Yoga Tips For The Hands | Yoga With Adriene


– Hi everyone.
Welcome to Yoga With Adriene. I’m Adriene and this is Benji and today we have some
yoga tips on the hands. So mostly about placement in
Downward Dog but a couple little things to just help inspire
or wake up your hands and your attention on your hands in your
asana practice in particular. So hop into something
comfy and let’s get started. (bright music) Okie doke my friends,
let’s begin today’s practice in a nice, comfortable
seat of your choice. We are looking
at the hands today in our practice but you also selected this video
probably in an effort to take some time for yourself,
learn something, explore, improve your practice
which of course has a direct effect on your life so let’s
go ahead and start by taking a moment to just tune in,
collect ourselves, connect to the breath
and find what feels good. So wherever you are,
sit up nice and tall. Find length through the crown and you can close your eyes
if you’re feeling adventurous or soften your gaze down
gently past your nose. Then draw the hands
mindfully together at the heart and take a deep breath in. And as you exhale,
just relax your shoulders. Let go of the day thus far and just take a second
to feel your breath. Feel yo’self and trust that this is
valuable time and energy and that you’ve
carved out for you. We always talk about the journey
being the reward in yoga but then we bypass the journey and
the process of learning a lot. So I admire you for taking
time to explore with this video. And play. Alright, just take one
more cycle of breath here. Inhaling in. And exhaling out. And then we’ll open the eyes. You might have a little fun. Flutter the eyelashes open. Benji’s alert. Here we go, we’re gonna
press the elbows left to right. Really feeling this connection,
palm to palm. It’s holy palmer’s kiss. Name where that’s from down in
the comment section down below. So a nice active press here. Again, elbows left to right. Shoulders are gonna wanna creep
up here but we’re gonna keep them drawing down, lifting the
sternum up towards the thumbs. Spread the fingertips super wide
so thumbs are reaching towards the sternum and pinkies are
reaching towards the front. So they’re actively
stretching away from each other. Great, take another
deep breath in. And then on the exhale,
close the fingers, bring everything in towards
each other, keep pressing. Open, spread
the fingertips wide. And close.
And twice more. Open. And close. Woo and last one, open. And close.
Awesome, take a rest. Just allow your wrists
or your hands to rest gently on your knees. So the thing is
in these exercises, and I’m gonna link to a healthy
amount of really awesome yoga for the hands and wrists videos. These videos have some of my
favorite, favorite things that I just teach over and over and
over again for building strength in the hands and wrists. Stability as well
so check them out. But the thing is you have
to remember if you’re really feeling it in your hands,
you’re probably gonna benefit from regular practice. So the more you do it, right? The bigger shift and you’ll
start to notice in your poses, in your asana practice as well. Alright, bring the
hands together again. Interlace the fingertips nice
and easy just press the palms forward, stretching
through the forearms. Plug the shoulders into socket. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. The next time you
breathe out take your hands, press them, slide them
over towards the right. Good, breathe in,
come back to center. Breathe out as you take them, slide them over
towards the left. Benji, Benji! What’s up, buddy? Inhale, come back to center. We’re gonna release, palms face up now
on the knees or the thighs. Great, index finger
and thumb come together. We press them together.
Keep breathing. Then just
continuing down the line, pressing into all fingers. Back and forth, back and forth,
back and forth. This reminds me of a video we
have on the Find What Feels Good membership, it’s a Kundalini
meditation called Satanama. Of course in this case we’re
actively pressing the fingerprints together,
active, active. In that one it’s a bit softer
but it’s an amazing meditation. If you’re interested in it,
go check it out. Alright, release that. Send the fingertips forward,
palms face down. Then draw your
hands into knuckles, into fists and you’re just
gonna draw the knuckles down. Woo, yeah and then up. Down and then up. Ooh! Down. (chuckles) And then up. And down, last time,
and then up. And now open the palms
wide, super wide like starfish. Dial the pinkies down,
out, externally rotate, down, down, down and then up. Woo! Down. And then up. One more time, down. And then up. And you can notice how it all
