time for a revolution

yoga challenge - 40 days of yoga - yoga

Let’s skip over the part where I talk about the indulgences of the holiday season and cliches about fresh starts: 2013 is almost here and a lot of us are looking for a meaningful way to start the new year. Enter: the Digital 40 Days program by Baron Baptiste. Move over, resolutions. It’s time for a revolution!

what is it?

Digital 40 Days goes from Jan. 7 - Feb. 15, 2013, and is a companion program to Baron’s book, 40 Days to Personal Revolution. Basically, you get your yoga on in whichever way works for you: your favourite studio, home practice, these yoga videos, or the podcasts that come with the program. Digital 40 Days provides:

- the structure
- the community
- the support
- resources including podcasts, emails, and meditations.

It doesn’t cost anything to join the program but there is an option to upgrade for a few extra advantages.

the good, the bad, the ugly?

Doing anything for 40 days is guaranteed to create a change, shift, or insight in some capacity, so we’ve got weekly contributors from across lululemon to recap their experience each Tuesday (starting Jan. 15) and tell it like it is.

Finally, here are a few questions we asked Baron Baptiste about the program:

why 40 days?

Forty days is the time it takes to build an entirely new set of habits and practices to train and rewire your mind and body. This program is built from a foundation of commitment and is designed to create, piece by piece, new practices and commitments that propel you into lasting transformation of your body and your life.

what are potential outcomes of participating in this challenge?

The outcomes of this program are very specific to each individual. It will strengthen, open and cleanse your body, clear your mind and change your relationship to food in a way that creates whole-life health instead of quick fixes. You'll learn how to get out of the trap of trying to find the time for the things that matter most to you, and start making the time and being the change.

what happens if I fall off the wagon?

I often tell my students that it doesn't matter how many times you fall, it's about calmly and kindly getting back up each and every time that makes all the difference. Part of this program is that (much like your day-to-day life) it will present you with many opportunities to jump ship... "I had a stressful day today and don't want to meditate for 5 minutes" or "I don't have the time today for yoga practice or to make myself something for dinner." The good news is this is where the personal revolution occurs: you'll be on the lookout for these kinds of disempowering thoughts and attitudes and experience the power of choosing your next action.
If you 'fall off the wagon', simply get back on.

I signed up for the challenge but am sad to find that there is “required” reading of having to purchase the book “40 Days to Personal Revolution by Baron Baptiste”.

Comment by Rebecca Garcia — January 2, 2013 @ 10:44 am

Hi Rebecca, I checked with our friends at Baptiste Yoga and it is absolutely possible to do the digital 40 days without the book, so please don’t let that be a deterrent from participating. I bought the book a few years ago and found it a really valuable resource if you do decide to pick it up. :)

Just signed up for the digital one and excited! Also bought the book. I am doing a different 40 day one with a Baptiste type studio in Santa Barbara so they will run concurrently and will be interesting to see how they work together.
Thanks for the post!

Excited! Signed up this afternoon, and am looking forward to using the book to help me stay connected where I’ve fallen off the wagon of other yoga challenges. I think the reading component will give me a boost. Well, that and keeping up with the hashtags! :) Thanks for the recommendation, Lulu!

Began the revolution last night, however had difficulty following instructions for single legged boat. The meditation was incredible, and I am hoping to grow into the practice over this week. Exciting!
