Day 9 – Full Potential Detox Practice – 30 Days of Yoga

Day 9 – Full Potential Detox Practice – 30 Days of Yoga

Hey my friends, welcome to 30 Days of Yoga
with Adriene. I’m Adriene, and today is Day 9, I’m feeling fine, want to get divine on
my mat with you, so let’s get started. All right my friends, today we’re going to
begin flat on our backs. So take a second to get settled in and center yourself on your
mat, or your towel, or wherever you’re practicing today, in the grass, in the sand. And then once you get settled in take a moment
to rotate the ankles a couple times, and maybe rock on the heels is nice. And we just kind
of put away the to-do list and we put away the day thus-far, or perhaps the top of the
day, top of the morning. And you’re easing into your day right here, right now with your
yoga practice. Then allow the toes to fall out and we’ll
do the same thing with the hands, just spreading the fingers wide and the wrists rotating one
way and then the other. I really like to make the most out of my practice and that leads
into my everyday life, really trying to make the most out of your precious time and your
precious bod. So, you can take a moment here to close your
eyes and look away from the video and just feel supported, feel your back, body supported,
the weight of your body supported. And I feel like that’s kind of sweet here, day nine of
the challenge, remembering that you’re supported by this community and by your practice. I
just felt the sun come out a little bit there. Okay, and then we’ll rest the hands on the
body, and we’ll just take a second to check in with the jaw, moving the tongue around
in the base of the mouth, stretching the jaw wide. It’s quite an embarrassing thing to
do on camera, but who cares. And then relax your jaw, relax your tongue
in the base of the mouth, and begin to rock the head a little side to side, ear to ear.
And here is where we will begin to deepen the breath, stretching the neck out, keeping
the shoulders relaxed. And then we’ll bring the head back to center,
and inhale. Reach the fingertips up and overhead, full body stretch. You might feel a sweet
sensation in the shoulders, a nice stretch in the front body, or the side body. You might
tilt the pelvis a couple of times here, just noticing the effects of your practice thus
far, and we continue to breathe deep and easy. And then we’ll float the palms down and hug
both knees up into the chest. So, you can do this one at a time, or if you
want to light that fire in the belly right away, you could anchor the navel down, scoop
the tailbone up, and pull both knees in at the same time. Then wrap your arms around
the shins and we do a little shimmy back and forth, and find what feels good here, particularly
in the lower back and the outer edges and the tops of the buttocks. Oh yeah, baby. Keep
the shoulders relaxed, and with each inhale invite some good juju in, good vibes. And
with each exhale choose to let go of any extra weight that you might be carrying that you
don’t need. Hug the right knee in towards the heart, send
the left leg high up towards the sky, deep breath in here and on an exhale we lower the
left knee down as you squeeze the right knee up towards your heart. Stretch it out here,
deep breath in. On an exhale, peel the nose up towards the knee, wind-relieving pose.
Relax your shoulders down, squeeze, squeeze, squeeze, as you push through that left heel,
top of the left thigh bone firms down. Careful not to clench here, keep it soft and easy.
Then we’ll gently release. And we’ll switch, the left knee comes in,
squeeze up towards your heart, right leg goes up, deep breath in here, stretch it out. Exhale,
find a little resistance, that opposition which is what our Hatha Yoga practice is all
about, finding strength and balance in between these two opposing forces. So, we hug the
left knee in, we press the right heel out, breathe here. Then when you’re ready, slowly peeling the
nose up towards the left knee, really feeling that sweet compression in the lower belly
here as you squeeze and push, relax the shoulders down. Eskimo kiss your knee if you can, if
not don’t worry, you can imagine. And then we release. Hug both knees in one more time, deep breath
in, long breath out. Cross the right ankle over the left, grab the outer edges of the
feet. Give yourself a little foot massage, a little wake-up call here to the feet. You
can bend the elbows left to right, really find the length in the lower back as you scoop
the tailbone up. And it’s time to rock and roll, here we go. Anchoring navel to spine,
we’ll begin to rock front to back, working out the kinks, and then rising all the way
up to a nice comfortable seated position where we’re going to take a couple of neck rolls
before we move into our twisting the night away. Drawing circles with the nose one way and
then the other, keeping the shoulders relaxed and the heart lifted. Then nice and easy,
bring the head back to center stillness, and we’ll bring the right palm to the left knee
just find a little lift here as you twist and shout, so cheesy as you twist and shout.
Why not? What do you want to shout from the rooftops? Let’s think about it while we inhale,
