And you can start today!
This is not an affiliate of mine…though I would love for it to be and will be working on it this month. I’m never sure how non-sex-related companies and organizations will feel about having their brands shared on a sex blog like this.
Anyhow…the 30 Day Program starts today (she does a new one every January to challenge us to get back to the mat). Adriene is a great yoga instructor (and her dog is adorable – wandering around as he pleases in the background). It’s all very down-to-earth and made available for every level of yogi. No need to feel intimidated if you’ve never done yoga before.
This year’s January “jump start” 30 Day Program is called “Home,” which I love, because aren’t we all pretty much always on a journey home, within ourselves?
Here’s the welcome email I received, if you’re interested in joining in. The practices are each less than 30 minutes.
(You can buy a membership to her “Find What Feels Good” website so you can access all of her videos, but there are tons that you can access for free straight from her youtube channel. I find her to be one of the most personable yoga instructors on the internet.)
The hardest part is showing up.
I am sending along some simple information to support you and help you kick this thing off in a way that feels good.
The first video will upload on YouTube for Jan 1st.
This is a free day. A day to settle in, reset, organize, recover, whatever it is you need.
This video can be viewed in bed, on the couch, or on your mat. Your Day 0 video is an important one. I share some tips to support you on the journey. We close it by taking a moment to simply breathe and lean in. This is what it is all about. Some days you won’t have time, or energy… show up anyway. You can always just sit there and breathe. (Like Benji!)
Videos will upload on the Yoga With Adriene YouTube channel each day at 12am Central Texas time. (Yeehaw!)
I am aware that we have folks practicing in different time zones across the globe. After many years of experiment and consideration of time across the divide, we discovered that this the best time for many reasons. So I invite you to work with it and celebrate the incredible fact that you are practicing with so many awesome humans (and pets) all around the world.
Sign up and log in to the FWFG Kula to join this designated online room/hang out to track your progress and receive support and accountability. We usually have some good laughs too. Plus, it’s tradition now that I post at least one naked picture of Benji.
If you are healing from an injury or new to yoga – you can do this program. You will just need to modify, as will every single one of us at some point on the journey.
The practices in this program are absolutely suitable for pregnant women with the use of some mindful modifications. Avoid twists and core work and always ask your doctor for advice based on where you are in your pregnancy. I advise that when in doubt, you supplement your twists and core work with slow and loving breathing.

(This is my first “Lessons from the Mat” post of the year, and yes…it is a day early – I will normally post every other Thursday – but I didn’t want to hold out on you as you may want to start this program TODAY!)