moves together in one moving part which we’re gonna put
into play now on all fours. So go ahead and
come to all fours. Nice and easy. Okay, so a tip here is each time
you’re placing the hands to the earth you have a chance to really just thank
the earth. Right? It’s about alignment but it’s
also about like the meaning you give to things and that
can really help inform your alignment in a way that I think we should explore
a little more in yoga. So come on down. Knees are
underneath the hips, wrists are underneath
the shoulders. And you might just
notice your pattern here of coming a little bit narrow. Rarely do I see
someone go too wide. Usually it’s too narrow. So bring your wrists
right underneath your elbow, elbow right underneath
the shoulder for Tabletop. And take a look at your hands. Spread them super wide here so
you feel the webbing between each finger stretching. And then see if you
can really root down through your fingerprints. Really root down
through your knuckles. Keep going. And then reaffirm this
connection that is between your index finger and thumb. Yes, this is
where we want to be. So we’re taking pressure out of
the wrists almost completely by really connecting
through the knuckles, through the fleshy part between
the index finger and thumb and clawing through the fingertips. Keep breathing here. Now elbow creases
are gonna shine forward, biceps towards the
front edge of the mat. So you start with the hands and
then we allow that to rotate up towards the shoulders. And it’s one
big connection here. Great, let’s take it
Cat-Cow ’cause why not? This time is valuable but also
to add breath and movement to see if you can maintain what
you have going on in the hands. So whenever you’re
ready drop the belly, open the chest. Breathe in. And then exhale, really establish or re-establish
with the hands as you round through the spine. So there’s this yielding, you’re
pressing away from the yoga mat. We’re not just collapsing
into the hands or the wrists. Yes. And with practice
and with strengthening, stretching, building stability
in the hands and wrists this will become easier. Okay, come back to
a nice neutral spine. Now we’re gonna continue the
rotation all the way around. You might need to walk
your knees in just a bit. And in particular if you feel
any pain around the wrists, go ahead and walk the knees in and start nice and
close to the fingertips. So same thing, I’m trying to
claw through the fingertips. Connect knuckle to mat. Really, really strong. And then establish or
re-establish over and over this connection that’s between
my index finger and thumb. In time you’ll be
able to walk back here, create more space, more length. But again, if you feel any
pinching or any pain at all, just walk those
knees up and work here. So this is also
great to do on a wall. You can do this one hand on a
wall one way and then the other, one at a time or
both at the same time. Take one more
cycle of breath here. You’re doin’ awesome. And then return
to Tabletop Position. Really be meticulous
about the hands here. The wrists stacked
underneath the shoulders. And then memorize
this for your practice. Tabletop Position, this
nice strong base to work from. Cool. Awesome. From here
we’ll curl the toes under, send the hips back. Just take a second,
come off the wrists. You can rotate them
one way and then the other. Okay, so another little tip
for today’s practice is the placement of hands
in Downward Facing Dog. So you can check out the
Downward Dog Foundations video which is super old (laughs)
but check it out and then in addition you’ll have the
hand and wrist videos in the description but one thing I’m
seeing a lot lately in photos and videos and definitely in
studio classes and live events is the placement for the hands for Downward Dog
is really narrow. So let’s come to check that out. So we’re gonna
come back to all fours. We’re gonna walk the hands out
this time creating diagonal line from wrist to shoulder. So again,
same thing as in Table, we have to actually
start at the bottom, start at the base. So I’m seeing
beautiful hand placement. Maybe even a great
connection of fingerprints, of knuckles working to spread
that weight out on the palm, not the wrist but my hands
are pretty narrow usually here, I’m seeing a lot so when I come
into Downward Dog I can’t really find a lot of rotation
in my shoulders here. I can’t get my shoulder blade
to drop down and wrap around the body because my
hands are too narrow. I don’t have a fighting chance. So go ahead and
let’s just explore, we’ll just workshop
a little bit today, go ahead and bring your pinkies towards the outer
edges of your mat. Like all the way. And then place your hands there. Almost to where your pinky nail
