Section 1
  • Welcome to Day 1 of this year's 30 for 30 Challenge! Ready for your first class? Today's 20-minute all-levels practice with Jim Bennitt will help you build vitality with mindful, breath-connected movement so you can leave your mat feeling refreshed and energized. Let's get started! (And remember: If today's class, or any class during the challenge, isn't what you're looking for, you can choose a different one from our class library, where you can search by class duration, level, teacher, and style, customizing the challenge to suit your needs and preferences.)
Section 2
  • Welcome to Day 2 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today, rather than a hard goal, make curiosity your focus with this 30-minute anti-peak pose practice with Cyndi Lee. You'll explore key elements of asana: twisting, forward folding, balancing, and more, and Cyndi's knack for breaking down common asanas in creative ways will make familiar poses feel like new! Ready to get started?
Section 3
  • It's Day 3 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today, join Ellen Mosko for a 45-minute beginner-friendly yin class where you will hold poses for one to two minutes at a time, allowing the body (and mind) to quiet, relax, and let go. (Your hips and shoulders will thank you after this one!) Enjoy.
Section 4
  • Day 4 of the 30 for 30 Challenge is here! Today's class is an invitation to slow your yoga down. Join Constance Molleda for a mindful-movement sequence that infuses classic postures with breath awareness. This balanced practice will help you find ease, strength, and steadiness on the mat. Let's begin!
Section 5
  • Ready for Day 5 of the 30 for 30 Challenge? Today's 30-minute class with Gary Kraftsow introduces the Viniyoga practice of using breath-centric asana as preparation for pranayama (breathwork). This relaxing, slow-flowing practice is perfect to do in the evening. You'll synchronize your breath with each movement and shift into a quiet inner space. You'll also learn two different variations of ujjayi pranayama, one at the beginning of class and one at the end, which focus on slowing down and watching your breath. Let this gentle practice bring you into your body through your breath!
Section 6
  • Welcome to Day 6 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today's class is a steadily paced 20-minute practice with Luke Ketterhagen that will help you ground, center, and connect deeply to your body and breath. Ready to begin?
Section 7
  • It's Day 7 of the 30 for 30 Challenge, which means we're already at the end of week one! Today's class with Leah Sugerman provides a quick and challenging sequence that will work your core and get your heart rate up. This energizing 30-minute practice will fire up both the transversus abdominis (the deep, stabilizing core muscles) and the rectus abdominis (the "six-pack" abs). Unroll your mat, and enjoy!
Section 8
  • Welcome to Day 8 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today's class is a 20-minute "power breakfast" with Luke Ketterhagan, designed to lift your energy and leave you feeling both refreshed and grounded. You'll start in tadasana (mountain pose) and move through classic standing postures before winding down with seated poses and a final savasana. This is a great class to do in the morning!
Section 9
  • Welcome to Day 9 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Immerse yourself in a sea of self-reflection in today's class: a slow, mindful, and powerful 30-minute flow with Diana Hulet. Explore what yoga means to you both on and off the mat as you practice meditative twisted lunges, prasarita padottanasana, quieting seated folds, and more. Enjoy your practice.
Section 10
  • Today is Day 10 of the 30 for 30 Challenge—that means that after today, you're a third of the way there! Holding postures is a fantastic way to build tapas (discipline). Long holds can help us build a sense of stability that transfers into our everyday lives so that we can remain steady and unshaken during chaotic times. Today's class is a 20-minute practice with Jim Bennitt that features long holds in downward dog, plank pose, a variation of locust pose, half lord of the fishes, and more. Find your sthira (steadiness) through stillness.
Section 11
  • Today is Day 11 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today's 40-minute class with Danni Pomplun will warm you up, keep you moving, and leave you feeling refreshed. You’ll begin with lunges and sun salutes before moving into a sequence that includes revolved lunge variations, supine core work, a fun warrior ll to skandasana (side lunge) transition, an opportunity to play in half moon pose, and more. Enjoy the challenge.
Section 12
  • Ready for Day 12 of the 30 for 30 Challenge? In today's 60-minute class with Jessica Stickler, you'll work with opening the hamstrings and the surrounding muscle structures. After warming up with sun salutations, you'll practice standing forward bends, triangle forward fold, reclining big toe pose, and more. Required props: 2 blocks, a chair, a strap, and a blanket or pillow Enjoy!
Section 13
  • Ready for Day 13 of the 30 for 30 Challenge? (You're nearly halfway through!) Today's 15-minute class with Dianne Bondy features a circular flow that uses transitions through goddess pose and chair pose to take you all around your mat. This practice is quick, yet challenging. Feel those quads burning!
Section 14
  • It's Day 14 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Can you believe we're already at the end of week two? Today's class is a 40-minute vinyasa practice with Kat Heagberg. This practice is full of feel-good poses that will open your hips, quads, and hamstrings (which may feel particularly lovely after all of that leg work yesterday!)—with a little bit for your chest and shoulders too. Enjoy!
Section 15
  • Welcome to Day 15 of the 30 for 30 Challenge. After today you've officially reached the halfway point! Today's class is a gentle and sweet 60-minute yin practice with Leah Sugerman, designed to help you release deep tension in the neck, shoulders, upper back, and hips. Ready to begin?
Section 16
  • Day 16 of the 30 for 30 Challenge is here! (You're past the halfway point now!) Today's class is a 20-minute sequence with Narween Otto, designed to help you move into your day feeling refreshed. Class begins with a simple warm-up that will help you release tension and mobilize your hips, lower back, and upper back. Then you'll be guided through a series of sun salutations to energize you from the ground up. Enjoy!
Section 17
  • Welcome to Day 17 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today's 20-minute class with Jim Bennitt utilizes sun salutations as a way to cultivate tapas (discipline). You'll build heat as you flow with intention and with a deep focus on the breath. Ready to begin?
Section 18
  • It's Day 18 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Give your wrists a break today as you join Dianne Bondy for a dynamic, heat-building half-hour flow that doesn't require any weight bearing on the hands. Get ready to feel the burn in warrior poses, lots of chair poses, and more. Class concludes with a guided relaxation in savasana. Let's begin!
Section 19
  • You've arrived at Day 19 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today you'll sweat, flow, and feel good with a 45-minute vinyasa sequence with Kat Heagberg, focused on fun and challenging variations of vasisthasana (side plank). Let's get started!
Section 20
  • It's Day 20 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Can you believe that we're already two-thirds of the way through? Today you'll join Ruby Lee for a 16-minute flow that includes plenty of heart-opening backbends and lateral (side-bending) poses. This sequence is designed to help you cultivate a joyful state of mind in preparation for whatever life may bring!
Section 21

After that comes tension-relieving floor movements where you’ll unwind your spine, open your hips, stretch out your hamstrings, and more. Enjoy the challenge!
Section 22
  • Welcome to Day 22 of the 30 for 30 Challenge! Today, we invite you to explore opposites as you join Ellen Mosko for a 20-minute class that mixes yang (active) and yin (passive) postures.

Let's begin!
