Meditation For Inner Peace – Yoga With Adriene

– Hello friends near and farand 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 gonna take a
moment to go inward,to connect with
what matters most. We’re gonna use the
breath to soothe your soul,find that inner
calm and of course,to find what feels good. Let’s balance it out,
hope into something comfyand let’s get started. Alright my sweet friends,let’s begin in a
nice comfortable seat. Sukhasana with the legs crossed. Try to sit up nice
and tall, best you can. And we’re just
gonna drop right in,so whatever you
have going on today,whatever happened
before this moment,whatever is going
to happen after this,we’re gonna really
just allow that to dissolveand we’re gonna do our bestfor this very short
time we have togetherto really just
tap into the breathand quality of
movement and essentiallyfind our chill. Going inward, just seeing
what that will do for usfor the rest of our day,but for now really
into this present moment. So in order to do
that I’m gonna invite youto close the eyes. And quietly repeat
this mantrato yourself. I choose to let go. I chooseto let go. Sit up nice and
tall and one more timerepeat this mantra
quietly to yourselfI choose to let go. And start to listen to
the sound of your breath. And start to relax
the shoulders down. Begin to imagine spacein between each vertebrae. And so the quality of
energy that runs up and downthe spine slowly
starts to change,even if just a little bit. And continue to notice
the sound of your breath. And with the eyes
closed we just check outwhat’s going on inside. Notice where you
might be holding or grippingin the shoulders. Maybe just let them
drape down the back body. Maybe you’re gripping
in the toes or the fingers. Maybe you soften. Maybe you’re
leaning a little forwardand you could
stand to tuck the chinand just lean back. Then after you’ve
taken a moment to noticewhat’s going on physically,just take a moment to
just very gently noticewhat’s going on emotionally
in the present moment. This is really a way of
just honoring and recognizingthe different kinds of
intelligence of the body. And please begin to
notice an audible breath. So this can be Ujjayi breathor just a breath you can hear,that you can really listen to. And with the eyes closed,
continue to listento the sound of your breathAnd see if you can
connect the moment that theinhalation and the
exhalation join together. So a great image is that
of like an ocean wave, yes. So the wave risesand then it crests and it falls. So we’re just gonna be
here with his ocean breathfor a couple beats. Practice just really
being present with what is. Still in the body. Welcoming that inner calm. Your natural state of
peace that does exist within. So we’re giving
ourselves this opportunityto practice doing
absolutely nothing. When your mind starts to
wander you have the optionof returning back
to that ocean sound,that ocean breath,
finding that connectionof the inhale
and the exhalation. You also now have the
mantra that you can repeatquietly 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 hereas 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 continueto sit with ourselveswith the support of one
another and all the peoplepracticing this
meditation, this videofor two minutes. Here we go, deep breath in,long breath out. One more minute. Continue to explore the breath. 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 inward. Then slowly bat
the eyelashes openand draw your
hands to your heart. Squeeze the
shoulders up to the ears,sit up as tall as you
can and lift your heart,then exhale, just
allow the shoulders againto drape down the back body. Nice work, my friends. Awesome work. Return to this video any
time you need a little chill,a little calm, a little rescueremedy back inside, right?We just proved that we can
kind of change the chemicalmakeup of our body. You may not feel 100%
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 friendsso that we can all
continue to explorethis idea of self transformationand self love so that then we
can share that with the world. Thanks again, take good care. Namaste.