lift and length, and exhale. What do you want to shout off the canyon edge? Towanda! Back
to center we go, and to the other side. Half of the viewers were like, what? You can
Google it later. Oh, it feels good in my heart as I lift up through the chest, exhale, twist,
and find something you want to shout off the top of the mountain. Keep it positive. I love
my life! Back to center we go. We spread the palms
wide and we’re going to dive forward onto all fours right away here. Take in a couple
of breaths and cat-cow. Then curling the toes under, walking the palm out just a hair, and
we’ll send the sit bones up to our downward facing dog. A deep breath in, and long breath
out. Deep breath in and melt your heart back, paddle it out here, find what feels good. Then we’ll go for a slow walk up toward the
front edge of the mat. Find your forward fold today. Stretch it out, bend the knees as generously
as you need to, shake the head a little, yes and no. Then we’ll bring the palms to the
tops of the feet, and inhale, slide them up to the tops of the thighs. Find that flat-back
position here, take a deep breath in, inflate, and on an exhale, fold. Tuck your chin into your chest, my favorite
moment of the day. We press with the feet and we roll up nice and slow, connecting to
our breath today, lengthening the tailbone down and engaging as we draw energy up from
the earth. And right away we spread the fingertips and inhale, reach all the way up. Kiss the
fingertips together up and overhead today; just a little variation. We kiss the fingertips
together like this, and we open the heart and lengthen the tailbone down again. A deep breath in here, and on an exhale, float
it down, open the chest and shoulders. The palms come to the feet and we inhale and lift
up, flat back. Exhale, slide it down. Bend the knees generously and plant your palms,
step or hop it back to plank. We’re going to paddle the feet out here, just
stretching out the legs. Then we’re going to lower all the way down to the belly. Inhale,
lift up, cobra, nice and soft and sweet here. You might find a little movement. Pull the
elbows back and try to resist the urge to clinch the shoulders up towards the ears,
create space, and press in your foundation strong. A deep breath in, exhale, release, curl the
toes under. Press it up to plank, or all fours, and then send it back downward duck. We’ll drop the left heel, inhale, slide the
right leg up high. Exhale, bend the right knee. Send it over to kiss the left elbow.
Inhale, three-legged dog, exhale all the way up and into your lunge. A nice slow lunge
here. You might lower that back knee for a couple of breaths. Stretch it out. Lengthen
the tailbone down. So a little bit of play time here. And then when you’re ready we’ll come back
to the fingertips, lift the back knee up, and inhale, reach the fingertips all the way
up, high lunge. So we’re going to play today with this heel,
maybe pulsing up and down, staying nice and aligned in that front knee, so making sure
we don’t go over, keeping it nice and stacked. So play with this back heel, coming all the
way up in your high lunge, tucking the pelvis and then sending the heel back. If you’re
feeling like, whoa, I’m going to fall, then hug everything in the mid-line. And remember, that upward current of energy
engage full body experience. We have opposition here, grounding down through the shoulder
blades and the tail, lifting the heart. One more breath here, doing awesome. And then
on an exhale send that heel back for stability, and open the chest as you release back down,
belly comes to the top of the thigh. And then we find our Vinyasa. Move with your breath,
together we’ll meet in downward-facing dog. Drop the right heel this time, inhale and
slide the left leg up high. Then the left knee, we’re going to send it over to kiss
the right elbow, breathe. Inhale, three-legged dog, strong right heel, and then sending it
all the way up into our low lunge. Lower that back knee, take a second to just
find your action, your alignment, your breath, your balance. And stretch out any sore muscles.
So you know, committing to an everyday practice means committing to a listening and an integrity,
so we’re not just doing the same thing every day and blasting through, but finding balance,
listening to the body and places that are sore or tight, or needing a little extra TLC;
maybe something in the healing, right? So we stay positive. We bring the fingertips
to the mat and lift the back knee up. Maybe you keep it lower, too. That’s a great way
to practice this. And we come to our high lunge, reaching the fingertips up, pull that
left hip crease back. And play here with a little movement. So we come up onto the right
toes, resisting the urge to straighten that leg, like I just wanted to do. And see if
you can keep that front knee bent as you pulse here on that foot. It’s hard work here. Breathe
into the front of the right hip crease, relax your shoulders down, and dial your pinkies
forward. Find your breath, one more full breath in
and out here. And then we anchor that right heel back and we open the chest and shoulders
to release. The belly comes to the top of the thigh, step one. Step two, we release. Great. This time we’re going to plant the
