Day 26 | Earth Practice, Total Body Yoga | 30 Days of Yoga


What’s up, my friends? Welcome to 30 Days
of Yoga with Adriene. I’m Adriene, and it’s day 26. We have five more practices together.
You’re doing awesome. I’d love to hear how its going down below, after your practice,
when you’re feeling good, or maybe you’ve had a challenging day, either way. Let’s do
it together, right here, right now, day 26. Let’s go. Hey, friends. Today we’re going to begin flat
on our backs. Take a second to get settled in. And we will begin by smiling today and
finding a nice, deep breath in and a nice, long breath out. Hands can rest gently on
the belly here or at your sides. And we’re just going to take a couple more deep breaths.
So allow your breath to inspire a little organic movement in the body here today, whether it’s
pointing and flexing the feet, rocking on the heels, maybe spreading the fingertips,
checking in with the wrists; maybe you find a full body stretch here. Deep breathing,
deep breaths, a yawn. This is yoga, connecting breath to body, mind and heart, here resting
on the Earth, feeling supported. Take one more deep breath in. And then if your arms
are not up and overhead at this point, go ahead and inhale, reach the fingertips up.
We’re going to slowly release the backs of the hands to the mat or the Earth, and if
they don’t release, then that’s okay. That’s just a check-in point for you. So in time,
we’ll be able to release them. Breathe into the chest. Breathe into the heart. Let your
rib cage expand. And then exhale, let it go. Now move the breath down to a little more
of your mid-section, your lower ribs. Inhale in, feeling the chest, the lungs, mid-section
expand. Just play with the breath here and then exhale. And now we are going to inhale
in through the nose, fill both those areas plus the belly up with air. Here we go. Inhale,
deep breath. And exhale, let it go, belly falls. Let’s do one more just like that. Inhale,
filling the chest, lungs expand, belly rises, and on an exhale, we fall. Cool. From here, go ahead and bend the elbows.
Just let them relax a little bit. We’re going to walk the right heel and the left heel over
towards the bottom left corner of the mat. Cross the right ankle over the left, and then
we are going to press into the head and shoulders and shimmy towards the top left corner of
the mat. Inhale, reach the arms up and overhead. We’ll take the right hand to the left wrist,
and we stretch. So a little recap. Walking the heels towards the bottom left corner of
the mat, walking the head, the neck, the shoulders towards the top left corner. Then I’m going
to grab my left wrist with my right hand and find a long stretch of the right side body,
creating like a crescent moon shape here with the body. Take a deep breath in. Again, you
might play with that three-parts breath, breathing into the chest. The lungs, the rib cage expands
and then the belly rises. Yes, awesome. You can feel the skin of the body stretching with
that breath. And then exhale, release it back to center, nice and slow. Then we’ll walk
it to the other side. So you know what to do, and even if this is
new for you, just take your time. We walk the heels towards the right and then the head,
and then the shoulders, and then you can stay here or cross that left ankle over the right.
And we grab now the opposite wrist, so I’m grabbing the right. Oh, actually, I might
have done that wrong the first time. This time grab your left wrist with your right
hand. Hopefully I grabbed the right wrist with the left hand last time. If not, I’m
human! Very sorry. Inhale, breathe into the lungs. Fill the body with air. Let the chest,
the rib cage expand, and the belly rises with the deep breath in. Just play here with your
breath in your own time. And then release everything and walk it back to center. Awesome. Press the palms now down into the
earth by your hips, and hug those knees in one at a time. You might scoop the tailbone
up towards the sky a bit, letting the lower back become really flush with the mat, so
that lower back is stamping, moving my back down on the yoga mat as we squeeze the knees
up. And we know what to do here. Find a little rock and roll. Point and flex the feet. You
could give yourself a little massage if the muscles are sore. If the knees are sensitive,
or maybe you’ve gone through a knee injury or something in healing, give it a little
good ju-ju. Never underestimate the power of your energy, your thoughts, and of touch. Okay. Then from here, we’ll squeeze the knees
up towards the heart, relax the shoulders down, actively relax the shoulders, relax
the weight of the arms down. Peel the nose up to the knees. Take a couple breaths here.
Again, see if you can practice breathing into the torso, nice, full, deep breaths. Maybe
