YoMo – January is Yoga Practice Month in Lawrence

I’ve been busy the last couple of days, getting YoMo materials organized. Last January I did WoYoPracMo, or World Yoga Practice Month.  You sign up online to commit to practicing yoga every day for the whole month.  WoYoPracMo was quite successful, and the organizers decided to do it every month.  For me, that wasn’t, hmm, compelling enough.  It was more effective as a kick in the pants for me to have a month set aside for this.  Silly, I suppose, because yoga isn’t goal-oriented, and the idea of a yoga challenge is not very yoga-like either, but there it is.

So I asked the owners of the Yoga Center of Lawrence if we could have our own local yoga practice month.  They liked it.  We’re doing it in January.  You can read about it on the YCL site.

We’ll be sending out encouraging emails and announcements, and we’ll have a celebratory potluck on February 1.

Just so you know, you don’t have to be a student at the YCL to sign up.  You don’t even have to be a resident of Kansas.  

Oh yeah, one more thing I haven’t mentioned in any of the materials I’ve been writing:  The purpose is to get our home practices to be constant and regular.  So even though YoMo is over on January 31, 2009, our home yoga practices shouldn’t be.
