40 Day Challenge at Hot Yoga Wellington


Feeling stuck in hibernation? We challenge you to tap into the holistic potential of a regular yoga practice. Our biannual 40 Day Challenge begins on 9 October!

Here's how it works: Track your progress at any of our three studios (250 Wakefield St., 139 Featherston St., & 21-23 Andrews Ave in Lower Hutt). Yogis who attend at least 30 classes during a six-week period will be eligible to win some amazing prizes. We'll select two winners at random from each studio on 17 November when the challenge concludes. Plus, we’ll have some goodies along the way to award you for your incremental progress!

We are particularly excited for this 40 Day Challenge as it presents an opportunity to sift through the five koshas and seek a deeper understanding of the radiant, innermost Self.

The koshas, described in the Taittiriya Upanishad (and ancient Tantric text), are interpenetrating, energetic layers of being. Humans are said to have five koshas, which exist as layered sheaths that encase the soul. Annamaya kosha is the outermost, physical kosha, and this is followed by three subtle energy koshas (pranayama, monomaya, and vijnanamaya). Anandamaya kosha, or the bliss sheath, exists as our innermost energy layer. (You might call to mind the image of halved onion or a Russian matryoshka doll as a good visual for how the koshas manifest within our physical bodies). Many of us know what it might feel like to be present in the outermost kosha: nourishing the body with healthy food or a regular yoga practice. But how often do you tap into your innermost wisdom? Recognising a yoga practice as a modality for healing, tuning into the subtleties of individual koshas and becoming aware and present within all of the koshas at once is hugely empowering: It is a practice of integrating all parts of your being and expanding your sense of Self.

Tapping into each kosha in turn a the first step toward feeling robustly present and at peace. We'll begin our 40 day exploration of the koshas by directing our attentions to the outermost layer, annamaya kosha, and week by week, we'll make our way through these layers of being.

We do hope you'll join us for this amazing opportunity for a complete reset-- body, mind, & spirit.

Take notice
