Power Into 2022 Challenge
What You'll Experience
Jumpstart your new year with the Power into 2022 22 day yoga challenge from DoYogaWithMe.com
Enroll today and supercharge your New Year!
Our first week begins on Saturday Jan. 1, with the intention of establishing a strong foundation, a baseline to awaken to the midline and core connection.
Our second week introduces heat, and fire with a playful side. Building on week one with repetition of foundation, balance and core connection, we heat it up a little and challenge ourselves to play outside of our comfort zone.
And, our third week is Integration and Expansion! Pull it all together and courageously explore your own edge! See what you can discover on your own, looking at your practice with a curious eye.
Each week has been carefully architected to follow a similar pattern, this will enable you to grow sequentially throughout the challenge.
Day 16 :
A twisty class largely on your back with a few slightly more challenging poses - perfect for beginners.
Good class. Not as tough on arms as I feared.
Love Fiji’s instructions and class. Thank you
I liked the pace and the pauses.
It was pretty good. Challenging at a couple points though not overwhelmingly difficult and I got through it. Made for a very relaxing Shavasana! Thank you :)
My review is for this whole challenge and not for this class. I did the program for 2 weeks and decided to quit and start a different challenge. This challenge seemed like a yoyo incorporating many levels and did not keep me motivated. Even though I liked the individual classes, the whole challenge just did not match my individual physical needs for my lower back at this time.
Really terrific set of practices, with a wonderful variety of instructors. Thank you!
That was beautiful! Thank you Tracy!
Thank you. I have just finished the power into 2022 challenge and have loved it. Thank you to everyone involved in creating this challenge, and everyone involved in DoYogaWithMe - I am so happy that I can access all sorts of brilliant classes every day - so pleased I subscribed to this website 2 years ago after trialing the free classes for a few months.

Loved, Loved, Loved this challenge!!!
Loved it. Found it challenging but rewarding with excellent guidance.
Very nice start to my day. Thanks Fiji
Nice program to help you stay accountable with a daily Practice. I would say if you are used to longer yoga classes or been practicing for a while this is something you could do in addition to your daily routine.
Thank you for helping me to commit to myself.
Thank you, Tracy and all at DYWM, for creating and sharing this class and all the classes in this series. It has bee a joy to come to the mat and practice with you all. I have felt a huge shift over the course of the challenge. Very grateful for this opportunity. Peace and love ❤️.
If Pilates will help me look like Kathi, I’m in!
The overall aim of this class was great. It really clarified upper body engagement for m. It helped prevent some tension in my upper traps, which I have been struggling with in my practice lately. Thank you!
There were a couple spots where I could have used clearer instructions. First, during the one-legged dogs, I didn’t realize they were hip-openers. Second, I don’t know the yogic term for a yogic squat. I find it helpful when teachers describe it as a yogic squat
Amazing class. Felt energized and connected. Thank you Jonni-Lyn
Thank you to all the teachers who offered their voice and heart throughout this challenge. This was my first time fully completing a DYWM challenge and I look forward to jumping back in on the next one.
Clear instruction, gentle yet powerful poses and twists. Great energy from Melissa. Thank you!
This challenge pushed me into new experiences like restorative breathing and Pilates.I feel I would have benefited from an introductory/basics Pilates class before the challenging intermediate and advanced classes. I had to look at the screen constantly to follow instructions which strained my neck.The short class times (around 30 minutes) helped motivate me. Overall a great challenge and one I will definitely come back to!
A great series of classes that pushed me into some new territory.
A great way to start the new year. I especially liked the different teachers and styles in this challenge. It made me try classes that I would never have picked myself, which greatly expanded my (yoga)horizon. I am looking forward to try out more of these (for me) new things. Thank you for this fresh start into 2022!
thank you for doing this challenge to start the new year. It was just what I needed to get back into a daily practice. I really liked that you mixed different styles, especially adding pilates as I have been wanting more pilates classes and love the way Kathy teaches them. All the teachers were great. Thank you
Not a great connection from ur server today but I was determined ended up using my phone. Melissa’s instructions we so perfect I didn’t need to watch the movements. She also is wonderful at making the positions accessible and really made me feel better when she talked about her classes and how most people do not achieve the stretch sitting up most are on their backs. Thank u so much
It was a super way to start the new year with many challenging and fun practices.
