Yoga Q&A + Personal Stuff + Puppy!


– What’s up, everyone? Welcome to the Yoga with Adriene vlog. We are in my breakfast nook today and we’re just taking a second
to answer some questions. So, we have all this great conversation going on on the channel,
which I’m super grateful for. I know I’ve said it before, so I won’t babble on about it now, but I’m really excited,
inspired and grateful for the nature and the very fact that we’re actually having
an exchange, you know? Chris and I aren’t just
putting out yoga videos and we’re not just practicing them. We’re actually talking really in-depth and having fun in our private yoga groups, which are on Facebook and they have to do with the REBOOT group
and the EMPOWER group, which I’ll talk more about later. But also on Twitter, also on
Instagram, who’da thought? Actually, we got removed from Facebook. I don’t know what happened,
but it was an exciting time. Everyone’s heart started, you know, blood started pumping and
our hearts started racing and we all questioned
life for a second there. But anyway, we’re back. Also via the letter, the newsletter. So, if you’re not
subscribed to the letter, you might check that out. You can go to yogawithadriene.com and subscribe to the
weekly letter from me. And we actually, you
know, I try to respond to the e-mails there as much as I can. And anyway, just starting off
this vlog by saying thank you. The reason we’re answering
questions here is because we’re actually talking and I think that is super awesome. So, that said, I put a call
out for questions this week. I put it up at like 10:30pm
and, the next morning, woke up with a bleep-ton of questions. Saved you from having to
bleep that out, Chris. Okay. (laughs) Anyway, so, I got so many great questions, I actually sat down, I
transcribed them all, not even on my computer,
like old-fashioned style with a pen and paper. And I organized them so that
we will have whole videos based on frequently asked questions. So, I’m gonna do another
video on nutrition. I’m gonna do another video just for yoga teachers or
aspiring yoga teachers. I’m gonna do a whole
video on my yoga history and talk about how I got into yoga. So, if your question
doesn’t get answered today, I just wanted to say that it was definitely
noticed and transcribed, and it might even have
inspired a whole other video. So, for today, we’re just
gonna keep it simple. I’m gonna go through
a couple of fun things and then, as time goes on, we’ll maybe keep this as a regular thing. So, the first one that I
wanted to tackle today, really simple but it’s so important, tips for setting intentions and maintaining them, keeping them. And some people just went, “Oh, yeah.” And some people just went, “(groans).” And I mean, I think that this
is a good conversation to have because the point is that
we’re actually talking about setting intentions,
that we’re actually going into this world of awareness, which,
again, for some, is like, “Yeah, I do that everyday. “I set intentions every morning.” And some days, you’ll forget
or some people are new to this kind of awareness jungle. Sounds sexy, just kidding. And so, I think that’s a great
place to start on this vlog. Tips for setting intentions
and maintaining them. You know, of course, everyone’s different, so everyone has their own mode. But for me, I like to write them down. I write them in my journal, I
write them on my to-do list. Man, if I’m really having a week, I write them on a dang sticky note and I put it on the mirror or
on the computer and the desk. I also kind of have a ritual
of setting intentions in my bed or just kind of looking at the day ahead in my bed before I get up, before I pick up my phone,
before I take care of the dog. You know, just kind of
having a conscious moment before I actually put
my feet on the ground where I’m like, “Okay, what is it “that we’re gonna do today?” That way I don’t just get
wrapped up in my to-go mind, to-go doggie bag mind,
whatever that means. That really means the thinking mind, which is what we talk
about in yoga all the time, something I talk about
in my public classes that are a little
different from the videos. We are there in the flesh together and it’s been so nice meeting people who come into Austin to practice. But kind of not ignoring
the thinking mind, but actually the opposite,
just kind of acknowledging it and then bringing it more awareness. So, setting intentions
at the begin of practice to kind of maybe take a
break from the thinking mind. There’s a awesome thing
in Yogananda’s book, his Autobiography of a
Yogi, where he talks about or his mentions his teacher saying, “What if you were to
take a break from that? “What if you were to just live
life with more awareness?” He said something like, “What if you were to do this experiment “where every thought that
you had were to come true? “What if every thought
you had were to come true? “How would you kind of reshape
your strategy on thinking? “Or how would your awareness grow?” And so, I think, when you start to think about the big picture and you can apply this to
