Yoga For Gratitude


– Hello, everyone, and
welcome to Yoga with Adriene. I’m Adriene, and today we have
a gratitude practice for ya. This is an awesome little ditty that you can do at home
with your loved ones, or you can shut the
door and light a candle, and do it for yourself,
getting into the hips, stretching the body from head to toe, and most importantly,
connecting to gratitude. I’m super grateful for all of you, thanks for being here,
let’s hop on the mat. (cheerful guitar music) Alright, so today we’re going to begin in a nice, comfortable
skeet of your choice. So, this could be on the knees, in a little hero variation, this could be in a nice, easy cross-legged position. (breathes deeply)
And wherever feels good. Just take a second to, y’know, you have the video rolling now, you have everything you need to come into a nice seat. And when you arrive, you can make little adjustments as needed, maybe a couple neck circles,
maybe looping the shoulders a couple times, blowing your
nose, scratch that itch. And then, whatever you have to do to just come into a nice, still, seat. The hands can rest wherever
they naturally fall, or feel good, either gripping the knees… or a little more passive in the lap. And then trust this
moment, trust yourself, trust me, and close your eyes. Sit up nice and tall wherever you are. And begin to notice your breath. So the focus of today’s
practice, of course, is gratitude, and… the sensations that we feel when we apply that attitude of gratitude. Sounds kind of hokey, but
I really believe in it, so just take a second
to notice how you feel. So that as we move through our practice… we move with gratitude. We’re already kind of connected… to this idea of listening, noticing. So, this might be a little difficult for you to just sit here with
the eyes closed in stillness, kind of waiting for the next thing, or wondering if you even have time for this video, or if
you should be doing this right now, just trust that you wouldn’t have started the video if you weren’t, maybe, supposed to do it. Trust that this time is valuable… and giving thanks is important. As a way of anchoring
the mind and connecting to the sensations, this art of noticing, we’re going to deepen the breath. So, nothing fancy here, just easy, breezy, beautiful, gratitude. Nice, big breath in through the nose. (inhales deeply)
And a long breath out. (exhales)
Breathe with me, inhale. (inhales deeply)
Long exhale out. (exhales) This time, in through the
nose, out through the mouth. And two more just like that. (breathes deeply) And notice how this affects
your neck and shoulders, one more.
(breathes deeply) Awesome. Open the eyes slowly. Take a second here to
just notice how you feel. And then, we’re gonna
transition to all fours. Move nice and slow, sweetly. Again, taking this time for you. You might give yourself permission here to forget what you know
about yoga, yoga practice. Again, trust that you
picked the right video, and that gratitude is the way to go. So, as you come to all
fours, bring the knees nice and wide, we’re going to an extended child’s pose, or premam. The big toes kiss, we
spread the palms super wide, just to extend awareness
out through the fingertips. Then, inhale, look forward,
and exhale, send it back. Eventually, forehead kisses the mat, and again, you trust yourself, trust me, trust the video, so you don’t have to look at the screen here. Just listen to my voice as you spread the palms super
wide, if the shoulders feel tight here, go ahead
and take the pinkies to the outer edges of your mat. Then, go ahead and allow
the elbows to rest, the arms to rest on the earth. Now, if this is not a
comfortable position for you because of the ankles, the
feet, or anything in between speaking to you, another option here is to come to the elbows, walk
the knees in a little bit, and then melt back like this so you’re not putting any
pressure on the feet or the ankles right now, also a really great shoulder opener, so. Come to a place of surrender
here that feels good, whether it’s extended child’s
pose or the variation there. And then again, take
your eyes off the video. And notice your breath. Relax your jaw, and start breathing into the torso here, all four sides. So a 360 breath in the torso, so big, big, big, full breaths. (breathes deeply) Close your eyes. And today’s focus,
again, gratitude, growth. With the eyes closed, breathing in and out through the nose, maybe sometimes finding a nice exhale or release
out through the mouth. No rules here, just conscious breathing. (breathes deeply) I’d like for you to place
gratitude at the helm, maybe right in between your eyebrows, your third eye, maybe even you rock gently side to side here in the
head, massaging that space, that point of intuition. And then find a little stillness… and take a second here
while you’re breathing, stretching, melting the heart, to think about… what you are thankful for. And I guess I hesitated there because there are so many things, a long list. Perhaps, or maybe you’re
