It's -11F (and -26 with the windchill)? Let's stay inside and do some yoga!
Did you make any goals for the new year? I have several, and one of them is to do more yoga. When I took Marianne Elliott's 30 Days of Yoga: A Lifetime of Well-Being back in 2012, it truly changed my life. And when I took the course again last fall, it was exactly what I needed.
The next session starts January 13th with a week of preparatory lessons, and then the actual 30 days begin on January 20th. Registration is open now.
Have you been wanting to try yoga, or wishing you could establish (or reestablish) a regular yoga practice at home? 30 Days of Yoga brings the benefits of a yoga class into your own home. It's about making a small but significant change to your regular daily routines.
I won't be officially taking the course this time around, but in order to help get my own home yoga practice back on track, I'll be following along with my course e-book and checking in with the private 30 Days of Yoga Facebook group. (My daily practice got derailed while I was ending the year with a beautiful 40 Day Global Sadhana, which I never would have known about if it weren't for 30 Days of Yoga and did manage to do for most of the 40 days.)
Each course includes daily e-mails and weekly live group call coaching sessions with Marianne, plus additional special practices, access to an easy to navigate course site, support (and new friends!) from around the world in the private 30 Days of Yoga Facebook group, and an e-book containing all the written materials from the course.
Want a peek at Marianne's teaching style before you sign up? Just go to the standard, beginner, or busy course description pages (see links above) and scroll down for a link to three free sample videos, including the now famous Yoga for Bloggers and Writers, which I do all the time.
Marianne says that home yoga is where you begin to rebuild your own trust in yourself, your body and your innate wisdom—and very little is more important, and more powerful, than that. I totally agree. Yoga also helps us sleep better, improves our capacity to manage stress, increases our physical health, strength and flexibility, and even improves heart health.
Here's to a joyful, peaceful, yoga-filled new year.
