7 Min Meditation to Start Your Day | Yoga With Adriene

– Hi everyone and
welcome to Yoga With Adriene. I’m Adriene and this
is Benji and we have a super simple, super sweet
mindfulness meditation to help you start your day. So grab a blanket or a
pillow to sit on if you like and let’s get started. (gentle music) Alright my darling friends,
Good Morning. We’re gonna begin in a nice, comfortable seated
position of your choice. So you can come onto the ground, sit on a pillow or
a blanket or a towel. You can also do this sitting
up nice and tall at the edge of your couch or a chair. But we do want to come into a
position in which we can begin to sit up nice and
tall through the spine. And then begin to
relax your shoulders. Settle in and wherever the hands
fall naturally, embrace that. So explore what
feels good today, palms face up,
palms close in to your center. Maybe hands
together in your lap. Maybe you take a Mudra. So just start to
listen to you body. This is gonna be important
as we set ourselves up to have an awesome day. Present with what is,
open-minded, available for whatever
the universe has in store. Take a moment to begin to notice
your breath and as you do that, soften your gaze
or close your eyes. So we’re sitting up tall. We’re closing the eyes despite maybe feeling a
little sleepy, don’t worry. And we’re gently
beginning to deepen the breath. And as you’re ready,
nice and slow, you’re gonna drop
your chin to your chest. And then lift your
nose up towards the sky. Slow and steady.
Dropping the chin. And then nose to the heavens. Start to sync up with nice,
full, conscious breaths. Nodding the head. And then bring it back to center
stillness and you’re just gonna take it in the opposite
direction now, side to side. (clears throat)
Excuse me. Taking your nose to
the left and to the right. Nice and easy. And come back to center. Reset, sit up nice and tall. Close your eyes
or soften your gaze. You’re gonna take your
hands now to your belly. Just nice, gentle
hand to belly connection. Begin to breathe
downward into your hands. Nice, full, conscious breath in. Belly expands. Nice, mindful, slow exhalation. Navel draws in. Then keep the hands there or
you can replace them back to your knees or you thighs. Whatever feels best
this morning, today. But continue the
full diaphragmatic breath. Waking up with each inhale and surrendering
with each exhale. See if you can allow
this conscious breathing to affect your mood,
to affect this posture. Make adjustments as needed. But then each time you do
mindfully return to the sound of your breath, to the
quality of your breath. Soften through the skin
of the face and the jaw. Just be present here in the moment. Then remember how you move
matters so pay attention to the way in which you slowly
draw your palms together. Anjuli Mudra. A gentle, reverent bow
of head to heart here and an opportunity for you to set an
intention for your day. It can be a sentence,
it can be a quality. Something to be conscious of. Not something
on your to-do list but a sensation, an energy, an intention
that you can move with throughout the
rest of your day. Then breathe a little deeper,
more fully and repeat your intention and if
you can’t settle on one, simply choose love. I choose love. Whatever came up today,
embrace it fully. Take a deep breath in. Then a long breath out. Once more,
inhale lots of love in. And exhale lots of love out. Slowly release the hands. Flutter your eyelashes open. Tap into a little inner smile
and have an amazing day. Namaste. (gentle music)


  1. Direct your energy to assist you in manifesting what it is you want to both gain and contribute to the world.

    Taking time to slow down and be still will reunite you with your intentions, dear one.

    This week’s free video is flying in to help.

    Think you don’t have the time? Think again.

    Take this 7 minutes (in heaven) to slow down, be still and set intentions for an amazing day.

  2. Hi Adriene, I am brand new to yoga. I just wanted to ask, should this morning meditation be done before or after morning yoga stretches? And is it okay to do one after the other? Thank you 🙂

  3. Thank you adrienne. Yku have an amazing day too😁

  4. My mind felt like it was a little all over the place after I began my morning routine today. This short guided meditation was just what I needed to slow my thoughts down and breathe. Thank you.

