Yoga Challenge

In 6 days I will open the 3rd Annual Yoga Challenge at my studio.  I’m getting excited.  Every day I go to my mailbox and tons of envelopes fall out.  (I’ve asked people to register by mail this year.)  So far, 45 people are registered.  (I’m taking 60.)

Lots of people are talking about it, planning their schedules around it, worrying about how they’ll be able to get up that early in the morning, or how they’ll get the kids fed so they can come after work.

Some people are disappointed they can’t do it either because they live too far, or for other strategic reasons. So I’m thinking of doing a “virtual challenge” here on this blog.  I would set up a practice plan for each week and people would be on the honor system to do their practice.  Each day they would “check in” here by placing a short “comment’ in the box after that day’s entry.

I am also planning to blog and post pictures about the Challenge here every day in April. (Currently I only post 5 days a week, but during the Challenge I will be posting every day.)

The prospect of all this is making me feel excited (and a little scared, too) because I am also training for a half marathon during April (the event is May 1st) and the Challenge has me teaching 3 classes a day.  It’s all going to be about “energy management.”

Yeah. What’s not?

(heh)

I’m a small town yoga teacher who says motherfucker a lot. I hate anything woo. I’m into neuroscience. And facts. I’ll lead the chanting of “om” sometimes, but it makes me feel awkward. I want to access flow states. As far as yoga helps me do that, I’m into it. Dopamine is my fave neurotransmitter. Don’t tell anyone I told you this.

  1. Kath, I’m up for this! Your breathing workshop yesterday at Zee’s was fantastic, and I woke up this morning feeling so energized to start my creative day. Thank you for the gift of guided breathing!
