Yoga For a Broken Heart – Unconditional Love


Hello my friend. Today’s practice will help
aid in healing a broken heart. It will help to lift a heavy heart by nourishing the physical
and emotional and spiritual body pertaining to your heart space. We’ll start in extended
child’s pose nice and easy. Rest your forehead on the mat and knees nice and wide. Stretch your fingertips up and just begin
to relax in that heart space. The name of the game today really is unconditional love.
And I support you in your practice and I encourage you to give yourself permission to just feel
whatever the heart feels like today. Sometimes we must come a little closer to the heartache,
step into it and feel it with a certain openness and maybe a softness or tenderness. Take this
time for you. You might gently rock the head a little side
to side. You might call an intention into your practice, maybe it’s just that unconditional
love, forgiveness, courage. And take your intention with you and we’ll lift up to all
fours for a little cat cow. So definitely move softly in and out of things today. You
can keep the eyes close and I’ll do my best to guide you with my voice. Begin to tap into the breath. You might ask
yourself what kind of breath or breathing today will bring your heart peace. Deep breaths,
soft breaths, fire breaths, ujjayi breaths. Begin to stretch your body, maybe you shake
the hips a little side to side. You might crawl the toes under or you might come forward. So we begin to improvise from that cat cow
and check in. Continue to deepen the breath, and without any strict rules or obligations
here we’ll just explore the body, expanding awareness, maybe stretching the calves if
they’re sore. Checking with the neck, the jaw. And then when you’re ready, we’ll walk
the palms out and crawl the toes under and come into a nice downward facing dog. Pedal it out and then melt your heart back.
Again, ask yourself what kind of breath will bring your heart peace here. Then when you’re
ready, we’ll take a nice slow walk up towards the front edge of the mat. Forward fold. Walk the feet and hip with the part here.
Keep it soft to bend in the knees. And then find what feels good. Close your eyes, you
can walk the fingertips left to right. You can grab the elbows rock a little side to
side. Breath into the lower back body, then release the arms. And when you’re ready, inhale
lift to that flat back position. Tend to yourself. Hug the ribs in, draw the shoulders away,
elbows back. Find strength as you lengthen to the crown of the head. Careful not to lock
the knees. On an exhale, slide it down. Let’s try it again, inhale. Halfway lift, use your
breath out to float it down. And then we’ll continue just a couple more times in your
own time. Palms can be on the shins or even fingertips on the mat. You can mix and match
this and move with your breath. Then we’ll walk the feet together. And in
your own time, slowly roll up. Come all the way to standing. Feel the soles of your feet
on the earth as you lift up through the center channel. Lift your heart and begin to open
up softly through the neck. Draw circles with the nose. Nod the head. Then we’ll draw the
palms together at that heart space. Lift your sternum to your thumbs. Relax your
shoulders down and remember your intention. Your practice has your back, you can lean
into it, you can trust it. Ready, here we go. Using the breath, we’ll begin to find
the soft bend in the knees. And when you’re ready, inhale reach the arms all the way up
and overhead full body stretch. On the exhale, bend your elbows, open your
heart and thumbs back. Good, inhale reach it up and exhale all the way down forward
fold. Inhale halfway lift, exhale bow. Inhale, reach for the sky press into your feet. Exhale,
bend the elbows and thumbs back. Inhale, reach it up. Exhale, hands to heart. Beautiful.
Inhale, reach it up. Again, exhale. Open your heart, bend the elbows
and thumbs back. Inhale, reach for the sky. Exhale fold. Inhale, halfway lift and move
with your breath. Exhale fold. Then take your time, we’ll step both feet back to come to
