Whether you're a namaste-newbie or vinyasa-veteran, yoga challenges are exactly that: challenging. We've compiled some tips to help you get to day 30 of your challenge, successfully.
MAKE A SCHEDULE
Look at your studio's schedule and compare it to your life schedule. Dedicate one class per day that accommodates your schedule and stick to it. Some yoga studios have apps where you can pre-register for classes and hold you accountable for attending classes.
GRAB A BUDDY
Sign up for a yoga challenge with a friend who has similar goals and schedule as you. Not only will sharing the yoga challenge experience be fun, a buddy will hold you accountable.
INDULGE IN THE GOOD
Balance is key. We've just wrapped up the summer and after indulging - and sometimes overindulging- it's time to treat yourself to wholesome, nutritious foods. Organic fruits, veggies and smoothies are at the top of our list!
A new water bottle, PY yoga tank, or maybe a fun yoga mat can put an extra jump in your step. Treat yourself after a week into your challenge! Book a massage at the end of your challenge and use that as an incentive to complete your 30 days successfully.
GET YOUR Z's
Sleep is so important for your yoga practice- especially if you're planning on downward-dogging every day! Make your rest a priority and your mood, body, mind and practice will thank you.
