Yoga Camp - Day 29

This is what Yoga Camp is all about! With Yoga Camp we ask - what is the point of a rigorous workout if you still are waking up in the morning and looking in the mirror and not loving what you see? What is the point of 50 chaturangas if you look in the mirror and don’t know who it is you see? Who cares if you have a rocking body if your mental wellness is a hot mess! Can we live a rich and beautiful life if we don’t love ourselves?

I am so incredibly inspired by your willingness to ask the big questions, do the work and tend to not just your physical fitness but your mental health as well. I believe this is a way to true self compassion. Enjoy your practice.

  1. Hi Adriene,

    I have joined your Yoga Camp this January and I really love it!

    I have been looking at other videos you have in YouTube for when the camp finishes and I liked the series for healing. I would like to know if you have any Yoga sessions for PMS, period cramps and fertility or if you are planning to do some.

    Many thanks for your work!

    1. I can't recall the name of the video but she does have a video for pms, I think it's called yoga for cramps or something along those lines. And I also think she has a prenatal yoga too with Chris' wife Hyla. Good luck!

  2. Hi my name is Rachel, live in south Wales, UK. I think you are absolutely fabulous! I'm on day 8 of yoga camp and I feel so different it's hard to explain. I am a woman who's mind travels faster than the speed of light and you manage to transport me somewhere so beautiful for approx 30 mins each day and I thank you from the bottom of my heart I have had a real tough time emotionally over the past 18 months and I truly have a lot to thank you for xxx yogi for life sending you the biggest cwtches ever namaste

  3. I cried for two minutes at the end of this session. I mean really cried like I haven't cried in years. It was very strange and completely unexpected. I had just professed aloud, "I love my life!" When something inside me said, "yes, you do!" In early November I was having mental health issues which had started to manifest themselves in my physical body. Many mornings I stood in the shower actually saying, "I hate my life." I started doing your yoga for stress relief, then I did 30 days of yoga from 2015, and I've been dedicated to this new Yoga Camp and haven't missed one. I truly feel I have gone from a very dark place into a place of happiness, satisfaction and gratitude. I see everything differently. I don't know what it is you do, Adriene, but it has resonated with me. Thank you.

  4. Adreine--

    I'm on day 25 and feeling in love with yoga. You are an amazing guide, very encouraging and open. I dig the mantras so much and many lessons come from the mat. Thanks a bundle!

  5. just realised its better to watch the video on your web site rather than on youtube. I am a bit behind on day 4 so i am glad i worked this out now as adverts for debt management or if Britain should leave the E.U. were a bit disturbing as i was trying to relax. İ think the best way would be to download the videos so i can put relaxing chants (i really like Ravi Shankar chants) or something just afterwards and build a playlist kind of thing.. thank you for the time...big smiley face inserted here ..

  6. Adriene,
    Thank you so much for all that you do! I did the 30 day challenge last year and it helped me establish a pattern of taking this wonderful time for myself. I was excited to do this again with Yoga Camp; the affirmations have been more powerful than I thought they would be.
    You approach is calm and respectful; I have had lots of surgeries and can't do a number of the poses as they are "supposed" to be done and I feel totally comfortable doing what feels good!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  7. Hey,

    I am new here and new to yoga and I apologize for the novel-length comment. I have been following these videos for a little while now and trying to do yoga and while some of the moves I find come with ease, there are certain moves that I feel like I can't even come close to doing right. I have lower back problems and I think my spine is a little misshaped.

    An example of a move that I feel impossible is rocking from a lunge onto the back heel and folding forward over the straightened leg. Or, sitting with legs stretched out and then reaching towards the toes and folding. Both of these positions I find myself not able to even sit without my lower back curving excessively, but I do my best to power through them regardless (I am not pain, just mild discomfort). I feel like it has to do with some muscles in my hips being extremely inflexible, along with my legs..

    Another good example is lying on the back and hugging my knees to my body. Half of my lower back is off the ground if I actually hug my knees to my back. So this makes doing the lower back video difficult, and seemingly useless.

