#SummerofPower Instagram Challenge Was a Huge Success
We did it! The #SummerofPower Instagram Challenge is complete, and 205 yogis finished and won a free month of yoga in August. It was a huge success for PFY and our winners. We send you all–including another 100 who participated–a big, squishy hug.
During the month of July, PFY posted a pose of the day in the morning on Instagram. People had to take a photo of themselves in the asana outside. It was a fun way to encouage yogis to practice everywhere in the summer–on vacation, at the beach, at the pool or at home.
It was so much fun for Kelly Cullinane, a lifeguard in Paramus. She and her coworkers posted some really great stuff at their pool. “I did yoga last summer at PFY and loved it,” she says. “This was a fun way to get back into yoga. Our team swimmers and divers loved to join in with us.” They did a tree pose in the deep end, and they also got into an amazing high crescent lunge. Kelly and another lifeguard held two swim team members above their heads on backboards. “I can’t believe the month is over!” She says it’s strange now without their daily reminder text messages, photo-editing sessions and yoga pose practices. “But now we get to attend classes at Powerflow together, which is exciting!”
George Aliaga, PFY Social Media Editor, loves how the challenge helped people bond. One day in Montclair, two yogis were on the side of the road doing the pose. Another challenger drove by and saw them. She pulled over, got out of her car, and the three yogis took their Instagram shot together.
Another winner, Dima Korya, will miss doing her poses every day. “I looked forward to it! It’s bittersweet that it’s over,” she says.
But the fun on Instagram will continue, keep following and tagging @powerflowyogaNJ. And here are some of our favorite #SummerofPower Challenge quotes:
