inner peace, and positive energy. Sending you positive energy always and forever.

Doing yoga in the middle of the coronavirus quarantine... Might continue even after😁 thank you for the yoga😁
My quarantine has become 6 hours of sitting in front of my laptop for school, then ~40 minutes of exercising with Chloe Ting instead of extra fries high cholesterol eating then whatever time I have left is either crying or yoga

I've watched and done this so many times I feel like I'm actually teaching it. I love this video soooo much!👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Julia Leonetti
Julia Leonetti:
I smiled so big when I opened this video tonight - I went off the calendar and tended to some tingly toes and fingers - it's been a long day on my feet and a busy day! This is just what I needed. I loved when you said at the beginning that YES, going to a class and holding poses will help with flexibility but this method can do that too and instead which is a great teacher moment on your part - different methods! This week I had a grade 5 student tell me that they didn't want to do a project the way I assigned it because there were too many steps and too much work - they said they can do the same work with less steps. I told them that yes, their method could be great but my method could be great too.
Long story short instead of stopping and changing - we can often add to our already existing practices.
Thank you as always - much love.
<3 Namaste <3

I am a dancer, and I started doing this with my friend every day since we are at home, and we wake up to do yoga over FaceTime.
Today was my first day of completing this video. I’m not flexible at all, but I’m hoping that if I do this everyday... maybe I can improve my flexibility. Thank you!!
Eryn Ann Millman
Eryn Ann Millman:
Since I was 10 years old in dance class, I'd wanted to be flexible like the other girls, but was always just frustrated. Now fast forward 13 years- I have been practicing with a few of your flexibility and deep stretch videos almost every day for only 6 weeks since lockdown began, and I am already seeing soo much progress in my flexibility and fitness. I have never been this flexible in my life, I never thought it was possible. And this is only the beginning. Thank you so much for teaching me control, space, and patience for my body that I have never, ever had, and never thought I would. Thank you for shining your light to the world, and teaching us to love ourselves. Much love.
Grace Law
Grace Law:
I have cerebral palsy, which is important because my muscles stretch out a lot less and get tighter a lot quicker than an able-bodied person's. My hip flexors are like steel cables. My knees turn in when I sit. I am completely, 100% not flexible. And I still do yoga five times a week because it eases my symptoms and allows me to function optimally. So to people who say they can't do yoga because they're "not flexible enough", you don't get flexible overnight, and you don't even need to BE particularly flexible. All you have to do is be who you are and have an open mind.

Lauren Smith:
"flexible in your mind" thank you. I needed to hear this today.

Since i'm homeschooled, i have to do something for P.E (physical Education), and my mom was asking me what i wanted to do for p.e. i said "well, i could just do Yoga with Adriene," and she nodded and said ok! today i came to this video to help with my flexibility (i'm sorta flexible, but not that much). I really enjoy this!! thank you!!

I have been making life changes over the past few years and cut drugs, tobacco, alcohol and other toxic vices from my life completely. I recently took up body building and I am realizing how important it is to be healthy spiritually as well as physically. I have been wanting to try Yoga for some time and I stumbled upon your videos this morning. I just wanted to say thank you for providing another positive outlet for people like me to relieve stress and find peace. I am very grateful for these videos.

Hi Adrien loved this session, needed something like this where the the transition are smooth no hurrying up. Really a calming and yet a great stretching session. Almost all my parts have become stiff due no physical activity. Feeling good about finding u. Planning to do the 30 days yoga session. Thanks
Kudos to Adriene for still hearting comments more than a year later ❤️✨🥰

This is one of my all time favourite practices that I love to come back to time and time and time again. I completely stopped my practice when I moved just about 9 months ago but this was exactly what I needed after a poor night's sleep and all the stress.

Holaaaa, Adrienne, love this stretch, helped me a lot.... I've been practicing yoga with you for the past 40, days, started with the 30 day challenge, now I choose the ones I think will help me, but since I started with you my body has noticed the changes and that's awesome, some pains are gone. Am 64 years old, but don't look my age, jejejeje. And my flexibility has improved more, cause through my life I have been exercising, which has been good. Now I am getting the discipline I need for everything and being consistent. Love you precious, and thank you so much for sharing your experience. Namaste. God bless you.🙋🏻😘🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻👏🏻🎉

I love your words, your gentleness, and you always reminding us that we are not only connected to you by practicing with you, but also to all those people watching all over the world, maybe the same second I am. I love this thought.