a plank. Stimulating all the [notties 00:07:12], the energetic systems in the body, pressing
away from the earth. Pressing away from your yoga mat with your palms. Then keep the knees lifted or you can lower
the knees here. Walk the wrist underneath the shoulders and we’ll pull the elbows back.
Come on to the belly and inhale. Open your heart in cobra. Now we’ll find a little wave
in the spine here moving with the breath. And then we’ll curl the toes under, press
up strong to that plank, you got it. And then to downward facing dog. Inhale, lift the right leg up high. Use an
exhale to open up through that right hip. Maybe move the right toes ankle around. And
then we’ll squeeze the right knee up and in towards the heart shifting up into our lunge.
Lower the back knee, then we’ll swim the fingertips around to interlace behind the tail. Stack front knee over front ankle and lift
your heart. Hug the inner thighs towards in bed line, you might sink a little deeper,
you might not. Breath into the lungs, then release the arms back down. And we’ll shift
the hips back rocking onto the right heel, right toes up towards the sky. Then rolling through back to our lunge, we’ll
plant the palms and step it back to plank. Find your breath, take a vinyasa here or feel
free to skip it and go straight to downward facing dog. In down dog, we’ll take a deep
breath in and lift the left leg up high. Open it up for one breath here. Then when you’re
ready, bend that left knee and squeeze it up and in towards your heart center. Step it up into your lunge, lower the back
knee and check it out. Pull the left hip crisp back when you’re ready, interlace the fingertips
behind. We work on balance and stability here. We keep the heart lifted, the neck long. Find
places to lift but also places to ground. Then gently release and we’ll pull it back
coming on to the left heel. Beautiful. Then shifting back to your lunge. We’ll step it
back to plank and take that vinyasa. Move through it, breath into it. Downward facing
dog. From here we can repeat the slow walk up towards
the front that we did before or we can bend the knees generously and hop up towards the
front. Inhale halfway lift, exhale fold. Inhale, reach up towards the sky. Exhale, bend the
elbows and thumbs back. Inhale reach, exhale hands to heart. Here we go, inhale reach it
up. Exhale, bend the elbows and thumbs back. Inhale reach, exhale fold. Inhale halfway lift, exhale soft and then
bow. Step or hop it back to plank. Take your vinyasa or skip it. Together we’ll meet in
downward facing dog. Inhale, lift the right leg up high. Exhale, step up into your lunge.
Lower the back knee, take your time really building from the ground up supporting yourself.
Then take just a moment to interlace the fingertips, open your heart. Then we’ll reach the fingertips
forward up and back. Big breath in. Exhale and bend the elbows, thumbs back. Inhale,
look up and reach. Exhale, bending the elbows. Inhale lift, exhale surrender. Inhale lift,
exhale fold. Awesome. Coming back to child’s pose. Notice how you
feel. Remember, sometimes we must come closer to it and really feel it with the tenderness
and an openness so that we can process and find what feels good. Stay in child’s pose
a little longer if you like. Otherwise, we’ll make our way back to down dog. Optional vinyasa
here, shifting our weight forward. Moving through
and we’ll meet in downward dog. On a big breath in, lift the left leg up high.
Exhale, step it up into your lunge. Lower the back knee. Find your foundation, interlace
the fingertips and open the chest. Then when you’re ready, reach the fingertips up in overhead.
On an exhale, bend the elbows, thumbs back. Inhale, reach it up. Squeeze the inner thighs
together. Exhale, open. Inhale, reach, lengthen. Exhale, open. Soft neck. Inhale, reach it
up. And exhale, flow it down. Awesome. Step the back to meet the front. Take your
forward fold. Then inhale halfway lift. Exhale bow. This time we’re going to slowly inch
the feet out so that we can drop the hips down into a yoga squat. So in yoga we talk
about how we store a lot of emotions in the hips. So just notice. You can sit up on a block or you can draw
the palms together. The heels can be lifted or lower. We get down low here. And we try
to even in this deep yoga squat. Breath deep and somehow, someway lift our hearts, open
our hearts. Stay in the yoga squat or take a moment to
play here. I’m going to do a little handstand play. Reminding myself to smile, to maybe
turn my perspective upside down. You do whatever it is that you want here something playful
or maybe just staying in that squat still with the breath. And after a couple of moments
of smiling or playing or whatever it is you’re feeling. We’ll come to a nice seated position. Go ahead and bring the soles of the feet together
and the knees nice and wide, baddha konasana. Interlace the fingertips around the toes,
ground down and lift your heart up. Inhale in, exhale lion’s breath tongue out. Repeat
that if it feels good, nice cleansing breath. And then we’ll take it into a gentle forward
fold. We connect with your breath as you slowly
roll up. We’ll transition to all fours, take your time. When you’re ready, go ahead and
extend the right leg out long here. Walking the palms forward a little bit. Then we’ll
bring that right knee all the way up and in. Coming into a one legged pigeon shape here.
Rolling up through the spine and then go ahead and rock on to your right hip here. Keep a
brightness in the right foot as you reach your fingertips towards the front left corner
of your mat. Stay connected to the top of the back foot
and breath. Then slowly we’ll lift back up, curl the back toes under and comeback to all
fours. And we’ll repeat on the other side. Extending the left leg out this time, coming
into that one legged pigeon shape and finding your foundation. Lifting up through the heart
and breath, breath, breath. And then shifting on over towards the left hip. Fingertips reaching
out towards the front right corner of the mat. You may rest on the forearms here. Breath. Life is good. Your yoga practice has your
back. Gently unravel, curl the back toes under. Come to all fours. And we’ll inhale reach
the right fingertips forward. Exhale, bring them in underneath the bridge of the left
arms. We’ll coming into a little twist here for the upper back body. The left hand might
reach up towards the front edge of your mat or maybe up towards the sky. Close your eyes
and breath. Use an exhale to gently unravel and then repeat
the same thing on the other side. This time with the left fingertips going in underneath
the bridge of the right arm. Close your eyes, find what feels good and breath. Use an exhale to gently unravel. Come back
to plank and take one final vinyasa. Strengthening and moving through it. In downward facing
dog, take a deep breath in and a long exhale out through the mouth. Repeat a couple of
times. And we’ll slowly lower the knees, cross the ankles and come through to flat back. Bring the hands behind the thighs and begin
to rock, front to back a couple of times. Here massaging the spine, maybe the toes touch
behind, maybe not. Stick with your breath. Your breath is an amazing tool. Stick with
the self love here, the good vibes. And notice how you feel. We’ll get situated on the mat, bring the knees
up. Left hand to heart, right hand to belly. Walk the feet out towards the edge of your
mat so that your knees can fall in gently together. The belly softens, the ball of the
pelvis softens. And you can close your eyes here. Here we take some deep expensive meditative
breaths, feeling the belly, feeling the lungs. Feeling the heart center with our breath. Me and my friend, you might feel a little
emotion here. You might bring your right hand up over your head. You might begin to soften
the breath and just give thanks for this moment. Then slowly we’ll begin to shift to one side
using the bottom arm as a pillow. We come into fetal position. Embryo pose, our first
yoga position ever. A pose of comfort, of love. It’s an honor practicing with you and sharing
the tools of yoga. Thank you for sharing your heart with me and for allowing me to share
mine with you. Take good care. Namaste.

