Yoga To Get The Juices Flowing – Morning Yoga – Yoga With Adriene


Hey everyone. Welcome to Yoga With Adriene.
I’m Adriene. Today we have a quick little ditty to get the juices flowing. So this is
a great thing to do first thing in the morning. This is also an awesome thing to do if you
are at work and you need a quick little break. Or you’re a student and you want to take a
little study break or break from studying to get the juices flowing. This is also great
if you’re just needing a little creativity in your life. Or you’re feeling a little anxious.
So let’s hop on the mat and get the juices flowing. So let’s begin today standing up, nice and
tall, feet hip width apart or flush together, you decide. But just mindful footing here.
Stand up nice and tall. Let’s get a big stretch here, reaching up towards the sky, toes pointing
forward. Take a big breath in and exhale. Release it down. Interlace the fingertips
behind the tail. Open your chest and again lift and lengthen
up. Stretch up through the crown of the head, knuckles down towards the earth and then release.
Awesome. Now give yourself a big hug. Inhale, lift your heart. Lift your elbows. Exhale.
Release. Now opposite arm on top this time. Give yourself a big hug. Inhale. Lift your
heart. Elbows up and then release. Awesome. Left hand. Excuse me, allergies. Left hand to the waistline. Right hand is
gonna go up and over nice and easy, side body stretch. Inhale in. Exhale. Release. And do
the other side. Deep breathe in as you stretch. Inhale in. And exhale. Release. Awesome. Woosh
the arms forward, up and back. Big breath in. And exhale all the way down to a forward
fold. Uttanasana. Toes are still pointing forward here. You might grab the elbows, rock
a little side to side. Inhale. Lift up to your flat back. And then exhale. Release.
Tuck the chin to the chest. Bend the knees generously, my friends, and slowly roll it
up, connecting with your breath. Making the most of your time here on the mat. And then
we’ll roll it up to Mountain and loop the shoulders forward up and back. Check in with
the neck. Check in with the pelvis. Lower back supported here. Big breath in. And big breath out. Awesome.
We’re gonna step the right foot forward and the left foot back. Coming into a Warrior
Two here, sinking into it with a mindfulness so if it’s early early morning, and you haven’t
had your coffee yet or you haven’t had your juice yet, take it easy. Take it nice and
slow. When you’re ready, slowly bend that front knee. Begin to scoop the tailbone under. Lift your heart. Find Warrior Two, nice and
strong. I can hear Benji in the background. Maybe you have your kids in the other room.
Maybe there are other distractions and you’re just breathing deep knowing that when you
take this time for yourself, you’re able to open yourself up to the ones you love, help
others. One more breath here, you got it. Then reach the right fingertips forward, up,
and back. Peaceful Warrior. Inhale. Open your heart. Sink deep into that front knee. Exhale.
Straighten the front leg. Slowly, we’re gonna tip the right fingertips forward. Left tip
goes back as we come into Trikonasana Triangle pose. Opening up through the chest. Left fingertips
up towards the sky. Breath deep here. Triangle strong grounding legs. Inhale in, remember
your neck. Right rib cage scoops up to get a little sunshine here. Deep breath in. And then exhale. We’ll slowly
bend that right knee, pivot everything down to a nice low lunge. Deep breath in. Long
breath out. Awesome. Step that back foot up to meet the front. Forward fold. Inhale. Lift
up half way. And exhale, down you go. Repeating the roll up from before. Stacking the spine.
And we’ll roll it up to standing. Awesome. Now same thing on the other side.
We’re gonna step the left foot front. Right foot back coming to your Warrior Two. If you’re
new to the practice, there’s a foundations of Yoga video for Warrior Two you can check
out. We breath deep in here. Sink down low. Take your time getting into it. Cultivating
a worthy experience for yourself. So for me that means, really just breathing deep and
noticing this body where it’s at today or this morning, whenever you’re practicing.
Notice where you’re at today. Holding space for yourself here. Tuck the tailbone and lift
your heart. And then Peaceful Warrior where we reach the left fingertips forward, up and
back. The tendency here is to strain through that front leg which might feel good. And
you can do that. But otherwise, maybe we stay nice and bent in the front knee. Inhale in. Exhale. Trikonasana. Straighten
through the front leg. Tipping the right hip point back. We come to Teeter Totter in our
Triangle here. That back thigh is spiraling in and out towards the back of the mat. If
you want more of a core woonrkout here, you can resist the urge to collapse onto your
shin or the earth and hold strong. Big breaths here. You got it. Extension through the neck.
One more big breath in and out. Awesome. Then soften through that left knee.
Pivot on the back foot. And come to your low lunge. Inhale in. Exhale. This time plant
the palm, step the left toes back. Downward Facing Dog. You gotta have one juicy Downward
Facing Dog in here. Stretching out the back body and melting the heart. Work it out here.
And then eventually come to a place of stillness. Then when you feel satisfied, we’ll walk the
palms, the hands back up towards the toes. Once again, inhale. Lift to that flat back,
my friends. Exhale fold. And we roll it up. Rolling all the way up to standing. Taking
your time. Pressing into the feet. Inhale. Reach the
arms up and over your head. Take your days all the way up. Fill with energy, with love,
with gratitude. And then you can use your exhale. You can move in your own time to bring
the palms back to the heart. Whenever you’re ready. Cool. If you’re practicing this in
the morning, maybe you’re like, crack your knuckles. Ready to go. Take care of business.
If you have a little more time. You might use this time here to practice the balancing
pose. Or maybe you want to do some jumping jacks or some bunny hops. Or if you want to
work on your core, maybe you do some side plank. Again, if you’re really busy and that’s
all the time you have for today, take a second here, just a quiet moment to bow your head
to your hands or your head to your heart. And I will pass the torch onto you. Take it
away from here. Have an awesome day, rest of the day. Wherever
you are. Free Yoga videos every Wednesday. Take good care, everyone. I’m gonna practice
some more myself.