is kind of coming off the mat. And then imagine you’re opening
a pickle jar with your right hand to the right. Elbow crease,
everything connects, you know that. And then left hand to the left,
everything connects. So elbow crease is forward. And if you have
a lot of mobility, hypermobility even or just plain
old flexibility in your elbows, you’re gonna want
to really work hard to maintain that micro-bend. And that’s really for everyone
but if you have hypermobility you’re gonna wanna
just keep it on your list, baby. So hands are nice and wide here. My index finger and thumb are
pointing toward the front edge of the mat so not
towards each other. So for example,
peek at the video here, instead of placing the hands
like this for Downward Dog, I’m placing them like this. Let’s see what happens. Find the connection
with your hands. Connect that to the elbow
joint to the shoulder joint. Wrap the shoulder blades around. Curl the toes under
and send the hips up high with this nice wide base. Ah. Pedal it out, explore. Nice wide base of the hands
which translates all the way up to the shoulders
which translates to all of the shoulder blade, the lat, the way
I can relax my traps, and even the way I engage
transverse abdominis and hug my low ribs in for
this connection here. So all because of my hand
placement I’m able to find this chain, this connection. Inhale, exhale
to slowly release. Nice work. Just come to a nice, easy seat. Your choice. We’re just gonna cross one
arm over the body here like so. Wiggle the fingertips maybe
and then release and switch. So I have a friend who’s also my coach at
the gym who often talks about connection versus position
and sometimes I think we get a little wrapped up in learning
the correct or most traditional posture and we
forget how important it is for us to make
that connection. And if you do any sort of
resistance training or strength training you know
what I’m talking about too. So just kind of bringing
that into our practice. Okay, come into a Dundasana now. So you’re gonna come
to sit on your bum. Flex the feet
up towards the sky. We’ll take the
fingertips forward. Draw ’em into knuckles again. And once again,
we’ll just go down with the knuckles and then up. And down and up. Try to sit up
nice and tall here, down and up. Down and up. And then open the palms wide. You’re gonna spiral
them down and then up. Down and then up. Down and then up. And then down and the
next time you’re down, go ahead and take your right
hand to your left fingers and press nice and easy the forearm and the wrist
through for a stretch. And then switch. Right fingertips down,
left fingertips come in. Big stretch here.
Breathing deep. Excellent, then release. You’re gonna bring now
the knuckles to the ground and you’re gonna walk them
back so that your wrists come close to the earth. Then we’ll loop the
shoulders and you can open the palms wide here.
They kind of blossom out as you feel nice, deep stretch. Lift from the pelvic floor. Flex your feet toward your face. Big breath in. Long breath out. And now Staff Pose, traditional. Bring the hands
right at the waistline. Spread the fingers. Press away from your yoga mat. If the fingers or hands,
excuse me, don’t come to the mat,
just tent the palms, press into your fingers,
lift up through the chest. Breathing deep. You’re doing awesome. Gorgeous. Then send the
fingertips forward. Slowly roll all the
way down to your back, nice and easy. Bring the knees
up towards the chest. Hug them in. Rock a little side to side. Find what feels good. And then from here you could
slide your hands to the backs of the thighs rock all the way up. Maybe you rock a couple
times if it feels awesome. And if you’re ready to close out
this little workshop then come to a nice comfortable seat or
pause the video and start to work in your Downward Dog,
your Plank Position, Gate Pose, Tabletop and play
with this position of the hands and notice how the position of
the hands has everything to do with how you connect with the
rest of your body when you’re doing those
weight bearing postures. I’ll link to other videos in
the description down below. If you’re ready to rock out,
let’s bring palms together. Start to create a little
friction, a little heat. Nice, swift rubbing of the palms together. Sit up nice and tall. And then exhale, bring
your hands to your chest. Just feel the energy. Give thanks for this time
that you’ve taken for yourself. May it inspire you to
get on the mat more and more. Remember a little goes a long
way and regular practice and regular check-ins with
your breath and your body will bring the most results. Bring the palms together. Thumbs up to the third eye. Inhale in. Exhale to bow. Thanks everyone. Namaste. (upbeat music)

