Re-cap of the September Sunrise Challenge
by Becca Washer
The 2nd Annual September Sunrise Challenge kicked off on Tuesday, September 1st at 6am. From two classes a week last year, to five this year, the odds were stacked against us for a perfect record, but the 502PY students stepped up in a BIG way. We started off with so many people that there were four yogis practicing in the lobby!
There was a magic in the room that you could feel as soon as you open the door. Eyes may have been a little red and there were some yawns during the Sun Salutations, but behind those heavy eyelids was a twinkle. A twinkle that only
a sticker chart a commitment and follow-through could provide.
This year, there were SIX CHAMPIONS!! Six “bright eyed and sweaty tailed” yogis attended every weekday morning 5:45 am or 6 am class in September. That is dedication, my friends. I am in awe of those who did not sleep through their alarms–not even once! In addition to those who made it to every class, there were 11 yogis who made it to 15 or more classes to earn a September Sunrise shirt.