palms, slide the left toes back to plank. And then we’re going to anchor navel to spine
and send it straight back, downward-facing dog. Deep breath in, long breath out. Bend
the knees, look forward, slide the nose forward, so careful not to crunch the back of the neck
on that move. And then we hop towards the front edge of the mat or walk. Inhale, lift to flat back position. Exhale,
soften and bow. Inhale, we take it all the way up. Tuck your chin into your chest, roll
up through the spine. The fingertips kiss together up and overhead and exhale. We dive
back in. I’m trying to get off this creaky floor. I’ve
done too much yoga in this one spot. Inhale and halfway lift, sorry about that, and exhale,
keeping it real. Plant the palms. Step or hop it back to plank, hang with me, you got
this. Chaturanga, or Chaturanga practice, shifting the weight forward, hug the elbows
into the side body. You can draw the navel up, slowly lower down. We’re all the way to
the belly or hover half way. Inhale to cobra, or up dog. Press into all 10 knuckles, strong.
Open your heart in your chest. Inhale in, and on an exhale, to dog, to dawg,
D-A-W-G. Drop the left heel and inhale. Slide the right leg high. Again we bend that right
knee, and we’re going to cross it over towards the left elbow. Shift your gaze forward here,
and then inhale, three-legged dog. Exhale into your lunge. Keep the back leg lifted, hug the inner thighs
together, inhale. We spread the fingertips left to right. And this time come up into
our high lunge, kissing the fingerprints up overhead. Beautiful, hold here, pull the thumbs
back, relax your shoulders down. Navel draws in just slightly and you can bend that back
knee just to make sure that pelvis is coming right underneath. Inhale and open your heart,
and exhale, we release. Opening the chest and shoulders, the belly comes to the top
of the thigh. Send your fingertips back this time, and then we release. Find your Vinyasa, you can always improvise
here, of course, as I’ve stated before. And also you can take a break. Take a load off.
We don’t know when you’ve got going on in your life. You might have already done something
today. You might just need a little extra love and care, you might be new to the practice,
your arms might be hella sore. A deep breath in, and on an exhale we all
meet in downward dog, giving a moment or two for us all to catch up here. And then when
you’re ready we’ll drop the right heel and inhale, lift the left leg high. You’re doing
great, my friends. Welcome that heat, that Tapas to the body. That is a great way to
transform from the inside out, creating a little warmth, a little heat. Here we go, bend that left knee, cross it
over towards the right ankle. Look forward, gaze is forward, long neck. Press away from
your palms, and exhale three-legged dog. Awesome. Sending that left leg all the way up into
your lunge, send the fingertips left to right to come all the way up. We kiss the palms
up and overhead. Lengthen the tailbone down. Soften that right knee to do that. That’s
a great trick here. A little alignment, and then find your action, drawing energy up,
hugging the inner thighs together, opening the chest and relax your shoulders down, deep
breath in, and exhale, open and break free. Belly comes to the tops of the thighs. We
find strength and length here. And then we exhale, release. Again, take your Vinyasa
or skip it. No problem. Together we’ll meet in downward facing dog. When you arrive, take
a deep breath in, the deepest breath you’ve taken all day. And let it out through the
mouth. Again, one more time, just like that. Oh, the sun’s coming out. Inhale in, and exhale
out through the mouth. Bend the knees generously, slowly slide the nose up, and we hop it forward
or walk. Inhale, find your flat-back position and exhale
bow. Inhale, soften through the knees, reach it all the way up, fingertips kiss up and
overhead, life is good. And exhale back down for more. Hang with me, guys, stick with it.
Inhale, halfway lift, and follow your breath. See if you can soften out all the hard edges
now. Keep it smooth. Forward full, plant the palms. Step or hop it back to plank. This time we’re going to get crazy. So we
can lower the knees here, no problem, or we can stay lifted. We’re going to do three Chaturanga
pushups. Say that five times fast. Three Chaturanga pushups. So you can do these on your knees,
draw your lower belly in and it’ll look like this. Gaze is forward, we go halfway down,
pull the elbows back and then press up. If you’re doing it on your toes it’ll look like
this, and we do one more, so we do three total. And then we send it up and back to downward
facing dog. Inhale in, and exhale and let it go out through the mouth. Drop the left
heel, inhale. Slide the right leg up high. Bending the right knee, kiss it over towards
the left elbow. The gaze is forward. Inhale, three-legged dog, and exhale, stepping up
into your lunge. Once again we send the fingertips left to right to come up fingerprints kiss
up overhead, life is good. Full body experience, and this time check
it out, going into a nice, juicy, strong detoxifying twist. I’m going to take my palms and bring
