100 Comments


– What’s up, everyone, and
welcome to Yoga with Adriene. I am Adriene and we are back in action, and I have a new voice. For all the new subscribers who are like, what are you talking about? I was out ’cause I had vocal surgery. We’ve also been shooting a lot of fun little projects for you and we have all kinds
of crazy moves going on. So we took a little break,
but now we’re back strong and I’ve missed you, I
miss the regular videos. It’s been great to be
working on other things, but this is really nice constant, that we have free yoga
videos every Wednesday, something new, something for everyone, so thank you for being here, thank you for watching this. Hopefully, you’re in the
mood for some fiery yoga. Today, we have a new practice in the Yoga for Weight Loss series. This is a very popular playlist. For me, all yoga is yoga
for weight loss in a way, because it’s all about
awareness and lovin’ yo’self. But today we kinda have
a little fiery practice with a focus on deep opening in the hips and some stretchy-stretch
in the hamstrings. Nice little core connect, and of course, some neck and shoulder love, so hop on your mat, let’s get started. And if this practice isn’t for you, be sure to scroll through the channel and find something that feels good. Let’s get started. (upbeat guitar music) Draw the palms together at the heart now. Interlace the fingertips
and press the palms forward up and back, keep
the shoulders relaxed. Again, getting used to moving
with the breath, inhale, reach the pinkies all the way up. Again, instead of kinda
panicking here and getting tired as each breath rolls on, see
if you can kind of integrate more awareness to different body parts. (tongue click) A-O. Playing with that, drawing in
of the navel and lifting up. Pressing into the heels. Letting the tailbone grow heavy. So if you’re kind of arching out here, you might tuck the pelvis, allow a little heaviness to set in, in
the base of the pelvis. Whoo, blood flow in
the opposite direction. Breathe one more big breath in here, reach, reach, reach, and then exhale. Break free, ahhh, great. Right arm on top, give
yourself a nice big hug. Inching the fingertips towards
the center of the back body, breathe in, lift your heart. Exhale, release, and
switch, left arm on top. Little self-love, little
self-care here in yoga practice. Yes, we’re here to trim and tone, but we can again do it
in a really mindful way that feels super awesome, so. Shake it out, and again we’ll inhale, reach the arms up and overhead. This time, as you exhale, take it all the way down
into a forward fold. Grab the elbows, rock
a little side to side, if that feels good. Bend your knees as
generously as you need to. Shake the head a little yes, a little no. And then we’ll release the arms. On an inhale, lift up
to flat back position. This can be with the palms
on the tops of the thighs, the shins, or fingertips on the mat, kinda more Ashtangi version. So, chances are, your
body knows what to do, but if you’re brand new to the practice, just consider a nice
long beautiful neck here and again, that lifting
up and in of the navel. So definitely engaging the belly here, engaging the abdominal wall. Wherever you are, take
one more big breath in, find length, and then use your exhale to find that forward fold again. Inhale, reach up towards the
sky, spread your fingertips, press into all four corners of the feet, might even lift the toes here. And exhale, hands to heart, heavy in the tailbone, nice
tucking of the pelvis here. Great, let’s have some fun. Soft knees, inhale, reach it up, fingertips kiss up and over head. Exhale, down you go. Stretching through the back
body by bending the knee. Inhale, halfway lift your
version, long, beautiful neck. And exhale, forward fold. Great, plant the palms
in line with the feet. Bend your knees again, as
generously as you need. Then we’ll step the right foot back into a nice, low lunge. Lower the right knee, find length in the torso and the heart. And again, begin to breathe through that right hip,
that right hip crease, the front of the leg,
breathe, breathe, breathe. Then draw a big rainbow with your center. So we’re gonna go up and over and back, coming on to the left heel. Gently tugging energy
through the left hip crease, but not really doing it in a way that feels like you’re kind of pushing, just gentle energetic tug. Go ahead and allow the weight of the head to round forward and
then we’ll slowly roll through the left foot, come
back to nice low lunge. Lifting the right knee
up, take a big breath in. Exhale, plant the palms, step
the left toes back to plank. Begin to pedal it out here,
find a little movement. Create a little bit of
energy in the upper body by pressing away from your yoga mat. And then we’ll step the right foot up into the lunge. Lower the left knee down. Front knee over front ankle and refine the little lift in the heart. Udi anabandha here drawing
the navel in and up. Staying connected through your center, breathing into the front
of the left hip crease. Breathing, breathing. And think up and over as you rock it back. Gently pulling back through
the right hip crease. Notice my right foot here, super alive, super flexed toes up towards the sky. And then rolling through that
