“The brave heart of a yogi is defined by actions that make the world a better place.”
Live with authenticity. Practice patience. Let go of negativity. These are some of the core tenets of a yoga lifestyle, on and off the mat. Yoga is about much more than twisting yourself into shapes—the heart of this ancient practice is an inner journey, one of reflection, spiritual awakening, and ultimately a calm, clear mind.
The Yogi Assignment is a 30-day introduction to these life-affirming and simple—yet revolutionary—principles. Led by master Ashtanga yoga teacher Kino MacGregor, this journey will challenge and uplift your body, mind, and spirit. Each day offers a practice and meditation that will help you confront your emotional, physical, and mental limitations and inspire real change in your life. MacGregor is a fierce, loving guide who encourages you to look deeply within to find your wellspring of inner strength and courage.

The Yogi Assignment
A 30-Day Program for Bringing Yoga Practice & Wisdom to Your Everyday Life.
I ask you to take a yoga journey with me . . .
Stillness | Nirodah
Get into a comfortable seated position and close your eyes. Bring your mind’s point of attention to your heart center. Feel your sternum and chest. Be aware of your breath as it moves in and out of your lungs.
Vulnerability | Arakshitah
Every one of us has experienced trauma to varying degrees, whether physical, relational, environmental, financial, or some other form. Most often, traumatic experiences leave a kind of emotional scar tissue around the heart, mind, or body.
Cleanliness | Saucha
In many ways, cleansing is kind of a modern trend. Detoxification is a catchword, not only for yoga classes but also for many holistic health remedies and treatments. However, according to the yoga tradition, saucha has a spiritual intention.
Once you embody the brave heart of the yogi, every action flows from a place of deep inner resolution, and you will be a force of healing in the world.
