Yoga For Hips & Lower Back Release | Yoga With Adriene

Yoga For Hips & Lower Back Release  |  Yoga With Adriene

– What’s up party people? And welcome to
Yoga With Adriene. I’m Adriene and this is Benji
and today we have an awesome practice for the hips
and the lower back body. So hop into something
comfy and let’s get started. (upbeat music) Alrighty my friends, let’s
begin seated in your yoga mat with the legs
out in front of ya. You’re gonna lift your knees,
place your feet on the ground, try to aim your
toes pointing forward. Just to start to send some
awareness towards your feet. And then you’re
gonna take your hands and you’re gonna
touch your booty. So we’re gonna move fleshy part
of the buttocks to the side so that you can feel this grounding
down through your sits bones. And if you don’t feel it,
that’s okay. Just would be to each his own. Moving the buttocks
just so you feel grounded. So we have our feet grounded and then we have
the sits bones grounded. And then just notice if the
knees are coming in or out. See if you can
align knees with ankles, so you have two
slides going down. Awesome, so we have
a swift practice today. Swift is and not long so we’re gonna jump
right in with the breath. Bring your hands
to your hamstrings. Just behind the
back to the thighs here. You’re gonna
keep your feet rooted, loop your shoulders,
start to lift your heart up. Now, there is the likely chance
that you’ve picked this video because you’re experiencing some
tension or some tightness in the lower back or hips so see if you
can send awareness and breath, whatever that means to you,
right down to that lower back right away here
as you breathe in. And breathe out. Then in your next breath in,
sit up a little taller, breathe in and then breathe out
you’re gonna slowly send your heart forward, chest forward. You’re gonna drape over
the tops of your thighs. Now you might clasp
opposite elbow here. Notice if the knees are
wanting to come in or out. See if you can keep these two
nice straight lines from the knees to the ankles,
toes pointing forward and then yep, you guessed it. Some of you are
probably already there, you’re gonna relax
the weight of the head over and still continue
with the breath. Ah, should feel really good. Notice where you might be
holding or clenching in the neck, the traps,
the shoulder area. The skin on
the forehead, the jaw, keep awareness in the toes. So keep that connection of the
sits bones and your feet just kind of grounding
you into the moment. Take a moment to
close your eyes here. Just feel the power of
your breath, that wave. Notice how it can
stretch as you breathe in and soften as you breathe out. And again,
if you haven’t already, go ahead and close your
eyes just for moment here, go inward. I love this shape. Doesn’t always have
to be a fancy yoga pose. Just uniting breath and body. Sweet, take one more deep breath in your own private
little love cave here. Nice, now release the hands, press the palms
firmly into the earth. Stay connected to everything that is touching
the ground here, your foundation as
you tuck the chin, start to lean back, way back,
and slowly roll it up. Awesome, take a
deep breath in here. Head over heart,
heart over pelvis. And then as you exhale, hands are gonna
come to behind the thighs. You’re gonna lift the toes up,
dig into the heels and if you’re experiencing any pain or
discomfort in lower back, you’re just gonna stay here. If you’re here for more of the
release and preventative care then you’re gonna lean back
and lift the shins and toes up parallel to the ceiling. Just connecting to
little core stability here. So we’re here or we’re
here and we’re breathing deep. Jumping right in. Thank you so much for sharing
your time and energy with me and with the Yoga
With Adriene community. You made a great choice. Take one more breath,
you got it. Awesome, then we’re
gonna slowly release, feet back to the ground. Then you’re gonna
send the left leg out long. You’re gonna hug
the right knee in, squeeze as you send your sternum up
towards the sky. Flex your left toes, take a deep
breath in and then on an exhale, you’re gonna slowly bring
your right hand behind you and you’re not
gonna twist to look back. You’re just gonna
twist to look to the right. So the right side of your mat,
not all the way back. Just gentle and easy here. Big breath, squeeze and lift. Great, then you’re
gonna come back to center. We’re gonna bring the
right knee out this time. And then we’re gonna
lift the right fingertips all the way up towards the sky. Left fingertips