  1. This is always a bad week for me it would have been my moms' birthday yesterday and my brothers' tomorrow . We were 15 months apart and l haven't seen him since 1974. I miss him every single day and want him back even if it was only in my dreams. Thank you for this practice even though I am typing this with a snotty nose and dripping tears. My heart truly goes out to anyone who feels this way as all you long for is first yoga pose. ❤️

  2. Thank you Adrienne. It's a tough time for me. Having someone walk away because they can't handle my tough upbringing and horrid past experiences, and can't see past it to be with who I am today; a strong, determined and kind person. I know I'm worthy of love and my past doesn't define me. I will still remain to make others smile and know their worth. Thank you for bringing Yoga into my life, I really needed this flow. Namaste x

  3. I really needed this practice. Today, I miss my dog who recently died in a very brutal and sudden way. I felt overwhelmed and didn't know what to do with my emotions. This practice set me free. As soon as I started, I felt tears prickling at my eyes, and the music with the piano and violin did it for me. It helped me tremendously. Thank you, Adriene, for everything you do ~

  4. Thank you for this practice Adrienne. My heart is broken and think it's going to take a while to repair. Your gentle and healing practices give me 20 minutes of togetherness and long-term strength in a dark time. Thank you. xx

  5. Adriene, I have been doing your videos for a few years now and they have really helped me develop a sense of empowerment and strength within myself. Today, I am struggling to deal with very new, raw grief after a loved one passed from a car accident. This video challenged me come closer to my grief, and find the strength that comes with letting oneself feel vulnerable – to truly feel the way my heart was feeling today. It wasn't easy, and boy did this practice stir up a lot of emotion. But it was so needed and I'm very grateful for your guidance. Although my heart has a lot of mending to do, it'll be in peace and gratitude. Namaste xx

  6. Hard to breathe in between crying the entire video. Much love

  7. ❤️❤️❤️

  8. The past few hours have been extremely difficult. Thank you for this practice and for your kind heart – I feel much calmer for the time being. It helped knowing that, besides speaking with friends, I had somewhere that I could go to tend to my mind and body. Namaste <3

  9. I needed this. Thank you

  10. Day 15 of March

  11. This video is now 3 years old and I found it because I could not continue my 30 days of yoga as I felt so weak after my boyfriend broke up with me 3 days ago (after 1,5 year relationship). It is a huge blessing to have such tools to heal myself eventhough I didn't start crying. I was surprised because I already cried my heart out the evening and morning after he left me, but so many memories of our last vacation, which was wonderful came up. Maybe that's kind of the same thing, I really don't know. I am glad to be part of this huge and wonderful community of people helping each other to find pieces and strength

  12. Thank You Again. You're an amazing person! Love and Peace ♡ Tauney

  13. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I needed that so badly. Much love 💗

  14. Just what I needed <3

  15. Thank you.

  16. Thank you so much, I cried during most of this but I feel like it helped me. <3 <3

  17. just cried through this sequence, it was pure and meditative, – exactly what my heavy heart needed today.

  18. Started this video crying and cried a lot in the last pose. I didn't knew I needed this. Thank you. With all my heart and mind. You are precious❤

  19. my nana has recently left us as well as two of my dogs, this practice was difficult for me, it was hard to bring myself to get the mat out to start, but that's how it is on bad days, I'm glad i did. Thank you, Adriene. I will revisit this practice plenty when i am in need of soothing

  20. My husband and I have been together for half my life. We have 2 beautiful children. Today we decided to lovingly part ways. I immediately turned to this practice to begin the grieving process. My yoga mat has never been flooded with so many tears. I feel less alone and appreciate how sacred this one life is. Thank you Adriene and YWA community for sharing your beauty souls in such a meaningful way.

  21. Yesterday the love of my life left me and told me that he didnt feel the same way and that he is very sorry. It hits me out of nowhere and even now, a few hours later, I can not believe what has just happend. Not only that he doesnt loves me and probably never did, but that I've lost it….him as a person…everything we had – just gone forever. It hurts so damn bad. Thank you Adriene for this steadiness and routine you give to me. For your kind words. At least I do not feel totally alone.

  22. My girlfriend left me two weeks ago and I've missed my yoga class since because I couldn't stop crying. This made me cry too but at least at was alone at home and not in a class. I think it was a good cry.

  23. Thank you for this video. I really needed it today.

  24. Thank you so much adriene I woke up from a horrible dream about my ex and I felt my heart I felt this unreal pain that went to my head , one I had never felt before I was panicked but once I completed this I feel normal again the pain is still there but it’s on pause it’s faint and I could have never gotten here without you, you allowed me to smile and laugh after that unreal feeling Its unbelievable! I do one of your practices every morning and I am so thankful for you and your heart it is so beautiful and big !!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️Lots of love ! ~ Madi ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  25. Does anyone know if Adriene does anything for grief or pregnancy loss? I've looked through various playlists and don't see anything.