having a little trouble. So best you can, I’ll say that. Take a quiet moment here to think about the things that you are grateful for. List them off quietly to yourself. (breathes deeply) I am grateful for… Thank you for… (breathes deeply) And then, part two, notice how you feel. So, a couple more moments
here with the breath. Think about what you’re
grateful for, and then part two, notice how that makes you feel. Notice if it changes your breath. Can you allow it (exhales)
to affect your breath? The sensations in your feet, your fingers. Then notice the sensations
around your heart center here. If anything, and if not, no worries. We’re here to practice
and connect to that, awaken that, so, again, no rules. (breathes deeply) And slowly spread the
palms as wide as you can. Stretch the webbing between each finger… and take a deep breath in as you press actively into the tops of the feet and lift the weight of your
body up back to all fours. Find extension through
the crown of the head as you walk the knees
underneath the hip points. And then, curl the toes under. Great, walk the palms all the way to the tops of the thighs here. Then, flip the palms, just
stretching the feet here as you inhale, lift up through the crown. Inhale in, gratitude, exhale. Inhale, lots of gratitude in. And we’re off, connecting
with the breath, exhale. One more time here, maybe you squeeze the shoulders up to the ears. (sighs)
Beautiful. We’re gonna walk the palms back out. Tabletop position here. So, we have four strong posts here holding us up, wrists
underneath the shoulders, knees directly underneath the hips. Spread awareness through
the fingers once again, stretching through the webbing in between each finger. And then cat, cow, but
nice and slow today, right? Stretching the belly as you inhale, shoulders draw away. And on your exhale, starting at the tail, curling under nice and slow. Trust yourself, trust
me, trust the video here. You don’t have to look at the video once you have the hang of it. Moving with gratitude, thinking about all the things that you are grateful for. And then, letting that
go and just noticing how that makes you feel,
you move with gratitude. When you hold that
sense of thankfulness… in your heart. Now, we can begin to veer
off the railroad tracks… stretching in the places
that feel good here, maybe sending the hips
a little left to right, maybe coming off the wrists for a moment. Extending one leg, and then the other. So, a little freestyle here
to wake up your tired body. Perhaps you’re practicing
this post-holiday… and you need to just kind
of work out the kinks, you haven’t been on your mat. Or… you’ve been relaxing, chillaxing. So this is good, finding
a really healthy way to balance out the mind and body here. Yoga, super awesome for that. And then, when you feel
awesome on all fours, go ahead and make your way to your belly. Any which way you like, get
centered on your yoga mat. Get situated, and then align
the heels with your hip points. So, rather than being in or out, see if you can align them
right with the hip points. Toes pointing back, press
into the tops of the thighs, the pubic bone, and bring your elbows right underneath your shoulders. Then, align the wrist with the elbows, so we have a nice right angle here. And then spread the palms super wide. Press into the tops of
the feet, my friends, draw the shoulders away from the ears by anchoring down through
the elbows and inhale. Lift your chin forward,
open up through the throat. Open the heart, chest, collarbones wide. Press into all ten knuckles best you can, inhale in, then keep
everything where it is, but just slight tuck of the chin so that you can lengthen
through the back of the neck. A little bowing here in
reverence, moving again with gratitude, breathing in and out, sticking with the breath. You might find a gentle sway here. This is supposed to feel strong, but also good, so find
what feels good here. (breathes deeply)
Use your breath. One more breath here, strong in the arms, strong in the legs, nice, open heart. And then we’ll release.
(sighs) Take a little rest. We’re going to either
stack the forearms here, or you can actually stack the palms for a little pillow on the forehead. Bring the two big toes in, heels wide. And then, a little
shaking of the booty, yes. Hips left to right. Big breath in (inhales),
big breath out (exhales). Two more like that. (breathes deeply) Big inhale. (inhales)
So great for the body, big exhale, let it go.
(exhales) Awesome, gently lift the
head, lift the heart. We’ll walk the palms
underneath the shoulders. Curl the toes under, back to all fours. Great, again, find your four posts here. Press away from your yoga mat. Okay, so, whether you just practiced a Thanksgiving holiday or not, this is gonna be great for anyone wanting to just have a
