Good morning Yogis! We are running another 30 Day Intro Challenge for January. This year January lines up perfectly with our Saturdays intro weekend for Resolutions / Intention Setting, so we will be a couple of days off from our challenge posts which start with Day 0 Intro Weekends. We set our New Years Resolutions yesterday, and today we will set focuses for our 8 Limbs Practices. New Yogis – please just learn about the 8 Limbs for now!
New & Intro Challenge Yogis – Please navigate to our intro weekend posts below!
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to set focus for yourself from the 8 Limbed Yoga Practices for 2022. In traditional Yoga this is something a Guru would recommend for his student, but this is a personal journey so please focus on prioritizing a few practices that you need in your life. Our daily practices cycle through the 8 Limbs of Yoga, and I am currently focused on continuing my daily Meditation practice and maintaining a daily Asana practice for the month of January.
For 2022, I am prioritizing Svadhyaya (self-study) with restarting my daily journaling habit which recently fell off over the holidays, Aparigraha and gratitude to maintain positivity, and Santosha (contentment) with mindfulness and living in the present moment. Last year I prioritized Svadhyaya (self-study) with increasing the frequency of my journaling habit, Satya (truthfulness) particularly with myself and things that no longer serve me, and Santosha (contentment) with mindfulness. In 2020 I prioritized Ahimsa (non-harming) and Meditation. Or, consider the Karma Yoga path of Ghandi with prioritizing Ahimsa (non-harming) and Satya (truthfulness). Or, review the 8 Limbs of Yoga and select a few that you would like to practice more frequently than every 10-20 days with our Daily Yogi practices.

Our daily practices will stay synced up with our 30 Day Challenge Group throughout January. If this is not your first month of Daily Yogi, consider setting another daily Yoga practice (ie Asanas, Pranayama or Meditation) that is meaningful to you!
Please comment if you would like to share your practice priorities for 2022 or January. Stay tuned for our first positive practice from the Yoga Sutras on Monday – we will stay synced up with our 30 Day Challenge Group throughout January! Always remember, be kind!