  26. Me and my Boyfriend for just over 3 years broke up it was kinda mutual but We are both heart broke. We do love eachather but we are just not the best we can be so we are giving eachather time and space to grow . I am still heart broken and sad but I know iT Will be okay

  27. My beautiful Jessie dog went to the rainbow bridge one week ago. My heart is broken as well as my mind and body. My greif has messed up my neck and back. Thank you for this practice. It helped me get up out of bed and take care of myself. I miss Jessie's unconditional love and gentleness. Peace and love, Vanessa.

  28. Thank you very much for this one,it was really nice

  29. Thank you for this beautiful practice, Adriene. Much needed and appreciated.

  30. You are such a beautiful soul, Adriene <3 Thank you for sharing this loving practice with us! It really shows your compassion and love towards everyone who is going through a hard time. I am beyond grateful that I found your channel. Sending love to you from the UK! Namaste! 🙏💕

  31. Thanks, Adriene – beautifully soothing. Our little boy died and was born four weeks ago and my morning practice continues to support me each day.

  32. Beautiful video. I love the pace of this practice and with the piano music in the background. It would be nice to listen to just on my own. Does anyone know where to find it?

  33. Does what it says on the tin, brilliant, only 1 fault — goes too fast for beginners, bit slower & would be 100%

  34. Adriene I don't think i can express with words how grateful i am to have you and your wonderful community to support me each day. this practice helped me more than i thought it could this morning, thank you for somehow understanding what i need when i need it. i hope the person i grow to be shares the compassion, kindness, humour and support for others that you show for everyone here. again, thank you <3

  35. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I have a hiatus hernia & was in desperate need of a gentle routine to help get my stomach back where it belonged. This heart opener was an answer to prayer. I worked a miracle! Thank you soooo much!

  36. To Adrienne and all the people who are also on this road. Thank you💛

  37. I was broken today and feel stronger after this practice . Thank you for helping me smile and be calm again today.

  38. Thank you for this video. Needed it more than you know.

  39. Thank you.

  40. Cried through most of this today. Thank you for this beautiful, safe space. Would you ever think of doing a longer version of this? With relaxing music and beautifully calm voice over and everything? Also, the beautiful comments gathered here from years of people doing this made my heart feel better, too. Thanks to the whole community!

  41. My partner of over 2.5 years has been struggling with depression the past few months. A few days ago he told me that he loved me and cared for me so much but he realized that he couldn't be in a relationship and get better at the same time without hurting both him and I. We both love each other but based off of everything he told me I know that I have to let him go in order for him to heal and get back to a place where he can be happy and confident in himself again. Its hard to know that even though there is nothing that went wrong in the relationship, and he places no blame on me and said I was the most supportive and loving partner he could have asked for, that I still lose the person who I love most in the world. I have been waking up shaking, feeling physically ill, and crying all the time. I myself have struggled with extreme depression and I am determined not to lose myself in grief like I did the last time I was broken up with. This time It is different and harder because I do not hate him, and my heart is breaking knowing that a beautiful relationship has to end and theres nothing I can do about it, because the issue lies within his own soul. I always turn to you, Adriene when I have any sort of problems, and you always know just what to say to make me realize that there is hope for a better tomorrow. I cried throughout this whole video- and I will continue to do it (and others) until I don't cry as much anymore and can get back to the girl that is so lost deep inside. Thank you so much for being there for so many people and letting all of us know that we aren't alone in our pain.

