Wild Thing – Foundations of Yoga


– Hello everyone and welcome
to Yoga With Adriene. I am your host, Adriene. Happy Halloween. Today we’re going to
learn Wild Thing pose. Let’s get started. Alright, so to begin we’re going to start in a side plank on the right side. Spreading through the right palm coming onto the outer
edges of the feet here. You can stack the feet
if you’re feeling brave or put one foot in front of the other. Press away from your yoga mat. Everyone hug your hips up,
up, up towards the sky. Find your strength here,
connect to your strength. Then we’ll slowly come to side plank here lifting the left fingertips up high, extension through the crown. Here we go, Wild Thing. Left toes, with the ball-joint of the left big toe touches the earth. We spiral the hips up towards the sky, straighten through the right leg. Left fingertips sweep up and over head and we find an Upward Facing Dog sesation in the torso. Find your breath. Find extension, lift your heart, keep hugging the hips in
and up towards the sky. Find that lift. So we can also be on the
sole of the left foot here. Lots of options. Deep breath in, deep breath out. One more breath, you got
it. Play, lift your heart. And then exhale. We’ll
slowly lower the hips down. Swing the legs to the opposite side and be sure to do the same thing that you did on one side
on the other. Or else. Alright my friends, that was Wild Thing. Good job. Hope you have an
awesome and safe Halloween. We love you. Please keep sharing the Yoga With Adriene
channel with your friends and your neighbors and your
family and your enemies. Have fun trick-or-treating
and I’ll see you next time. Namaste.

  18. I love that you showed this variation for entering into wild thing. I've tried it the "traditional way" from downward facing dog and didn't feel confident making the transition. I believe I'll be able to do this transition confidently :-). TFS and Happy Halloween!

  37. Hey Adriene. I love your videos. Wondering…what kind of lens do you and your camera crew use for wide angles?
    In fact, which camera do you use?
    Thanks so much. Looking forward to more fun, feel-good flows from you!

  38. I love all your videos! My little ones enjoy them too and try some poses but don't have the balance yet. Have you ever thought of doing videos for kiddos? Or any suggestions?

  39. We are almost at 1 million! Get it, girl!

  40. Hello Adriene,       

    I would like to know if you can teach us some Kundalini Yoga and possibly create some routines. As well as the difference between Kundalini and Posture style yoga. Thanks for the great vid's and keep up the good work.

    Sincerely,

    Anthony Galvez

  41. Your videos are always so fun and light. I helped a stranger pick out a yoga mat at the mall the other day. She asked for instructors so I sent her along to you. I hope she finds you and I wish her well, as I likely will never see her again. Thank you for sharing your gift with the masses. Namaste 🌻

  42. Hi Adriene. Love the video as always. One request: Instead of saying "yoga robot", could you please say "yog-bot" hahaha

  43. Thanks for being a fun yoga teacher 🙂

  44. spooky 😉 you're so darn cute Adriane

  45. sorry if this was answered before!! but I was wondering what type of yoga you practice?? I want to dive more into the yoga world and I thought I should pick up a book on it, but there are so many different variations!! I don't know where to start 😁

  46. I am totally going to focus on foundations! love your videos. thanks for sharing your talents.

  47. Hahaha, Share with your enemies. I did the one pose and got out of breath! Love it and all you share with us Adrienne. Happy Halloween!

  48. Omg! I felt like, I was floating!!

  49. Thank you so much for your time and effort. You make our lives better. And, your sense of humor is very refreshing! 🙂

  50. Thanks for sharing 🙂 I felt the fire in my side body! Can you share the benefits of this pose?

  51. hahahha

  52. I want to thank you again for making your videos accessible to Deaf people (by adding captions). I appreciate your effort!

  53. Hey adrienne! I've been doing the 30 day challenge! I think your amazing! Moving with such grace❤️ I was wondering if there was other workouts you do other than yoga???

  54. loved the guest appearance by the Great-tailed Grackles in the background! Your videos are just the best, thanks so much!! xo

  55. I sincerely hope you never stop doing videos~ Your videos make my week!!

  56. thank you so much Adriene! I'm from Sweden. I have been following your videos for over a year now. I'm struggling with some breathing issues. I think it's stress and it's becomes anxiety after a while. It feels like I'm not getting enough of air into my lunges. My inhale is far longer than my exhale. Do you know some magic trick?
    Much love back to you for all your love to us all around the world 💞

  57. hey i have a many questions but today my ques is can i do yoga at night becoz i have not time in the morning and another ques is that when i do yoga i soo tired can i take a rest between yoga and thank u soo much for the support plz reply me soon as early as possible

  58. I always wanted to try Wild thing but it always seemed more complicated than it really is (now i know that duuh:D) Could you possibly do Foundations of yoga about Camel pose,its a real struggle for some reason. Namaste! 💖

  59. What's the meaning of the symbol on your t-shirt?

  60. Hi Adriene! I want to thank you for all the workouts that you've gifted to us! I have a quick question for you. Whenever I do anything that puts a lot of weight on my arms (long sessions of cat cow, plank, etc) I develop some pain and irritation in my elbows. Do you have any advice for taking care of your joints? What about if you're overweight, does that change the way you approach a workout?

  61. Great shirt! Wondering what colour it is… Also I wanna request a "Yoga for when you're bloated" video for when you've been out eating too much and still want to do a little bit of yoga before you go to bed 😀 Love you Adriene <3

  62. Hello! I am an undergraduate nursing student from a university in New Jersey. I am currently conducting a study on the relationship between yoga practice and stress. If you are a student, please consider taking my survey at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7P56N3Y Thank you so much in advance!

  63. Love this pose, definitely gonna add it to the routine. Thanks Adriene!

  64. Is there a difference between wild thing and rock star?

  65. My friend just told me about you. I can't wait to try out some of your routines. I really want to change the negative connotation of veganism and yoga for males.

  66. Such a beautiful pose. I love how this video was filmed.

  67. I really love this one pose video… they are fun, short and allows to focus on the body in relation to the pose. Thank you!!!! you are such a great teacher. Many blessings to you so we can continue to be blessed with you. love love love

  68. Great video! Thanks girl 😉😘

  69. Very cool

  70. I hate this….how….just how

  71. This pose is so graceful ❤
    I am happy and full of gratitude I discovered your channel ! I practice 2 or 3 times a day, I love your energy and positivity, thank you so much Adriene for sharing those with the world ! Namaste

  72. Does it make any difference if we lock our arms in our elbows here or do we have to be careful not to do it (like in many asanas)?

  73. Funny and lovely and so clearly explained.

  74. Wow — I watched this when my laptop was wonky and the visuals jumped through it super fast but the audio was normal. It was just like you'd see on a horror movie. I thought that was the theme, but I found it weird nobody had commented about that. Then when your next video I tried was also sped up to a way-too-fast pace, I knew it was my computer and not the scary theme of halloween.

  75. Stacking one foot in front of the other is NOT good Yoga form; that's a body flow cop out. If the yogi isn't strong enough for full side plank, no way should they even attempt the rest of this.

  76. this gave me the giggles.

  77. I am definitely in search of some wrist strengthening practices. When I tried this on my right (dominant side) I thought my poor little wrist was going to crumble. The left side was manageable. Halp 🙏🏻

  78. XD Love it!

  79. I'm here because of the e-mail "Who wants a dull life" and the video "Yoga for a dull moment". Loved it! I've been following the monthly calendars and that's a good way to get to know the videos I didn't know yet (for one reason or another…). What about the cameo appearance from the crows in 1:58? LoL (Perhaps they're just innocent birds, but I like to think they're crows :p). Hope you have a great time in Tulum. I lived in Oaxaca for 2 months in 2012, and loved it! Saludos, y que te vaya bien! Namastê!

  80. UUUuuuuUu 🦇🦇🐧🐧

  81. 🐲

  82. Kiss on that navel.

  83. Namaste brilliant ! I like how there was even a crow and the vanish