your yoga asana practice, letting the thinking mind take a break and really, I know I
always say it, but get your money’s worth when it comes
to setting intentions, then you’re gonna maintain them baby. It’s not gonna just become this… “Drink more water today,” which is great, but you’re really gonna start to dig deep and think about what I think and the intentions that I
set are gonna come true. And if they are gonna come true, how am I gonna really
commit to that practice? So again, I can give you tips on, like, write the intentions down, that’s fun. Repeat mantras in the shower. But really, just anchor
your mind in this reality or entertain this idea
that every thought you have has the power to come true. And if, when you start
thinking about that, maybe your intention
practice is gonna shift and you’re just gonna start
to maintain them naturally. Which kind of leads me
to the next question, which is, how do you stick
with your yoga practice, even when you’re feeling sad or shitty? Great question, especially for me as I continue to grow my practice
in this business of yoga. You know, how do you (laughs), how do you get on your mat when you feel like just going
to a movie and eating a pizza? Well, my honest to god answer is go to the movie and eat
the pizza, you know? That is yoga, too, for me. Again, most people just lit up and half the people
just rolled their eyes. But for me, I’m a younger person (laughs), but I’ve been privileged
to practice for a while and from the biggest lesson I’ve learned in the last five to 10 years
is you gotta be yourself. You got to understood that yoga is more than the Yoga For Weight Loss video that you’re trying to get through or the 30 Days of Yoga even. It’s starts to bleed into your daily life. Those are invitations
into a bigger practice, which is being yourself. And so, for me, sometimes that is not getting on my mat at all and totally going to the Alamo Drafthouse and having a pizza and a
party. (laughs turn into sobs) Just kidding. Or some days, it’s a walk and
then a margarita, you know? Or it doesn’t even have to be pizza or alcohol, these extremes. You know, sometimes it’s
just a couple of stretches in my bedroom, naked
(laughs) after a shower. Just got 10 million subscribers! Just kidding. I’m not flattering
myself, just being funny. But yeah, sometimes it’s not the yoga practice that you think. And so, that’s how you get into
your yoga practice everyday, even when you’re sad or
feeling low on energy. You gotta be true to the moment and you gotta give yourself a free pass and understand that that’s the yoga, too. So for me, when I practice, I’m cultivating this insane amount of self-love the more I practice. And that’s not just yoga
talk, that is for real. I’m looking into the camera and telling you that is for real. And so, then, when I begin
to cultivate this self-love, I begin to get joy out of
giving myself those free passes, forgiving myself when I don’t go to class when I intended to, and I find other ways to feel good, okay? So, that’s neck rolls in the shower. That’s doing something nice for someone, having a glass of wine with a loved one and a real conversation. Maybe instead of tending
to yourself that day, you tend to someone
else and that feeds you. So, it just depends on
where you’re at that day and the real yoga moment is the listening. So, that’s how I do my yoga practice, even when I’m feeling sad. I stay present, I listen,
and then the next day, I come back even stronger. I was just talking about that. I had kind of a bad
week last week (laughs). maybe two weeks. And then this week, I just kind of, Monday hit and I reset and I was like, “Okay, I’m done with that, “time to shift my energy
into something new.” And I’m gonna help you with
that in the next couple weeks and we’re gonna talk
about what we’re gonna do in June on the channel,
which might help you too. Favorite position when you’re stressed? This is a great thing after
the last question too because as I said, your yoga practice doesn’t always have to be the same. You can change it up. My favorite position is to
widen my feet, hip width apart, and go into a forward fold. Anywhere. Do it at Target. Who cares? Great for the nervous system. Great to just kind of
“(groans)” rag doll it out and then you can slowly roll
up, hit the refresh button and giddy on up and go. That’s it. Seriously. It’s not a fancy yoga pose. Uttanasana is probably
my fave pose to go to when I’m stressed. Somebody asked me if I
have a daily routine. I feel like that kind of goes
with these questions today, or do I change it up? Totally change it up. As I said, for me, the yoga,
the uniting of my mind, my body and my spirit and my heart is
really all about listening. Yesterday, I went to
the YMCA with my friend to learn a core workout. Oh! And I ran into a
Yoga with Adriene friend. If you are watching this, “Hello to you fit man,
handsome fit man, and thank you “for saying hello and that
