Home – Day 3 – Awaken | Yoga With Adriene


– What’s up, everyone? Welcome to Home,
your 30-day yoga journey. I’m Adriene, and this is Benji, and today is Day 3: Awaken. Let’s get started. (upbeat gentle music) Alrighty, my darling friends,
let’s begin today’s practice on all fours in
Tabletop Position. As always, take
your time getting there. Come on down,
take a deep breath in. Place your wrists
underneath your shoulders, your knees directly
underneath your hip points, and let’s start with some
spinal flexion today right away, syncing up with the breath. Inhale to drop the belly,
open the chest. And exhale to round through, drawing the
navel up chin to chest. Soften your gaze here or close your eyes
as you inhale, Cow Pose. And exhale, Cat Pose. Keep it going. Nice and slow here to start. Starting our Awaken practice with this spinal flexion, moving any stagnant energy or inviting any stagnant or stuck energy to move throughout our practice. On your next inhale, go ahead and come
to Tabletop Position. And then look
down at your hands. Spread the
fingertips super wide. Then you’re gonna
draw a little awareness in towards your center, activating your core by hugging
the low ribs up just a bit. Then slowly, nice and easy, holding on to this
connection to your midline, kick your right leg out. Dial your right toes down so we’re kind of lifting up
through the right inner thigh, and you can stay here,
inhaling deeply, exhaling completely, or we’re gonna add the
element of the left arm as Benji comes back to practice, sending the left
fingertips forward, left thumb up towards the sky. It’s as if you were kind of
shaking someone’s hand here. Already starting to
awaken the whole body, not just parts of the body,
but the whole body. Inhale in here. Exhale, draw it all in. Elbow comes in, knee comes in, and we round through the
spine just like Cat Pose. Inhale to extend. You’re not doing a lot
of these, stick with it. Exhale, round through. Last one, inhale, extend. Exhale, round through. Beautiful. Bring your left hand,
right knee back to the earth. Re-center, regroup. Find that Tabletop Position. And then when you’re ready,
hug the low ribs in. Find that connection
to your midline and begin to kick
your left foot out. Dial the left toes down. Left inner thigh
shines up towards the sky. We hold on to this connection
in our center, our core, waking up a little
bit of fire in the belly. And then here we go, option,
you can stay on both hands, or option to reach the
right fingertips forward. Right thumb towards the sky,
gaze straight down. Here we go, big inhale. Exhale, bring it in, rounding through
the spine nice and slow. Inhale to extend, spread the
fingers, spread the toes. And exhale, round it through, navel draws up, up, up. Inhale to extend, last one. Exhale, bring it all in, and return back to the table. Awesome work. Walk the hands
out a little bit wide. Rotate your upper
arm bones externally, so left upper
arm bone to the left, right upper arm
bone to the right. Curl the toes under,
take a deep breath in. And exhale, peel the hips up high, then send them back,
Downward Facing Dog. Claw through
the fingertips here. Make sure you’re
not holding the neck. Continue to hug the low ribs in, activating the abdominal wall. And then nice and easy, you’re gonna slowly bend
your right knee to center and turn to look
underneath your left arm. Big breath here in and out. Then drop the right heel, bend the left
knee as you bring it into the center of your mat. Peek at me if you need to. And then,
rotating in the spine here as you press into
both palms evenly, turn to look
underneath your right arm. Excellent, come back to center. Take a deep breath in. Exhale out through the mouth. Nice work.
Bend the knees, inhale. Carve a line with the nose. Look forward and exhale, make your way to the top. You can step, hop,
take baby steps. We’ll meet at the Forward Fold. Now take three
cycles of breath here, just letting the blood flow, inviting the nervous system to be calm. Finding your foot-to-earth
connection here. And then when you’re ready,
bend the knees generously. Belly comes toward
the tops of the thighs. Tuck your chin and roll it up. Press evenly through
all four corners of the feet as you stack up
through the spine. As you’re ready,
find that natural lift in the sternum, the heart. Relax your shoulders down,
Mountain Pose. Inhale in here. Long exhale,
awakening the breath. And on your next inhale,
let’s reach up. Reach for the sky,
big breath, big stretch. Exhale, Forward Fold. Inhale lifts you up halfway. Your version,
