Yoga Camp Day 9 – I Am Bold
100 Comments


– Hey everyone. Welcome to 30 Days of Yoga Camp. It’s day nine and the mantra for today is I am bold. Let’s rock. (invigorating music) Alright, today we’re going to begin in extended child’s pose. So take the knees as
wide as your yoga mat. Bring the two big toes to touch and then when you’re ready, settle on in for today’s practice. Fingertips reach towards the front edge. Heart melts towards the earth. Forehead kisses the mat. And we take a second here (breathing in) to tune in. (breathing out) I think I’ve mentioned this before, but if this is not a great
shape for your body, adjust. You can lift the hips up, come to kind of a heart
to earth pose here. You can curl the toes under. Or you can just sit up nice and tall and close your eyes and
relax your shoulders. So for me, that’s what
yoga camp is all about. (breathing) Taking something and digesting it, processing it, and then making adjustments as needed. The practice of staying
presence, present, excuse me, definitely translates off the mat. Staying present, aware. Go on and close your eyes here, and once you get settled in begin to notice your breath. (breathing) Give thanks for this moment. And know in your heart that you are worthy of
this time for yourself. Taking this opportunity
to tend to your body. (breathing) Taking this opportunity
to tend to your mind, mental health. (breathing) And even maybe even using this opportunity to tend to your heart
or your spirit today. Let’s see what happens. We’re gonna move in a circle here today. Inhale, press into the tops of the feet. Press into the palms. And we’re going to move
in a nice slow circle. So as you inhale the heart shines forward, the belly drops kind of
like we do in cat-cow. And then as you exhale, you come around and back. You round through the spine. You come through that
extended child’s pose. Maybe you take a second here to pause. Ahhh. And then keep it going. So the hands might need to adjust. You might feel more stable
with the toes curled under. Listen to your body, right? You are your best teacher. Ooh, you might hear some crackles and some sound effects from the body. Move nice and slow here. Let’s begin to wake up today. (breathing) So the mantra today, I am bold, is going to be awesome
in those standing poses, but can be awesome even here. So how can you connect to that? Maybe it’s just owning
this time for yourself. Reverse your circle if
you haven’t already. Begin to play. Again, linger in the
places that it feels good to hang out in a little bit longer. Maybe find a little catch
and you rock through. Maybe you’re ready for practice today and you’re already starting to be bold in your movement, nice and creative as you check in with the shoulders, the hips. (breathing) I like to call this drunk cat-cow, which many of you know. Some of you may be hearing
for the first time. When I used to teach high-schoolers yoga, I’d always say, “Drunk on love.” And they’d be like,
“Yeah, right, whiskey.” I’d be like, “Whatever.” They’re doing yoga, they’re breathing. So beautiful. So get drunk on your libation of choice. I’ll choose love. And we’ll just do a couple more circles. So notice if you’ve already
begun to get bored here. Normal human thing. See if you can explore
other areas of the body. Side body stretch. Fingers, toes. Neck. (breathing) And then when you feel satisfied, we’ll come back to all fours. Walk the knees underneath the hip points and wrists right underneath the shoulders. Press away from your yoga mat. Press into the tops of the feet. Take a deep breath in. Then exhale. Curl the toes under, slowly today. Peel up from the tail. Downward facing dog, with the knees bent. Strong connection hand to earth. Melt the heart back. Big breath in, my friends. Big breath out as you begin to
straighten through the legs. Hmmm, couple of moments here on your own to pedal it out. (breathing) Great, when you’re ready, take it for a nice slow walk
up towards the front edge. Nice and slow today. Negotiate, make your way to forward fold. When you arrive, take a couple of awesome breaths here. You deserve it. Maybe walking the fingertips to one side and then the other. Keep breathing here. (breathing) And then when you’re ready, close your eyes, be brave, be bold, and roll it up. Nice and slow. Consciously press into the feet and as you begin to roll up through the staircase of the spine find that natural lift in the heart. This is that natural lift, that natural light within if you will. Just roll with me. And then right away here, we’ll reach the fingertips
