Summer Challenge Underway!
Program is inspiring LOTS of extra practices
Southern Om kicked off its 2nd annual Summer Challenge on June 12. The SO Challenge is a 70-day challenge designed to get you on the mat often with great prizes at the end. It is not too late to get started! All you have to do is practice! If you practice 70 times, you will earn 2 months of unlimited yoga. 50 practices earns you one free month and 30 practices (or more) earns you a free t-shirt. Our leaders are: Laurens Flanagan, Anna Gagnon and Teresa Sampson The SO Summer Challenge is open to any and all yogis and is free to participate. At the end of the 70 days (August 20), there will be three awesome prizes, depending on how many times you hit the mat! Use this as an inspiration to take your practice to another level.
