About this program

Challenges have long since been the rage in studios. And while we love the benefits of a frequent, consistent, mindful practice, it’s been a long time since we’ve hosted a challenge. If you’ve never done one, they are often motivational mechanisms to encourage practitioners to increase their frequency. How does it work? Usually — not kidding — it’s a sticker chart. Yes, even adults are motivated my stickers. There is truly something so satisfying about placing a sticker on a chart after every successful effort of simply making it to the mat. As we all know, life sometimes tempts us not to prioritize our own self-care. And so when we make it and we have the visual satisfaction of seeing our stickers on the chart, plus, we also feel better because we are practicing more, it’s really quite awesome. And so this is the nature of the yoga studio challenge. 

A sticker chart. 

But I’ve never been one to do things the “usual” way. And so, when I’ve hosted challenges that I genuinely enjoy in the past, they are about a deeper mission — namely, I like to share the knowledge that I’ve come across that is making a significant impact on my life. And so you have it — our latest challenge. 

We’re calling it: The Bliss Revolution. And it is about the koshas, the 5 sheaths or dimensions of our body, as taught via the yogi masters. There are many levels to this challenge.

The bare minimum level is the sticker chart level. You pay $35. 50% of this contribution goes to American Red Cross for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. This is a 5-week challenge. Each time you come to class in this five weeks, you get to put a sticker on the chart. From there, if you want to go deeper in your studies, each week will be based upon a specific kosha.

And each week, we will offer you the option of participating in a workshop, a daily email program where we send you relevant, helpful information to help you become more acquainted with the kosha of focus, and a daily meditation class. (Note: week one, food body week, we will also offer a cleanse for you to purchase – more details follow).
