And we’re back with 31 new classes and teachers I will indulge in at YYOGA. See below for times and days I intend to be present and join me for a breath along the way.
Last May I embarked on a personal 30 day Challenge simply called: Namaste.
As teachers especially full time teaching anywhere from 15-20+ every week- which is now my normal, personal practices can be shifted even if still kept in tact. I gained many benefits by taking NEW teachers classes who I have NOT previously taken a class from as this allows me to ‘educate and school’ myself as a pure student.
Yoga is all about willingness to recieve the offering and learnings regardless if they personally resonate within you or not, more about how you choose to interpret and integrate it for your own well being.
Therefore I have made a commitment to myself for the month of September that I will go a 2nd round of NEW classes and teachers and mix in some of my personal favorites that I’ve not been back to for quite awhile.
I invite all my fellow YYOGA peers and community to join me for any classes below and to build a community of receptivity, support and sheer passion for learning and education to their self practice.
These are a skeleton of intended days and times I plan to practice. Each class I take I will write a little blurb featuring ONE Takeaway and Appreciation about that teacher as in this community there could always be more recognition and acknowledgement for our service as a teacher.

Taking styles that you rarely or never attend and teachers who express their own natural love through practice is really profound and I highly encourage those interested to explore!
My schedule will depend on my own teaching schedule and subs however I will do my due diligence to attend the above classes over September and October.
I nominate you to also COPY and SHARE the challenge and add your own lists!