high up towards the sky and begin to open up
through the side body. So take your right hand
to your left wrist. Think up and over as you
have soft knees here. Do a side body stretch to the right. Keep deepening the breath
here as you inhale. Reach up towards the sky. Climb. And then over to the left. Left hand grabs right wrist. Soft knees here, not locked. Little awareness through the pelvis. Inhale to center. Exhale, rain it down. Mountain pose. Take a second to go
through your checklist. Lengthening the tailbone down. Activating through the lower body. Most importantly, begin to connect to your center. Center. Whatever that means to you. Finding that lift up from
the pelvic floor perhaps. Maybe it’s just closing
your eyes for a moment and sending awareness there. And take a second to loop the shoulders forward, up and back a couple times. Nice big circles with the shoulders. Forward, up and back. Hmm. And then bring the
fingertips to the shoulders. And we’re going to reverse that, kind of like a swim here with the elbows. So now taking it forward, down and back, one at a time. Notice if you’re clenching in the feet, or locking through the knees. Just keep expanding that awareness. This one’s kind of fun. Great, then the fingertips where they are. Come back to center. And big circles with the elbows as you bring them forward, up and back. Really try to take up space. Move nice and slow. If you’re dealing with a shoulder injury or you know that you’re
tending to the shoulder, you know to take it easy here. Right? Again notice what’s going on in the feet, what’s going on in the pelvis. Let’s do one more big circle. Inhale. Elbows reach forward. Up and back and then exhale. We release everything. Ahh, mountain pose. Great,chin to chest. Now big circles with the nose. You can close your eyes here. Notice that the shoulder
are wanting to collapse, the heart collapse here. So see if you can keep the shoulder blades drawing together. I’m exaggerating here, but remember this work we just did. Shoulder blades drawing together, heart lifting, as you draw
your circles with the nose. So I like to share circles with the nose rather than 80s neck rolls. Save that for another time, another night. (laughs) Some generations are like, “Yeah.” And others are like, “No.” I’m with the yeah committee. And reversing your circle
if you haven’t already. And so we do this to warm up the neck, but I’m also giving you just the chance to expand awareness
through the fingertips, the pinkies, the toes Right? Awesome, and then back to center. Alright, let’s rock ‘n roll. Inhale, big breath as you
reach the fingertips up. And big breath as we send
it down forward fold. (breathing) Take a second here. Relax the head, the neck, the shoulders. Uh, hm, hm. Notice if you’re gripping anywhere and then everyone lower back love. Bend your knees super generously. Ah. Send the tail towards the ground, as if you were sitting on a chair. We’re gonna keep the arms down here, so don’t panic. And then just kind of rocking front to back a little bit in the heels. And the toes. You can use your hands
here to brace yourself. And yes, we’re waking up
the muscles of the legs for our bold standing postures, but we’re also giving
the lower back some love. And then just make sure
you’re not holding, clenching in the head,
the neck, the shoulders. (breathing) You can even move your tail a little bit. That feels good. Sweet, and then we let that go. Straighten through the legs. Inhale, halfway lift. Exhale, soften and bow. (breathing out) Inhale, reach for the sky, bend the knees. Press into the feet consciously. Spread the fingertips. And exhale. Namaste, hands to heart. Namaste. Connecting, honoring, acknowledging the highest version of yourself. So you can’t hate on yourself when you are in namaste, you know. It’s a connect to your best self. It’s like those days when
you look in the mirror and you’re like, “Alright, alright. “Gonna be a good day, you know.” So I’m just sharing that. It could just, you know, sometimes it’s just we
get into that robot mode, so sometimes it is just
as simple of going like “Okay, cool, I love myself.” Here we go, inhale, reach it up. Exhale, diving forward. (breathing out) When you catch up here, inhale with your breaths. You may not move with me and that’s okay. Don’t get frustrated. Flat back. Exhale. Follow it, the breath down. Then we’ll plant the palms. Walk the toes together. And step the right foot back, low lunge. Just stretch it out here. Rock front, ooh. Rock back. If you want to lower the knee here you’re welcome to. Take a second to find your alignment. Just check in with the body today. Opening up the hips a bit here or maybe a lot here. Big breath in. Big breath out as you
connect to your center. Hug those lower ribs in and step the back foot up. About midway. Right toes are at 45 degrees. Left toes pointing forward. Little pyramid posture here. Imagine peeling the left hip crease up. We stretch the legs. Breathe, breathe, breathe. (breathing) Great, then again. Fingertips to the mat. Connect to your center. Soften through the left leg. So bend your left knee. And step it back to your lunge. (breathing out) Awesome. We’re gonna step the back foot, excuse me, the left foot back, planting the palms and coming into a plank. The first plank of the day. Rock front, rock back. And then slowly lower to your knees. Hug the elbows in. And send your gaze forward as you slowly lower down. Cobra. Keep it nice and low. Baby cobra to start. Inhale, nice and easy. Awakening the spine. And exhale, forehead kisses the mat. Keep it going. Inhale, press into your foundation. Pull the elbows back. Keep it nice and soft and easy. And then exhale, forehead kisses the mat. One more, inhale again. Waking up the spine, the back body. Ahh. (breathing) And then following the breath down. Cool, curl the toes under. Connect to your center. Press into all 10 knuckles and we come back to that plank. Big breath in. Big breath out. Downward facing dog. (breathing) When you’re ready, step the right foot up, come into your nice low lunge. You can lower the back knee here, no prob. Take a second here to
check in with the body. Begin to open up through the hips. Notice if you’re crashing all your weight into your fingertips. See if you can lighten your load a little. (breathing) Use your breath; breathe,
breathe, breathe. Then inhale, loop the shoulders. Look forward. Exhale, soften through the legs and step that left foot up halfway. Left toes point towards the
front left corner of the mat. Right toes aim forward. We inhale in and exhale as you pull the right hip crease back full stretching the legs. (breathing) Great, connect to your center. Soften through the right knee and when you’re ready step
it back to your lunge. Awesome. Inhale, look forward. Exhale, plant the palms, you got this. Step the right toes back. Full plank or you can
lower the knees here. Inhale, gaze forward. Hook the elbows, hug them into the side body. Stay connected to your center as you slowly lower down. Inhale, baby cobra. Three times here. (breathing) Moving with your breath. See if you can ride the
wave of your breath here. (breathing) And after three, curl the toes under,
connect to your center. So really I usually don’t
like to use this word here, but go ahead today and suck your navel up towards your spine. Activate from there. See what that does. If you move from there rather than just muscling
through with the arms. Changes it a little bit. Yes, I felt that. Inhale in, exhale to down dog. Repeat the slow walk from before or bend the knees. Inhale in, look forward. And on an exhale, hop, jump, float to the top. You can do a mix and match, too. Have a little fun. Forward full. (breathing) Inhale, halfway lift. Your version. Beautiful long neck. Pull your shoulders back and exhale. Slide it down. (breathing) Inhale, bend the knees. Reach the arms all the
way up and overhead. Full body stretch. And exhale, namaste. Soft knees, inhale, shake it off. Here we go again. Reach it up. Exhale, diving forward. Have some fun here. Inhale, halfway lift. Exhale, soften and bow. This time we’re gonna plant the palms, step or hop it back to plank. Feel free to lower the knees here. And move through your vinyasa, so. It could be nice and gentle or you could start to heat it up depending on where you are in your journey on the mat. We’ll meet in downward dog. The best thing to do is
