10 Reasons to Participate in BYP’s 2018 Yoga Challenge
January 17 through February 17, 2018
- Feel stronger
- Gain flexibility
- Optimize weight
- Reduce stress
When you work with a group, or set a goal “publicly” it helps to keep our eye on the prize. Let us know what your goals are and we will check in with you as the days go by.
2. Feel the benefits of a regular yoga practice
Use this challenge to jump start a regular practice! The more you practice the better the results. 1-2x a week is maintenance. 3+ a week you will feel the benefits a lot quicker. Get stronger, more flexible and reduce stress. This practice will make you want to take care of your body more. Because guess what? If you don’t you will feel it on the mat. And that is okay. This practice is not about the postures but about how you feel outside of the yoga studio too!
3. Its a great way to get started
Even if you have just started with us you can join this challenge. Use these next 30 days (actually 32) to commit to the practice. Dive in. See what its all about. Try different times, different teachers, different classes and see how they feel in your body and mind when you practice FREQUENTLY.
4, Create a long term habit
Once you commit to the next month, you very well may realize that you love the way it makes you feel…and why would you want to stop feeling great?!
5. Be a part of a community
You will be working with a group of like-minded people with similar goals in mind. You will be able to see how everyone else is doing, share your frustrations, celebrate your victories…and hey, a little healthy competition isn’t a bad thing! Can you do this on your own? Of course you can, but your likelihood of success is amplified with just that bit of accountability and group dynamic!
6. Sleep better
7. Eat better
You will want to because when you don’t, you’ll feel it. With this challenge you will receive weekly nutritional emails to remind you to keep your body best fueled and optimized for this practice. At the end of the challenge you are invited to a 1 hour Nutrition Workshop with Nichole Gilman. She’ll give you tips and advice to feel your best and keep your momentum up.
8. Take time for yourself
You deserve to take time for yourself. And you may be surprised at how much more accomplished and focused you feel the rest of the day. You know the routine in an airplane: you put your oxygen mask on first before you help others! Same in life. Self care so you can be a better human in the world!
9. Feel accomplished
You know that great feeling you get when you cross something off your to-do list? There is just something about it! You will feel accomplished every time you get to check off another class that you have completed! You will be inspired by your own discipline.
10. Be a part of something bigger
People have been practicing yoga for a long time. By practicing yoga you are part of a long lineage of folks who have found that yoga will make you feel energized and gain self knowledge. It’s time tested. We know it works. You will too!
