Boost your immune system with
the PranaShanti 40 Day Yoga Challenge!

The Challenge runs from Wednesday, October 1st to Sunday, November 9th, 2014.

The PranaShanti 40 Day Challenge is a commitment to attend yoga classes for 40 consecutive days.

Yogic science confirms that it takes 40 days to fully develop a new life-promoting habit or to drop a current destructive habit. The PranaShanti 40 Day Challenge is a great way to strengthen the body, unburden the mind, and begin a daily commitment to yourself. In 40 days, you can create a whole new way of being.

Start with any class on Wednesday, October 1st! There will be 3 optional team gatherings!

1. Wednesday, October 1st, 5:45 PM – 7:15 PM ~ Kick Off Class and Open House

Join us for our Kick Off class, Yin Yoga with Gitanjali. We’ll follow the class with healthy snacks. This is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow participants so that you can encourage each other along the way. You’ll be seeing a lot of each other!

2. Monday, October 20th, 5:45 PM – 7:15 PM ~ Midway Class

Join Tanya Riley for Hatha Yoga. This is an important class to keep your motivation high! Come and support each other.

3. Sunday, November 9th, 9:30 AM – 11:00 AM ~ Celebration Class

Come to Kundalini Yoga with Devinder Kaur. This will be our very last class together as a group. Celebrate your success, revel in your collective transformation, and discover how many new friends you’ve made along the way. Tea and snacks will be provided!

Why should I take the PranaShanti 40 Day Challenge?

This is an opportunity to transform your life. Through this program, you will experience:

  • increased strength & flexibility
  • possible weight loss
  • stress reduction & improved focus
  • improved sleep patterns & eating habits

Helpful Tips:

  • Daily journaling can give you insight, helping you get clear on your intention;
  • Try different styles of yoga. Choose a class that is strong and athletic, or one that is more relaxed based on how you’re feeling;
  • Bring a friend or two along; support each other on the journey;
  • Make time for yourself and listen to your body’s needs throughout this time of transformation.

How it works:

Register online or at the Reception Desk. Joining the Challenge is FREE but we like to know who’s in! Come to a PranaShanti Drop In yoga class every day from Wednesday, October 1st to Sunday, November 9th, 2014. Participants can ‘miss’ and make up for a maximum of 3 classes. These missed classes need to be made up for by doing two classes on any day within the challenge. Note: Thanksgiving is Monday October 13th- we will have a reduced schedule that day. Participants are required to take a class that day or to make up for it.

If you are new to yoga, don’t worry. We will show you how to progress safely. We challenge you to take at least 30 classes within 40 days; 40 classes is fantastic but 30 classes is also amazing!

The Prizes:

Each participant who completes 40 classes in 40 days will receive a 10 Class Package and one of our new PranaShanti glass water bottles!

In addition, all those who complete 40 classes in 40 days will be entered into the draw for the GRAND PRIZE…6 Month Unlimited Class Pass!

Cost:

Use your existing class package or buy the 40 Day Challenge Package for $199.00 + HST. The 40 Day Challenge Package is valid from October 1st to November 9th and is non-refundable, non-transferable and will not be extended.

Note: There are no exchanges, extensions, or transfers for the 10 class or 6 Month Unlimited prize packages. They are also not redeemable for cash value.

    Testimonial re 40-day yoga challenge

    It was on September 23, that I was talking with my friend, Jessica and telling her that I was considering getting back into yoga, but that I did not know which class to take.

    When the 40-day yoga challenge came up October 1, I decided that it would be a great way for me to get back into it and try out a few different classes to see which one would be best suited for me.

    To my amazement, I tried 7 different types of yoga and enjoyed all of them; some more challenging then others. I was able to keep up and got great benefits from all of them. The warm yin was my favorite and where I got the most benefits. I released a lot of tension from my hips and my sciatica improved so much, that I could now sleep comfortably. Alleluia!!!

    I had over 11 different wonderful, nurturing and influential teachers, who all made it worthwhile, fun and exciting to be on the mat, where I reconnected with myself and learnt to stretch, breath, move and relax.

    The receptionists were welcoming and gracious. I felt I was part of big family and made new friends with whom I enjoyed sipping a warm cup of tea after class.

    Once my 40-day challenge was over, I pursued my daily practice. I no longer feel intimidated by trying new yoga classes and I feel it is now part of my daily practice. I recommend PranaShanti’s 40-day yoga challenge to anyone who is undecided about yoga. Thank you…
