Meditation For Inner Peace – Yoga With Adriene


– Hello friends near and far and 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 comfy and let’s get started. (upbeat music) 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 dissolve and we’re gonna do our best for this very short
time we have together to really just
tap into the breath and quality of
movement and essentially find our chill. Going inward, just seeing
what that will do for us for the rest of our day, but for now really
into this present moment. So in order to do
that I’m gonna invite you to close the eyes. And quietly repeat
this mantra to yourself. I choose to let go. I choose to let go. Sit up nice and
tall and one more time repeat this mantra
quietly to yourself I choose to let go. And start to listen to
the sound of your breath. And start to relax
the shoulders down. Begin to imagine space in between each vertebrae. And so the quality of
energy that runs up and down the 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 out what’s going on inside. Notice where you
might be holding or gripping in 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 forward and you could
stand to tuck the chin and just lean back. Then after you’ve
taken a moment to notice what’s going on physically, just take a moment to
just very gently notice what’s going on emotionally
in the present moment. This is really a way of
just honoring and recognizing the different kinds of
intelligence of the body. And please begin to
notice an audible breath. So this can be Ujjayi breath or just a breath you can hear, that you can really listen to. (breathing) And with the eyes closed,
continue to listen to the sound of your breath And see if you can
connect the moment that the inhalation and the
exhalation join together. So a great image is that
of like an ocean wave, yes. So the wave rises and then it crests and it falls. So we’re just gonna be
here with his ocean breath for 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. (slow breathing) So we’re giving
ourselves this opportunity to practice doing
absolutely nothing. When your mind starts to
wander you have the option of returning back
to that ocean sound, that ocean breath,
finding that connection of the inhale
and the exhalation. You also now have the
mantra that you can repeat quietly 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 here as you continue to breathe. (slow breathing) When you feel like you
have a bit of a groove, make sure you’re
not gripping or holding. We’ll continue to sit with ourselves with the support of one
another and all the people practicing this
meditation, this video for two minutes. Here we go, deep breath in, long breath out. (deep breathing) 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. (deep breathing) Then slowly bat
the eyelashes open and 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 again to 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 rescue remedy back inside, right? We just proved that we can
kind of change the chemical makeup 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 friends so that we can all
continue to explore this idea of self transformation and self love so that then we
can share that with the world. Thanks again, take good care. Namaste. (upbeat music)

  2. Adriene thank you for this video! I did this before bed and it was so wonderful and calming for mentally letting go of everything that happened during the day. Love all your videos. Keep up the great work!

  3. Thank you for another beautiful video. I work as a humanitarian and your videos helps me (and my colleagues) come back to our inner peace and self-love when we need it most. We appreciate practicing with you (digitally). Namaste from Central Asia 🙏🏼

  4. Today I used this meditation as the background to my yoga. Adriene's wonderful guided practices haven't been what feels best the last few days and I wanted to really listen to my mind and body today. This was a really wonderful compromise for me between having Adriene's calming influence and having the freedom to really find what felt good. I wondered if we could have a video with some gentle background music and words of encouragement designed to keep us company in free form yoga sessions? (Unless there already is one in Adriene's extensive collection?)

  5. New to the meditation concept, but of the videos I have experienced, I have really enjoyed this one, great work, please keep it up!

  13. My experience of people who do this is that they are totally self absorbed. All their "inner peace" is totally selfish and self centered, it kills their empathy even for close family and supposed "friends".

I’ve lost two people who meant the world to me, found out I have a medical issue (thankfully in a very early stage that’s easy to treat), my blood pressure is rising, and work is stressful. Recently I’ve been having anxiety over a routine surgery (wisdom teeth extraction) due to my fear of needles and anesthesia. This helped me relax so much. I need to do this everyday. I’m also loving your Monstera Deliciousa! I have two of them plus three small cuttings I recently plants. Love them!
