Dedicate – Day 8 – Meditate | Yoga With Adriene


– Hi everyone and
welcome to Dedicate, your 30 day yoga journey.
It’s Day 8. Don’t hate,
meditate, feel great. This is an awesome practice. This is one in which I invite
you to pause the video and maybe grab a little blanky or towel. Maybe grab a little pillow.
Any kind of pillow will do. And if you don’t have
these things, don’t worry. But it might be
nice to have them for today’s extra cozy practice. Light a candle if you
like and let’s get started. (bright music) Alrighty my friends,
welcome back. Let’s begin on the ground. This is a nice low to
the ground practice today. So as you get settled in see if you can right
away just begin to let go of the day thus far. Quietly, kindly,
brush away your to-do list. Anything you have
for after this practice and let’s see if we can
really drop in to enjoying this beautiful moving
meditation today. Finding the softness. So we’re going to begin
in a nice comfortable seat. And I’ll invite you right
away to just find a little sway, a little softness in the spine. So we often start practice like
this when we’re doing a session kind of focused
on getting unstuck or when we feel like we don’t know what
to do in a situation. And this is a really beneficial
way to approach your practice because it’s a really
valuable way to approach life. Often when we’re met with
challenges or we feel stuck, we feel like we have to
work harder, push harder. So today’s practice is just a
beautiful reminder to relax, lean in,
find the softness, the ease and allow
your movement to be more like a moving meditation
rather than muscling through. And then we can take the essence
of today’s beautiful relaxing practice with us into the more fiery practices
that are on the way. But for now, right here,
right now find a gentle sway. And if this is the first time
you’ve ever moved like this in a yoga class or in your life, just notice what comes up.
Like what resistance? Like when you
feel kind of silly, just know that you’re not alone
and there are probably thousands of people doing this
with us right now that feel the same way. So don’t let that stop you. Don’t let your feeling about
something necessarily turn you away from it. See if you can
just kind of smile. Use all the tools that we’ve
learned together thus far to just kind of lean in
and start to integrate the neck a little more. And the shoulders. And then we’re going to take
this side sody stretch that we’ve been integrating and
you’re just going to find a soft, easy lift of the right arm
all the way up and then take it over towards the left. And just like we did on Day 1, you’re gonna find
what feels good here. Just finding a
little bit of movement. It can be pulsing.
It can be soft, easy movement. And then in your own time,
coming through center. Finding your sway and then
taking it to the other side. Nice and easy. And then when you’re ready
coming all the way back through center and we’ll bring the hands
to rest gently on the tops of the thighs or the knees
and take in loving breath in through the nose. And as you exhale, go ahead and
breathe out through the mouth. Close your eyes as
you’re ready, and again, big inhale in through the nose. And allowing
yourself to just land here. Whatever you’re coming with,
just being honest about it all. Landing here in
the moment fully. One more time, big inhale. Nothing fancy,
just big breath in. And releasing out
through the mouth. Just taking a moment
to find stillness here. Noticing where your thoughts go. Noticing where you might be
clenching or holding and seeing if you can right
away start to soften. Beautiful, then draw the
hands together at your heart, bow the head to the hands. Take a deep breath in. Empty it out and then flutter
your eyelashes open. Gently lift the corners
of your mouth just slightly. Inner smile goes a long way. Particularly if we
find that we’re really, we’ve veered quite a distance
far off from like a moving meditation or
moving with intention, just a little inner
smile can help remind you like it’s all good. I can’t control
everything anyway. Only thing I can control is how
I move and then how I move of course influences how I feel,
et cetera, et cetera. So here we go. So we’re gonna uncross the legs. Just bring the
left heel just a bit today and then bring
the right foot into follow. So we were in Sukhasana. This kind of criss-cross
applesauce situation and now we’re
coming into Sidhasana. So it’s just one foot
in front of the other. So the heels are
going to come in followed by the right leg and you’re gonna check
in here right away. Be honest.
Is it tight? Do I feel
