Tomorrow begins the #LightOnTheMasters Yoga Challenge on Instagram. For each day, a different yoga master and lineage will be featured (for example Ashtanga and Shri K Pattabhi Jois, Jivamukti and Sharon Gannon and David Life, etc.) with information on each presented by one of the hosts. The challenge part is for each participant to choose a pose she or he feels best honors that master/lineage. Participants have the freedom of creativity; however, for those unfamiliar with the master/lineage of the day, the host will be offering suggestions.
The hosts of the #LightOnTheMasters challenge are @twincities_yogi, @lightfulyogini, @minnesotayogini, and @yogasassygee, and they will rotate presenting the master/lineage of the day. The schedule according to a post by @twincities_yogi is as follows:
June 14: @minnesotayogini with Iyengar-BKS Iyengar
June 15: @yogasassygee with Yin-Paulie Zink
June 16: @twincities_yogi with Jivamukti-Sharon Gannon & David Life

Tomorrow I’ll be sharing a brief overview of my understanding of some of these yoga methods as I have sorted through information trying to figure out which style or styles best fit my personality and fitness goals.
