The 30-day yoga un-challenge is a celebration of you. It is a revolt against doing to prove your worth. It is a courageous act to reclaim what has always existed within you- peace, wisdom, trust, joy and love. It is a radical act of self-kindness which is desperately needed in today's world.
What is an un-challenge? It is an undoing. It is a return to wholeness by spending 10-25 minutes each day for 30 days in stillness through asana (yoga), pranayama (breathing) and dhyana (meditation). If you read this and think you don't have time, sign up immediately! :) Think about that- you don't have time to nurture your soul for 10 minutes in a 24 hour period?
Why an un-challenge? You were meant for greatness- you feel it in your bones but don't know how to express it. Learning to slow down and turn your awareness inward, during the un-challenge, will help you tap into your intuition, access your greatness and give you the confidence to express your truth and share your gifts.
The 30 Day Yoga Un-challenge brought me back to my yoga mat after several years of sporadic practice. I didn't realize how much I needed the physical and spiritual benefits of yoga back in my life until I began watching Carrie's videos. From day one, I felt inspired and enlightened by her lessons -- she has such a genuine, welcoming teaching style! The Un-challenge was exactly the reminder I needed that yoga is a powerful and necessary part of my well-being. Thank you, Carrie, for sharing your expertise and your heart during these amazing 30 days!

I have been longing for some stability and discipline in my life and this was exactly my source. I committed every morning before I left for work to turn on my computer or sometimes I would watch you on my phone. I noticed that I felt accomplished by giving to myself the best I could for that day. Then, I would start over the next day. Some days I would notice my work with the un-challenge become a ripple effect on my family, my students at school and my work became more clear. I even had to laugh at myself because I noticed I was trying to avoid day 14, I think... It was Strength. Anyway, I was like a stubborn child that didn't want to do the work. I always had an excuse to not do it. But then I realized.... I have always since I was a kid told myself I'm not strong( physically) so I can't do hard things. So I just laughed through it and completed it with joy and gratitude! I just feel great and totally free. I feel grounded, patient, relaxed, peaceful, and Strong! I look forward to joining the sangha!
Brilliant experience!!! I committed at Least 5 minutes per day, plus watching/participating with the daily videos. This gave me a sense of well being, anticipation for those daily moments and Permission to put myself first during a time of day (evening homework time) that I am usually dedicated to the kids.
By taking the step to participate in the Yoga Un-Challenge because I wasn't sure physically I could do it - I faced a fear. Now I find myself smiling during postures that are more difficult for me. Adding the Yoga-Unchallenge to my daily meditation has enabled me to begin to more fully examine my path - who am I? What is my purpose? Thank you, Carrie, for opening a door for me.
I have chronic pain. I have always struggled with yoga until I found Carrie's 30 day challenge. I was excited from the first class! I could keep up. She gave alternatives if you cannot do exercises and her voice is soft and soothing to hear during this practice. If you haven't bought her courses, you should. They are great. I am already shouting it from the rooftops. Thank you Carrie for your love and guidance and knowledge to be able to do something for others and for sharing your gifts and talents!
Is it really free?
Yes, it is 100% free. There is no catch. In addition to the free videos, you will also be signed up for my weekly newsletter and receive articles, interviews and tips to help you connect to your inner guru and create the life you love. You can unsubscribe at any time.
I hardly have any extra time in my day. Can I still do the un-challenge?
Yes! I designed this with you in mind. Each video is between 10-25 minutes in length. The beauty of this un-challenge is that you can practice these videos at any time during the 30 days, at your leisure. Even if you only do one video during the un-challenge, you are beginning the process of nurturing yourself.
I have never done yoga. Can I still participate in the yoga un-challenge?
Yes! This is an all-levels yoga challenge so EVERYONE is invited. Props are optional. I also offer different variations so you can adjust the poses to meet your individual needs.
I am pregnant. Is this safe for me? Can I still do the un-challenge?
Yes. And what a beautiful gift to give yourself and your little one. Please make sure to watch the welcome video on the first day of the Un-challenge. It addresses contraindications and how to adjust the poses for pregnancy.
I found the un-challenge after September 1st. Can I still join in?
Of course! We would love to have your sweet energy. And remember, since this is a gift to yourself, and it's all about self-care (rasayana), there will be plenty of time to catch up.
If you're going to post the videos to your website, why do I need to sign up to receive the emails?
