Transform Your Life 30-Day Yoga Challenge

30 Day Yoga Challenge With DoYogaWithMe.com

 

Welcome to our Transform Your Life 30-Day Yoga Challenge. This challenge was meant to run only for the month of January, but due to the huge success of the challenge and the number of emails we've received, we are going to leave this up for you to do anytime. 

There are two options for this yoga challenge: beginner and intermediate. Each day will showcase two classes, one for beginners and one for intermediate yogis. You can choose the class that is most suitable for your skill level. Each challenge level was designed to flow from one class to the next.  Therefore it is a good idea to remain on the same level for the duration of the challenge.

For those who would like to receive their class delivered directly in their inbox every day you can sign up for the 30-day challenge mailing list here

Not sure which challenge to do? Follow these guidelines:

Do the Beginner Challenge if: you have been practicing yoga for a year or less or you most frequently choose beginner classes online or gentle to moderate hatha yoga classes in a studio. The classes will range from gentle beginner to challenging beginner classes and will include restorative and yin classes.

Do the Intermediate Challenge if: you have been practicing yoga for a year or more and you most frequently choose power or vinyasa classes online or at a studio. The classes will range from gentle intermediate to challenging intermediate and will include mostly power/vinyasa yoga classes. 

Important: No matter which challenge you choose, you will most likely feel challenged in many different ways - physically, mentally, spiritually. Remember that yoga is about humility, surrender and experiencing your true self, and sometimes it's better to choose the more gentle path in order to sink into your inner experience. So don't be too concerned about choosing the right challenge during your 30 days of yoga - enjoy the path you are on!

I am almost through with 30
lmourey 2 months ago

I am almost through with 30 days intermediate challenge and it has been a fantastic journey! I was forced to stop due to a ruptured ACL and meniscus followed by surgery and it was difficult getting back into the practice as I was lacking proper motivation to practice every day as I always practice from home and my knee was not as flexible as previously- sitting back on my heels was impossible at first. Thanks to this motivating challenge due to different classes ranging from gentle to challenging intermediate with a variety of times I am looking forward to each days new class.
Slowly my body is getting back to its previous flexibility and I absolutely love it ! Planning to continue with Fijis 14 day challenge right after. Thank you for keeping these challenges up

This is my second time working through the 30 day challenge and I love it! It's amazing to see how much stronger and flexible you can become in just 30 days of practice. I was lost on what videos I should try after completing the 30 day challenge (and then Fiji's 14 day challenge), so I started again from the beginning. The movement from one class to the next is fantastic. I love the mix of teachers and the variability day to day, Thanks so much for leaving this challenge up for us to enjoy!

What a wonderful 30 day experience this has been for me! My body feels stronger internally and externally. The second portion of the 30 days was were I started feeling a difference, maybe a better appreciate and love of the practice. Another great attribute was that I experienced new teachers, I would always tend to follow the same ones. Thank you for putting this challenge together. Namaste :)

Excellent 30 Day Challenge
Emanpo 5 months ago

I'm 2/3 through this Yoga Challenge and have loved every minute of it! The program has helped me schedule time for yoga into my daily routine. I followed the intermediate videos and found there to be a great range of gentle classes to very challenging classes. Thanks for the great challenge!

Thank you so much
Helen Alford 6 months ago

I just wanted to thank you for making this available. I can't afford a yoga class right now and dropped my practice due to lack of money and self discipline! I used to do ashtanga yoga but have really enjoyed starting at the beginning and running through the beginners challenge. Actually taking it slowly, building up flexibility and strength while really being able to take the time to listen to my body has been wonderful. Although gentle it's surprising the difference it's made to my body and mind. I plan next to work through the intermediate challenge and then begin my ashtanga practice again.

Neck "crunch"
meadowlander 6 months ago

I just completed day 8 and have enjoyed the neck stretches quite a bit. I was in a rear-end collision accident in November and still have very "crunchy" movement in my neck which I can feel and hear every time I turn my head. I am hopeful that continued practice of the neck stretches I've learned will ultimately provide smoother, less inflamed movement! Looking forward to the remainder of the 30-day challenge!

experiencing choppy videos
reishilibra 6 months ago

I have been doing the yoga challenge since the 1st of January and am almost done!! It's only been in the past few days that the videos have not been working for me. They are choppy, get stuck for minutes at a time, and I have tried to pause and load, but that doesn't work either....I will try to lower the resolution. I have been using this site for years and never had this problem! Also my netflix and other streaming sites work fine, so im not sure what the problem is :(

Besides that, I absolutely love doyogawithme.com and am so grateful to have these online classes available, as financially I cannot make it to studio classes right now. I don't know what I would do without this site! Forever Grateful <3

Re: choppy videos

Hi, there. Sorry about the videos pausing. It can be frustrating when you're in the middle of a class!
Have you tried using a different browser? That fixes the problem most of the time.
All the best,

Thank you so much for putting together the 30-day challenge. I wasn't looking for something like this in the new year, but I'm glad I happened upon it.

