A Marvelous March Yoga Challenge!

24th

Guys. I’m so excited to share this with you, I just can’t even deal. I hope you’re sitting down.

If you follow me on instagram, you may have already seen the news. But…

#sweathappywithyoga March challenge

I’m co-hosting a yoga challenge in March with Paige and Erin!!

I have been participating in challenges since December, and it’s been amazing for my practice. It’s made me more consistent, and it’s pushed me to try poses I never thought were possible.

I daydreamed about hosting my own challenge, but I never thought I really would. I was too insecure and self-conscious and generally terrified. Then this happened:

A daydream come true! After some fast and furious planning – deciding on a theme, choosing poses, finding sponsors, and planning outreach – the challenge was born: #sweathappywithyoga. And we would LOVE to have you join us!!!

How it works

If you’ve never done an instagram yoga challenge before, here is how it works. There will be a new pose each day that one of us will post the night before. To participate, you post a picture of your best attempt at the pose tagging each of us and using #sweathappywithyoga. That’s it! Easy right?

Unlike a lot of the yoga challenges on ig, ours is targeted more to beginners and intermediates. There will be a few more challenging postures, but one of us will always post a beginner variation to keep the challenge truly accessible to all levels.

Goal of the challenge

Spring is a time of renewal and new beginnings, making it the perfect time to start practicing yoga or recommit to a regular practice. Our goal is to encourage a daily practice, no matter the level and no matter how short. As I talked about in my guest post for Amy, advanced poses are fun, but yoga doesn’t have to be complicated to change your life. Simple poses are often the most powerful.

Yoga also doesn’t have to be an enormous time commitment. For years I rarely practiced for more than 30 minutes, and I frequently practiced for only 15 minutes once a week, but the physical, mental, and emotional benefits were still enormous. Even five minutes a day can change your life. So whether you are just getting started or are looking to rededicate yourself, this challenge is perfect for you. 🙂

Rules and sponsors

All the rules are laid out in detail here on instagram, and we will continue to share them as the challenge gets closer, so I won’t go into them here. Everyone is welcome to participate, the rules are just important if you want to be eligible for prizes. 🙂

Speaking of prizes, we are still hoping to get more, but for now, we have two fabulous sponsors. The shop SuperLoveTees (that I posted about recently) is providing one of their awesome tanks for a winner, and The Zen Muse is offering this gorgeous necklace.

I’m seriously so excited about this challenge and I hope some of my lovely readers will join in! Here are the links you need to follow me, Paige, and Erin on insta to get started!

Since this challenge is all kinds of marvelous, I’m linking up with Katie <3

Questions: So, are you joining us or what?? You know you want to!! 🙂 If not, I guess you can tell me about something else marvelous in your life. 😉 [P.S. I’m behind on responding to comments again, but I promise I’ve read and loved them all and will be responding sooooon. xo]

    Maaaaannn! You guys make me feel like a yoga fail! hahahaha It is my own fault, because of my running I cannot commit as much as I would like, but I am in awe of you! So impressive, and someday I hope to join you! I will be with you in spirit, and like I told Erin, I will be trying to improve my yoga poses at home, while going to a weekly hot yoga.

      Not at all! You’re a superstar athlete, I’m in awe of your running! And you’re way more elite in your running than I am in yoga 😛 Glad you will be there in spirit!

      Definitely! I could literally never do any of these until a couple months ago, and I’m still working on them (and probably always will be). One of the things I love about yoga is that you can always go further and deeper in a pose. 🙂