right foot, plant the palms, lift the back knee up,
inhale, exhale, step to plank. Again, don’t panic here,
press away from your yoga mat. Puff up through the upper back body, pedal it out. Then lower the knees here if
you like or keep them lifted. Shift your weight forward and slowly lower all the way down. As you lower down, draw your
navel up towards your spine. Cool, inhale, cobra. Everyone press into the tops
of the feet, lift your heart. Big breath in here. And then exhale, we release. Curl the toes under, lift
your kneecaps one at a time. Stay engaged in the legs
as you press into the palms and lift back up to that top of a push-up. Big breath in, exhale
to downward-facing dog. Hips go up and back, we pedal it out here. Find what feels good, stretching
through the side body, super mindful of the hands as we press into all 10 knuckles firmly,
finding that yielding action we talk about in
the Foundations of Yoga, and then melting the heart back. If the heels don’t come
to the mat, who cares? In time they absolutely will. (breathing) Stick with your breath. Great, then we’ll slowly bend the knees and again to go for a nice slow walk up towards the front edge, take your time. Forward fold. On your next breath in, inhale, lift up halfway, long neck, exhale bow. Inhale, reach for the sky,
spread the fingertips, press into your foundation,
big, big stretch. And exhale, hands to heart. Great, we’re gonna pick up the right foot and cross it over the left here. Right hip’s gonna want
to come forward so you want to dial it back a little bit here and then maintain this
beautiful lift in the heart. Inhale, reach the arms up and over head, exhale down you go, pulling
the right hip crease back. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Super mindful of the hip creases here. We’re not just kind of dumping all our weight into that right foot,
but keeping an energetic lift up through the right hip crease just like we did in that runner stretch. Maybe you let the weight
of the head go here and find your breath. (breathing) Press into all four corners of the feet, slowly begin to roll it up. And we just do a little switch-a-roo here, pressing into the right
foot we step the left foot over so, again, this hip
crease is gonna wanna kind of come forward here so I’m
gonna keep it dialed back, pulling back through my left hip crease, really mindful as I lift my heart up. Think ballerina here, totally. And then reach the arms all the way up and over head, exhale down you go. (breathing) Relaxing the weight of
the head over, excuse me, if that feels good. And again, finding a new breath here. Letting the breath inspire your practice, letting the practice really
speak to your breath. It’s all connected and you
will forget to breathe deep and so we just make it about this constant return back to the breath. (breathing) Press firmly into all
four corners of the feet, find stability in the
knees so if you don’t press into your feet your knees
are kind of unstable here, believe it or not, even though it’s such a simple little
shape, so really press into your feet, engage all the muscles as you roll it up, up up,
and then we’ll unravel. Awesome, shake it out or pedal it out and then inhale, reach
back up towards the sky, full breath here, exhale, rain it down. Inhale, halfway lift,
awesome, exhale, forward fold. Plant the palms this
time, let’s give it a hop. Hop it back to plank, awesome, you did it! Slowly lower down, inhale, cobra. And exhale to all fours. If your’e working on
strengthening the wrists here, you might practice this
next thing on the fists. Okay, but don’t give up on your wrists. We really wanna show that we’re working nice and slow and mindful
to strengthen the wrist. We’re not just giving up on them and never strengthening
them or stretching them. We have fists are an option
here, fists and thumb’s a great option, stay aware in
your shoulders if you do that. Inhale, lift the right knee
up, begin to draw big circles. There’s gonna be a
tendency here to rush guys, so keep it nice and slow. So we’re opening up the hips,
great for the glutes here, but stay connected to that center, again drawing the navel
up and in here, rib cage, kind of hugging in,
big, big, slow circles. After you don’t need the video any more you can bring your gaze straight down and we’re opening up the hips again. Engaging the glute there. If you experience any pain or
a little cramp in your foot, play with kind of brightening
the toes, spreading them wide, we call this yogi-toes. And then reversing the
circle, using your breath, definitely working the
abdominal wall here too so stay connected, don’t
dump all your weight into your left palm, see
if you can press into both palms evenly, whoo! Press into the top of the left foot, one more here, you got
it, and then we release. Curl the toes under and take
a break off your wrists. Nice stretching of the soles of the feet as you catch your breath. (breathing) Same thing on the other
side, back to all fours. Press into the top of your right foot, press away from your yoga mat and begin to draw big, big circle
