The 30 day challenge

by Rebecca Louise

I love it when there is a challenge that has already been set up for me and all I have to do is complete it! The next 30 day challenge at Radiant starts on June 1st and from someone who has already done one before I cannot wait to do it again.

It takes 21 days to create a habit

They say it takes 21 days to create a habit and when you commit to this challenge you are going to receive so many benefits for your mind, body and soul along with a new formed habit to stay consistent. The challenge at radiant creates a real buzz around the studio that motivates and inspires you to give it your best over the month of June. You get to put your name on the board and give yourself a tick every day you come in! I really love that they do this because you can visually see how well you are doing. The great thing too is that if you miss a day you can double on another day to get 30 sessions in 30 days!

When you make this type of commitment to yourself you are affirming that you are worth the time to get to your mat each day. I know I have days where I feel like I have too much work to do and then find that the reason not to go to class. When my mind is clear and I have been going to practice regularly I am more efficient in the outside work. Make time for you, look after you and you will see a difference in how you are mentally and physically when it comes to your day to day life.

It is key to have the right nutrition

When you are preparing for the 30 day challenge it is key to have the right nutrition throughout. This is to fuel your body to be able to do the physical activity, to repair your muscles from the tension you put them under and also to get the best results. Nutrition takes up 80% of what your body looks like and fitness is the other 20%. You cannot train and get great results when you do not have a balanced diet. I always make sure that I am preparing my body with the best ingredients in order to maximize my performance and get the best results physically More information on nutrition on my website along with customized meal plans.

Sweat during classes

Due to the amount you sweat during a class your hydration levels will go down over the 30 days which is why you want to up your water intake. Aim to drink 3 – 4 liters of water a day to replenish your body. It is also advised to have electrolytes in your water too that will aid in hydration. For every 2% that your body is under its maximum hydration level your body works at 20% less efficiency. Water is crucial for performance and weight loss. Start to increase your water 4-5 days prior to June 1st to get you body ready!

You need to rest

Rest is actually one of the biggest parts to getting results both mentally and physically. Our bodies have to rest in order to repair and they need to repair in order to grow lean muscle mass and to function at our optimal level. Making sure you get 6-8 hours of sleep each night will maintain your strength over the 30 day challenge. A lack of sleep will effect your ability to perform in class, your form will be compromised which can lead to injury and further fatigue.

Commit to yourself for 30 days

So just remember to fuel your body, stay hydrated, get the proper amount of rest and commit to yourself for 30 days. It is not a long time to transform your body, go in with a positive and powerful mindset and enjoy the journey. I am so excited about the challenge and I look forward to meeting everyone else!

Teacher Training At Radiant

Article by Rebecca Louise

There is not one person who has been through the Radiant Teacher Training that has not been enlightened by the experience. This is what makes the teacher training so unique as its more about going deep into your practice and learning about yourself than anything else. What a magical experience to go through where at the end you are filled with love, peace and passion for life.


Yoga is about the practice. The practice and development of the poses and nothing in this form can ever be perfect. I enjoy the peace of attending classes at Radiant because all judgment is left outside and you can be at peace with yourself. There is no competition, you get to focus on being you because that is enough.

The teacher training will allow you to be more confident in who you are, believe in yourself and your own abilities. What a magical journey you can go through in just eight weeks that will encourage you to be the best version of yourself.


Not only will you be able to go deeper into your practice and learn so much more about yoga but you will be on this journey with like minded people. Meeting new friends and sharing the same experience will create an incredible bond that you can see it in all the teachers at Radiant.

When you go through a journey of learning more about yourself you atomically have a connection with the people that you are doing it with. You are on the same page and have an understanding of one another. I very much felt this when I went on the retreat to Mexico with radiant. There was a sense of community right from the beginning that made everyone feel comfortable and at ease in this new environment. We were all on a similar journey of discovery and relaxation which meant there was an underline support system for us all.

This is exactly what the Teacher training journey will do for you and what it has to offer.


Not only will you come out learning new skills about you but your whole yoga knowledge will be broadened and on a whole new level. Yoga will never be the same for you, you will be able to practice through a new set of eyes and be able to take your knowledge back into the classroom.

The biggest gift that you will take from this is the ability to share what you have learned with others. Being an inspiration to other people and passing on your learnings gives us such purpose in our lives. When we have purpose we wake up every morning with excitement and drive for the new day.

Let your purpose be to help others in there time of need, to share with them things that you have learned at Radiant to have a positive attitude to the world.


For us to be able to look after other we must start with being able to fully look after ourselves. It is important to give yourself the gift of personal enrichment so that you can be the best version of you and make the biggest impact on those around you.

The training that you will receive from Radiant will have a life long effect on you and the changes it can make within yourself to enrich you will be unforgettable. Give yourself the gift of teacher training, give yourself the gift to further your practice and to fill your life to the fullest. It is great timing as the new teacher training starts in January.

It is a new year, with a new start and 2016 is about you.

The training starts on January Friday 15th, consisting of 8 weeks that take you through to March Sunday 13th.

  • Friday’s you will be with us 7-11pm.
  • Saturday and Sunday we start at 8:30am through to 5:00pm.
  • The cost of the course is $3800.00.