  42. I’m in love with this flow! I first tried it in 2015 when I was totally heartbroken and for some reason I couldn’t cry it out, there was just no tears at all, and after this practice I cried for 2 or 3 hours and then I practiced again and again, this flow helped me so much!!! I still do this practice from time to time because it just helps you find some kind of a peace with yourself deep inside. Thank you Adriene for being here, for doing what you do it’s just priceless! Namaste 🙏 💗💗💗

  43. Thank you for this practice to help my broken heart today.

  44. Feeling so sad this week…i feel the loss of my mom in my heart ❤️ thanks Adriene, namasté xx

  45. I truly have so much respect and love for this woman without even meeting her. I have been struggling with heartbreak for the past 5 months and nothing seemed to help (packing away memories, the night life, cutting communication, etc.) but for this first time in a while I feel so open to accepting my unfortunate outcome to build more relationships within my self. Thank you!

  46. Thank you! I felt terrible all day, pms really kicked my butt, so I did this. And for the first time ever I managed to touch my toes to the floor while rocking forward and back in the end of the video! It felt great! Thank you so much for this

  47. Thank you so much for this. I got dumped last night on easter.. 2 months to the day after our 1 year anniversary. I was completely blind sighted and I am in so much shock and pain. This allowed me to release some of that pain

  48. I love this community. My love of nine months broke up with me because i identify as nonbinary/genderqueer. He said that he can't see a future with me because I'm not cisgender. I was open and honest from the very beginning and he seemed enthusiastic and very supportive until very recently. I thought I was going to marry this person. I am heartbroken and its the first explicit transphobia I've dealt with on top of heartbreak. For anyone whose identity is wrapped up in their heartbreak, and for anyone who has been rejected for a core, and fragile, part of who they are, I send you love. Thank you so much for this video, Adriene. It really helped me through my heartbreak. <3

  49. I'm going through a break up, but I'm really working on myself, because I was so controlling and angry towards my ex lover and I want them to see my change, so that we can have a better, healthy relationship. Thank you so much for this, even though I'm 4 years late😂. I used to feel so ashamed of myself for how I treated my ex lover, but then I realized that the best apology was too take a break, reconcile with myself, improve myself, and then come back better and more positive than ever, not just for them but also for my own personal well-being.

  50. Thank you, this is a beautiful practice!

  51. ❤️💙💚💛🧡💜💞💝namaste

  52. Woke up with an unusually heavy heart today. About halfway through this practice, you were talking about how we hold emotion in our hips – as I was squatting I couldn't help but to break out into an audible laughter. Thanks for helping me uncover some joy that I didn't even know was there 🙂

  53. I got my heart broken not too long ago… and today i was crying my heart out, still was when i began this yoga session but i feel much calmer now. Thank you for helping me to calm down

