Take 5 Yoga Break! | Yoga Quickies | Yoga With Adriene

– Hi everyone.
Welcome to Yoga With Adriene. I’m Adriene and this is Benji
and today we have Take 5 Yoga. This is a perfect yoga break
for when you don’t have a lot of time but you need a
little somethin’ somethin’. So hop into something
comfy and let’s get started. (upbeat music) Alright pals, let’s begin
on all fours today. Jumpin’ right into it. Spread your hands super wide
as you come down to the ground. Give the earth a
little high five. Really feeling that
stretch in the palms. Knees underneath the hip points. Starting with Cat-Cow. Inhale, drop the belly,
open your chest. Take a big ol’ breath in. And then as you exhale,
round through, claw into your fingertips, lift
your heart space up to the sky. Inhale, drop the belly,
open your heart. Take the biggest breath
you’ve taken all day here. And then exhale, really
press away from the earth. Keep your
knuckles grounding down as you arch the
back draw your navel up. One more, inhale, drop
the belly, open the chest. Exhale, round through,
chin to chest. Awesome.
On your next inhale you’re gonna
kick the right foot out and reach the left
fingertips forward. Take the deepest breath. And then exhale, round
through, just like in Cat Pose. Bringing the elbow in,
the knee in, rounding through the spine. Good, inhale to extend. Exhale, Tabletop Position. Here we go.
Dropping the belly, this time kicking
the left toes out and reaching the
right fingertips forward. Inhale, fill up. Exhale, round through. Press your left
palm into the earth. Lift your heart
space up towards the sky. Good, inhale. Spread the fingers,
spread the toes, reach it out. Exhale, Tabletop Position. Beautiful. Walk the
hands out just a bit. Upper arm bones rotate out. So elbow creases, biceps, toward
the front of your yoga mat. Then curl the toes under. Feel that stretch
already through the foot. Take a deep
breath in and here we go, keep your knees bent as you
lift the hip creases up high, Downward Facing Dog. Take a deep breath in here. And use your exhale
to melt your heart back. Shake the head
a little yes, a little no. Great, then bend the knees. Inhale to look forward and exhale to make
your way to the top. Feet hip width
apart or flush together. Take an inhale to halfway lift. Find length in the spine. And then use your exhale
to, soft bend in the knees, Forward Fold.
Let everything go. Great, then send your hips back. Bend your knees generously. Bring your belly to the
top of the thighs and slowly, when you’re ready, roll up. Tucking the chin. Standing up nice and tall,
Mountain Pose. Right away, inhale. Spread your fingertips
and as you breathe in, reach for the sky. Exhale, rain it down,
Forward Fold. Inhale, halfway lift. Find length in the neck. Exhale to soften and bow. You’re gonna step or you
can hop it back to plank. Strong and steady. Beautiful, now turn on to the
outer edge of your right foot, the inner arch
of your left foot. You’re gonna press away from
your yoga mat and reach your left fingertips all
the way up towards the sky. Lift your right hip
all the way up, up, up. Take one more breath. Good, then exhale,
come back through center. Plank Pose and then
take it to the other side. Big inhale to press
away from the earth. Reach your right fingertips up. Then lift your left hip
crease up towards the sky. And then bring it all
the way back down to Plank. Beautiful. Inhale to look forward,
shift forward. Exhale to the belly. Inhale, Cobra.
Keep it soft. Exhale to release. Curl the toes under. Press back up to
Plank or all fours. Then send it back
to Downward Facing Dog. Beautiful, bend your knees. Inhale to look forward. Exhale to make
your way to the top. Inhale with your breath,
lift up halfway. Follow your breath. Exhale to soften and fold. Beautiful.
Inhale, roll it up. Nice and slow,
stacking up through the spine. When you’re ready
take your fingertips, stretch them all the
way up towards the sky. And then on an exhale,
soft bend in the knees, send your right
fingertips forward and your left fingertips back. Breathe. Grounding through the feet. And then here we go,
big inhale to reach for the sky. And exhale, send your
right fingertips back, left fingertips forward. Twisting through the spine. Beautiful then inhale,
last big stretch here. Send your fingertips up. You’re gonna slowly
lift up from your center. Lift your heels up. Finding your balance here. Relaxing the shoulders down. Hug the low ribs in. We’re here for three, two, and on the one
slowly lower your feet. Bring your hands to your heart. Inhale lots of love in. And exhale lots of love out. Nice work everyone.
Have an amazing rest of the day. I’ll see you next time. Namaste. (bright music)

    Lately I’ve been remembering how important it is to give my mind a break and prioritize listening and responding to my body… and my heart.
    And the real magic is, it doesn't take much.
    Just take five.

