In the seniors challenge list of daily classes, where it says "Day 11's Class" it should be "Day 12's".

Guided meditation

I fell asleep after listening to David's relaxing voice the second time through. Thanks!

Day 6 Loving Kindness meditation

Wow, that was a real self reflection one. Thanks. Giving to and helping others is one thing, allowing yourself to open up is totally different. I may need to go back to that occasionally. ~Lisa

Day 8 part 2 there is no link?
basset mom 2 weeks ago

I have just finished the challenge on day 8 #1 and wanted to go on to #2 however there is no link. Day 10 also has not loaded? Please advise. Thank you.

Hi there. I'm not sure what you mean by #2 on day 8. There is only one video on that day. Also, the last day listed doesn't link to anything. It's there to show you what upcoming so you can prepare.

Program

I am new to yoga and over 60. Will this course help me learn yoga as a beginner? I attended a local beginner class yesterday and thought I would give up - it was so fast and hard. (I listed to Jennifer's sleep course and meditations often - but live in the USA)

Re: Program

Yes, absolutely. This challenge is designed to help a beginner learn how to do yoga in a way that is safe and most beneficial. If you start it, let me know how it goes!

Entering contest on the non video day
agilpwd 2 weeks ago

Is there any way that we can submit a contest entry on the days there is an audio meditation? I'm enjoying them, but there is no way to enter unless there is a video to view. (unless I'm missing something ) ~Lisa

Hi Lisa. No, unfortunately we are unable to add the 'enter contest' button to the days with only audio meditations. We will, however, take that into account when doing the draw.

Emails still coming a day late
Lorne 2 weeks ago

Hi David,

Your emails with a link to each day's practice arrive the following day on this side of the International Date Line in Japan. It's been that way since Day 1 when the Jan. 1 message arrived on Jan. 2:
from: Do Yoga With Me
reply-to: Do Yoga With Me
to: *|FNAME|*
date: Jan 2, 2019, 4:37 AM
subject: Day 1 - Back to Health 30-Day Yoga Challenge

Is there some adjustment you can make? I continue to go to the website to get the date-appropriate practice, but it would be nice to be able to click on the email link.

I am very happy to have risen to the yoga challenge for a week, and our little group's daily email check-in has grown to six people.

Blessings,
Lorne

Thanks, Lorne. I'll look into this and get back to you.

Received Day 2 at 2 a.m., but it's already Day 3 here in Tokyo
Lorne 2 weeks ago

Hi David,

I just noticed you're in Victoria. That's great. I'm from Vancouver and am here in Tokyo for at least the next two months. I'm doing the Yoga Challenge with four of my neighbours at Vancouver Cohousing, my permanent home. Tokyo is 17 hours ahead of PST. This morning at 2 a.m. I received the Day 2 email, but it's now almost 8 a.m. on Day 3. I can access the Day 3 class online but would appreciate getting the emails appropriate to my date.

I'm really enjoying the classes. And I'm happy you're offering modifications; I've also got tight hamstrings.

I just used the Preview function to see my comment. But I couldn't see how to get back to the Save function. Fortunately I had done a Select All/Save of the the content of my message. As well, why does it say Save rather than something like Submit?

All the best in 2019,
Lorne

Re: Received Day 2...
David Procyshyn 2 weeks ago

Hi Lorne.
Yes, we are in Victoria, BC, Canada! Nice to hear from you.
The emails are scheduled to come out daily - I'm wondering if it's possible that Day 3 went into your spam folder? Do you want to have a look?
If it happens again, as you said you can refer to this page. We will always have the next class up according to the earliest time zone, which is New Zealand.
In reference to making a comment - yes, that's a good point about the 'Save' button. I'll also test the Preview function to make sure it's working properly.