solid gratitude practice. So, connecting to your center, right, that energy that radiates from your core. Press into the tops of the feet, lots of mindfulness through the palms, still here as we press
away from the yoga mat. So, the neck is not hanging down here, the belly’s not hanging down here, the shoulder blades aren’t collapsed. We are alive and awake,
people, here we go! Press into the top of the left foot, nice and slow, so stay
connected to your torso, and what’s going on in the body as you extend the right leg out long. Turn the right toes down towards the earth and lift up through
your right inner thigh. Big breath in here.
(inhales) Nice and alive through the spine, that dunda that we talk about, lower ribs drawing in here. Stay here if you’re new to the practice and you’re already shaking with joy, (laughs) or we’ll add on by sending the left fingertips forward. Plug that left shoulder in as you continue to lift up through your heart center. After you get a good vibe off the video, take your gaze straight down, and imagine shaking someone’s
hand with your left hand here. Plugging that shoulder in, big breath in, you got it, big breath out to release. Other side, go ahead and slap down the top of the right
foot here, breathe deep. (breathes deeply) Find integrity through the spine, the neck, the shoulders, the belly. And then we’ll send the left toes out when you’re ready, big breath in here. So we’re pressing into both palms evenly, there’s a tendency to
shift to the right here, there’s a tendency to stay
open through the hips, so it takes a couple moments here to go through your
checklist, explore your body. Use your breath again,
that vehicle of gratitude, is moving in and out with
the breath, you got it. One more big inhale in here, lifting up through the left inner thigh, stay here if you like now, going
through your checklist, or right fingertips reach forward. Plug the right shoulder in, again, imagine shaking someone’s hand here, big, big breaths, welcoming a little bit of heat to the body, you got it. And then, on your next
exhale, release, awesome. Curl the toes under, slide the palms to the tops of the thighs again, and take a little wrist break. So, it could be a little massage, could be circles. Stick with your practice, here we go. Downward-facing dog, you do have time. We’re making time now to connect to the big picture, to give thanks, and to move with gratitude, with grace. So, when you’re ready,
send the hips up high. Try not to think too hard,
but stick with your breaths. We’ve already established that we’re here to kind of practice as a tribute to gratitude and growth. So, surrender your thinking
lines to the practice. And sometimes, physical
practice is important for that. So, focus on the sensations in your body. Stay connected to your
breath as you pedal it out. Find what feels good here. And then, after you’ve found
a little bit of movement here, come into a place of stillness, with the two big toes turning slightly in. If the heels are nowhere
near the ground, who cares? Accept your body where it’s at today. One more deep breath in here. And then we’ll soften through the knees, and go for a nice, slow, walk up towards the front edge of your mat. Doing awesome, my friends,
take a nice forward fold here, close your eyes, a little
bit of reverence here as you breathe in and out
through the nose or mouth. Bend your knees, give the
lower back body a lot of love. (breathes deeply) Maybe be clasping the elbows here. And letting go in the head, the neck. Press into your feet, close your eyes. Find that connection to the earth, all four corners of the feet. So good for you here, even
better if you’re breathing deep. Long breaths. (breathes deeply) And then, release the
arms in they’re clasped. And slowly roll up. And slowly stacking up through the spine. Make sure you’re not gripping in the toes. Find a big, beautiful lift in the heart. And then, continue your reach up with the fingertips, all
the way up towards the sky. Take a nice, full body stretch here, engaging through the legs as you inhale. Lift, lift, lift. And then, exhale, hands to the heart. Anjali mudra, take a second to
look at your hands in prayer. Then, close your eyes again as you bring your sternum to your thumbs. Stay engaged in the legs,
lifted in the heart, and again here, with the eyes closed… Bring your awareness, your
attention to your breath, and again to that which
you are thankful for. Even if it’s just one thing
this time, one different thing. And then, notice how that makes you feel. Does it, or can if affect your body here, the energetic body, or even the way that you’re listening to your body. Again, careful not to
clench through the toes, or even in the eyebrows
here, soft in the face. Big breath in, big breath out. Big breath in to reach it up, inhale. Full body stretch, exhale down through the mid-line,
palms together in prayer. Forward fold here, take
your breath in and out. And then, we’ll plant the palms and step it back to plank. So, I only have two plank