was fun to kind of connect.” Cause I never go to the gym anymore so it was fun to see a Yoga
with Adriene friend there. So that was my yoga yesterday. We did some stretching on the mats and then I learned a
friend’s core yoga routine, which totally inspired me. And then, I didn’t end up
going to the class that I was going to go to that evening. I stayed home and worked
and that was that. So I absolutely switch it up. Again, stay present with
the listening, and… be open to letting your
practice evolve too. Sometimes if you just hit
the same practice every time, and I’m really into this
as a teacher lately, you gotta be you in the moment. You got to listen to the
birds, listen to the weather, the quality of air in the room. Pay attention to how you
feel in the present moment and then you’re going to get
the best out of your practice. So yeah, totally change it up. When you’re at home in
Austin, what’re your hobbies? I don’t really wanna talk about myself, but this came up a lot, so I’ll answer it. What kinds of things you do for fun? (quietly laughs) I like to go to the movies. I like to go to Barton Springs. It’s almost that time of year here. Also, I like to swim. I definitely like to do
anything with the dog. Mostly to wear him out but
also because I love him. Walking (sighs) I need to do, you know how we have Tennis elbow, I need to do a yoga for the Chuckit! Thumbs up on this video if you
know what I’m talking about. If you have a Chuckit. Shout out to Chuckit users everywhere. Oh my God, so good if
you have a active dog. I like to hang out with friends. I like to go to theater
shows, puppet shows, I mentioned the movies. Here in Austin we have
a summer film series, at the beautiful historic
Paramount Theatre. I can’t wait for that to happen. Where they show all kind
of like old classic movies, my favorite. It’s really fun. It’s also really well air
conditioned so in the Texas summer heat, it’s a nice place to go. What else do I do? I like margaritas. I like to drink margaritas
and eat Mexican food with people I love. I like to go to the park. I like to… go to yoga. I mean I love to teach and
I love to share this message of find what feels good
here in Austin too, because a lot of my
friends don’t even realize kind of what we have
going on the internet. So I kind of like to kind
of welcome them into that. What else? I guess that’s it. I spend a lot of time at home these days, which is different, years past,
so it’s nice to be at home. Honestly, I’m going to
be traveling a lot more, so I look forward to what
that brings to my kind of daily routine and so
far every time I leave, it just makes me love you know, home more. Can Benji be in more videos? That came up a couple times
and I think it’s cute. Again, not too serious
questions here today. But the answer is yes! We will bring Benji into
more videos, starting now. Benji! Can you believe this is a six
month old Blue Heeler puppy just chillin like a villan? Hey, can you said hi to the camera? Wanna come up here? (pats leg) No. Benji! Come here. You’re such a good dog. Yes you are. Thumbs up to dog lovers and animal lovers out there, every where. If anyone is concerned about my voice, I think its just because I had coffee, an Americano this morning. I don’t think anything’s wrong with it but, I anticipate that
someone’s gonna bring that up. Subscribe to the newsletter
if you haven’t already. Subscribe to the channel,
duh! If you haven’t already. Invite your friends. Thank you so much for sharing the channel with your loved ones. We have definitely heard your requests. We’re gonna go into more
in-depth questions in the future. We have free yoga videos
coming at you every Wednesday. May is almost up. (blows out) Woo! In June, we’re gonna
kinda embrace fitness. So, I definitely love to talk
about the integrity of yoga and honor the history and
the philosophy of yoga, but, I just want to let you
know right now that in June, we’re gettin fit. We’re kinda doing a fitness
focus and so we have some ideas on how to do that with you. We’re definitely going
to bring EMPOWER back and we want to invite you to do that with us. Even if you’ve done it
already, we’re gonna talk more about that later. We’ll work together as a kula, as a group. So don’t make any other yoga challenge or fitness plans for June. I invite you to get fit
with us and we’re basically just going to kind of heed the
call or answer the request to get fit for the summer and
I want to do it with you. So in June, we’re going to get sexy basically is what I’m trying to say. Just kidding. Thank you so much for all your questions. I look forward to having
more conversations with you. We have so much going on. I just invite you to stay connected, keep checking in with me and
I’ll keep cheeking…(laughs) Keep checking in with you. That’s it for the vlog today. We have a new video that
I’m really excited about coming up next week. And, I’ll see you on the mat. I guess that’s it for now,
love you guys so much! Take good care. Namaste. (light guitar music)

