Yoga was a huge passion of mine before I had kids. I practiced 3 times on average per week, and once I really got into it, I felt more peace practicing yoga than I felt doing anything else.

I have wanted to get back into it for a while – what mom doesn’t need a little more peace – but hadn’t had a huge push to make it a regular part of my day. Then I heard about The Ultimate Yogi.

It’s a 108-day program, put together by yoga instructor Travis Eliot, that is supposed to completely transform your mind and body. Sounds great, right? I’m going to start the program next week, but to hold myself accountable to it, I’m writing about it first!

The Ultimate Yogi program consists of 12 DVDs.

  1. Yoga Crosstrain
  2. Yoga Cardio
  3. Yoga Strength
  4. Yoga Flexibility
  5. Yoga Balance
  6. Yoga Detox
  7. Yoga Vitality
  8. Hardcore Yoga
  9. Yin Yoga
  10. Gentle Yoga
  11. Mountain Pose Series
  12. Sun Salutations

It also incorporates Pranayama and Meditation as well as healthy eating habits. The program comes with a poster that outlines which DVDs to use each day (1-2 per day) and how many minutes of meditation to do each day. Towards the end of the program, it also tells you which days to eat vegan, eat a raw diet and do a juice feast.

I love the poster because I definitely need something structured to get me back on track. And something large and visual is the best reminder!

Since removing food allergens (gluten, dairy, soy and eggs) from my diet, I have lost 24 pounds, but I don’t consider myself fit. I want to be completely healthy for my family and myself, and I’m hoping this program will get me to where I want to be.

If you’ve been thinking about taking the dive and getting fit and healthy through yoga, I challenge you to follow the yoga program along with me. Through October 31, 2012, you can get 15% off The Ultimate Yogi with discount code october15!