poses in this whole practice. So, you can lower the
knees or keep ’em lifted. But everyone, super alive from the crown of the head to
the tip of the tailbones. So, whether you’re here
or here, light it up. Big breath in, big breath out, lowers you down to the belly for cobra, or chatarunga, to upward-facing dog, so we’re working all
different levels here. Move with your breath, inhale in. Everyone, exhale back to
downward-facing dog again. You got it. Now, drop the left heel,
lift the right leg up high. Lift from your right inner thigh again, press into both palms evenly,
hug the lower ribs in, take a deep breath, then exhale, step it up into a nice, low lunge. So, lower the left knee, and in fact, walk that left knee out
just a little bit today. Just a hair, stack front
knee over front ankle. And then, you’re either
here, fingertips on the mat, breathing… or your here, fingertips interlaced on the top of the right thigh, breathing. Careful not to just dump
all the weight here, especially if you’re super flexy. Find a lift in the heart, everyone. Or you’re here. So we’re here, here, or here. Stay strong in the back leg, so it doesn’t matter if the
toes are curled or not for me, just as long as you
have a mindfulness there. Your body will tell you what feels best. Keep breathing here. Everyone, pull the right
hip crease back just a hair, take one more deep breath
in, wherever you are. And then exhale softly, release. Turn the right toes out, nice wide stance. And bring the right palm
over towards the left. So, you’re either here on the
palms or the fingertips, even. Breathing in and out, lots of gratitude. In, lots of gratitude, out,
let your breath continue like this, or instead of being here, you could also release
to the forearms, guys. So here, so we have lots of options. Stick with your breath, everybody. (breathes deeply) And then, check it out,
here’s a little bit of fun. So, if you’re on the palms, you’re gonna curl the left toes under and step it back to downward dog; if
you’re on the forearms, you’re gonna curl the left toes under… and slowly, everyone, step it back to dolphin. So, if you’re already on
the palms, chances are, maybe you’re just gonna
step back to a down dog, or you’re gonna give a
little dolphin a try. So, remember in the
beginning of our practice, when we had the sphinx
pose, that alignment, that integrity in the arms, the palms, pressing into all ten knuckles. Find your breath, maybe
this is new for you, a little fun, draw your
shoulders away from the ears. Breathe, breathe, breathe, everyone. And then, if you’re in forearm, you’re gonna lower the
knees and plant the palms, lift up to downward-facing dog. We’ll meet everyone
there, if you’re already in down dog, we’re coming to meet ya. And we’ll drop the right heel and lift the left leg up high, big breath in. Big breath out, step
it up into your lunge. You know where we’re headed now, lowering the right knee,
walking it back just a hair. Breathe into the front
of that right hip crease. Stack front knee over front
ankle, everyone, breathe. Long breaths, no rushing here today, so feel the sensations in your body. And since you know where we’re headed, you might close your eyes on this side, whether it’s fingertips on the mat… interlaced on the thigh,
or arms reaching up high. You might close your eyes. If you feel a little off balance here, hug the inner thighs to the mid-line. (breathes deeply) Feeling thankful right
now for this channel… for each other, for this yoga mat, for this roof over my head, for my limbs, for my heart, my breath, keep it going. (breathes deeply) And then, wherever you
are, take one more breath. Full body experience in the shape, and then exhale to the next thing here. Keep exploring the breath,
how long can you inhale, how long can you extend that exhale? Left toes turn out, left palm
comes over to meet the right. So again, you know this,
but just a reminder, each side is different,
right, so you might have been on the forearms on the right side, and a little different on the left side. Stay awake and alive through the neck. And we find where we are here today, nice, strong breath. (breathes deeply) So, if you come to the forearms, make sure you have that alignment of the elbows underneath the shoulders, and the wrists in line with the elbows, so they’re not coming in, they’re not splaying out. Nice attention to detail here. (breathes deeply) And you’re not expected to go there and be perfect right away, right? Enjoy the ride, the
practice, tending to… your action, your alignment, it’s just part of the fun, and it’s also what, of course, it’s all about. So, if you’re on the palms here, go ahead and curl the right toes under, step the left foot back,
downward-facing dog slowly. If you’re on the forearms,
we’ll curl the right toes under, slowly unravel, stepping
the left knee back and coming in to dolphin one more time. Come onto the yoga mat, here. So, if you’re new to this, whew, you’re having a heyday, I’m sure. I’m having a heyday here,
