Whether or not you celebrate Thanksgiving and whether or not it is Thanksgiving, here are a few yoga videos that you may want to follow as you incorporate Gratitude and Appreciation in your practice — both on and outside the mat. It also comes quite handy as we go through these most intense chaotic times!!! 😉
These are easy yoga asana practices (less than 40 minutes each) that I assure you will leave you relaxed and calm — with a glow and a smile on your face and a grateful heart! Enjoy!!! 🙂 ❤
(1) I AM Grateful by Adriene from Adriene’s Yoga Camp
“Yoga Camp Day 27! With just a few more days of Yoga Camp, it’s time to approach the simple and challenging moments with gratitude today. Mind and body work together here as we work to both strengthen and soften. Strong foundations today along with opportunity to cultivate heat, mindfully. Practice Yoga Camp vinyasa flow and stimulate and stretch from head to toe. Yoga’s healing attributes are available if you approach with ease and gratitude. Meet your edge. Unlock with Gratitude. Trust. Enjoy!”
(2) Yoga For Gratitude by Adriene
“Yoga For Gratitude is here! A sweet and calming gratitude practice for all! Take some time to connect to your breath and move your body. Moving meditation. Create space and give thanks. Love your spine and back body, tap into your core – work into the hips and link it all with your breath. This yoga practice is great for the whole body – physical and emotional. Light a candle, roll out the mat and connect to gratitude. Trust. This 35 min practice could be a game changer. ENJOY!”
(3) Grounding Into Gratitude – Root Chakra Yoga by Yoga With Adriene
“This yoga practice guides you through a series of poses to balance the root chakra and cultivate grounding with gratitude. When the root chakra, or Muladhara, is out of balance a person can feel anxious, uneasy, fearful, worried and stressed. This can lead to low energy and low immunity and an overall sense of instability. Use the tools of yoga to strengthen and balance to the root chakra, the foundation of all the other chakras. Cultivate self -love, stability, and sense of security. You are worthy and deserving. Remind yourself, you are awesome, and you are supported!”
I looooove Yin Yoga!!! ❤ In recent years, I’ve practiced it much more often than the Yang version. And it sure has helped keep me much saner and my nerves much calmer! 🙂
The next video isn’t specifically aimed at cultivating gratitude. However, when there are blockages in our heart center, it becomes quite a challenge for us to be grateful for and appreciative of the blessings in our daily life — and especially more so the blessings in disguise. It can be much easier and almost automatic for us to moan and complain. To be pessimistic and feel hopeless. Opening and balancing the heart chakra and releasing the blocks in our heart and lung meridians help the energies of Love, Gratitude, Thankfulness & Appreciation to flow much more smoothly and spontaneously.