with the left knee. We’re strengthening the abdominal wall, we’re strengthening the
muscles of the back body here, get that beautiful back
you’ve always wanted, big, drawing big circles. I like to think of it like
carving lines through space. That kind of slows me down a little bit. Again, if pointing the
toe is kind of bringing a little cramp situation into your foot, you might try spreading the toes wide, still staying nice and bright. Reverse your circle if
you haven’t already. And again, resist the
urge to move super fast. (breathing) Awesome, do one more. And then we release, this time dropping the elbows where the palms were and walking the knees back, anna hathaasen, heart to earth pose,
stretching the shoulders, lower belly reaches towards
the tops of the thigh and we relax in a nice
restorative stretch here. Really opening up through
the shoulders though, we might rock the hips a
little gently back and forth. (breathing) And you might even rock the forehead a little back and forth. (breathing) Awesome, slowly coming back to all fours, awesome work everyone! Come back to that plank position. Don’t panic, you got the strength. Your mind gives up a lot
faster than your body so you got it going on,
and again, you can always come to a nice half plank
whenever you need to, just kind of working on alignment and building strength slowly but surely. In plank we’re gonna
really reach the heels towards the back edge of the mat. Inhale in, lift your
right leg up high, exhale. Bring your right knee over
towards your left elbow. Keep the right foot bright,
pointed, or toes spread. Inhale, exhale, release, back to plank. Inhale, lift the left
leg up high, you got it. Exhale, bring the left knee
over towards the right elbow. Brightness in the left foot, inhale, exhale back to center, inhale,
lift the right leg up high, exhale, cross it over, only three of these on each side, you got it. Back to plank, here we go,
crossing over with the left knee, engage that lower belly
and one more on each side, you totally have it, here we go. Lift the right leg over to the left. Back to plank and one more, here we go. Back to plank, awesome. From here we’re going
to go to downward dog. Oh, never felt so good, beautiful. Take a couple breaths in downward dog. Believe it or not, our resting
pose here, in this practice. You can always come to a nice child’s pose instead and take a load
off those hands and wrists. So to each his own here. Three to five breaths. (breathing) Then if you’re in child’s
pose, take your time, but eventually we’ll come
up to downward-facing dog and then from there either
hop towards the front edge of the mat or repeat that nice, slow walk towards the front end. Take a forward fold. Draw your nose towards your navel and then on your next
inhale we’ll lift flat back. Nice, beautiful long neck
and exhale forward fold. Inhale, reach up towards the sky, spread your fingertips and
exhale, hands to heart. Awesome, inhale, reach up. Exhale, diving forward, enjoy this move. Inhale, flat back, lengthen, exhale bow. Inhale, step or hop it
back to plank, you got it! Exhale, slowly lower down to cobra or upward-facing dog. Big breath in, on your
exhale, downward dog. Picking up the pace a little
bit, just do your best here. Inhale, right leg lifts up high, exhale, draw a big rainbow up and over, right knee to right
elbow, gaze is forward. Inhale, three-legged dog, toes down. Exhale, crossing over
towards the left knee. Breathe into your right
hip, engage your core. Inhale, three-legged dog,
last one on this side, you got it, nose to knee. Give your knee a little Eskimo kiss here. And then step it up into your lunge. Pivot on the back foot, we’re gonna open up to a nice warrior two. Fingertips spread left to right. We stack head over
heart, heart over pelvis. Inhale in and exhale,
sink a little bit deeper. Give your arms a break and
release behind the tail. Open your chest as you lift your heart up. Humble warrior, we inhale in, exhale. Begin to pull back with
the right hip crease. Remember this action of pulling
back with right hip crease and remember the udi
anabandha, so join the navel up and in and then take
your time getting there. Maybe keep your back, your spine, nice and long, as long as possible. Maybe pausing right above
the thigh bone line here just to make sure we’re not collapsing and then maybe you continue the journey all the way down. Again, gentle tugging back
in the right hip crease, supercharged through my left inner thigh, pressing into the knife
edge of that left foot. Breath deeply here my friends. Relax the weight of the
head over, humble warrior, strong, fierce pose. And then press into all
four corners of the feet. Don’t rush this as you
slowly rise up, super strong. We’ll go ahead and straighten
through that front leg, yay! And release the arms, go
ahead and reach them up, let the blood flow in
the opposite direction, as you dial your heart to the
side, turn the right toes in, left toes out and we’ll come to that warrior two on the other side. Pull the pinkies back and energy radiates, strong legs here guys. We don’t have a lot of standing poses, we don’t have a lot of poses today, so really embody each one