tightness in the hip crease? Do I feel collapsed? Can I do something to improve
the length in my spine which is then going to
help me breathe easier? And a great thing to do
since we’ve all brought a little blanket or towel is to just lift
the hips up a little higher. Oh yeah, baby,
now I feel amazing! (laughs) That little lift. And I love the metaphor behind
these at home yoga practices and all the yoga practices to be
honest but something like kind of setting yourself up like this
to just really be an open book. Really open,
open everything up and find your way to good. Okay, so one foot in
front of the other here. You have your hips
lifted up perhaps today. We’re gonna inhale, send the
fingertips behind the ears. So just connecting a little bit
to subtle body lines here as you inhale reach for the sky. We find that
connection of hip to shoulder, shoulder to wrist, wrist
to fingertips and beyond. To infinity and beyond. Take a deep breath in and as you
exhale melt it all the way down. Send your heart forward. We’re coming
forward here nice and slow. Paying attention
to the sensation as we slowly melt it forward. You’re just gonna come
onto the forearms to start. And you might find
a soft easy sway here. And then you’ll know if
it’s right in your body to continue the
journey on just a bit. Maybe bringing the forehead all the
way down to the earth. If you have a yoga block, you
can grab it now or sometimes I just like to stack the fists like bubble gum,
bubble gum in a dish. Not everyone will get that
and that’s okay but if you do, awesome. We’ll play a
little bubble gum and just give yourself a little prop
for the forehead to rest on. And then put some weight, just
some awareness really in your hips, in your thighs and start to breathe
deep into your belly. And one little loving mantra I like to start with when I’m doing a moving meditation or
just getting down low to find balance, not necessarily
embracing a full asana practice or I also do some
similar exercises. I always like to start by
inhaling lots of love in and exhaling lots of love out. So this is good in a
soft relaxing practice. Also really good before I run or anything where
you’re going to be uniting body and spirit, mind, mental, mental game. I also like to start inhaling
lots of love in and exhaling lots of love out
whenever I’m saying a prayer. It’s just a great
place to start so take it or leave it.
Inhaling lots of love in here. And then
exhaling lots of love out. Continuing to notice where you
might be gripping or holding. And just a little grace notice
so just bring a little energy into the feet, to the toes. Start to slow down your breath. Soften through the face. And if you were hoping for
a workout today, just trust. Trust that
everything is as it should be. This is the practice
you’re supposed to be gifted with today.
So lean in. Perhaps this time today will up your game
in tomorrow’s practice or in another
more fiery practice. And then slowly we’ll again
bring awareness to the hips. Let the lower body be
heavy as you slowly release. Come all the way back up. Stacking through the spine. Stacking head over heart,
heart over pelvis. On your next inhale, reach the
shoulders so lift the shoulders all the way up to the ear lobes. Squeeze and lift, breathe in. And exhale slide shoulder
blades down the back body. Awesome, keep the left heel in. Gently connect to
your center even here. It’s always moving
from a place of connect, send the left leg out long. We’re gonna flex. I said left leg, send
the right leg out long. I’m already Zened out. Send the left (laughs). Send the right leg out long.
Sorry guys. And you’re gonna flex your
right toes towards your face. And just gently turn, turn,
turn so that your heart and your center
are facing your leg. And if you’re on a blanky you
might just do a little whoop to shift your hips or your
hip support to move with you. Cool. Now take the fingertips,
bring them behind the ears. Inhale, find that connection
to your center as you reach up. Exhale, think up
and over as we dive over towards the right toes. Now wherever the hands
land is perfectly beautiful. It can be here on the thigh. It can be here on the shin. Maybe you’re
grabbing the pant leg. Maybe it’s just fingertips. Maybe in time you work to
pull that right hip crease back. Create more space
in the front body, in the back body to
find a Forward Fold. Maybe traditionally
getting head to knee. We call this Janus or Sirsan,
Head to Knee Pose. But honor, so
important to honor you. Honor where you’re at. In a lot of ways that’s what
this journey is all about. It’s dedicating time with yourself for yourself. Honoring who you are