take care of your body. (breathing) Check your ego, as they say, and be super mindful. (breathing) I read a great article the other day that I just could not agree more with about the true advanced yogis are the ones that are really pulling back and aiming for the balance, the integrity in the postures. And I think a lot of people in the Yoga with Adriene community are working on that right now and it’s really impressive. So here we go. Drop the left heel with
the right leg high. Spread the right toes as much as you can. Take another deep breath in here. Then use your exhale to
squeeze the right knee up and in towards your heart. Step it up into your lunge. We’re making out way to warrior one. So we’ll pivot on the back foot and take your time here as you grow a nice strong, bold warrior. So that means paying
attention to the foundation. Really rooting into the earth mindfully. Going through your checklist. Hugging the muscle to the bone. Working on your spirals and the body finding that
upward current of energy. So if you’re like, “I
don’t know warrior one.” Check out the Foundations of Yoga video. It’s really awesome. Just to kind of break
down the poses sometimes and find them in your body which is important. And then when you feel like you have a strong
connection to the earth, or whenever you’re ready, reach the fingertips up high. Now the mantra here is “I am bold.” So close your eyes here if you’re feeling super adventurous or you’ve been practicing for awhile. And repeat that mantra to yourself. Otherwise, hold on to a nice sharp focus, either down in front
or out in front of you, and say, “I am bold.” (breathing) If you’re feeling really adventurous, say it out loud. I am bold. Power through that back leg. Relax the shoulders. Sink into that front knee. I am bold. (breathing) Strong warrior. What are you going to
be a warrior of today? Peace? Love? We talked about the spiritual warrior. I feel like it’s got a bad rap, but that’s pretty cool, you know. Inhale in, one more breath, you got it. Exhale, warrior two. (breathing out) Pull the pinkies back. Find that lift through the center channel. Notice if your back
hand’s falling down here. Try to keep it even with the shoulders. Spread the fingertips. Lengthen, see if you can make your neck even longer here by drawing the shoulders down. Make sure you can see your front big toe. A lot going on here. Here we go. Strong, I am bold. You’re probably starting
to feel sensatioins all over the body, feel this heat creeping up on you. Ah, how awesome it is to be alive and to be able to feel
our bodies such as this. Here we go, let’s change it up. Inhale, straightening
through the front leg. Fingertips kiss up and overhead. So we soften. Exhale, warrior two. Focus right out beyond
the right fingertips here. Inhale, reach. And exhale, warrior two. I am bold. (breathing) Engage all the muscles here. So the muscles of the arms here it’s not kind of slack. We’re really sending energy
out through the fingertips as you inhale. And exhale. And one more, you got it. Exhale, warrior two. Relax the shoulders. Arms are getting tired I know. You’re doing great. Extended side angle. So we get a chance to return to this. Practice pulling the
right hip crease back, soften right elbow to the
top of the right thigh. Then go ahead and reach
the left fingertips up towards the sky. Or you can practice
plugging that shoulder in and sending it towards the
front edge of your mat. Other options here for
the full expression. Reaching the fingertips down. You know what to do here. Maybe you take a bind. So take a couple breaths wherever you are. And rather than just releasing everything, slowly use your breath to guide you back to your lunge, so the heart dials back. That foot nice and bright pivots so there’s lots of awareness. And then we plant the palms. Step it back. Move through a vinyasa, or send it straight to child’s pose. That’s where we’ll meet. Take a rest. (breathing) Great work, my friends. (breathing) When your reach your balasana, take a second to just notice your breath, heavy and hot. Hot and heavy. And let the fingertips reach towards the back edge of your mat and let the shoulders relax. (breathing) Remember why you came
to your yoga mat today. Maybe why you first sparked