with everything you have. Moving with your breath. Interlacing fingertips behind the tail, whenever you’re ready. Let me get rid of this. And maybe you bring the
opposite hand on top this time, so maybe the left thumb was on top so you bring the right
thumb on top this time. Just playing around. And we open up through the chest. Inhale in, whenever you’re
ready, nice flat back, as you begin to pull
the left hip crease back and find your humble warrior. So as the heart begins to melt down, I begin to charge through
my back leg strong. Really engaged through
the right inner thigh. Maybe I take it all the way down, ooh, I’m super sore. And using your breath, to stay alive and engaged. (breathing) Pulling the left hip
crease back, you got it! To come out we’re gonna move at a nice, slow constant rate of speed,
strong legs, strong legs, don’t give up! Then break free, reach your fingertips up. Ah, blood flows in the
opposite direction, awesome. We’ll straighten through that front leg. Great, we’re gonna come all the way back to the front of
our mat, nice and easy, just dialing the toes all the way back. Go ahead and come back to your lunge. We’ll plant the palms,
slide the right toes back, and take a vinyasa. To each his own here,
maybe you take a break. Awesome everyone, together. Drop the right heel, inhale,
lift the left leg up high, here we go! Think up and over, big, big
arcs with your left knee, reaching up and over to kiss left elbow, gaze is forward, strong center. Gorgeous, three-legged dog, take it up. And, crossing over, here we
go, left knee to right elbow. Gaze is forward, three-legged
dog and last one, nose to knee, rounding it all in, give yourself a little Eskimo kiss here and then we’ll step it up into our lunge. Great, here we go, skindasyna. Inhale, heart radiates forward, exhale, I’m gonna slowly
shift my weight up and over, pivot on the back foot,
coming into this kind of, I always call this like
a little ninja move here. If the hips are really
tight, we may actually lift the right heel up, with
the legs and the ankles. This is going to be step one. Using the fingertips on the
mat, really flexing through the extended leg. Maybe you’re able to stay
on your right foot here. And maybe you’re able to bring the palms together at the heart. Wherever you are, breathe deep. And then check it out. I’m gonna slowly, using
that udi anabandha, that core lock, I’m gonna lift myself up. And I’m gonna come all the way
back to the front of my mat onto my left foot again, left
heel can come up, no prob. Or maybe I’m gonna stay here. Maybe I’d bring the palms
together with heart, maybe you’re like, “What
in the world, Adriene?” And you’re like, okay, I’ll
save that for another rainy day. So definitely getting into
some deep hip work here, but also doing it in a
kind of way that’s… I don’t want you to take it too seriously. I want us to be mindful
of action and alignment but also, you know,
don’t sweat it too much. ‘Kay, here we go. Using the core center engagement, that core lock, to come back
through, so that’s gonna protect us and just checking
it out on either side. Maybe you’re here, maybe you’re here, and then one more time, back
to the front of your mat. All the way up and over,
using the core lock, scandasa to the other side (breathing). Then we’ll slowly pivot on the left foot. Come back to the front
edge of the mat by bringing the right foot back to our lunge, then stepping it up to
the front, forward fold. Great, inhale, halfway
lift, exhale bow, last time, we inhale reach all the
way up towards the sky, big, big stretch, clap the palms together, up and overhead, gynamaste, and then exhale hands to heart. Great, inhale, reach it up. Exhale down we go. Heel, toe, heel, toe the
feet as wide as your mat. This time we’re coming
into a nice low squat so the toes might spill off
the edge of your mat here. We’ll use your fingertips
to guide yourself down. Again, the heels might not
stay down here and that’s okay. We use this little froggy
pose to create space. Maybe the heels do come down to the mat, in which case maybe you
bring the palms together and use this posture to
find a little push and pull, what our hatha yoga is all about. Build strength with a
little resistance here as we press the arms into the legs and squeeze the legs into the arms. Lengthen, lift up through your heart. If crow, or bicasana, is in your practice, you might use this moment now to, maybe, give it a whirl. Bringing the palms to the
earth, walking the toes in. That same core lock, we
draw the energy in and up in the belly, we don’t
through the upper back body. It’s all about the energy
here, it’s really not about the arm muscles. As we inhale in, integrity,
integrity, I walk the knees as close as I can up to my armpits and I begin to rock forward. Notice how my gaze, my gistre, is forward. Focus out, out, out. Maybe this is my crow practice today. Maybe I lift one foot. Maybe I lift the other and maybe I fly. And maybe not, maybe I
save it for another day. Using the breath. Pulling my hip creases up
and back, navel in and up. Reach, reach, reach with
the crown of the head. After a little bit of crow practice, we’ll meet our friends
back in our yogic squat. Gently we’ll release. Coming to a nice, extended leg here, poshi mo tinasina,