them over towards the right leg. So keep this length here that you’ve built and this strength
in the back heel as you come into this posture. So we’re really truly supporting it from the
ground up, not just kind of cranking in to make the shape. So keep this strong legs,
keep this beautiful length as we come into our twist. Bring the left hand to a fist.
The right palm comes up and overhead and we find length through the side body. We lean
back into it, and we open up through the heart. Back knee can always be lowered here. Breathe
into your belly. Get the most out of your practice by infusing breath into each posture.
So we’re going to hang out here, one more breath, we got it. If you want you can open
up here. If you’re growing your practice and you are ready for this you can open up your
wings, draw your shoulder blades away. And then we slowly release back down. The left knee comes to the mat and we pull
it back for half splits. I can’t wait to do our Hanumanasana foundations. Anyway, forward,
fold, relaxing the weight of the head over, pull the right hip crease back. Now we roll
through the right foot. We plant the palms. We hit our mike and then we Vinyasa. Feel
free to take a rest here. We can always lower the knees, downward facing
dog. Deep breath in, deep breath out. Drop your right heel, inhale. Slide the left leg
up high. Life is good. Bend that left knee and send it up and over to kiss. So try not
to dip it down with the hips. Keep it up and lifted, engaged. Those intercostal muscles
really strong as we kiss the left knee to right elbow. Gaze is forward. Press away from
the earth, and then three-legged dog. Here we go. Deep breath in, exhale, up into your
lunge. Send the fingertips back this time to come up, opening up through the chest and
shoulder a little more. The fingertips kiss up and overhead. And we keep the strength
and length of this beautiful posture that we’ve grown as we send it sideways into our
twist. Outer edge of the right arm comes to the outer
edge of this left knee. We can always lower this back knee and then try to lift it later,
no problem. Come into a strong arm here, right fist, and then the left palm comes over it
as we find our twist. Pull the left hip crease back. Breathe into the lower belly. Try not
to just collapse into the bones here, but keep that integrity, that energy. Breathe,
breathe, breathe. One more breath here, you might open up. Sorry,
my yoga is paining me, little bit dictated by my migraine now. Open up your heart, and
on an exhale release. Right knee comes to the earth. We send the hips up and back. Flex
through your left foot and find a little forward fold here in the upper body. Just a little counter pose. Pull the left
hip crease back. Breathe, breathe, breathe. And then we roll through the left foot. Come
to the fingertips, lift you back knee up. This time we’re going to bring the back foot
up to meet the front forward fold. Inhale, halfway lift, and exhale, bow. Bring the feet
together, bend the knees generously. Slight spacing between the heels here as we bring
the belly to the thighs. Send your sit bones back, inhale. Reach the arms forward up and
back. Only one Uthkatasana twist here. We got it. We can do it. We can totally do this. So we send the sit bones back and we bring
the fingertips together here. Inhale, open your chest by pulling the thumbs back, and
exhale. Send it over into your twist. You can repeat this kind of ninja move, I like
it, bringing the left hand to a fist and finding that sweet Hatha Yoga resistance here. Pull
your left hip crease back here. So that left knee is going to want to come forward. See
if you can bring the knees together. So what’s going on in the knees is definitely what’s
going on in the hips. So take care, work to just bring awareness to the hips. Inhale,
and here you can open up and exhale back to center. Give the legs a rest by inhaling,
coming to flat back. We’re almost done here, guys. Exhale fully. Taking it to the other side we inhale, Uthkatasana.
Bring the fingertips together, kiss. Inhale. Pull the thumbs back and exhale. Find your
twist, this time pulling the right hip crease back. Maybe you drop the sit bones a little
lower, maybe open up the fingertips wide, then we release. Inhale. Halfway lift, exhale.
Hallelujah bow. Step or hop it back to plank. Final thing before we cool off, we’re going
to walk the toes as wide as the mat, three wide on to pushups. That’s crazy. Bending
the elbows left to right, here we go, all the way to the ground, just three. One, two,
smile, draw your navel up. Adriene is crazy! And three, or maybe you’re like, I’ve got
this. And then we send it to downward facing dog. Awesome, lower the knees. Swing the legs
to the side, and come into a nice comfortable seat, cross-legged position, once again. Wipe the sweat off your brow. Try to let go
of any clinching, notice your breath. Notice any judginess in your body or in the moment.
Try to just let go of that judgmental vibe in. Be happy where you are, here today, Day
9. Feeling fine. Stay here in the meditation pose for a couple of minutes or you transition
onto your back. It surely is a honor to practice with you, especially in your time of need.

