  1. BEGINNER'S MIND! SUCH A POWERFUL TOOL!
    This week, find other moments in which you can integrate this practice. Sitting down for breakfast, driving in traffic, putting your babe to bed, greeting a friend or partner.

    This week, what is one place you will implement this practice?

  2. Hi Adriene, remembering my first time took me way back- to 4th grade! I had a great teacher who was way before her time, and she did some yoga with us in class. This was in 1971-72, and this teacher (I wish I could remember her name but it escapes me right now) was very young and hip. She played guitar too and taught us folk songs, (If I had a Hammer, Erie Canal). Anyway, what a great memory and realization that she really helped me learn how to get grounded in my body- this is something I really needed as a kid.

  3. love this video! I HAVE BEEN having such a great few weeks since ive gotten back into practicing with your videos. THANK YOU SO MUCH

  4. I have started a new job and am in orientation this week. I am facing each moment, even the longer commute with gratitude and fresh insight:)

  5. Was able to do this practice yesterday, despite being unwell with a gut infection. In fact I think it is s good gentle way to go if you are unwell and don't want to skip your time on the mat. Thank you Adriene xx Namaste 💟💟

  6. Being simple isn’t boring. Being humble isn’t a weakness. Being genuine isn’t a downside. A basic mindset, a modest personality, and a compassionate heart can bring about goodness in everything ☺️✨ Thank you so much Adriene and namaste 🙏🏻💗

  7. It’s day 3 of the yoga rebirth challenge and i was feeling cranky and sick today – super NOT motivated to do this video so I made a little compromise with myself and did the whole vid lying down in bed and boy did that add another layer to the beginner’s mind! Not only was the practice both relaxing and a little challenging in doing this, but it made me feel really good for pushing through feeling sick and sluggy. Love love love your videos and your intention; thank youuuuu Adriene (and benji 🐶🖤)

  8. It's almost like each practice knows exactly what I need each day and I love that about my practices cause I always leave the mat better than I came to it and that's an amazing feeling each time so thank you Adriene , much love to you and benji, Namaste Everyone and goodnight 💕💞💓💗💖❤🙏🐶🙏

  9. Doing this practice today, I realize how far I've come in my practice. When I started yoga, I felt like I had to prove myself and I had no idea what I was doing. I realize today how much that is something that I've practiced in my life outside of yoga for a long time and with this awareness can start to change that, and own where I am, instead of trying to prove myself to someone else. Also, I realized that I'm much better at triangle than I thought. I always have a block handy for that pose and working from the ground up could fully get into it today. I was happily surprised!

  10. Following the September 2019 Calendar: Rebirth. Getting back into the groove after having a baby. Did this practice with my little one laying on my mat watching me. The theme felt apropos for the both of us 🙂 Thank you, Adriene!

  11. So much to learn everyday! I’m still new enough that each time I’m on the mat I’m surprised. Anyway, here’s a basic question. When you say press down on the front of your feet, is that a light stability press or a strong press as if someone couldn’t easily push you over? For example in the cow/cat flow? Thanks! Hello to all the peeps doing the September playlist 🙂

  12. I hope you keep in mind that the whole world loves you – and sends as much love back to you while watching your videos. Thank you for this!

  13. Thank you adriene,about every think,for yoga,your motivation voice& your beautiful smile🌺🌷🧘🏻‍♀️it was a beautiful thing to begain a new year with you,
    practising yoga with you from 1.1.2019
    thanks❤

  14. I have done this practice when I am beginning to pick up yoga again after not practicing for a while and it reminds me that my beginner's mind has something to teach me instead of feeling bad as if I need to catch up. Thank you, Adriene.

  15. Gave myself permission to empty the cup and start from scratch- I’m almost jealous there are people who will drop into this as their first ever yoga practice! Loved it!

  16. Namaste Adriene! Thank you for a refreshing practice and kindly reminder to remain open and learn.

  17. Wonderful… and surprising to practice with a beginners' mindset – gave me lots to think about on and off the mat!

  18. This practice took me back. I was mindfully trying my best to go back to where I started in my yoga practice. I found it very refreshing and funnily enough made my mind let go even more. Loved todays practice ❤️ Namaste 🙏

  19. I LOVE this! I've been practicing for 20 years. I love thinking back to that first class with my teenage daughter when I was just 39 years old. Twenty years later, my 59-year-old body is much different and needs a different practice, and Adriene gives me just what I need to FIND WHAT FEELS GOOD! I have a few "first times" to remember – first class ever, first time with my first really awesome yoga instructor, first time doing yin yoga that saved me at the time, first time with Adriene. I am grateful for them all. I look forward to 20 more years of yoga. I can only imagine what it will be like at 79! Adriene, as always, thank you.

  20. I have been doing yoga for 20years, but today I acknowledged places I speed through due to pain and places I enjoy slowing my roll because the stretch feels so good. I slowed down in the painful areas to become aware of why there was pain and if there was something I could do differently (spoiler alert: there was!). While I don’t remember the first yoga class, day 1, I do remember feeling like I would never get it, like the poses were for some rubber band of a person, and like my injuries would never allow me to move on. All of those have changed and my injuries have healed over time, new ones replacing the old and themselves healing, too—faster in part due to the daily practice of yoga. Thank you, Adriene, for a mindful practice. Love your show!
