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 26 - Brain Fart


Tonight I went into Orlando Power Yoga for more a meditative yoga with Michelle and some Crystal bowls. Like I have talked about before there are all sorts of yoga out there. This one was much more of a slow meditative yoga that lead up to a great meditative session with crystal bowl and a bit of Reiki. It was actually what my body has been calling for. I have been pushing my body a little extreme lately.

My brain is on a daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa mode right now. I am kind of out of it because of the meditation. I have been working really hard on the physical side of yoga it is nice to come back to the mental side of things. For those non yogis. I feel like I have been going to the gym and tonight I hung out with a bunch of hippies.

I have smoked a lot of pot in my life time, and as you know I am now a sober individual for 8 years. There are times when I go to certain places and I feel as if I would understand some things if I was stoned. Tonight was one of those nights.

That said I found my groove and found my own yoga high. Crystal bowls are really cool. The sound at times can overwhelm you. It is really hard to explain, but I just listened to the bowls. It brought me into a deeper meditation. I was having some crazy visions coming in and out of my brain (Alpha waves). I remember at one point being in the dark room in high school. Something that I have not thought of since probably high school. I was in a waken dream state. Way cool.

After 30 minutes of laying in savasana I was pretty out of it. There is a lot to the spiritual side of yoga, and I do not smoke pot. Actually, I feel like I am able to go deeper into my conscious now because I do not smoke pot any more. I think I am mentioning this so that the people that think yoga is for a bunch of hippies will give this a try, and also the people that smoke weed before class to try it out without smoking and see what they find.

So how do you tap into your subconscious / conscious? Send me an email or post a comment. I look forward to hearing from all the hippies and gym rats.
