Following is a Facebook message from Alisa Loigman a yogi from Bikram Yoga Kearny Mesa, San Diego, California. I hope you don’t mind me posting your message here Alisa, but I thought it truly inspiring, not just for yogis at Kearny Mesa, but everyone around the world doing the Global Bender Challenge. Thanks Alisa!
“Today is June 15th and we are officially half way through the June Bender, 30-day challenge. Congratulations to all of you who are participating. Everyone has stayed so effortlessly enthusiastic! There is a small group of you yogis doing doubles some days- to all of you, keep up the momentum! And to those of you challenging yourself to do 30 classes in 30-days or just step up your regular practice, you are all a joy to watch- I personally have loved experiencing the vibrant group energy in classes that I take with you. I also have noticed that through this challenge many students are making new friends and having pre yoga social time in the lobby- I encourage you to get to know one another, through each other you can find and share great encouragement- everything is easier with support! You can easily spot the other challenge participants as they mark their accomplishments on the challenge board.
Here is an extra thought for all of you to ponder- This is a 30 day challenge, and come June 30th you will have officially reached your personal June goals. Just because the 30 days is over does not mean you should stop there. Come back for day 31, 32 and eventually it will become day 45 or even day 60! Imagine the possibilities then! You are all on such a roll, challenge yourself to take that extra step or two, come to class on July 1st.
I will be there, hopefully, so will you too!
You are all awesome!”
From, Alisa Loigman
Just so you know, Alisa has just informed me that BY Kearny Mesa has 50 yogis signed up for the Global Bender.. Wow great to have you all aboard!

thanks for sharing that Alisa!
sounds like your studio is a great place.
I will certainly go beyond the 30 days. Frankly, I am a bit scared that I will fall into sort of a black whole if I don’t go on July 1st but that aside, it would just be a shame not to make use of all this energy for a few days longer.
Good on you Marina, I’ll be there with you 😉