find that length in the neck. Exhale to soften and fold. Bend the knees, plant the palms, step one foot back,
then the other, Plank Pose. Find that core connection,
you got this. Inhale to look forward,
shift forward. Exhale, lower all the way
to your belly with control. On an inhale, lift up, Cobra. Can keep it nice
and soft and easy. Exhale to slowly release
forehead back down. Curl the toes under, here we go. Inhale in, exhale,
to press up Half Plank or power up full Plank. Downward Facing Dog. Inhale in here. Exhale out through the mouth. Good, bend the knees. Inhale to look forward. Exhale to step
or hop to the top. You can take
baby steps here, too. I’m a fan. From your Forward Fold, let your inhale
lift you up halfway. Tailbone reaches back, crown
of the head reaches forward. Exhale to soften and fold. Root to rise, here. Spread the fingertips, ground
through the feet, here we go. Big inhale as you
reach up towards the sky, maybe a slight backbend
here as you lift your heart. And then exhale, hands
come together and back down. Observe the breath here. Connecting this journey. Each day we turn a page
into the present moment, taking the themes of recognizing our focus on
setting an intention, and now integrating those things into the practice
of awakening the body, awakening the breath. And this idea that
we have the opportunity when we step on the mat to potentially awaken
anything that might have been asleep, dormant, something that’s
capable of being active but that has been inactive. Release your hands
gently to your sides. You’re gonna
step your feet wide, about as wide as the mat. I’m gonna turn this way. So, my number
one tip for awakening that which has
been lying dormant is this next move. If you’ve been in the community
for a while, you know it. It’s called
Knocking at Heaven’s Door. You’re gonna soften your knees. Careful not to
lock the knees here so that we can protect them. So, soft knees here to start, and you’re just gonna
start with a gentle sway. If this is new to you,
it might feel a little weird, but remember your
commitment to yourself, right? Show up with all you’ve got.
It’s okay to smile and have fun. You’re gonna start to
swing a little side to side with the arms,
soft bend in the knees. And then start
to really articulate a movement left and then right, and let your gaze and your
heart and your center of gravity kind of move with you. You can start to smack
your booty a little bit. Why not? (chuckles) And again, soft in the knees. And then traditionally, we
sync up with the breath here, with a nice, sharp exhale. But for now, Day 3, I just want you to
sync up with your breath in a way that feels good. It could be inhaling to one
side, exhaling to the other. It could just be
some full, deep breaths. If you need to sigh it out, trust me, you’ll
know if you need that, then take it, baby.
This time is for you. Moving back and forth, now starting to
pick up with speed. This requires a
little bit of discipline and a willingness
to stir the pot, to move the furniture around and wake up that which has been sleeping. Alright, keep it going for 10. Keep it going, nine. Pick up your pace, eight, seven, six, it’s okay
if you’re laughing. Five, four, three, two, and on the one,
start to slow it down, Knocking on Heaven’s Door. Alright, if you’re
practicing with someone and you’re kind of
giggling here, it’s okay, but let’s try to capture this
by bringing the feet together, really together,
palms together at the heart. Gaze down past your
nose or close your eyes and just notice how you feel. See if you can
feel any sensation that might have been stirred. We’re also inviting
the brain and the body to make this agreement
that our daily practice is not just about
gross movements, you know, these surface
level muscle-building, toning, trimming actions, although those are
awesome and important. But there’s this
whole inner world to prioritize, to awaken, and to pay attention to, because if we are not actively
paying attention to it, it can fall asleep. And when it falls asleep, it just reacts to
your external world. Just constant state of reaction. Whoa, okay bat
your eyelashes open. If you’re not already
at the top of your mat, go ahead and step there. Big inhale, let’s catch a wave.
Reach for the sky. Exhale, rain it down,
Forward Fold. Inhale halfway lift,
your version. Move with your breath. Exhale to soften
and fold it down. Plant the palms,
step the right foot back. Step the left foot back. Inhale to look forward,
shift forward, squeeze the elbows
into the side body. Exhale, lower all