  1. I just discovered your channel and I am beyond happy! You are just what I needed…. Thank you making this videos! They are amazing! 💜

  2. Just want to say thank you 🙂 I have a trapped nerve in my lower back and my flexibility was awful. After 4 years of acute pain and surgery (which didn't work!) I have finally found some comfort and ease. It has also opened up a new sense of wellbeing and peace, which has been truly lovely. I feel hope for the future now, and your easy non-judgmental attitude and kindness speaks volumes. Namaste from England!

  3. I know I'm a bit late to the party but Adriene, I adore you and your videos!! I've been so unhappy with my life recently after moving out of my long term boyfriend's house and being alone in the countryside of Japan. I was drinking too much and laying in bed all day feeling sorry for myself, but committing to Yoga Camp and setting intentions for myself has helped me so much. THANK YOU for being amazing and please don't making videos.

  4. more puppy please!

  5. Does anybody know if she really posted a vlog about how she started doing yoga and about her journey? i cannot seem to find it. i would be really grateful i really want to see it 🙂 THANKS!!!

  6. Do you do yoga with your dog? Can you do a DOGA video so mine can join in?

  7. I want to thank you for your realness and honesty! It's so refreshing. I decided to start yoga about a month ago, knowing I needed to stretch and heal my body. I found you and instantly fell in love! You see, I'm 38, and in April of 2015, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a chemo, a bilateral mastectomy, radiation and a complication after surgery that almost took my life… along with another surgery that saved it, but also caused more damage to my right chest. I was always a "flexible" person, and now I can barely get my arms behind my back. My PT says I have full range of motion, but it's not my FROM. I just finished day 24 of the 30 day challenge, and I'm getting my ROM back! There are hiccups along the way, because of my job as a server at a pizza joint (I hear you like pizza), but I wake up almost every morning now, looking forward to what your practice is going to teach me that day. Every day is a day of survival for cancer survivors. I'm learning this. It's not something most people think about. Like myself, I thought, once you've kicked it's ass, you're good. I've learned, that's not the case… AT ALL! Every day I struggle with pain from the drugs I need to take to keep it from coming back and from the surgeries. But now before I get out of bed, I've learned to roll my wrists and roll my feet, and show this body a little extra love. I get my 3 boys off to school, and I do my morning yoga practice, and my body feels better. I feel better in my skin! You've given me that, and I thank you! From the bottom of my heart… THANK YOU! Perhaps one day, you'll be back in the Seattle area, and I'll get to meet you and treat you to a mean margarita and pizza from my place!. 😉 Sincerely, Katie @katiesimmons10

  8. i think i figured out how a practice works. what are your feeling on teaching? any tips?

