A lot of talking. Good sequence
You're the best
I'm new to yoga. However I must say I really like participating in your sessions. You are an amazing yoga instructor and I simply wanted to thank you. Have a blessed day ❤
Chutiyapa bakwaas idiotic
great video. the comments about your floor freaked me out tho! I did not expect this. 😦 I did not hear the floor but felt the stress in your voice about it and as an empath, I got all stressed out. I'm sure you did not intend this.
I'm so grateful to have access to this incredible body of work by Adrienne. Even when things are really hard, I can start the day with a YWA video and it gives me this space where I can be that strong peaceful warrior even for half an hour, and then try to carry that into the rest of the day knowing that I'll be back on the mat tomorrow. Namaste ❤
Thank you so much….i did this yoga today…and i felt so so good after so long….the magic exilir one….that really was magic……i feel so light, fresh , stress free and so full of good energy…thank you

I’m here because I get morning anxiety a lot ever since I moved back to my moms house. Sometimes I even dread walking to the kitchen or getting out of bed. I put my yoga mat in front of the tv and even if I don’t have energy or I’m too anxious to do the yoga routine, just listening calms my nerves down so much. We appreciate you Adriene 🏼
I suffer for embarrassment memory Abad memoryy😢😢😢
Thanks for explaining HOW to get to another screen for the tutorial and just pausing here so we can come back! Helpful to have tech support!
I love it that you remind to be kind to yourself, and only to move as far as the body lets, and that it is ok. What a beautiful practice. I am practicing with 0.75 speed and some meditational music in the background. It bring a lot of peace to body and mind ❤
Love the use of rooting into the earth and strengthening the legs combined with a soft floating and opening on top! This is a great physical representation of trusting yourself and going easier on yourself at the same time. Damn beautiful 🤩
Had me crying through the breath work. Such a wonderful and positive way to show yoga and working through the body. I feel okay now:)
Thank you so much for this i feel so much better ❤
I do this every night now before i go to bed. It helps tremendously, thank you so much. I’ve never slept so well in my entire life because i’m always anxious at night.
Plz pray for me for removing anxiety
Hi u r beautiful
Anyone felt annoyed by constant over explanation in this video? I couldn't continue doing yoga and had to search other video
There's not a day I feel out of stress and anxiety
"What is the tiny dong have to do with anything Velma?"
Literally, you could ask the same thing for every plot points in this show
Did you ever cut both ends out of about 6-7 soda cans (except one, and the end you leave make a nail hole), duct tape them together and make a cannon? Squirt lighter fluid down the hole, sling it back & forth to spread the lighter fluid the length of the "cannon", then put the cannon under your arm with the opening facing away from you and the nail hole next to your chest, hold a cigarette lighter to the nail hole, it heats up the lighter fluid and 30 seconds or so later ""THOOMP!" and at night there'd be a flame! This was mid to late 1970s. Good times!
Is this posture recommended for pregnant women also ?
Love your video❤️
Do you have yoga videos with music , without talking? Thank you