  • Kardayah's Soul says:

    Shalowm, I'm looking to start yoga. You have helped me a lot. I am just trying to stir clear of kundalini yoga. For right now anyway. Is your channel a safe place to start? I look forward to hearing from you. Todah rabah.

  • Krystyna Dawson says:

    I love your videos! It is wonderful to have an at home yoga practice. Please can you make a yoga for pregnancy at some point? I am 7 months pregnant and I am having to adapt a few moves in your videos to accommodate baby. Many thanks x

  • Silly question: I want to go to my very first yoga class tomorrow… "Bring your own mat or blanket". I only have one of those thick mats like you do sit-ups on. Will that be ok to take?

  • Got too into doing chores (konmari anyone?) and have to get ready for work, this was perfect to sneak in! Thank Adrienne! 😊

  • Claddie4Life says:

    Hi Adriene! I love you and your videos so much! You are so kind and down-to-earth, and your positive vibe just helps me feel comfortable and not intimidated by the moves, even if they're challenging for me. Thank you for the thought and heart you put into these videos. So, a couple months or so ago my wrist started really hurting. I went to the doctor after a while, and apparently I have De Quervain's tenosynovitis in my wrist. I'm not able to do poses like downward dog and planks anymore without quite a bit of pain, so I'm really only able to do hands-free practices. I've been doing the practices on your Hands-Free Yoga playlist, and they're amazing. I just did the yoga for hands, fingers, and wrists practice, and my wrist is actually feeling pretty good. I try to ice my wrist at least once every day and I sleep with a brace at night, but it still really hurts. I play violin, and even though it doesn't necessarily hurt while I'm playing, it may still aggravate it. I just don't know if I can take a break from violin right now because auditions are coming up, and I really want to advance in the symphony I'm in. Sorry, this is off topic, but I guess the point of my comment is: when you have a chance, could you maybe do some more hands-free practices, or if there are already more ones that aren't on the playlist, to just let me know? Thank you for your compassionate guidance. I love doing yoga with you. 🙂

  • Oh my goodness – you were not kidding – 5mins – but everything stretched and mind calm! #yeaopen day 5 on day 10 –
    I skipped this somehow- not sure how….

  • I found a really lovely song via Amazon music. “Family and Genus” by shakey graves. And then the next song came on- I got so confused. I had to look at my phone to see if somehow I had switched on YouTube to one of your videos. Nope, just your intro song playing!

  • Michelle Kennedy Hawkins says:

    Thanks for this video! I can fit it in my morning routine, yay! I would live to have a whole series of these 5 minute yog videos.❤❤❤

  • This is my first time doing any type of yoga. I never took it serious, but it does take away a type of stress that has lingered for a long time. Thank you

  • Annie Pilates Physical Therapist says:

    Another great yoga to start my day! Thanks Adriene for sharing, it inspires me to share my Pilates based physical therapy to great lengths https://youtu.be/IekiEFd8CDA

  • Hi Adrienne!
    I love your videos and I’ve been practicing yoga at home for about a year now. The only thing where I have some difficulty with is what is the best food to eat when it comes to yoga.
    I don’t know if this is the right way to make a request but I’m really hoping and wishing for a video where you could tell us a little bit more about the yogis diet.
    Lots of love from the Netherlands and Norway!

  • Daphne Troost says:

    Opted for this quick practice on this Monday morning. It was a great workout for me arms and core nevertheless!
    Thanks Adriene, namasté <3

  • Patrina Rutherford says:

    I am so happy I found this routine this morning. It is perfect for easing myself back into a fitness routine after a year of not being able to workout. THANK YOU Adriene!

  • Olivia Vincent! says:

    Love you Adrienne! As a massage therapist, I have sent many of my clients to your page to find balance and healing between our sessions. Thank you for all you do for so many!

  • Five Star Corgi Butts says:

    This video is magical. It's a quick five-minute yoga break that ALWAYS feels like ten minutes to me. I use it every time I'm having trouble transitioning into a productive, energetic mindset.

  • I loved this so much! For me it's really important to get a little bit of mindfulness/yoga everyday but some days it can be so hard to get some yoga in. Although the pose was short and modified, this is the first time in a long time I've been able to do a side plank and I'd never done it with an extended arm (on the bottom)!

