Many of you pushed yourselves outside of your comfort zone to try new things & break out of your habitual patterns, twas very inspiring to be around : )
We are so thrilled with the level of participation (OVER 80 people!) and fun this challenge provided the community here at One Tribe and beyond! New friends, some great photos from all around the plaza and Tempe and lots of fun stories on ‘getting a row completed’!
Many of you pushed yourselves outside of your comfort zone, and we saw how it lit you up & inspired you to become a better version of YOU. This pays great dividends down the path of life when challenges arise, nice work.
As promised, we have 20 wonderful gifts for your efforts, and this coming Saturday evening we’re delivering!
Come join us Saturday the 14th @ 7:30pm
Tempe Public Market Cafe
A gathering to present prizes, tell stories and just have a good excuse to hang out with the tribe outside the studio, in normal clothing!
Welcome to the official X/O page!
We love you and can’t wait to see how you all do with the challenge! This page is here to help explain the rulez, description of the squares in detail, prizes and a place to print out your official X/O sheet.
RULEZ OF PLAY:
No talking with your mouth full.
Each time you complete a row, you will earn 10,000 points. Completing a row means connecting an X to an O across 6 squares in whichever order you choose. They do not need to be done in a specific order, they just all need to be completed from X to O. This can be horizontally, vertically and diagonally. Make as many of these connections as you can during the length of the challenge! You may not repeat a row and each square is it’s own task/challenge. (For example, posting a review doesn’t mean you can check off all the other review squares, each one is it’s own) When you complete each square, get a sticker and apply it to your sheet hanging in the lobby. Once a row is complete, snap a pic of it and send it to the office phone 480-676-9642 via text message for official review.
As you earn points you will climb up the leader board! The leader board will be on display in the studio on the chalk wall near the refreshments as well as on the lobby digital screen. Please don’t alter the leader board. If you are caught tampering with the leader board, you are subject to removal of the game, termination of your membership, severance of one limb (of choice) and up to 3 years washing Jason and Kerri’s car weekly & brushing Jira’s teeth monthly.
25,000 point row released!
Come and pick up a new addition to your board! Tape this sucker up there and get inspired to take more pics, meet more people and help spread some love and joy!! Even if you are just starting, this row can give you just the jump start you need! Whooo!
NOTE: This new row is not to be combined with any other columns, it functions as it’s own row, and should be turned in as such when completed. As per the rules, each time you complete a row, take a pic of it and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so the judges can commence their vetting process.
(UPDATED) DEFINITION OF EACH SQUARE:
Yoga, then coffee – Time to go meet someone you haven’t really met yet, and go enjoy a cup of tea, coffee, or whatever a the cafe or somewhere else! Each entry into this one gets you into a separate raffle! It’s a drawing for a nice size card at the Cafe or Ghost Ranch! Enter as many times as you want! No restrictions. To enter, post a pic of your experience and please tag it: #1tribeyoga #xochallenge #yogathencoffee
Stop, Drop & Yoga – Snap a pic of you in public somewhere when you’re feeling the yoga coming on, rocking your favorite (or least favorite!) yoga pose! If you can organize it with OT gear than you have some super high fives coming your way, but it’s not required. This is meant to feel spontaneous and maybe a touch vulnerable or uncomfortable. It will pass. Breathe through your nose and feel the pose in it’s entirety ; ) Post it to your social, tag us, have fun! #1tribeyoga #xochallenge #stopDropYoga
Water & One Tribe – Slap a sticker on your car’s bumper and take us to beach! : ) It’s hot and we’d like to live vicariously through your lens, near some agua! Take one of the OT stickers for a trip of your choice! How long of a trip is totally up to you. We gotta see a sticker in this pic anyway you cut it. Either on your car or on your face, your choice, but we gotta see some kind of water in this pic! Have fun! Post it and tag us #1tribeyoga #xochallenge #h2otyw
Ride Bike to Yoga – One person per bike please and be careful out there! Helmets are suggested and drink plenty of water. We have ample bike parking under the palm tree outside our front door. Enjoy the exercise and notice any urges that rise from seeing others inside their air conditioned car. For the photo, a stationary photo to play it safe please! Post it and tag us: #1tribeyoga #xochallenge #biketoyoga
Class Photo – Ok here is your big chance to learn a little Sanskrit & celebrate the moment with the tribe after class with a photo! In this challenge, you must organize a group after class and have these postures in the photo: Post & tag: #1tribeyoga #xochallenge #yogaClassPic
CLASS TAKEN = POSES NEEDED: Ashtanga, Vinyasa or Slow Flow Classes: 1. Vriksasana 2. Utthita Trikonasana 3. Utkatasana.
CLASS TAKEN = POSES NEEDED: Yin or Meditation Classes: 1. A pic of yourself meditating / slowing down
PHOTO TIP: Ask the teacher, or please be careful & raise the blinds and turn the lights on in the yoga studio to get better lighting! Try to have the group facing the windows when you take the photo, that’s the best lighting. Be creative with the angles and have some fun!
Hugs – Hugging people in general is good for the nervous system. Hugging 12 people is next level and should be done with caution as you may become nicer, more emphathic & just more human feeling after this challenge! Getting 12 in a row is the goal and is up to you, you’ll only be robbing your nervous system of any missed ones. This is going to on the honor system, the only un-trackable item on the entire board, we are putting our faith and trust into you here. 12 steady hugs, best done in one shot, so as not risk turning in a fraudulent hug count. Fraudulent hug counts are subject to withdrawal and temporary face tattoos.
3X Yoga – Taking any yoga class or meditation for 3 consecutive days in a row. Please make sure to sign in for each class, so we can track it!
Meditate – Participating in the donation group meditation on Saturdays from 5:30 to 6:30p. Sitting completely still, eyes closed, trying hard not to squirm or fidget away from sensation and simply breathe through your nose.
Carpool to Class – Save the planet, money and parking spaces by connecting with a fellow yogi and sharing a ride to and from yoga class. Bring a towel so you don’t get their car seat all wet, we’re meant to be making friends here in this challenge! Take a pic of this experience in the car, and post it with #carPoolToClass #1tribeyoga #xochallenge
Photo Challenges – Post a picture of you wearing either One Tribe Gear or displaying a One Tribe Sticker in the location or with the creature mentioned. When posting on Facebook or Instagram, use the hashtags #1tribeyoga & #xochallenge so we can track it.