you don’t come all the way here. Maybe there’s lots of space. Just embrace where you are
today. For a deeper stretch, you might find a little resistance pressing the soles of
the feet into the fingers as you grab the outer edges. Just check out where it is today.
Everyone, be conscious of your shoulders. See if you can rotate the biceps up towards
the sky. Then look away from the video, if you aren’t already, and close your eyes for
one more breath cycle in and out here. Visualize space in between each vertebra. You say vertebra,
I say vertebrae. And then we gently release. Awesome. Come to a nice, reclined cobbler’s
pose here. So exploring all lines here with the support of the earth feels really good.
Check in with the breath, 3 parts breath. We breathe into the chest. The lungs, the
rib cage expands. The belly rises. Your hands can rise with that breath in. And then exhale,
it falls. Close your eyes. Two more breaths just like that. Awesome. Bring the fingertips now to the outer
edges of the leg. Hike your knees up. Bring them together. We’re going to cross the right
ankle over the left. Grab the outer edges of the feet. Thumbs are going to come into
the arches of the feet and we’re going to give ourselves just a little massage. Sweet
feet, maybe checking in with the tops of the feet too, honoring your feet here. So important.
Way more important than we, I think, remember. Our sweet feet, and honoring them, keeping
them healthy, happy. Nice, conscious footing is a great metaphor, I think, for life, so
that we can dance on them, so we can trek into the unknown, and so that we can stand
grounded, find balance. You get the picture, I think. Let’s rock and roll. Navel draws in, energetically,
and we begin to rock, front to back. Front to back, massaging the spine, maybe you’ll
find a place to hover here. And again, visualizing the spine here as you find a little back and
forth flexion. And when you feel satisfied, sit up nice and tall, sukhasana, the easy
pose. So here we are, day 26, and you might be like, “Girl, this is not an easy pose.”
So rather than just thinking about this as the easy pose, we’re just going to aim to
find ease here. So here in the homestretch, I think its important that whatever level
we’re working on in our practice, that we take a second to just kind of pull back. And
it’s great to challenge ourselves and to set goals, but also know that we always have this
place of home and ease to return to in between working towards our goals, those challenging
poses, those kind of fun poses. Just remember you always have this simple meditation pose
to connect to each day, to find simplicity and aim to find ease and stillness. So we’re
going to just take three nice, full breaths here, honoring just that, remembering that
this tool is here for us always and is essentially the foundation of our practice, also of our
meditation practice, which we can talk more about later. So close your eyes and find your
breath. Let’s take some neck circles here, continuing
with the breath, checking in with the neck and the shoulders here, finding what feels
good and taking the ease that we aim for in easy pose, sukhasana, with us as we dive forward
onto all fours. Here we go. Take a couple cat-cows here. Keep deepening the breath.
Let go of to-do lists. Let go of words unspoken. Let’s open ourselves up to something new here
in this kind of quick, yummy, full-body yoga practice today. So nice and easy, taking the
principles of finding ease into our next posture, good old downward facing dog. Curl the toes
under. Walk the palms forward. And nice and easy, with integrity, keep a nice awareness
on the torso so we’re not just dumping all of our weight into the earth as we lift the
hips up, but we’re keeping integrity, full body experience. You can open your eyes here,
look at your sweet legs, your sweet feet, as you paddle it out. How awesome it is to
be alive. Press into all ten knuckles. Breathe into the chest. The rib cage expands, the
belly fills, and exhale. Let it go. Great. Take it for a nice, slow walk up towards
the front edge. We’re going to hang here for a couple breaths, so feel free to bend the
knees generously. Again, find what feels good. Nice, conscious footing as the toes point
forward. We grab the elbows perhaps, rock a little side to side. Stick with your breath,
my friends. Breathe into the backs of the legs. Breathe into that back body. Nobody’s
knees should be locked here. In fact, nice generous bend is really great, I think. Then
inhale, slide the palms up past the ankles, past the shins, to the tops of the thighs.
Loop the shoulders, pull those elbows back, find your flat-back position today. This time
we’re going to take a second to turn to the left. It’s like a little performance art piece.