  • Shushi Mushi says:

    Your voice and approach are so relaxing 🙂 Just found your channel and the past few days I'm practicing what I've learned from you and I feel amazing physically and emotionally. I had verteboplasty 7months ago(surgery on L1) and I'm not sure what is ok for my spine, every doctor is telling me something different. But I believe my body and is telling me to go on. Thanks for the great videos. Much love from Bulgaria, beautiful Adriene <3

  • Wow nice workout! Next time I do this I have to move some furniture to have enough space :p I will save this workout 🙂

  • Ashley Wagner says:

    Thanks so much for making these short videos! The practices are so beneficial even though they’re brief, and I really appreciate being able to still have a few minutes of yoga even if I can’t do a full practice!

  • Dóra Szabó says:

    Most of the time I am suspicious about short-time yoga practices because It can be easily a stressful rush. But this video is different. I'm definitely feeling the flow!

  • Bjørg skjerning says:

    So great, easy and nice, short practice. Gives a lot of energy, love it! Lots of love from Denmark ♥️

  • Kevan Winchester says:

  • Thaaaaaaanks that was exactly what I was looking for for those days when I can't focus on resting! You're the best!

  • Torie Farnsworth says:

    This was PERFECT for today, i NEED yoga before a 12hr day and i still feel great for taking time (even if it was only 5 minutes) for me 😌🙏

  • If i just could give you one like each time i did your 'take five Yoga break' you would have countless Likes 😉 thank you! <3

  • Nicole Mostofa says:

    Namaste 🙏🏻

  • marvin raphael monfort says:

    thankyou, adriene! i'm going to consider this a late birthgay gift coz it was posted on my be-day teehee! needed this today coz woke up semi late. but skipped cat cow in favor of a rotating seated variation as i bumped my knee on a hardwod bed so bad last week, the day after getting sideswiped by a ligh vehicle… hugsies and namaste!

  • AlwaysEating Death says:

    This was perfect for today, my cramps were bad but I knew yoga would help, and saying it's only 5 minutes was really helpful in getting me actually on the mat.

  • Exactly what I needed when my Yoga hour turned into a Yoga moment (15 minutes or less) due to outside circumstances (good ones though!). Quick, feel good, great energy.

    Hope every single of you feel the good vibes today and continue on, continueing on!

  • Wedyata Laras says:

    Hi adriene! I've been watching your videos for a while.. Love your style 🙂 Do you have any recommendations (or playlist, hopefully) for postnatal yoga? Wanna start practicing when I can find the time, but I worry if there's any possibly harmful pose. Thanks!

  • Hey lovely, I've done 30 days Dedicate and true, which 30 day would you suggest next? Look forward to hear from you soon to start on 1july 2019

  • This is one of my favorite go-to practices as a warm-up or just to squeeze in on busy days 🙂 thank you Adriene

  • Laura Archbold says:

    Thank you Adriene! Again so pleased, didn't have my yoga clothes and such a busy morning left me feeling deflated I couldn't do my yoga. But I found this quick yoga awesome for this morning and even without comfy clothing I nailed it, loved it and rejoiced in all the beautiful movements! Feeling absolutely amazing! Thank you again! See you tomorrow 😊 and thanks for loving my comments, warm fuzzies. P.s I have a venus furbaby that hangs out on my mat too 😁

  • Christina Keramyda-Tritsch says:

    Dearest, dearest beautiful, sweet, amazing Adriene! You are the Highlight of my mornings! THANK you for every single video!

  • This one is like a mini-massage during the day when you're crunching away on the computer, or any time you need some TLC for body & mind. LOVE!

  • Aurora Lightday says:

    This is perfect for my busy evenings after work when I just come home exhausted. Thank you so much for making videos that tend to all kinds of lifestyles. Much love to you!

  • This really helped, Thank you Adriene. You’re so helpful, especially with this quick practice when you don’t feel like doing Yoga but really need it! I’m sure I’m not the only one who this you’re amazing! I’m very greatful for this practice and time. Namaste, have a wonderful day.

  • Mariana Bausher says:

    I was on the verge of a mental breakdown at work. There is so much to do and not time to do it at all! With ADHD my brain runs wild… then I prayed and figured someone on YouTube would have a 5 minute “get centered and get moving” video. Well, here I am!
    Thank you so much for doing this. I feel so much better and I am ready to get back into this inbox…

  • Adventure Around Every Corner says:

    This short morning yoga quickie is by far my most favorite! It makes me feel energized and ready to go to work! The kind of boost I needed when I don't have much time

  • Josie-Ana Edenshaw says:

    Second comment: same statement. I study in 45 min increments, then take 15-20 min break depending on the subject and it’s the BEST for that late night study session when you need to get your body to agree with your mind and let you focus!
