Revolution – Day 21 – Practice Strength


– What’s up everyone and welcome to your 31 Day Yoga Revolution. Today is day 21 and I am ready to pump, you up. Today we practice strength. Let’s get started. (lively orchestral music) Alright my friends,
let’s begin in a nice, comfortable seat of your choice. We’re just gonna
take a hot second here to tune into the
breath and to settle in. So, any way
you’d like to sit here, just come to a place
where you can sit up tall, upright in the spine. Day 21, we’re legal now,
in the US anyway. Strength. So we think of a
strong yoga practice, we think, ah physical muscles
and we are going to have a nice, well
rounded practice today, but I’d like to begin by
asking you to close your eyes or soften your gaze
and think of one thing that you love about yourself. Just honestly, don’t hold back. No holding back,
just think of one thing that you’re like,
I’m pretty awesome at this, or I love this about myself. Anything at all, no rules. Okay, taking a
moment to think of one thing that you just
love about yourself. And when you feel like
you have something, anything, anything at all, it could be simply that you love that you’re showin’
up for yourself here in this 31 day journey. You can get really specific. It can be anything really. If it feels like it’s
superficial even, no, it’s perfect, just whatever you
landed on, embrace it. One thing you
love about yourself, and then let’s
take a deep breath in. Big, full, full,
full, full, full breath. And a long breath out. And just hold on to that one
thing you love about yourself as you breathe in,
notice how it makes you feel. And breathe out. Way to show up
for yourself today. Let’s get crackin’. We’re gonna bring
the palms together. If you’re feeling
adventurous and fiery, clap the palms together. Jai namaste. And we’re gonna come
forward and through all fours and to our Downward
Facing Dog, right away. Take a deep breath
in when you get there. And a long breath out
to shake the head loose. So, the mantra today is I am strong, but not in just
the physical body, or working in
the physical body, in mind and spirit. So hold on to
that feeling you had when you thought about one
thing you loved about yourself and anchor in that
feeling, that sensation as you move here in Down Dog and begin to cultivate
a more conscious breath. Press away from your
yoga mat with your hands. And then slowly inhale,
look forward, bend the knees, and exhale, make
your way to the top. Forward Fold,
take a couple breaths here. Strong awareness
throughout the whole body. Let it unravel. So when we become strong
and aware in our inner world, we’re able to move
with strength and awareness in the outer world. So yes the body can be,
and I would say is a reflection of that, so when
we’re strong in body, it’s easier to move that way. But really it’s gotta
come from the right place, we can’t just be arbitrarily
building these muscles and then hope for the best. When we look in the mirror,
we need to be able to feel the strength, not just see it. Okey doke, here we go. Slowly rolling up
whenever you’re ready. Nice and slow,
I’ll meet you in Mountain Pose. Connect to strong
footing as you roll up. And rise up
through your heart space. Lengthen through
the crown of the head. And if the feet
are not together, bring ’em really together so you can really feel that
awareness through the feet, that strong,
four-part equal standing. You might even lift the
toes so you can experiment with that, and then squeeze the legs together,
really together. And then inhale,
reach the arms all the way up and overhead. Really try to
maximize this stretch here. Draw your navel
inward and upward. Find that strength,
that support from within, it’s energetic,
it’s not just musculature. So draw energy up
through the front body. Ground through the back body. Squeeze the legs together. And then check it out,
right away, big inhale. Exhale, bend the knees,
send the hips back, Chair Pose. Do a little hair toss. ♫ I do my hair toss ♫ Check my nails Okay, open
(laughs) your palms wide, energy in the fingertips. Sink a little deeper,
you got this. Tuck the chin, lengthen
through the back of the neck. Hug the lower ribs in,
you’re doin’ awesome. Fabulous, then power up. Press into your feet. Reach for the sky. Root to rise here. Awesome work. And then exhale,
down we go, Forward Fold. Soft bend in the knees. Strong breath. Inhale lifts you up halfway. Play around here. Make each one
a little different, and then exhale,
soften and bow, forward fold. Great, plant the palms. Step the right foot back. Step the left foot back. Nice, strong plank. Power up here, you got this. We’re gonna rock
front and back here, just really creating
a nice long line from the crown to the tail. So press away
from your yoga mat. Press into all
your fingerprints. Reach the heels front and back, finding a nice
articulation through the feet, stretching through the feet. Yes, beautiful,
Downward Facing Dog. Inhale, lots of love in. Exhale, lots of love out. Hug the lower ribs in. So if you’re dumping
into the front body here, hug it in, hike it up and in. Contain that front body energy. Beautiful, then we’ll
bring the feet together and inhale,
lift the right leg up high. Exhale, knee to nose,
rounding through. Inhale, Three-legged Dog. And exhale, step it up. Nice, low lunge. Lower the back knee,
open the chest, inhale. And then exhale, press
into the top of the back foot. Send the hips back,
runner’s stretch or half splits. (exhaling breath) Now here we go. Move from your center, strong
and steady as we roll through. Come to a nice, low lunge,
curl the back toes under, and then we’re gonna
pivot and open up, Warrior II. Strong focus out past
your right fingertips. Strong lower body. And find that ease,
the grace in the upper body. Peaceful Warrior, keep
pressing into the outer edge of your back foot. Engage the left inner thigh. Inhale, reach right
fingertips forward, up and back. Inhale in here, stretch. And then exhale, right elbow
to the top of the right thigh. Extended side angle or you
can take the right fingertips all the way down and inhale,
open up towards the sky. Take a deep breath in here. Maybe the left
fingertips reach forward. And then exhale, all the way
back down to your low lunge. Keep the back knee
lowered or lifted here. Inhale, open the chest. Then exhale, plant the palms. Step it back, knees
can be on the ground here. We’re gonna lower
all the way to the belly. Big breath in. Exhale, lower down. Here we go,
inhale, Cobra lifts you up, open your heart,
keep the neck nice and long. And then exhale to release. Curl the toes under,
press up to all fours or plank. Big breath in. And then exhale to
your Downward Facing Dog. Great, take an inhale in here. Long breath out. Inhale, walk the feet
together and lift the left leg up high as you breathe in. Exhale, knee to nose,
press away from your yoga mat, round through the spine. Inhale, Three-legged Dog,
building strength. And exhale,
step it all the way through and lower the back knee. Loop the shoulders,
inhale, open your heart. And then exhale, send it back, press into the
top of the back foot, flex the left toes. Soft bend in that
knee here, half splits. And then here we go, rolling through that
front foot nice and slow. Opening up through the chest. Curl the back toes under. Then move from your center,
so connect to your core here. As you lift the back knee,
pivot on the back foot, and open all the
way up to Warrior II. Strong Warrior. So strong lower body,
strong foundation. We’re working with
our opposition here, lifting the front body,
grounding through the back body. Peaceful Warrior, here we go. Left fingertips reach forward. Keep that front
knee over the front ankle as you reach up and back. Inhale, find length. And exhale, here we go,
Extended Side Angle. Left elbow comes to
the top of the left thigh or maybe all the
way down in time. We inhale, reach for the sky. Variations here of
course are welcome. Using your
breath to find expansion and using the exhale to
gain stability, strength. One more big breath in. Then use your exhale
to come all the way back down to your lunge. Inhale to look forward. Exhale. Connect. Hands to earth. Send the left toes back. And we flow. Belly to Cobra or
Chaturanga to Upward Facing Dog, moving with your breath. Inhale, open the chest. And exhale to your Down Dog. You can also take
a Child’s Pose here. We’re gonna be
here for three breaths. Count them. Listen to them. (exhaling and inhaling) Wonderful, on your
next inhale, look forward. Soften through the knees and
make your way to the top. Big inhale lifts you up halfway. Find a lightness
as you lengthen. And then exhale, soften and bow. Root down through the feet. Squeeze the legs together. Inhale, reach for the sky. Yes. And exhale, hands to heart,
bring it all together. Close your eyes,
observe the breath here. Life is good. Open the eyes,
take a deep breath in. On the exhale,
send the fingertips forward, squeeze the legs together, and send the hips back,
Utkatasana, Chair Pose. Find a lightness,
make it your own. You are strong. And we need to be strong,
but we need that strength to really come
from a good place, to come from an honest place,
to come from within, so that we can use
our strength to do good in this dang world! Am I right? So take one more breath here,
