Meditation for Self Love | Yoga With Adriene


– Hi everyone.
Welcome to Yoga with Adriene. I’m Adriene, this is Benji. And today,
we have a sweet little meditation for self love. So hop into something
comfy and let’s get started. (upbeat music) Alrighty my friend, we’re going to begin in a
comfortable seat of your choice. You can also do
this video lying down. I want you to feel comfortable. And go to a position, come into a
position that feels good, that feels supported. So, I’m sitting up on a bolster so that I can feel nice and
comfortable sitting up tall, but you do you. If you’re sitting up, align
your head over your heart, and your heart over your pelvis. If you’re lying down,
tuck you chin, so that your
neck is nice and long. Then let’s bring our
left hand to our heart space and our right
hand to the low belly. Gently allow your
eyelids to get heavy, close your eyes and baby, let’s take this time to reset, reconnect, remember that we are worthy, worthy of love. As we begin to tune in here, trust that you
made the right decision selecting this video, carving out just
a little bit of time and space to
consider or reconsider where you are right now. And not only reconnect
or remember with this fact, in my mind this truth,
that you are worthy of love. But perhaps we open to
taking it one step further, and remembering or reconnecting
with the fact or the truth that you are love. Take a deep breath
in wherever you are. And a long breath
out wherever you are. And now maybe
with the eyes closed, if they are not already,
take another deep breath in. Wherever you are, just whatever’s
going on with you today. And a long breath out. So I’m definitely
rolling out the red carpet here for you to just come as you are, with however you’re feeling. And then hopefully we
can use this gentle process either as preventative care
or a little rescue remedy for you to know and feel
that you are worthy of love, and that you are in fact,
the love itself. Inhale in. Now on your next exhale, just allow the hands to
rest wherever it feels good. Gently at your sides, maybe palms on the
knees or the thighs, maybe fingertips
resting gently on the ribs if you’re on your back. Use the sound of my
voice to guide you here, so you can keep
your eyes closed. Relax your tongue
down in your mouth. Take a deep breath in. Fill your belly with air. And as you exhale,
relax your shoulders. Now starting at your feet, send your
awareness to your feet, and just slowly
taking a gentle body scan noticing as you go
up through the body, all the way to your crown, noticing if there
are any tight places or places that you
might be holding or gripping. See if you can detect
any places in the body physically or energetically, where you might
be able to soften, blanket a little love. Relax. Inhale in deeply. And exhale completely. Continuing with the
nice conscious breath. Seeing if you can,
whatever this means to you, breath like you love yourself. Inhaling lots of love in. And exhaling lots of love out. Now if you stumbled
across some areas, either specifically physically, maybe in the shoulders,
the low back, the hips, or more energetically,
emotionally, maybe in the heart space or
even in the head, the neck, if you stumbled across a
place that has felt tight or is tight, congested, use your breath,
this loving inhale and this loving exhale, to soften that area,
to smooth it out. Send some love to that area. Breathing in deep into
the belly as you inhale. Softening, blanketing
the body in love as you surrender on the exhale. Continue to gently
deepen your breath, using it as a tool to reside in
the present moment. Notice the
thoughts that come up. Acknowledge them
and use the mantra inhale lots of love in. And exhale lots of love out. Anchor the brain to refocus on love. You can use the mantra inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. In repetition here. And you can use it off the mat when you wake up in the morning, and before you
go to bed at night. Inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. Inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. Continue with your breath, repeating the mantra
a couple more times, ingraining it, remembering it, taking it as a tool to reset and reconnect with the truth that
you are worthy of love, and that in fact, you are love. If you’re on your back,
tuck your chin again, lengthen through
the back of the neck. If you’re seated,
use your next inhale to lift your heart
space a little bit more. Inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. Inhale lots of love in. Exhale lots of love out. As you’re ready, gently bring the palms together, Anjali Mudra at the heart. Take a hot second,
notice how you feel. And as you’re ready, start to lift the corners
of the mouth and smile, even if it’s a fake smile. Allow your smile to
grow a little bit bigger. Take deep breath in. A long breath out. Flutter the eyelashes open. Bring the thumbs up
to the third eye, quietly whisper, I am worthy of love. I am worthy of love. Don’t be shy. Quietly whisper, affirm, I am love. I am love. And then allow your
head and your hands to gently fold in,
bowing towards your heart. Thank you so much for
sharing a little time with me and with people
all over the world. You are not alone.
We’re all in this together. Let’s take one more deep inhale. Breathing in love. Exhale, breathing out yup, you guessed it, love. Thanks everyone. Let me know how you’re feeling in the comments

  1. Could you benefit from creating more space in your life to rest, relax, be still, go for a walk without your phone, or commit to a daily practice on the mat?
    It's 13 minutes, baby. Take it.

  2. One of the most beautiful meditation sessions I have experienced. Thank you Adriene for reminding me that I am worthy of love and that I am love.

  5. This helped me wow thank you… my ego did not wanna smile at the end but me pushing thru it ugh just wat I needed ❤️

  6. The music in this video reminded me of "Adore You" by Miley Cyrus… anyone else? Maybe just a coincidence, but I thought it was pretty appropriate.

