Yoga for Brain Power

12 Min Yoga for Brain Power!

With the growing popularity of yoga practices in the West, it can be pretty easy to overlook the incredible benefits that regular yoga practice can have, not just on your body, but on your brain too!

In an effort to soak up all the benefits of yoga for your brain, I believe it really is more important that you are able to practice regularly by doing what you can, when you can, rather than knocking out a 90 min sweat or sculpt weekly. A little truly goes a long way.

So, roll out your mat and use this 12 minute rejuvenating yoga break for an instant cognitive boost. This flow is great for increasing fresh blood and oxygen to your beautiful brain. With an emphasis on awareness and centering, this yoga practice helps to stimulate blood flow to the brain, relax the mind, increase focus and improve memory.

  1. Just what I needed this morning - feel much more awake, energetic and positive after that little boost!
    Thank you Adriene.

  2. I have a brand new baby grandson so I really thought this subject was for me! I wonder how cold it is in Texas? We have already had minus 25 windchill in North Bay!

  3. Hi Adriene,

    I am trying to my body for a future pregnancy, so the repetition of the word baby seemed like hiting so me lol. It came at the right time, because I do not only need to think of building a stronger body and mind for myself, but also for the future renter. Thank you for your lovely videos and messages.



  4. Good morning--I have now been practicing yoga with you, Adriene, for a full year. I join you on the mat at least 6 days a week, and now I can't imagine my life without this at-home practice. I just want to thank you for the difference you've made in my life. I am stronger and more trim physically, of course, but also have a much better balance of mind, body, and spirit. Thank you for encouraging uus all to find what feels good. YWA is it for me.

  5. Once again i learned something new today from You, Thank You so much, and i Love your sound effects and love what you are doing with your hair too, i don't have a Benji at home with me but i have a kitty cat that joins me every morning it's great having a partner to hit the mat with.

    1. It really is! My cat, Olive, joins me most mornings. It's the best when I get to finial meditation pose sitting up right and she crawls right in my lap. Animals are the best. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Thank you Adriene! What a great way to use 12 minutes this morning! I have a little 12 lb shih-Tzu named Mei Li who comes to sit on my mat with me! xoxo

  10. This was great! I am still not able to do a tree pose, but my balance was better even by the end of the practice.

  11. You really had me with your baby subject haha!
    I dont have a benji or cat but I do have two kids who jump on my back while in plank or downward facing dog, thats just as relaxing right? "/ haha
    Thank you for all your lessons!

  12. Hi Adriene,

    As usual, your video is amazing. I just started following your videos on YouTube. I was wondering if this video can be used for kids as well to improve their focus and attention.Please let me know. Thank You.
    ( I'm an Indian but i should say I am really impressed by your sincerity when you greet us in your videos!)

  14. My dear Adriene,
    Your yoga classes completely changed my life in such a positive way and I thank you so much for that. When do you plan to visit Switzerland?

  15. I'm still not convinced that wasn't a low-key pregnancy announcement. It made me smile, so I'm gonna roll with it even if it's not true. Namaste and Happy Thanksgiving.