Hello. And I’m joking, but that’s what I love about yoga too, is just kind of getting into
my weird. People are always saying, “Thanks for keeping yoga weird,” and I’m like, “Is
that an Austen joke?” But really, I like it. No yoga robots. So what I’m doing here is I’m turning my right
ear to the ground, pulling my shoulders away, finding extension to the crown of the head.
Tuck your chin slightly to lengthen through the back and the neck. Then carve a line with
your nose through center and take it to the other side. So I’m having to work quite hard
here, pressing into all four corners of the feet, breathing into the backs of the legs,
drawing my navel up towards my spine, making sure that I’m tucking my tailbone just slightly
so my lower back is nice and long. Pull the elbows back like two little grasshopper legs.
Extend through the crown of the head. Tuck your chin slightly, and then exhale, release
back to center, and we’ll slide it down. Awesome, my friends. Plant your palms. Slide
the toes back one at a time, we’ll keep it nice and easy today, to plank and pedal it
out here. See if you can find a buoyancy. You might even bend the elbows a couple times.
Just make sure you’re not holding and waiting. Find a little bit of air underneath you. Find
your breath. And then when you’re ready, we’ll slowly lower all the way down to the belly.
Great. Press into the tops of the feet. Press into your pubic bone. Palms underneath the
shoulders, we find ease as we loop the shoulders. Pull those elbows back again, and inhale,
open your heart, cobra. Spread awareness through the palms. Create a full body experience here,
my friends, as once again, this time we’re going to keep the chin lifted as we turn towards
the left. Breathe into the right side of that neck. Pull your right shoulder away from your
right ear, and then through center, stay strong in the back, body to the left. Again, loop
that left shoulder back. Pull both elbows towards the back edge. Breathe in, and exhale,
back to center. Smile, and we release. Curl the toes under. Come to all fours. Great, everyone. So wrists underneath the
shoulders here, knees directly underneath the hips. I got a little allergy today. I’m
going to press into the tops of the feet strong. Notice that the toes are going out or coming
in. Draw them in line with the knees. Inhale, extend the right toes out long. Flex your
foot, right toes dialed down towards the earth. Now lift your right inner thigh up towards
the sky and breathe. Now drop your right rib cage, navel up, inhale. Send the left fingertips
forward. Exhale, nose to knee. Stay rooted through that back foot. Inhale, keep it nice
and slow, soft and easy. And exhale, reeling it in, nose to knee. One more inhale. Extend.
This time we’re going to hold. We’re going to bend the right knee, send it to the right
side of your mat. Let’s really charge through that right inner thigh. Then bend your left
elbow. Send it to the left side of your mat. Lift up through the left armpit chest. Breathe
here, one more breath, and then exhale, release. Awesome. Curl the toes under. Send those hip
bones back, and take a load off. Little yoga for the feet moment. Itch your nose. Find
some wrist circles. Smile. Fix yourself. Reconnect with your breath. Reconnecting with your breath,
reconnecting to yourself, connecting to you. Back to all fours we go. And same thing on
the other side. So really make sure you find that alignment first. And through practice,
that’s going to come as second nature, but at first, it can take quite some time, maybe
30 days, to really kind of turn on that inner mirror and reconnect and sometimes rewire,
right? Pressing into the foundation, inhale, send the left toes out, and dial the left
toes down towards the ground. Left inner thigh spirals up towards the sky. So this is going
to want to happen, and I’m going to dial the top of my left thigh bone down towards the
earth. Great. Find an evenness. You might even connect to that three-parts breath here.
And inhale, reaching the right fingertips forward. Plug that right shoulder in. Breathe.
Create space between the earth and you. Press into your foundation. Then we’re going to
light that fire, create strength by bending the left knee, just having a little fun here,
and drawing it over towards the left side of the mat. Your mind is strong, so stay positive,
keep with it. Lift your left inner thigh. Bend the right elbow towards the right. Keeping
it weird here, breathe, breathe, breathe. If you’re looking at the video, take your
gaze straight down here for one more breath. And then exhale, release. Awesome. Curl the
toes under, send it back, and same thing. It’s all you. Wrist circles, shoulder circles,
gentle twists. So again, here in the homestretch, really trying to empower you to find what
feels good and listen to your body, let your body talk and then to listen to it, and then
use the tools of yoga and pranayama to survey. All right, and then we’ll dive back forward
onto all fours. Walk the palms out just a bit, and then send those hipbones up and back.
Turn the two big toes in here, so those inner thighs are spiraling in and out towards the
back edge of your mat. Take three breaths here, downward facing dog. Fill your body
with air. Connect to yourself via the breath. What’s up today? Notice if you’re crashing
forward. See if you can press away from your palms. Send those heels down. They don’t even
have to come close to the mat, no biggie, just the energetic intention. One more breath
wherever you are, and then we slowly lower down. Awesome. Cross the left ankle over the
right. Slide on through. We’ll send it all the way back to flat-back position, and once
again, hug those sweet knees up towards the chest. Great. Hug the right knee, and send
the left leg all the way out. Deep breath in, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze. Press through
that left heel. On your deep breath out, open up through that right hip. So we’re going
to gently guide the right knee towards the right side of the mat. Bring the left palm
to the top of the left thigh bone. And then we have lots of options here. We can rotate
that right ankle one way and then the other. If we have flexibility, we might already begin
to grab the big toe, and open and extend this out long. Also if you have a strap or a tie
or anything at all that can be a little arm extension for you, this is great. I have this
nice wall here. But what I want to do is make sure I’m guiding this left hip, this left
buttock down, firming down through that left thigh bone. So guys, I’m here just to give you a place
to work towards, or I’m here even, or I’m here. Take one more breath, wherever you are,
and then use your exhale to gather it all, reel it back into center, so again, staying
connected in our transitions and then switching, nice and slow, left leg in. Squeeze that knee
up towards your heart. Send the right leg out. Full breaths here. On an exhale, we bring
the right hand to just remind ourselves to firm down through that right thigh bone as
we open up. So we tend to just kind of focus on “Oh, this asana is only about the hip,”
but really, this is about the full body, finding places to ground down, open, stay nice and
open through the chest and the heart. Again, you might grab that big toe here and open
up, or you might even just begin by grabbing the toe, or again, we might just be here,
holding. Also a strap or tie is always nice here, opening up through. So we have lots
of options. The most important thing here is to commit
to your breath, so lets take one more full breath in. And on an exhale, gather it all,
reel it all back into center. Grab the outer edges of your feet. Send the soles of the
feet up towards the sky, happy baby pose. Draw the tops of the thighs down, and lengthen
tailbone towards the back edge of your mat. Relax your shoulders. One more breath here.
Then we exhale, release. Slide both feet down. Inhale, reach the fingertips up and overhead.
Exhale, interlace the fingertips. Create a little pillow, a little hammock. Thumbs can
extend where you’re going to massage the neck here with the thumbs. So at this point, we’re
going to send our body towards shavasana, or we’re going to take again a second for
a little playtime, maybe planting the palms and coming into a shoulder stand, followed
by a fish pose, or maybe rolling all the way up for some wide-arm push ups, a little more
strength building today. Maybe you want to hold and plank or practice a crow, or maybe
you want a little more restorative; you could come to that supta baddha konasana. So this is a moment in time where we’re either
connecting to our current goals or challenges or just exploring the dance of yoga a little
more. Obviously, really be mindful. Don’t try to learn something new in this playtime
right before shavasana. You might save that. But I do want to offer a little moment now
just to ask, “What else do I need in the body and how can I fulfill that?” We are going
to continue doing that. So for me, it’s keeping the thumbs extended and massaging my tired,
sore head and neck. And then I’m going to slide my legs out long and prepare for shavasana.
For you, it might be the same or it might be something a little bit different, so choreograph
your ending here of our yoga ritual and make sure you take at least a moment or two to
relax in stillness. And I will see you tomorrow. Very, very, very awesome work. I’m so proud
of us for sticking with it. Even if you’ve missed a day or it hasn’t been exactly what
you thought, we’re here now, and tomorrow is a new day, and I will see you guys okay?
Take good care. Namaste.

