Summer time is knockin’ on our door - and with it brings our 4th Annual Ashtanga Inspired Challenge! This year, you have the option to participate for 7, 14 or 21 days!
Consider how several consecutive days of yoga impact will impact you. What do you stand to gain by committing to something powerful? Would you like to be stronger in body, mind and spirit? Let your curiosity loose and say YES to this challenge! Be witness to the very noticeable ways that things begin to shift ... in your practice, your body, your life.
Whether you are new to the mat or a seasoned practitioner, this is an opportunity to experience the benefits of a consistent yoga practice with a group of people who are equally committed, each of us there to support one another.
Week ONE: We will practice a basic ashtanga sequence that will remain the same each day so that you are able to gauge and track your progress in each posture. Plenty of guidance and suggestions to modify each pose, making the practice accessible for every BODY.
Week TWO: You will be introduced to more advanced postures as an option to take your practice further; but the core practice remains the same. We’ll share short teachings on the ‘niyamas’ (self discipline, study, devotion), dig into various breath work practices and begin to intensify the practice for those who are ready.
Week THREE: Learn about the ‘yamas’ (code of conduct, on and off the mat). Advanced postures will be added to the sequence, giving you and opportunity to explore taking your practice to the next level. By this week, you will be strong and ready!
At the end of each daily practice, space will be available for those of you who would like to stay for meditation.
Sunday will be a rest day w/ optional homework.
If you cannot make it to the loft each day, you are encouraged to practice at home.

**Ashtanga Yoga, also called Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, is a vigorous and flowing style of yoga developed in the 20th century. It involves synchronizing breath with progressive and continuous postures, which produces internal heat while detoxifying the body. It builds strength, flexibility, and stamina, while calming the mind and improving overall health.
