Tap Into Your Gratitude With These Free Follow-Along Yoga Videos You Can Do at Home
Sure, some people spend Thanksgiving morning running that annual 5K Turkey Trot. Others spend it by the oven, basting the main course bird, or on the road driving to their relatives' house. But whatever you choose to do in the hours leading up to the Turkey Day festivities, try to stay grounded and tap into the gratitude that this holiday is all about. And, what better way to do so than with some introspective, calming yoga?
Ahead, teachers like Adriene Mishler and Jacquelyn from Action Jacquelyn will walk you through yoga meant to give you moments of reflection, reminding you of what your body can do and what you're grateful for. As Adriene says in one of her videos, "Take a moment to appreciate your body, to appreciate and be thankful for this time, your practice, all that you have, all that we have and that we share. . . . Recognize how gratitude, being thankful, makes you feel. I totally believe it's a powerful practice, and it's my go-to when I feel like I don't know what to do."
These videos range from 12 to 40 minutes in length, and if you choose to follow along, they'll be a great escape from the meal prep (and also the chaos that family reunions may bring!). Plus, try these flows any day of the year for a special opportunity to work on flexibility, ease your mind, and move with intention.