and I’m not even new to this. So, this can be a difficult
shape for many reasons, so stay strong in your foundation. Stay connected to your breath,
one more breath here, guys. And then, if you’re in
forearm, come to the knees, we’ll meet downward-facing dog. Here comes that last plank, we got it. Draw the navel up to the spine, little core work here, as
you slowly roll through. Come to top of a push-up. Breathe deep here, everyone, tapping the right toe off the
yoga mat, you got it. Gaze straight out in front. Then, back to center,
little strengthening. Left toes off the mat, keep pressing away, navel draws up, back to center. Two more times, we got this, to the right. Back to center, to the
left, last one, we got this. Tap the right toes off, to center, stick with it, to the
left, don’t rush back, we got this, and then slowly lower down. Great, knees together, we swim the fingertips around, child’s pose, yay! Crazy hair, take a deep breath in, and on an exhale, let it go. (breathes deeply) Let the shoulders relax. Let the back body
stretch with each inhale. Close your eyes, trust. (breathes deeply) And slowly, we’ll reach
the fingertips forward. Come back to all fours, and this time, swing the legs to one
side, come onto your bum… and send it all the way to flat back. Stretch the legs out long,
get centered on your mat. Take a nice, big, full-body stretch. Inhale, lots of gratitude in… exhale, lots of gratitude out. Just say, “Thank you.” And float the fingertips down, hug the knees in towards the chest, give yourself a big hug, close your eyes, lengthen through the back of the neck. Find movement that feels awesome here, and again, say, “Thank you.” (breathes deeply) When we connect the mind, and
the body, and the heart… I naturally come into
this place of gratitude. When I lay my head down
onto my pillow at night after a long day… my first thing is a big breath in, “Thank you for this breath.” “Thank you for this breath” is always a great place to start,
especially if you’re feeling like the sky, the world, the roof, whatever, is coming down on you. Take a deep breath in and start by saying, “Thank you for this breath.” So, we’re gonna end with a twist, nice, reclined twist here,
sending the fingertips out, left to right, or you
can bring the fingertips to interlace behind the head, so we have options here. And then, letting the knees melt, heavy over towards the left, maybe turning onto the right ear, if
the arms were extended, you can bring the left
hand to the outer edge of the right thigh, and the
right fingertips out long. Breathe into your belly,
great for digestion here, great for the internal
organs, stay nice and long through the neck, best you can. (breathes deeply) Close your eyes, enjoy your breath. We’re almost done, so stay focused. Stay calm, present. And then, slowly, we’ll
melt it back to center. Ah, enjoy it, just this
little bit of practice has expanded my awareness to just kind of look outside and notice
it’s a gorgeous day. And again, twisting to the other side now, and breathing into the belly. (breathes deeply) Take one more deep breath in, here. And, as you melt back
to center, ask yourself what would be good in your yoga wheel house, your yoga tool belt, what would feel good? Would it be a happy baby,
maybe a bridge pose. A shoulder stand, maybe a head stand if you have an inversion practice. Maybe you’re practicing
this video with someone, you catch their eye here,
maybe grab their hand. And if you’re not, and
you just got sad, like, “Oh, I’m doing yoga alone,” well, I’m doing yoga alone
too, so, it’s all good. You’re not alone… ’cause I’m here with you!
(laughs) No, we’re not alone, we
have everything we need right here, so do what feels good here. So, this is gonna be a little freestyle. If you’re ready for a relaxation… then we’ll bring the hands
to the rib cage here, or the belly, and slide the legs out long. And so, eventually,
we’ll come to this shape. Hands on the belly or the rib cage, we’ll crawl the shoulder
blades, shimmy them right under the heart space… and end with some belly breathing. Relax the legs, again, if
you’re doing your own thing, you’re doing an inversion,
or you started making out with the person that you’re
doing yoga with, right on! But if you’re doing your
own thing, enjoy it, I think that’s wonderful. Otherwise, maybe you come
to a little relaxation here, where you just give your belly some love, breathing into it. Remember that transformation
doesn’t always mean crunches, faster, harder, louder… stronger. It’s also the tender things, and the gratitude goes a long way, especially with the breath, so thanks so much for sharing
your practice with me, I’m so grateful for you, and this channel, and this conversation that we’re having. Just the fact that we’re all doing yoga. More and more in this day
and age, so wonderful. Thank you so much, have
a great rest of your day. Namaste. (cheerful guitar music)

