  • Thank you so much Adriene. My left knee over the past few months makes crackling noises when I bend it! Not sure why….No pain though, thank heavens. Good to appreciate the link between the muscles of the thigh and the knee. I therefore found this video very helpful and will definitely do it again.

  • I was directed to you by a friendI’ve had a couple of motorcycle accidents and my knees and I’ve been doing the yoga for beginners and it works but I am excited to find the one for the knees!

  • I miss being an auto mechanic standing for 12 hours a day and lifting heavy objects all the time any advice my L4 has subluxed 10 millimetres and I have advanced osteoarthritis in the joints 24-hour pain

  • This arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is a fantastic item. I`ve got a fractured spine, hip dysplasia & acute arthritis in both hips. I`ve used this during the winter and when my big toe knuckle gets painful because of donning shoes. I`ve tried out a lot of products. It is difficult to get something to help with the hips..

  • Really enjoyed this practice, my poor old knees have been playing up, but have improved greatly with Adrienes yoga practices, this one with the focus on taking care of the knees super! always reminding us of correct posture and breathing, love it, thank you Adriene.xx

  • Managing arthritis is simply something my spouse and I thought we would need to learn to live with. Which was before we tried the arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it). This technique is, definitely, the best thing we have ever found for pains and aches, both minor and serious..

  • Thank you Adriene. It always feels so good to come back home to your videos. In this crazy year one thing I know I can count on is you.

  • You have the ability to guide me to activate the right parts of my body; my mind muscle connection has been reignited! I have learnt more from you in this last few months than the last few years. Thank you. ����

  • I hurt my right knee last week on vacation. I slipped in sand while riding my bike. I am doing a body detox to reduce inflammation (instead of taking a med that equals to 16 advil in one day!!). In one day the detox started working, so on day 2 I feel well enough to try this yoga! Thanks for having one for sensitive knees Adriene!!!

  • That was amazing, the bridge pose and the slow explanation of this really showed me how to work this, phew I felt it fantastic oh and ‘Relax your Butt’ hahaha

  • This arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) is definitely the best item I`ve ever used for my arthritis joint pain. It is a miracle. Even when I`m aged, I still do a lot of gardening work in South Florida which involves lifting and carrying bags of fertilizer and soil, pruning, harvesting, and even more..

  • my dads dislocated both ankles, one knee and one shoulder so im assuming im at high risk as well so THANKS im going to be doing this one all the time now

  • I like this arthritis treatment method “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it)! It will take away the pain and discomfort from my many years old arthritic hands and joints. I personally use this often particularly when the pain is too much, but I only need to spread enough of it on my hands to make the pain go away fast..

  • Benji looks a little anxious today, like he having a bad reaction to coffee, sorry buddy. Love you both no one brings awareness to the breath like you Adriene.��

  • Love coming here on the 1st September 2020 first day of Spring in Australia even though it rained, its cold and windy… love reading funny comments about Benji being a wizard and home practise vs studio practise and the benefits of farting in comfort of own home. And better still to see this practise is part of September calender 2020 when I’ve just been to Doctor about my dodgy knee…how’s that!!!

  • This is awesome, thanks. I was recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my knees so I cannot do most of your practices any longer. ��. Do you have other knee-friendly videos please?

  • A friend of mine have problems taking walks as a result of pain and tightness of his knee and hip. Not until eventually he seen this particular knee pain remedy “Yοyοkοn Vxy” (Google it). He was really so impressed. I had no clue they will work as proficiently as they have. He really feel speedy results within One day quickly after he commenced employing it..

  • Thank you for sharing this helpful video! This article also provides some exercise tips for those with arthritis:

  • Cheers for the video content! Apologies for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you considered Dinanlinson Rocky Position Approach (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a great one off product for learning how to fix chronic knee pain minus the hard work. Ive heard some super things about it and my work buddy at last got amazing success with it.