  1. You are an angel. Yes, people still doing this a few years later. I like every one your videos and can't thank you enough for making yoga so accessible. You make my life, and thus the lives of those around me, better.

  2. This practice went so quickly for me! Thank you so much it feels great 🙂 I've missed quite a few days in between doing yoga, but I've done every practice so far – and i'm so commited to doing it every day until we finish!

  3. This was actually not a bad practice, which is good because its god damn too hot today, so how you doing idkgurl?

  4. great practice, thank you again!

  5. Thank you Adriene. I feel fantastic. We’re approaching the thirty days. I don’t want them to end 🙁

  6. Thanks for a great grounding practice – just found this video and love it – perfect to add to my morning routine to start my day! Namaste 🙏

  7. cannot believe I'm almost finishing this 30 days practice, I'll come back tomorrow too! thank you for these videos x

  8. Thank you again for putting together this challenge, I feel so empowered. Today was really fun, I'm proud of myself because I could easily follow the physical poses as well as find a calm state of mind. Everyday of this challenge I find it more fun to add in my own poses during playtime etc., my favorites are Happy Baby, Child's Pose and smiling 🙂

  9. First of all,

    “The love of Light in me honors the Light in you!”

    Secondly, Thank you for keeping Yoga weird. Portland is fun, because it welcomes the weird. Texas is a ball, because BBQ’s and pit masters are considered sacred; just like food is fuel for the body.. I feel like your feed helps my soul with the constant reminder that we control our sessions. Whether we push ourselves on the days where it’s hard to balance our life or rock happily in our comfort zones like a happy baby. My days feel much more at ease when I begin my workout journey with you as one of my guides.

    Thirdly, the other day I did a little session by myself by the lake and had to give you props! I am flexible as the heavens, always have been, but I never ever did yoga by myself without a teacher. I always went to classes and yours by far is the best, because you are constantly reminding me to try it without holding your hand or being told to just because it’s good for me. My mind should be telling my body or vice versa to do so and a couple of days ago it did. Thank you for this renewed strength and confidence that I can lead my own ritual. The silence and sensations I felt and heard by Japan’s lake will forever hold a place in my memory bank and heart, many Thanks to yoU!

    Gracias & Namaste! To Benji too! 🐶🙏🏾💙

  10. I think this has been my favorite one so far. I love these so much!

  11. Genius!

  12. Loving 30 days of yoga but this is the only video that won't play on my iPad and I'm desperate to do the 30 and not 29! Anyone else having a problem getting this to play too? 🙁

  13. ur a great guide Adrienne interesting practice today!

  14. I like the restorative practices that teach us to take care of our temple. Coming from an army background, we were taught that “pain is weakness leaving the body!”…. No. If the body is in pain, it’s a sign to slow down to restore. Just the other day I injured my knee working out. I totally babied that knee and I’m back at it with functioning knees. You don’t have to “push through” everything, and that’s why I love restorative yoga because it reminds you to love your body, and not force it. Yoga in general does this, but restorative yoga specifically highlights this point. 🧘🏾‍♀️ Namaste 🙏🏾

  15. Ohh wow now that was a very different move with the side leg up & I really loved today thanks for a great start to my amaZing day 😁

  16. My absolute favorite practice so far!!!

  17. I feel awesome🙏🏽

  18. Yay, Day 26! For some reason, the happy baby pose toward the end was the best!

  19. Just what I needed after a loooong day with meetings and stressing at the airport. Thanks!

  20. Day 26 complete, great practice!

  21. If you didnt itch your nose at 15:24 then you're the worst yogi ever!
    CAN'T BELIEVE I MADE IT TO DAY 26 thanks Adrienne for making yoga accessible and easier for me❤

  22. Free time did some more knee to elbow LOVE THAT. And some up dogs lol…

  23. I love it. Loved it. Thanks Adriene

  24. Done ✅

  25. Thanks Adriene 😀

  26. Today I had some problems understanding the instructions. It wasnt quite understand what Im supposed to do. Im not sure wether it was because I was so tired, or because the instructions were vague.

    However I liked deep breaths quite a lot. Did this before sleep, and I'm hoping for a calm sleep. And now Im off to bed, namaste 🙏

  27. The amount of talking is distracting and it feels like neither Adrienne or I can focus. Love the flows but man it gets incredibly frustrating

  28. Thank you Adriene. I am now enjoying yoga so much that I go to my mat first thing every morning… and I feel soooo goooood!!