the way to your belly. Inhale to lift up,
Bhujangasana, Cobra. Exhale to soften and release. Good, curl the toes under. You’re gonna press
to all fours, here. Inhale, kick the
right leg out again. Left arm forward. Inhale in. Exhale, you’re gonna
bend your right knee, bend your left elbow. Hug onto the midline. Maybe we reach back,
grab the top of the right foot. Now slowly begin to
kick your right foot out. Open up through
the left shoulder. Big breath in as
you look forward. And then exhale to release. Nice. Inhale, kick the left foot out. We can work on this
with just the lower body, opening the lower body,
playing here, kicking up. Otherwise, sending the
right fingertips forward. Bend your left knee,
bend your right elbow. Strong connection
to your core here, as you maybe reach back, grab the top of your left foot. Here we go. Inhale, opening as
you kick the left foot out towards the back edge of
your mat and open the chest, heart energy radiates forward. Nice, and then slowly release
with control best you can, right into Downward Dog. Plant the palms,
curl the toes under, lift the hips up
high and back. Nice work. Inhale in deeply here. Exhale, empty it
out through the mouth. Nice. Inhale, right leg lifts. Three-Legged Dog. Exhale, shift it forward. Squeeze the right knee up
into the chest as you do this, and then step it all the way up. Beautiful. Pivot on the
back foot this time. Take your time, front knee
bent over front ankle. Hands come to the waistline,
ground through the feet. Tuck the chin,
roll up to Warrior I. Front knee stays bent. Yeah, do a little hair toss,
check it out. Hug the low ribs in. Back toes are turned in, so we wanna
actively turn them in so that this left shin,
knee, femur, hip socket, all can snuggle in. That’s how we eventually
get the hips moving forward. Pull the right hip crease back. Front knee is still
over that front ankle. Hands can stay on
the waistline here or we’ll spread the fingertips,
inhale, rise up. Warrior I, Virabhadrasana I. Give yourself a
lot of space here. Open up through the shoulders, so imagine that big beach
ball up and overhead again. Great, head over heart, heart
over pelvis here, best we can. That’s what we’re working
towards from the inside out, this sensation kind of
guiding the way, right? Awakening is a process. It’s not something
like, check, I’m awake, although, well, no. Okay. Warrior I for one more breath.
Maybe inhale, you look up. Use your exhale to
slowly bring it back down into a nice, low lunge. You’re gonna slow and
steady pivot on the back foot. Bring your fingertips
down to the earth. Inhale, open the
chest to look forward. Exhale, plant the palms,
step it back. Go straight to Downward Dog
or take a little flow here, a little vinyasa.
It can be belly to Cobra, Chaturanga
to Upward Facing Dog. We’ll meet all together
now in that Downward Dog. Find that nice,
full breath here. And when you’re ready, inhale, lift the left leg
up high, Three-Legged Dog. Exhale, shift it
forward from center. Squeeze the left knee up
and in, and then step it up. Find your breath. When you’re ready,
pivot on the back foot. Keep those right toes turned in. Build it from the ground up. Pull the left hip crease back. Hands come to the waistline. Tuck the chin, roll up, keeping that front
knee over the front ankle. Strong legs. Good, hug the low ribs in. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Keep the hands on
the waistline, here, or with a big inhale,
spread the fingertips. So, active in the fingertips, reach up high towards the sky,
thumbs back, pinkies forward. Big beach ball up and overhead. Press into the outer
edge of your right foot. Sink a little deeper
into that front knee, front knee over front ankle. We’re working in that way,
working towards that. Maybe for this last breath, you draw some
energy up from the earth. Lift up from the pelvic floor, and then maybe take your gaze
all the way up towards the sky. Breathe in.
And then exhale, rain it down nice and
slow and with control, pivoting on the back foot. We say it all the
time here in the community, but how you move matters. It’s not just what you do,
but how you do it. So, moving with control,
that’s a great practice to really honor that. Inhale, open the chest,
look forward. Big hip stretch, here. Exhale, last time. Plant the palms, belly to Cobra, Chaturanga to Up Dog, or you can go
straight to Downward Dog. Move with your breath. Find what feels good. We’re gonna meet
in that Downward Dog. It’s the last one,
so make it awesome. When you get there, take the deepest
breath you’ve taken all day. Inhale. And exhale. Great, slowly
