Dedicate – Day 0 – Welcome To Dedicate | Yoga With Adriene


– Hi everyone. Welcome to Dedicate,
your 30 day yoga journey. It’s Day 0, okay? So you may or may not know but on this day we actually don’t
do any yoga. It’s Day 0. Just a quick little
orientation day to say hey and you’re awesome and way to
dedicate the next 30 days to taking time on your yoga mat. So amazing.
You’re in for a real treat. So today, wherever this
video finds you I’d just like to invite you to
take a deep breath in. And as you exhale just know (sighs) you’ve made
an amazing choice. Thank you so much for saying yes
to going on this journey with me and people all across the globe. It’s gonna be awesome. Today just a few little tips, pointers that might help you set yourself up for greatness. First, keep an open mind. An open mind and an open heart. This little
journey tells a story. It’s not your
normal yoga practice. We will make sure you’re safe. We’ll focus on action and
alignment but ultimately this is about breathing and listening
and spending time with yourself. Are you gonna get strong? Are you going to
gain muscle definition? Absolutely, we are
gonna work hard but in a really mindful way. So keep an open mind. Come with an open heart and be
willing to learn something new. Okay, the next thing is you
might want to bring a couple of blankets or folded up
towels or a pillow to class. This is just really helpful
because we spend so much time on the ground. If the low back, the hips
or the legs are super tight, it’s really nice to be able to
sit up on something to lift the hips so that your knees can drop
and you can create a little bit of space in the
front of the hips, the hip flexors,
to sit up nice and tall. So if you have a
little towel or blanky, you don’t need to have any fancy
yoga blanket or yoga block but if you have it you’re
welcome to bring it but just something that you can
sit up on from time to time. Okay, the final little loving
tip is about communication. Take a second today,
set an intention, write in your journal just say, “I choose to take 30 days and “dedicate this time
and focused energy “inward toward myself. “To get stronger in my body. “To get clear in my mind and
to do this so that I can have “energy and everything I need
to serve others and show up for “others in the world in a
way that feels really good.” So take a little time,
write it down, you can even
write it in your phone. Why are you going on this
journey and then the part two of this tip of communication is be
sure to communicate with people that you’re living with,
a roommate, a partner, your family, let them
know you’ve dedicated the next 30 days to spending
time on the mat. And they might want to
join you, they might not. It’s okay either way. But do take a second and I think
it’s really cool and awesome to just say, “Hey,
this is what I’m doing and “I’d love for you to
support me on this journey.” Alright my darling friends,
that’s it for now. I’ll see you tomorrow for Day 1. In the meantime,
I love you so much. You’re my hero for
saying yes to this journey. Invite your friends. It’s not too late to invite. You can invite a friend today
and they can go on the journey live, in real time with
people all across the globe. It really is a remarkable
one-of-a-kind experience that I’m honored to be a part of so
share it with as many people as you can and I’ll see
you tomorrow for Day 1. Namaste. (bright music)