reaching through the heels, finding that siponde heel connection and then reaching arms up and overhead. Whenever you’re ready, take
it into a nice forward fold, consider pulling the hip creases back. Knees can bend as generously
as you need them to here. We’re aiming to get the belly
on to the top of the thigh but not at the cost of
being able to breathe and, maybe, snapping a hamstring. So just take your time, bend your knees basically is what I’m saying. Nice brightness in the feet here, eventually we’ll get to here or here, wherever we want to be,
wherever we need to be. But be where you are now. (breathing) Couple more breaths here, let it go. And then we’ll slowly roll it up. Great! Go ahead and lift that
right knee all the way up. We’re gonna take just a little twist here, hugging right knee in. Careful not to lean into it
here, but sit up nice and tall. Inhale in, exhale, journey
into your twist again. Pulling the right hip crease back. Making sure to keep the
head over the heart, the heart over the pelvis. Inhale in, exhale back to center. Catch your right foot, we’re gonna go for a little rock here in the hip. You might be able to bring the outer edge of your right foot to the elbow crease and you might be like, “Ha ha! Never.” Just grab your foot here and
we’re gonna go for a little sway back and forth and
then front and back as well. Now would be a good
time if you were wanting to work on an arm balance or something like figure
eight or something, maybe one of these, you
could practice that here and now, working on that, but
we’ll do that another day, officially, just giving you
options for those of you with a practice already rolling. Then we’ll release the right
leg, lift the left leg up high. Also, if you’re interested
in stuff like that you should check out our programs
at yogawithadriene.com or findwhatfeelsgood.com
’cause we’re able to go into kind of more depth with
some more challenging things just kinda nice, but I
want to make sure everyone feels taken care of here
on Youtube and in time we’ll add more and more. Feel free to veer off if you need to. Coming into your twist on the other side. Sticking with your breath. And then same thing, just nice and easy. Rocking, the hip front
to back, left to right. We’ll do a tutorial on
that figure eight pose. That’s an arm balance that
everyone wants to try. And then releasing that leg, ending with a little bit of core, of course. It’s not long so it’s gonna go quick. Let’s really give it our all. So we’re going to come
onto flat back position. Lift the shins up parallel to the ceiling. Interlace the fingertips and
bring them behind the head. Okay my friends, you got this! Extend your thumbs. Go ahead and open up
through the armpit chest. Tilt your pelvis so your
tailbone scooping up towards the sky so your lower back comes in nice and flush with the mat. Here we go, inhale in. I’m gonna exhale, lift my
head, my neck, my shoulders. I’m gonna cross right elbow to left knee and tap my right toe down. So if you feel too crunched here, you can even bring fingertips to temples. Then I’m gonna inhale to center. Exhale, tap the left toe
down, cross left elbow over. This is just a yogi bicycle variation. Inhale, really targeting lower belly, tap. Inhale to center, exhale tap and cross. Inhale to center, exhale tap
and cross, keep it going. (breathing) Resist the urge to speed up. Nice, slow controlled movement. (breathing) Keep it going. Almost done, keep it going. And one more on each side. Then both legs up, reach, pulse for 10. And then we release everything
down sup da baddacanasa. This should feel awesome. Bring the hands to the belly,
give yourself a little pet. Soles of the feet together,
knees nice and wide. We begin to cool it down,
awesome work my friends! Super, super awesome, don’t
forget about your breath, even here, use it to kind
of calm the nervous system and restore the body for
the rest of your day. We take a rest here, opening the arms out, nice and easy, crawling the
shoulder blades underneath you. Ending in a restorative posture today, however your lower back
might need a little bit of love so maybe taking a
moment to hug the knees in, maybe a happy baby,
maybe a reclined twist. Or maybe you’re all set to
just stay here in badacanasa. A little moment to do a
little mindful freestyle and then maybe meet us back
here whenever you’re ready. You can close the eyes when you arrive. And we just take a second
to honor this moment of stillness and this restorative moment as totally important as
our strengthening practice. For in yoga we aim to find
balance in all things. That’s how we can create a
sustainable, healthy life. That’s how we can create
a workout routine that is sustainable and healthy. Stay here if you like, opening the hips out a little bit longer or
begin to slide the right foot out, long windshield wiper-ing
the toes back and forth. And then the left, out
long, back and forth, back and forth. Awesome work today my friends. Give yourself a little rest,
as long as time allows, if you have to boogie,
I thank you for sharing your practice with me and
I’ll see you next time. Namaste. (upbeat guitar music)