maybe sink a little lower, lift your toes. Lengthen tailbone down. And then here we go, power up,
squeeze the legs together, press into the earth. Inhale, rise up. Yes, I am woman, hear me roar! Just kidding and exhale,
floating it down. (laughing) Have some fun. Big breath in lifts you
up halfway ladies and gents. And exhale, soften and bow. Bend the knees, plant the palms, step the right foot back. Step the left
foot back, Plank Pose. Great, this time
really reach the heels towards the back
edge of your mat. And reach the
crown of the head towards the front edge of your mat. Beautiful, building strength. Now in this Plank Pose,
you might start to tremble, you can always lower the
knees, even cross the ankles for style points. So just stick
with me, don’t give up. Can also come onto the
forearms, forearm plank, but it’s here that I’d like
you to send your gaze straight down, really fire up,
whole body experience. Fire up your breath
and think of something else that you really
freakin’ love about yourself, anything at all,
anything at all, anything you can think of. And when you have it and do
not give up until you have it, when you have something,
do you have it? You can release all
the way onto the belly. Hallelujah, slide the
hands in line with the ribs. Press into your
feet and inhale, Cobra. And exhale, pressing up
to all fours, Child’s Pose. Three breaths
here, count them out. Listen to the
sound of your breath. (inhaling and exhaling) Pro tip, I wipe a
little lavender or a little oil on my yoga mat so each
time I come to this relaxation or this pause, instead of my
mind swirling off, I can stay present
with my breath, contemplate my sensations. Hakuna matata. Enjoy the
essential oil on my mat. Okay, here we go. Coming back up to all fours. Take your time, take your time. You’re doing great work,
awesome work. We’re gonna
come to Downward Dog. Move at your own pace. And we’ll walk
the feet together. And inhale,
lift the right leg up high. Exhale, knee to nose. Inhale, right leg up high. Exhale, step it up. Lower the back knee. This time keep the
back toes curled under and inhale, sweep the arms
all the way up and overhead. Big breath in. Big breath out. Send the hips back,
big breath in. Half splits. And then check
it out, Warrior II. Back toes are
already curled under here. We transition, move with
your breath, Warrior II. Strong focus. Peaceful Warrior, inhale,
reach forward, up, and back. Take a deep breath in. Then exhale,
Extended Side Angle. Inhale to find
expansion here, breathe. Then exhale to come
all the way back down. Plant the palms, step it back. You can go
straight to Downward Dog or you can move belly to
Cobra or Chaturanga to Up Dog. In your Downward Dog,
take a deep breath in. Nice cleansing breath
out through the mouth. Walk the feet together. Inhale, lift the left
leg up high, stick with me. Exhale, knee to nose. Inhale, lifts you up. Exhale, step into
your low lunge. Lower the back knee. Move with care, inhale,
back toes are curled under. Reach the fingertips up high,
big stretch, opening. And exhale, rain it down. Send the hips back,
left toes towards the sky. Back toes are
curled under, here we go, moving from a place of
connect, rolling through that front foot,
pivoting on the back foot, and then sweeping the arms
all the way up and overhead, finding that nice, strong focus
as you send energy out way beyond the physical body, way beyond the fingertips. Peaceful Warrior,
inhale, reach forward. Draw a big line up and back. Inhale in. Exhale, Extended Side Angle. Take your time. Use the inhale
to find expansion. Exhale to draw
things in, connect. Find stability, one more breath. Then exhale,
pivot on the back foot. We come back to
our lunge, inhale. And exhale, plant the palms,
last call for a Vinyasa, take it or leave it.
You do not have to take it. Moving with your breath. Finding what feels good. We’ll meet in Downward Dog. In Down Dog,
take a deep breath in. Big cleansing
breath out, empty out. Walk the feet to
the middle of the mat. Hands to the feet. Bring the feet together,
really together. Inhale lifts you
up halfway, find length. Exhale to soften
and bow, beautiful. Root to rise here, really
squeeze the legs together, reach for the sky. And exhale, gather it
all in, hands to heart. Deep breath in. Long breath out,
observe your breath here. Maybe you can
feel your heart beat. Awesome work. Bat the eyelashes open,
open your eyes if they are not already, and we’re gonna take
the feet pretty wide. So wider than hip width apart. And then turn your toes
out and adjust your footing so that you can really
get your bum, your center underneath you,
so save this for the club, and for now (laughs),
we’re giving you mobility and strength for the club. So draw it in. Like I go to the
club anymore, okay, like I ever went to the club. More on that later,
lift up through your heart. So the main thing is we
want to kind of take this arching of the back and
take all this wonderful work we’ve done thus
far in our exploration to really connect to our core, so we’re not just creating
tension in the core muscles, but again, working
full body awareness. For some,
this’ll be a no-brainer. For others, you’re
maybe new to that awareness, that area of the body,
awareness, moving, and just one moving part. It’s tricky, take your time. Or if you’re
healing from an injury. Inhale, exhale, bend the knees, let them track your toes. So you might have
to walk your heels in. We’re coming into
Goddess Pose or Horse Pose, but I feel like
Goddess Pose is more powerful. So it can be
God or Goddess Pose. In my foundations of this video, we call it God or Goddess Pose. So hands are
gonna come at the heart if they are not
already, and as always, you can decide what
sort of flavor you want. You want something soft
to marry with this strength down below or do you
need the power of the elbows going out left to right
to really support you here? This is tricky and
we’re not gonna be here long, so breathe with me,
imagine you’re leaning up against a wall,
great for posture, great full-body strengthener. Inhale in, smile,
tap into that inner smile, and exhale, sink a
little lower, you got this. Then slowly release the hands
to the tops of the thighs and then we’re gonna
keep the feet pressing into all four corners,
keep the feet where they are and draw the left shoulder
into the center line. Big stretch. Tuck the chin into
the chest and lengthen through the neck here
and maybe you can even sink a little lower. Breathe into your belly,
great for the digestive organs. Careful you’re not
gripping in the toes. One more breath. Then inhale lifts you up. And then exhale,
right shoulder in. Press into the outer
edges of the feet, you got this. Tuck the chin,
make sure you’re lengthening through the neck. Breathe into your belly,
so feel your belly, your gut get some good air here. Someone please quote me on that. And then exhale, draw it back. Don’t give up. Bring the palms together. Actually bring the
right hand to a fist and left palm covers the fist
and we sink a little lower, a little lower,
a little lower, a little lower, and then release. (exhaling breath) Hallelujah. Walk the feet together,
heel-toe. Or you can hop it together. Or you can do a little dance. And we’re gonna walk or dance
back up to the top of the mat. Big inhale to reach for the sky. Clap the palms together,
the celebratory namaste, Jai. Take a Forward Fold
on your exhale. Great work everyone, big inhale. Exhale to release. Plant the palms. We’re actually just
gonna step back to Plank only to lower
the knees, step back. And then lower the knees. And then center
yourself on the mat, ’cause we’re
gonna come into Pigeon. Alright, and when you’re ready, extend the right leg out long. And then reel it in for your One-legged King Pigeon. So, take a look
at your left foot. Really root it to the ground. And then walk that right foot
out to a place that feels good or not, and then try to stack, so get up off of that thang! Get up off the right hip.
(laughs) And move mindfully,
thoughtfully, gently. See if you can open up
through the front body. I would say this is
the number one posture that I just kind
of forced myself into as a young person,
so be really mindful here. When you start opening up
this posture and many others, but since we come to this
one a lot in public class, from a place of connect,
oh, it’s so great. So prop that right butt
cheek up, that right hip as much as you need,
and we’ll find length, and then if you haven’t already, you have the option
here to come to the forearms or all the way to the forehead. And then try to stay
rooted in that back foot and keep an awareness,
a brightness, some energy in your right foot. And breathe. So sometimes the strength comes from the letting go. And sometimes, as I’m
sure we’ve all experienced at some point,
the letting go of what really is no longer serving you, maybe letting go of what is perhaps keeping you from feeling strong day-to-day, ironically takes strength. It can be tough. So as you breathe
here in this posture, have courage, garner the strength to let go, to allow for that release. Let go of any tension in
the neck and the shoulders, the forehead or the brow. And try to keep that
all soft and delicious as you slowly
make your way back up, and plant the palms on the
left side of your yoga mat. Then you can stay here or
you can walk the fingertips off the mat, so this
is bus stop one. Bus stop two. Walking off the left
side of your yoga mat. Or, pressing
into the right hand, we’ll find length
through the front body, grounding through the back body, and look back and maybe just
reach, look at your left toes, or you might bend
the left knee mindfully and grab either the
left ankle or the left toes. Breathe deep here. Draw the navel in and up. Find that hugging
of the lower ribs. Breathing deep here. And then everyone,
wherever you are, take one big, expansive breath. And then use your
exhale to release with control, either walking up,
releasing the left foot down. And together we’ll walk all
the way back to all fours, take your time. If you want to sway the hips
a little back and forth here you can, draw figure
eights with the pelvis, always feels good. And we’ll take
to the other side. Left leg extends. And then we’ll reel it in. Set yourself up for
greatness here mindfully. Acknowledge, honor how
this side is different, and then listen to your body, listen to your breath. Maybe you stay upright
today feeling that big stretch in the front of the right hip. Or maybe we take it down. Stay present. Stick with it. Maybe close your eyes. And find strength in letting go. Alright my darling friends,
take a deep breath in. Remember to release any
tension that you might be adding to the
jaw or the forehead, the neck or the shoulders
here as you come up. Hands come to the
right side of the mat. And you might just
embody the pose here, breathing. Or you might walk the
hands off to the right side of your yoga mat. Or you might look
back at your right toes. Find that place of
connect before you begin to bend that right knee,
and either grabbing the ankle or maybe in time
the tops of the toes, maybe in time we hook,
but just really be present, draw the navel
inward and upward. Find that lightness. Inhale. And then use your
exhale to slowly release with control, with grace. And we’ll all
come back to center. And back to all fours. Take the hips a
little left to right. Maybe some figure
eights with the pelvis. (clicks tongue) And then we’ll walk the knees
up a bit, cross the ankles. And come through and
all the way to our backs. So we’re wrapping up here. Bring the feet as
wide as your yoga mat. And the knees are
gonna fall to the right. We’ll interlace the fingertips,
bring ’em behind the head. Inhale in, and exhale, lift up. Inhale in, lower. Exhale, lift up. Inhale in, lower. Exhale, lift up and look up. Inhale, lower. Exhale, lift. Keep it going,
keep the elbows wide. So we’re getting a nice
little tapping of energy to the obliques,
while also enjoying this internal rotation of
the hip after your Pigeon. Take a couple more here. Don’t even worry about counting,
just move with your breath. Then release to center. Windshield wiper
the legs through. You’re gonna keep your
feet as wide as your yoga mat and then over to the left. And if you want
more restorative, you just chill here. Alright, otherwise big inhale. And exhale, lift. Inhale, lower. Exhale, lift. And you’re really
contracting in the side of the abdominal wall here. Exhale, navel draws in. Inhale, lower. Exhale, lift. Keep the elbows wide. Link up with your breath. We’ll do a couple more. And release, release the arms. Bring the knees back to center, and we’re just gonna slowly,
slowly inch the toes all the way out,
and when you arrive there, get centered on your mat. And we’ll just
windshield wiper the toes back and forth, back and forth. Then open the toes out,
open the arms out, snuggle your shoulder blades
underneath your heart space. Take the deepest breath
you’ve taken in all day. And as you exhale,
close your eyes and think of something
that you love about yourself, just one more damn thing. What’s something
you love about yourself? And if for some reason
you can’t think of anything, then answer the question,
what is something I can love about myself? That I could? And then just be open to that. Pumpin’ up the self
love today, gettin’ strong. Draw your left
hand to your heart. Right hand to your belly. Take a deep breath in. And as you exhale
(exhales) relax, you’re done. Thank you so much, my friends. Super strong, so amazing to
be on this journey with you. I’m so honored. I’m just so, so, so excited. Thank you so much
for your conversation. Please, if you’re willing,
share with us some of the things you love
about yourself down below. This is part of the practice. Comment down below. Tell us something,
one thing, or all three things that you love about yourself,
and we’ll lift each other up so that we can be strong in
both body and mind and spirit. You’re the best, take good care. Namaste. (lively orchestral music)

  1. Does anyone else look at what Adriene wears and how she has her hair, to find out how the intensity in the video will be? If she wears her hair loose and has a comfy t-shirt on, it's like "yeah!". If she wears a singlet and has her hair in a ponytail, then it's like "omg, no!". Haha!
    I love what you do so much, Adriene! All of these practices are amazing, even tho many of them are hard. But it is all about the adjustments, right? 🙂 Love you! <3

  2. "I do my hair toss, check my nails, baby how you feeling? Feeling good as hell!" That Lizzo song is so empowering. I started singing it when you said that! Anywho… I love my empathy for others and my perserverance and courage it took me to come to terms with who I am. <3 Oh and my curly hair! Thank you for the practice as always Adrienne!

  3. My three things <3 I love my new integrity in life, I love my ability to be open to new things AND I love my hurting feet <3 Thank you Adriene for this amazing videos! I love it <3 Love from Norway

  4. What I love about MYself: Sincerity, my inner child, responsiveness to the needs of others;
    What I COULD love about MYself: willpower, commitment

  5. I chose my strength- mentally as well as physically as I have Bipolar Disorder. Also my sense of humour- you need that if you're battling mental illness!
    These practises have improved my mental health and physical wellbeing so much, I'm very grateful to Adriene for being a constant inspiration to me and for yoga as a life changer. Namaste to you all.

  6. I love my perseverance. If it were not for that unforseen quality in me, I never would've made it through my hardships to see how great life can be. Thanks, Adrienne for providing us with a little namaste in this hectic world.

  7. it's 21.09.2018, i'm following this month's connect calendar which includes commune's yoga for all, and additionally this revolution calendar. two calendars at once, 2-3 practices a day, and the themes align somehow which is amazing!

    i love that i am holding on and still breathing. i love that i am following through my one year yoga journey (my first year!). i can love that i'm going at my own pace, or the pace my body and my mind allows me to be at, which in a sense makes me unique. i also love my nails, boobs and eyebrows these days 😆 these came up in this practice. namaste 🙂

  8. I would have never thought that I'd actually be able to come up with three things that I like about myself ever, but today was a good day and I actually managed: 1. That there are a lot of good people in my life who love and support me, which must mean that I am doing something very right. 2. That I am very determined and hard-working. It's true for a lot of things, but the fact that I do Yoga on the daily now (close to three month habit now! Go me!) is one thing that proves it. 3. It's my 21st birthday next week and reminiscing on what I've been doing so far I realised that I managed to fulfill all the things I aspired to do as a young child. I moved to my favourite city, got into the uni I always wanted to go to, I got an amazing job I love, good friends. I work hard on overcoming mental health issues, so not every day is sunshine and rainbows, but I am in a good place right now and I have to thank myself for that.
    I hope that everybody on here who couldn't come up with a thing knows that that doesn't mean that there is nothing to love about them. That they are still just as strong, that they are still just as lovable and that they can do it, that it will get better.

  9. Where have you been all my life! I am so behind! UK is always behind when it comes to well being which kind of makes me ahead!

  10. I LOVE the color of my eyes, I LOVE the fact that I do not give up on the goals & people I LOVE most, I LUUUUUUVVV mah resilience when it comes to difficult situations & people.

    ✨💜✨

  11. Thank you. It is good to keep coming back to your series. Every time i revisit , i learn something new, and tell myself, ' how come i did not notice this before?". The pigeon bend was great!

  12. I LOVED today’s practice! I’m saving this just so that I can do it again on another day! I loved that I could finally get my feet to touch each other when bringing them together. Sometimes I don’t see any movement on the scale, but my body tells me that it’s different when I am able to do these things that I couldn’t before. There’s more space, somehow, for everything to fit. I also have more energy. Yoga has got to be magic!

    I love my creativity, and inner strength! I love my family’s ability to always come together and get through the tough stuff. I love my yoga practice, lol.

    Side note, is it just me or does your yoga mat feel like home, or a safe space? I’m laying on my mat typing this, and it’s just so calming. It’s raining outside too, which is perfect. Namaste 🙏🏾

  13. I love that I am strong and still here to practice yoga, even when I am tired. I love that I am caring and loving and able to forgive.

  14. felt sad for the first time after yoga. even at the end of the video i couldnt find anything that i love about myself.

  15. Loved that practice, really needed it (mind and body). Even loved the situps, which are usually mighty low on my favourites list, haha!

    I love my creativity, my sense of humour and the fact that I’m always looking to improve myself, in being a good mother (although some days I really struggle with patience!) and in other areas of my life. 🙂

  16. WE love our LOVE for our animals…thank you for all the great workouts. We've been doing your yoga for four month and we are changed for ever. Thank you!

  17. Thank you Adriene! I love my playfulness, willingness to trust this process even when I don't want to and my eternal optimism.

  18. after this video i feel strong and soft at the same time. love it !!
    thank you adriene for this praxis an helping me to find this great feeling !!

  19. I love that I show up for myself, I love my determination and my shoulders lol
    I also love yoga with you Adrienne ❤️

  20. I love that I am a romantic, kind, and unique person. I think I knew this all along, but this practice helped me recognize that. Thank you Adriene for teaching us constantly to love ourselves and to let go. To be honest, today's practice was emotional for me. It was a little strange, but it was also very freeing <3 thanks again

  21. I love my strength! I'm in recovery from cancer treatment. I was so strong throughout my treatment but, ultimately, it weakened my body and my spirit. I'm now rebuilding my strength – in fact I feel stronger than ever – and a big part of that is down to daily yoga practice.

  22. Wow, I am really glad I did this ^^ I had interrupted my revolution journey a couple of days because of cramps and a cold and I was not feeling like it, but I really missed it.. yesterday I went back to day 8 for a soft practice, but I was a bit unsure about doing the "strength" practice already, I felt everything but strong. But I thought, I will give it a try. It felt great to resume my journey and thinking about things I love about myself was just what I needed to get back to my normal self. I love that I am good at cooking and that I made myself do this today. Thank you so much, Adriene!

    Much Love for you and this channel 💫💕
    This is at least my 8th time through this Revolution. Anxiously anticipating the next yoga challenge in 2019🎆
    ✨ THANK YOU ✨

  24. I was so scared of that practice because I thought I couldn't do it but…I did it! All! And the three things I love about myself? My strong sense of justice, my ability to see the funny side of everything and the fact that I've been open enough to let Adriene into my life because she is helping me kill it! Thank you so much Adriene.

  25. Thank you so much Adriene, I love practicing Yoga with you, it's not just yoga, it's also the positive vibe you share with us. Best 🙂

  26. I love how determined I am to keep going despite all odds. I love how confident I am in my sense of self and I love the fact that I'm so creative and aesthetic about everything I do.

  27. I really noticed how much I've grown and improved in this one . Feeling so strong and proud of myself . It made my entire day when u asked us to name things we love about ourselves and my list was endless . Thank u so much for helping me to be the best version of myself . I love u , girl .

  28. I love that ive been giving myself the space and time I need to develop as a person without judging myself in the process. I love that I'm honest and care for people and animals. I love that I'm going to deeper lengths to learn nutrition to care for myself and loved one's so we can have a stronger future. And I'm loving how this booty is shaping up

  29. You made me sweat today which I did NOT love, lol… but I did love that I showed up today and did the best I could after having such a bad practice yesterday. I also love that Im not afraid to be just who I am, be damned what others think! And I just want yo say that for any of you other newbies out there struggling with poses, I highly encourage the use of props. My yoga blocks have become my two best yoga buddies. They raise me up and allow me step thru from DD to lunge and so many other things. Im no skinny Adriene so I need all the help I can get and Ive finally realized there's no shame in that! Practice #111 finis!

  30. returning to this revolution 2 years later and it still serves; so well! I am so grateful for this community. three things i love about myself are 1. my ambition/drive/lifeforce 2. I love my body and all of its cells 3. I love my style.
    I love all of you people in this community also! thank you for being here to uplift, inspire and connect.
    namaste

  31. Today was the first time I have fully let go during pigeon pose. I've been letting go of a lot of fear lately and I feel like my emotional intelligence has finally been strengthened enough to let go!!

  32. My lower left back hurts! I felt like I pulled a Muscle a week ago, so I've been taking it slow, but I was wondering what CAN I do to get my flexibility back?

