May 2021 Yoga Calendar - TRUST

Scroll down for your free calendar and playlist for the month.

This month we are focusing on Trust as a practice.

Have you ever done a trust fall? You know, where you stand with your feet on the ground, back to the unknown, take a breath, relax your shoulders, make your body feel whole, like one moving part, then lean back and go?

Consider this collection of practices an opportunity to lean in, get centered, build strength, and find support from the inside out.

In this wild time of looking back and looking ahead, we may use these daily practices to root in the present.

A lot has been potentially stirred up in the last month or so, in the spirit of renewal, reconnecting, and reemergence. Together, let’s use the month of May to center so that we can surrender to the sublime, and embody trust in the present.

Please note: There will be core. 

When you are familiar with your center it’s easier to embody trust. When you feel centered you can take steps without being too concerned where they will lead. This collection of practices will help you anchor as you may continue to wake up and ask, “What’s next?” Keep an eye out for a brand new 12 min core condition session, uploading on May 3rd!

Trust that it is working.

This is a process based practice. So the more regularly you show up, the more likely you are to feel the impact. You will see and feel results, but this curation asks you to show up, do your best, and bring whatever it is you are holding each day.

Trust the process of yoga to deliver what you want to cultivate in your life.

In a culture that reinforces our need for immediate results, regular at home practice simply focuses on the incredible power of showing up. Trust that the rest will work it out from there. 

Summary: Just show up. 

And let’s get real, your time is valuable. For me trusting the yoga means being open to getting out of your head and into your body.  It means committing not to the yoga poses but to spending this time with yourself. Breathing, listening and trusting your instincts.

Right from the start… make the most of your commitment to this monthly calendar and trust yourself.

This will pave the path to truth.

You cannot love if you cannot trust.

And it all starts with you.

Trust what is true.



Here's what else you need to know

If this is your first time joining us, welcome! 

Each month, we come together as a community around a theme that inspires questions and guides intention for your practice both on and off the mat. 

The practices selected support your exploration of the theme, whether you are taking on the whole month or dropping in for a single whenever you like. 

The practices on the calendar are free and are all available on the Yoga With Adriene YouTube channel. To make things easy, we have created a monthly playlist for you to follow! 

You will also see some optional Find What Feels Good App practices on the calendar, they are noted as FWFG practices. We include alternate free YouTube practices on those days for those who are not members. Everyone wins, yoga for all.

  1. Thankyou so much Adrienne,
    My friend sent me this link,
    My father has recently passed on the 6th March, Pancreatic Cancer, taken in 8 days.
    I just feel numb, no motivation, so flat.
    On top of that I’m healing from a toxic relationship that is on/off, I am really thankful for your free sessions as this Covid has had a knock on effect with my business. My anxiety is high, so I really appreciate you and your generously.
    God bless
    Jo xXx

  2. Thank you Adriene for all your inspiration and Benji too. I don’t know how I would have gotten through the last year without you. I have told anyone and everyone who will listen about your channel and we even have a Facebook yoga group that follows your monthly calendar. I can’t thank you enough! Also we have named our yoga dog statue in the garden after Benji in his honor! Please keep providing us with yoga and peace and good vibes. We need it and you are an amazing instructor and exactly the calm presence that we need! Thank you so much for changing our lives for the better!

  3. I start a new job on Tuesday 4th May, the practice for that day feels like just what I'll need. Thank you for all these practices Adriene ♡

  4. Thank you for always being here for me Adriene, practicing yoga with you for the last few months has been the best thing that happened to me in a long time. Yoga has become my safe space 🙂

  5. Thank you for always seeming to know what I need! I continually feel as if each calendar that I have completed has been designed for me. All I can say is thank you again Adriene, thank you from the bottom of my heart ♥️

  6. Thanks Adriene, my life has been in constant betterment since I found your yoga series. ❤️

  7. Thank you for your passion and videos. I have seen improvement in my balance, my core, my legs, and my arthritis in my shoulder has improved. I’m going through menopause do you think you can dedicate some videos to that? Thanks again for your time and dedication.

  8. I joined this community during the Breath journey and can feel the difference a daily practice makes in my life and especially in my head. Love the monthly calendars - it makes it so easy to dedicate the time to myself each day without having to pick something to do on my own. With so much love and gratitude to you Adriene, your team, and this whole amazing community

  9. Thank you Adriene for always being there for me and having my back. I’ve learned so much from you that I’ve actually learned to have my own back! Thank you! ❤️

  10. Adrienne you have such a positive influence on my life. If I having physical or emotional struggles I also find a yoga session that suits perfectly. You are doing an amazing job.x

  11. Thanks Adrienne! We are looking forward to TRUST. It has been a fun journey since we first "met" you and Benji in January.

    Keep on singing,

    John and Kathy

  12. I first started your yoga when lockdown started in UK last March. It has changed my life. Thank-you Adriene you and Benji are a joy.

  13. Thank you for always inspiring us to keep showing up and respecting where our bodies are at and do it with love:)

  14. What an amazing Gal I've been following and doing your yoga practices from January this year! My 16 year old daughter has also discovered the benefits of yoga practice and meditation and also enjoys your sessions on you tube. Keep doing you. You're an inspiration to us all!

  15. When april finishes you have taken me through 6 months of daily yoga. Thank you Adriene for making me feel like I am actually worth this little time for myself every day. It's time to start my next 6 months now

  16. TRUST - so hard at times. To trust yourself, to trust others, to trust nature. I am ready!!!

  17. Yes! This is exactly where I am, acknowledging fear and vulnerability and leaning into trust. I’m constantly shocked that the simple I need to do is to let go and trust. Love you! ❤️

  18. Adriene,

    You are one of my angels—in company with with my mom and godmother and Mother Teresa.

    When I have some point to ponder I ask one of you wise women for help and then move on. I trust that the creator will work through one of you to inspire me—maybe to action, maybe to patience, maybe to release.

    My angels have proven trustworthy and you, dear Adriene, have been an anchor during this past year (when I was first introduced to you because studio yoga was closed down).

    I look forward to May’s focus on trust and affirm my belief in the divine.

  19. Great idea! Trust feels so good and yet it is so uncomfortable for me. I took a deeper breath just imagining it haha. I love you chica chica. You make my load a little lighter and some days that is just enough to keep my boat afloat

  20. This has been my mantra lately, “trust myself, it will get done!” Thank you, Adriene, perfect timing!

  21. Thank you Adriene - we trust you and appreciate that you help us anchoring into trust and to build trust up into ourselves. Best wishes from Germany, from the bottom of my heart! Andrea

  22. Looking forward to another month of daily practice with Yoga with Adriene (the best!).

  23. One of the things that yoga taught me is to ALLOW, like arrive in the moment.The more I learned to ALLOW myself the more I can GIVE to others, and one of the things that I really worked with doing yoga is to TRUST. Looking forward for the May practice. Thank you, Ms. Adriene.

  24. Dear Adriene, Thank you for Trusting yourself to bring us these wonderful inspiring calendars each month. Trust is hard, but ... I trust you to help me trust myself to do my best each day. You are a Blessing in my life. Namaste

  25. How do you know something is right for you? When you take a break an then come back. Life has ben trowing me some curve balls and I didn't practice with you this past month, only to realize what a grounding force you are. I am a yoga instructor and still benefit from paracticing with YOU every day. Thank you for giving so much to otheres!!!

    1. Hi Mark, all the 30 day series are beginner friendly. They start off at the beginning and build upon the previous practice each day. We also have a Yoga for Beginners playlist on the YouTube channel if you'd like to start there!

  26. Trust -- seems to me it needs to be more specific than that. I can't trust you with everything -- some things you have no control over. But I can trust that Adriene will continue to inspire and deliver. I can trust myself that I will continue to seek, to grow and to learn. And I can trust that the world will change. Nothing will stay the same forever.

  27. Perfect~Just what I need~Centering, Trust, Strength, Grounding in the Present! Thank you Adriene, Benji and Staff!

  28. Looking forward to this, I followed breath, with a late start and a very sporadic presence , but still showed up fully when I was on the mat.
    I’m want to be present each day on the day during this month of may. Plus you put in the core wake up, my favorite morning practice !!
    See you all soon on the mat

  29. I’m ready Adrienne! As usual you inspire me and I look forward to practicing with you every morning. Thank you❤️

  30. Kia ora, huge thanQ Adriene nd Benji for your sessions, I am so uplifted and inspired to keep moving forward.

  31. I always love receiving Adrienne's emails, they seem so heartfelt. I always feel so much better after leaving my mat. Namaste

  32. Absolutely LOVE that you are acknowledging International Nurses' Day -- thank you!

  33. I’ve followed Adriene for many years now in my daily yoga practice and have never been disappointed in a single class! She is a truly a talented inspiration and a whole lot of fun!