lower to the knees. Bring them together and
then send the hips back, dragging the
fingertips along your sides to fold into oneself here
in Balasana, Child’s Pose. When you land here, close
your eyes and count them out, three full breaths. If this shape is
not good for you, then make an adjustment, maybe coming to
your back or seated. Three full breaths. Noticing how they can move you. Maybe feeling the
skin of the back body stretch as you breathe in. Noticing the softening of
the torso as you breathe out. After your three breaths, slowly reach the arms back out towards the
front edge of your mat. Use this
hand-to-earth connection and this awareness of
your center of gravity to draw you back up. This time, we’re gonna
cross one ankle over the, one ankle over the other,
sorry, (chuckles) and then come through mindfully
using your hands to a seat. Then send your legs out long. Reach the fingertips forward, and here we go. Slow and with control,
nice and easy, you can point the toes. Sometimes that’s
a little bit easier. And just check
in with your core. Awaken the core nice and easy. Be kind if your legs fly up. Laugh, all good. Life is good. Nice and slow. When your back
finally kisses the mat, remember that
image of your yoga mat kind of rising up to
meet your back body. You can center
yourself on the mat. Then we’re gonna bring
just the right knee up, just the right knee.
Keep the left leg extended, but start to activate
through that left foot as if you were pressing
into an imaginary wall. Then rotate the right ankle
one way, and then the other. Take a deep breath in. Send that breath
down into your belly. And then on an exhale, you’re gonna
take your right knee and guide it across your body towards the left
side of your mat, coming into a Supine Twist. Go ahead and open up
through the right arm. You can take it all
the way out in extension or maybe bend the
elbow if that feels right. And then last but not least, take a deep breath in and exhale to turn
onto your right ear. Close your eyes and breathe. So much love for
the spine here with every conscious
breath here in the twist. There’s so much we can do
for the systems of the body and the balance, equilibrium of the inner world. It’s not always
Chaturangas and core workouts, although those are comin’! Some people are like, “Yay,”
some people are like, “No!” Trust me, trust yourself,
trust the process. Here we go, coming all
the way back to center. Right leg extends, and
we’ll bring the left knee in. Putting a little
rotation with the ankle one way and then the other. Keep a nice, active breath here. And inhale, breathe
deep into your belly and use your exhale to
gently guide your left knee across the body, over towards the
right side of the mat into your Supine Twist here. Again, left arm can
extend in full extension, or maybe you bend the elbow, eventually coming on to the left ear. Now try to soften your jaw,
soften your gaze, and breathe
down into your belly. So wonderful for
the digestive organs. Balancing all of
that stomach chi. So wonderful for the spine. Try to keep your
shoulders relaxed and listen to the
sound of your breath here for one more cycle. Great. From center, so from
a place of connection, start to bring it
all the way back in. We’re gonna hug both
knees up into the chest, now. And bring your hands,
your palms, rather, to your kneecaps, and you’re just gonna
slowly straighten the arms, draw your knees towards
the front edge of your mat. If you want to, you can kick
your feet a little bit here, just creating a little balance in the spine here. And then slowly allow
your feet to come to the earth. Extend one leg
and then the other. Hands are gonna come
gently to rest at your sides, palms face up. Close your eyes. ♪ Make a wish ♪ ♪ And blow out the candlelight ♪ I’m gonna stop there so I
don’t lose you on this journey. Take a second to
rest your sweet heart. Awakening is a process. Tomorrow, we’ll talk about, we’ll talk about activating. But today, may you
provide yourself the opportunity to just think about and meditate
on what it means to awaken, and what might be
calling or whispering your name from within to be awakened, and if nothing else,
we got a great stretch. We took care of our
body today, physical body. Life is good. Let’s bring the palms together, thumbs up to the third eye,
that inner teacher. Point of intuition. I love you. Thank you so much
for sharing your time and your energy with me and all of the folks practicing. Day 3 in the books. Take a deep breath in. And we finish with Namaste. (upbeat gentle music)

