Good Morning Yogis! Also, welcome to our 30 Day Intro Challenge new Yogis! We are starting another 30 Day Intro Challenge for August. Typically we start Saturday with Resolutions / Intention Settings. If you have been with us since January and our last Challenge, please consider revisiting your intentions and resolutions for the year, since we are at the 1/3 point of 2021.
New & Intro Challenge Yogis – Please navigate to our intro weekend posts below!
00 Birthday/New Year Resolution
0 Ashtanga – The 8 Limbs of Yoga (must read!)
We are also at the end of a special Santosha and Mindfulness Summer Fun Month to align with July’s Anti-Boredom Month. To align with the start of our Yoga Challenge, our final summer fun / flow practice is Yoga and Exercise!
Check out this month’s Introduction for more on mindfulness, flow, and Tea Ceremony – my recommended substitute practice for any suggested daily Fun Practice this month you do not want to try. We will have 31 different practices and activities to at minimum beat boredom for Anti-Boredom Month, and hopefully help you experience a flow state.
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to set our Intentions or any Resolutions for August, and practice Asana or another exercise of your choice. Our daily practices will stay synced up with our 30 Day Challenge Group throughout the month. If this is not your first month of Daily Yogi, consider setting an intention for yourself for this month, or keeping another daily Yoga practice (ie Asanas, Pranayama, or Meditation) that is meaningful to you! I am continuing to focus on my daily Asana practice from April into this month, and I have maintained night-time meditations to fall and stay asleep. I am really trying to keep my Hydration habit for the year, and am working at sticking to morning and evening self-care routines I have set for myself and modified as the year has progressed.
Next INTRO CHALLENGE May 2023
Please comment if you would like to share your intentions or your own personal bonus daily yoga practice for this month. Stay tuned for our review of the 8 Limbs of Yoga tomorrow, and our first positive practice from the Yoga Sutras on Monday – we will stay synced up with our 30 Day Challenge Group throughout the month of August! Always remember, be kind!

I want to keep some of my mindful / anti boredom tasks I’ve found interesting on the forefront of down time -a propriety.
I’d also like to keep on my kick of moving my body daily, walking or exercising. It really does wonders for your mind!
Also let’s be honest -everyone’s water intake should increase!
Finally -less stress!
You and me both on the water, ah! Thanks for the reminder again before our Ayurveda day later this month 🙂
