Honestly, we are overwhelmed by the response from our 15 day yoga challenge.It started out as a simple, motivate more people to think, talk and do yoga kinda project. We are blown away by the sincerity, enthusiasm and dedication of Aham yoga members and others. We have more than 35 brave people who jumped right in and we got to see yoga practitioners not only in the greater Seattle area but also India, Brazil, Japan and other parts of USA. We have IT professional, homemakers, teachers, yoga teachers, doctors and people from various walks of life in the challenge.
We would especially like to acknowledge those who have never used social media before getting up to speed for the challenge and practitioners who do not have an active account, asking their good friends to post and tag on their behalf.
Our message was simple and clear – by posting a picture a day, we can communicate effectively to others that yoga is important, fun, integral and life changing. And when people see someone they know practicing yoga regularly, it becomes a whole lot easier to try it out. It somehow becomes less intimidating.
While people have spent a long time on taking their pictures, we must remember that it is never about how the pose looks externally. It is never that! It is beyond how you look in a pose. We have had a tremendous time playing with you folks. Below is a picture of all the people who were part of the challenge. And if you are wondering who won that yoga mug?
