    I discovered Yoga With Adrienne back in college and spent the summer I was interning in NYC doing one of her "30-days of yoga" challenges in the small dorm I was living in. It was a great way to really start my yoga practice and work on yoga basics. Since then, I've turned to her videos for a variety of different reasons. She has such a calming voice and has yoga videos for different levels, lengths, or how you're feeling (such as experiencing stress, back pain, or cramps).