an interest in yoga camp. Then remember you deserve
this time for yourself. We’re gonna do the same
thing on the other side and we’re gonna cool down and call it. Let’s do it. Reaching the fingertips forward. We come back to all fours. When you’re ready, walking the knees
underneath the hip points, curling the toes under. Press into the palms. Send it back, down dog. (breathing) Here we go. Dropping the right heel this time. Inhale, slide the left leg up high. Stay connected to your center here so the lower ribs are
not just splaying out, but we’re kind of hugging them in. And here we go. Inhale in. Exhale, stay connected to
your center as you squeeze left knee in towards the heart. Hover, connect to your strength. Then when you’re ready, step it up into your lunge, making your way to warrior one. Take your time. Really paying attention
to the foundation here. So where the toes are pointing. Maybe you go heel to arch alignment. Maybe you take a little wider stance. Tailbone lengthens down. I ground down through the back body. And I grow tall through the front body. So I feel like we often
rush in these poses and we never get to feel that sense of connect to the earth, to our muscles, to the foundation, to the lower body. But also it’s really hard
to take on the mantra and feel it, believe it to be true, I am bold, when you don’t pay
attention to the foundation. Right? It’s that image of a house. You know, if you’re gonna build a house, you want to make sure
the foundation is solid, and that it’s blessed. So that you can live in it happy, bold. So once you feel like you’ve kind of gone
through your checklist, take your fingertips up high. Close your eyes if you’re
feeling super adventurous. Power through the outer
edge of your right foot. So by closing the eyes
or softening the gaze, you just get a chance to kind of feel what the body’s doing and kind of let go of the shape, which i hard, I know. But I’m doing my best to
kind of guide you in a way to kind of let go of that. And I feel like we have to
condition ourself to do that. So take a couple more breaths here. You’re doing awesome. I am bold. (breathing) Maybe you’ve been waning
in an area of your life. Well here’s a great chance to go, “No, you know what? “I deserve this, I am bold. “I’m gonna stand up for myself. “I am confident.” Warrior two. So I find I can get a little bit deeper in my front leg in warrior two. Sometimes I even widen my stance. Although not lately. Lengthen the tailbone down again. Draw the lower belly in. And check out your warrior two. What happens if you lift the toes? What happens if you lift both palms in line with the shoulders spread the fingertips wide. Can you engage the muscles of the arm without creating tension? Then here we go. Inhale, power through that front leg. Draw energy up from the
arch of your right foot and inhale, reach. Exhale, soften. (breathing out) Inhale, reach. Exhale, warrior two. (breathing out) Inhale reach, moving with your breath. (inhaling and exhaling) Welcome that heat. Inhale, one more time. And exhale, sink deep, warrior two. I am bold. Here we go, softening here. Extended side angle. We get a chance to play. Pull the left hip crease back. Right hamstring parallel to the earth, maybe not today but one day. Front knee over front ankle and we play here. (breathing) So not only can we modify and find empowerment through modifying, but it’s fun to do different variations to stay alive in the pose. (breathing) Take care of your neck here. And then when you’re ready, dial your heart back to center, nice and slow. Stay conscious through the right foot. Great work. We come back to our low lunge. Inhale, look foward. And exhale. Plant the palms again. Optional, move through a vinyasa or take it straight to child’s pose. So you have the option here. We’ll meet, balasana. Once again. Let the weight of the shoulders go. Alright take one more nice
loving breath in here. And then we’ll slowly trace the fingertips all the way back up. Come back to all fours. Swing your legs over to one side. And we’ll come to lie flat on the back. Yay. When you arrive, give yourself a big ole hug. It should feel good in
