Welcome to the #SneakyStrengthYoga Challenge! The 7-day challenge, with a fresh host each day, offers poses and actions to explore in practice and invites people to participate by posting and tagging their own versions of the daily suggestions to #sneakystrengthyoga. We’ll be releasing daily interviews as a special podcast series in support of the online movement that aims to spread the message of “strength” in the yoga community.
In this series, Kathryn connects with the six other intelligent and inspiring challenge hosts who have collaborated on the #sneakystrengthyoga project, all of whom are guest contributors to Jenni Rawlings’ online class library. In addition to discussing the pose or movement of the day, including guided instruction and information on why each chose their particular pose or theme, the women reveal what informs their practice and teaching, why they think strength needs to be sneaky, and share insights into their personal perspectives on the integrations of yoga and strength.
