I'm taking the OM Yoga Challenge

I cannot hide my excitement - I am an out and proud OM yoga fanatic! If I had to name my guru, Cyndi Lee would be it. Her style of hatha vinyasa flow yoga is what I base all my teachings around and I am always jumping on the OM Yoga site to be inspired and re-energised.
Cyndi Lee and OM Yoga, for me, is what yoga is about - fun, colourful, spiritual, energising and open. And when I saw the OM Yoga Challenge happening this October in her New York studio, I was tempted to join in - from the other side of the world :) 30 classes in 30 days - can you imagine how balanced and alive you would feel after that??!

But like many of my plans, I thought about it, got excited, and promptly lost enthusiasm... that is until I was reading Mary's blog and see that SHE IS DOING THE CHALLENGE TOO! Yay! So really, it's meant to be :)
So I'm starting the challenge tomorrow with the New York OM'mers. And it is perfect timing, because there's a new yoga and pilates studio opening in Broadway (NSW) this long weekend and they've got a free open day with classes running all day long!
The idea of the Om Yoga Challenge this October 2-31:

"Come to a yoga class every single day for 30 days -- it can be any class from advanced to restorative to gentle/basics. The point is to show up and practice with others. This creates a two-pronged approach to our practice -- we are dedicating time and energy toward our own benefit as well as to others. By breathing together, showing up whether we are tired or in a bad mood, making a commitment to share quiet time and space together -- this is a concrete way to share the dedication of your practice with others."

Stay tuned for the updates - and thanks Mary for kicking my butt into gear! Look forward to sharing the journey with you xx

Whoo hoo, another person down under taking on the challenge! Would love to hear what the new yoga/pilates place is like and anytime you want to go to a class together in the evenings during the week or on the weekend, give me a bell. I'll send you an email to let you know what nights/times I am free and I am making sure I am free for this challenge. This is the month to be focused and not be "too" busy.

Whoo hoo, so glad you're doing it too!!