  29. I'm on day 26!! Can't wait for tomorrow's practice 🙂 I find posting on instagram story everyday helps keep myself motivated to complete the challenge! If you'd like to check it out it's @_plantbased_pharmacist!! would love to get to know other yogis or beginners like me haha

  30. Still here, still going. Getting closer! 😀

  31. This one just flew by!!! 🧘‍♀️🙏

  32. I skipped a day yesterday, and have been feeling very unmotivated this week but I'm so glad I decided to get on the mat today.

  33. I'm pausing the video to publicly acknowledge what a fantastic role model Adriene is. Between 4 and 5 minutes she recognizes she might have made a mistake when guiding our crescent moon shape. Instead of showing any disappointment in herself, she says "I'm human…Very sorry" with a certain sincerity. Then… she moves right on. We can all learn a lesson there to not beat ourselves up over silly mistakes we sometimes make. We're HUMAN! Adriene seems like the chillest. Thank you for sharing your yoga with us.

  34. Loved this one!!!! i fell a few days behind because of a bad cold and have been trying to catch up by doing two videos per day but couldn't always do them both. today, though, I finally caught up!! yay, should finish my 30 days on time!

  35. These are fantastic. I've been doing them to get loose for snowboard season. Thanks for making yoga accessible. I'm doing this around my kid toys, work schedule and the pets who think I'm on the floor so I can snuggle. It's fun. (Though, I'm not a smiler. That's my least favorite pose)

  36. Day 26 done and I feel like I’m addicted to this now. Who would have a thought a 57 year old man would really love this. Thank you Adriene. You are a star.

  37. Thank you Adriene for sharing 🙂 really THANK YOU!

  38. I came back to the mat and this challenge today after being ill (in body and mind) for three weeks and I am so glad I finally did, it has made me feel so much more alive and positive about things ( myself) again. Thank you!

  39. It was so good today… 🌚time. I needed every bit!!!!

  40. I fell behind on this challenge but I am almost done!!

  41. Things are starting to get a little easier, long way to go to become as flexible as you though. LOL

  42. it's not the yoga that brings me to the mat, it's you adriene. i've never committed to anything like this. i feel connected to the earth, my body , and the universe. i'm stronger not only physically but also emotionally. i feel empowered to try more, i feel confident that my efforts will make me feel good. i'm encouraged to find what feels good, literally. i remember to breathe now. i come here every day and do something with your guidance, and you say "you got this" or "i love you" or "namaste" or say something PUNny and you make my day. so glad you exist. so glad i found you. you're a gift to humanity adriene! may you receive so much more kindness than you give. you deserve it. :*

  43. I love this earth day practice. Whenever I feel like not getting up and still sneaking in some extra zzzzzZzzzz’s, I think of today’s yoga practice and I am immediately inspired to get up. So yey! Thanks, Adriene! <3

  44. Wonderful! Didn't think I could do the whole practice today but I did and I loved it!

  45. I committed to 30 days and I am feeling less back pain, more energy and I even dropped a couple pounds! I love your videos! My favorite practices end with a mantra and I appreciate hearing yours! I've told all my friends at work to try it, just for some "me time" and they are digging it too! Thank you! You are awesome!

  46. As always, I feel like I can't adequately express how much I appreciate this channel <3

    This might be too honest, but as a person who struggles with disordered eating, this is doing wonders for me. I usually think of exercise exclusively as a means to expand calories. But when I get on the mat, I forget about that. Instead of constantly thinking "Now I've burnt x many calories", I feel like I can fully inhabit and feel my body and its movements for a little while without my mind getting in the way.

    I used to give up on exercise when things got hard, because I could only focus on how I wished I looked and that's frankly not a very good motivation. Just makes you feel bad. (SO BAD). But this doesn't feel that way at all; it feels fun and playful, even when it's challenging. Has pretty much changed my entire relationship with exercise, and helps relieve so much stress.

  47. I am so happy i started this 30 day yoga , my practice in just 26 days has gone from not getting it!!! to why the hell haven't i been doing this before lol Thank thank thank you Adriene love and light

  48. I'm a newbie to yoga and I started last month with your beginner yoga video which i repeated for 7 days, so i could learn the poses and names. Since then I've spent everyday doing this course. I've not missed a day for 33 days now and I absolutely love it. It's become my perfect morning routine and sets me up for the day. I love that you inspire people to put their own personality into it and it's becoming more than just an exercise for me. Thank you for inspiring me.

