Challenge Overview

Join yoga therapist Beth Spindler for a two-week brain-training program that’s designed to sharpen focus and memory, reduce stress, and enhance emotional stability. Each class has a different theme, ranging from anxiety reduction, to eliminating workplace tension, to boosting confidence, to improving mental clarity. During these audio classes, Beth will guide you through a number of movement and breathing techniques that are geared toward the focus of the day—and you’ll also get customizable options along the way, since not everyone resonates with the same practices.

Once you sign up you’ll get one email a day for fourteen days. Anyone, at any stage of their yoga journey, can benefit from the brain-boosting practices featured in this program.