  34. Trust - what a big word. Finding space within and giving in to let "trust" grow is truly what I choose to explore this month. Thank you for your guiding and your sharing.

  35. I stepped away for two weeks to try and add a little more intensity to my routine, I was back by day 10 needed to be grounded again. It's good to be back and to receive this love letter today!! I always find just what I need from YWA! Thank you. Namaste.

  36. Perfect name for this because I have been working on showing up and I trust myself to show up to the mat ❤️❤️❤️

  37. This is beautiful. Divinely timed and exactly what I need at this time, thank you so much

    To all who join in this coming month, I wish you well. May you trust in yourself, your journey and the universe. Have a great time ‍♀️ Namaste fellow yogini’s xxx

    He will cover you with feathers,
    Give you refuge 'neath his wings.
    You will have no fear of darkest night
    or what the daylight brings.
    His own faithfulness will be your shield
    Because your spirit sings....
    - My GOD in whom I TRUST

  39. After a conversation with myself on a walk the other day, telling myself I need to trust the process! then this new May calendar show up, it’s truly meant to be!!
    I trust Adriene Mishler you’ve got my back, which after seeing a physio on Wednesday telling me I need more core work! I feel this was written for me !! ‍♂️

  40. I Trust, I let go,
    - falling fast
    A soft dulcet word touches my ear
    Her euphonious voice steals away my fear
    "Breathe" I breathe
    I start to slow
    Floating in time an space,
    Her words now wings of lace,
    Soaring High, I now fly
    Saved by your sweet grace.

  41. Thank you Adrien. Looking forward to May, new beginning, growth and colour. Thank you for being you and for being my constant yoga companion. The world is a better place with you in it. Thank you.
    Namaste and mingi love.

  42. I started to practice yoga when the pandemic started, and I was looking for someone local in YouTube, and found you! It has been an incredible journey and I'm really grateful to have found someone as you and the practice you share with us. Keep it up!!!

  43. I just want to thank you for getting both my daughter and me involved with yoga. It’s been a really positive experience. Thank you again!

  44. Thank you! These calendars and practices have been a gift during this last year. I am grateful to be part of this community.
    Gratitude from Tokyo.

  45. You are the best Adriene! I can't thank you enough for all that you do for all of us!

  46. My daughter in law got me turned on to Adrienne. Could not be more grateful. Have been practicing every day since January 1 2021. I am 68 years old and appreciate the encouragement and the modifications. Also love the monthly calendars. They help me to continue to be committed.

  47. Dear adriene, You bring oxygen, love and joy and strength and beauty! Thank you for your inspiration and practices and breathing with this community⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  48. FWFG!!! That is the best advise I've received ever! Adrienne, you have inspired me so much this year! I can't thank you enough! I've found my inner self/strength and most importantly I'm true to myself! Keep it real my friend!

  49. Fantastic theme for the month – just wrote out this weeks' practices in my diary and had a little chuckle to myself about the relevancy of Gratitude, Social Anxiety, Insecurity and Vulnerability. You're wonderful Adriene, a complete Universe-gifted blessing for my mental state right now.

  50. Thank you, Adrienne.
    You and yoga have benefited me over and over for the past four (4) years.
    I am a proud yogi, prideful of my discipline to this practice and my dedication to myself for 6 or 60 minutes everyday.
    Be blessed.
    P.S. I love your outfit from May 3rd! Bring on Spring!

  51. Good day Adrienne! I love today's core workout it was just what I needed. I am going to do my best to "show up" each day this month.
    Blessing to you and all the yogi's out there.

  52. Nice to see a comment from someone around my age. I started about 4 yrs ago with Adriene and practice 3 to 5 times a wk. I love that I'm doing something for my body as I age that is so nurturing. I hope you continue to enjoy yoga.

  53. Hello Adriene,

    Thank you for always giving. Much appreciated. Love love love your yogie sessions with Bengie too. My 2 dogs Indie Golden Doodle and Holly cockapoo also is like Bengie always me!!! Keep up the excellent work. A big Hug from Glendown, Churchill, Letterkenny Co. Donegal Ireland!!!!

  54. Thank you Adriene for all the yoga and intentions that you have inspired me. To look into myself and learn that I am not alone. Being in the present moment is what I want to practice.

  55. Is there any way to have these monthly calendars set up digitally in an actual shared YWA group calendar? I just think it would be a great option if it could sync with our digital calendars as an all-day event, ideally with a link to the youtube video.

  56. hey adrian. ive been following you foe over a year and i really appriciate ur work and ur willingness to share.
