One student’s journey through the 30 day challenge

I’ll be honest, after my first Challenge in November 2015, I felt like I’d been mixed up in a blender along with lots of sweaty yoga pants and towels. On November 30th, 2015, I didn’t think I’d ever do another Challenge because, geez, it’s hard for so many reasons!
I’ll admit, I’m an introvert by nature. I’m happy to show up, do my thing, and then go home. Social situations like the end of challenge potluck we had that year are overwhelming for me sometimes. So as we got into October 2016 and the buzz began about November’s challenge, I had firmly decided that I wouldn’t be participating.

Be Peace: One Yogi’s Journey to Slowing Down

On Friday April 24, 2014, I smashed my 2009 Volkswagen Passat into a concrete pole. All by myself. On a deserted city street. I hit the pole hard enough that it shattered. Chunks of concrete flew through the air and rained down on my car—smashing the windshield, and leaving no panel without a dent. Three… More details
