I am what you might call consistently inconsistent when it comes to maintaining my yoga practice over the past two decades. I had a fairly robust practice going for the past couple of years until the Pandemic hit last March 2020 and for some reason (Shock? Sadness? Loss?) it came to an abrupt halt until 14 days ago when I decided I needed to turn this behavior around. Being a professor, teaching on Zoom countless hours in a day, has left my body in shambles. Your challenge, Guy, was the perfect tonic to kick start me into a daily yoga practice – gentle enough to allow my body to remember how to move, yet challenging me to understand my weak points—all the while respecting life as a beginner again—baby steps on the mat. I followed with focus, not missing a day and found the inspiration to sign up for another challenge. Thank you so much, David, for such a brilliant program! You have such excellent teachers with deep heart. I hold so much gratitude.

I am sad this is over! It is a wonderful 2 week series. Guy, I am going to join you in many more classes here. Thank you!

I did enjoy this challenge. I am not a beginner but sometimes it's good to review the basics! I especially liked the short class on transitions. I hadn't thought of transitioning in just that way before.

Really enjoyed these classes and the instructor. I will be revisiting some of the classes.

Thanks for this well-planned, comprehensive series, Guy. I got through most of the lessons, but the seated forward folds were far beyond my flexibility range. With my butt raised 5 or 6 inches off the mat, just sitting upright produces an intense stretch. If you remake any of the lessons in this series, please consider suggesting adaptations for those of us who don't bend forward.

Thank you Guy, my partner and I just completed the 14 day challenge during lockdown in Scotland, although it took us 2 months! For relative novices your classes are great and we love your relaxed and easy style that gives us confidence to try the pose and not worry about getting it wrong!

I've just concluded the challenge – I moved here after finishing "Basics and Beyond", which I had greatly enjoyed, and I am glad to report that I enjoyed this one , too! As someone said in the comments to the "Yang to Yin" video, "I loved holding the poses long enough to experience them fully". As much as I like a good flow, I find that spending more time in a certain pose is more useful at this stage of my practice. I also appreciated the repetition offered in certain sequences, like on Day 7. It was new to me, and had a very good effect.
Thanks a lot Guy and DYWM! Now on to Rachel's 7 day challenge.

Up until 4+ years ago I was a decades long active yogi. A herniated disk put a kink in my practice. I recently joined doyogawithme as an aid to reestablishing my home practice. Beginning with Guy Friswell’s 14 Day Challenge has proven the right choice. I knew I needed to start with a beginner’s mind and this challenge provides the perfect vehicle to identify what changes happen when one transitions from 65 to 70, what remains possible, what requires adaptation. I feel I have the impetus and tools to proceed to reignite my home practice. Kudos, thanks and Namaste...Stephen
