  1. I have recently discovered your website and think it's just wonderful. It really is a ministry. You're reaching so many people in an amazing way. I was wondering if you would consider making a video greared towards pre-teen/teen girls? It's so important for them to be comfortable with and mindful of their bodies at this age. I have daughters, 11 and 12, that are enjoying the foundations of yoga videos and would really love something tailored just for them. Thank you.

  2. Hi! I love your videos. I am a beginner and really appreciate you taking the time to break down each pose it makes doing a whole yoga work out less intimidating. I do have one question about this half moon pose. When ever I do this position my leg's (the one that stays connected to the ground) hip hurts really bad. Is that normal and I just need to keep practicing or is it something I should be careful with? I know you arnt a doctor or anything but I thought getting an opinion from someone who gets yoga would be smart. Thank you so so much! God bless:)

  5. You make it look so easy. I just couldn't do this pose - I felt like a mental midget; like I wasn't getting it! However, I WILL keep trying! Thank you for all your videos. You come into my family room every morning. Since I started my practice only two months ago, I have experienced so many benefits. Yoga has really helped with my stress and anxiety levels and with my flexibility too which means a lot at 59! Looking forward to hearing about your new place and yoga room. Lots of scratches for Benji 😉

  6. Thank you so much, Adriene...I love your videos.! I've watched countless Youtubes and yours are by far the most complete, professional, light-hearted and inspiring. You are a really gifted teacher who has made my yoga journey lighter as well as deeper. Namaste.
