21 days Challenge

YOGA CHALLENGE, Absolute Yoga Amsterdam, Absolute Yoga, Radish to wear, Hot Yoga

What did I get myself into this time? Absolute Yoga Amsterdam challenged me and I said yes.

When an email hit my mailbox asking me if I wanted to participate in their 21 Day Challenge, starting June 1, my first (honest) thought was no. Why? …Well a few years back I was really into Bikram Yoga, but then this one time I fainted and I got scared. I decided on doing non-hot yoga from then on. About two weeks ago I first tried out a Hot A 60 Yoga class at Absolute Yoga and I loved it there. There were no strict rules, which was something I need in order to let go and not be scared. If I wanted to drink; I could. If I would want to leave; I was able. Not that I wanted to do any of those things, but the fact that I was free in deciding for myself helped me a lot.


So when I received this email my first thought was no, but then I thought some more about it and discussed the challenge with my friends and boyfriend. I figured this challenge wasn’t really a physical one for me (I workout a lot); it is a mental challenge. Before even starting the challenge, one of their teachers already taught me a lesson. During my conversation over there discussing my participation in the challenge, she told me that: “Yoga isn’t always about being better or giving 100%, but you can also have a great practice at 60%. Just let your body tell you what it needs.” 

She hit it right on the spot. I find letting things go difficult. If I want something, I go for it; 100%. So besides losing my fear of fainting I really hope that I can grow mentally. The key is just going and seeing what the practice will bring me this time.

So what is this challenge exactly? Well that’s simple: for 21 days in a row I will join at least one hot yoga class at Absolute Yoga. This lovely yoga School offers lots of different yoga classes, for instance HOT A 90/60, which is a class of 90 minutes -or 60 minutes- consisting of 50 classic hatha yoga poses (the 60 minutes class offers a more condensed version), Hot Pilates, Hot Flow Yoga and Hot B 90/60, which is the Classic Hot Yoga series of 90 minutes consisting of 26 poses and 2 breathing exercisesAll the hot yoga classes are practiced in a room heated to 40 degrees Celsius. There are about ten classes a day and the first one starts really early. So there is a lot to choose from :).

Ever thought about joining a Challenge like this one? You can still sign up at the counter of Absolute Yoga Amsterdam. If you don’t live in Amsterdam just check if a yoga school in your area offers a similar challenge or just simply start your own :).