and where you are today. Okay, I’ll shut up and allow you to listen to the
sound of your breath. Listen to the
wisdom of your heart. And make sure you’re not holding
or clenching in the neck here. See if you can soften and relax. Little grace note, little
energy in the toes and the feet. Stick with it.
Lean in, soften, allow. And then from your foundation,
that which is touching the earth here and your
energetic body, slowly roll up. Yes. From here, ground down
through the sits bones. Inhale,
fingertips behind the ears. Reach for the sky. From your center, dial all
the way over towards the left. Gentle twist to your left. Right hand can come to the
outer edge of the left leg, left fingertips
behind and we breathe here. So we’re flexing the right foot. We’re breathing deep.
We’re sitting up nice and tall. Working to create
a healthy flow of energy that runs up and down the spine. Gently just moving aside
anything that might be stuck, any cobwebs, any stagnant old things that we just don’t need
to carry around with us anymore. Cool, and then slowly
releasing back to center. We’re gonna take the right foot.
We’re gonna bring it in. We’re going to
re-center if we have a blanket. And then we’ll switch.
Take the right heel in. Left foot to follow. Check in here. Bring in
the hips a little bit high so that your
knees can fall down. You’ll feel really cozy. And then when you’re ready
fingertips behind the ears, inhale, take the deepest
breath you’ve taken all day as you reach up high. And then exhale,
soften into it, lean into it. Nice and slow,
forearms to the earth. Find a little sway here. Gently opening
up through the hips. And then find
what feels good here. Maybe coming all the way down. Maybe bringing the fist together
for a prop up for the forehand. And depending on what time of
year that you were doing this you have any
sinus pressure this can be a insanely awesome thing. It shouldn’t be so good that
something this simple can help you feel a clearing out but this little pressure
right in the center of the
forehand between the brows. Okay, find the mantra. Inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. And don’t try to
think too hard here. Just allow.
Feel it out. Inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. Remembering our
observe practice. Can I reside in the
role of the observer here? Notice if you’re
clenching anywhere. See if you can soften,
maybe around the hips, energetically,
around the ankles. Perhaps the shoulders, the traps. Let the weight of your
head go for one more breath. And then enjoy this blossoming as you slowly let the hips get heavy and roll
it all the way up. Stack through, hands come
to the knees or the thighs and notice how you feel. Amazing. Love for sale
except the love is free. Everything’s free.
So great. I love it. Okey doke, here we go. Keep your right heel in,
kick your left leg out and if you need to do a little
shift with your blanky, you can. We’re gonna turn the
torso to heart space, (clears throat) excuse me, over towards that left foot. Flex the left
toes towards your face. When you’re ready,
big breath in. Fingertips reach behind
the ears all the way up. And think up and over as if
you’re maybe taking your belly over a little
beach ball or pillow. Dang it.
We have a pillow right here. You can use your pillow. Inhale, reach up and over. And then same thing,
any amount that the body, you know, listen to your body.
Body talks, we listen. That’s the way it goes and that’s why regular yoga
practice is amazing. ‘Cause you can see how that
conversation just fluctuates and then we get out of the doing
the yoga and we really create a practice of experiencing
and listening and responding. So wherever you are
today, ah, be there. It’s all good. Maybe you need to bend the
knee generously to kind of find your way to
good here today. And then we
allow and we release. We breathe and we let go. Just keep noticing
where your thoughts go. And remember this is
time that you’ve dedicated to yourself, for yourself. Trust it.
Trust the process. Trust that it’s valuable. Trust that you’re worth it. Then get really
heavy in your bum. Heavy in the
hips and nice and slow, super slow, roll it up. Back to center. Inhale, reach the
fingertips behind the ears. And exhale, gentle
twist to the right. Oh yeah. Little buddy. He loves Day 8. Breathing deep. Inhale, breathe into
your belly, your guts. Your instincts. Cool and then come all
the way back to center. Awesome, okay. So from here we’re
gonna bring both feet in. We’re gonna take the blanky and we’re just gonna
bring it to the side. You’ll kick your
legs out on your mat. And if you brought