  49. This is my second time with the 30days. I still take around 40 days to finish this. But never the less I'm trooping ahead

  50. I think one of the greatest things you've taught me about yoga is that it's not just a form of physical therapy, rather it's a combination of both physical and mental therapy. I arrived on my "yoga mat" (A.k.a. the fuzzy carpet I have lying next to my bed) and felt quite sad, for I'd started the day with some negative thoughts, and was tearing up a bit. Having yo–ur channel (AND yoga😂) has made me really tranquil. It's comforting to have a "weird" yoga instructor who's always encouraging and reminds us to love and connect with ourselves. I keep coming back because of this reason. You are a sunrise on a cloudy day. Bless you, Adrienne Mishler! Bless your channel! DAY 26 COMPLETE.☀️❤😺🐄

  51. I have followed this yoga challenge up until day 26 😍 Yay. I have to say unfortunately i dont feel that different 😅🙁 In everyday life at least. I like that i kind of made a routine out of it, every evening i do yoga, then i meditate and i go to bed. That is really nice 😊 But other than that i am not sure. My heels are still not touching the floor in down dog 😅 But i think my arms are probably stronger!

  52. I am ready to share : 03.10.19, I started this challenge on the 02.07.19 ! It was my first time getting into yoga, so I took the time to exercise with other more "beginner friendly" videos ^^ ! I experienced 3 major things : first, I can sit in every poses I want, in a chair, on the ground, everywhere really and feel great ! Second, I gained a flexibility I didn't had since before puberty, wich is amazing! Third, I came to a place where I feel right away if and where my body hurts, and I can really feel it, and find a better place fast ! I want to end this series to start yoga camp ! My boyfriend and my sister are now watching this channel and trying slowly to get into yoga ! Love and support from France <3

  53. Still here 🙂 man can I tell how much my practice has improved!! ❤️

  54. Great!. I started practicing on my splits.

  55. Captain's log: Day 145…. I have finally completed day 26.

  56. Namaste! Thank you very much!

  57. This has been the best 30 days ever! Love spending time with you each day! Such a breath of fresh air! (This video had me cracking up, btw!! "You say vertebra…" ) Thank you from the bottom of my heart! <3

  58. Hi there Adriene 😊Going on day 56 day!! Today's mantra is Atma Prakasha My true self shines with it's own light Namaste friend 🙏Doe 💖🌝

  59. Thank you for today 🙂

  60. Love this! A friend recommended it and I’m so grateful.

  61. Just what I needed, my back wasn't feeling quite well but this was real nice

  62. Thanks for keeping yoga weird!
    Had no idea what i was getting myself into on day 1.
    Kinda sceptical.
    But now yoga is the highlight of my morning!

  63. It's 2019 and I'm here. Wish I have known this before… Loving it!!!

  64. Thank you for your time. I appreciate it ❤

  65. A really good video. I'm loving how as the day progresses, the movements are actually less about moving and more about not moving. As an anxious person, it has helped me find peace in the "nothing is happening". Thank you, Adriene. Even when I'm doing this years later after it was released, it has helped me so much, I do wish to do yoga every day now, I look forward to it, thank you c:

  66. I really enjoyed that. Went on to practice crow a little bit more, maybe I’ll be able to get it in a few weeks! Thank you, Adriene!

  67. Beginner at 63 and LOVE it!!!

  68. Getting there slowly but surely, thanks for making these videos!

  69. Thank you 🙂

  70. Thank you for Day 26!

  71. Day 26 done "the most important thing here is to commit to your breath"

  72. It was so funny… we started on our backs… deep breathing… and then a yawn… and I yawned at EXACTLY the same time 🙂

  73. Yoga day 185, it is a battle, between the Yoga-Weight lifting alliance and the axis of evil consisting of Plantar fasciitis and office work. The forces of good are reclaiming ground lost over the last couple of weeks and it looks like they are winning. However the prospect for a definitive victory remain uncertain.

