Meditation For Inner Peace - Yoga With Adriene



hello friends near and far and welcome to yoga with Adriene I'm Adriene today we have a special meditation this is a very simple practice you don't need anything but an open mind and an open heart you don't even need a lot of time we're going to take a moment to go inward to connect with what matters most we're going to use the breath to soothe your soul find that inner calm and of course to find what feels good let's balance it out hop into something comfy and let's get started all right my sweet friends let's begin in a nice comfortable seat whoo khasinau with the legs crossed try to sit up nice and tall best you can we're going to drop right in so whatever you have going on today whatever became whatever will happen before this moment whatever is going to have a naturalist we're going to really just allow that to dissolve and we're going to do our best for this very short time we have together to really just tap into the breadth and quality of movement and essentially find our chill going inward seeing what that will do for us for the rest of our day but for now really into this present moment so in order to do that I'm going to invite you to close the eyes and quietly repeat this mantra to yourself I choose to let go I choose to let go sit up nice and tall and one more time repeat this mantra quietly to yourself I choose to let go and start to listen to the sound of your breath and start to relax the shoulders down begin to imagine space in between each vertebra and so the quality of energy that runs up and down the spine slowly starts to change even if just a little bit and continue to notice the side of your breath and with the eyes closed we just check out what's going on inside notice where you might be holding or gripping and the shoulders maybe just let them drape down the back body maybe you're gripping in the toes or the finger have you softened maybe you're leaning a little forward and you could stand to tuck the chin and lean back and after you've taken a moment to notice what's going on physically just take a moment to just very gently notice what's going on emotionally in the present moment this is really a way of just honoring and recognizing the different kinds of intelligence of the body and please begin to notice an audible breath so this can be a je breath or just a breath you can hear that you can really listen to and with the eyes closed continue to listen to the sound of your breath and see if you can connect the moment that the inhalation and the exhalation joined together so a great image is that of like an ocean wave yes so the wave rises and then it crests and it fall since we're going to be here with this ocean grass for a couple beads practice just really being present with what is still in the body welcoming that inner calm I mean your natural state of peace that does exist with you we're giving ourselves this opportunity to practice doing absolutely nothing when your mind starts to wander you have the option of returning back to that ocean sound that ocean breath finding that connection of the inhale and the exhalation you also now have the mantra that you can repeat quietly to yourself I choose to let go continue to sit up nice and tall through the spine and if you find that it might be slightly valuable you can tap into a little inner smile here as you continue to breathe when you feel like you have a bit of a groove make sure you're not gripping or holding we'll continue to sit with ourselves with the support of one another and all the people practicing this meditation this video for two minutes here we go deep breath in unwrap out one more minute continue to explore the grass don't decide where it ends just as you do with your asana really lean into the breath practice the pranayama here let it guide you in word and slowly bat the eyelashes open and draw your hands to your heart squeeze the shoulders up to the ears that abyss hollows you can lift your heart and then exhale just allow the shoulders again to drape down the back body nice work my friends awesome work return to this video anytime you need a little chill a little calm a little Rescue Remedy back inside right we just proved that we could kind of change the chemical makeup of our body you may not feel a hundred percent better based on how you felt but hopefully you feel a little bit calmer a little more connected to what matters most right thank you so much for sharing your time your energy share this video with your friends so that we can all continue to explore this idea of self transformation and self-love so that then we can share that with the world thanks again take good care namaste you

    Today I used this meditation as the background to my yoga. Adriene's wonderful guided practices haven't been what feels best the last few days and I wanted to really listen to my mind and body today. This was a really wonderful compromise for me between having Adriene's calming influence and having the freedom to really find what felt good. I wondered if we could have a video with some gentle background music and words of encouragement designed to keep us company in free form yoga sessions? (Unless there already is one in Adriene's extensive collection?)

    Hi Adrienne, I've been following your channel for a short time and been practicing yoga with your videos. I love the guided meditation video and hope you'll entertain doing more in the future.

    Also, can you recommend any of your videos where it's mostly sitting or laying down? I'm on restriction right now because of an operation and can't exert pressure on my arm right now. Thank you!

    This is the first time I've seen any of your videos and I am kicking myself for it. Corinne Leigh of ThreadBangers mentioned you and I tried this out after an awful day. Thank you. Will be watching and following MANY more of your videos.

    Forgive me for taking so long to get here. Bless you, sweet angel Adrienne, and your adorable doggo.

    The mantra "I choose to let go." Has been so powerful for me. I suffer from anxiety and depression and there have been countless times that your videos have been there waiting for me to reach out. Thank you for the peace and comfort and gentleness you extend to the world.

    Thank you. I have been working through my PTSD and wanted something short today before work. As I started picturing my breath as ocean waves rising and crashing, I cried. I can't be sure why sometimes these feelings come up, but I think it was because I could picture those beautiful, calming waves. In my recovery, I can see how this illness robs you of imagination–you have no ability to problem-solve, no ability to imagine anything being different. I've struggled to even be able to do yoga because I could not understand the concept that it might help over time or in ways I don't know yet–but with time and practice, this is changing and improving as I heal. I love your channel because I can do it when I want, however I want, from the comfort of my home. <3

    I've just sent a kiss to you as you said goodbye, seriously, it just came out of that peaceful at the end of the practice. Wonderful it was! And thank you for being open and honest, I absolutely LOVE the way you talk, the words you say, the message you share …you are on a true mission and I think the virtual kiss was for that also ๐Ÿ™Namaste

    I was feeling some unshakeable anger over petty problems and I felt like you were speaking right to me. By the end of the video I found myself realizing how small these problems were and about how much I have to be grateful for. I never fail to be amazed by how much a few moments of breathing and mindfulness soothes the soul

    I've tried Headspace and other meditation apps, but none of them is as good your calming voice and guidance.
