What is Yoga 308

Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 24 - My home


It was a day of the "dreaded" HOT yoga at OPY. I was actually excited to go since I had not been to the hot yoga studio since last Thursday. The class was with a teacher I had not had before Gregg Duke. It was a fun class.

I came into class with a focus tonight. Tonight was about acceptance. I had mentioned this once before, but I tend to love to do so many different things in my life. Lately I have been a bit frustrated that I did not paint in the last couple of weeks. I love to paint pictures, but all this time I have devoted to yoga has shifted my time away from other things. I need to accept that I only have 24 hours in the day, and my time I have spent over the last year has been so positive. I need to focus on how grateful I am that I have so many positive things in my life.

Since my divorce I have been trying to ground and find what I consider "my home" I feel like I have been floating around for the last year, and have embraced the float. Sometime the river had me float lazily down a stream while other days there were a lot of rapids.

I have kept trying to tell myself that I NEED to root. I NEED to find my home. I NEED to find security. As I focused in on acceptance tonight I realized that as I thought I have been floating downstream. I have already began to set roots. I have met so many good people lately, started to blog, doing lots of yoga, painting, traveling, and learning so much. So many good things are happening with my life. I felt extremely blessed and happy tonight. So many people have been reaching out to me lately. Old friends, new friends, family. It is something I feel almost overwhelmed in love and support today. So to everyone reading this. Thank you.

They say home is where the heart is. My heart right now is on a yoga mat. It was a hot sweaty mat tonight, and who knows which mat I will be on tomorrow. It is my root and my security.

Where is your place of roots, security, and your home. Email me and send me a comment.

Oh and if there are any yogi scientists out there. I am noticing that I yawn every time that I get into the wheel pose. I mean every time I do it. Anyone know?