  9. Dipped in and out of the 30 day yoga camp during my last year of uni, so just wanted to say thank you for getting me through. When I felt lost under the pressure of uni, family and just being a human a daily practice just gave me the space the to collect my being.Thank you for being awesome 🙂

  10. Thank You Sista LOVE from Blowing Rock NC

  34. This video, so different than YWA, similarly spectacular and much appreciated!

  35. Hey girl. I love your videos. I do one every morning. I don't even want to try other youtube yogis. I just want to say, almost every video you tell yourself to stop talking or stop being silly, but I think you are hilarious and cool. I love your approach to Yoga. It's very relate-able. YOU DO YOU GIRL!

  36. Thank you for being you! Thank you for sharing all that you do. I have grown my entire practice from watching your videos at home. It has changed my life. Thank you!!♡♡♡ May 2018 will be 2 years of my yoga journey! I have grown so much! Thank you again for the 100th time 😄😄😄😍😍

  37. i was doing some light yoga stretches while watching this video. i have learned to freestyle just a little bit already!

    i love how you encourage everyone to have more self-love and to be more compassionate. i started on december 6th and have been practicing almost daily. i missed two days since i started and i made an active decision to not beat myself up over it. it felt good. and then it was easier to get back into the flow afterwards without the extra pressure. 🙂

  38. My dog requires two balls to be thrown before she reacts. Double chuck it elbow and I am 75. Sometimes I just pick up the slimy balls! Love doing yoga with you to the best of my ability at my advanced age.

  39. The TRUE series is my favorite so far but I did 3 others 30 day courses.

  40. <3

  41. the question with Benji rules!!! what a question, made my day!!!:)))

  42. What if all of your thoughts came true? That's a good one to consider!! Powerful.

  43. Hello Adriene. I live in Turkey, how can I get one of the T-shirts you design? I really want to have one or two. 🙏

  44. Love your space! Feel like I'm listening to my neighbor 🙏 namesta my friend

  45. I love seeing "snapshots" of your home. It's so beautiful. Someday soon I'll be looking into a home of my own; yours is so bright and beautiful-major inspo! Not to mention, on a side note, those are the best hobbies!

  46. I love how real you are ! You really are one if my Soul Sisters and I am thankful for you 😍😍😍

  47. You are a positive and inspiring person and I love your teachings. This is the first time I try yoga and you have made me feel welcome and empowered! Thank you. Also, Benji is adorable!

  48. Old video but thumbs up for chuckit elbow. I'm a dog walker and that thing is a forever attachment to my arm

  49. Lovely dog oooh! is that your laundry on the desk? Nice hoose.

  50. How do you care for your skin?

  51. I'm on Day 8 of the 30-day challenge and am smiling a load, actually it's starting to annoy people! Lol! Thank you for keeping it light and fun. See you on the mat xxx

  52. Yoga teacher award! So so good xI keep thinking about doing a class if I’m brave but in the mean time …Thank you Adriene.#two days in one:)

  53. u rock

  54. You are wonderful. I know it must be so hard to be a public figure.

  55. The credit goes to you if I say I love yoga. I had lot of health issues. I don't even know whether I'm in depression or not. But I loved the way you teach yoga and I wanted to follow your instructions. You always give a lot of options when you teach yoga. You seriously have positive energy radiate around you. And that's why I love you.

  56. That was the first time I've been listening to your vlog apart from practising with you and I'll definitely keep on watching more of them! Including the old ones 🙂

  57. You're such a lovely person, Adriene ❤

  58. I absolutely love your channel. I am completely new to yoga but have been getting up every morning at 5:30 to turn on one of your videos for a morning routine. Thank you for posting.

  59. you are so awesome! You make Yoga relaxing, silly, and completely enjoyable! Gave me a new love and desire to keep at it!

  60. Hi Adrienne, just wanted to thank you so much for your channel, your amazing content, videos and personality ! Yoga was always something I wanted to do as a musician but I never managed to be brave enough to start and always told myself I couldn't do it because I was so so bad at any type of physical exercise and my asthma made it difficult !!! 2 months ago I nearly died and had a prolonged stay in the hospital. Getting so sick and feeling that I was such a stranger to my body and so disconnected was a true revelation. I discover your videos a while back and have been going to the mat nearly daily since then ! I can already see such positive changes !!! I was left very weakened and with many tensions and now I already feel so much stronger, confident and comfortable in myself physically and emotionally. I know it is a long comment, sorry for babbling but I really wanted to thank you !