  54. I was in a really bad "relationship" the whole time i was with him he would use me for my money and make me feel guilty if i didn't get him things. There were good times of course. and deep down i knew i was being mistreated. this went on for three years i must have in total spent close to 3000$ on him including a 900$ shopping trip for his birthday. we went out to fun places and dinner a lot all paid for by me . I had no problem doing this because he didn't have much. his family needed government help. I loved him and he loved me in his way i guess.. we did this for 3 years (it became long distance after 1 with seeing him every weekend) the whole time he didn't give me a real title but i was so attached to him it was okay to me. over this time i found him texting many other girls, found instagram likes and comments. when i brought them up to him he would manipulate the situation and if i kept counteracting his statements he would get angry and defensive and turn the negativity on me. then after all this he finally got a job and he began pulling away from me a little bit.. i logged into his snapchat and found him sexting a girl he swore he didn't like because she was fat and not his type. But i was so stupid i literally convinced myself i didn't see anything. Finally when he got deeper into the job he would start ignoring my messages sometimes for days or even weeks. finally he asked me to borrow money so he could afford christmas gifts for his family. i did and he never paid me back.. in college i gained love for myself and strenght i didn't remember having before. i stood up to him and tried to get the money back from him. this turned into him physically abusing me and STILL stayed!. One day i was in class and looked down to see him typing on snapcaht i opened the convo to see that i was blocked.. that was our main contact point. he didn't have a phone. he was kicked out of his moms house so i figured he was under stress i cried for days. but i saw this coming. I then was unfollwed by him on instagram and he refollwed me i guess he wanted to make sure i saw he was living on without me. I tired to message him on instagram no response. it hurt terribly. I tried to but on a war cry of not caring for my friends fearing the "are you okay?" that would send me into oblivion. finally i find myself here because i tried so hard to pry him out of my heart but it is so hard because him removing me from his life honestly had to happen we were becoming toxic to one another. and i knew if he didn't end it we would both be playing an impossible game of thug of war. but now im in a new relationship.. this man is ready and willing to treat me like a princess but i am still in love with this first guy.. i just want nothing more than to rip him from my soul my skin my mind but i need closure ive been fighting myself not to text him. and the hardest thing is i didn't just fall in love with him i fell for his two little brothers which i felt were mine. i fell in love with his moms which i felt i could talk to more than my own. i fell in love with his dog whcih if i knew then what i know now i would have never pushed when he jumped on me i fell in love with his kinda step dad.. i know we were young but jesus i thought i would marry him.. i didn't think i knew.. and the things we would tak about like… i just don't believe it. i dont believe its this.. now im being unfair to a man that wants to care about me because i have un numbed pain… because my trust fro any man was stolen. because i gave him my heart for keeps for nothing. one day im good the next im spiraling down memories and tears i have everything of his deleted except for his instagram page. still dont have the money he borrowed.. i just want to give the guy i have now a fair shot. but he is in the way. if you read this thanks i just needed to vent. i really need closure. and im trying to be strong here but i mean i don't know sometimes i wanna just beat him. sometimes i wanna ask him why i deserved it. sometimes i wanna ask him to forgive me as if i did something. sometimes i wanna scream and cry. i.. i wonder why heartbreak exists. the funny thing is this this is missing so many details.. maybe i should write a book.

  55. This is lovely ,thank you Adrienne xx

  56. I know this silly but one of my sweet kitties was accidentally run over during the Memorial weekend. It has upset me so. I do this flow to accept this loss but celebrate her sweet life. 😢❤️🙏🏼

  57. 7 years and we have broken up. Such a shock and it hurts, he is my best friend and I've lost him. It hurts so much so when I did this i cried like a baby. Thank you for this video, will do again when I am stronger x

  58. I cried almost the whole time but i finished. Thank you

  59. Very gentle and soft practice. Thank you sooooo much!!!!!!

  60. I continue to break my own heart by mistrusting people who have only shown me love. I've been going through times that feel like I've reached a new level of confidence, only to realize it was another instance of arrogance in disguise. I've managed to apologize before causing too much harm this time around, so I know I'm growing and healing, but the fall feels a bit more painful every time. "Still I rise" (Maya Angelou). I'll get back up tomorrow and try again. Thank you Adriene for the healing practice and thank you all for sharing yourselves in the comments, because those were half the healing for me tonight.

  61. Oh man. I looked up yoga for a broken heart as my 13 year old cat just passed away crazy suddenly… a blood clot so he was happy and fun and an hr and a half later he was being euthanized. I saw this and I have just started bawling my eyes out. I haven’t done yoga since he passed because it’s too lonely. He used to rub up on my face the whole time and I’d have to stop to wipe his fur off of my face. Drove me a little crazy before but I would give anything to have it back. Once I stop crying and can breathe through my nose I am destroying this.

  62. First time I have done this one I think. Absolutely beautiful Adriene. <3 <3

  63. Thank you

  64. Who would've thought that after a holiday this is what I need more than a digestive flow?

  66. Would you share the music playlist as heard on your video? The music sounds pretty

  67. Waiting till Monday for the results of my kitties labs to come back. Cancer or not my heart is breaking with each moment that passes. Knowing the results probably won’t be positive. I didn’t want to do yoga today but remembered that i saw in passing a video titles “yoga for a broken heart” hoping to be in a better head space after. Thank you In advance adriene.

