10 Yoga With Adriene practices I’d recommend

If I have a chance to talk about Yoga, I will. People I know who don’t care about Yoga are probably sick to death of me talking about it but hey, guess what? I’m not going to stop. In fact, I’m one click away from booking myself into a Yoga retreat in November so that’ll give me another excuse to talk about it even more! Wheyy! Anyway, Yoga is a big part of my life. I practice it every single day (unless I really can’t like being ill or on holiday) and over the last year or so, it really has changed my life. 

I’ve found a form of exercise I love, which after years of anxiety disorder and not doing any exercise, was really important. It gives me freedom, it’s fun and it feels good. What more could you want? Another main pro of Yoga for me is that it can be free. I’ve never been to a Yoga class in my life and my Yoga journey started out with some DVD’s I bought from Amazon. These were good but not really for me. Then I found Yoga With Adriene on YouTube – after searching for videos to help some back pain.

I’ve been using Yoga With Adriene ever since – the amount of videos she has for literally every type of practice you could possibly want is out of this world. Back pain? Got it. Core work out? Got it. Meditation? Got it. And I don’t have to pay a single penny in order to do it. I know a lot of people are interested in Yoga but simply don’t know where to start with it and that’s okay, it can be difficult to understand. So I’ve put together a list of my top 10 favourite Yoga With Adriene practices and a brief explanation as to what they focus on, to hopefully help you get started! (In no particular order)

1. TRUE – Soften 

This is my go-to practice whenever I’m not feeling 100%. When I want to get a little bit of Yoga and movement in but I can’t commit to a longer or more vigorous practice. Soften is a lovely, swift practice which feels amazing.

2. Movement Medicine – Energy

Another good one for someone who perhaps doesn’t have a whole bunch of time or wants to get a quick work out in. Energy is a great practice which will certainly get you sweating but give you that burst you need.

3. Yoga for Hips and Lower Back

As someone who always has lower back and hip pain, this practice is perfect for me. It’s a stretchy practice with some nice hip openers and feels amazing if you’re tight around the hip area.

4. Yoga for Relaxation

This one will not get you sweaty at all and it really does do what it says on the tin. Perfect for if you’re feeling a bit stressed and frantic and need to chill for half an hour.

5. Meditation for Inner Peace 

I love this meditation practice and as someone who struggles to zone out, it really helps me just focus on my breath for the 11 minutes it runs for. For anyone, like me, who’s frantically rushing around all the time, give this a try.

6. Peaceful Warrior Yoga

The Peaceful Warrior pose is one of my favourite poses and this practice can be really empowering. It’s a lovely flowy practice which doesn’t get you too hot and sweaty but definitely gets you moving.

7. Total Body Yoga – Deep Stretch

This is a good practice to slot in if you’ve done a lot of high intensity flow practices because it focuses entirely on stretching and you get some really deep stretches throughout this one that feel amazing. It’s quite long but it’s worth it.

8. Let It Go Yoga Flow

This one really is good for… you guessed it… letting it go! If you’re a bit worked up about something or stressed then this is a great practice to do. It certainly gets the heart rate up but there’s some great moves in here which require a lot of attention. Perfect for if you need to get something off your mind.

9. Yoga for Beginners – A Little Goes a Long Way

This is the practice I started with (after the back pain one) when I first discovered Yoga With Adriene and was a complete beginner. If you’re a beginner, have done no Yoga before and want to start easy and low to the ground, this is a perfect practice for that.

10. TRUE – Be You

Although I said these are no particular order but the Be You practice from Yoga With Adriene’s ‘TRUE – 30 Day Yoga Journey’ series is definitely my favourite. One of the only videos where the mic comes off and you’re doing your practice to gorgeous, soothing music instead. This practice is great for when you’ve got your foundations sorted and are a little more experienced.

Of course I haven’t worked my way through all of her videos yet but these are 10 that really stand out for me and ones I’d recommend to other people for a whole bunch of reasons. I hope you found this post helpful! If you try any of these, let me know how you get on!

