Way of Being Challenge

A 6 week challenge to transform yourself and create a new way of being that best serves your highest self!

This challenge has been created by Sid Yoga Center instructors with a mission to create ripples throughout the world! The Way of Being Challenge is different from your typical yoga asana challenge. We are presenting an opportunity for you to transform yourself and all who partake.  What this challenge will look like is each day a Sid Yoga Center instructor will make a Facebook and Instagram post to present the daily challenge.  You will then accept the challenge and witness how it uplifts you that day.  You will carry each challenge with you into the next day and continue to add on small, little efforts that add up to something so much bigger than ourselves!  From meditating 5 minutes a day to increasing your daily water and whole foods intake to small gestures like sending a compliment to some else, a day of no complaining, creating time to turn your cell phone off each day, and so many more new traits to adopt in your daily life! Repetition is key, so following this challenge will help you witness what helps to serve your highest self!

How it works:
  1. Sign up!
  2. Attend group meeting #1 for the community opening
  3. Like Sid Yoga’s Facebook page and follow Sid Yoga on our Instagram @sidyoga to check out the daily challenge
  4. Post a picture or video of yourself doing the daily challenge with #PeopleofSidYoga
  5. Each challenge that is presented will carry with you into the next day
  6. Practice at Sid Yoga Center each day using your 6 week Way of Being Challenge unlimited pass (Towson or Fed Hill studio)
  7. Witness as you become more aware of your way of being both on and off the mat and find peace, love and freedom

Release your inner blocks

Healing Breathwork is a tool for healing, and clearing old patterns within ones body. Learn how to use your breath for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical freedom.

Sid’s Healing Breathwork is a powerful approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, transpersonal discovery, and spiritual practice. The process itself uses very simple means: it combines natural baby’s breathing with evocative music in a comfortable setting. With the eyes closed and lying on a mat, each person uses their own breath and the music in the room to tap into deeper a consciousness.

This experience is appropriate for everyone and will leave you with clarity, inner peace and connection to yourself.
Sid McNairy will be your lead guide for this session, who has countless hours studying Holotropic and transgressional breathwork under the direct supervision and teachings of Grandmother Morningstar, who was a direct student of founder of holotropic breathwork Stanley Grof’s for years.

Space is limited. Sign up today!
