365 Days

My friend Julie Steffler just completed a Bikram Yoga 365 challenge. She committed at the outset of 2011 to take 365 classes in 365 days. To do this she had to be consistent. Sometimes, she had to double up, or triple up on classes certain days to accommodate for travel or other inhibiting factors. She had to rethink what most people believe is possible for our bodies. In fact, our bodies and our minds are capable of so much. We just have to give them the challenge, and allow ourselves to flourish in it.

Seeing someone set a goal and then achieve it is so inspiring, isn't it? It's like hiking a long distance trail, running a marathon, or biking across the U.S. (or the world!) It means planning ahead. It means taking it one class, one day, or one step at a time. The outcome will be worth it.

Julie lives and practices yoga in Kelowna, British Columbia.
