After last week’s celebration of the Equinox and official change of seasons, we figured it was the perfect time for a two week Yoga Challenge.
Why not harness the power of Mother Nature to boost your motivation and discipline? Whether you already practice yoga daily or if this is a big change to your routine, participating with yogis around the globe in a supportive environment will help you feel healthier and happier. You’ll even receive inspiration, structure, and goal setting techniques with life coach and YogaDownload teacher Elise Fabricant.
Transformation isn’t easy, but we do have the power to make shifts in our thoughts, emotions, and physical strength and flexibility.
Change doesn’t happen overnight, which is why we’ve carefully chosen two weeks of yoga classes to keep you engaged, excited, and on track. You’ll have a choice of two different practices each day or if you’re feeling super-motivated, feel free to do both daily classes.
What are some of the benefits you should anticipate during this two-week challenge besides growing stronger, more flexible, and balanced?
You’ll be boosting your self-confidence by committing to step out of your comfort zone. We’re not going to lie, there will be days you don’t want to press play and will have to dig deep. But the more you stoke your inner fire, the more you’ll see what you can achieve. In yoga, we call this quality Tapas or the cultivation of self-discipline.
This process isn’t simple nor is it easy, but consistent practice is the only way to effect change.
It all starts with your mind. Yoga, at its essence, is about learning to quiet the mind. Yoga Sutra 1.2, Citta Vritti Nirodhaha, translates that yoga is learning to direct your thoughts where you’d like them to go or calming the “monkey mind.” Imagine your brain is a windowless room filled with a pack of wild monkeys. Meditation and yoga will help you quiet those cheeky little rascals down, at least for a little while.
With our challenge, you’ll not only feel more fit and flexible physically, you’ll become more grounded, calm, and positive inside. Whatever you feel you need to work on will be impacted! The benefits are inextricably linked so, no matter what your WHY is for this challenge, you’ll reap all of the benefits. Join your global yoga community and let’s make the shift together.
You'll be able to sign-up for this 2-week Yoga Challenge for Body & MInd.