  1. Yoga With Adriene is amazing. I love how she’s so down to earth and often makes fun of herself during practises. A little lightness while you’re struggling through a pose. 😀

    1. Haha absolutely! I totally agree xxx

  2. I wish Adrienne was my friend, love her!

    I love Yoga with Adrienne. I never knew she did so many videos, but I’ve tried her 30 days of Yoga videos in the past (never completed all 30 mind). My friends love her videos and we’re always trying to do the crow!

    1. I can’t do the crow! I have sensitive wrists so it’s so difficult for me! One day xxx

  4. Lex says:

    I’ve never heard of this, but now I’m definitely going to try out her videos! I’ve been interested in doing yoga but honestly had no idea where to go or how to go about doing it. Thanks for sharing! I’ll definitely be trying this out!

    Nancy ♥ exquisitely.me

    1. She has some great Yoga for Beginners practices too 🙂 xxx

  8. I’m so sure it was you I was speaking to on twitter about Adriene’s practices but they’re so fantastic. Yoga is such a great way to feel amazing in the shortest space of time. As much as I love a gym workout, I feel yoga practice equally enjoyable and often relaxes me like nothing else can! I’m going to give all these videos a try, thanks for the suggestions!

    1. It probably was, I talk about her all the time 😂 xxx

  9. Love this post Jenny! I’ve done most of these and think they are great, especially Peaceful Warrior and the Meditation for Inner Peace. My faves at the moment are Yoga Wash, Stress Melt and Connection. I love that there is a yoga for every mood and occasion. Great post lovely, I hope it encourages more people to try Yoga With Adriene 💖😘 xx

    Thank you for sharing. Yoga definitely makes a huge difference for our minds and bodies x

    Soffy // themumaffairs.blogspot.com

    1. Definitely does xxx

  12. I’ve never tried yoga before! If I’m honest, I’ve always been quite confused about what it actually is – stretching? Exercise? Meditation? But it seems a combination of all three! I’ll have to give this a go!

    Meg x | the-writeblog.blogspot.co.uk

    1. It’s everything, you make it what you want. There’s high intensity practices for weight loss, stretch exercises, specific stretches for pains (e.g back pain), meditation, flexibility practices. Literally everything xxx

  13. Alys George says:

    I tried yoga once, and it didn’t go well unfortunately, my back actually felt worse than before I went :/

    Would love to try a different form of it though, as it may have just been one part of it that didn’t quite work for me.

    Alys / alysgeorge.blogspot.co.uk

    1. It’s likely you did the wrong type of stretches if you had some back pain anyway you need to be SO careful xxx

  14. Ohh I’m forwarding this on to my sister to see if she’s heard of this! She’s a huge yoga fan too, she does yoga everyday including ‘fly yoga’ and ‘aerial yoga’ and actually plans to learn to be a yoga teacher so you’d both get on very well!

    1. Thank you xxx

  19. I need to start watching her yoga videos again x

    1. Would definitely recommend xx

  20. I haven’t had a chance to do yoga recently but I might give these videos a look. Thank you

    1. I’d highly recommend them xxx

  21. I love these videos!!

    1. Great news 🙂 xx

  22. I’ve never tried yoga and I suffer from back pain too. ☹️ thanks for the recommendations, will try one or two thia weekend ❤️

    1. You’ll definitely benefit from some Yoga stretches! xxx

  23. I love it! For years, I’ve tried to get into yoga – via DVDs – but it didn’t stick. This year, though, I needed a workout during Ramadan that would help me stay limber but not expend precious energy. When I found Yoga with Adriene … wow. It was amazing. I’ve been working my way through the TRUE series so far! And my body feels absolutely amazing. Better yet, I had my first proper yoga class, and never felt so empowered and strong afterward! Thanks for sharing these!!!

    1. That’s great news, I loved the TRUE series as well xxx

  24. I really want to get into a yoga practice eventually. When I finally feel like my schedule has been completely ironed out I will definitely consider how to add it to my routine.

    1. You just need to go for it and do a little bit here and there, it doesn’t have to take up much time xxx

  25. Yoga is a friend to the mind and body. Enjoy and talk about it all you like. Cheers Jenny

    1. Lovely quote 🙂 xxx