    In any case, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestion for videos or exercises to target these areas that I am struggling with!

    Thanks in advance, and thank you Adriene for these awesome videos!!

  8. I love my life to this point, I love my life from this point.
    I love you Adriene for this beautiful & loving Yoga Camp!

  9. Thank you so much for a the effort to please everyone and to think of all levels when you do the asanas, you made me fall in love with yoga! You easy and fun approach makes anyone wants to do yoga and keep at it! Thank you! Xoxo

  10. Hi Adriene! Your Yoga videos really got to me. Just one question.. what't the difference between the "30 days of yoga" and the "30 days yoga camp"?
    Thanks so much!

  11. Thank you for your videos and dedication to all of us out here! I began with 30 Days of Yoga in April of 2015, when I could no longer afford going to the local studio due to a job layoff. I had been doing yoga 2-4 days a week for 2 years at the studio and was bitten by your FWFG mantra. I committed to 5 days a week. I'm 56, menopausal, have an apple shape and was fluctuating between 195 and 198 pounds. With regular yoga practice, dog walks of 1/2 mile, literally uphill, and handling our lawn care, I have dropped to 183. But the benefits are far more than that. Working in the yard used to be something I paid for for days afterward. Any out of the ordinary exercise led to muscles that really didn't like me! Regular Yoga practice has changed all that. My muscles talk, but don't scream anymore and I don't dread trying to get out of bed in the mornings to a cacophony of creaks and groans. They're gone! Between repeated cycles of 30 Days of Yoga and Yoga Camp, I am so much stronger, better balanced, have more stamina. Your videos are varied enough, the encouragement is just right. I'm still working on my core, but I'm making progress. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  12. Yes I love myself. I love myself and my 43 years young body. It is mine and it went through a lot.
    It let me down a lot. But since 2 months of your yoga videos my body started to lift me up again.
    I suffer frim occasional bursitis in my hip after a fall a year back. Tennis arm and general artritis. But since your yoga...I hardly take painkillers because the yoga helps...also I am mentally in a better place. Since 2012 I was on Ritalin. I quit 3 months ago (2016)...and I feel great! I allready was on the right track...but now I am there.
    I was that chubby pale kid in gym class at school people laughed at. I hated myself even in my 30's...now I love myself and am no longer the chubby insecure one but a proud 43 years young woman who can deal with tough situations and know what I am worth.
    Thank you for adding even more quality to my life. Your videos teach me a lot mentally...I really love what you do. Thank you ♡

  13. Hi Adriene!
    I've begin this year 2017 with your 31 days of Yoga program and last month I decided to keep going. I've had some ups and downs, with some days charged with tiredness but the seed was already growing since I still got on the mat (not for the 30 day Yoga camp but for some smaller and lighter 5/10 minutes practice - so proud of myself!!).
    Today, now that I feel so.... heavy in the heart this morning, I've quiet myself and settled down. I read your e-mail full of love and couldn't stop crying. It's like a part of me has FINALLY recognized this deep urge for love, for self-love.
    So thank you, again and again and again!
    I dive into self-love but I send you as big part as well, to you and the community 🙂

  14. I love Yoga Camp!

    Without realizing it at first, these mantras have crept into my daily life and have made subtle but impactful changes, shifting my mindset and outlook into a more positive and productive place. Thank you.

    Also really feeling ma glutes working for the first time in a long time!

  15. This is my first session in days, after a rotten cold, and I really needed it. But It was quite frustrating not to be able to follow the breathing correctly so perhaps I started again too soon (my cold is still with me!). I just really needed to stretch a little - but I’m afraid I didn’t manage much beyond the basics, hence the frustration. I have to say, Yoga Camp has been much tougher than 30 Days of Yoga for me - and it’s taken far longer than 30 Days this time - so I’m really looking forward to moving into 2018 with TRUE. I’m all signed up and ready to go, so thanks Adriene, as always. And thanks for calling us all yogis - that makes me feel really good! Namaste and Happy New Year x
