Welcome New Yogis! (Been here before? Jump to First 30 Days Yoga Challenge)
Whether you are starting Daily Yogi at the beginning with an introduction to the Yoga Sutras and 8 Limbs of Yoga (Ashtanga), starting a 30 Day Yoga Challenge, or completing our first full 6 months of Daily Yogi practices…you are in the right place to start at the beginning with Day 1!
Set yourself up for Success
We are so glad to have you start this journey to a better you! Please consider registering to join our Daily Yogi Groups, and also starting your 30 Day Yoga Challenge with a group. Above all, having an accountability buddy or group improves success rates for all!
Tools – Checklists, Calendars, App
In addition, we have a few tools to help you get started and track your progress, including printable calendars or checklists, and our Daily Yogi App. So, when you are ready, please join us over in Daily Yogi Today and sync up with our current daily Positive Practices!
Register for custom monthly calendar and emails
I strongly recommend signing up here to get our custom calendar and checklist for the month (we often change things around for Sitali and Asana days around the 20th) – you can also get daily reminder emails for quick access to the practice of the day starting when our challenge begins!
Once the Challenge Starts
Firstly, we have two days of intro info posts before our Daily Positive Practices starting 6/1. I also recommend starting on a Saturday for an intro weekend, or two days before a new month. Moreover, you can harness your powerful beginning motivation and knock out all three on your start date! We additionally have free calendars and personal tracking options available to accommodate either start method.
We also have quick links in our listing of Daily Yogi entries below and on our First 30 Days Page. Just scroll down, otherwise use “find on page” function to help navigate to link for your current entry. Otherwise, visit this page for Daily Yogi posts for our first calendar year, and then use your device’s find function to navigate to your entry.
Please also email me to request a specific tracking or reminder tool if we do not have it here! In other words – I am happy to help with these or any tool you need to succeed 🙂