Adriene- i started following your videos a few years ago, very early in my recovery from anorexia. i found your approach to yoga incredibly unique, understanding, wise, and so encouraging. i honestly experienced some of my first healthy mental changes towards how i approach physical movement, exercise, etc. during your videos. I now have 2 and a half years in recovery, and it is so great to come back and continue to benefit from your amazing spirit and these AMAZING videos. you are SO SO rad. like just as a person. u bless the internet and the world around you! plus ur dog is adorable!!

  5. You are hilarious and weird. I love it. I'm being all grateful and peaceful doing my yoga then you go and make me burst out laughing. Best yoga ever.

  6. I didn’t realize how much I needed this practice. Things have been a little heavy as of late, and I know it’s only temporary. Shifting my awareness back to gratitude, helped to let go of that which no longer serves me. Thank you so much Adriene for creating such a beautiful space of appreciation and gratitude. I’m constantly sharing with the positive impact you’ve had on my life and am so grateful to have discovered you. Have a blessed day Adriene 🙏🏼✨🔮😁

  7. Thank you Adriene.
    Amazing and just what I needed.
    Have been a few tense days as getting married to a British Man whom I love so much and regulations in the UK are different.
    We are marrying in the UK as his elderly parents will not be able to come to the US.
    But this Man of mine is Amazing and I know all will be well.
    Yoga with You makes everything good.
    Thank you. 😊 ❤️

  10. This is full of meditating thoughtfulness …. slow but strong. I could feel my dancers legs from yesterday’s practice ! It surprises me that slow can be so challenging, some trembles in there, but I used my breath to see me through, then felt proud of achieving so much. I especially loved the dolphin. I have done this once before but this time it was better and so super stretchy ! It felt good. I really needed that child’s pose at the end … total surrender. We thank YOU Adriene for being so awesome 🧘🏼‍♀️😍🙏💞

  30. 18/21 – sometimes it's hard to let go of negative feelings, but I want to try to have a daily gratitude practice ☀

  31. I'm working my way out of codependency. I started this practice thinking about how gratreful i am for the people in my life, because that's where my mind is used to going when thinking about gratitude. And that's all true too. But at some point from my subconscious rose a new gratitude for me, for how well i take care of myself, how well i know myself, and how i'm free to evolve and become even better at that. It's a new feeling and i'm loving it. I also found gratitude for my own space, my little rented apartment. A place where i get to be alone and in peace whenever i want, where i have all i need, my books and my plants and my cat, and all furniture and accessories are the kind that i find beautiful. I have so much. Thank you for helping me see this and other wonderful truths here and now. Namaste.

  32. Happy birthday to u.this is my first yoga practice today of me

  33. I'm surprised I hadn't seen this video until now! This pratice is easily one of my new favorites. Was a little tough on the shoulders but overall it was very restorative. Thank you for reminding me it's not always giant steps that need to be taken to achieve a goal. Balancing strength and tenderness is so good and can be used as a model for general attitude toward life and everyday challenges. I was able to smile and laugh by the end of this pratice, when this morning I felt like I didn't want to get out of bed. So thank you again 💕 namaste

  34. after this yoga practice first things what came in my mind – “i love you Adrienne with all my heart, body and soul.” ❤️

  35. Thank you Adriene for you & your yoga videos becoming my daily habit. Love & appreciate your sharing 💞 Namaste 🧘‍♂️🙏

  36. When you said to think about what we are thankful for I started to cry because it is so many things we should be thankful for! Thank you for remind us of that. Best regards

  37. Love when the right yoga video finds me!💜

  38. Thank you So Much Adriene

  39. Thank you Adriene! 🙂

  40. This one is so yummy and hearth-warming! ❤

  41. I am grateful for the magical mystery of life 💚🙏💚

  42. That was a beautiful moment

  43. Today we didn't have water in our home for a few hours and it reminded me to be grateful for fresh, pure water that is accessible at all times. I'm grateful for this practice as well, thank you for reminding all of us to take a step back and appreciate everything that we have in our lives!

