40 DAYS PROGRAM

YOUR PERSONAL REVOLUTION

A breakthrough program to radically change your body and awaken the sacred within your soul. A daily combination of yoga practice, meditation, diet, and personal reflection will cultivate a solid foundation from which students can live and grow. This program, designed by Baron Baptiste, runs for just under 6-weeks. A facilitator will guide you on the journey with Community Meetings once a week where the group meets to support and share together. Regardless of your level of experience, this program will reveal mental clarity, lightness of body and an illumination of spirit.

$50 (Tuition includes 6 weekly meetings)

You can use your current yoga membership to fulfill the daily yoga practice requirement or sign up for an auto renew membership that allows you to practice any time and at all locations.

Meetings will be held at your home PYC studio. Please check your studio for meeting dates and times.

PROGRAM DETAILS

The Program explores the following 5 areas:

  • DAILY YOGA PRACTICE

    Six days of yoga per week (1 day of rest). We encourage you to do 5 of these practices at the studio, but you may supplement 1 home practice per week. Each week there is a theme for your physical practice that will help you build a strong and sustainable personal practice.

  • DAILY MEDITATION PRACTICE

    You will begin to build a daily meditation practice over 40 days beginning with just 5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes at night. Each week we will build upon the tools of the previous week, adding a weekly focus and increasing the length of time slowly.

  • OBSERVANCE OF DIETARY INTAKE

    Each week we look at a specific area of food, and bring attention to our habits and attachments around that food. During the fourth week we will take a three day cleanse to give your body a rest.

  • PERSONAL JOURNALING

    Each week there will be a short reading and journal questions that will encourage inward self explorative inquiries.

  • WEEKLY COMMUNITY MEETINGS

    Once a week, the 40 Days group will meet and a facilitator will lead a forum in which the group will discuss that week’s readings, and excavating journal questions. The weekly community meetings are the most beneficial part of the program. As the group moves and changes together, you will find strength and encouragement from other participants.

PAST PARTICIPANT EXPERIENCES

VICKI

During the 40 days program I challenged my body, my soul and my mind. I changed. I grew. I was able to really “see” the person that I was. But more importantly, I came to realize the person that I want to be! Yes, the program brought a lot of pain to the surface. But now, its out! I can see it, face it and overcome it! Thank you Denise. You helped me find my strength. Thank you Heather. You helped me find joy! Thank you Pino. You helped me find my power! Thank you to all the wonderful new friends I made. You all helped me find my courage! And a special thank you to my beautiful daughter! You helped me find my purpose!

LAURA

Yoga was just “not my thing”, or so I thought. Om-ing and breathing loudly were “different” and definitely out of my comfort zone. Fast forward a few months later and although unsure how I ended up there, I was in the middle of my first 40 days meeting, as far from my comfort zone as you can imagine. Fast forward again 40 days later and I have taken on that uncomfortable zone in my life. I have been inspired to take life as it comes and to be proud of my choices (such as leaving my career to be a stay at home mom!)…and my oms and breathing are now loud and proud!

MAGGIE

The 40 Day program was something that I had contemplated doing for some time, it was Heather’s encouragement that made me make the commitment to myself and I am forever grateful. Each meeting I left feeling inspired and ready to embrace the week full of energy and awareness. The enthusiasm, positivity and inspiration from Heather, Pino and Denise were contagious. In my practice I feel stronger and off the mat I find myself more present. Since completing the 40 Days, I feel empowered to move forward with as much energy and strength on and off of my mat. Who I am is the possibility of…teacher training at PYC 2013 and Africa Yoga Project 2013!

PATRICIA

I committed to 40 days with hesitation – how was I juggle the program with kids, work and home? I joined the program in order to get in better physical shape, but had no idea of how much bigger my next 6 weeks would be! At the first meeting, I stood in the middle of a circle of strangers and committed to the goals of self-acceptance and letting go of expectations in my life. That first big step for me became more little steps every day of the 40 days toward living a more joyous, present life. I am certainly physically stronger, but the program was far more of a personal journey that I imagined. I am grateful for the insights I have gained, the strength and anchor through stormy days, and the new friends that I am so happy to have made. I encourage anyone looking to commit to their own journey to commit to the 40 days program!