100 thoughts on “Yoga For Weight Loss – Hips & Hamstrings – Yoga With Adriene

  1. YOGA FOR WEIGHT LOSS – and HAPPINESS. Transformation is not about becoming something you are not. It is about coming back to your true self. That is the beauty of Yoga and integrating the principles of yoga into your work out. All yoga is yoga for weight loss –  in a way – because it's all about awareness and loving yourself. This yoga practice gets FIERY with a focus on opening in the hips, stretching the hamstrings, a core connect… and some neck and shoulder love. This was a big request from the kula (community) so we are back after a month long break with a nice full sequence to connect your mind your soul and to work that body! Be mindful, move with your breath and enjoy! #yoga   #yogaforhealth   #yogawithadriene   #fwfg   #findwhatfeelsgood   #yogi   #yogaposes   #yogapractice  

  2. Nice one, enjoyed it, just have one note: you keep on saying and even start the first move by saying: don't panic… why would I panic? In my experience, by telling people not to panic, they will more easily panic. It's like saying: don't look at the mess… people will most definitely look at the mess 😉

  3. A excellent pratice too for the hips, the buttocks of course. A greater flexibility for me. It feels good for each part of the body. Always a pleasure. Thanks.

  4. I don't know if it was the pace or if I'm getting stronger but I actually managed to hold bakasana for a few moments today

  5. A very good pratice as usual. I feel my muscles stretched very well and i like very much position of the dancer. 😉 It was very good. Thanks again and again.

  6. Is a bit missing? It went from the intro to Adriene standing semingly in the middle of the practice! A shame as I wanted to give this one a go 🙁

  7. Wowee Adriene, that was a super yummy practice ! I feel so alive ! A great workout for legs arms shoulders hips, all parts, and at the same time being kind and mindful, feeling no pain, a real core strengthener. Perfect to start our second weekend of CATCH A WAVE. Surfing 🏄‍♀️ tomorrow 😃👍🏻🧘🏼‍♀️🙏💞namaste !

  8. So grateful to say that I just did my first outdoor yoga practice with this video. Beautiful in my backyard and so filled with the air around me. I found it a bit difficult to really get my lower back flush to the ground with natures bumps and dips in the grass but so thankful to have a gentle earth around me to mould me into its shape! Thank you so so so so much Adriene for being one of the best parts of my day. <3 Namaste <3

  9. I always see 'yoga for weightloss' and panic. I need to lose a few lbs but worry I can't do these videos because they're… Difficult?! It's my mind set, I know! I mean, I do these videos often and get through them! Silly brain. That being said, I've been feeling progress in strength this month until today where I struggled with those three legged dogs… I'm trying to remind myself that I still did the. I still felt I did better than I would have done a month ago. And I spent a few hours doing DIY today so maybe that's why my arms are tired! 😂

  10. Did my first Crow!!!! Was able to hold it for a while. So, so proud of myself. Thank you Adriene!! ❤

  11. Is there something wrong with my computer? Every time I view this video it seems like it's starting part-way into the yoga. It shows her intro and jumps right to her basically mid-sentence with no usual "ok lets start at the top of our mats" like she usually does. What could be going on?

  12. When you said Yogi toes all I could think about was "well what are boo boo toes"? I definitely felt the burn again with today's yoga. Thank you Adriene!

  13. Great practice , I can't believe how much stronger I am , although still kicked me in the but , holidays in a week so a week of ywa , weight loss series , thankyou 🙏 💕

  14. Good morning Adriene, how are you?
    Thank you. Every day with you is Amazing and Wonderful.
    😊😘❤️

  15. Perfect practice , countdown to holidays so on 3rd day of ywa weight loss playlist and see the difference already thankyou 🙏 💕

  16. Hi Adriene! I caught the part where you talked about having surgery on your vocals. I'm about to have a tonsillectomy, and was wondering if you have any yogi tips on recovery. I hear as an adult it's brutal, but trying to remain positive. Thanks, talk soon!

  17. i’ve been dealing with some pain in my right hip the last week a half or so from my workout routine and oh my gosh this actually relieved a lot of that discomfort. Will definitely be returning to this video for the next couple of days! Thank you, Adriene!

  18. "dont sweat over it" lol I have litterally dripped all along this practice, watching drops hitting my mat in forward fold 😉 it is heat wave here in South of France 😉

  19. You won´t believe it Adriene! I am 1,84 cmts long and weight 102 kilos but I fixed the Crow Practice!!
    (I´m the guy who likes your singing, by the way 🙂

  21. This is my go to video whenever my pelvic floor feels overly tight. What a lifesaver you are, Adriene. A big namaste.

