    I'm new to yoga but really enjoyed this video.  I was advised to add it to my exercise routine because I run several miles a day about 4 days a week and have been having a lot of knee and foot pain due to running on pavement.  I hope this helps.  Thank you Adriene for all the awesome videos!  You are a rockstar!!

    I am brand spanking new to yoga! Have done zero classes. I think I'll start with your 30 day challenge first, I know I can't Do 40min to start. But I love your teaching and your soothing voice....starting 30 day tomorrow. I'll work up to this video ????

    Is it weird that I just found these videos and instead of doing one, I ended up doing 2 I just didn't want to stop. I thought I was in good shape from hiking, weights and weighted hula hooping, but my legs are saying otherwise.

    this workout just killed my knees! is it normal for a "beginner" workout like this to be so harsh on bad knees?

    Even with the blanket, this was too much for my knees. Great video though--will try again when I feel stronger on my knees after more standing poses that don't require such hard compression on the knees.

    What type of yoga is this? Is it Vinyasa? I ask because after doing your video everyday of my holiday in Tenerife I am now looking for a yoga retreat for my next holiday, that will provide me with a similar experience. Thank you for your video, I absolutely love it! xoxo

    I wanted to start yoga to improve my flexibility and built a bit of endurance, and I love your videos! However some of the poses are difficult for people with a bigger bust or body in general... I struggled especially with the runner's lunge, could you suggest some modifications?

    Hi Adriene, I love your yoga lessons and I am a big fan I just wish that you'd do it a little bit more slow so that I could have more time to enjoy it and really let go of everything not just move on to the the next posture... You're beautiful and I love your work, thank you for everything and you're also very funny ? lots of love, namaste.

    My wrists and toes feel like they are going to break every time I do cat/cow or poses like that. Am I doing something wrong? These feel like I am straining and not strengthening.

    I tried yoga last week but the instrutor was too stressful so I decided to search for classes on youtube.<br />I just did this begginers' class and in the middle of it I started crying. I think it was on the child pose. I don't know why, nothing sad happened to me or anything during the past years but I think it was stress being released. I suffer from generalized anxiety, last year I even had a seizure and ended up on the ER. I've been a lot better now with medication and exercise, but never tried yoga. <br />I just ended this class and I am so surprised! I don't feel the usual stiffness on my shoulders anymore. To be honest I am surprised with how light my body and mind feels after only 40 minutes of yoga. I will keep doing these online classes and even look for a new instrutor. Thank you.

    I'm so glad you exist and decided to make these videos !! I've struggled with exercise and anxiety for a long time. I don't know anything about yoga or you; I've only been doing it two days, but I can honestly say I feel amazing!! :D

    So I don't know how to say this without being crude but when I'm in a lunge position with my fingertips to the ground, it's hard for me to stay on either side of my leg, because I have a big chest. So I modify it by putting the leg to the outside of the arms which allows for more stability through my fingers. Is this a proper way to modify it?

    I never did Yoga in my life before, so this video helped me accomplish perform Yoga for the first time in my life and I loved it. 40-minutes went by so quickly and I feel calm and more relaxed. I also hope by the will & power of God, give me the ability to heal from illnesses. Thank you, Adriene.

    I've recently got back into doing homework out and wanted something to do that's relaxing on my rest day. Your video popped up and it was fantastic! Been wanting to try yoga for so long and I'm so glad I finally got round to it :)

    HI I've been away awhile... I got a bit lazy and slacked off my daily practice, but living on a farm out of the city, it's really wonderful to access your site to get back into regular yoga in an accessible friendly way - love your style and your quirky humor too.. Thank you ... wishing you all success !! (Cape Town South Africa)

    Adriene... I hadn't done yoga in a while and was a bit bored of my latest instructor so I looked on youtube to see if i could find a good basic lesson. You were the first that popped up so I figured I would give yours a try! I have to say, thanks a lot, it was great! Such a well spoken instructor and not to mention you are FUNNY as hell!!!
