The year is slip sliding away & rather than dread the winter, we want to slide right into it! Sliding is a fun way to add variety to your fitness practice. Adding instability creates the strength to stabilize! Each day your hosts will pick a Sliding Drill & will show you how to do it! Check all the hosts for their beginner through advanced variations! No sliders? No problem! You don’t need special equipment, you can use washcloths, paper plates, or a variety of other tools we will show!

Wrapping any pose into eagle legs is challenging, fun and very pretty! So we want to present a challenge based on doing eagle legs in a variety of poses. Each host will present a variant on the given pose and participants can copy or come up with their own fun and unique idea. A wide array of poses will be presented to create an inclusive and supportive challenge, allowing participants to express themselves and show their individual styles and levels of practice. We want to appeal to all levels and make this challenge fun and accessible to everyone.

In yoga, we all have our fave poses—the ones we absolutely love to practice all the time and feel comfortable in. Maybe they come effortlessly, or just feel amazing. Then on the flip side, we also have those poses we typically find challenging and tend to avoid. Some might call those our nemesis asanas—the ones we say we don’t like. But in order for us to grow and progress in our practice, it’s important to work on both the asanas we feel comfortable in and love, as well as those we find more challenging and difficult. So join us on this 8 day journey, as we work on the asanas we absolutely love, as well as those we also find more challenging. Let’s try to find a lovely balance, and not shy away from movements we need to put more work into. As everyone’s practice is individual to them, this challenge is all about choices. We’ll provide the theme for the day and you decide which pose is your fave, and which you need to work on. In the end of the day, we find so much growth in being challenged! Challenge open to all levels and abilities. Props and modifications are welcome.

It’s time to think outside the box.

It’s time to get creative and use these props to achieve the poses you want!

During 10 days we will explore different kinds of handstands, specifically how to move into and between them. We will offer the postures everyday, and the participants are free to choose any variation they like and add a few words or tutorial. This challenge is unique, in that it is set up as a game! The starting point will be a straight handstand and each day we will add one movement until we have a sum of 10 movements. Option 1: Take each transition a part in each day. Option 2: Reversing everything each day and changing gaze.

"I've decided to make myself strong. As far as I can tell, that's all I can do." - Haruki Marakumi. Being strong has a variety of meanings that go beyond the simple, pure physical strength. I am strong when I am not looking anywhere else than within myself to find joy, happiness, peace; I am, also, strong when I choose to be alone rather than with the wrong person: what does being strong mean to you? Yoga can help us become stronger human beings on the physical, mental and emotional level: it quite often pushes us to work in uncomfortable zones and overcoming that feeling of discomfort is the key of growing stronger. The ability to concentrate and remove distractions from the mind is, also, a powerful tool to achieve mental and emotional strength. Let's explore together what being strong means and how yoga can give us the tools to achieve physical, mental and emotional strength.

According to ancient yogic sutras, there is a divine masculine energy taking the form of Shiva and a divine feminine energy taking the form of a goddess, Shakti. Men or women, each one of us has Shiva and Shakti aspects to our being. We hold these energies within us and, when united, gives a complete balance, joy and presence within our very being. Shiva or Shakti are not superior nor inferior to each other. In fact, union of these two divine forces completes a human being and our existence.

Fall, a transitional season as the heat of the summer dies down and the weather starts becoming cooler, is typically considered to be a time of the year where we turn inward. Animals begin to prepare for hibernation and, in the same way, human beings too begin to prepare for the winter. The days become shorter, the nights longer, the leaves of the trees turn yellow and eventually fall. Human beings are part of nature and it’s only natural that these changes would affect us in some way. In Ayurveda, fall is the time of Vata dosha, which in excess may cause imbalances such as anxiety, lack of focus, and restlessness. Through this challenge we would like to offer space for participants to focus inside and nourish their bodies and soul in self care practices and asanas to support their overall wellbeing, sustain their health, and enjoy the beauty of this wonderful season.

This year has been quite different for a lot of us. Lots of change and sometimes it’s hard to see the good. Let’s take this time especially now to pause and reflect on everything that we have, that we can be grateful for and see the beauty that surrounds us. There is always, always something to be thankful for. Sometimes we just have to dig deeper to find it. So join us for 8 days filled with gratitude. Remember you can share as much or as little with us. This is all about being comfortable in your practice and with yourself.

Everything in our universe is radiating energy, from the biggest mountain or ocean, to the tiniest blade of grass and to each individual cell in our body. All of our cells emit energy in different ways, and different cells will emit different kinds of energy depending on where they are located within the body and what their job is. Chakras are the several different channels located on the key points of the body through which energy can flow in and out in a constant stream. It should come as no surprise, then, that given the specialized nature of your body’s energy. Keeping our chakras open and our energy flowing is fundamental for wellbeing, as well as physical, emotional and spiritual. A practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment, fostering a belief that positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything.

Instead of highlighting only our strengths, we will be opening our hearts to being vulnerable, learning to be free from judgment by others and, most importantly, by ourselves.

The end of November is a time for transitions. As we transition between seasons, we take this time to prepare for the upcoming changes - whether it’s slowing down for Winter or an excitement in the air for Summer. Likewise, we should pay attention to the transitions between asanas. Often times we can muddle through and not give our transitions the full attention they deserve. Transitions help us to prepare and set up the foundation for the next pose. So let’s give some love to transition poses. For each day of this challenge we have listed 3 poses at different levels - the middle one being the transition. You’re welcome to do all three or just one. Please listen to your body and take variations wherever you need to.

Autumn is the season of deep transformation, as nature is moving into the phase of slowing down and hibernation. As humans, we also need to learn to take this time to preserve energy, self-reflect and make time to internalise things.
