Day Christensen took up the practice of yoga in 2004 when she was drawn to the elusive peacefulness and glow that so many yoga practitioners seemed to have.

She quickly became drawn to the Mysore style practice of Ashtanga yoga as she recognized that the student’s potential for growth superseded what she had experienced in other styles.

Soon began her life was scheduled around her yoga practice, and her late nights and unhealthy habits stopped. After 3 trips to Mysore, Day was given the blessing to teach as an Authorized Level 2 teacher. Due to years of suffering from persistent back pain, Day felt that that the system of learning yoga asanas could be improved.

Rather than set the sequences of the Ashtanga system, groups of asanas should be given according to each student’s current and developing postural needs.

The DAY1YOGA Method was born: A tailored and customizable practice without posture- or series-hierarchy.

This incorporates the element of 1 to 1 instruction of the Mysore style, of 1:1 instruction with each person working according to their own needs, ability, and pace, but with a reassessment of the series and order of postures.

There is zero delineation between “advanced” and “beginner” students. Day sees students as just people with issues, all there for the healing and strengthening modality that yoga should be.