  • Like the hip/ buttock stretches.. 15 odd years ago I was diagnosed with Tronchanteric Bursitis but in the last month had a CT scan for something else and have osteoarthritis in my mid back and hips so need to modify my daily 20 mins exercise routine…thanks!

  • Nice information.

  • I this video inspires you to do what is sometimes the most difficult part, which is simplifying, peeling back the layers, and just showing up.

    I share this question with you, “How will you show up?”
    Just take a moment to breathe with that.

  • Oooffff this was a hard one today. Mentally I just wasn’t in it and was feeling too anxious that everything felt like it was moving too slow. I guess just not one of those day today. ����‍♀️

  • Practicing a little late today but I am glad I did cause this was great thank you Adriene much love Namaste and good night ����������❤��

  • Supplements specifically for OA are garbage. NSAIDS and muscle relaxants gave me chronic intestinal issues. Topical don’t reach the joint. It’s hard to do strength training even though I am fit and not overweight, when your body is stabbing you from the nerve pain associated with OA.

  • Thank you so much for this practice! I really appreciate the emphasis on awareness around the knees, it’s extremely helpful. Especially with the warrior sequence. I’m coming back to yoga after 20 months of knee issues and this is exactly what I need. ����

  • Okay this practice was shockingly hard! Paying attention to every muscle at every moment while consciously relaxing my glutes really did me in! I’ve never worked my inner thighs as hard as I did while squeezing the block during the bridges. Now I know why I have such bad knees lol. Thank you Adriene for helping me to slow down and give some love to a part of my body that I’ve been angry at for years. I feel like this practice can really make a difference!

  • This gave me a little sweat �� what????! I felt them inner thighs turn on boy!!!! And I’ve been practicing for years. �������� thanks Adriene, beautiful practice today. Love you from the UK.

  • This is the second time in about a week I have done this class. It deepened my understanding of the thigh and knee connection. Thank you! #build

  • That was such a foundation building awe moment. I think I truly felt the four corners of my feet for the first time since I started yoga a few years ago. Thank you Adriene! Lots of love!

  • Thanks for your lovely practices Adriene <3 It'd be great to have a feet free practice (for hurt feet or ankles). Have a lovely day and thanks again

  • You have an amazing bass voice. I wish I can hear it daily. It is soothing. Yesterday I was injected in my knee with Hyl…acid. I feel grating sounds when I walk upstairs.

  • Super nice practice. My knees were most appreciatve. Especially as I have been having real trouble lately. We all need to take a step back now and again. Juggling too much and constantly factoring in yet another task or job is exhausting. There is beauty in simplicity. Cup of tea, sit down, and breathe. Have a beautiful day �� �� �� ��

  • Another therapeutic practice, kind and low to the ground, quite relaxing for my Sunday morning. It’s still a full body sequence though and afterwards I’m feeling it especially in arms and legs. See you tomorrow on the mat for a new one on Day 14, nearly half way through Build already, that’ll be fun ����‍♀️����‍♀️���� ( I had to edit this as I forgot to mention Benji! He was amazing, so lovely and he made us smile, bringing something special to our practice �� �� )

  • Thank you, Adriene!! My knees are very sensitive and I have a hard time with them (I’m almost 64 so, that could be part of it?). This practice helped me enormously! I will continue to use these poses in my practice. I love all your videos and have turned my daughters on to your practices too! Love you! A fan from East Texas!! I love Austin!!

  • How have you really known that i had a very hard-working week and today i had backache.. When i looked at the BUILD 2020, the practice was yoga for lower back!!! Thank you si much for the wise planning ��❤️

  • I injured my right knee running a couple of years ago & it’s never been quite the same. Sometimes I even struggle with lunges cause my knee gets sensitive. I bought a thicker mat, and that helps. But what also helps is feeling seen and having this practice. Thanks, Adriene.

  • I missed a chunk near the end because my little dog stole my blanket and I had to move him before I could take it back. What a terrible creature.

  • Adriene,,,,,,,,,i like your yoga sessions and i have been doing them in this lock down at home and plan to continue…like them a slow way to help me get my flexibility………thanks

  • I like this arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it)! I`ve had arthritis on my hands and joints for several years, and this item really helps to relieve a few of the discomfort. I use it frequently, not always everyday depending on how my joints feel, but I liberally spread this on my fingers and hands and within an hour they`re feeling better..

  • hi! i also have a lot of pressure in my knees and found this mildly bearable to follow. but my one question is that, when i do these exercises, my entire body goes numb? and tingly? please someone help me figure what this is

  • Where did time fly
    And why did this practice come in this evening when today realised not done practice for knees for a while and given self break from playlist today..and got ab workout
    I started this practice in bed����

  • Not only was this so nice for my knees but it helped relieve a lot of pain in my lower back as well. I know the two are connected but this practice helped emphasize the extent of that connection!

  • My knees have been bugging me lately and I felt certain that you would have a video to help with this. Thank you so much Adriene. You and Benji are always a safe place.

  • Dear Adriene, I have really enjoyed this video, thanks a lot! I’ve had two hip replacements due to an injury of cross ligament interieur, at 40 yrs old, that was badly operated: trying to avoid a knee prothesis, I feel the bones rubbing in my knee and pain too, I exercise everyday to maintain my balance; it’s a challenge! (after this work-out I feel relieved for the moment!) My left inner thigh muscle seems to be unattached, perhaps it is just weak? You have an amazing talent!

  • Nice Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you tried Dinanlinson Rocky Position Approach (do a search on google)? It is a great one off guide for learning how to fix chronic knee pain minus the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my cousin after many years got cool success with it.

  • I woke up very early this morning at 5am, stressed out and unable to sleep. I looked for Adriene’s newsletter but she had not sent it yet. Bummer. So I went on a long lonely walk…. And I have terrible knees (2 surgeries already and facing knee replacement). I came home from my walk and rechecked my email and there was her lovely email and it was for sensitive knees. Awesome! No matter what’s going on with me, she always has the perfect flow that brings me calm and peace and gratitude. Thank you Adriene!�� Bless all of you doing this video with me today! �� ��‍♀️��‍♂️�� Also, Happy Birthday Adriene!

  • Thank you Adriene, for being so calm, collected and positive. I love your energy and naturalness. Greetings from Munich. Namaste!:)

  • Lovely video for knees, I say ‘Semee circle’ not SemI but then I’m a brit so who knows what Americans say:) Thank you for the practice so hard to ‘Relax the BUTT’

  • Thanks for the Video! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you tried Dinanlinson Rocky Position Approach (should be on google have a look)? It is an awesome exclusive product for learning how to fix chronic knee pain minus the hard work. Ive heard some great things about it and my mate at last got great results with it.

  • I’m currently having issues with both knees so my yoga practice has been very limited. This video was perfect! Thank you so much!

  • I am 63/female. These are good, some hurt. My arthritis started in one shoulder, then the fingers. After about 9 months, suddenly it was in my elbows, shoulders, neck, lower back, knees and feet, one foot feels more like the Achilles where the pain is. This was after a 2.8 km walk when my daily walk goal is 1K. The pain and aching have increased ten fold in the last month. I am currently taking 2 Tylenol/Arthritis 3X a day and will be seeing my GP in Feb. Should I see my GP sooner as the flare up is so intense?

  • Thank you so much for this! I have a recovering knee injury so I am going to do this on a regular basis, until it gets better and I can go back to doing the 30 days program with you! You’re the best Adriene!

  • I love this one. My issue with knee pain is doing bridge poses pulls my right knee in such a painful way it’s no fun. I usually skip them, or do a wheel pose instead! =)

  • This is my first time practicing since I broke my back…it still not healed, but I couldn’t help it. I enjoyed the parts I could do. Thank you for exuding such great energy. You’re my favorite instructor!!

  • Thank you sooo much Adrienne, so glad I found you�� I have had to stop walking my usual 10 kms on the beach due to my right knee which has been diagnosed as osteo arthritis.. I’ve been feeling really down and definitely out of shape ( mainly due to co-vid and cooking and trying out my dishes ��). I am getting my yoga mat out now as we speak and doing your class❤️����

  • My nerves and my feet are suffering from pain and I also have arthritis (degenerative joint disease) in my lower back. The arthritis treatment solution “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) helped me cure this! I applied it for my feet, I have tried it on my neck, elbows and hands. Its wonderful results keeps surprising me until now..

  • My husband and I thought arthritis was some thing we`d to get used to our whole life. Until we discovered this arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it). This technique is, certainly, the good thing we`ve ever found for aches and pains, both minor and severe..

  • I like this arthritis treatment method “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it)! It will take out the pain and discomfort from my many years old arthritic hands and joints. I use this frequently especially when the pain is too much, but I only need to spread enough of it on my hands to make the pain go away fast..

  • I’m just 20 years old had shoulder injury last month lead to ac joint osteoarthritis,I am skinny my whole life @6ft just 58 kgs but in a year I gained from 58-70kgs now I’m loosing all my gains ��.Can I still workout with osteoarthritis.Will it ever go?? I’m worried

  • This was a very nice practice. My only concern was at the very beginning, with the blanket under my knees and with my hands on the mat behind me, my arms began to tingle and almost go to a “pins and needles” sensation. I had to widen my arms but then felt like my shoulders were up around my ears. Any suggestions?

  • I had a knee replacement 7 months ago and am really struggling with getting back to yoga. Please up load more yoga practices for people like me.: ))

  • I am here after trying Home Yoga Day 2 and hurting myself 20 mins in. I was happy I didn’t have to dwell on failing and could still get some yoga done. Seems like the end of my 30 day adventure though =_=

  • I’ve just started training for a 5k, and my inner knees were starting to feel twingy. I’ve been following the 30 day challenge, which has been great for strengthening everything, but I needed to focus more on my knees. This video helped hit those trouble spots. Thank you! Also, your dog is adorable!

  • Your videos are amazing. I injured my knee a few days ago and couldn’t do my regular Routine, then found this video and had the first good session where I don’t feel my knee is burning. Thank you!!

  • I was so depressed because of being without yoga for two months as I developed Chondromalacia Patella in my right knee. More than the physical pain, it was the mental agony of being so inactive and lethargic. Your video rescued me today and I feel like I have got a new life. Thank you so much for the wonderful video!

  • Thank you so much for this practice. My knees are sensitive because I often sit on them, it’s a bad habit that I have to break, as I’m a teenager and shouldn’t be experiencing this problem. I will try to do this practice once a week.

  • Your instructions are so precise for training thigh muscles I enjoyed it very much definitely I will strengthen my knees I am very great full to u and your advise.

  • I’ve had painful knees for years, today I tried this for the first time after progressing through chair yoga and easy routines… Love it, thanks Adrienne

  • I have struggled with knee pain for a while now and I always suspected it comes from imbalance in my muscles. Thanks so much for this practice! I did it for the first time today and I was struggling to engage my inner thighs. Especially the bridge I just couldn’t do without engaging my glutes. Feels like such a revelation:D gonna try this more often now to see if anything changes.

  • I have tried out many treatment solution for my arthritis joint pain, however the arthritis treatment “Rοngοdο Ruzο” (Google it) tops them all. It is a blessing. I am old and fairly active, work full-time, maintain a vegetable garden here in South Florida, execute a lot of lifting and carrying bags of soil and fertilizers, plus harvesting and pruning..

  • Hi Adriene, I’ve been doing your videos for about 4 weeks now. I wanted to know if you have a video for groin? I’ve got some bad knee pain atm and I’ve just done this yoga practice. Your videos are awesome btw ��❤️