  44. Perfect sequence for Thanksgiving, especially with working retail. Been pretty negative lately so this helped to put things back into place. By the end of this I was smiling thinking of all the people and things I have and am grateful for! Hoping to do more yoga with my siblings and my boyfriend after Thanksgiving dinner! Thank you for this channel and sharing this beautiful practice with all of us. It's always better to be kind and grateful. Namaste and have a happy holiday Adriene and everyone reading! 💘

  45. Of all for which I am feeling the most gratitude, my relationship with you, Adriene, by way of your great gift of yoga and your ever sweet and encouraging manner that has kept me coming back to the mat for nearly a year now, is by far the greatest blessing in my life. Thank you! And may this day of thanksgiving be all you might ever wish for. Namaste

  46. Sweet sweet Adriene! Thank you so much for the love and kindness you're spreading in the world. I am so grateful for the practice with you. Your cheerfulness and peaceful way of being help me ground even in my worst inner storms:) Namasté🙏❤️✨

  47. I’m so grateful for the full life I have and especially grateful to be able to flow through 🧘‍♂️ with Adriene! 🙏

  48. Thank YOU, Adriene, for helping me discover yoga and begin to restore my soul. My son died two years ago and I started doing your videos at a friend's recommendation. I now do one almost every day. They have been life-changing and probably life-saving. You go at just the right pace. Thank you! As a bonus, my years of back pain is almost completely gone, too.

  49. Happy Thanksgiving! I love this one, and I am so grateful for discovering you, and learning Yoga this year. I am grateful! Namaste

  50. and today I am grateful for you! <3

  51. I love this channel! 🙏🌻☀️

  52. I am truly grateful for you Adrian, you have helped me more than you can possibly know. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

  53. This was exactly what I needed to day. It's been a rough year in general and a particularly rough month. I've been crying a lot the last couple days. This helped to ground me and remind me of the wonderful things in life for which I am grateful. It's ok to mourn, but what's important is balancing out the feelings of loss and lack with the feelings of gratitude and abundance. Thank you ♡

  54. Yet another great class with Adriene. Happy New Year to you and all your yoginis.♥️🥳

  55. I love you

  56. I am grateful for finding you yt channel 20 months ago! I’ve been practicing everyday for 1 year and your love and kindness give me energy to come back the following day. Thank you so much for all you do for us 🙏🏾❤️

  57. Awesome practice.so thankful for you and this channel. Namaste Adriene 🙏

  58. I slept so bad, and I was just hating everything this morning. You and this practice just made me realise, or i guess remember, that life is pretty great. I have so much to be grateful for, and for that I'm grateful. Thank you so much for this video and for everything you do <3

  59. Loved it❤️❤️

  60. I'm thankful for YWA!🙏🏼❤️

  61. Well to say Adriene that you did this video nearly 4 years ago, you haven't changed a bit. Great instruction throughout the practise, communicating well with breathing, oh yeah you've not changed either.but seriously my yoga practise with you is getting better each day and not only do I thank you for this, but also my yoga teacher at home, Emma, who I am very grateful to, for introducing me to yoga.I think that if anyone is reading this comment and unsure about yoga and it's benefits, try yoga with Adriene and you'll be to feel loads better, I know it sounds cheesey and I never comment as much as I do about this, but these sessions in a morning help me through the day and for that I am very grateful.

  62. Thank you so much for this and for your loving energy. I love that you allow us to show up and simply be where we are in the moment 💗

  63. Woah that did not feel like 35min. All that sweet meditation.

    Well I thought I would share what I am grateful for, since thats what this whole flow was about. I'm grateful for my full functioning body and continued health, for my dad and mum, for all my family, for my friends, for my new job oppotunity and my continued support at my old one. And grateful for my yoga practise 🙂 I love the idea of being grateful for a breath, because it all starts with that right?

  64. Love and light to everyone, i am so gratefull for this community and you Adriene, another great class 🙂

  65. This is such a special practice. I feel so calm and grateful. Thank you so much Adriene 💗 Namaste 💗

  66. Happy Saturday Adriene 🌞 hey there friend! On my 167 day of ywa! I'm a member of the find what feels good and Kula. And I've been doing videos from the monthly playlist. This morning I'm doing yoga for self-love. And yesterday I did the Gratitude asana. Ty for your time and energy!! Peace and lollipops✌🍭💖😎

  67. Came across this practice last night after a tough day of self doubt and mental health yuckiness. This practice changed my mood totally. I have woke up the next day with a different frame of mind <3

  68. I ended this practice with a smile ❤

  69. Our gratitude goes to you Adriene you are a wonderful teacher and I haven't felt so good about myself in years. So glad my son introduced me to you. Yoga is amazing and I've only being practicing for a year what a difference it has made to me, my body and how I am with others too. Thank you so much 🙂 x

  70. I'm so happy I took the time to do this video. At first I was like sheesh 35 minutes. Don't think I have the time. But now I wish it didn't end so soon! All I can really say to you these days is thank you. You are an inspiration fellow yogi.

