Adriene Mishler — an actress, writer and international yoga teacher from Austin, Texas — started her YouTube channel in 2012 with the intention of connecting “as many people as possible through high-quality free yoga videos.” Since the beginning of quarantine, her channel has curated thousands upon thousands of followers. Just recently, Mishler crossed the nine million subscriber mark.
I came across ‘Yoga with Adriene’ at the beginning of this school year. Feeling my usual neck and shoulder pain, I tried one of her 10-minute routines before class. It worked wonders. I always see comment threads from people around the globe who share the same sentiment. Fans admire how Mishler incorporates messages of love and awareness into her videos while keeping a light tone. Plus, a blue heeler puppy named Benji joins her on the mat for some “downward dog.”
‘Yoga with Adriene’ has made a notable difference to my 2020. Everyone deserves to take a few minutes for self-care daily, whether a pandemic reigns or not. There are targeted practices to address all health concerns, while others focus on abstract concepts like courage and self-respect. And if you’re up for the challenge, Mishler has a plethora of 30-day yoga journeys.