the lower back body here. Snuggle those shoulder blades underneath the heart space. (breathing) You should feel really great if you feel like you have that kind of, I don’t want to be negative, but if you have the kind of turtle shell in the upper back body, my friends and I call it the quasimodo. Like if you’re feeling a little quasimodo, then you want to open up the chest and the muscles. I don’t mean that in a negative
or derogatory way at all. I just mean, if you feel tight in the upper back body, the simple snuggle of the shoulders underneath the heart space, so good. So you can do this in your bed, you can make that adjustment at your desk Even while sitting up. One more breath here as
you hug the knees in, just kind of neutralizing
through the back body. (breathing) Great. Then we’re just gonna take
the fingertips out Texas T. Scoop the tailbone up. Big breath in and exhale nice and passive recline twist today so you don’t have to extend. Just let it all go. Turn on over to your
right ear and breathe. If it’s helpful to bring the left hand to the outer edge of the
right thigh, please do. And close your eyes here. So depending on what time of day you’re doing your practice, give yourself permission. So you might, it might be the morning, you might have a full day ahead. Or maybe it’s the evening, you’ve completed a nice long day. Just give yourself permission here to just put any thoughts of the day that you either just had or that’s ahead. Put them just on hold. Just put them aside. I’m gonna put mine right over there on the windowsill, and just give yourself this peace here in the twist. Just a moment to peace out before we roll up off the mat and into the world. Listen to your breath here. And then starting with your right knees, we’re gonna have a nice
wide leg transition here. Start with the right knee. Let the weight of your
right leg take you over so we have this nice wide, kind of sprawled eagle transition. And then we’ll take it over to the right. Turn onto the left ear. (breathing out) And same thing. Just put your to-do list, put the day thus far, the day ahead to the side. And give yourself this last couple these last couple beats of peace here. Listen to the sound of your breath. Close your eyes, relax your jaw. (breathing) And same thing. Releasing and allowing the left knee to guide us back. And you have this nice wide knee here. We’re gonna reach the fingertips through. First grab the arches of the feet and then giddy-up the heels all the way up towards the sky. Giddy-up. That’s also a ancient yoga term. I forget what it is in sanskrit. But I can look that up for you. Once you find what feels
good here in stirrup posture, you might take the arms the hands around to the
outer edges of the feet. And then just find what feels good here. Either massaging the
feet, popping the toes. Everyone, see what happens when you lengthen your tailbone towards the front edge of your mat. Nice action there in the pelvis. And then even grounding down through the shoulders here. Feels quite nice. Nice and long in the neck. Take one more deep breath in. And then exhale, release everything. Soles of the feet come to mat. Ooh, yeah. We’re gonna take a little
windshield wiper here. So bring the palms out. We’re just gonna rock to one side. You can do the ankle
cross if that feels good. (breathing) And then to the other. And then making your way into shavasana. And so before you do that, if there’s anything else you’re craving, perhaps you’re, you know, maybe you’re not new to the practice and you want to practice a shoulder stand or something else, now would be a good time to do that. So I think that in Yoga Camp, you know, this is just, I’m merely your humble buddy and guide. I think you should use
this time to explore. Of course if you’re new to the practice and actually everyone
just be really mindful. Don’t skip out on the shavasana, even if it’s just for a moment or two, to completely release and relax. Eventually we’ll extend the legs out long. Take a nice refreshing
breath in as you exhale. Open your wings and release. So you might be playing right now. You might be doing a little freestyle. That’s awesome. So whether you’re in
shavasana and ready to rest or you’re freestyling, I want to thank you for
sharing your practice. And I want to honor you and give you thumbs up for
showing up for yourself. Way to rock it out. I’ll see you tomorrow, Day 10. Namaste. (invigorating music)