  5. More of the guided meditation please

  6. Amezing

  14. THANK YOU ♡

  15. Amazing!

  16. I’ve never been one to actually feel anything from meditating but I set an alarm at night for sometime in the morning and for up to do this I didn’t expect much but I really feel refreshed and relaxed and prepared thank you

  17. I did this in a sunday morning, perfect to start my day off right. I been dealing with bad thoughts lately. Therefore my intention for today is to stay present with my thoughts and to be loving. A big thank you Adriene! ❤️❤️🌞

  18. Thank you so much. Im so happy I woke up n this was the first thing i did

  22. Second time I do this littl meditation and it made me feel awesome.. again 🙂


  24. Adriane,
    Your lessons have been amazingly helpful. My family has been going through a hard time and has been extremely stressful. While our love is growing exponentially our financial circumstances have had a lot of dead ends for resolution. My cortisol levels have been very high. I woke up yesterday and felt a vibration from the inside out. I made a plan to spend two hours at the gym. I went to stretch at the end and thought I'd use your full body stretch. I wasn't completely finished and tapped next for the next lesson and this came up. At the end you simply said "and have a nice day." Thank you for being there at the right time for me. Namaste

  25. Simply wonderful, i just love this!
    I do this every morning, thanku so much.

  26. This is the perfect length and great for night time as well as morning. Thank you!! I do this quick meditation when I'm on work travel and it is wonderful for relieving stress.

  27. Adriene, I keep coming back to this meditation so often. The way you speak in this video with the soothing music in the background is just so beautiful and comforting. I tried many other meditation aps and they're all nice and good, but you give me something extra. You really have your way of saying things that pull some strings in my soul and always make my time on the matt with you so full of emotions, and I love it. You are slowly helping me to regain the connection with my body that I lost because of so many things. I just wanted to say I'm thankfull and I appreciate the way you pass on your knowledge, it's just the best way for me. Always when I recommend your videos to my friends I say that you're my yoga instructor, even though just through youtube😂 Anyways, thank you, thank you, thank you. ❤️

  28. i love you adriene

  29. I do this every single day. It helps so much. Thank You! Lots of love!

  30. Wow You are a nice girl 🎆🎆

  31. I had a headache all day yesterday. When I went to bed, I began to think about my essay that's due in a couple of days, and stressing out about not being able to sleep. Then I remembered your queues to relax areas in which you're tense, and I realized I was grimacing and tensing my jaw. So I made a conscious effort to relax my face and my jaw. The pain didn't leave entirely, but it eased (and helped calm my mind) enough to where I was able to sleep. I wouldn't have thought to do that if it weren't for practicing with you nearly everyday and would probably be miserable right now (it's 7:50 the next morning). Thank you, Adriene! <3

  32. I just have to say that I love your energy! Your videos sets me in a really calm, peaceful place, and I’m so happy that you are on youtube (therefore available around the world).
    Lots of Love from Sweden!

  33. I try to do this every morning! I love it fast and refreshing ✨

  58. When I'm sitting in the position as in the video, my back hurts really badly and that affects my focus. Would it be the same effect if I sit on a couch or bed with a pillow behind me? Back hurting at times always affect my focus while meditating

  84. Doing this one for 3 months now.😀

  85. Brilliant start to my day, thank you

  86. Adriene! Thank you for this wonderful and brief meditation! The mornings are proving to be one of the best times for me to take time for me. Getting up earlier, before anyone else is really moving in my house, to yoga and meditate with you, has been such a blessing in every part of my body, mind and life. Sometimes I have time for both, sometimes there's only time for a quick 15 min yoga and then I gotta go! But having the variety of times for both yoga and meditation is awesome because it has made it easier for me to make it a daily part of my life. Keep 'em coming girl! Thank you for your humor, gentle kindness and the occasional Texas drawl 😉 and the continuous reminder for that inner smile <3 All love!

  87. I have a free lesson at school in the morning, I am doing this in the teachers' room. Got distracted a couple of times but still, it feels good 🤗 Namaste 🙏

  88. I realised during this that I was hanging onto a lot of anger from something that happened yesterday and it was not serving me, so I set the intention of letting go of that anger, and by he end of the meditation I was smiling again. Thank you for your generosity to all the people that you help.

  89. Namaste, everyone doing this. 🙂

  90. That was beautiful thank you

  91. Awesome ❤️