a pillow to practice go ahead and grab it now. Okay, so from here we’re gonna
take the pillow and it can be a couch pillow,
it can be any pillow. Bedroom pillow. You’re gonna hug it
right up to your sweet belly. Right in your hip creases and
then you’re gonna take your hands, yeah, baby and move the fleshy part of the
buttocks aside. Feel your sits bones kind of
move down to the ground or maybe not.
Maybe you don’t feel ’em. Maybe you won’t. And we’re just gonna move our
nice booties to the side so we can at least visualize
this grounding down to lift up through the ground. The Crown, did you
watch “The Crown” on Netflix? So good, so amazing. If you did, tell me down below.
So great. Hug your pillow in toward your
body so squeeze it up and then when you’re ready, inhale, reach
the fingertips towards the sky. And then exhale think up and
over as you bend your knees Paschimottanasana, you’re gonna
rest your chest and your heart on your pillow,
maybe your forehand. You can also bring your
blanket or your towel into play and create a little lift
so you can relax your forehead
down on the ground. Down on your prop. Okay, then in time you can
work to straighten your legs and we’re gonna be here
for about seven to ten breaths depending on the
rhythm of your breath. So we’re gonna let it all go. Breathing into the back body. Calming the nervous system. Smoothing out any frayed nerves. Relieving any tension. Enjoy. So holding this posture, feeling
the breath and noticing how the breath can stretch
the skin of the back body. And I invite you
to find depth here so don’t shortchange yourself. Once you find a
nice place to be stay there for seven to ten breaths. Relax your tongue in
the base of your mouth. Soften through
the skin of the face. Inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. One more quiet
breath on your own. The slowly we’ll release. Come back up mindfully. Enjoy. Just melt as you
release all the way up. Okay, check it out. We’re going to take
the blanket to the side. If you have it,
you’re gonna take the pillow, bring it to the top of your mat
for your head and then you’re gonna bring your blanket or your
towel back into play and it can either fold up or
you can roll it up. We’re gonna bring it underneath
the backs of the legs. The leggies. Heck yeah!
Okay, here we go. Come on down to your back. Get situated. Where’s my breathing bolster? Come here breathing bolster. Take a second to
get situated here. You’re gonna wanna maybe
shortchange yourself of this too if you’re used to really moving
fast and you’re a busy person like me but man, I’m telling ya. Stick with this, okay? This is part of the commitment. So when you get here you’re
going to allow your toes to just open up just a bit and
allow the inner thighs to get a little sunlight. Hey-o, I’ve never
said that before. (laughs)
You brought that out of me. Okay and you’re gonna get cozy.
That’s the thing. And we’re gonna
find stillness by bringing the hands to the
rib cage or the belly. And when you feel cozy
you’re gonna soften everything. Inhale in deeply. Exhale, close your eyes
and begin to find stillness. Now allow your
breath to just return to it’s natural ebb and flow. And enjoy a moment of
complete and total relaxation. And if you find
you’re not relaxed, you’re distracted, cool. Way to be human. Remember this
is just a practice. Do your best to
practice relaxing. Practice being still. And if you’re wondering
if you’re doing it right, the answer, my friend, is yes. Sweet. Now slowly bring your
awareness back to your body. Wiggle the toes. And slowly we’re going to
open up through the left arm. Palm face up to the sky. Open up through the right
arm, palm face up to the sky. Then we’ll rotate the wrists and
the ankles and start to bring awareness to just the
quality of air in the room or wherever you’re practicing.
Maybe outside. Gently begin to deepen your
breath and bring your awareness now to the quality of air in
your practice space and to the light in the room
or wherever you are. And now to any sounds,
any noises you can hear. And let everything go. And on your next big inhale,
bring the palms together. Thumbs to third eye. Thank you so much for
going on this journey with me. You are doing an awesome job. I hope that you know and
feel that what you’re doing for yourself is not only an
incredible thing for you and your personal
journey but I think, I’m biased,
but for the world. Right? So thank you so much for sharing your time and
your energy with me. Let us know how today’s practice
went in the comments section down below and I’ll
see you tomorrow for Day 9. We’re gonna get high tomorrow. Okay, but for now I love you. Namaste. (bright music)

