January 2022 30 Day Challenge – Yoga Philosophy: Intro Weekend – Day 2: Resolutions and Intentions: 8 Limbs of Yoga

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!

00 Birthday/New Year Resolution
Ashtanga – The 8 Limbs of Yoga (must read!)

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.

Ashtanga – The 8 Limbs of Yoga (must read!)

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to set our New Year’s Resolutions for 2022. 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 an intention for yourself for this month, or keeping another daily Yoga practice (ie Asanas, Pranayama, or Meditation) that is meaningful to you! I have been maintaining my daily sleep meditations and increasing the frequency of my workouts, so I am back to focusing on my daily Asana practice this month. I am really trying to keep my Hydration habit for the year (and have been much more successful the past few months than ever before!) and am working at sticking to my morning and evening self-care routines.

This is a great time to journal, so you can review your intentions throughout the year!

My first post :D!

Hi everyone, I’m Tarryn Tyler. I finished my Yoga Teacher Training this year. After learning about Yoga philosophy and the Eight Limbs of Yoga, I was looking for ways to help ensure I integrated these teachings and practices from the Yoga Sutras into my life each day. I was unable to find an app, so I tried using my Yoga philosophy flashcards in my day planner to add one each day. Although they helped, unfortunately, my note cards alone did not cut it… I do much better accomplishing my goals with multiple reminders, especially pop-up notifications on my phone! I decided to take what I learned from my varied experiences in the high-pressure corporate world, and created an App to help motivate myself and others to take positive actions to make ourselves and the world a little better each day.

I completed my Yoga Teacher Training online due to the recent COVID crisis. We had HUGE discussion groups with a large and diverse group of Yogis on very different journeys. I enjoyed the input from so many people with such different backgrounds, as well as the camaraderie in this isolating time. I also recently joined a 90 Day Yoga Challenge on Facebook with a few of my friends from college, and the daily accountability helped me with physically practicing every day. So, I decided to develop my App to integrate with a full website to form a community from all walks of life to support and encourage each other on our journeys, and keep easy access to favorite past practices.

I love New Years, and I especially love New Years’ Resolutions. I make them not only every New Years, but also on my birthdays and anniversaries. So, today is my Birthday, and my BIG Birthday Resolution is consistently applying one Yoga teaching a day from the Yoga Sutras.

Please note I am FAR from perfect. I made this blog and app because I needed them! I do not really have an “off button” which is perhaps why I was drawn to Yoga. I also do not think I ever learned an inside voice… which is why it is a good thing I have a blog, rather than a podcast! I am just a Yogi and Yoga Teacher, not a master or guru… We are on this journey together 🙂 Also, I am just an Ashtanga Yoga student, not an authorized Ashtanga Teacher yet… which requires a trip to the only approved Ashtanga School in India #goals. As you will learn on this journey with me, I love self-improvement of all kinds, and the main point of my Birthday Resolution is another resolution from New Years.. to try to be a little better all day. That’s the best we can do, right?

So.. Let’s be the change we want to see in the world! I think that line is from maybe both Gandhi and Superman?? You will also quickly learn that I am a huge nerd.. I am an accountant, gamer, former tax CPA, and recovering overachiever who really enjoys learning and deep dark internet research holes. I moved to Colorado and began being outdoorsy and adventurous too. I am sooo excited to share my varied interests that may come up as we integrate different practices into our days. Please feel free to join the community and share your experiences, and/or ignore any suggestions that do not appeal to you.

I have ONE RULE… Please, everyone joining this community and commenting: PLEASE BE KIND. There is enough negativity in the world, and we are in especially stressful quarantine-times right now, so please… only add positivity. We are very protective of the safe space here, and I will be more than happy to stamp out cruelty or negativity here.

So… Welcome Yogis! Feel free to introduce yourself, or join in with comments or questions along the way. To start, I am going to focus on introducing each of the 8 Limbs of Yoga, and I hope you enjoy learning and incorporating these practices into your day along with me!