    I, too, cried while doing this meditation. Thank you, Adriene, as always, for another beautiful video!

  7. This is such a powerful practice, I keep coming back to it. Cried by the end of it..my inner child is so grateful for this. Thank you Adriene ❤️🦋

  9. So….

    1. I got so relaxed that I felt like a led weight when I brought my hands to my heart.

It's frustrating

Loved this meditation at first I thought this is going to feel like forever sitting and doing nothing which I find hard but the time went so quick and it was so relaxing and gave me time for self love while my 7 month old napped as mamas all around the world need some time for self love and care. Thank you Adriene ❤️

  52. <3

  53. I feel so refreshed now! I have not felt liked this in a while. I was stressed out about life and my surroundings, you and the yoga helped me tremendously. I felt unworthy but I feel worthy again. Thank you Adriene, sending you lots of love💕

  54. Such a beautiful meditation, just what I needed today. Made me cry.x

  55. needed this one !!

  56. Yep, this made me a little weepy. Thank you for this one, Adriene. I have a hard time loving myself and during this meditation I realized that I am the first person who has to love myself before I expect anyone else to. Some healing there. ❤️

  57. Fabulous

  58. I have been going through a very rough break up in the last week and this has helped me to further realize that I am my own person and that I don't need others to be happy. I am worthy of love on my own 💖

  59. Thank you so much for creating this space and container. This is the second time I've done this meditation and I started crying right away. lol Laughed a little too. I didn't even know I needed that amazing release. But I left this meditation feeling lighter and fuller, love and rejuvenated to embody that love even more than I did when I stepped onto the mat. Adriene, you a wonder. Namaste. <3

  60. Definitely needed a moment to love myself.💕

  61. 💕💕💕

  62. It's comforting to know that even if I wouldn't have anyone by my side, I would still have you to be my safe place. Thank you, Adriene. ❤️🤗

  63. Also, I love your meditations. They are great when I'm feeling out of energy and just want to clean my headspace without moving.

  64. A great meditation – thank you so much! 💕

  65. Thanks for being consistent in sharing your yogic energy on YouTube it's so useful! 🙂

  66. Day 264🙏🏾 This right here is going to be an everyday practice ✨

  67. Fantastic. Thank you..

  68. Wow. I let my guard down this morning, the second time I’ve meditated with this video, and I cried. This is the first video in 2 years of YWA that I’ve let go. Namaste Adriene. 🇨🇦

  69. Beautiful💕

  70. I'm so thankful that I found your videos. They have been helping my yoga so much, and this meditation really opened up feelings that I have been hiding inside for years. ❤️

  71. I love how i though i was gonna be the only one shedding a tear or two after listening to your voice. I love how we all needed ourself to tell ourselves that we indeed are worthy of love. We bring ourselves down so much on a daily basis, calling ourselves names and so on… But we are worthy of love and lots of it. And perhaps if we breath in all the love we can, the idea of us being "Love" wouldn't be too foreign. Adriene, gracias mi amor. <3

  72. Love 🙂

  73. I love this ! I Will be doing this every morning meditation is the key to everyday life. Thank you so much !

  74. Thanks for this video, your videos. I watch this one for the second time and it really helps me calming me down, focus on myself and breathe. I do yoga and meditation only with your channel at least twice a week so thanks again 😀😀

  75. I aspire to be as peaceful and calm as your pupper 💛

  76. Thank you, Adriene, for spreading the gospel of self-love. This meditation heals my heart. You are such a blessing to this world. Thank you for all the love you give to me and to others. Namaste.

  77. I feel more whole and grounded and relaxed and worthy of love! Thank you Adriene! Keep doing what you’re doing!

  78. Had awful anxiety before this meditation. After doing this it has totally gone 💕 love you so much Adriene I cant tell you how much your yoga helps me xxx

  79. Amazing! Just what I needed 💕🙏🏼 Thanks so much Adriene

  80. This one got me. I too began crying. I’ve realized how sad and stressed I’ve been. My 3rd grade classroom has been incredibly difficult this year and I kept thinking that it’s because of me and my actions. It might be, but life is a 2-way street. It has really brought me down and I’ve felt depleted in my love and kindness of my students, but more importantly, love of my self. It’s exhausting. I needed this meditation to remind myself to love again. Even if it’s for me. By taking care of myself, maybe I’ll get back on track and love these little kiddos again. I so want to. I don’t like feeling this way and the students shouldn’t have a teacher that isn’t 100%. I hope to get back. This one I’ll be practicing a lot.

  81. Thankyou, a! Love u, namaste

  82. Hey Adriene, I absolutely love your sessions. Is there any chance that you could do a video for people with M.E. and others with restricted movement/energy. Thanks x

  84. This made cry… happy tears:)
    Thank you Adriene <3

  85. You're a light ❤️ thank you x x x

  86. I feel hopeful. Wistfully hopeful

  87. I really needed this. I’ve been having so many negative thoughts lately and comparing myself to others and this video helped release some of that negativity. I cried at the end of this but it was tears that brought relief to my heart.

  88. Wonderful <3

  89. wow 💗💗💗
