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!