  1. Hello everyone! One week in the books!

    Often when we are met with challenges or when we feel stuck, we feel like we have to work harder, push harder, so today is a beautiful reminder to relax, lean in, and find a softness and an ease.

    Enjoy this moving meditation. An opportunity to get un-stuck. Lean in and get your sway on.

  2. Love your grey misty day

  3. This practice felt great! Until the end, lying down caused my back to erupt into spasms of pain. Might have stretched too deeply 😅

  4. Thanks for this. Also, The Crown was soooo goood!

  5. I love doing this! During the exercise, I found that my stiff lower back worked so hard and it was hurt 🙁 Later, I felt enjoyable relaxed lying body, that it feels so good. I will have a nice good sleep tonight, Thank you Adriene, ILY 💖

  6. Thanks. Fabulous session.

  7. Exactly what I needed today, thank you so much ☺️

  8. I LOVE The Crown like I LOVE this 30 day challenge. I encouraged my niece who has practiced yoga to come join me for day 5. When we both said Namaste and looked to each other we had tears in our eyes. So emotional. Thank you for the beautiful journey Adriene x

  9. This was so far the most challenging day body-wise! That stretch!!! Slow movements uncover in a most beautiful and merciless way how our body is being neglected and uncared for and bring awareness to the parts of my (divine!!!) body, like that massive stretch of my back while leaning down – it was a tortutre, but at the same time – a revelation: so, is it you, my back? Hi there, it has been so long since I last felt you and had contact with you! Thank you for this day Adriene, it was amazing and has opened new spaces of conscious exploration of oneself. Looking forward to the fire tomorrow, though 😉 Love from Poland <3

  10. Just wow! I did day 7 yesterday then rearranged/cleaned the garage. Lifted heaving things and was terribly sore today from all the lifting. My body woke me up being sore especially my whole back. This practice got my breath in all the tight spots and I feel so much better!

    I was going to start watching The Crown but Downton Abby is my absolute fav. I am watching it again for the 3rd time 😀

  11. 3rd time on Day 8! Sure needed this today, very difficult for me to do all stretches but I am a work in progress. Thanks Adriene!

  12. I love you so much Adriene! ❤Thank you holding the space and your guiding through this sequence of practice🙏🏼 I can't believe it's already been 8 days of practice!🧘🏼‍♀️ 💃 Namaste

  13. I had to step away from years of meditation training because my anxiety was making it impossible for me to sit for long periods. So when I saw the title of this video, I approached it with a lot of trepidation and a STRONG desire to skip it. But you made practice feel safe and low pressure. It makes me believe I could get back to having a regular daily practice again, someday. Thank you so much. <3

  14. A bit late to the party, day 8 done. This is exactly what I needed after frustrating day at work. Thank you Adriene 🙂

  15. I loved it. And I love your humour. When you say something silly I remember that the combination of real life and yoga is possible. Thank you <3

  16. Your channel changed my life. Thank you Adriene, you never disappoint. Bless!

  17. Today I feel sad and lonely. Im not saying this practice cured it, but even for a moment I just felt better. You are an angel. Thank you so much for creating this beautiful set of practices.

  18. Had a difficult few days and this practice today was exactly what I needed! Thank you!

  19. just what i needed today! thank you

  20. This session was absolutely awesome… Thank you for making us feel this way, it was such a relaxing time spent with you

  21. Is this background for real??

  22. Don’t know what I would do without you- you have made ny meditation journey blissful. I love your energy, spirit and all your videos. Thank you Adrienne 🙂

  23. So unique so beautiful so cozy and one-of-a-kind Benji Great love always🌹🌹

  24. Love this practice. I completed your 30 days of Yoga and found this one. Love it and hoping you have more.
    BTW love your outfit. Any chance of letting us know where we can purchase this? Thank you.

  25. Today made me feel more out of shape than usual. I actually found the regular day practices to be easier and more relaxing. Sitting in cross legged position for more than a minute is very uncomfortable and often painful for me. I have to switch to straight legged or my feet together. I did my best though and I'll get there.

