Black Sheep Yoga's Summer 2017 Abhyasa Challenge is on! June 1-Sept 8th
 
We know summer can be the hardest time of year to keep up a yoga practice so WE are throwing a challenge at YOU: To keep showing up (or to get back) on your mat with us for our 2017 SUMMER ABHYASA CHALLENGE!

The heart of the Summer Challenge is Abahyasa: defined as a commitment to your yoga practice. A commitment to Discipline: a key element to living your best life!  

Our yoga challenges are always epic fun as you know…but we have come to realize that sometimes it is almost impossible to get 30 classes in 30 days so we are changing things up a bit. This summer we have created a challenge that is actually do-able on your terms!

CHALLENGE DETAILS:
We are giving you a 100 days (June 1-September 8th) to complete the challenge of your choice:

14 Classes (approx one class/week)

40 Classes (approx 3.5 classes/week)

50 Classes (approx 4 classes/week)

60 Classes in (5 classes/week)

All you have to do is pick your challenge and attend classes 🙂 It’s that easy! You can double/triple up on days if you choose. However, we encourage you to take some time to plan and schedule your yoga classes the same way you schedule other commitments in your life. Try to set a weekly schedule that you can commit to so that you are not cramming in several classes a day at the end of August when the challenge is winding down. The challenge is about finding discipline and balance so that we are not overworked and more stressed out.
