Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world.
– Annie Lennox
“The Ahimsa Experiment Yogi Challenge calls upon us as yogis, seekers, makers and doers to put our good intentions to work. This challenge allows us a HUGE opportunity to generate some tangible goodwill, love, and compassion. But there’s a twist, to actually make the “magic happen…”
September marks the Go OM Yourself one year anniversary! To celebrate in a way that truly corresponds with the overall intention of the Go OM Yourself brand, we’ve come up with the Ahimsa Experiment Yogi Challenge. It’s an Instagram challenge with a twist!
The challenge part of the #AhimsaExperiment is the same as any other yoga challenge…yes all the fun is still there.
Each day challenge hosts focus on a new intention and invite you to you post your representation of that intention. You connect with new like-minded instagrammers, build your following, share experiences and tell us about the gorgeous images you post. There will be giveaways for active participants, as well. The twist is “the experiment” part. This challenge has a beneficiary…a cause. For example, a women’s shelter, animals in need, clean water well for a village…we can do so much!
The Ahimsa Experiment benefits a chosen charity, with a $1-$2 entry for each challenge participant. Entry fee? Sounds weird, yes,…but, hear us out. The quick and easy-entry link funnels directly to our challenge beneficiary. So just think…if we get 500 participants at 1$ a piece, we are really generating some “goodwill and change” for souls who need it! Dang, and imagine if we have some $2 entries!
“There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”
– Dalai Lama
Let’s make some measurable magic this year
Over the past twelve months we’ve been rocking and rolling to the beat of our bad-ass insta/yogi community. It’s been fun, and damn, you guys are freaking awesome. We’ve chatted and shared pics of our beloved pets and our kids. There have been yoga challenges, sound baths, mudras and meditations in tipis! A lot of you even own one or two of our tank tops/tees and hoodies. How about we commemorate the start of our second year and put our good yogi/seeker vibes to work!
Let’s take action, to create some magic. The cool part is that, we get to SEE IT ALL HAPPENING with the #AhimsaExperiment. It’s a chance to do some bona fide goodwill, and see where our work is making a difference.
When you’re in a position to have gotten so much, the gift at this point is giving back.
– Paul Stanley
I have to say, it’s been an amazing, busy inspiring year. I love you guys and the journey we’re on together. It feels right. I think we can totally kill it with the #AhimsaExperiment and really generate giving and goodwill.
So there it is…The Go OM Yourself birthday wish, the #AhimsaExperiment (giving and generating goodwill). Are you in?
“Our inherent mission as a community of seekers is to promote joy, bold individuality and a spiritual lifestyle to color the human experience with such a vengeance, that it takes your breath away on a daily basis.

Call for Sponsors for the #AhimsaExperiment
At the moment I have two sponsors in place, but would love to have at least five more. Everyone loves giveaways! More sponsors, means more giveaways, which means more incentive for like-minded folks to participate in the challenge. If you’re a maker or have a great product and are interested in giving and generating goodwill as an #AhimsaExperiment sponsor please contact me!
