Apollo Power Yoga

As the studio in New Zealand which provides yoga practices based on the teachings of Baron Baptiste, the founder of Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga, Apollo Power Yoga is proud to give its students the opportunity to take part in the 40 Days to Personal Revolution programme.

This programme spring-cleans your life and lets you breathe, move and live from a yogic way of being.  It's much more than a simple challenge to practice asana daily - because if nothing else in your life changes, then nothing else changes!

Throughout the 40 Days programme, a daily asana practice acts as a springboard to incorporate meditation, personal inquiry, yoga philosophy and nutritional knowledge into your life.

This programme is not of our invention.  It was devised by Baron Baptiste and is detailed in his book, 40 Days to Personal Revolution.  All studios following the Baptiste methodology throughout the world regularly offer this programme to help their students delve deeper into the benefits of a full yoga practice.

The classes at Apollo Power Yoga during the 40 days programme are based on the practices assigned for each week of the programme.  If you choose to practice at Apollo during the programme you will be getting the practice intended by the programme, but you can also do the practices at home, or practice at another studio if you prefer. 

This programme requires a commitment from you, to yourself and your personal growth.  It requires a commitment of time – the more so the deeper we go into the 40 days, as our twice daily meditations increase in length from 5 to 30 minutes and our asana practice increases in length from 20 to 90 minutes.  There is also a commitment required to a nutritional focus, intended to help you find your healthiest way of feeding your body.  Finally, you are asked for commitment to personal inquiry and being prepared to work through your limiting self-beliefs and come into a lighter, more powerful way of being.

Cost:  $350 ($150 for Apollo annual members).  This covers weekly workshops and materials, including Baron Baptiste’s textbook, 40 Days to Personal Revolution.  For non-members it also includes an unlimited 40-day pass to practice at any of Apollo’s classes. You will also receive daily e-mails to keep you inspired and on track.

The weekly workshops are, at the outset, around 60 to 75 minutes long but increase to around 2½ hours for the final workshop of the 40 days.  If you’re unable to attend some of the weekly workshops, you can still participate in the programme.  We will email you with all of the materials you will need, and you can call or email Hamish or Margo to discuss any questions or issues that you have with the programme.

People often ask whether it is necessary to be at every weekly workshop and whether they have to do every meditation and every asana practice during the 40 days.  How much you put into the programme is up to you.  The greater your commitment to and engagement in the process, the greater will be the rewards.  There are no penalties for not meditating or not practising, other than the loss of the opportunity.

This programme is for you to step into a new and more powerful way of being that will bring benefits in your sense of self-esteem and the quality of your relationships with those in your life.  Make the commitment now.

Next programme will begin Sunday 7 May at 6:00pm with weekly workshops at the same time until 11 June.  To register your interest:
