Nuclear magnetic resonance data of $^{27}$Al in an yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG: Y$_3$Al$_5$O$_{12}$) single crystal co-doped with V$_2$O$_5$(0.7\%) and Cr$_2$O$_3$(0.2\%) are obtained using a Fourier transform NMR spectrometer within the temperature range between 180 K ~ 410 K. The line width of the $^{27}$Al nucleus resonance line decreases with as temperature increases due to motional narrowing. The chemical shift of $^{27}$Al NMR spectra decreases as temperature increases for YAG crystal. The spin-lattice relaxation times $T_1$ of $^{27}$Al nucleus were computed as a function of temperature. The $T_1$ of $^{27}$Al nucleus in YAG single crystal increases as temperature increases. The calculated activation energy for the $^{27}$Al nucleus in YAG: V, Cr single crystal is $E_{a} = 58 \pm 3$ meV.
