  1. Thank you for your gift of generosity by sharing your 30 day challenge. I had already decided I was going practice yoga every day for the month of January. I was not sure how to choose a video then I came across yours. I love it. I am on day 5 because I live in New York I am an hour ahead of Texas. I practice early so you may not have posted the video for that day yet. But I don't care.. I am just thrilled that I found you and your website.

  2. Thank you Adriene! I've been doing each new video once in the morning and then again in the evening. It's helping my practice and making feel great. I hope you know how special you are and that your work is touching so many. Namaste. Love from Chicago.. Paige.

  3. That was my favourite workout so far! I really liked the warrior pose and triangle pose! It felt soooo good. And I felt strong! WOHAAA!
    Love from Poland!

  4. My mother and I are doing this together and we are loving the experience. Not only is it helping us to feel better and help us relax after work, but we are spending time together. Thank you Adriene

  5. Great practice again today! Triangle pose is a real challenge! My hamstrings and shoulders are way too tight! Keep on keeping on!

  6. I loved today's practice!!! It was the perfect day for a little yoga to get over my winter blues! I'm loving getting on the mat every day and feeling my body and my mentality change, I'm feeling happier and more relaxed each day! Namaste!

  7. Hey Adriene,

    I'm really loving your 30 days of yoga program! I'm a complete beginner and enjoying to play with all these new postures every day. You give me a great start of each day, thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Only one question: I've subscribed to the downloadable edition. No problems with the video's, but I'm not receiving the daily emails from you.. ๐Ÿ™ Can I still receive them somehow?

    Namaste from the Netherlands

  8. Loved the pants, Adriene ๐Ÿ™‚ Was glad it was only a shorty today as it is 10:30 pm for me now and I am ready for bed. So did not feel so alive during the practice but it was still nice to have a good stretch at the end of a long day. Thank you!

  9. Thank you Adriene for doing this! I am really enjoying it. You are such a joy to do yoga with.

  10. Hey Adriene,

    I'm still on day 5, but I want to thank you, that the beginning of the challenge brought me back to the mat with ease and comfort. I've been trying to find my way back since November, but I was always able to find excuses. / Despite of the fact that for yoga, you don't need excuses, because he need to focus on you and your mental state/. These first five days really helped me to re-find what feels good once again. Everyday, when I finish work, I can't wait to go back home and do my new yoga challenge.

    Thank you for being with us, helping us, guiding us through our transition.



    <3 btw I love your new puppy doggy, it's amazingly cuteeeeee

  11. I've been practicing for about a year, with you and other yogis on YouTube. So excited about this 30 day set! I'm reading about day 5 this morning because I can't wait to get back on the mat this evening! What a great way to reconnect to my practice and create a daily practice. Thank you for your generosity!

  12. Hi from Holland! I love your yogalessons. I read about in Flow Magazine and now I'm following your 30 days of yoga. Thanks!

  13. Hi Adriene! Messaging you all the way from Kenya, just started your 30 day yoga challenge as a complete beginner in need of a workout routine I enjoy and can stick to with ease and I am absolutely loving it! Already feeling flexible and alive on day five! Thank you so much! Looking forward to the rest of the videos!

  14. Each day seems fresh and new. I really need a program like this 30 day session to help my practice expand and get in the every day flow of exercise. I look forward to each new session and since I am behind I may do another session today. :).

    Thank you.

  15. I just finished up on day 5! I feel great and full of energy! ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm 4 days late on the 30 day challenge! But I look forward to completing it! And most of all seeing my body, mind and spirit grow! Thank you for your time!

  16. Thank you for producing and posting these yoga videos. A college at work told me about them this past week. I am forever grateful she did!

    Adriene, you surely have a talent and gift as a yoga instructor. I will sing your praises and say your instruction is easy to follow and includes my "practice level." I love your sequences as well.


