Yoganuary 8.0 ‘Time To Shine’

INTRODUCTION TO YOGANUARY 8.0

What is Yoganuary?

Yoganuary is a 31-day challenge that will begin your year with confidence, strength, flexibility, mindfulness, expansion and so much more. It consists of daily videos that you can flow with alongside the Soul Sanctuary community -  or at your own pace! You can expect yoga and movement, meditation, philosophy, breath work and sound.

The practices will be led by Soul Sanctuary founder and yoga teacher Cat Meffan, alongside her special guest teachers, Caroline Inspired, Joa Gomez, Lena Jungmann, Angie Tiwari and new guest teacher Zakiya Dharsi. This beautiful team will help you to  activate a sense of awareness for your mind, body, soul and breath. 

More about Soul Sanctuary

Soul Sanctuary is an online yoga membership, (available on desktop and app), that has over 650 practices for you to enjoy including yoga, meditation, movement, sound, free movement, asana alignment, breath work, philosophy and skills development. 

Soul Sanctuary is more than yoga on the mat, it’s an online space that’s all about peeling back the layers and connecting to deeper parts of yourself, moving closer to your authenticity and expanding. It’s about taking what you learn and applying it to real-life, growing beyond the poses, manifesting the life you want and learning about how beautiful you already are.

It is a place where you can feel supported by like-minded beings, sharing laughter, love, curiosity and movement. When you become a Soul Sanctuary member, you are also signing up to the most beautiful and supportive community on the internet.

YOGANUARY TIPS

In case you’re new to Soul Sanctuary… we are very excited to share that this is our 8th Yoganuary. 

Yoganuary offers you the chance to let go of ego, step outside of your regular routine and begin your year with all the possibility that taking time to dive deep inside the self can bring.  We encourage you to take things at your own pace, in your own time, listening to your body and your intuition. Please create the space to tune in and listen to what you need. If this means you’d like to set yourself the challenge to take part every day throughout Yoganuary, take this as your cue. If you want to set your own pace, we encourage you to make Yoganuary your own.

What do I need?

We recommend you use a yoga mat for your asana practice . We also recommend blocks and a strap, (or any household items that you can use instead - i.e. books and dressing robe strap).

You don’t need the latest yoga clothes or accessories to be part of this journey and our lovely community. The only essential is that you offer yourself compassion and honesty, showing  up on your mat to let go of whatever needs to flow through you or be released that day. 

WHAT IS THE YOGANUARY 8.0 THEME?

OUR YOGANUARY 8.0 THEME IS 'TIME TO SHINE'

As you embark on this 31-day healing journey, trust that this is your Time To Shine.

You’ll explore paths and patterns that both trigger and delight your senses as you move, breathe and transform on your mat. The Soul Sanctuary’s Yoganuary challenge is more than 31 days of asana, because we invite our members to really feel, observe and expand. We have curated and created a voyage that will move your soul as much as it will move your body. We call upon you to come as you are; without shame, without judgment, just being present with the energy you find yourself in each day. 

Take this opportunity to dive deep into curiosity and awareness. Find connection with not only your breath and movements, but with the Soul Sanctuary’s supportive, kind and loving community.

We will journey through 5 chapters: The Arrival, The Awakening, The Expansion, The Freedom and The Knowing, taking time every day with an abundance of yoga, embodied flow, chakras, mudra, meditation, strength and so much more. Yoganuary 8.0 will be accompanied by our new workbook, to allow for more self study and inner growth. 

We are here to shine bright together. Filling ourselves up with confidence, empowerment and liberation, so that we can share our glow with the world.

Chapter 1: The Arrival

In this chapter, we focus on the process of arriving and grounding into the New Year and into the self. It is a time for slowness and intention, allowing yourself to check in and honour the beginning of your journey. 

The practices will encourage you to connect with yourself and acknowledge where you are currently at in your life. 

Chapter 2: The Awakening

The second chapter is all about stepping outside of your comfort zone and embracing the process of awakening. We will explore the building blocks of yoga, both physically and mentally, using props to deepen postures and bring attention back to the foundations. 

The practices within this chapter encourage you to honour any shadows that may arise and develop the confidence to face them.

Chapter 3: The Expansion

In this chapter, we delve into the concept of interconnectivity and expansion. 

We explore the idea that our inner consciousness reflects in our outer world and emphasise the importance of our connection to nature. 

Through mandala yoga practices that connect with the elements, we deepen our connection and recognise our place within the universal web of life. 

Chapter 4: The Freedom

Chapter 4 is dedicated to exploring liberation, the shine of the soul and inner illumination. We focus on the chakras, the energy centres within the body, to open up gateways for personal growth and freedom. 

Through specific yoga practices, we aim to activate and balance the chakras, allowing energy to flow freely. 

Chapter 5: The Knowing

The final chapter of this journey is about integrating everything you have learned and experienced into your life as you enter the New Year with a sense of empowerment. 

It's a time to embrace the knowing within yourself and to reflect on the growth and transformation you have undergone.