  22. Adriene, I have been practising with you on and off for over 2 years now. I love your honest weirdness, how connected you are with yourself and how spontaneous your bursts of laughter or singing is. It reminds me of the natural factor that should always be a huge part of our practice and daily life. I am on a very intense spiritual journey right now and this practice made me cry a lot healing unsolved love issues from the past. I burst into cry and then reminding myself 'Find what feels good' I REALLY did, giving myself lots of love. THANK YOUUUU you are such a cool person and a spirit xxx

  23. What an amazing way of starting the weekend. Thank you so much Adriene! 😊 Y'all have an amazing weekend.

  24. Hello Adriene! I don't know how to reach you but I hope you'd see this. I'm just wondering if hip opening yogas like this actually broadens your hips? Appreciate your response. Thanks

  25. Very complete yoga session! Even trying it out several years later. This is great if you are in need of a workout that kicks in right away. Really loved it! Thank you, Adriene!

  26. Today its September 29th 2018. Happy Birthday my dear Adriene, thank you for everything you have given me. I wish for you a long and happy life full of love and health….

  27. Today I floated in places I used to crash into the ground, sure, I struggled in similar places as last time I did this but I'm progressing. Mostly in my mind : I've finally found my namaste vibes. Every time I bring my hands together I reset and remind myself to be my best version in the here and now and boy, oh, boy… What a difference!!

  28. I wanted to finish out September's calendar, this practice was the only one I'd not managed to do. Quite challenging but I did it! I'm definitely feeling more connected at the end of this month. Thank you Adriene xx

  29. How do I get over my fear of feeling bruisy from crow?? It's quite a different sensation from other positions in yoga and doesn't seem to jive with those other feelings. Inspiration? Insight?

  30. Wow, Adriene, I didn't know you had vocal surgery. Your voice sounds great in all your videos. I wonder what the story behind that is ….. These videos are a really important part of my daily life right now. Thank you, again.

  31. Really, really needed this today. Thank you so much for such a great practice. My forward fold has my knees all the way bent, can't wait to do this again and again to see positive growth : )

  32. Thank you Adriene for another nice practice💗 I've been sick, so today's practice didn't look or feel the absolute best. However in the room where I was practicing, there's a mirror on the wall. On the three-legit dog I turned my head to see my leg thinking something negative like "Do I even wanna see my bent leg" but then I saw my leg and it was straighter and higher than before! Made me so grateful and joyful, like a lil reminder from the universe of patience🤩😉😂

  33. Finished dedicate and now I’m back to trying all your other videos. This is one of my favorites. I love the little intro music you use for these 🙂

  34. Thanks for a great start to my work week! My hips are super tight (thank you genetics), so I’ll definitely return to this. ☮️

  35. Hi lovely humans! I tried something new today–doing the practice with no sound. Definitely had it's roses and thorns. Thorns being that I usually do the practices following Adriene's voice and only glancing at the screen occasionally, so having to almost constantly look at the screen was a bit bothersome. The roses on the other hand were amazing! I really felt strong in things that I'm normally struggling in because I had no idea if I was doing it for a moment or a while, so I assumed I was going to do it for a long time and found that I could hold poses or flows longer. Moreover I could really listen and focus on my breathing and how my body felt in each pose, which felt instantly satisfying. I held crow for 8 seconds today-a new personal record!

    Challenge yourself to do something new whenever you see the opportunity! Great payoffs.

    Thank you to everyone whose comments inspire me as much as Adriene does.

    With love from China <3
    先自己爱
    (love yourself first)

  36. I love this flowing purposeful practice, a little challenging at times but I breathed through having to be mindful of my limitations with my arthritis. But you keep me strong Adriene with my daily practice and today we ended with some core work, always my favourite ! 🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏻‍♀️🙏💞

  37. OPEN day 20

    Following yesterday’s practice my hips feel even better, I felt two cracks and I felt the tension is gone. My movement is more fluid.
    Unfortunately I wont be joining FUEGO (and TRANQUILO as well) as my free trial already ended, and subscribing isn’t something I can do at the moment. The youtube stuff is already more than enough and amazing as always.

    Namaste.

  38. I had not done one of this series in a long time and I am glad it showed up in the May 19 playlist. A bit of sweat and a general feel good moment ! Thanks Adriene.

  39. Wow it felt really good doing this today as Ive been doing gentle practices over last two days. Ready to have a sunny, fun day off in the UK thank you Adriene xxx

  40. Wow this was at the top of my feed so i went with it. Hit all the right spots! Thank you Adrienne for helping me find what feels good!