  1. Happy Day 3!! We are doing this! How are you feeling today?

  2. Laughing right now. Spent the whole session wondering “what is she talking about?” “What is this awakening?” At the end Adriene says something like “we focused on awakening, if nothing else your body got a great stretch” and I think “yes! For sure! At least there is that”. And then she drops the four letter word. From the heart, sweetly and without presumption: “I love you”. I start sobbing. And laughing. And think “oh, maybe this is the awakening part”.

  3. Thank You 🌻
    💫Namasté💫
    🌻💫🌻
    🌟

  4. Amazing Thank you for making this available for the world ❤

  5. this felt good after leg day

  6. Boyz II Men finish was amazing😆 Thank you for helping us heal❤

  7. Knocking at heaven's door stirred up my stomach; some air came up 👍🏽

  8. I enjoyed every single bit of the practice 🙂 thank you so much for creating and sharing this amazing content, dear Adriene!

  9. Reading the comments and I'm so glad to see I'm not the only big burly man doing yoga with Adrienne. Adrienne keep it up, you are beautiful and funny and your yoga is really helping me with addiction problems. Thank you for being so full of light and joy. Amen

  10. Done! 😀 Thank you, Adriene 🙏

  11. I made it to Day 3, yay!! The first day was super challenging, holding even the simplest of poses (even just sitting cross-legged) for an extended time. I hadn’t done yoga for a few weeks prior to this challenge… But I feel like the muscle memory in my arms and core is coming back, even on days 2 and 3! Adriene, thanks for providing such great motivation and guidance!

  12. I feel so light, and I realized that in trying to be the best version of myself in the New Year, and change, and be better, I lost my true self. But now she's awake, and ready for action! Knocking on Heaven's Door is some powerful stuff! Whoo!😝

  13. Thank you 🙂

  14. Thank you for video much appreciated

  15. I love this and you, adriene! Great way to start my day. <3

  16. Hey Adriene, I just want to pop on here and say how much good feelings and inner peace your yoga videos have brought me. Thank you!
    What you said about awakening, the inner world/dormant/reaction, that triggered a lot of thinking, I’m on my 1 month off journey to chase my dream, if I’m not successful I have to go back to a job that gives me no spiritual value, after 10 years of none stop working, I’m starting to feel the awakening of my inner heart, let me see what I can do to make the most of this month, to realize my dream

  17. Today I was feeling quite down, very easily irritated and battling intrusive thoughts. I decided I needed to get out my mat, Bergamot essential oil from my sis and cousin 🙂 and do this yoga practice. The moment we finished Knocking at Heavens Door I burst into tears. I needed that emotional release so badly, whether it was pent up trauma from travelling yesterday or hormones today I don’t know. I do know the release of those emotions was really what I needed. Yoga is a natural medicine and healer, it is truly magical! Thank you so much! Ps, I loved your singing, it was so beautiful. You didn't need to stop 🙂

  18. It's been great! Thank you for the good work and energy 🙂

  19. Really enjoying this! Thanks Adriene.

  20. Love that 90s break

  21. Phew! Rough day but paired this w/some elliptical HIIT beforehand. So glad I did. Ty Adriene for the giggles, serenade & as always, fantastic opening of inner self. Blessed Be to you and fellow practitioners of YWA: Home 💚💚

  22. Knocking on Heaven's Door – my fav!! I'm always so happy when that turns up in a session:) It's magic

  23. Day 3: Awakening – simply awesomely beautiful – thank you for the gift this day.

  24. Day 3! I even got my 18-year-old son to do the video with me. What an awesome experience to share with him. ☺️

  25. sore arms today but managed to get through it, the full moon helped 🙂

  26. Adriene you're fkng awesome. Complete with corny singing and all. Love your guidance and 30 day journeys.

  27. I'm on day 3 today 9 Jan having resisted the daily practice with gritted teeth when normally I practice each day anyway!!!! but I'm not judging myself at all, simply allowing the awakening & observing the resistance to "apparentl
    y" being told to do it vs choosing to! Thank you for your relentless compassion, humour and easy going but effective style Adriene. I may even see day 4 tomorrow 🙂 X Much love

  28. I started the year with having some sort of stress-related anxiety at work.. I had to go home. I just felt a rush through my body and a type of panic? I don't know, and my heart was pounding, and I was also so cold and freezing. I rested a bit at work and then went home for a couple of days. I'm back at work tomorrow and I'm hoping that the feeling will not come again. I'm scared. But now I'm back at the yoga at least and I hope it can help me. Thank yoy Adriene.

  29. Thank you I have started getting poses🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

  30. Just finished Awaken in front of my new 65” television (not big TV person but my husband felt the need to buy it this past Christmas 😉) it’s a beautiful day the sun is shining ☀️ and it feels good! Thank you again Adrienne for all you do for this troubled world we live in. I know you’ve helped me immensely and I am very grateful to you and Benji!
    Namaste~yogi 🤟🏻🧘🏻🕉

  31. Thank you Adriene for creating this beautiful practice for all of us. You are a gem in this world! xo 🙂

  32. I love the little reminders you send out during your yoga practice. One of the things I put on my vision board this year is to open all my chakras. Your statement of "awakening is a process" was such a great reminder.

  33. First, I started HOME late, then I got a fever and had to take a break for few days. But my intention was I ACCEPT so I accept. Excited to kick it in in my own pace 💪🏻 namaste 🙏🏻

  34. Loved this flow … making practice higher priority for you 73rd year. This one challenged me just the right amount. Thanks so much for continuing to create a positive space and your encouragement!

  35. I haven't been able to show up each day due to various reasons, but every time I do the practice you put up, I feel calm, relaxed and almost pain-free. You help me find the focus I often miss. Thank you, Adriene.

  36. So today my spine popped into place on several levels…. and man that cross position at the end sure stretched my breastmuscles… That HURT! In a good way ofcourse! Thanks, Adriene, see you tomorrow!

  37. Day 3 down!!! Just getting back to yoga. Thanks Adreian you have always been there for me!

  38. Day 3 done. It felt especially great since I’ve been sitting in university the whole day.

  39. I Awaken… the hidden playful me 🙃
    Totally loved this practice ❤️
    🙏 Namaste

  40. My back did a "crack crack crack" sound today 😀 I havent done yoga in years! Feels so good to be back!

  41. thank you adriene!!

  42. Oooh I found parts of this quite difficult physically – but boy am I awake now! When your body is shaking you know you're making a difference 🙂

  43. I'm a few days late to the party but I brought cake.

  44. Any tips on how to take pressure of wrists for downward dog? I try to spread my finger tips but can't seem to apply even pressure throughout the hand

  45. At the rate I'm going, I'm going to complete the 30 days in about 90 days, but I'll get 'er done!

  46. It is awesome !

  47. can't believe I got up at 7 am ahead of my alarm to do this. it's been so good too!

