JUMP START THE NEW YEAR WITH IOY'S PLANKS & POSES CHALLENGE! You'll get a free class if you complete the challenge and will be put in a drawing for an 8-class pass. A regular forearm plank practice will dramatically transform your yoga practice, I guarantee. HERE’S HOW THE CHALLENGE WORKS:

  • Register here.

  • Download the practice calendar which has details of what to practice each day.

  • Time and variations of planks & poses are up to you!! Stay as long as you can with good form, modifying as needed to avoid injury. Please note your time in the calendar.

  • Other than Breathe & Stretch, we'll do forearm plank for the amount stated on the calendar in class that day.

  • Here’s a video with great instruction for optimal alignment. Fast forward to 8.30 to get right to the plank instructions.

  • Sun Salutations can be whichever type you wish: Half Salutations, Surya Namaskar A, Surya Namaskar B, Lunge Salutations, etc. I suggest you mix them up.

  • Calendars must be received by February 4 (either emailed or at IOY) to be eligible for free class and drawing. Sorry, no exceptions.

  • Free class must be used by March 1, 2019. 8-class pass expires one year from first class used. Sorry, no exceptions.

  • Drawing will take place at Dinner & a Movie, Friday, February 22, 6:30-8:30 pm (see below). Need not be present to win. HAVE FUN! SMILE! YOU CAN DO THIS!!!

Bring a dish to share and your favorite beverage to this annual favorite! In Pursuit of Silence is a meditative exploration of silence and the impact of noise on our lives. Directed by Patrick Shen, this beautifully filmed documentary takes us on an immersive journey around the globe—from a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto, to the streets of the loudest city on the plant, Mumbai—and inspires us to both experience silence and celebrate the wonders of our world. Discussion to follow. Free admission. RSVP here.