  33. I have the strength to take a decision, to get my mess together and take a step forward. I have the strength to let go everything doesn’t serve me. I have the strength to choose a good and happy life ⚓️

  34. I love that I am on my 3rd "30/31 days" Yoga journey. On my own time. Thank you again YWA for the videos. They make a lone wolf like me able to NamaSTE with a pack😉 xoxo

  35. My brain, my eyes and after some consideration, I always loved my tush when I was young and in shape, and during today's practice I decided I still love it in any shape, because it is mine. So there are my 3 things, brain, eyes, butt. Thanks again Adriene!!

  36. I love my determination. I get what I want! It sounds bratty, but if I set my sights on something I will do whatever it takes to achieve it. The second thing I acknowledged that I love is that I’m fairly intelligent. How often we take something as simple as literacy for granted, yet so many are not afforded the same privilege. Finally, I laughingly admitted I love that I’ve never wanted to be normal and how I express myself through my tattoos, piercings and ever-changing crazy hair colors.

  37. Man this practice after the last practice I feel SO STRONG!! Like throw whatever at me I'll catch it!!! The only thing I could think of that I love about myself is how hard I try. I'm not perfect but I try so hard, if I don't know something I will figure it out and master it.

  38. Honestly couldn't come up with anything. I donate blood (though rather infrequently), so I guess that is good.

  39. I love that I am sticking with this yoga practice and opening myself up to learn every day a different thing about myself and the world.

  40. I love that I do not fear change. I crave it. ALwAYS learning. Namaste all you beautiful people!

  41. I love my smile, i love that I’m starting to let go of things that no longer serve me, I love that I’ve committed to yoga and it’s less about the look and more about how I feel.

  42. The first time you asked me to think of something I love about myself, I could think of some things, however a little voice in my head commented and said "yeah but not really". During the process of this practice I realised that the thing that I thought what made me strong was my strict critical side, that little voice, always go for better, bigger, more. But just that voice has been what made me sad, scared, angry, not strong. At the end of the practice I could think of something I love about myself with confidence, without the critical voice. This has been a difficult process for years with reading books, having therapy etc. Your practice just gave me an awesome breakthrough! Thank you Adriene. You are awesome!

  43. I love who I am. I love the person I am becoming. I love my connection to the universe and the power within me.

  44. it's 2019 and I'm still loving this! I hope you are feeling the Namaste I give out after each day <3 Adriene and everyone else falling back to this series xoxo

  45. I LOVE
    1.that I stay dedicated to practicing and improving my foundation support
    2. No matter how discouraged i get and days that I miss….i return ready to start over
    3. I'm doing something for me…..for a better me
    Namaste🙏🏽😌

  46. Hi Adriene 😊 just finished day 114 of yoga!! I 💖 Yoga!! I'm in the process of self love and healing. The one thing that popped up on self love was the fact that I'm doing yoga and YWA daily and I've never felt or been better inside and outside!! Thank u for you're positive energy and support. Wishing you a blessed day Namaste friend🙏😊💓

  47. May I ask what I can use for scented oil on my yoga mat? Awesome practice today. When I saw the name I was like oh oh but I surprised myself and did really well! 🙂

  48. day 21 in books…the 3 things i love about myself r 1. gyming 2. yoga practicing 3. following healthy diet.

  49. I am a risk taker. I always pick myself back up. I'm patient. I'm humble. I'm open-minded. I am going to make the things I want happen.

  50. Doing this in summer of 2019, I love my work ethic, my eyes, and my creativity. Thank you for always making these moments of strength (which can get frustrating) into moments of love.

  51. Day 21! I love that I am adaptable and there for others. And I love that I am there for myself, keeping up as best as I can with this revolution, which by the way includes the effects of yoga, some of which were the actual, albeit secret, things I loved about myself when Adriene asked. 🙂

  52. I love my ability to make people smile. I love how I can make a friend so easily. I love my dedication to Yoga with Adrienne.

  53. Things I love about myself:
    My discipline with yoga
    My work ethic
    My compassion for others
    I’m a good friend
    I’m good at make up

  54. I love that my most passionate actions spring from good intentions, and so I'm not disappointed whenever I get stuck or I fail at something, because my heart is in the right place, and that's the only thing that matters.

  55. I am always a little afraid of power or strength practices. I could do this one!!! maybe I just grew stronger?!!??! And I just learned, that "I love that I am brave". I was not knowing that I am actually brave at all before. Really loved this practice! Thank you Adriene for all you do !!!!!! :-*