  48. Once again I was too afraid to do this 5 days ago. Is that weird? Then I got the flu. Anyhow, here I am, still a little sick (and afraid) but I did it!

  49. 24:08 I love it! I kept singing.

  50. This series has been such a blessing to be going through as I start the year. Thank you!

  51. Day 3 – Awaken. That supine twist really awoke my entire flow today! Can’t wait to practice Day 4!

  52. Thank you so much! Knocking on heavens door was so fun but also very helpfull and stress relieving!

  53. Thank you Adriene, I started doing the home yoga. My husband has been recently been diagnosed with ALS. It has helped me tremendously with my anxiety & stress. Thank you for having these yoga practices available!

  54. I have never in my life completed a "30 days *insert something*", but this time I have decided to actually follow through!! And I'm so happy about that. Today when the outro came on and Adriene said "namaste" I actually got goose bumps cause I'm so glad to be on this journey. Adriene really is such a kind and loving mentor. THANK YOU!!

  55. Today was a little difficult for me. My wrist has been hurting and some of these poses had too much weight on it. Any recommendations for doing these poses in a way that doesn't put so much pressure on the wrist? I would love to hear ideas!

  56. Thanks for love and inspiration, Adrienne, you are the greatest present to all people, who knows you!!! I am so happy of yoga with you and thousands of people 🍀namaste

  57. Adrienne , you are truly an inspiration and very much appreciated! You have a warrior soul and a heart of beauty and love 💗 Bless your beautiful soul, sending lots of love from Ontario Canada 🇨🇦

  58. Thank you for these videos. I started a few days later, but I’ve started. Yes, my body has awaken. I’m a little sore this morning, but in general I feel better and have more energy. I also feel I’m standing taller.

  59. Is it important doing the yoga in the morning?

  60. I loved this practise.. you are the best Adriane 💕

  61. Aways a joy to do yoga with Adriene.

  62. Day 3 and feeling free!! It's amazing… Feeling the pain though power-housing through and having fun! Lost my balance a few times… Gave myself quite the giggles 🙂 thanks for the smiles.

  63. Day 3 . Love you too

  64. I'll admit: i didn't want to come to the mat today. I dealt with a migraine for the majority of the day plus it's the first day of Shark Week™ so didn't feel like doing anything. But I had promised myself to show up, so I did. I made some adjustments for personal comfort but I got through it. And I'll be honest, I fell over trying to get into child's pose!

  65. Smack DAT ass LOL Namaste!♥️✌🏼😆💪🏼🙏🏻

  66. I did this challenge last January and was only a few days off. This year, I've taken on a new school teaching and had every intent to stay up with this because I haven't been able to get any exercise because of my teaching load. Well, it's technically day 10 and I'm only on day 3. BUT, I got on the mat. It's a Friday night and this was just what I needed to finish out the week. Thank you!

  67. These are the nicest youtube comments I’ve ever read. The practice helped me cry today. It’s true there is a beautiful community of people here and we all seem to share the same struggles / feelings at different times. Thanks everyone for posting.

  68. Thank you💜

  69. I'm going out of order, with this Home journey, but I just loved Day 3, it is exactly what I needed after a long week and to start the weekend!

  70. Me: Raise your hand if Knocking those doors makes you feel alive!!
    Also me: raises hand

  92. Thank you!

  93. I love your practice, especially how you take time to explain the importance of being mindful and lostening to your body. I've tried other practices, but yours is the only one that I feel at peace with.

  94. Greetings from Outback Australia! No, I'm not burning but experiencing drought, daily dust storms and 45C + temperatures. My meetings with you have lapsed for almost 6 weeks and we I joined in I felt incredible rusty and unfit, however you had a beautiful way to start 2020 and I felt inmedially encouraged and supported. It is like you knew exactly where I am at, and you did! I'm grateful for your talent and your generosity.

  95. This was amazing 💚💚💚

  96. Lovely! Thanks 🙏

  97. My heart is filled with joy. Thank you <3