brace behind you. Then you’re gonna think up
and over as you reach the left fingertips to either
grab the outer, sorry, right fingertips to grab
the outer edge of your left foot or your left shin
or your left thigh. So you could be here,
here or here. Now actively draw the
top of the right thigh, that meaty quad muscle,
and your thigh bone, the femur, down towards
the earth as you inhale, lift your chest. Lots of awareness. 100% full body awareness. Take a deep breath in. And then exhale,
you’re gonna release your hand and then we’re just gonna take
the hands to the earth, the shin or the foot and you’re
gonna come all the way flat, belly towards the thigh. Just intention not you
have to come all the way flat. Head to knee pose,
take one more breath here. Big cycle of breath in and out. Breathing into that lower back
body and then slowly release. Don’t push anything. Just let it kind of be
where it’s at today. And you’re gonna guide
the right knee all the way up. And we’ll just do a switcheroo. Send the right leg down,
I’m not gonna lie guys, I’m on a little bit of
a cold medicine. Okay? Just got to keep it real. Right leg goes out,
left leg comes in. Nothing better than a little
at-home yoga to tend to the body so I’m all good, don’t worry. Not that you were worried.
(laughs) Squeeze and lift so
find this foundation first. Nice and tall,
hug that left knee in. And then again, we’re
not going all the way back. Today, we’re just
going to the left. So you’ll bring the
left fingertips behind. This is to help us resist the urge of cranking
all the way back, creating stability
and finding length today. Big breath here,
breathe into your belly. Nice, and then slowly
we’ll come back to center. We’re gonna open
the left knee out. Beautiful, then
left fingertips reach up. Got it right this time. Right fingertips come back to
anchor you and then you’re gonna think up and over as you reach
towards the outer edge of the right thigh,
outer edge of the right shin, or all the way over to
outer edge of that right foot. And you’re of course
gonna feel that great, long lengthy release
in the lower back body. And you know what
makes it even better? You bringing
conscious breath to the par-tay. So soften your gaze. Breathe deep. Let your left thigh bone,
left quad get really heavy here. So we’re actively
drawing down as we lift and lengthen over the right leg. Awesome, then slowly release. Frame your right leg with your
hands and then you’ll decide what feels best here.
Maybe grabbing the shin. Maybe one day the foot,
maybe you’re just here. Baby steps and we’ll slowly
fall into our version of head to knee pose,
Janu Sirsasan. Hey buddy. Breathing deep. Then slowly press
into your foundation to roll up and look what Benji did.
(laughs) He loves to sit on top
of people or on top of things. You think you’re a lap dog. Okay, from here, from here we’re
gonna pull the right foot in to meet the left, Baddha Konasana but we’re gonna give
ourself a lot of space today. So if you’re used to kind of
zipping up to the center line, awesome for you, my loves but we’re gonna give
ourself a little space. You’re gonna create a diamond
shape by bringing the heels out. Then hands are gonna hold
on to the shins or the ankles so shins if you seem to
be rounding forward. If you have that length already
here then you can go ahead and go for the ankle and find a
little rotation in the pelvis. Okay, inhale,
sit up nice and tall. Exhale, bend the elbows. You’re just gonna slowly shift
forward so that you’re looking just beyond the toes. Maybe looking into a pond,
seeing your reflection. And then we’ll come
all the way back up. And then back again,
navel draws in and up, create space, coming forward,
bend the elbows. And then come back up and
then this is the last time we’re gonna hold there, and you
might find that the option is available to allow the elbows to
press the tops of the thighs out a little bit and
maybe open the toes. So we’re breathing deep. Tops of the thighs
actively anchoring down. Ooh, yeah. This is a good one, tuck
the chin a little bit here. Find length. Nice, and then release. Bring the hands
to the outer edges of the thighs or the knees. You’re gonna bring the knees
together and then we’re gonna send the legs out long. If the legs are a bit tight,
lower back, hamstrings a bit tight, just go ahead
and keep a nice generous bend in the knees by
digging into the heels. If you’re able to straighten the
legs let’s go ahead and send the toes up towards the sky and keep
nice and active in the toes. Check it out, left fingertips