  71. REUNITE day 29! Beautiful beautiful beautiful practice! Sometimes I find it difficult to come up with something that I’m grateful for, but once i get going, the list gets so long! Thank you for this reminder. Namasté <3

  72. A wonderful, calming practice – with a considerable amount of challenge! My energies are picking up and I was able to engage with most, modifying at times. My knees are a bit problematic at the moment, so have to work mindfully. Thank you Adriene xx Namaste 💟💟

  73. At the beginning, my adjustment was : pet my dog who just came on the mat, and for the final, a big yawn. So, yes, I can say that it was a great relaxing and mindful practice. Thank you, again :-))

  74. I’m grateful for my daily yoga practice, thanks to you Adriene 🙏🧘‍♀️💕

  75. Gracias, Namaste 🙂

  76. I chose three words as a mantra for the rest of 2019 and Gradtitude is one of them. This perfectly aligned and helped shifted some negative feelings I was having into positive perspectives.

  77. My goal this month has been to follow the calendar every day. Sometimes, it’s really hard to get on the mat. I’m glad I did. Thank you. These videos make such a huge difference for me.

  78. Always be thankful for you are breathing, you are moving, and you are growing 💗 Thank you so much Adriene! Namaste 🙏🏻✨

  79. I am so, so, so grateful for you Adriene. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Namaste.

  80. REUNITE day 29

    Lovely practice today, gentle and light on the heart.

    Namaste.

    #ywaREUNITE #FWFG

  81. Nice and chill – thanks! ❤️ cheers to Reunite people too

  82. I hereby announce a new unit of measurement: PPP – planks per practice.

  83. I was an emotionnal roller coaster today. Getting my head on the mat for the REUNITE Day 29 practice was hard. I did it anyway and I am way beyond grateful for this practice. Sending love and positivity to the community and to myself for the rest of the day💙🙏 thank you YWA for being there. You made my day❤

  84. I'm thankful for you. Thank you, Adriene.

  85. Today was a rough day for me, when I usually force myself to do the full pose, it was freeing to let myself modify when I needed to today. 🙂 thank you adriene

  86. Gosh, I love this practice so much! I feel like all is right in my life and the world after doing this one….even if it's only temporary. I am so grateful for this channel <333

  87. Today, my gratitude goes to this amazing yoga community and my lovely teacher Adriene. I'm doing talking therapy along with my daily yoga practice, these two altogether have helped me throughout the journey of finding my true self and at the mean time reunite with my inner self. Thank you for these videos, lots of love to everyone❤️

  88. Swapped my days in the calendar doing yesterday’s practice on Day 30 of Reunite, I think of this as Happy Yoga because that’s how I felt when I got off my mat. Adriene your voice is so kind and gentle and reassuring it just makes me smile. As a senior yogi with arthritis I am so proud today of my full lizard, both sides, and dolphin. It felt so good and this time I breezed through those toe dips in plank. Job done Adriene, you did it for me. Love goes out to you for helping me to this level 🧘🏼‍♀️🧘🏻‍♀️🙏💞

  89. Simply wonderful x

  90. Today I needed reminding that I'm not alone and that it's going to be okay and this practice really helped me to take a breath and just put in the hands of the Lord so thank you Adriene for this wonderful practice, much love to you and benji and everyone, Namaste💕💞💓💗💖❤🙏

  91. 31st August 2019

  92. So grateful
    Much love
    Thank you

  93. Dear Adriene, how do you know what I am thinking?🙃I really feel connected to you❤️ thank you so much for creating this videos💃🏻

  94. THANK YOU Adrienne!!!

  95. Grateful for this one, Adriene

  96. Got a little emotional with this one when we were in extended child's pose… loved every second of it to explore and learn :')

  97. Day 240🙏🏾

  98. Very nice practice! Thank you for all the effort you put in. And thanks for not putting any ads in the video. Something I would really appreciate is to have 5 minutes of relaxing music at the end. Videos end so abruptly now and the next one starts immediately after, which takes you out of your flow.

  99. Thank you Adriene! I am incredibly thankful for your work on this channel and the community you have created 🙂 Sending lots of love to anyone doing yoga alone (or not) 😉

  100. I am so grateful for you and your yoga videos 🙂 xx
