Our first Sadhana of the year will be a New Year 21 Day Sadhana instead of 40 days this time around

Welcome in the New Year with the commitment to you

We will meet every day except for Wednesdays (you will follow the recording this day as I have a private session I cannot cancel) for 21 days with a practice of 30 minutes working with the theme of Inner Prosperity – to build the characteristics that make us feel wealthy on the inside

We will meditate, warm up and do a few asanas then dip into this kriya set which is both meditative & physical.

The 21-day trial is based on the age-old belief that it takes 21 days to fully form a new habit.

When: January 15th – February 4th

Time: 7 – 7.30am CET (weekly recordings available if timing doesn’t work)

Invest: 150 euros (full payment required upon booking via Revolut or Direct Bank Transfer (details given upon booking)

Hope you can join us!

Here’s an article from Personal Excellence on why 21 days also works….

 

According to research, it takes 21 days to fully form a new habit, as 21 days is the time required for new neuropathways to be fully formed in your brain. From the Aristotle blog (site now defunct):

“Dr Maxwell Maltz wrote the bestseller Psycho-Cybernetics. Originally a Plastic Surgeon, Maltz noticed that it took 21 days for amputees to cease feeling phantom sensations in the amputated limb. From further observations he found it took 21 days to create a new habit. Since then the ’21 Day Habit Theory’ has become an accepted part of self-help programs.

Brain circuits take engrams (memory traces), and produce neuroconnections and neuropathways only if they are bombarded for 21 days in a row. This means that our brain does not accept new data for a change of habit unless it is repeated each day for 21 days (without missing a day).”

While some sources have since tried to disprove this 21-day claim, the point is that 21 days is a comfortable time period to build and maintain a new habit. During the 3 weeks, you learn what it takes to cultivate this habit and whether this is a habit you want to stick with for life.

Why do a trial?

There are 3 reasons why doing a habit trial is great.

1. Low commitment

Many people procrastinate on developing certain habits, even though these are good habits that will bring significant benefits into their lives. That’s because they are overwhelmed by the thought of doing an activity for life.

When you do a 21-day habit trial, the task becomes much more manageable. 21 days is just 3 weeks — much shorter than the rest of your life. It’s easy to channel your efforts and make something happen for just 21 days vs. forever.

Since it’s a trial, you do not need to commit beyond the 21 days. After the trial, you decide whether your life is better off with or without that habit. If you like this habit, you can continue with it. If you don’t like it, you can revert to what you were doing before. No obligations!

2. Great way to try new things

A 21-day habit trial creates a great experimental ground to try new things — for example, meeting someone new every day, messaging a new stranger on a dating app daily, trying a new diet, or pitching your products to a new company daily. You can easily embark on new, exciting activities with this habit trial. Since you are not committing to this habit beyond 21 days, you can chuck it aside if you don’t like it. It’s as simple as that 🙂

The 21-day trial has helped me try out interesting activities and pick up extremely good habits along the way. I have done 21-day fitness trials, 21-day raw diets, 21-day social media detoxes, and a 21-day fast. Many people often say “This is not for me” before they try something.  The whole point is to experience it for yourself, because you never know what it is like until you try it out. Not only do you get to practice self-discipline, but you try out something new, and you have the evidence to discontinue if it doesn’t turn out well. Again, if you don’t like it, there’s no need to continue beyond the 21 days.