  26. This has been a new journey for me and I’m loving the challenge. I have genuinely been touched by the positive affirmations you give during the practice, that’s mostly why I’m here lol. This was a tough one for me but I made it to the end, yayyy! Thank you ❤️

  27. Do you read minds 😉 I was hoping for intensity but you reminded me to let go and accept stillness. And stop trying to control. Thanks for the reminder

  28. Nice place dont want to leave

  29. Hi Adriene .. The last 8 days I started every morning with you and Benji and I truly enjoy it. Sometimes in the afternoon I am sad I have already done the session for the day. You are truly inspiring and an amazing person! Thank you so much for everything and everything I have learned so far. I can’t wait for day 9 and all the other days with you x

  30. Calm and peaceful session also hip opener

  31. <3

  32. All the way from Tunisia, Namaste!

  33. thankyou so much Adriene xx

  34. Who else is here in the comment section for The Crown? 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

  35. I have seen The Crown it’s wonderful.
    Just like your channel.

    Thank you for spreading your light!
    💞💫🕉☯️🧘🏼‍♀️

  36. I really didn't want the session to end!!! it went so fasttt and I was really really enjoying! that was exactly what I needed in my bad days these days… Thank you <3

  37. Day 8 on July 8th. So happy to be back after I almost finished Yoga Revolution a few months ago, then moved, and stopped doing yoga altogether. I'm so grateful for these videos, this "me" time, all the positive talk. Thank you Adriene!

  38. I pitched a giggle fit during blankie/pillow time.
    My dogs were playing tug of war with a toy so the whole time,
    "clear your mind of distractions"
    …grrrrrrrr…
    "find stillness"
    …Grrrrrrrrrrr…
    "gain awareness of the room around you"
    …GRRRRRRRR….

    lol Loved it.

  39. Am I the only one who cries every time she says namaste?

  40. this stretching felt amazing, it was like I was alone in the universe, thanks again

  41. Hi Adriene
    I have noticed that in each 30 days journey the 8 class is nice and relaxing …so I practice them when my body asking to slow down and relax ..they are all amazing classes …Thank you … 😀😘🍀🌺

  42. I started Dedicate this month and as always I love it Adriene you are such a blessing to bring yoga in my home where I feel connected to you and everyone else practicing.

    I felt so uncomfortable during this practice. It was extremely difficult for me but I kept telling myself Do what you can. There was lots of tension and pain in each posture/pose and I have no clue why! Either way I honor how my body responds to each video/practice we do. Thank you💕💕💕🙌🏽🙌🏽

  43. I found the last relax hurt t

  44. I just came in from being outside in a busy village and I was thinking of going straight to making dinner. But aaaahh am I glad I decided to do this one before starting cooking. Changed my pace completely. ❤️🙏

  45. Amazing that this practice fell today for me. We lost a beloved pet today, and this was a lovely practice in the midst of terrible grief. Thank you ❤️

  46. Thank you! I've been "dedicated" for three weeks yet on day 8. I'm determined to follow through to day 30. Today's theme was right on time. I was feeling quite antsy and agitated and needed this space. During the session my son woke up from his nap twice and the hubby came in as soon as I got him back down. Today was a "show up, stay and commit" kind of session and I'm proud and thankful. <3

  47. When Adriene said "if you're wondering if you're doing it right. The answer my friend is 'yes'" I started crying. I wasn't even wondering if I was doing it right but it hit deeper than that. As if my whole life I have been wondering if I was doing life right and finally someone told me that I'm okay. That i'm doing life right. I don't know. It was a powerful moment. One of many powerful moments I've had on this journey thus far.

  48. you are an angel 💛 thank you for making spiritual self care so accessible. you have brought me so much personal healing today – i thank you from the bottom of my heart

  49. 4th time on day 8! Love this practice every time! I could stay relaxed on the floor like this forever! Thanks, Adriene!

  50. Remarkable, Amazing! Just what I needed today😌

  51. Thank you Adriene❤️

  52. This really was just what I needed today to deal with my overwhelming week. Was so quick I was tempted to do it a second time. Love

  53. I feel so relaxed. I think I am just getting the hang of meditation now….just learning to watch my thoughts. And I tried what I've learned in this practice and it worked wonders. I am so relaxed.

