Yoga with Adriene practices for every mood

2018 taught me more about my own personal Yoga journey than I ever expected or anticipated. I’ve been an avid lover of Yoga for the last year and a half (ish) and it’s something that I’ve spoken about on this blog on a number of occasions. Last year, I went to a Yoga retreat for the first time – which was a huge step out of my comfort zone but ultimately, I learnt a bloody lot from that experience and I’ve learned more and more about what works for me, what doesn’t and what I can quite frankly kiss goodbye to in terms of Yoga and it’s teachings.

The thing I love about Yoga is that it’s so versatile and not every type of Yoga will suit everyone and we don’t all need or want the same things out of it. I use Yoga With Adriene on a regular basis and she’s the only teacher I use because I jive with her attitude and everything she says sits well with me.

I did a post last year about Yoga With Adriene practices I’d recommend but today I wanted to share a larger number of her practices in easy to follow categories so depending on your mood, you know where to go. On all of my Yoga related posts, I always have someone commenting saying that they’d love to do Yoga but don’t know where to start.

But even with a solid recommendation like Yoga With Adriene, she has hundreds and hundreds of videos to choose from, so understandably, it can be a bit daunting. I’ve worked my way through a fair amount of her videos, so I’ve grouped them together depending on how you’re feeling and your mood! I hope this helps!

If you’re a complete beginner when it comes to Yoga, it’s so important to go at your own pace and find what works for you. I started with the very basics, the Yoga for beginners practices and anything with the word “gentle” in the title and gradually worked my way up from there.

But even now, a year and a half later, there’s always days where the thought of doing anything strenuous seems like the worst thing in the world and I’ll opt for a slower, gentle practices instead. I find it serves me much more than just pushing through a difficult practice that I don’t really want to be doing.

Of course I’m not a medical professional or a qualified Yoga teacher either, so although these are my recommendations, if you have any health concerns before starting Yoga or during, always see your doc!

If you have any other questions regarding any Yoga with Adriene practices, I’m happy to answer them the best I can! Do you do Yoga? What type of Yoga do you enjoy? Anything you’d recommend?

  1. I’ve never really tried yoga before, but I’m thinking that I will do sometime this year! One of my personal fitness goals is to be flexible again, and I think after I’ve hit a flexibility milestone that I’m proud of, I’ll have to give yoga a go xx

  2. I never knew there were so many types of Yoga! I have always envisioned it as stretching and bending in tonnes of almost impossible ways. I would love to give it a try one day… though my house is small, so maybe that one day won’t be just yet, haha!

    I am so glad that you are having fun with it!

  3. I’ve tried Yoga a couple of times but I can’t seem to find a class that suits me. They always mix up abilities and I feel like I can’t mix with them so seeing that link to beginner videos is great! I really want to try again to help with my Fibromyalgia!

  4. this is such a helpful post, i absolutely adore the yoga with adriene. the video for hips and lower back release is one of my personal favorites. i’ve been very much slacking on my yoga practices and I can totally feel it in my hips. this post actually really makes me want to work through some of the videos you suggested because while i’ve done a good bit of them I haven’t done them all. i’ll have to save this post to come back too so i can find the perfect video for what i’m feeling. x

  5. I like to rotate between doing my own sequence and practicing with Adriene. Her Yoga for Sciatica was great for when I injured my back but was ready to start moving again. She really has such a versatile library of videos!

  6. This is a really helpful and useful post, Jenny! One of my resolutions or ‘goals’ this year was to make more time for yoga – predominantly classes – but this would be a great place to start as I’m a total yoga newbie. Love how you’ve sectioned off appropriate methods for various moods and situations!

  7. I love the subcategories you used to divide this one up, it’s really helpful! I’ve always wanted to be a yoga girl but I’ve never quite found a style that suits me I tried a class once but it was very very slow, more meditative, and didn’t really feel like a workout. Maybe I should try some at home ones from the make you sweat category and see if I find that more enjoyable x

  8. I love how you’ve gone out of your way to categorise everything because you’re right, if I saw that massive list I would not have any idea where to start! I love the section for stress because I stress a hell of a lot so it’ll come in handy!

