How to Start Doing Yoga at Home
As part of their brand, they have a YouTube channel where they offer classes by well-known yoga instructors, like Rodney Yee and Colleen Raidman. Most of the videos are of just teachers, though some of them have students in them, too. They also have short videos, which make them perfect for traveling. We are finding yoga to be very helpful for in-between weight training and they step by step explanations is perfect for my husband. We are subscribing you on youtube so we can use our tablet to watch you in front of us instead of up top where our tv is.
Thank you for the work you are doing. We love your humbling tone, sense of humor, and being able to make this so simple to understand for us that are learning yoga vocabulary. God bless you, your family, and your practice! I just wanted to thank you so much for these videos. But this is fantastic. Thank you so much, I really needed this.
Thank you so much for this. Exactly what I needed. Looking forward to the challenge and where it takes me. Revisiting yoga after many years great for dusting off the cobwebs and seeing how rusty I am!! Perfect x. Hi Adriene, thanks for sharing such a nice video. Keep it up..!! Professional, lovely practice that gets to the fundamentals: challenging without being too hard, basic without being boring. Terrific lesson and great positive energy from the teacher. Thank you for your generosity in making this freely available online. I would love to purchase the downloadable version but live in the UK.
Does anyone know whether it is possible to purchase outside of the USA. I only lasted until I had to stay on one knee for ten seconds.
I guess I need to work on my balance. Awesome video. Hi, Adriene, I explored Yoga a couple three times over the years but I found myself feeling inadequate and frustrated instead of feeling good.
I was always a few steps behind during class it seemed. Every day! Sometimes more than once a day beginners in the morning, bedtime at night for instance. I wondered if any part of it would be enjoyable beyond knowing I was doing something good for myself. I CAN do this! It DOES feel good! And I no longer hate downward dog!! Thank you, Adriene! I found your video on youtube and i tried it for a few days now, and i love it. Everyone has seen a big change in me. Where ever you are, i love you. I featured another one of your epic beginner videos on a blog post I did on starting a beginners yoga practice.
Also wanted to say how much I love your classes — you always make things fun! Your recent yoga camp with affirmations is currently my go-to for zen boosting, but the beginner classes helped me hugely over the last year as my practice deepened. You inspire me so well that I decided and made my guest room as my yoga room!!
I have become addicted and will be moving back to ATX in a week so the relaxation is priceless. You excel in being able to simplify the abstract quite eloquently. It is greatly appreciated. I turned to yoga as a solution, figuring that it would be something I could do at home, and work it into my schedule wherever there was time. Your videos for beginners have been positively wonderful.
You are a great instructor, you encourage people to take it at their own pace and not to stress over mastering yoga right away, which is just fantastic. This video has been my favourite for diving into the yoga world, and I look forward to trying the more advanced routines in your other videos as I improve.
Thank you so much! I took my first class at a studio yesterday. I was good. You are an amazing teacher and I look forward to using your videos in concert with a studio practice. Thank you again very, very much and I hope your life is unicorns and rainbows, or whatever that means. So I am new to yoga, and enjoy it already!
I am shipping out to basic training and thought this would be great to try for stretching and relaxing. I enjoy lifting, working out, running, and felt like trying yoga. I found this video and I really enjoyed it. Yoga really does make a difference even with a young body it made a world of difference.
Honestly I have been doing a half hour to an hour of yoga before I run and that truly makes a major difference as well. Wow, this was challenging for me but awesome! I actually fell asleep on the mat at the end, I was so worn out yet totally relaxed.
Thank you for your wonderful videos! Very much enjoyed this yoga session. Popped it on once I got my little boy to bed. Fantastic way to unwind. Perfect feeling before bed time. Happy mummy. Thank you Thank you Thank you Adrienne. You are the coolest Yoga Teacher! I can finally learn from you and your warm voice and fun humor, at home, at my own pace. Hi Adrienne. Just want to say: Thank you! Been struggling with anxiety ugh and went back to my local gym for yoga. THAT was not relaxing. So I went on line and found you. In one week I feel more relaxed, empowered and strong.
I know it takes much more time than that but just breathing and feeling in touch has helped enormoursly. Right cure at the right time. Without getting into specifics, your routines have already made a positive impact. I thank you. Thank you for your videos. They are so informative not only how to do the poses but the method behind them. I enjoy your videos more than going to a gym class that I have attended. Your warm, gentle approach was exactly what I needed!
Do you have any suggestions for how to modify poses when pushing down on the backs of the feet creates a radiating pain in the arches? This has always been a struggle for me. Thanks again! Nothing better on a wet English November than to set my mat down in front of the fire and spend 40 minutes with you, Adriene. Thank you so much for bringing yoga in to the life of this 60 year old lady, I am loving all your workouts. And bless you for giving so generously of your time and talent.
Yoga at home teaches you to pay attention to your own body, to realize what it needs on any given day and how to practice in a way that supports you both physically and mentally. I am new to yoga, and enjoy it already! However, I have only been able to do the first ten minutes of the beginners video before it became too much for me. I was wondering if that was a good idea, or if you could recommend another video for me to do that would be better?
That did not feel like 40 minutes. Usually I stop and check the time on videos like these to see how long is left of it. My mom and I did this video looking for a beginner video. Adriene has a great presence and is obviously very knowledgeable. However this did not feel like a beginner yoga sequence. Neither of us have had any knee problems so this is alarming. I have dipped in and out of yoga. Today I just wanted a good stretch and nothing too advanced. This was perfect.
I shall definitely try her other workouts. Will recommend this to my running friends. In December this year I was fit energetic ate and drank everything that is recommended to be healthy for you. I had slight pains across my chest and working out appeared to slow down through lack of energy. I blamed it on my 58 years of being on this planet.
I went for a health check at my surgery at the end of November. All tests weres okay. The nurse advised me to go for further tests.

I felt after I was in bed motionless back. I began to think that life was over. I heard might deal with yoga, because there are many exercises that helps the lower back. I was very sceptical because I gained the weight during motionless. I decided to try yoga for beginners, those real beginners, who never been touching the meaning of yoga.

Your course inspires peace and confidence that everything will be fine and I will be able to conquer this science.