Day 3 of 30-Day Challenge...
Berkswell Bird 6 months ago

Another wonderful class. I love all the classes - they are so clear and easy to follow, without having to look up at the screen all the time to check if you're doing it right! Yet led in a calm, minimalist style with no unnecessary talking. DYWM class approach/style is why I got into yoga in the first place, many years ago - calm, experienced, genuine, uplifting. The 30-Day Challenge is such a great idea - it is getting me back into yoga practice after over a year's lapse, and having a class to practise every day is keeping me focused and on-track. Thank you, DYWM.

Thank you so much for the 30
clgangi 6 months ago

Thank you so much for the 30 day challenge. It was lovely to spend a part of each day just for me. I did the beginner challenge, but plan to do the intermediate challenge in the near future. I loved experiencing different teachers, different styles and trying out classes I never would have tried otherwise.

30-Day Yoga Challenge Feedback
David Procyshyn 6 months ago

I just want to take a moment to let everyone know that we appreciate this feedback. It's fantastic. We spent a lot of time carefully building this challenge in a way that we thought would create an amazing experience for you and we've been receiving a lot of positive feedback.

On another note, we have two programs that we are launching today that are great follow-ups to the 30-day challenge that you did, whether beginner or intermediate. So stay tuned!

Loved the Challenge!!!

Thanks for this year's challenge. I was able to stick with it every day and my practice is stronger and more authentic because of it. What an inspiration. This site has incredibly talented instructors and I am ever grateful to have them at my disposal at home, at work, on travel ... anywhere! It is truly a gift to my spirit.

Thanks!

I've so enjoyed the last 30 days and feel much stronger physically and mentally. I'm a bit lost now it's over. Perhaps i'll just start again from the beginning? :)

Amazing 30 day challenge -

Amazing 30 day challenge - thank you so much for taking the time to put this together for all of us yogi's - so kind. This website has been my higher power when in need.. I love it. I will repeat the beginner challenge starting today and hopefully work up to do the intermediate challenge! I can see more flexibility while doing the practise each day! Thank you again! I bow to you :)

Thank you!

The 30-day challenge was such a great way to start 2017. It was wonderful to try new classes and see the calm that regular practice has brought into my day. More than once I found unexpected tears as emotions and tension released during a pose, and as time went on I was able to find my smile more often during difficult poses. I am really grateful for this challenge, so thank you for putting it together and maintaining the website so we could use it.

Wonderful!

Thank you for this Challenge. For me, it has truly been transformative. I feel that I finally "get it" as to what yoga is all about. I now start my day with yoga. Not only is my mind calmer, but my mood is brighter and my body feels so much better. I can't believe how tight my body has been all these years. I've purchased one of your programs and look forward to actually using it. Through this Challenge, I learned that I do much better having a series of classes laid out for me, rather than cherry-picking ones. I was exposed to poses, sequences, and styles that I never would have tried otherwise, but they were so beneficial for me. Namaste!

Thank you

I have really enjoyed this 30 day challenge, trying out new teachers and styles of yoga. Thank for taking the time to put this together.

How incredible that these first 30 days of the year are already over. I did yoga every single day and often these minutes and hours were the highlight of my day. Sometimes it was hard to find the time but I was always so glad that I managed to take a break from the rest of life and just be on the mat. I am very grateful for this challenge and I will try to do the intermediate one now too, I feel ready for it.

THANK YOU!
Sarah NN3 6 months ago

The 30-day challenge has been a huge blessing for me. Thank you so much! I've been able to see just how wonderfully yoga can fit into my days, enriching my body and mind. This challenge has shown me how to fit yoga in on days when I would have thought there wasn't enough time.

Going forward, it would be super useful if you could add in the more descriptive levels as you have during the challenge (such as breaking intermediate down into gentle intermediate, intermediate, and challenging intermediate). That would make it much easier to decide which of your great videos to do an any given day.

I look forward to going back though and completing the few intermediate videos I missed in days when I felt the need to do the Beginners video instead. This challenge also gave me a few new great videos that I hadn't tried before. Again, thank you for the 30-day challenge!!

30 day challenge
Melissa W 6 months ago

This has been a fantastic way to start 2017, thank you. The daily email has really helped me to keep on track - I hope I can keep going without that prompt. Wonderful teachers and beautiful practices, though most poses named after birds or fish seemed to elude me - so far!

30 days of joy!
Ronne 6 months ago

Thank you so much for this challenge. I've just completed the last class with Fiji. It's been an absolute pleasure. I can't believe that I've achieved this. Every day I've come to the mat with a smile. I've challenged myself and have progressed in poses. Thank you to all the teachers for their grace and wisdom. Namaste.

Dennette 6 months ago

This challenge has been amazing. I am a little behind with your classes b/c I some days I attend classes and have my own home practice but have been doing asana everyday since Jan 2nd. The email reminder has been wonderful. The caliber of your teachers is top notch.... I wish you weren't so far away from me.