  61. hi im on my third day for yoga it has changed me so much 😃

  62. Thank you ☺️ I found your videos when I was in a bad place within my own head about a year ago and your videos were one of the few things I looked forward to. I then got pregnant and stopped doing the yoga, just because I wasn’t physically able as I was so ill but couldn’t wait to start again. Our little girl actually died during labour and it’s been pretty horrific but I’m finally in a place where I can see the light again and the first thing on my mind was your videos. Doing the 30 day challenge and I’m loving every second. It’s the highlight of my day and it gives me the little boost that gets me through the rest of my day and i wish I’d started again sooner. So much love and gratitude to you 💕

  63. I'll admit I used to find Adrienne very irritating, and difficult to follow along to, so I practised with other instructors. I'm a big fan of udemy, and have completed a few yoga challenges. I saw one "30 days of yoga" for free! I immediately enrolled, then to my irritation realised it was Adrienne. Well you can't delete, only archive. Course went into archive, and I did yoga with another instructor.
    Eventually I decided to do yoga with Adrienne on alternate days, and to my surprise was no longer irritated (I do still have to occasionally look at the video to see what she's talking about, as phrases such as "keep the integrity in your thigh" is meaningless) but on the whole i've got more used to her way of teaching.
    Adrienne is genuinely warm and encouraging, and she makes yoga look effortless, which is the mark of a true master. When I finish the udemy course, i'll write an honest review. And btw, i'm now rocking the boat pose and figure of 8.

  64. yyooooggaaaaa! + pizzaaaa + you're awesome!! <3 😀

  65. Thank you Adrien ! You inspire me everyday and I enjoy your yoga channel . I was in a dark place in my life mentally and physically but ever since I started following you I feel amazing!

  66. Yes! Yoga for the ChuckIt! haha

  67. Today was my Day 7 yoga video and I did it in a bad mood, but then I saw this video and it helped me to clear my mind.

  68. Hi! Thanks for the awesome vids, as always. I heard you mention a chuck-it! 🙂 It's definitely a life saver for active dogs but I just wanted to give everyone a heads up to be careful as it may have one downside (for me it did). I used it almost every day for a few weeks and got tennis elbow. 🙂 Take care!

  69. te amo bai

  70. after doing yoga with you in the videos, even watching this feels like a meditation; your voice and energy and attitude are soothing and literally have me breathing deeper and having more awareness into my body and spirit ^_^ Namaste

  71. You are amazing!! what you are doing is what originally yoga was intended to do by Patanjali, just spread happiness and awareness. Its because of people like you, the world still exists 🙂

  72. Wait! This all begs the q: How did you get into yoga?

  73. Im watching this . Because you're also my favourite stranger too. lovely

  74. Go to the movie and eat the pizza that is so true. Don't ever restrict yourself from what you want. It only makes something deeper in your heart worse. Learn to trust yourself.

  75. Adriene, I know this is an old video but I've just started your 30 day yoga challenge (I'm on day 11) and I just wanted to say a huge thank you. I struggle with anxiety and can feel quite down sometimes, and a hot shower followed by one of your yoga videos has proved to be absolutely invaluable in turning my mood around and stopping me obsessing over the same thoughts over and over again. I can't even tell you how grateful I am. I didn't realise how yoga could seep into all aspects of your life, and how it's all about self-care, I used to just think it was holding some poses on a mat… but just 11 days in I can see and feel how it is changing things for me. THANK YOU!!!! 🙂 Here's to many more happy yoga days.

  76. I realize this was filmed 3 years ago. But I JUST got a Chuck it and damn! My tennis elbow is back! Did you ever film a video on Chuck it Elbow for dog lovers? Enjoyed your personal comments, thanks for being so real.