are gonna go back. You’re gonna slowly
reach all the way up and over, touch your right toes. Then come all the way back up. Left fingertips, I did it again. Right fingertips
are gonna go back, think up and over,
touch your left toes. Again, you can bend the
knees here for this flow. Inhale to reach up and over. It’s like you’re
swimming here, big stroke. And then come back and
then all the way up and over. And you’re gonna keep doing this
and see if you can find a nice breath to sync up with. And this is definitely one where
I like to remind you to not worry about what it
looks like but how it feels. Explore the sensations as you move with your breath. We’ll go ahead and even it out. And then the next time you’re in
your Forward Fold with the knees bent or with the legs straight,
with a micro-bend, you’re gonna go
ahead and hang out there, Paschimottanasana. I love to bend my
knees in Paschimottanasana. When I was younger, I really
tried to get that peanut butter and jelly sandwich but I think
I was straining my muscles a bit more then now I know that
I would have wanted. (laughs) Whoever’s doing
the captions on this video, good luck with that one.
No, just kidding. Basically, bend your knees. Because we’re not just
trying to get loose hamstrings. It’s all connected, right? It’s all tied in
to one moving part. So we want to integrate. I’ll stop talking for a second
and I’ll allow you to listen to the sound of your breath as you allow the weight
of the head to relax. And then take one more
breath in your private, beautiful,
therapeutic love cave. And then slowly grounding
through your foundation to tuck the chin and roll
it all the way up. Okay, so how you get here will
be a little bit different for everyone but I’m gonna
guide you to bend both knees and bring the feet
flat to the earth. Okay, so we’re in this bit of an
awkward pose to start but we’re gonna use our fingertips,
we’re gonna turn the toes out. This is very important. Turn your toes out, bring
your fingertips behind you, then here we go, lift
up from your pelvic floor, connect to your core and
you’re gonna slowly come forward into a Froggy Pose. Knees are gonna trace the toes. A big hip opener here. Find soft, easy movement here. Notice if you got a little bit
frustrated there, that’s okay. That’s why we’re
here to create space one lovely at-home
yoga practice at a time. It’s all good. So create a
little movement here. You can stay in the Froggy Pose
or you might widen your feet just a bit more,
drop your heels back and come into
this low yogi squat. A little Malasana variation. So you know your body best,
you are the expert. So you can stay in
the Froggy or come here. Big full, deep breaths no matter
what variation you’re choosing. Again, try to think of
the body as one moving part. It’s kind of why I’ve selected
this little dance today so that we’re not just going
isolating hip stretch. Isolating back stretch. Even though this is
really great for the lower body. All of it, take one more breath. Maybe lean back
wherever you are. Sit up nice and tall. Yes, and then release
we’re gonna lift the heels if you’re in the squat. You’re gonna
walk the toes back in. Knees are gonna
go forward, toes forward. Come to the center of your mat. And again, if you’re
feeling sluggish today, just remember this
time is so awesome. You get to kick your
shoes off and do yoga, right? You’re not at work, yet. Okay, then from here
toes pointing forward, fingertips on the
earth to support us, we’re gonna slowly
drop the head down, drop the heels and
send the hips up high so you’re in a
Standing Forward Fold. Allow the blood
to flush to the head. You can claps the elbows,
rock a little side to side. Now you have gravity
working for you here. So you might be able to straighten the
legs just a bit more. But careful not to lock them. And then really, oh,
take this time to release. Have you been holding on to or
carrying around something heavy that needs to be shed? No matter how big or how small,
can you take a really conscious moment here to let go? Choose to release something that maybe is
just no longer needed. Maybe that’s just tension
in the neck and shoulders or tightness in the hips. That’s where we
store it all anyway. Oh yeah. If the arms are clasped, go ahead and
release the hands down. Now you’re gonna walk your
feet as wide as your yoga mat. Once again, turn the toes out. Inhale, use your
fingertips on the ground and exhale to support you. Exhale, slowly drop your center
back down into your Froggy or into your yogi squat. Take a deep breath in here,