  74. loved this one! weird yoga <3 gracias!!

  75. I love I dont have to look at the screen as much anymore so much fun and love just to play with it thx for everything!!! Namaste

  76. Thank you

  77. Love your guidance! Thank you 🙏

  78. day 26✔️today's practice wasn't easy, but I enjoyed it.

  79. 2019 and doing the challenge! Absolutely love it and I am taking the readers of my blog on the journey with me! I highly enjoy doing your videos before my morning work-out. It really helps me to get all the kinks of sleep out and to prepare my mind for the day and workout to come! Thanks Adriene!

  80. Thank you Adriane for this challenge.❤It wasn't easy but I did it. Only 3 days to go and I am really grateful for this challenge.🤗I will stay with yoga and your channel for long time I am sure.💪

  81. Here today and loving it! I owe this all to you! Thank you Adriene!

  82. I am loving this program. I've never been able to manage yoga before, either because of my flexibility or not finding it 'fun' enough, but this series makes me so happy and I can feel the difference in my body. I look forward to it every day and I'm looking forward to trying some of the other programs straight after!

  83. Thanks a lot 😘😍🥰🥰😍😍

  84. "if not, i'm human". this is the only time you are mistaken. you are angel. <3. can't thank you enough.

  85. Thanks for introducing yoga to me🤙

  86. Adriene, I look forward to Yoga with you each day. I'm on day 26 today and have enjoyed anddeveloped in a lot of areas of my life, while doing 30 days of Yoga with Adriene. You have connected with all of us online, in a unique way. I thank you because I have changed, mostly by loving myself more. In a good and healthy way.
    I am a christian and the practice you teach is helpful to my mind, body and soul, Ive learned to love myself and add me the list of priorities, in taking care of myself.
    My meditation is on the goodness of God and Jesus our savior. I want to take care of myself and your videos are my avenue to do so. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. From one Texan to another, I love your personality!! Its genuine, kind and i love your teaching style!!!!!

  87. I don't feel like myself today. Didn't concentrate much. I feel heavy but I still did this practice. Hope tomorrow is a great day. Thank you, Adriene.

  88. Loved this video thank you

  89. I had a really tiring day yesterday and woke up feeling stiff and achy. I wasn't going to skip day 26 and I'm so glad I didn't. I feel so much better – the aches and stiffness is gone. Thank you!!!

  90. Lovin the freestyle endings for the last few lessons…feeling great😷🧘🏻‍♂️

  91. I wasn't able to do this until just before bed but I'm glad I didn't skip it. I followed this then the 20 minute bedtime yoga. Found out today that I convinced a friend to start the challenge! I hope she sticks to it. I've felt so happy these past few days and I'm convinced that these practices are why ❤ loving the videos and practice ❤❤❤

  92. Loving the 30 days challenge Adriane! Thank you

  93. I felt very happy today. You saying it's awesome to be alive really clicked today as I looked down at my wiggly toes in downward facing dog! Also I feel like this was the practice where I really got the hang of breathing! Yes!

  94. I love how you say to breathe into the various body parts….breathing into my big toe. I love this awareness. Breath is the first thing a doctor checks for when delivering a baby….before food, liquids, pooping or peeing. Is there breath? Thank you for this awareness.💝

  95. Absolutely needed this one today lovely lady & team…Thank you!..:-)

  96. I really want someone to just do a youtube channel of "Physiology Yoga" not about mood or shakra or any of that stuff simply improving mobility and discussing the benefits of each stretch.. not every single thing just being an analogy or irrelevant comment..

  97. Thank you, teacher.

  98. Adriene! You have no idea of the impact you have had on my life Lol. You've created yoga magic with this series. I've done 26 days straight… the longest I've stuck to any form of exercise. I'm 3 months post separation (after 17 years) and needed something for my mindset. I found you randomly and I remember the difference I felt on day 2! Now I have a new love for my body, I'm more conscious and aware and feel like I can do anything! I will defo be doing this 30 days again! Thank you so so much.

  99. i feel like the first 15 days i was really improving and getting stronger, but the recent days were slowing down so much, i feel like i stopped with what i did in the first half. maybe the harder and calmer days should be mixed up better?

  100. Happy happy happy & proud 🙂