  9. I used to do Yoga pretty much every day while I was at uni, but it’s something that I fell out of the routine of when I had to enter the big wide world! I definitely want to get back into it though, is there anything you’d recommend for someone who wants to ease back into it? Also, I think it’s so awesome that you went to a yoga retreat, the idea of that has always really appealed to me, maybe that’s my way of getting back into it this year?! 😁

    1. Any of the slow / stretchy / beginner practices would be perfect. She also had a practice called “Yoga for Beginners Mind” which might be a good place to start too 😌 I personally found the retreat too spiritually intense so if you haven’t done yoga in ages I probably wouldn’t recommend!

  10. I’m definitely someone who doesn’t know where to start. I’ve never quite worked out if I want to start or not but just reading the titles of these makes that a definite yes. Great post!

  11. Yay! Love Yoga with Adriene! I’m doing the January 30 day challenge for this year 🙂 I try every year and this time I’m determined to get to get to the end!

  12. This is great – thanks for sharing! I love how you separated them into categories! I’m not a huge yoga person, but I might just have to try some of these out.

  13. I am one of those people who tried yoga once, laughed, and was asked to leave the class so never went back! I am trying to up my fitness and wellbeing this year so I might take a look at the gentle videos (about all I’m capable of atm, haha). Seriously though, Jenny, this is such a helpful round up, there’s something for everyone here, thank you for curating this. Also, I recognise that White Pumpkin candle! xx

    1. That’s the beauty of home practice, you can laugh, fart, roll around and nobody can tell you to leave 😌 You take what you want from these practices but the main thing is to just have fun and find what feels good so I hope you find some you enjoy!

  14. This is such a helpful post Jenny! I love how you have grouped the videos into sections depending on mood. I always find each day my energy levels are different, but lately I’ve been wanting to do the more chilled, relaxing practices, cozy yoga is one of my faves. I’m going to go through the lower energy list and see if there are any I haven’t done yet. Thanks for sharing, great post! ❤ xxx

  15. I love Yoga with Adriene! I wacthed her videos a lot when I was first starting yoga and didn’t know what I was doing. I haven’t practiced in a while, but I use some yoga moves to stretch after work outs. Thanks for posting. I will have to save this whenever I’m in the yoga mood!

  16. I have watch Yoga with Audreine for a few year on and off and really love doing yoga when I’m a little stressed, just need to make some more time for it. Thank you for putting all the videos together makes it a lot easier! Xx

  17. Jenny, you have absolutely no idea how much of a lifesaver this blog post is! I have tried out Yoga with Adriene’s practices on and off for a few years now, usually to help me go to sleep at night after a busy day, but sometimes it is really hard to remember which practices are most suitable for certain mood! There’s nothing worse than trying to chill out and then being asked to plank for a minute by the video haha! I’ve bookmarked this post for later use, there are some under your lower energy practices heading that I’ve yet to try out, so I’ll definitely be doing that this evening!

  18. I’ve been looking for something exactly like this list!! Thank you so much for posting this! It’s exactly what I needed to get back into practicing yoga.

  19. Thanks so much for this, that’s really helpful! I really enjoy yoga but I struggle to keep it up . I prefer to go to a class if I can, but if not, then Yoga with Adriene is my go to (although I don’t have much space at home so it can be tricky! One of the reasons I like to go to a class!). But as you say there are loads of practices on there, so this is really helpful to narrow it down a bit to what might suit me. I also agree that every practice is different, so tailoring your practice to how you feel is important. I do want to try to do more at home between the classes, so I’m going to try out some of the practices you’ve listed above. Thanks again 🙂

  20. This is such a wonderful resource! I used to practice yoga regularly until I moved to London and away from my teacher, and I’ve wanted to get back into it without having to subject myself to London yoga people. I’ll definitely be working my way through this list, and I’m sticking on the yoga for lower back pain as soon as I get home!

  21. I absolutely love her…I did her 30 day challenge last year but also any time I am doing yoga…I just pull up one of her videos…there are some for you even when you have no time…like her videos lasting 5 or 10 mins. 🙏Great post

  22. Yoga is something I have always regretted not doing when I was able to. I don’t think there is anything I can do now being confined to bed and with very little movement. Unless there is some kind of bed yoga! lol This is a fantastic post though and I am sure will help people loads! 😀
