21 Day Challenge

Please read below to find answers to your frequently asked questions and comments about the
21-Day Yoga Challenge.

Why does the video stop after just a few minutes?

Video streaming time is a function of Internet connection speed. If you have a slow connection, the video will take longer to load. If you try to watch the video before it loads completely, it will stop playing until more of the video is loaded. Try letting the video download completely and then playing it.

The volume is too low. How can I change it?

If you are having trouble hearing the videos, you should check the volume controls in three places: the computer speakers, the Windows audio player, and on the videos themselves. If you are watching the videos on a laptop computer, you may want to hook up external speakers, as laptop speaker quality can be thin.

Some of the videos are too hard and some are too easy. Why aren't they the same level?

The Challenge presents a range of yoga sequences to demonstrate the kinds of options you have for a home practice. Some of the videos are more demanding, for when you have lots of energy and want a challenging workout, while others are more gentle, for those times that you just want a soothing, mindful practice. You should go at your own level and modify any practice as needed.

We urge you to first try all of the videos in the order we've laid out. But if you decide one day that you want something more vigorous than Kate Holcombe's Shoulder Openers practice, for example, you can click on a different day's video from the More Sequences option on the Challenge site. The 21-Day Yoga Challenge newsletter describes each day's video and its length, so you will know what to expect for that practice.

Why won't the videos play on my computer?

If you are using a much older version of a web browser, you may need to update the program to be able to view the videos. Updates are available for free on browser websites.

Can I download the Challenge and watch the videos later?

The 21-Day Yoga Challenge isn't currently available for download. However, you can come back to the site any time and navigate through the Challenge using tools like the More Sequences section and Audio Meditation for each week to follow along on your own schedule.

I thought the practices were all 15 minutes long. Why are they longer?

There are a range of practices and practice lengths in the 2013 21-Day Yoga Challenge. Some practices are meant to be about 15 minutes, some are about 30 minutes, and others, like Elise Lorimer's Fun Flow practice, can be up to 45 minutes. Due to extra instruction and introductions, the videos may run longer than they normally would if done on your own. You can modify the length by forwarding through introductions you've already watched or by taking a few extra minutes in Savasana, for example.

Can I buy the 21-Day Yoga Challenge videos?