  17. I love your tiger pants!! Thanks for another great day of Yoga! I am really enjoying playing on my mat ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Hi Adriene,

    Just wanted to say thank you for creating these wonderful yoga videos! I'm only on day 5 but I'm already feeling GREAT! I'd been trying to find a way back to yoga since having twins (over extended hips and shockingly bad back) and hadn't found anything right until now. You have a fun and kind energy about you that is inspiring and makes me smile everyday.

    I have to admit after day 2, I cried! (embarrassment alert!) Not out of pain or joy, just shear release and taking time out for me.

    So thank you, thank you for bringing me back to my mat, you're doing a wonderful job.


  19. Hi there,
    THANK YOU! I am a yoga instructor living in Canada and have just gone back to work full time (not teaching but my "day" job) after being on maternity leave for a year. I've found that since I'm back at work full time the only time I am getting to my mat is on the two days a week I teach - boooo to me! This 30 day challenge has brought me back to the mat as a student who is doing it just for me! It's made me fall in love with my practice again...I know, horrible for a teacher to admit, but sometimes it hard to remember that you love this and it isn't just a job.
    Also, your playful approach is similar to mine - LOVE It. We can't take our practice (or ourselves) too seriously! You're awesome and just wanted you to know it! xo

  20. I'm notoriously bad at sticking with things consistently, and I'm so encouraged that it's day 5 and I'm still with it--I'm actually excited to get on the mat every morning and even doubling up in the evenings with some of your other videos. Thank you for creating a program so calming, enlivening, and easy to follow!

  21. Every day I find easier to follow your videos, I feel like I'm getting better at it. You're very inspiring! ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. DAY 5: Feel Alive!!! Time to rock and roll and get rid of the kinks and start winking at life!!! Many of the poses are challenging areas of my body with screeches of discomfort which is great, because it means I'm knocking on their door and they are responding! Also noticed there is quite a bit of "seasoned body fat" that when gone would make my practice and my body feel more at ease. Also feeling the lower back begin to loosen and strengthen. As a frequent flyer on the computer (laptop) my wrists are also happy to be extending themselves. All in all I'm happy I said YES to your 30 Day-Yoga Challenge Adriene. For those who feel the water may be too cold, come back in, the water is fine and scrumptious and will begin to feel comfortable the longer you stay with it! Masha Danki Adriene!!!!

  23. Thank you for the wonderful session. I was a little late to start the challenge however I'm doing it each day now. Better late than never! Thank you so much for this gift. Namaste

  24. Hi Adrienne,
    Hi from Canada. Thanks a lot for sharing your practice, I am new at yoga and I am enjoying it a lot. I also shared your link with my mom, who never tried yoga before.

    All the best

  25. Hi ๐Ÿ™‚
    I see you're reaching people from Poland and Canada and wanted to add the Netherlands to the list.


  26. hi Adrienne
    I had stopped doing yoga for over 2 years. So I decided to try the 30 day yoga it has reignited my passion for yoga.
    Keep it up

  27. Thank you so much for doing this Adriene. Just 5 days in and I'm already feeling an improvement in my overall well being. I love that you check in and let your yogis know to smile during their practice - I find I start doing that now randomly throughout! My body already feels stronger and more in tune thanks to your videos and the daily emails help me to stay motivated!! You combine humble peacefulness with a little bit of playful humor and it's making this the best yoga experience I've had thus far ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. It's amazing how well these are lining up with my life. We're going on a big hike today, so I was hoping for a short and sweet practice, and it was! Yippee!

    I love how you keep talking about creating space, melting the shoulders, and lifting the heart - in all sorts of poses where I was totally neglecting to remember to do that. I've been carrying that to my life: yesterday was the first time I scrubbed the floors, scrubbed the tub, and did the dishes without getting painfully tight in my upper back. I'm really starting to live my yoga off the mat with this practice.

  29. Hi Adriene,

    I was so happy to see the download option for the 30 day videos, as my connection is intermittent. But, the payment form won't accept my payment. I'm wondering if this may be because I entered my Canadian postal code in the zip code field? Would you kindly email me directly?