100 thoughts on “Yoga Camp Day 9 – I Am Bold

  1. thanks Adriane for opening my mind about yoga. when I first participated in yoga, my first initial thought was to relieve my stress to get my period back. (just finally got back as well!!!!) But there is so much about yoga that is so refreshing for my body and my brain and I LOVE IT!

  2. I was so sore in my shoulders today (due to a lot of orchestra rehearsals) and i REALLY didn't feel bold at all… so I thought I would take it easy… and (un)surprisingly an inner calmness appeared, that kind that makes you feel serene and bold! So thank you Adriene for saving my day (and many other days too)!

  3. Hi, its been 8 days since i am doing yoga camp.. its great and totally love it but now i have severe pain in my neck. what should i do?

  4. I do all of my practices in my backyard on my yoga mat. There were very strong winds the whole day but I really didn't want to miss out, so I decided to embrace the wind; use it to check how grounded I am in my foundation.

    I am bold… like the wind.

  5. Thanks Adriene for this great Yoga Camp! I decided I want to make changes in my life and thought I would begin with yoga camp and in just 8 days I'm feeling quite a difference already 😀 You're awesome

  6. I started this yoga camp again November 1st and this happened to be the video for the day after the election. It was perfect, and exactly what my spirit needed. Thank you.

  7. Congrats your classes are superb. I really feel motivated every morning, but sometimes , you talk a looooooooot! Haha . In a good way.

  8. I love your style of guidance, keeping it real and not making us non yogis feel out of sorts, very welcoming indeed. I've been nursing a virus of sorts and had been feeling better but today's practice has me feeling a little queasy in my stomach, not sure if it is recovery from the virus or negativity leaving the body. Any thoughts?

  9. Almost didn't show up for myself today, but I gave everything and everyone else my time, I pushed hard not to shortchange myself. So glad that I didn't. Namaste 🙏

  10. I have my big GRE exam today to get into graduate school and I planned my whole morning around having time for this yoga and it was honestly exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me feel bold and empowered today.

  11. I love the way you teach, so free and easygoing! I never feel pressured to push myself too far in your lessons. I find myself becoming more and more mindful of my current limits. Thank you! x x

  12. Great class Adrienne … yogi life… I promise myself to do yoga daily for my mind n body wellness 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃🤗

  13. My partner Olivia and I just completed day 9 yoga camp – yoga with Adriene. Adriene, we love your style and sense of humour, and we think you have humour like us. I loved today´s workout and the thoughtfulness that went into making this video! I am learning so much about myself and the world around me through your life-changing yoga practice. I added your ´yoga for sciatica´ before today´s video for an extra boost to my sore sciatic nerve and I get a lot out of your mindfulness practice. I am SO looking forward to the next day. Cheers! ~ Namasté, Zhem

  14. My first new years alone in my room after watching a movie with mom and I decided to yoga with you through to the new year, BOLDLY… thank you adriene… second time on yoga camp. Been following your videos for 5 months now almost every day and you've really helped me through a lot. I thank you endlessly and have spread the word… love warmth and hugs from india 🙂 hope you have a wonderful new year… look forward to your 'TRUE' course

  15. Love me some Adriene! I love Yoga in and of itself, but you make it all that much more enjoyable! Can't get enough so please don't ever quit…keep it coming forever & ever 🙂 I do like the suggestion of a minute or 2 of music at the end so we can rest in savasana without having to stop the next video from playing.

  16. I have been on a 30 day yoga journey and through the two practices that I did today I was able to say "I am Brave" & "I am Bold". Both of these practices made me feel strong and alive. I can not say thank you enough for all that I have learned in this last month. Tomorrow is day 30 (of True) and I have stuck with it since day 1! I am feeling very blessed to have found Adriene!

  17. Loved this. I recall a comment from Camp Day 2-ish where you said Downward Dog was a "resting position" or would become one. That statement has not left my mind and now as I go through camp I check in to see if it is getting easier and more like resting instead of working – and it is! Also I don't know what magic you have but I look forward to yoga every night and the practices always fly by and I don't feel strained doing it, but I feel the difference in my body afterwards and the following day. Amazing.

  18. I had a very busy weekend and could not get to the mat. I felt so tired today so this was a struggle but I got through and felt better afterwards!!!

  19. Ok, so is it normal to not be able to do happy baby's pose? I haven't seen anyone mentioning it as a difficult pose but I am reaaaally struggling with it! I mean, my back just stays bent, my legs won't even come close and I just end up falling to one side or the other.. what's wrong with me!

  20. This is my 2nd time doing yoga camp (the 1st time was last fall). On day 9, I can already feel a difference in my body: more awareness, more care in how I move. Adriene, you are amazing! Namaste!