  1. Hello my friends! This video is for all of you that have asked about wrist fatigue or pain. Enjoy! xx

  2. Issues with wrists is one of the main complaints I get from teaching Yoga classes. Great video 🙂

  3. I just read the holy palmers part in Romeo and Juliet earlier today!

  4. I am new to yoga and really enjoying your videos. Your beauty, commentary, alternative poses and just a slight bit of nerdiness has really made this enjoyable.
    I laughed so hard when you did "bubble gum bubble gum" in a previous video.

  5. romeo and Juliette …shakespear ❤️

  6. Hi Adrienne! Can you make a video for face massage? I'm feeling tension between my eyes and on my cheeks :/

  7. Benji is a beautiful animal. <3

  8. Do you have one for feet (plantar fasciitis)?

  9. I love you so much,Adriene. This practice was awesome for me (24 years old mom) after spending whole day with my 7months baby girl in my arms. Hugs from Poland 🙂

  10. So nice

  11. This was a nice one to do on such a hot day! And I'm thinking I can do some of these moves easily at the office as well.

  12. I'm playing flute in the play "Shakespeare in Love", so I used this video to stretch my hands and arms. And yes, I recognized the quotation! "For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch, And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss. Good pilgrim, you don't give your hand enough credit." RJ Act I Scene 5.

  13. I have RSI from years of being a barista and now gardening and this has really helped me. I stopped doing yoga a couple of months ago (separate reasons) and in that time my wrists have become extremely sore and I am not able to do what I once was. This has given me the confidence to get back in to it.

    So strange, yesterday I was complaining about how sore my wrists have become lately, and today this video pops up. Amazing.

  14. A very good practice for hands. It would be great for my mom. 😉 It stretchs out very well. Like a special care for. Yoga is multipurpose. Namaste.

  15. I really need inspiration one like equals 1 day of doing this

  16. this is a great idea! I work on the computer; a lot of mouse work/manipulation and it's getting to where I really feel an arthritis type tension/pain. This felt so good today!

  17. thankyou! the connection between my left thumb and forefinger has been a but funky lately. hope to be more conscious of how i put weight on it. and changing the hands in down dog was felt all the way to my lower back and the hamstrings, even more space. namaste, adriene!

  18. I always had a pretty wide base for downward dog, but that little angle change of pointing the thumb towards the top of the mat really shifted something about it. Thanks for these ideas!

  19. Lovely practice, my hands and wrists feel so much more supple and light. Thanks

  20. It's so satisfying when you're right, haha! I got into downward dog there and said, 'Oh!' as I felt loads more space in my shoulders, as promised 🙂

  21. I love the hand placement tips on downward facing dog. You are a natural trainer, a beautiful voice, calming and encouraging. I love just listening to you, I think I could meditate to your voice. You should consider doing meditation videos too. (I will take 10% of your profits for suggesting it haha)

  22. Wowza – there is SO much wonderfulness in this practice – SO glad you shared it – SO glad I did it – BIG hugs and Happy Tuesday y'all : )

  23. Thank you! I always have wrist and hand pain/stiffness and as an artist this is a much needed exercise. Definitely going in my favorites!!

  24. Wrists and my knees really test me ! I can't sit back on knees or stay on wrists to long but I'm hanging in 😀

  25. This practice really helped my tennis elbow feel better ( i don’t play tennis) so 🙏🏻 Adrian ❤️

  26. Benjamin is so handsome and a perfect yoga companion . What breed is he ?

  27. What a great practice! Have you considered doing a 30-day meditation journey? Could be a great way to incorporate mediation into our daily practice!

  28. i become aware that my hands need attention more because this is one of my frequently used tools in my every day living. I heard my knuckles cracking and it feels good. Thank you Adriene.