  1. I can't remember the last time I was this flexible! I've never been an athletic person and have struggled with overweight since I was a kid, I started this challenge to actually do something interesting in my life and not just live a sedentary life (lol). I never really liked exercising, but this is something I actually enjoy, even though it's tough sometimes and I'm still weak, I do enjoy the challenge and I am happy to see the results of my flexibility!

  2. I have made it to day 9. I am working on not judging myself through poses but I got to say your positivity is infectious and I appreciate your validation as I go along. I set aside the judgement best I can and try to enjoy this goal I have set for myself. You are a great teacher. Thank you so much.

  3. I did this challenge from February to March of 2016, and wow, it transformed my mind and bonus- I lost a few pounds!
    Since then, I practice yoga with Adriene's videos as often as I can, and it really helps me improve in the respective aspect I am trying to improve with that practice.
    I haven't been daily consistent for a few weeks now, but I've been following the April 2019 ACT playlist. Before I could click on the day 9 video, I saw this video for the 30day challenge
    So I did this one instead.
    And no regrets.
    It was like a workout, but I needed this detox, both physically and (especially) mentally.

    I'm just so grateful for being physically able to do yoga, and to be able to follow along with such an amazing teacher and so many yogis in training all around the world.

    May we find peace and acquire improved wellbeing.

  4. Heels touched mat on downward facing dog… MY HEALS TOUCHED THE MAT ON DOWNWARD FACING DOG!
    I'm so surprised and excited!! My left heel still need a tiny more practice to really get there but my right heel was kissing the sweet mat OMG ✨💖

  5. Buckets o' sweat. That was some work out! Marty practiced the lazy 😼 pose, executing it perfectly while laying underneath me…

  6. im sweaaaatiiiiing! but this was my favorite practice, + the 6pack one! And now my heals touch the mat on downward facing dog, i was shooook! Thank you Adriene you're the best <3

  7. Hey Adrienne, seriously I can't thank you enough for your dedication to this channel! You've clearly helped so many people with your videos and myself is included in those, I've got Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (a connective tissue disorder) and it causes me an immense amount of pain in my joints as well as having tight and inflexible tendons and ligaments – NO MORE! I'm here on day 9 and things are getting so much easier to handle. You're a shining star in the nights sky <3

  8. I actually can’t believe I’ve made this far! I haven’t completely kept the order because length and time but that means I’ve done quite a few of them more than twice. It’s felt like a big change in my life because it’s given me a really effective tool to feel better. Even when I had to N all nighter, taking that time to do 20 minutes gave me focus and energy.

  9. Stopped halfway through and was going to give up… just not feeling it today don’t want to push myself. Came down and read the comments and I finished the video. Thank you all for pushing me!!!!

  10. Adriene. You made me love yoga. Before doing your videos I was unable to sit still and go through them. Now, I look forward to them! And you are the cutest ever! Thank you for sharing them with us 😘😘😘

  11. #1- fried green tomatoes…um yes 👍🏽👍🏽
    #2- so many bones cracking today, it’s like I’m my own chiropractor now 😂😂
    Day 9 💪🏽✔️ #consistency

  12. I am doing these 30 days of yoga for the first time and WOW today was hard!!! I found it frustrating that I couldn't be balanced. Im excited to see how far I go with this practice. I feel amazing after today. I love this!!

  13. It was an honor to practice with you as well!! Best part of my day is 4 in the morning with you day 9 done, was a great one, good sweat and balance is getting alot better! Thankyou again for everything that you do!!! Namaste

  14. today's practice made me sweat😂but I made it!
    Should have done this yesterday but I was busy😕

  15. I love you but you should talk more about the pose and not about something completely irrelevant..It is very distracting.. It would be more helpful if you talk about how to achieve the correct posture or what we are not supposed to do.. Like in this video you showed us push ups.. but you did not tell us details about the posture where the hands should be and tips to achieve it correct.. Have a good day!!!

