Thirty Yoga Classes in Thirty Days

Santa Monica's own ONLINE yoga studio, YogaGlo, has just launched a challenge: Thirty Yoga Classes in Thirty Days.  There are no rules, other than setting your intention to practice yoga for thirty consecutive days.  That means any kind of yoga, anywhere, for any length of time.  I'm in! Join me!

Here is what their website says:

Several YogaGlo members reached out to us in September stating they wanted to start a 30:30 challenge in October and asked us to help point them toward some classes that might be good to take during that time. That got us thinking, which got us asking you all yesterday if you’d like to join in, which led to many of you saying yes!

There were quite a few questions about how this could work, what the rules were and how it would all be tracked so you’re accountable. The beauty of our impromptu 30:30 is that there are no rules other than setting your intention to practice yoga for thirty consecutive days.

Here are some ways it could work, but it’s all up to you:
  • Classes: You can take classes on YogaGlo (lots of styles, many durations and frankly, you may want a 5-min desk yoga on day twenty-six!), at your local studio, make up your own at home or mix it up and do a combination of all three. It’s up to you.
  • Tracking: For YogaGlo members, you can use the Track Your Practice feature under My Account. Every time you take a class on YogaGlo, the time is automatically added to your monthly class total. If you take a class offline, you can easily add it to the monthly calendar by selecting Add Practice. For non-YogaGlo members, you can sign-up for the 15-day free trial if you’d like access to most classes and the ability to track part of your 30:30 challenge with us. Or, you can use this printout of our Track Your Yoga Practice feature to stay on track.
  • Accountability: A few of you expressed concern that you needed a check-in of some sort to make sure you stay motivated throughout the 30:30. We’ll be checking in daily on this blog. We’ll share a class of the day and will do a shout-out to you all so you can check-in on your progress in the comments. This will give you a daily reminder and will also allow you to meet other yogis that have taken up the challenge so you can share your joys,  challenges and insights along the way.
Today is the first day of the challenge. Are you ready? On your mat, get set, go…
