The creator of the 40 Days to Personal Revolution program, Baron Baptiste -- one of the world's most beloved master yoga teachers -- inspires us to transform more than body and mind. This program gives us the tools we need to set ourselves free to live the healthful life we've always imagined. In the 40 days program, you will create a whole new way of being and living.
The 40 Days program is based on timeless principles of growth, which serve as the philosophical underpinnings of this 40-day journey and demonstrate that radical change can come from making even the smallest shift. The program itself is divided into six weeks, with the seventh day of each week devoted to active rest. Each week builds on the lessons of the one preceding it and includes:
ASANA PRACTICE: Attend 6 days/week of asana classes at any SHAKTI location. The 7th day is a restorative home practice, optional yoga class, or day of rest.