smile, life is good. Then exhale, you’re gonna
bring the fingertips behind you. We’re gonna come all
the way back sitting, seated. Awesome, send the legs out long. Sit up nice and tall. Beautiful Dandasana. Toes up towards the sky,
breathing deep. Close your eyes, center. Nice and then
press into your hands, dig into your heels. You’re gonna lift your hips up. Send ’em towards
the front of your mat and come all
the way to your back. When you get there,
take a deep breath in. The deepest breath you’ve
taken all day and as you exhale, hug your navel into your spine and hug the knees
up towards the chest. That’s right, find
what feels good here. Give yourself a big hug. Roll around one
way and then the other. Let any sounds of gestures that
want to come out of the body, (laughs) let them come out. Sigh of relief or release. Great, then you’re gonna lower
your left foot to the ground. And you’re gonna cross your
right leg over your left leg. Now check it out, use the
hands to press into the earth, you’re gonna shift your hips
over towards your right side of your mat, and then slowly just
allow your legs to fall towards the left side of your mat. Now, if you’re
experiencing any stress or tension in the lower back, you’re gonna skip this and
you’re gonna come into maybe a more gentler twist. Make it an easy reclined twist. Knees just stacked
on top of each other. Otherwise we’re in
the Garudasana legs-ish, Eagle Legs, breathing deep. Soft fingertips. Send your breath downward. And then anchor
through your foundation to come all the way back up. Right foot comes to the earth as
you re-center the spine and then left leg’s gonna cross over. We’re gonna use our
foundation to lift the hips up. Press down through the earth,
lift the hips up, send the hips to the
left side of the mat. And then let this just
fall easy to the right. No pushing or forcing. Mmmm. And we’re
breathing into the belly. You can close
your eyes on this one. And then slowly press
into your foundation to come all the way back up to center. Take your hands,
bring them to your kneecaps. You might have to
peek at me for this one. We’re gonna
stabilize a little bit, neutralize the spine by
bringing the palms to the knees. You’re gonna scoop
the tailbone up first so that it’s nice and
flush with the mat. This should feel yummy and
it requires you to be active. So you’re gonna
scoop the tailbone up, draw the navel down. So there’s no space between. Breathe deep here,
try to soften through your feet. And then if this
just feels amazing, you’re just gonna stay here. Otherwise, we’re gonna release and now slowly
allow the pelvis to tilt, the lower back to lift up. Just the opposite
of what we were doing. And again, you’ll know if it’s
right for you to stay with your lower back flush with the mat. And if you do take the tilt,
you might come right on to that SI joint,
right on to the sacrum. Nice and easy. Soft in the feet,
soft in the jaw. Great, and then nice and slow,
scoop the tailbone up. Hug the knees into the chest. Nice work, you’re
gonna reach around. We’re gonna end
with a Happy Baby. So you’re gonna grab
the outer edges of the feet or the inner arches. I’ll let yogi’s
choice rule here. And then you’re gonna
kick one leg then the other, soles of the feet actively
kicking towards the sky. And now actively
reach your tailbone towards the front edge of your mat. Try to lift up
the lower back here. Breathe deep. If you want to some
soft easy movement here, please do. (sighs) One more big breath in and out. And then we’ll release. Awesome. Feet come
to the ground. You’re gonna windshield wiper
the legs one way and then the other to extend the
legs all the way out. Great, bring you
left hand to your heart and your right
hand to your belly. We’ll take a final breath here
to just allow the nutrients of our practice to settle in. Go ahead and close your
eyes when you land here. Feel the warmth of your hands. Inhale, lots of love in. And exhale, lots of love out. Nice work today. Go ahead and
leave behind anything that’s not working for you,
not serving you. You can just leave it
on the yoga mat. It’ll evaporate and transform
into something new for someone. So just a little opportunity
to release and leave behind whatever wasn’t working so
that you can plant new seeds, find new joy and
rock your best self. I want to rock
with you all night. (hums) Go ahead and
bring your palms together. Tap into a little inner smile. Take a deep breath in and we
finish by quietly whispering Namaste. (upbeat music)

