30 Day October 2016 Yoga & Meditation Challenge @ Yoga Kula Project, LLC
During the Challenge, our goal is to help each individual find a rhythm of daily yoga and meditation; however, each participant will set personal goals. For example, if you have an extremely busy schedule, your goal may be three sun salutations and 5 minutes of meditation daily. Whereas, another person’s goal may be one hour of yoga and one hour of mediation daily. All classes (Hot Pilates too!) in the studio are free during the month of October.
During the month, we will be exploring recent cutting-edge neuroscience of the brain and the positive effects that researchers are finding with those who have a daily yoga and meditation practice. Moreover, several styles of meditation will be introduced, so you can choose the type, or types, that work best for your needs. If you are unable to attend all six special sessions, do not worry; just do your best.
Additionally, you will have month long support with dietary issues. Also, ongoing information will be available to support you emotionally and assist you with yoga and meditation.
All materials will be provided. All you have to do is sign up, create your goals and show up.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Trudee @ firstname.lastname@example.org or 435 659 6950. Deadline to sign up: Sunday 9/25/16. You can sign up with Trudee in the studio or call to reserve your spot.

This spring and summer we are going to focus on core strengthening at the the studio. Joie is teaching a ‘Core Challenge’ class @ 11-noon, 5 Saturdays in a row, starting on April 18. Sunday mornings, starting in May, we will be offering a new class focusing on core; details to come. In preparation for the challenge, we will blog on what core strength is all about. The following is an excellent article written by the Canyon Ranch Reviewer:
“Many of us equate core strength with a flat belly or six-pack abs. And while those may be motivating goals to you, there are so many more benefits that come from improving core strength than how your midsection looks, including improved posture, better balance, reduced back pain and easier breathing.
Where is your core, exactly? If you pointed to somewhere around your navel, you’re partially right. Many people think the core consists only of the abdominals, but the core also includes your pelvic muscles, mid and lower back muscles, and even your hip muscles. All of these muscles work together to support your spine and skull.” ~Richard Butler, M.S., U.S.P.T.A.