  54. Beautiful! Thank you 🙏

  55. I followed the core practice with this one and it was just what I needed ! Great practice, I think I’ll start my mornings doing this 🙏🏻

  56. The impact of your yoga and some candlelight on my body is incredible.I feel relaxed.

  57. Today’s practice was in a hotel room just prior to a work conference. Thank goodness for a quiet and kind moment prior to that. I find some of these bending moments difficult – I think I’m tight and I have a belly that gets in the way! But I do the best I can and try to accept what is.

  58. Feels great after doing this slow practice 🙂 The mind seems calmer and feels like the thoughts have slowed down..Thanks Adriene!

  59. Day 9! Allow the inner thighs to get a little sunlight! Love it. 😜

  60. Best practice ever. Lol. Namaste.

  61. Quickest practice so far, great journey so far. 🙏🏼

  62. A friend recommended your yoga sessions to me and I am so thrilled! I tried a few of the 'stand alone' sessions before beginning the 30 day Dedicate programme last week. Having previously done yoga classes at my gym, I had some knowledge, but was rusty and creaky! Loving the positive and accepting tone of your delivery. Adriene, you are a gem of a find, thank you so much! Looking forward to following you for as long as you keep making your programmes.

  63. To all the beauties who made it to day 8, I'm very proud to be on this journey with you all.

  64. Amazing amazing amazing. I loved this. Those deep stretches in the legs are soooo yummy. I am from the UK and yes the Crown is amazing season 3 is on its way!! Thank you Adriene for being my best friend ❤️❤️

  65. Thank you very much for in hell exhale breathe Adriene Benji you’re my Dog

  66. Day 8 is great… my body, mind & spirit have been healing..growing.. connecting with the Universe… I will never be able to thank Adriene enough for being the angel she is. Rock on

  67. Your voice is warm, gentle, loving, calming. Just the very sounf of your voice calms me down and your energy you resonate. I tried different yogas on youtube and its not just the physical practice, postures and yoga. I noticed that yoga with you especially brings me into such warm being and presence and relaxation.

    AN IDEA :
    Maybe you could make sleeping meditations, that people could play to fall asleep, and program in the dream, or ASMR audios, just one hour guided voice meditations, affirmations to listen and play, maybe music clips with mantras? something to play in the background during the day or some other audios to play during sleep.

    You are amazing spirit, I always feel so much genuine warm joyful gratitude and appreciation in my heart when I am doing this yoga journey. Thank you. I feel more peaceful relaxed complete and centered. Thank you for sharing your work.

  68. Love your practices, it would be super neat if at the end of your videos you played an extra 4inutes of just relaxing music at the end. ☺️ Thank you so much for sharing, I find it super difficult to find quality yoga free. Namaste. 💗

  69. I took a long break from yoga and did other workouts. I chose day 8 to break the break and it was perfect. I felt reunited with my muscles. Did that make sense? Haha! I absolutely love all your videos!! ❤️

  70. So good

  71. My cat added her purring vibrations to this practice, which she often often does to add some extra benefit to my meditations.

    Thank you for continuing to provide quality material on your channel to make this world a better place! I feel the love and want to share it too!

  72. Whenever I practice yoga, I light a candle burner, put some peppermint oil and turn the lights off. I let your voice guide me. When I feel like 28 min is not enough, I play some sounds for yoga and meditation and do the poses from Day 1. Much love from the Philippines. Namaste.

  73. O I love the way you do this, your humor and the way you make it all a little feast. I'm 64 and when it is too difficult for me I start again with lesson 1 ..only to expirerende that I grow better and stronger…I really love your lessons and hope that youn keep doing this..love from Holland

  74. When i found out i was gonna meditate today, i immediately decided to do my yoga practice in bed. Ended up falling asleep towards the end! Hahaha felt amazing.