I just now started my 30 day
creek 6 months ago

I just now started my 30 day to get back into yoga after a long lazy stretch. I had to stop it 3/4 of the way through I was so annoyed. Melissa tends to run her sentences into one word so that I had to keep breaking pose to observe what she was doing. Doing any part of the routine on my knees is also impossible and I was not given an alternative. I did start by watching the video before beginning but it is an hour long and having to devote 2 hrs to a session is more than I can set aside. I'll just go back to David's beginner sessions for seniors where I belong. Oh well.

Thank you so much for
LisaBrez 6 months ago

Thank you so much for offering this, David. I fell off in the middle of the month due to travel, and now am back on practice. I'm so glad you'll leave this up to restart in February. Every day I feel better and better. Namaste!

Twisty twists and high kicks!
katfish 7 months ago

Christa is officially my new favourite instructor - until tomorrow :-) The 30 day challenge is so good for discovering new classes and instructors - I would never have picked this one out myself and now I want to do it everyday! Its also good to discover that its actually better to do a 15 class every day than a 90 min class twice a week. Thank you David for putting this together - wonderful!

Will This Section Remain?
Eyelids 7 months ago

Will the 30-Day Challenge be up for use past the 30 days? I have been excited to do this, but due to a training injury, I have just begun on day one and it's currently the 16th.

Continue after 30 days please!
nipper 7 months ago

Runner/cyclist in her 60s. In the past did sporadic doyogawithme on off days. This has been a revelation into how good you can feel doing yoga every day. I love the surprise of finding my new yoga class selected for me each day- I so look forward to it. Please continue after 30 days so we can look forward to a surprise in our lives- a good one!

30 day challenge
jeannecrane 7 months ago

Really enjoying the challenge. I was skeptical at first that I would be motivated to practice every day, but day 11 and every morning I am enthused to do the class. Also find that the consistency is allowing my old joints and muscles to move more freely and achieve poses I have avoided previously.

Thank you for this gift
Beli 7 months ago

I am really thankful for this challenge. I love trying different teachers, lengths, poses and styles every day, and I am trying to do both the intermediate and beginners levels every day when I can. It´s keeping me motivated and, although I have been following your classes for more than two years, I can already feel the difference that it´s making for my mind and body. I have also done Fiji´s 14 day a couple of times and enjoy it a lot as well, so thank you again.

Day 2 Intermediate
juliew16 7 months ago

Hello - I started the challenge late. I went to do day 2 intermediate - Tracey Noseworthy Love, Love, Love. It won't allow me to find it and it seems to have disappeared! I have done that class before and it's amazing but was wondering if anybody else was having this problem? Thanks in advance and thank you so much for providing this challenge x

all fixed

It seems to have come back = I kept getting the 403 forbidden message all afternoon but it has fixed itself!

Thank You!
chelsiecrook 7 months ago

I cannot thank you enough for this 30-day Challenge. Week one has left me feeling stronger, more calm, and ready for more. Today's workout almost didn't happen for me, but knowing there was a schedule to keep me made me find the time. I've been reminded again about the importance of making time for myself. Thank you for doing this!

Love!!
beccac 7 months ago

Loving these classes! Often have trouble working out what classes I should do and when so thank you for this challenge, it's great for keeping me on track!
I've never taken an official class - scarce to come by in Scotland - so I absolutely love your website, thank you so much for all you do and Namaste. <3

Loving the 30-day challenge
terriblemonde 7 months ago

I started a couple of days late, but am already feeling the benefits. I agree with some posters that it would be very helpful to have a way to mark off the classes I've taken and keep a personal log on my notes for the class. As I didn't start on the 1st, I can't just match the day to my calendar. Perhaps this is a feature you can add in the future to the paid subscription (understanding that enhancements cost money to develop).

Thanks for all that you do.

Loading Problems
DeeCoop 7 months ago

Sadly I may be unable to complete today's. I have never had problems with video's loading until yesterday's and today's Yesterday, I hit pause and within a minute was able to continue. Today at 12:42 this video stops and even with a 10 minute pause it won't work. Interrupts the flow and the mood so think i will just do the last pose on the other side to even out and call it quits on this one. Been using this site for a couple years now and this is the only time I've had problems with video :(

Loading problems: lower the video resolution
lindaswany 7 months ago

I experienced the same thing. I think DoYogaWithMe's servers are getting a lot of traffic, especially on the weekends and evenings. One thing that helped for me is to lower the resolution of the video and don't make it full screen.
Click the "HD" in the lower right of the video and select the lowest number, "270p".
Hope this helps!

Loading problem
David Procyshyn 7 months ago

I'm sorry to hear that. One thing you can do to ensure that the video plays through is pause the video at the beginning for a few minutes to allow it to load. You could also use a different browser next time. That often fixes the problem right away.

I just saw this challenge
jazzoul 7 months ago

I just saw this challenge since the email was sent to spam and I had not realized this. I wonder if I can still join and have acces to the last classes after January which would probably be the first week of February?

Challenge available after January

Absolutely. The 30-Day Challenge will be available after January.

Day 6 - Beginner
clgangi 7 months ago

Thank you for the 30 day challenge. My husband and I are doing it together, and we're really enjoying it. Loved today's class with Sarah-Jane. I teared up at the end, the release from the practice felt so good. Just what I needed today!
