Sorry you interpreted our comments as negative. I think we all like the look of our own posts so much that we couldn't imagine just saying, "No, haven't tried it," and letting it go at that. I loved your comment that you know your yoga and your body well enough to use this economical resource wisely. That relieved any concerns I had that you might injure yourself.
I think we all need to check this list out, www.mindbodygreen.com/0-10923/15-sig

Ummm, perhaps spark members can read my question before replying. I simply asked if anyone else in this YOGA FORUM had completed this YOGA CHALLENGE.

I understand that maybe it isn't a format some people would enjoy. There are numerous styles, teachings and practices available in a variety of price ranges. I personally do not enjoy Bikram, although I know it has grown tremendously in popularity. That does not mean I have to find a Bikram thread to tell people I dislike the practice.

I miss my classes and my class mates since I moved and I have tried to find something local. THE STUDIOS ARE TOO EXPENSIVE. This is a very affordable option that I have chosen to explore. I just wondered if anyone else had explored it, also.

Please remember the golden rule and keep future negative comments to yourself.

First time I heard of this if it is the Travis Eliot dvd. I've heard of the Tony Horton P90X Yoga X. In either case, I don't think I would like it because it is expensive for me and I don't imagine myself tied to a 108 day journey. I prefer to explore yoga day by day, I like the 21 day Yoga Journal Challenges, which are FREE and give enough variation from instructor to instructor and session to session, and still I don't follow every day.

Listening to the body is essential in Yoga practice and I listen. Also if I'm going to pay $108.00, I would prefer a certified instructor in an studio guiding me in to get the poses right . In my area the classes are not that expensive(I live in a little town with only one studio in town).

If you follow this program let us know your experience, what you like, what you don't like, how you manage to fit it in your daily life, the benefits you are having in your body and mind...Thanks for let us know about this program.

The cost is much less than a single class where I live. $89 for the program versus $225 and up per month for a yoga studio. There are no community center programs in my area and I don't like Bikram or power yoga provided by the couple gyms that are close.

For me, yoga is always about listening to what the body can handle. I have enough experience that I can modify wherever I need to. I just started, so I am on the 10 minutes of meditation, although I currently do 15-20 minutes a day. I don't double up, but I did adjust my schedule.

I was just wondering if anyone had completed, or even started and not completed, the program.

For me yoga is not hard core exercise, but a flowing experience and interchange between my mind and body.

Pixie - you mean:
www.theultimateyogi.com/ ?

To me it seems a bit rigid.
And it takes much time - meditating 30 mins a day plus doing a class ?

And its a bit expensive. Is there a personal coaching included?
Maybe the price could be a good motivation....

Ultimate Yogi is a 108 day challenge. It is called the p90x for yoga. I would have been better prepared a year ago, but no time like the present. :)

I am curious, what is the 108 day challenge? I now do yoga 6 days a week. I need the day of rest.
I have only been doing this since Feb, but I love it.

Has anyone on here completed the 108 day challenge? Today was day one for me. I'm hoping I am better able to keep up as the days progress.

I admit that I have allowed myself to lose my way and become sedentary and put on about 25 pounds over the past year and a half. Time to move it move it again. :) I moved and never found a class I like out here. Need some MOTIVATION!!
