FREE New Year’s Yoga Challenge!

Have you resolved to start practicing Yoga regularly? Well, I can help! I’m offering a FREE six-week New Year’s Yoga Challenge starting Sunday, January 4, to help you commit to or sustain a daily home practice to supplement whatever classes you go to. With a maximum commitment of fifteen minutes per day, it’s totally doable for everyone!


  • a weekly email with a 7-10 minute asana (yoga poses) practice, a 3 minute breathing exercise, and a 2 minute meditation. I’ll also post Facebook and Twitter reminders, and an occasional inspirational blog post (optional reading).
  • personal weekly email check-ins to see how it’s going and allow you to ask questions
  • for every two weeks you complete, you receive one free yoga class with me or a participating colleague. (Posted below, more to come!) In the spirit of satya, the yogic virtue of truthfulness, we’ll operate on the honor system.  (You’re off the hook for the fifteen minute practice if you took a yoga class at any studio with any teacher that day.)


  • a sincere desire to establish a steady practice
  • no perfectionism!–just do your best


  • check in once a week by email to let me know how it’s going and if you have questions