  29. Adriene I haven’t thanked you in a while so thank you so very much. You have helped through the deepest darkest of times and your so kind to us and lift our hearts so very much. I’m a musician and can’t wait to do this every other day along with that heart chakra which is sooo magical to remove bad thoughts and make them poof bye bye
    But seriously Thank you more than you could ever possibly know

  30. hi adriene!! i love your videos so much and was wondering if we could get a throat chakra video? ive been feeling pretty closed off in that area, much love, thank u always 💛

  31. Hi Adriene. Is there another challenge coming up by any chance? I could use a 30-Day one… Lots of L.O.V.E., xx..

  32. I’m so excited to try this session. Last year, I was practicing yoga every day, then I experienced ulnar nerve neuropathy (dr suggested it might be from too much weight compression on my wrist impinging my nerve). I’ve since recovered and welcome the thoughtful practice you offer!

  33. I just want to say that, after years of finding the will to do yoga on a daily basis, I feel motivated to do yoga every day by watching your videos. Thank you and please keep posting more!!!

  34. I have a question, mostly unrelated to the video. I'm doing your 30 days of yoga playlist and I'm having trouble with 2 things: breathing steadily, and the sitting position at the beginning of most videos(?) That's like criss cross but the feet are in front of each other. It really hurts my right ankle, and I don't feel anything in my left.

    Sorry for the long winded, unrelated comment, I just thought you'd be more likely to see it here.

  35. Thank you, that was great .

  36. Thank you

  37. Thankiiuuuuuu❤

  38. That up and down wrist motion simple as it is is pretty amazing! Boosh!

  39. I have very limited range of motion in my wrists. They just don't bend backward the way most human wrists do! This makes a lot of the standard yoga things many take for granted (down dog, tabletop, that stretch with the fingers interlaced and palms out, pretty much anything involving the backward movement of the wrist, which seems like nearly everything) frustrating and occasionally painful for me. My wrists give out long before the rest of me every time. Several massage therapists have asked me if I was ever injured because what I have is "definitely not a normal range of motion." No trauma, pure genetics. Needless to say, I was a little nervous about this one because there's always been a nagging voice in my head that something is wrong with me or that I can't get the full benefits of yoga because my body gets in the way, even though I'm already more calm and flexible than I've ever been in my life at 34, and getting stronger every day. That's a lot of words for what I really want to say, which is "thank you" so very much, for all the helpful advice in this video and for once again showing me and a whole lot of other folks that you can do so much with what sometimes feels like very little. I and my little oddball wrists thank you, Adriene!

  40. Thank you Adriene for your dedication to your YouTube yoga community! You help me stay healthy, strong, and focused! Love you lots! ❤️

  41. I don’t know how popular it would be but I’d love a yoga for rowers video! Please please! Thank you Adriene for all of your content I absolutely love your channel and appreciate your work!

  42. Hi Adriane can u make a video on yoga for lowering cholesterol! Thx!

  43. Hi adrienne, i was wondering if you could make a video for people with mobile joints (hypermobile? Maybe, not that great at english)
    i recently learned that stretching my joints could cause me harm and that I instead should focus on muscle build up around those joints, I know some of the more common places of high mobility are wrists, shoulders, hips and knees.
    I love your videos and doing yoga, usually I just alter the practice a bit like skipping child’s pose or other. You are great bye.

  44. Hello Adriene! I hope you see my post.

    I thank you from my bottom of my heart for your work and for changing my life, because of you I do Yoga twice a day to lose weight.. I eat so much food and I need to burn as much as possible and I used to do cardio and stuff but they are way too harsh for me because you have to run and jumb and these stuff are not my cup of tea and even lifting weights and going to the gym and spend too much money is no for me, but since I found your channel I fall in love with Yoga I didn't have much to know about Yoga and didn't think I could lose weight with it. It's great and very gentle and you make it even more fun and motivating! I'm currently working hard on losing weight so wish me luck Adriene ^__^!