  30. Thank you so much Adriene!
    Day 5 - Ooh ! Those were not easy poses to do. But feel so good after doing it. Total stretches for the body. I enjoyed it.

    Namaste Adriene and my fellow yogis.

  31. Loving this challenge so much! I am noticing such changes in my body, feeling stronger and learning quite a bit. I combine the daily video with your yoga for lower back video where I have a lot of tightness and that has been awesome.

    Thanks for doing what you do!

  32. Great session. Love day 5. Playing catch up as I was naughty a missed 2 days this week. Thanks Adrienne! x

  33. Dear Adriene, YOU ARE AWESOME!! I am on Day 5 out of 30 and LOVING IT!! I'm still not sure how I stumbled across your video on You Tube but boy am I happy I did!! I first started practicing Yoga 3 years ago and dove into the deep end Bikram style in my local centre. Sadly though classes became more and more expensive and I had to stop going despite feeling the best I had done in years, I was SO upset and a bit resentful as I thought surely Yoga should not be about profit anyway?! A year on and I find myself itching to get back on the mat and just generally get myself back in shape after a stressful time of life and work. Fortunately I found your videos and am so grateful, THANK YOU! You bring a laughter and light to practice which I hadn't experienced before and it is a beautiful reminder to not take ourselves so seriously! So despite working 12.5 hour shifts and getting home tired and hungry, I'm still managing to get on my mat and that is down to your generosity of sharing your practice with others! Keep up the good work and many thanks again!!

  34. Today was sooooo great! I had an amazing workout before that yoga video and now feeling so energized like I could achieve anything! ๐Ÿ™‚
    By the way, love your pants!

  35. I love the pants! They're so fun and vibrant. You can't help but smile when you look at them. Thank you again for this 30 day challenge. I've noticed myself making an unconscious effort to sit up straighter at my desk. Little changes every day add up! <3

  36. I am a beginner and I am only on day 5, and I feel stronger and better already!!

    Thank Adriene!!!

  37. Thank you for this thirty day challenge! I am using it to gradually ease me into more yoga and eventually running to prepare me for a few races this summer. It's so nice to have such a useful, free yoga resource for us uni students who are still a tad broke from the school year ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Hi,

    Thank you for putting together the 30 day challenge. For some reason your emails have stopped at day 5. I have checked junk mail and inbox.... nothing. Can you help?

  39. Hi, Adriene! Thank you so much for the 30 days yoga challenge! I enjoy every minute of it, you are such a vibrant and inspiring person. Bur most of all, you are AWSOME!

    Lots of yogi love!

  40. Thank you so much Adriene for this wonderful opportunity to stretch and practice to improve my overall health and wellness by sharing your yoga videos daily for free! I am now in my Day 5 and I really feel alive after the session. I am always excited to receive your yoga videos everyday! I love it more each day! Your talent is so amazing yet you use it generously to the yoga enthusiasts all over the world. God bless you more!
    See you tomorrow in your Day 6 video!
    Greetings from Oman!

  41. […] Day 5: ย My body is still not 100% in terms of functioning, but I am determined to keep going with this challenge. Today’s session is less than 20 minutes, so I’m not mad at that. ย I have yoga class later today, so I will consider this my warm up for the day. Day 5 is complete. […]

  42. Thanks for this Adriene. I've taken classes for 10 years and we always break in the summer. This summer I'm practicing with you every day and I'm feeling more balanced and will "wow" my instructor when I return to class this fall. You are super inspirational and I love your sense of humour. I'm setting my intentions each day and setting goals for myself. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

  43. I love how you give us tips for checking alignment. I have been practicing for years and never gotten just how to fix my body when in various positions until now. Thank you!

  44. It's almost 2016, and I'm just discovering your 30 Days of Yoga. I just want you to know that no matter when we start our 30 days, it's an absolute joy--and so are you! I am thoroughly enjoying each video, and I truly appreciate the care and the quality that you have built into the production of each one. Your sense of humor is the cherry on top!

