'When you do something beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.' - John Lennon
We invite you to observe the sunrise and practice with us each morning for 21 days between 7 and 27 August 2017.
Mornings are the most powerful time to practice yoga. We salute the sun in the morning to tap into the natural rhythms of the world around us, and in turn, our own internal rhythms. This is the time to set you up for your day, clear out the 'fuzz' that builds up in our systems overnight, stimulate your immune system, feel mentally clear and stoke your agni (digestive fire) .
Shake off the winter hibernation blues and feel the rush of being up early, moving through the day with clarity and warmth in your bones while the rest of the world slowly catches up! This is a great time to get back into good habits so you can get to Spring firing on all cylinders!
All participants will be rewarded and we will have weekly prizes as well as one HUGE prize for the 'winner'. Of course, you are all winners, but this time we will be rewarding those of you that really stick to your goals and embrace the challenge.
Over the course of the 21 Day period, you are welcome to practice every morning at the studio and observe the transformation that takes place in your mind and body from this regular practice.
All participants will be provided with a 21 Day Challenge Guide to help set their intentions for the period and track their progress during the challenge. There will also be an Accountability Board at the studio, so that you can feel the satisfaction of ticking your name off each morning (trust us, it is really satisfying!)
Of course, for many of us, a daily practice is not only daunting, but impossible! Every person is on a different path, so you are welcome to set the challenge that is both realistic for you and serves your individual needs. You do not need to attend every day to be in the running to win prizes. Prizes will be awarded to participants that follow through with their own intentions and achieve their personal goals.
You are also welcome to supplement your practice in the studio with a short 15 minute practice at home, or if it serves you, take a rest day! This is an opportunity to learn about your body and the power of intention and nourish yourself each morning.
Any student is welcome to participate. Details of what passes are required are set out below but you must register to be in the running. If you choose to purchase a Morning Challenge Pass, you will have access to all weekday 0600/0630/0730 am classes, as well as 0800 and 1000 am classes on weekends.
We note that the challenge is open to all morning classes across both studios. To keep things streamlined, there will only be one accountability board at Tonic HQ.
What does it cost?
If would like to participate, you can purchase a pass that gives you unlimited access to our morning classes over the 21 Day period. You only need to attend 2 times a week to make this pass great value. If you purchase this pass, you will have access to all weekday 0600/0630/0730 am classes, as well as 0800 and 1000 am classes on weekends. This pass will not give any access to lunchtime or evening classes.