  41. Hey, I wish you wouldn’t add weight loss videos to your monthly calendars. I’m sad to hear you say stuff like ”all yoga is yoga for weight loss”, when a lot of people come to you to feel good in their bodies just as they are. Right now. Fat and staying fat.

  42. I missed the last 3 practices and this is the first one I skipped cause I had the flu really bad so I taught id catch up starting with this practice , man was I in for a surprise cause my flu left me really weak in the body and midway through the practice I almost blacked out no joke but I took a break had something to eat and then finished it.
    I did feel a lot more clear after this practice so thank you Adriene for a wonderful practice , I did meet my appropriate edge today, hope everyone did as well , Namaste Everyone 🙏💞

  43. Today for the Cancer eclipse 2019, I decided to do some yoga. After getting to badacanasana I fell asleep a little, woke up only enough to get to savasana. And woke up about 20 minutes later!! Loved this SO much!

  44. Yeah very nice practice, i enjoyed a lot and sweat some, thanks for sharing, always Its a pleasure to practice with you. Namaste

  45. I cant tell you how many times Ive come to this video because of my SI join and hip pain….this helps every time. Thank you so much for this sequence!!

  46. Hi, Adriene! Thank you so much for your accessible and fun yoga videos! <3
    In March, I followed your 30 days challenge and then I got so hooked that I did most of your April and May videos. Since June I have been following your Weight Loss series and I must admit – this one is my absolute favorite among ALL of those that I mentioned!

  47. Day 30 of Power, we’re almost done. This practice is a real workout for this senior yogi but I kept up and I made it. Wrists suffer a little in downward dog but breathing deep helps and remembering to position my hands as you said Adriene helps too. Humble Warrior was great and my favourite core at the end , loved that too. see you tomorrow for our last day of July 🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏻‍♀️🙏💞

  48. Good morning Adriene, how are You?
    Funny how no matter which Yoga I do with You, Always feels like the Best.😊😘❤️
    It is 81 degrees inside and could have put the AC but pushed through as didn’t want to stop or lose any of it.
    Thank You Adriene.
    Praying Everyone have a Wonderful, Peaceful, Cool Day😊❤️🌹

  49. It's the first time I really pay attention at others limbs than my arms and front leg during a humble warrior. The downfacing dog just after the work on the plank was so ggod, just like you said during the sequence : I sighed in relief! Litterally. So proud I didn't miss one day of this challenging power yoga month. See everybody on the mat tomorrow for practicing the last day all together. Namaste

  50. The editing on this one is a little choppy. But still a good routine. My hips are super tight so this has been helpful.

  51. “Be where you are now.” ☺️💗✨ After this practice, I tried to do a crow pose and even though I haven’t been practicing it on a regular basis I was surprised when I lifted up both feet off the ground for like 1 or 2 seconds 😍 Small achievement but a great foundation to make every yoga practice a healthy and fun journey! 🤩 Thank you so much Adriene and namaste 🙏🏻✨

  52. A great workout for my daughter and I, we feel our bodies have been stretched & pushed. Both feel gooooood. Thanks again Adriene 🙂 x

  53. Day 30 of power July ✌️ there was an urge to skip today. But how could I when I haven’t missed a day all month??

  54. @Adrienne, loved this practice but have a couple of questions. I felt like my hips wanted to lock on some of the movements. Any suggestions for that? Also, when doing the yoga bicycle my feet/arches were cramping. Again, any suggestions for that?

  55. Today was the first time I was ever able to catch some air in my crow pose and, all alone in my apartment, I yelled “holy shit!” I don’t know if that makes me a bad yogi, but I am still soaring.

  56. POWER day 30

    I gotta save this and come back again later, my hips and hamstrings are tight and stretching them makes practice much more enjoyable.

    Namaste.

  57. Wow honestly this month of Power was wonderful and I never taught I would say that, it went by so fast and I really had a wonderful experiences. Challenges and all it was great, don't get me wrong I got my butt kicked a lot but I learned to adjust and find ease nothing comes without a challenge and that's what makes it all the more worth it, thank u Adriene for these wonderful, teaching practices , much love and Namaste Everyone 💕💞💓💗💖❤💪🙏

  58. I really loved this one today! It let me see how much I've grown the past month like now I can kiss my knee. Every time at the end of the video I anticipated yogi bicycles now ah how I dislike them

  59. Oh holy hips, I needed that lovely focused stretch! Thank you, Adriene! And since we were groovin and movin through, kitties didn’t know how to interrupt, so they gave up and laid down😆 and I got uninterrupted yoga!! Thanks again, love your show!!

  60. How long are you supposed to hold the crow pose? Could do around 10 seconds but only with ultra focused breathing