  45. Adrienne, awesome stuff. I can do this in the morning at home without going anywhere - and I like the price. I appreciate how you invite others to donate - a good and generous business model. Mostly, I love your vibe. You could be a friend. I'd love to meet you someday

  46. These videos are an amazing gift for me. This is the,first time ever that i have: 1. Been able to follow and stay with a practice in many years. 2. Posted comments to anything--that is how good tgese make me feel. I am 3 days behind the emails because u started 1 day late, and then was laid up for 2 days after a fall in my garden. This morning i was bsck on the mat, grateful to be stretching out. Your encouragement enables me to be non-judgmental and hopeful sbout my practice, to keep moving and testing my body gently without giving up. Namaste!

  47. Thank you!!! for this gift of 30 yoga, it's taken me longer than the 30 days had some set back BUT alway return to get to the finish line, it's my goal.

  48. Adriene, thank You for all of this! I'm so grateful for Your videos. I'm on Day 5 and I want more, despite aching muscles. On the first day of practice I felt much better, it really helps me get through difficult times. See You tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

  49. Where have you been all my life!? I am so grateful for your 30 day challenge!!!! I am a stay at home Mom of two babies...I am tired, I am sore...this challenge is bringing me back to life, to connecting with my body again. I hope you always know how amazing you are for sharing your gift with others. I have a newfound love for Yoga! Thank you!

  50. Adriene, I am enjoying this sooo much! Getting up early, no matter how late I go to bed the night before, because it's beautiful being on the mat and doing yoga with you as the sun comes up and the birds sing outside my window. Thank you sooo much xx

  51. I'll start off by saying that I never comment on things but I just really wanted to say thank you. Seriously, this is changing my life. A year ago my husband and I adopted four rediculously awesome in addition to our two bio kids. It has been an amazing journey but my body has taken so much of the stress--I look like I've aged 7 years. I've put on weight and I operate mostly on coffee. I have done at least one of your videos every day for about ten days and I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER. I have less cravings, I don't feel like crashing after yoga- I actually have more energy! This is seriously a game changer. It's not a rare sight to see me and 6 kiddos pull up a yoga mat (or favorite blankie) and rock out to one of your videos. My kids love you, they think you're "probably really nice." Thanks for all your free videos and Lโค๏ธVE!

  52. Thank you for this 30 day yoga challenge, I've just done day 5 and loved this routine. I have struggled each day but felt stronger today and able to relax more into the poses. Feeling like I'm doing something good for myself.

  53. Hello Adrienne! I recently started 30 days of yoga as a complete beginner. I absolutely love yoga and you! I did have a question. When I do my warrior pose, I feel a tickle in my tail bone. I was wondering if that was normal or if maybe I'm doing something wrong? Thanks!!

  54. you're amazing! you have a way of knowing just how I'm probably feeling at any moment and gently reminding that tells me you really know your stuff. I love my sessions with you each day and I'm not overwhelmed or feeling overworked and sore the next day. thank you so much for this gentle intro back into yoga.

  55. Dear Adrienne, You have been such a gift in my life! I have been doing your series of yoga since Feb, 2019 and it has made remarkable changes. I grow organic blueberries in northern MN and thanks to the daily yoga, I am able to kneel, bend, pull, pick and smile! NO back pain. I am 68 years old and four years ago, my muscles were 'frozen'. Working in the blueberry field was difficult then and they weren't producing like they are today. I keep telling people about your wonderful videos and gentle style. I remind them that it starts wherever their body is and you can get more flexible. Namaste!

  56. Adrienne, After putting off a regular yoga practice, thinking I could never find time for it in my active semi-retiree live, your 30 day journey has me very keen to make yoga a definite part of my daily patterns. Now at day 5, I look forward to each session and happily share your site with all who share with me their need for wellness in mind, body and spirit midst a world facing a public health crisis.

  57. Adriene is natural teacher with a soothing voice. I am doing the 30 day challenge and feel so good after every class. Very grateful for these videos. She is the perfect Yoga teacher. Thank you Adriene for sharing your talents and time so freely.