  16. Happy and inspired, I have never thought that Yoga would be my sport, thank you, beautiful girl!

  17. I am regular in yoga and love to do it regularly today was the 9th day . As I am eager to meet you and learn new things daily. Thanks a lot for your efforts

  18. Today was so emotional! I was able to keep up (albeit sweating profusely) but I feel myself getting stronger! You are awesome!

  19. WOOHOO yeah baby, day 9 and I'm feeling better than fine 🤪🤪🤪 I'm feeling amazing. I keep enjoying the practice of yoga more and more as it continues. This particular practice today got a nice sweat worked up for me and it was a perfect way to start my day. I hope that everyone is having a great Sunday and enjoys the rest of their weekend!!! Thanks as always Adriene you're the best!!!

  20. What if you missed a day? I was meant to do day ten today. I did do a few yoga stretches from memory instead just in case but it wasn’t that great.

  21. I can touch my toes (and the floor) for the first time ever today! As someone who never passed the flexibility test in school this is a big deal lol I'm so happy I keep touching them to make sure I'm not lying to myself haha

  22. is it bad that i didnt sweat? i feel like the whole point was to detox and maybe i didnt get the most out of the practice or do the poses right 🙁

  23. Pff I was struggeling with this one! Had my first sweat! Plus my body feels a bit sore, expecially my back. Is that normal at this stage in the challenge, or am I doing something wrong?

  24. Try listening to lofi hiphop beats in the background while doing yoga with Adriene! It really enhances the experience!

  25. This was a nice practice to come back to. I had to take a two day break after a chiropractor adjustment. I learned I have an extra vertebrae, and two growth points that haven't developed; probably won't either. Also, he said my left leg is shorter than my right. I had an accident little over a year ago which had my left leg split open, and it healed fine. The problem was when I went to go help outside, after it healed, my back started hurting all along the hip line. I've been going to the chiropractor for over a year just for this problem. I started doing these Yoga videos in late Feb of this year. This is my fifth 30 day journey, and I find these fun to do. I'm glad I started doing them. I know I've lost weight, and toned up a lot since I first started. I really don't think the problem happened from the fall, but it was from an accident I had when I was younger. I was skateboarding, and went down this little sidewalk hill. I fell, and cracked my tailbone area. It was tremendous pain, and I had to walk, at least six months, in pain from class to class. I don't think it healed properly, so I believe that is one of the many factors that contributes to this back/hip pain. It was sure nice to get back on to doing these videos again. It was like starting up a car, and saying come on girl don't fail me now. xD

  26. Today with the right mindset I entered this practice with determination that nothing in life is to hard for me if I really want it. Ty😊

  27. Day 9 and I’m feeling fine, I got on the mat twice today, to make up for lost time. (Lol) Gosh, that was tough! Thanks for pushing us through the tough parts of the practice 🙂

  28. Day 9 done! Oh my, I'm sweating so much. I skipped yesterday because I'm feeling gloomy and all but today's practice was a great kickstart. I'm feeling more flexible. The back of my hamstrings doesn't hurt as much whenever I stretch it. As always, thanks Adriene!

  29. Today was a little hard and I'm sweating like a pig, but it is the first time in my life I do sport 9 days in a row, so I'm really happy for having acomplished that. See you tomorrow on Day 10! <3

  30. 4.5 years behind the times but each session I finish I find myself thinking, “I love you Adriene” haha. Thanks for bringing a bit of peace and movement into this working mother of two young kids life ✌🏼

  31. Found this one SO hard. Feeling super tired as I slept terribly last night and also feeling a bit queasy so this was a struggle. But I found myself not really getting frustrated when I had to pause the video today. Instead of beating myself up my inner critic was basically silenced by a much more soothing inner voice that said it's okay, I'm not feeling well, I'll get there eventually. I took a few child's pose recesses and totally didn't do the push ups in the end, but that's okay.

    I look back on the first day and how I did that two days in a row because I found it so hard the first time, and how easy that day is to me now, and I know in a week or so some of these moves will be easier! But for now I'll shake it off, go do a little bit more gentle exercise, and get back on it tomorrow 🙂

  32. Awesome flow, I suffer from IBS and yoga always helps to keep my mind calm while dealing with the frustrations of the disease. If there is a sequence of flows that I could continually do to help treat IBS that would be amazing. If anyone has ideas please let me know!!