  45. Hi Adriene. Have all of your 30 days of yoga. Except #4 can’t find that one. Please help.

  46. Started Another 30 day yoga challenge. It’s been such an amazing journey doing #yogawithadriene on YouTube! I started back in February with no big goals just to get back into something I have always had a passion for but lost for awhile. It’s been so empowering for my body mind and soul. I have learned over the past few months yoga isn’t about being a hard core flexible yogi but it’s about honoring your body and seeing changes in how you feel inside and out. What is also so very special is my kids see and want to join most of the time and baby franky is quite the baby yogi lol I am also so happy and excited to see family members starting their yoga journey and feeling amazing and seeing how much it helps your body feel! So thankful for #yogawithadriene And YouTube Channel so I can do this journey in the comfort of my own home and time. Hope this post is inspiring. Namaste the light in me honors the light in you 💕✌️🧘‍♀️

  47. Really great Adriene. I have tendon problems so this was awesome. ❤🌻

  48. Your yoga videos are amazing!

  49. Still to much weight bearing on the wrists. Especially when you have arthritis and no flexibility in fingers.
    Love the vids but a little too much talking and not enough flowing practise.

  50. Another amazing video Adriene ! This really helps my aching hands as physical therapist that utilizes my hands and as Pilates instructor. 😘🙏❤️ now I could help more 🙏😘❤️

  51. I'll state the obvious: we are all in love with this lady.

  52. Yoga with Beni!!! Agh!!! 🐺💙🥰

  53. Great help to improve downward facing dog!

  54. Thank you for all your wonderful videos! I would love a video to help relax the jaw or to ease jaw-pain <3

  55. Thank you Adriene. I am new to yoga and obsessed with your videos! I will practice this regularly to strengthen my wrists as they often ache during my practice x

  56. Do you have video for Yoga to PREVENT soreness? I just worked in the yard all day and I know I am going to be soar tomorrow!

  57. Very helpful

  58. Definitely have to work on my wrists. Thanks for this little diddy. Namaste Adriene and Benji 😊😊

  59. This video was a great help for hand positions. I had a shoulder operation after dislocation about 10 years ago and have always worried about it happening again but the way you explained arm and hand position has made it feel a lot more comfortable in downward dog. Wish I had been told before!

  60. Holy palmer’s kiss = Romeo and Juliet?

  61. ESSENTIAL

  62. I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist and my hands, wrists, and forearms have been in a lot of pain recently. I am relieved you made this targeted session! This may save my career! I felt 10 times better afterward. Thank you❤❤❤

  63. Hi Adriene ❤️ I follow your videos to practice daily since like forever, but I've never tried this rotated hand posture for downward dog before and I have to admit it makes a lot of difference, even though I don't have tight shoulders anymore. I don't understand if hands should be placed in the same way if we transition from downward dog to plank and viceversa. I'm trying to freestyle a bit before the ending of the video, as you suggest, and it seems this rotation in plank relieve some pressure I always feel in the wrists towards the inside of the body, but it's a bit strange to go down from plank in that hand position. I've checked the plank foundation video, and the downward dog too, and there you keep the index fingers parallel. A confused yogi here 😀
    Thank you for your precious videos 🙏🏼❤️

  64. Omg! I'm so glad I watched this video, it's a total revelation!
    I've been having "difficulties" with my wrists since I started doing yoga daily some years ago. Sometimes it would be really painful doing down dog and even cat/cow. Just changing my hand position like Adriene shows here I instantly felt the difference!
    Thanks for all your videos Adriene but especially this one! This has transformed my yoga practice completely!!!

  65. Wow I needed that!!!! Thank you!

  66. Great as usual

  67. This felt good, loved the hand stretches! Blessings your way!

  68. thank you so much!!!

  69. Hello,

    Could you please make a yoga video for Wakeboarders?

    One video for exercise before wakeboarding (prepare joints and muscles) and One after (relieve muscles). About 30-40 minutes each.

    Looking forward for your reply,

  70. Thank you for this one!! Thank you for helping this 65 yr old find her strength, calm and inner joy! And I tried the Down Dog suggestions and WOW! It went from an ok position for me to one of power, calm and ease. Ive been practicing with Adriene almost daily now, for almost 3 months. What a huge and loving positive impact in and on my life. I cannot express the deep gratitude I have for you and all you do, for all of us!

  71. What do I do if the pose at 8:00 still hurts my inner wrist even doing as you say? Specifically my inner wrist on the side my thumbs are on hurts when I press into thumb and index finger.

  72. What kind of dog is benji??

  73. I can't believe what a change I felt in downward dog when I rotated my hands differently. It took all the pressure off my wrist and I felt so much stronger! Thank you!!

