Announcement | May 04, 2018

The “18 in 18” Challenge is entering its fifth month, and we’ve still got several yogis with their eyes on the prize(s)! And they are good ones!

But the best prize of all is the satisfaction of maintaining a consistent and regular practice. It’s an amazing achievement!

So if you’ve fallen a little short for a month or more, there is plenty of time to catch up! Several of you are well within reach of getting on track to finish the year with 216 classes!