    Carve out the time, my friends! Let me know how your practice went in the comment section below!

    "And still, after all this time,
    The sun never says to the earth,
    "You owe Me"

    Look what happens with
    A love like that.
    It lights the Whole Sky"

    Thank you so much for all your video's! I love that you show that there are a lot of variations so anybody can join and just be themselves instead of just mindlessly copying someones pose.
    I have one question though that maybe someone can give me some advise on.. I do not seem to be able to touch my knees to my chest. It is like something is blocking the movement at the crease of my hips. That's why I came to this video, since I thought I might just have tight hips. But when I do poses like that (childs pose, putting knees to chest or the "easy" sitting pose you show in this video with your head on your knees) it does not really feel like stretching but more like something is being crushed in the crease (hipbone and top op my leg). Are there more people that experience this? Any advise? Thanks in advance! And a wonderful day to everyone! 🙂

    Please adriene you r the best. BUT stop talking much things that is not neccessarily associated with these movements. It makes me distracted from yoga and feel much more anxiety instead.

  11. lynda ward Post author

    you transmit so much empathy and natural friendliness Adriene that it's like you really are connecting with each person individually in your videos.

  12. Ruby Vandervelde Post author

    This might be my favourite video. Such a gentle and helpful practise. I need to get myself a Benji to fully experience this.

  13. allya de la rania Post author

    It was actually hard for me to get a replacement for my "real" yoga teachers whom I practice with during the year. But with Adriene, I have found the perfect trainer : gentle, caring & motivating! thanks a lot : I take you with me in my luggage for the summer ! 🙂

  14. SKiTzGEMINI Post author

    This was an excellent stretch for my thighs and hips…beginning to feel a difference in the way i walk?

  15. A T Mac Post author

    Thank you! I've multiple injuries and added another 3 weeks ago – strained my knee in yoga. This was such a great way to get back into the practice

  16. Jarius Brown Post author

    I like the yoga exercises but more so I liked how you kept it real. Because too many people try to be perfect in yoga and I loved how you started singing rock with you lol

  17. Rey Andujar Post author

    My lower back pain is so bad that my doctor thought I had a hernia. This practice gave me immediate relief. I followed almost all the movements but I was looking more for relaxation and release. I recommend this to anyone. Is incredible. Thanks so much for your knowledge. Namaste.

  18. Rory lowdon Post author

    Great! Just starting yoga at 55. Nice length of vid and not too impossible for a surfer with a crunchy back! Thanks x

  19. Chuckburg Post author

    Adrian really let's her personality shine in her videos. She's mastered talking to her viewers to the point where I feel like she's here with me doing yoga.

  20. marvin raphael monfort Post author

    yeah wasn't worried hehe but refreshing when yoga teachers are relatable xo

  21. Stefan Schraner Post author

    A bit too much talking for my taste of yoga. Though you' d have some great videos.

  22. jose antonio salinas vega Post author

    Great practice i tried to follow you at my own, my flexibility is not good but i did my best, at the end i felt the difference and release in my lower back, thanks for sharing, namaste

  23. mumadrumma Post author

    Thank you for your amazing practices and your incredibly positive energy – fyi it's challenging for me to breathe yoga-style when constantly chuckling at your comments and your pooch's shenanigans lol Fyi, you pretty much fixed my back today, thank you!

  24. Cristal Moyer Post author

    I am so glad I stumbled upon your yoga videos. I LOVE doing yoga with you. Your practices make my body feel amazing and I love your demeanor. You are awesome!!

  25. Mary Etuk Post author

    I fucking love you, Adrienne! Like… absolutely love you! You’ve completely transcended my idea of yoga! God bless you (or whatever higher power you believe in) seriously, I am crying. I love you so! Thank you for this and the rest of your YouTube anthology. Namaste. ??

  26. Lenora Shivell Bucklin Post author

    This is one of your best, my hips, quads and hamstrings have been hurting from riding my bike and this session has helped tremendously. You are so good at what you do, keep going!!

  27. Scott Allen Post author

    Found my way here because of the chasing scratch podcast…. Glad I did Good content. Thanks Adrienne #chasingscratch

  28. Monique Ortega Post author

    Honest, I stopped watching as soon as you said, "what's up party people". Personally, I wanted to calm myself and loosen my tension. Partying and being super energetic is the opposite of that. Sorry, I am sure you are great at what you do. Also, the dog in the video was not my thing. I have a child I do not bring him to practice. Although at home he does join me. I am not teaching.

  29. CalumG. Post author

    LOL..I died when Benji (I hope I spelled that correctly) came and sat right on your leg. Anyway, thanks so much for this routine. It was perfect. I've been weight training for years and lower back pain and hip stiffness has been a nagging problem for me. I've found your routines loosen me up nicely and take the pain away. The movements just flow into one another perfectly.

  30. J. Ryan Appleton Post author

    Every time she says to move the squishy part of the buttocks out of the way, I get sad when I realize I don’t have a squishy part 🙁

  31. Lasse W. Post author

    I just started out with a few of your vids and i cant even sit like you do in the beginning. damnit, theres a long way to go i guess.

  32. Eliza Tipping Post author

    Quite simply, the best Adriene! My lower back was feeling bit achy and this really helped – I also need to let go of a person in my life and that surprise message and focus with your meditations was also EXACTLY what I needed (as well as the little MG song haha). Thank you so much!

  33. Anna West Post author

    That first positions the one I have mental breakdowns in hahahaha who knew I was doing yoga the whole time

  34. Flubsify Post author

    So this is the first ever comment ever…. You rock! I always hated all those "crazy" spiritual yoga people…. and you're just chill and real… slightly nuts as well, but in a good way ? Love this and the way you approach Yoga!!!

  35. Hilary Thomson Post author

    I really enjoyed this session. I suffer from lower back and hip pain on a daily basis which is to do with my job so my yoga session this morning has helped to ease the pain and stiffness, x

  36. Jennifer Joyce Post author

    This is one a favorite short practice to release my low back and open my hips. Thanks for looking at how everything is connected Adriene!

  37. Cynde Parker Post author

    This felt so good for my lower back and hips! Love Benji sitting on you, made me laugh?. Thanks for your positive energy and all your great videos ❤️

  38. Jade Dennis Post author

    I love this! Really connected with my lower back and allowed me to relive some tension – thanks Adriene! ?

  39. Jess Nolan Post author

    This practice was perfect for my body today ❤️ I just felt like I needed to unfold and stretch out and this was it ? thank you ?

  40. Kris Kros Applesauce Post author

    It's 5am and I searched how to stretch lower back and hips, as I'm almost in tears from pain. I watched this first before trying it (and read all the positive comments). I couldn't stretch as far, and it hurt every muscle. After laying on my back for 5 minutes before getting up, I could feel how my back was stretched. I've never done yoga before. Today, I subscribed to this channel, as my bad feels instantly 50% better. Thank you so much!!

  41. Don Morgan Post author

    Excellent teaching style! But for people like me who have lower back issues this particular practice which has a large number of movements rounding out the lower back, is a problem. We need to keep the integrity of the lower back alignment and rounding out the lower back especially before getting warmed up causes more injury.

  42. Jim A Post author

    What is the stretch called at 18:42? I found that my hip/butt area was very tight and it felt good to lay there for a bit. What other stretches could help relieve this tension? Thanks!

  43. Kathie Walli Post author

    I love this yoga outfit……would you tell me the make please……yes I loved this practice… many breaths ?

  44. Bronwyn H Post author

    Namaste, yogini!
    Finally, the yoga series I've been looking for! You're a truly excellent teacher, you have such a warm and positive energy, and I just love how REAL you are. I'm sure I don't have to tell you how much positive impact you have on the lives of others…at the risk of being another 'thanks' on the pile – I have fibro and almost no muscular support in my joints…and your flows help, so much. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!

  45. Kholoud Aladel Post author

    Adrienne, thank you so much for your help in relieving our pain. However, I felt that your other video re lower back pain worked better for me. P.s. I have a back and hips pain.

  46. Kelly B. Post author

    I return to this amazing practice whenever my hips or lower back feel wonky and tight (I think it's in my Top Ten list!). Hope that everyone here has happy hips like I do now. ?

  47. Laura Archbold Post author

    Totally needed this today and your lovely inspiring words of encouragement. Thank you Adriene! Thank you

  48. blisssarah Post author

    Thank you so much for this video! I was having really bad hip pain from dancing for hours… After doing this practice I feel so much better, basically all the pain and tension is gone!!

  49. Caroline Carreau Post author

    Hello Miss Adriene and thank you for the inspiration and the practice,
    A Smile for BEnjie

    This might be good for some people, but totally ruined my back and put me in a lot More pain than I already was in. My recommendation is to not do this if you have a herniated or bulging disc in your lower back

    I have been suffering from sciatic pain for so long. I did yoga about a year ago and it got better… then, like I sometimes do, I stopped. It came back even worse. I have been doing this video for only about a week and I am already feeling a big difference. I will definitely keep on doing it. You are amazing and I really like watching your videos… it's like having a friend in my living room! Thank you and God Bless!!

    I pinched a nerve in my hip a few days ago and was not even able to sit or walk so I was nervous about getting back into yoga! But this really felt amazing and I think it helped release the tension from the past pain from my lower back and hips! Thank you Adriene!

    That wide Baddha Konasana pose triggered something in me that I felt so much appreciation for my body and I started crying and smiling. Never experienced that before. Thank you for this! Your gifts are the best because no one can give anything better than a positive experience, in my opinion. I'm so grateful that I found you and your work. You're irreplaceable!