  75. I'm very late to this video series, but I wanted to comment and say that today's practice was exactly what I needed. First day back at school and my abs still hurt to laugh from day 6! Thank you Adriene for this whole channel! ❤

  76. In the beginning, at the close your eyes moment, I could hear her heartbeat, perfectly! So cool! I've never felt so connected over phone, EVER!

  77. I lost power a couple days ago and was so disappointed that I couldn't follow vids 8 and 9… Now I'm trying to catch up! But the fact that I was disappointed tells me that this journey is already beneficial for me, so thank you.

  78. ILove you 💍🌹♥️

  79. THANK YOU Adriene 🙏🏾

  80. Day 8 – Dedicate & meditate! What a relaxing and loving practice today was 🙂 thank you Adriene! Sending lots of love out to you & the universe today!!! Namaste!!!

  81. Oh wow, this practise brought the tears out. I love these kinds of practises, I can let the bottled up emotions out 🤩 Gotta love going to work with the little puffiness in the eyes 😂 Amazing relaxing practise ☀

  82. Beautiful <3 I'm so happy im sticking with your practice, it's another level of happiness for me!

  83. What a great way to start my day, this practice was very relaxing….you do a very awesome job Adriene, i love you

  84. I love that the puppy joined you today. My cat, Remus, came over and sat with me while I stretched. Sirius Black, on the other hand…he had other ideas. But thanks for this today!

  85. 5th time on Day 8! Yay, needed this today just relaxing and stretching. Thanks, Adriene!

  86. Thank you so much for what you do. Your vibes are so powerful

  87. Much needed today, thank you Adriene!

  88. Finally started my dedicate journey 8 months late, I’m so happy I could reach day 8. This was so relaxing, and just what I needed. Thanks Adrienne!

  89. First of all: Thank you so much for your loving instructions. I hadn't been giving my body what it needed. After a brain tumor was removed, I was forced to retire. I'm 65 years old. I started the 30-day journey in January of this year. It's October and I'm finally on Day 8 LOL. I practiced the day from the series, then did the Foundations necessary to build the strength and understand better what I needed to be doing. I've had breaks with normal illnesses and find that I still have the strength. Today I realized how much I still need the stretching exercises. So, I plan to do more foundation practices until I can do this one with less pain. Before my Yoga with Adriene, I would walk into walls, trip over tiny bumps in the sidewalk. I'm a head person and hadn't really felt the rest of my body. A few will recognize what I'm saying. Thank-you for helping me to become grounded and to be able to feel my feet and legs when I walk.
    Again: I'm looking forward to the journey ahead of me and am grateful for where I am today.

  90. Today's practice was so relaxing. Loved it!

  91. Day 8's practice was exactly what I needed to slow down, relax, and enjoy life more. I came to this session concerned about global warming, the impeachment inquiry, the Syrians ~ and your words about how we can't control everything but we can control how we move ~ and the positive impact it can have going forward, were very meaningful and helped me greatly in focusing on the present moment. Now feeling awe, and "ahhhhhh ~ life is good". Many thanks, Adrienne! And namaste ~

  92. What a ride, and a very relaxing ride at that. I am making it a goal, a unintentional goal, to comment on each video about something that is meaningful. I've been trying to focus lately, and today I was able to with your guidance. I hope to have the idea when I'm struggling to focus, to meditate. Meditation is a good way to clear one's head. Thank you.

  93. Ooooo I needed that✨

  94. I love you too

  95. It’s been a habit to tear up after each video ends I literally love every moment of it and never in my life felt so relaxed and happy as in doing Yoga with you. You’re such a light Adriene♥️

  96. October 2019..
    It s never too late!!
    Dear Adriene,thank you so much!!
    You re really amazing!!

  97. I love you so much thank you and my buddy Benji give you both a heart❤❤ love always amen💍?

  98. OMG!! I was so disappointed in myself! My legs are not flexible enough yet to do the first stretches (one ankle in front of the other). I felt like I was going to break my ankles. I literally could barely lean forwards at all. I am going to use it positively though, and it will be fuel for my drive to continue my yoga journey.

  99. cant tell how much i love u Adriene ,, i was indeed need this mediatation 🙂 all my love for you

  100. Adriene 🙏🏻 I love you too