  81. Dear Adriene, I just learned of the ICE raid that took away 600 ppl and their children in despair without parents. It broke my heart, and I seeked to heal it first before I do what I can to help these ppl in need. Thank you for having this place of love.

  82. Really need this for my heart and letting go of my emotions. Thank you Adriene, you are an angel. 🙏

  83. Thank you for this, all I wanted the whole time was to cry but I managed to do half the routine, next time will do full.😞

  84. Thank you, Adriene. Thank you for showing me that I can heal.

  85. Adriene, thank you as always. I am so grateful that your channel exists and I've followed your yoga through the ups and downs in my life. This practice helped me feel a release that was much needed after a recent breakup. Namaste xo

  86. My fiance broke up with me. We had been together for 13 years. I am dying inside but I brought myself to the mat. Thank you for reminding me to keep breathing Adriene.

  87. Usually we say words can not express how we may feel but we definitely can. That is just the overwhelming feeling we think we can not handle to express. You my dear, are blessed. NAMASTE. 🙏🏽 because I am positively enjoying the overwhelming peacefulness this session just brought me. THANK YOU. Where ever you are at this moment in time in life, I am sending you the best of vibes you have helped find within. Thank you.

  88. I had to say goodbye to my dog today. This was my first session on the mat without him coming and doing downward dog with me. This really helped me make good use of the silence that now leaves no echos in my house. Thank you Adriene! I love you Bobby 💕

  89. Such a helpful video… thank u soo much

  90. Today it was sweat, tears, and blood on the mat (i scratched my hand with my toenail). Gosh, I wish I were Ariana Grande so there would be no more tears to cry.

  91. My boyfriend and I broke up after 3 years of being together just 2 days ago. I feel so lost, vulnerable and hurt, but so grateful for your video. Thank you so much for everything you do, I started crying towards the end and feel lighter now, I knew it was the right decision to get on the mat today, even though it was hard to find the strenght, it was worth it.

  92. I started seeing this guy right before I had to leave for college. He's 22 but had to take a break from college to save up money to pay for it, and he was planning on starting college again in the spring. He told me that he applied to the college I was going to so that we could be together. Two days before I left, he told me that he actually never applied. He chose to go to a different college instead. The thing that boggles my mind is that I heard news that things didn't even work out with the college he chose. He chose the safe route instead of risking things to be with me and the safe route was apparently not as safe as he thought it would be. Anyways, I really had hope that things were going to work out with him. He has such a beautiful and unique mind that I don't think I can find in anyone else. Sure, I've met guys here in college, but I still miss him so much. I wish I could go back home and be with him. I want to be with him more than anything else. I wish I could reach out to him, but it's probably best that I don't, at least until Christmas break. This week, I've been crying almost every day wishing that I could be with him. I hope that this video can help me let go of some of that pain.

  93. Thank you for making this..my mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and I've taken it hard. I've dove head first I to this routine for comfort and it's made it easier to bear

  94. Oh Adriene, I came to my mat sobbing my heart out and this practice has dried my tears. thank you for everything

  95. Thank you, Adriene and YWA team. This is beautiful practice that I’ll bookmark. ❤️

  96. Thank you, Adriene. Cried through this one, but I needed it! Nameste x

  97. Thanks Adrienne for this practice. I finally had the strength to end a six month mentally abusive relationship, and only recently have I discovered that he has been spreading hate about me, and turning people on me as if I’m the abusive one. The broken heart has been soul crushing but this practice is healing and has comforted me enough to stop thinking about him for a few minutes and made me realise I deserve better than him. You truly do work miracles.

  98. Thank you Adriene! I needed this so much right now. I am so grateful that you can always lift me up when I am down. You have no idea. ❤

  99. Thank you.

  100. Wow, this one really helped me today with my massive heartache and made me think clearer. Thank you so much.