  21. I’m doing this one today which is my birthday 🎂 love it a lot I am bold on my birthday 🙂

  22. I like taking a few minutes after, myself, to do planks and/or a few minutes of meditation/breathing exercises. I find my meditation comes much more easily after yoga (who'da thunk!) <3 namaste

  23. This is my second time doing a 30 day (I started with 30 days of yoga) and I absolutely love it. Although, I'm doing yoga at about 11pm so it's ending my day rather than starting it. But, I'm committed and loving how it makes me feel when I'm done. Thank you for giving me the confidence to be bold.

  24. Really loved this video! I was feeling down the past few days because it's been cloudy and cold, so this significantly lifted my spirits!

    P.S. The curvature or "hunchback" term you mentioned is called kyphosis. And with the pelvis it's lordosis. 👉

  25. Thank you Adriene! I did Revolution on January and have continued through your program on February. Unfortunately I took a huge break from yoga and I don't know why. Lately I wasn't feeling well and have remembered how it felt like doing yoga with your videos. I am back on track with this September's program. I am feeling as if I am finding myself again. Stepping away from stress and anxiety. Anyway I just wanted to thank you for being here and doing your thing. I am bold!

  26. wow i felt that heat in the shoulders, kind of bittersweet sensation as my shoulders are pretty much THAT sensitive ;;)) place in my body so i just keep it up with the flow and tried to do it with finess and with a BIG SMILE on my face hhhhh and it worked you know why ?? coz' i am bold :))))

  27. I have to be honest, a lot of times I say namaste I find it hard to feel the meaning. I think it but I don't always connect to it. Today I really did and it was a totally different experience!

  28. As a recovering drug addict, I decided to have a coffee today and as nice as it was, the caffeine was overwhelming and my anxiety kicked in. A critical voice within started up and began bullying me inside my own head. This is my anxiety. It was awful and the only thing I knew was that this yoga practice could help me. And it did! Within a few minutes , it was gone and I could breathe again.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to make this and for sharing your beautiful light with the world. You are so loved…. Namaste…x

  29. I love Adrienne so much but when I start these camp sessions so early in morning I wish there was less conversation and just more direction then quietness.

  30. Would love slightly longer Savasannas in the next 30days of yoga if possible!! Good for all to find stillness 🙂 thank you so much for all you do xxx

  31. For the first time I managed to do the warrior poses with eyes closed without losing balance and without taking a rest between the pauses. I am practising boldness!

  32. As I do this practice here in Ohio we are experiencing a polar vortex. So, my mantra today is… Im cold, Im old, and Im bold. 😁 Practice #130 done!

  33. This was great today. All the Yummyness and the funnyness. All the nice blood flowing wonderfulness. My parents used to say " hot and heavy " heyo ! and that pause you did made me giggle in memory. Love ya A, love you all here! Namaste Today! 2019 baby!

  34. Thank you, Adrienne, for helping me start my day with peace. BOLD is what I need to be today. Thank you for sharing your practice in such a humble, kind way…easy enough for those of us who may not be as “stretchy” as others. I appreciate you and your soul.

  35. Good to feel the intensity & to be reminded to expense the posture rather than on creating the shape – means so much more. B-)

  36. there was a thunderstorm while doing this session, perfect synchronicity with all the thunder and lightning during the warrior poses and then calming towards the end. opened the window, put my mat in front and felt like thor brewing up my own storm 🔨 😂⚡️

  37. I finely got it when you said ‘let your breath roll you like a wave’ or something like that. I finely felt like my breathe was moving me! Yeah!

  38. Before starting the practice, I felt super weak in energy. Now i feel revitalized and refreshed. Glad I stuck to it even when it got hard. it's because I AM BOLD haha

  39. today I feel sad, confused and a bit angry because of something that I've found out this morning unexpectedly. thanks to this practice, I'm feeling better now. Namaste🙏🏻

  40. I put a pot of Adriene's Yogi Tea on the stove while I did this video. Can't wait to try it, the whole time I was working out the smell of the tea kept washing over me. Thanks Adriene for another wonderful practice (and your tea recipe!) <3