  33. Hello Adriene , I have a question : Can I start these 30 sessions on my own with a less experience on yoga class and lack of flexibility of my body ??! would you plz give me advice cuz I want to start my yoga without classes <3

  34. that was hard on the legs. but great.

    and I didn't think I'd notice an actual change in my muscles, but I managed to do the 3 push ups. not as low as Adriene, but so much lower than before I started my yoga journey.
    I feel better with my body

  35. Finally got onto the mat at 7pm, I was yawning near the end of this session, it made me sweat but relaxed me also. And im chuffed with meself ive done day 9! Time a for nice bath now 🙂 ty adriene u beautiful spirit, namaste everyone x

  36. Thanks for kicking my butt. Today's practice positively impacted my physical and mental well being today. Adriene, you are truly a magnificent human being. Thank you for being a ray of sunshine in my daily routine.

  37. oh gosh today was hard, i sweated a bucket. also i really couldnt keep my balance today lmao but i still pushed through till the end

  38. Day 9 Incomplete 💔
    Stopped at around 22:00. Demotivated today by illness.
    I hope I can resume tomorrow if I'm feeling better.
    Namaste… 🙏

  39. Adriene, whenever you say "Be happy.", I can't help smiling! Also, I sometimes talk to you as if you are with me. 🤣 You're the best.💕

  40. Just finished my day 9 practice as a man just broke the record time to run a marathon in under 2 hrs! Just made me think that though I'm totally unfit it is possible to be great at yoga some day! 😂 Only if I keep at it, practice beyond pain, and believe it is possible 💪

  41. I had uterine surgery 5 days ago and needed a reset for my system. It has been cloudy and rainy the last 2 days and in complete synchronization, the sun came out in real time at the same time as the sun came out in this video. Magic, and a sign that I am aligned.

  42. this might seem dramatic but when the practice ended and you told us to smile i smiled and started crying out of joy
    thank you adrienne

  43. Hey YWA Family,

    Still here still trying And here are a few things I have learned: the incredible flexibility of Adriene (way to go!), but also how necessary it is for me to do yoga to reconnect my mind, heart, and body.
    It is one of those things I drag my feet on to get onto the mat, but it is also one of the more rewarding things I know.

    I will be sure to be back for DAY 10!!

    – Namaste 🙂

  44. That was hard. Still need more strength and balance for these. I had some inflammation and soreness at the bottom of my back from overdoing it yesterday. I didn’t think I’d be able to make it through a whole session today but the practice helped. I feel better.

  45. I love when you try a new yoga video and it turns out to be just what you needed. Thankyou universe (and Adriene!<3)

  46. Day 9 ✔️ I dedicate today's practice to Samuel L. Jackson because of the number of times I said his favorite word throughout. I also caught myself saying things to myself like "you suck" or "bro wtf" while stumbling over or just panting during the transitions…which is crazy considering I would never talk to anyone else like this who is trying their best. There's so many voices in our head that aren't ours, and a difficult practice really brings out our deepest to the surface. I have a lot more to improve on myself. Thank you again teacher and friends!!

  47. Guys read comments after you're finished with session. I get a little bit scared that i wont be able to finish today's session cuz it's tense. I started this at very low point of my life and at the end of this one i felt so good and found myself smiling from ear to ear. Thanks Adriene 😄

  48. Yo girl! It is indeed an honour to do this practice with You. Thank you for sharing your time with me.
    Namaste. ❤️

  49. Day 9 done! Thanks Adriene. Feeling good – these sessions are really pushing me but already feeling stronger, focused and more positive. Looking forward to day 10 !

  50. Thank you so much Adriene, thx to you my anxiety is so much lower, and I always do yoga outside with my dog! The thing is that I used to never go outside, I was and still am a couch potato, but thx to you I have movitation to do yoga outside and feel the fresh air(it’s summer over here btw) while my dog is sleeping beside me! And also, I used to have 2 dogs but one sadly passed away, I felt so guilty for not spending enough time with him, and now that I have one dog left, I feel like yoga has made me much more connected to her since I just started doing yoga recently. Thank you so much Adriene for making my life better! ☺️

  51. Hi Adrienne! Just finished day 9 and boy am I sweating! I am going through the 30 days of yoga. This is my first time doing yoga, and I can't believe how great it is! Thank you so much for creating this series. Namaste!