I've been having a few body issues recently and with each day I get on the mat I feel that resolution that my body is fine, just gotta work on the old mind games. Today I longed for my mat, which I think is a huge turning point in my practice β™₯

  11. Two days in and the word "creativity" is already making me smile. I spent the day in lazy mode, so an under-ten-minutes practice was just perfect to get me on the mat today. Thanks Adriene!

  18. For Day 16 of MAGIC I used this little diddy to wake me up and follow with my much missed Six Pack Abs from 30 Days of Yoga. Perfect combination ! That does it for me, keeping strong after all that meditation Adriene. See you tomorrow on the mat πŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ§˜πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ™πŸ’ž

  19. Always have a slight panic before a short practice as I imagine it's going to be super concentrated and hard going! This is not!!! It's a great start to the day! Thank you Adriene xx

  20. You read my mind – this is exactly what I was hoping/looking for. Thank you for being you and posting great content! You are my go-to online yoga partner!

  21. Thank you Adriene. Just wanna let you know that I come back to get my morning juices flow again! Love from Vancouver. Namaste. πŸ™‚

  22. Hey Adriene,

    I'm gonna do this one too, switching from the "yoga for focus" in my morning routine. Then I'll go back and forth with these two. Thank you again.

  23. This morning I bowed my head and said "thank you for Adriene and her following and sharing her practice with the world!" I appreciate your videos so much! Have a great day! Rose

  24. great start to my morning yoga routine. thanks for the inspiration to keep stretching and focusing on self-improvement! thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  25. Skipping Dedicate this morning for this instead since we have an early morning call time for a video shoot! I am awake! Thank you, Adriene!

  26. I just want to say that you, Adriene, helped me quit smoking some year and a half ago. Instead of a cigarette I'd do one of your yoga videos and I started to do it even three times a day! You taught me patience and of being mindful and inside my own body. I cannot emphasis enough how much it means to me. Today, I am back here, doing the morning yoga because I found myself restless and stressed again. I am still doing yoga every third day (one of your longer sequences), but am starting to see that I should do a small one at least once a day only to remind myself of being present and patient. Patience is the key to every progress. Thank you so much! I wish you all the happiness! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

  27. Thanks Adriene! I love your positivity and kindness. I feel you are my friend although I never met you. 😘😘😘.

  28. Adriene, just to say, you have added so much value to my life with your videos. I recommend you every opportunity I get. Thankyou!

  29. Fixed my persistent upper back pain that I've had for years. Doctors kept throwing me Ibuprofen. Your video has drastically improved the quality of my life. Thank you

  30. I am on an assignment in Afghanistan and start my mornings with one or two of videos, they help me start the day filled with energy, recharge my "batteries" and lifts my mood in the harsh environment I am in. I am so grateful for the videos and all the good vibes you send. Thank you sooo much!

  31. Thank you Adriene! You’re the best thing that ever happened to social media🌟 (also this is my first YT comment;)

  32. I can't explain how much your vidoes has helped me go through everything.
    I just want to thank you for everything..
    you deserve all the love and success in the world <3 <3 <3

  33. Hey, just wanted to say a belated thank you for all of the work you put in to these. It's incredible that they're available as a free resource. I've been using your videos for over a year, although the regularity ebbs and flows! I always feel 100% better on days that I make time for a session. This is the video I send to people when I recommend your channel.

  34. Day 23. I needed a quick practise and this helped as I was sitting around muddling through my anxious thoughts. Doesn't feel as stuck as I did before. This helped for sure.

  35. I’ve fallen into a lazy slump where my alarm is set to wake up early to do some YWA, and I just can’t seem to get out of bed.
    I FEEL the negative side affects of not practicing 😭
    Today with the long day ahead of me, and this little ditty πŸ₯° I toed back into it, and I hope tomorrow I’ll do what I need to do πŸ˜‚
    Thank you Adrianne on behalf of my body and mental progressions β™₯️β™₯️

  36. Adrienne,thank you beautiful spirit for these videos and this practice. I have been able to share Yoga with others through you. I have issues with my foot and on some of the worst days you have helped me to keep going in my practice. I also love how you don’t rush or challenge us to do more than we should. True Yogi! Thank again and many blessings.
