Yoga is an absolutely beautiful practice with options for everyone from every walk of life. In the #YogaforALOus challenge hosts will be encouraging participants to get on their mat every day for 12 days straight. There will be a different pose each day and a beginner, intermediate and advanced variation of the pose will be offered to the challenge participants. Each host will demonstrate a different variation so that everyone is encouraged to get on their mat no matter how new or advanced they are. 

#mentALOawareness

June 18 - 27

This challenge aims to break the myth that yoga is just a physical practice and draw awareness to the impact yoga has on mental health as well. With over 44 million Americans dealing with mental health conditions, yoga can provide healing and a positive outlet to deal with these struggles. The aim is to share our mental health journeys and how yoga has helped to transform our lives in more than just the
physical sense.

The exploration of Yin vs Yang postures as well as strong vs flexible poses will drive our practice as a means to find balance within our bodies and our lives.  

#AloSummerSolstice

June 21st is the Summer Solstice, so in preparation for this celestial event we are warming up  with a challenge themed around sun salutations. On the last day of the challenge, (June 21st) it is also international yoga day, which is why we've included yogis' choice as the pose, to allow for sharing their favorite asana in this practice.

#AloSummerFavorites

June 1 - 10

We've reached the halfway mark in the year and it's an opportune time to look at and check back in on the goals we've set at the start of the year.
We may have a specific challenging pose that we've been working hard on, but the yoga practice is an all-rounded one and it's time to rope in the other parts of the practice that our bodies also appreciate. This all rounded challenge is for participants to explore each day what their bodies are capable of. After all, we all have our favorite poses that highlight our strengths and motivates us in our practice because these poses make us feel good and allow ourselves to be comfortable and this could vary daily and even across seasons. What better way to kickstart the summer by creating a multitude of shapes that our own bodies are familiar with and use them to encourage and motivate us further in our practice. To keep showing up for our practice on the mat no matter how hard life hits and however busy you may get, is what this challenge is all about. Get ready to show your creativity this summer!

#LoveIsTheAnswerChallenge

June 1 - 12

Love is the force that binds everything together. Only through love we can be united and truly happy. The idea of this challenge is to create a place where love resides and to connect as a community through deep compassion and kindness.

#ALOFireOrIce

June 1- 10

June is for Gemini and everyone is allowed to have an alter-ego. Which face do you want to show? Introvert or Extrovert? Yin or Yang? Fire or Ice? With #ALOFireOrIce, we aim to show that all poses are beautiful and important, whether it’s a peak pose (“Fire”) or a restorative variation where you can just chill (“Ice”). Life would be boring if we were all the same, so we are offering 2 different styles or personalities to the very same pose. Fiery one day? Icy cool the next? We believe that yoga builds a strong understanding of ourselves so with #ALOFireOrIce, we will challenge participants to embrace the possibilities and show their true colors. 

#SoftandStrongwithAlo

June 1 - 12

Summer solstice is approaching, and we want to bring the warmth with bold and thoughtful asanas to help you ground down and tap into the suns positive energy! This challenge will offer uplifting words of encouragement, intention, and fun, all mixed with strong yet soft yoga poses. 

#GettingBendyBack

#GettingBendyBack

A challenge to inspire and encourage participants to practice in backbends safely and progress, whilst opening the heart chakra and learning about it. We will also be sharing our knowledge to help each other reach individual goals in the daily set pose. This challenge is open to all levels and has a pose line up accessible to all.

#TimeToFlipTheGrip

May 21- 30

Join us in this inspirational as well as instructional challenge as we prepare our bodies to flip the grip. Get motivated to practice the necessary elements, such as back bending and shoulder openers, that will help you on your journey. #TimeToFlipTheGrip will begin by guiding you to open up the body and create space and then will progress onto king variations of poses, such as King Dancer’s Pose and King Pigeon. For us this is not just about the 10-day duration this challenge will take place but is also about inspiring others to progress in the practice for the duration after the challenge, by giving advice and tips on sequences/or poses that can be continuously worked on to achieve a flipped grip. We are committed as hosts to make this challenge accessible for anyone that wants to join and learn how to flip their grip. We will do this by providing variations/modifications to all poses that are not yet attainable to all, so that everyone feels welcomed and included in this challenge.
