I discovered Adriene Mishler whilst on the hunt for accessible yoga videos that I could do from the comfort of my own room. At the time I was living in a hotel in Mexico, and I wanted not only to get fit, but to find something to complement my running and soothe my frazzled nerves.
Yoga with Adriene was an absolute revelation to me. I was really captured by Adriene’s no-nonsense, approachable style and attitude to yoga-she is very playful and fun, and not too zen and soothing like so many other yogis you find out there. (Nothing against them, of course, but I’m not a particularly zen person, so I really struggle with the whole spa voice.
I undertook her 30 Days of Yoga challenge, which got me into a really great routine of doing yoga, and moving my body, at least once a day, every day. I even tried her Yoga for a Broken Heart sequence, which really soothed me and allowed me to let out some pent-up frustrations. No joke, I cried at the end. But in a cathartic way.
I don’t have so many facts and figures on Adriene, but I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite videos from her channel. If you have time, give one of them a go! We all know yoga is good for runners, but these videos tend to take a more holistic view, and can give you more complete strength, conditioning and suppleness.
Who’s your current woman crush? Please, as always, I’m keen to know!
Lots of love,