  77. Always enjoy doing Yoga with you :–)

  78. thank you for always bringing light and joy to my day.☺️💛👏🏽😊

  79. You're my that best friend who doesn't even know me :') love you

  80. What happened to your parents or was it just your mom.

  81. Hi Adriene, I am happy and grateful to have found you this year. I wrote a personal development book I sent to you. I wish I found you before I wrote it. I would have included a chapter on Yoga, and refer readers to you. Meditation and personal development lead me to you. You are doing so much to make the world a better place. You should be so proud. It is my dominant intent to feel good, and attract a great life. You help me do that! Namaste

  82. I'd love you to do an updated Q&A – 2018 style – for all the new yogis that have joined you since this one! 😀 x

  83. Thinking you might engage art openings and exhibitions,,,,,excursions and dialogue in concert with your yoga,,, paths of creativity,,,,,

  84. Hello Adriene. Thank you and as we say in French, "bonne continuation" 🙂
    You are God sent. May you always stay blessed 😍

  85. Benji , so adorable!

  86. You're so sweet! Benji's like 4 or something like that now, how exciting! I feel like the growth on your journey is amazing, keep finding what feels good! I love what yoga is for you, which sounds like life/meditation/awareness. I am a big fan of yoga, as it's made me feel like I can truly do anything. I have already wept joy after several practices from your TRUE series, and I got very emotional on day 30 of your Dedicate series hahaha, it was very nice! Thank you so much for all the hope and light you inspire others to hold for themselves and alongside you. I discovered your channel maybe 6-10 months ago from another channel I watch called Rainbow Harmony. So truly I am quite new to this yoga journey, but of course I found it at the right time ^.^ I am optimistic that I can heal my spine but I'm also fine with whatever happens lol. Take care Adriene, such an awesome channel, and such awesome energy you give+receive in the universe, thank you! Take care! <3 <3 <3 Love and light, Son Nguyen

  87. Thank you so much .I have watched your motivational video on YouTube creators* .

  88. Benji is such an important part of Yoga With Adriene that I sifted through all of these videos to find out how old he is. He's so calm and slow moving that I feared he was kind of old. Good to see that he has many co-host years ahead!

  89. Como puedo conectar con tigo para hacer una serie de yoga like

  90. 😍 beautiful you

  91. Yes like you bebe

  92. Oh man Adriene thank you. Needed to hear this from a fellow yoga teacher. As I received again alittle negative resistance on my request for collaboration with a local yogateacher!. :/

  93. Adriene naked stretching…. did I miss these videos? 25m subscribers added

  94. Thank you for sharing. Your videos have been a huge part of my healing. You make yoga feel more down to earth & doable to those of us newer to the practice. On another note, I had a red healer, best dog, so smart, amazing💛… but she had oodles of energy! Needed 3 hour hikes and lots of stimulus. It's so funny to see such a mellow healer. Benji is a doll. Love seeing him in videos. Love all dogs, but definitely a soft spot for healers. Lots of love to both of you. Much gratitude.

  95. But are you married tho

  96. Just came across this video after following you and doing daily yoga since January. I loved finding you here…..♥️

  97. Love the Q & A other vlog videos, would love to see more of them again!

  98. Benji is my buddy and Adriene I would love to take you to a 49er game then after that head out to the beach underneath the Golden Gate bridge take the ferry boat over to Sausalito and have a great dinner couple margaritas then the next day take you clothes shopping then the next day I've been a better Chinatown all the beautiful shops I get up there then the next day take you dancing then the next day take you sightseeing do you have a fun time you'll never forget my buddy Benji he's definitely included and the price is right all on me amen

  99. Isn't she great… It might just be my personality, and having delusions of grandeur again, but, I think the longer, 'un-edited', relatively 'unscripted' talks (where her beautifully exuberant personality shines through like the bright light at the center of the universe everything gravitates toward) is much more addictive than the yoga this woman guides people through… You'd be the luckiest man alive if you were the one to hold integral space within the atomic gravitational field of this lovely and magnificently attractive soul…