Thank you DYWM, this was an amazing series. I was concerned about my ability to do it as a senior citizen and I am so delighted to have been able to move through an intermediate series. All of the instructors were wonderful and I grateful for alternatives and a gentle push here and there to something new. DYWM you have made an incredible difference in my life. Peace, health and stay safe all of you.
I just finished the 22 day challenge and loved it! I tried higher levels of classes than I ever attempted before and found that I enjoyed the challenge even if I wasn’t able to complete some of the poses. I loved the instructors and thought the mix between instructors and different styles and levels was great. Thank you for offering this challenge!
I notice there's quite a range of levels in the challenge.
Which is cool when you're on an intermediate level - to take it easy on some days. But I imagine it challenging for beginners not so intermediate students.
What's the overall concept for this range of classes?
Hi Melanie! You wrote this on my class as well so I reached out to Tracey (who helped develop the challenge) to get her input. Here is her answer from my wall -
Hi Melanie, thank you for your question. We wanted to offer the challenge to all levels and give students a wide variety of styles, challenge, rest and restore options along the way. We focused a little more on areas of the body on repeat days of the week and offered more of a deep rest day once a week. Encouragement from the teachers to guide the students to levels of physical practice based in breath, and to take the rest when necessary or desired. Tracey
Hope that helps! Melissa :)
This was the best 30 minute class! Loved some of the original moves ! Came in from a day on the mountain skiing and this practice took away all the kinks. Perfect. Thank you Crista!
Thanks for this class, but THANKS FOR ALL THE CHALLENGE it was so beautifully designed, well balanced, I will jump back again into it
I personally really dislike this challenge, which is way more "Exercise with asana" than real yoga. Classes have all this "scholastic" tone in their explanations which really annoys me.
On a positive note, it made me discover Kathi, which is really sweet! I'll keep her in mind for when I feel for pilates (which, at least, assumes itself as exercise and doesn't make cultural appropriation --- remember yoga is a spirituality, not an exercise. Adding a savasana and a "notice how you fell" or pranayama is not enough to make it spiritual)
If you want some tips to make better asanas, maybe that challenge is for you.
The challenge is certainly challenging,
Great class, thank you!
Loving this challenge so far. Great blend of classes and instructors!!
All my favourite teachers, and an exceptional slower flow pace! As a result, I’m far more attuned to my body and the rhythm of my breath. Yay! This challenge is helping me identify where body resists and where i can go further. It’s highly empowering - thank you, DYWM team!!!
Note that the Feel Stronger, Be Softer class is unavailable. All I get when I activate the link is a blank screen.
The link to the first class of week 2 is not working, I can link to the 2nd class but not the first
Same here (I mentioned this in the forums but am posting here too). If I recall, something similar happened briefly with Tracey's week 1, class 1 as well but when I tried later in the day, it loaded. I cannot seem to get Week 2, class 2 at all though. I've tried different devices, logging in and out, clearing caches, etc.
Just thought I'd add that if you go up to the "Practice" link at the top of the page and click, Tracey's class will come up at the top of the list and it will be playable. It's accessing it outside of the Challenge page/framework, but at least you can keep up.
It happened the same to me, I still can not go into day 9 and on. :(
I normally love every class, even paid while injured for a few months to show my support for the great work you do! But this challenge is difficult for me, I have a hard time accessing the classes, "feel stronger be softer " doesn't open at all and it's hard to navigate through the new layout especially from mobile.
And the very different levels and topics of the classes leave me by overdoing or getting distracted doing my own flow. I was hoping to get guided back to a more regular practice but this challenge is not for me 😔
What a beautiful challenge this has been. Thank you, DYWM! The hubby and I have given ourselves and 100 days of yoga challenge, so I’ll be redoing one of Fiji’s 14-day courses next. I am so grateful to all of you who make such amazing content available to us!
A warm, lovely, inviting practice for beginners. Melissa’s delivery is so gentle and caring.
Glad to return to my mat. Enjoyed the class.
I suspect I’ll be feeling this workout tomorrow in places I don’t usually. It was a good challenge for someone who has never done Pilates. I put screen to the side so I didn’t have trouble following cues and peeking over to see if I was doing it right.
I am finding it difficult to access each class. Previous challenges have included a link to each class in the daily email reminder. It would be super helpful if that was the same for this challenge.
Fiji’s classes are always powerful ones. I enjoy the challenge. I needed to do a bit of stretching before hand to warm the body up a bit before I jumped into this one.