  74. As a pianist, I know how important hand placement is. That being said, I was shocked during this video to discover that I've been using poor hand placement over the 6 or 7 years I've been practicing yoga. I'm so grateful for this video so that I could fix it!The pickle jar trick just made something click between my hands and body. Thank you Adriene! Much love

  75. that was a good adddition to reconnect the core today, i can recommend doing them one after the other 🙏

  76. Love you love Shakespeare thank you x

  77. Seriously your best video ever!! Thank you so much, I have been struggling with my cat cow and downward dog for a few months with a wrist refusing to take any weight, this just transformed that and stretched my hands (also tired as I am a tattoo artist) in ways they have NEVER been stretched before! Loving your new, more peaceful and grounded vibe, I feel like you've had some big shifts in your psyche? Keep it up sis xx

  78. Thank you as always for the amazing video. It's almost as if you can read my mind and know what I'm going to need each day in my practice.

  79. I am recovering from a badly sprained wrist so this practice is just what I need. I will be coming back to this video and taking in the lessons on placement too.

  80. Better late than never🙏✨
    SO MUCH needed hand stretch,🙌 thank youuuu again for your generous practice🌹

  81. Wow love Benji!😚 Adorable as always! I loved how he was just so relaxed in the beginning

  82. Loved this lesson! Is there a foot one also? ❤️

  83. Day 208 🙌🏽 beautiful practice I’ll use this as a warm up before my next handstand practice 🙏🏾

  84. Tnx appi😍

  85. My hands were sore and inflamed from painting my apartment for several days. After just one session with this video, the swelling has visibly diminished and the pain has also lessened. Thanks, Adrienne! I'm tuning in from Saudi Arabia. Thank God for youtube and great teachers like you!

  86. Really enjoyed this practice – going back to basics & feeling the difference. Thx Adriene x

  87. Dental hygienist here! Much needed love for my wrists and hands. Thanks, Adriene!

  88. Thank you Adriene! My hands and wrists feel nice and open and stretched. I’ve been really struggling with them aching and hurting and not being very strong recently and it’s good to keep them mobilised and cared for. 🙏🏼

  89. I have to Thank you so much again. I have so much help from you. I have sclerosis My hands are damaged, and you help me so much with my balance ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  90. Thank you so much, Adriene! I’m a massage therapist and needed some tips for my downward dog. I am just getting back into yoga and this at home practice with you is awesome! I’m doing a 100 day yoga challenge along with a 30 day #100glutechallenge. I’m on day 7 with you! Woo hoo!
    Ps- it’s a sea star, not a star fish, common mistake 😁🙏

  91. Thank you for the great teachings! I just noticed that you sound a bit like Nina Dobrev! Similar voices ☺️ you have a great voice, very pleasant to listen to

  92. Wonderful! Thank you so much for all your videos 🙂

  93. I cannot thank you enough for this video… I used to try to start and always fail at the downward facing dog. My wrists were in so much pain and I felt like I am failing all the time. My thinking was "if you cannot do this there is no use to continue".. I followed your directions from this video and I did it! And I am so happy and I thank you so so much ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  94. Cya tommorow, getting off the couch.

  95. i thing that you need a rest . one kiss

  96. Omg thank you! After all these years you just showed me my hand placement has been wrong. I have arthritis in my hands and my wrists and hands hurt so bad. What a huge difference rotating my hands out makes! A life changing yoga video for me.

  97. I've always been unsure about my hand placement in down dog. But doing like that just feels so much better now. Thank you!

  98. Good morning Adriene.
    Happy Wednesday.
    Thank you for yet Another Lovely Yoga with You.
    Always Perfect!
    😘😊❤️🙏🌹

  99. WOW did my wrists and hands need that stretch. I love a good foundations class, thank you Adriene!

  100. I have had a severe wrist injury that has pained me for years. I am also a climber. This literally fixed it, in one day. I don't know how you work your magic, but it's real. Thank you for teaching me how to better practice self-love, gratitude to my body, and mindfulness. I will share your techniques and videos with everyone who I can!
