Eliminate your reliance on external quick fixes and put in the work to make it happen NOW with the support of our Dimitra Yoga community. There is only one thing required to change your life, willingness.
Why 40 days?
Yogic science confirms that it takes 40 days to fully develop a new life-promoting habit or to drop a current destructive habit. In 40 days, you can create a whole new way of being.
- Yoga– You will practice yoga 5 days per week during the 40 Days. A minimum of 4 of these classes are required to take place at dimitraYOGA in Lewes or Rehoboth, and 1 practice can be at home. Use the 6th day to try something new – dance class, walking on the boardwalk, running, etc. Take the 7th day each week to rest!
- Meditation – You will meditate once a day during the 40 Days. We will support you thru this process, giving you effective tools to find ease in your meditation practice and make it work for you.
- Food Cleanse – You will follow a clean diet (anti-inflammatory, following Dr. Junger’s advice – eliminating caffeine, alcohol and refined sugar). In addition to mindful eating throughout the whole program, you can also choose to participate in a (1, 2, or 3 day) juice cleanse to detox and purify your system.
- Plank Challenge – This is optional. You will receive a daily update on the private facebook page, including your plank challenge for the day… working up to a 5 minute plank! Sounds wild, but it’s possible and our past participants have surprised themselves with their ability to accomplish this!
- Weekly Meetings – We think it’s important for you to feel the community that is in this with you. Dimitra will host a 30 minute meeting on Mondays (1/7, 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11) for 40 Days participants at our Lewes studio. Pick one of two times that works for you – either 8:45 am or 7:00 pm. You’ll receive guidance, Dimitra will answer questions, we will discuss how we are doing with the program and share recipes / tips with one another. You will hear helpful strategies and motivating advice that helps you through the week.
