Make 2020 Your Best Year Yet
Make 2020 Your Best Year Yet

"The starting point of all achievement is DESIRE. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat." - Napoleon Hill

Get fired up! Are you ready to tap into your innermost desires and stoke your motivation? Join us for our incredible 2020 challenge and we’ll be right there with you getting fired up for not just your best year ever, but your best DECADE ever. We’re going to give you every single little thing you need to help you kick off 2020 and manifest your desires for your best life. All you need to bring to the table is your Tapas…

Tapas? If you aren’t familiar with this Sanskrit term, Tapas is one of the Niyamas or five internal practices from the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali’s Eight-Limb Yoga Path. This path outlines your journey through yoga and life. Cultivating these qualities before and during your time on the mat will lead you to success. 

Here’s a quick review of the eight limbs of yoga:

1. Yamas—the five moral restraints or behaviors:

    Ahmisa––non-violence

    Satya––truthfulness

    Asteya––non-stealing

    Brahmacharya––moderation

    Aparigraha––non-hoarding

2. Niyamas––the five internal practices or observances

    Sauca––cleanliness, purity

    Santosa––contentment

    Tapas––discipline, perseverance

    Svadhyaya––self-study

    Isvara-pranidhana––devotion to a higher power

3. Asana––Posture

4. Pranayama––Breath control

5. Pratyahara––Withdrawal of the senses

6. Dharana––Concentration

7. Dhyana––Meditation

8. Samadhi––Enlightenment/Union/Absorption

“Tap” translates to Blaze, Burn, Shine, Suffer Pain or Consume with Heat. Patanjali explained Tapas as a burning zeal for practice and a zest for life. Cultivating your internal tapas or discipline is key to living up to your highest potential. Combine a sense of joyfulness with outer discipline––you know, get out of bed and get on your mat no matter what––will lead to inner discipline.

Are you in? We’ll help personalize this challenge just for you and send classes right into your inbox with a variety of yoga styles, teachers, levels, and class lengths.

All you need to do is decide you want to start 2020 off with a powerful boost.

No matter what else is on your plate, a consistent yoga practice will guide you into the flow of where you want to go.
