May Perfect Attendance Challenge
- Perfect attendance does not mean every day. Men need 25 days and women 22. (Women have three days rest at the beginning of their cycle.)
- You don’t have to do everything every day. The point of the challenge is to get you on the mat (almost) every day. If you need to do a shortened practice, that’s okay.
- To qualify practice the full amount of days, make one social post on any medium about the challenge and post a google or yelp review.
- Attend any or all of these events and the get two practice stars: Mantras & Mimosas, Volunteer at our table at HarlemEatUp! (email firstname.lastname@example.org for details) , attend Healing with Crystals workshop, or Saraswathi tour.
Students currently on a 3x weekly package may upgrade to an UNLIMITED for the challenge for just $10!
For me, the challenge has been a way to overcome my chronic self-doubt and to prove to myself that I can and should practice every day. What I did not anticipate is that the challenge has heightened my awareness — of my body through the poses and balancing, of how my body has changed with daily practice, and of how I am so much more at peace every day, even when my job is particularly stressful. I have more fortitude to meet other life challenges because of the yoga challenge. I also look forward to practice because in Land Yoga I have found a community of like-minded individuals who are doing what I am doing, who understand what I am experiencing, who face similar frustrations and breakthroughs and who have become friends through a mutual passion (especially during the challenges). – Anna D
What I’m feeling is the solidity of having a practice, a place to show up in regardless of where everything else is in life and to use that constant to help see what’s different and changing, kind of like a measuring stick for gauging where I am and how many possibilities I’m allowing in my life. I’m also feeling the surrender to how the practice and sometimes specific asanas affect me whether I am “trying” or not. I often go from jittery/sad at the beginning to surprisingly solid and present. It’s actually a bit unnerving for a “control” person to realize, whoa, maybe I’m not so much in control of this . . . . All good. – Jennifer S
