It’s the two-week countdown to 2021 and time to set yourself up to transition and transform. We don’t know about you, but we are more than ready to kiss 2020 goodbye and step into the realm of new possibilities. Starting January 1, 2021, we’ve got a three-week challenge designed to usher in a fresh start and provide you with the framework to start your year feeling empowered and renewed. Yoga is one of the most potent tools we have to navigate the ebbs and flows of change.
By concentrating on building our strength and balance from the inside out, we are better equipped to handle whatever comes our way. Yoga and meditation are two practices that will fortify your mind and heart and smooth the inevitable shifts ahead. We’ve all been reminded, rather forcefully, that we don’t have much control over external events, only over our reactions to them. If you’ve found yourself more anxious, more depressed, more emotional in general, you aren’t alone. The good news is you can learn to flex the internal muscles of your mind and train yourself to be less reactionary. The more you practice, the more strength and balance you’ll embody, regardless of prevailing circumstances.
These next few weeks are perfect to prepare yourself and begin the journey toward transformation. Can you slow down and savor this transition? This in-between time? Often, we’re in a hurry to get started on new projects and endeavors, but the space between is vitally important. Just like when you’re on your yoga mat, the transition between poses is important and many of us hurry through to the next pose without recognizing and appreciating that the transitions are part of the practice.
Transitions are when you check in on your breath. Check in on how you’re feeling. Where you concentrate on the journey instead of the destination. Transitions are where the gift of being fully present is realized.
The holidays may look different this year because most of us won’t be traveling. Take this opportunity to slow down and plan for next year. Review 2020 and write down a list of what you’ve learned through this global experience we’ve all shared together. Consider what you’re ready to release and leave behind so you can reinvigorate your mind, body, and soul. Having a structure and a community to share your 2021 commitment to deepening your yoga practice with will make the experience even sweeter.
This challenge is suitable for all levels, from yoga newcomers to experienced practitioners who want to be challenged. There will be a mix of styles including Power, Hatha, Vinyasa, and Yin. This challenge will also feature yoga philosophy lectures, meditation classes, and technique workshops to broaden your horizons. All you have to do is show up and we've made it as easy as possible for you in this challenge, as every morning, you'll receive your class choices for the day directly to your inbox.