Get a massage – Book any kind of massage, at any rate, with the therapist listed. This can be relaxation, therapeutic, Thai yoga body, Thai foot, cupping for 60 or 90 minutes.

Food Items: peanut butter, canned fish or chicken, beans, corn, whole grain cereal, granola bars, and oatmeal. (No these are not for Jason’s smoothie, but I would label them just…to..be…sure..) They also are short on quality kids socks & they said even gift cards at places like Target, Walmart & Fry’s.
2 Yoga Classes Back to Back – Take any two classes in a row as they appear on the schedule. Meditation does not count for this one, these must be good old fashioned breath and body classes with the Tribe!

You may need to register at these sites in order to do so, it’s free & we thank you for helping us become more visible online! Here are some places you can do that at, click the links to head there now and review: yelp – facebook – google & Mindbody app
F.S.T. – Fascial Stretching Therapy is the type of bodywork Marie S. does at One Tribe. It is a clothed modality that stretches you and bends you until you feel better than when you came in! Book her during this challenge to earn this square. You must receive the session during the duration of the challenge. No future bookings will count towards your squares, but it will count towards you feeling better and better, so keep booking! Just know at some point they won’t count towards this challenge.
Ashtanga – Take any 1 of the 4 Ashtanga classes we offer here at One Tribe. Sunday @ 12p – Monday @ 5:45p – Tues & Thurs @ 5:30am.
Massage + Yoga – You can work this one however you want, but to get this square you must do both during the same visit. Either a yoga class and then a massage , or a massage and then a yoga class. Any kind of massage, any yoga class or meditation. Remember there are towels and bathrobes to make your experience even more amazing.
7X Yoga – 7 consecutive days of yoga (Saturday meditation counts too). Please make sure to sign in for each class, so we can track it! Yes, this can be accumulated through the completion of 3 days of straight yoga!
Bring a Friend to Yoga – Bring someone who hasn’t been to a One Tribe class yet. They will need to fill out a waiver and they can be your guest, for FREE even if you aren’t a member with guest passes! But, if we catch you sneaking someone in using a fake name to get them in more than once & you getting more squares, we’ll start pulling off toenails one a time. First one of yours, then one of theirs and so on, until there are no more to pluck. We’ll then string them into a necklace and sell it, donating the proceeds to your charity of your choice. The good news is, this donation will count towards the Karma square on the board, bonus!
14x Yoga – 14 straight days of yoga and/or meditation. Please make sure to sign in for each class, so we can track it! Yes, this can be accumulated through the completion of 3 & 7 days of straight yoga!
Bring 2 Friends to a Yoga Class – Bring any two people that haven’t been yet to One Tribe. They will need to fill out a waiver and they can be your guest, for FREE even if you aren’t a member with guest passes! The same rule applies from ‘Bring a Friend to Yoga’ up above if you try and sneak someone in under a fake name.
Refer a Friend to take a Yoga Class – They don’t need to be with you for this one, but they do need to put your name in the ‘Referred by’ when they are filling out their waiver. Failure to do this may result in loss of hearing, paranoia, lack of sleep, confusion & we wouldn’t recommend operating any machinery until it’s fixed.
