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 60 - Dharma day
Last night I ended up going to Orlando Power Yoga with Alex McCullough. She put on a very good class. If you read yesterdays blog I was trying my best to get out of a funk and once again find the present. I was thinking the yoga class would snap me out of it, but I was unsuccessful. I was just down in the dumps yesterday. I could not pinpoint why I was feeling down, and I wrote it off on the weather. Looking back I woke up and did not want to get out of bed. I had a negative outlook when I got out of bed. This carried out through out the day. I actually started to get frustrated with myself because I felt like I shouldn't be feeling this way. I did not have a good reason.
When I started this blog I did not want to fluff things up and act like I am always the go lucky happy person, or that I have found complete enlightenment through yoga. I have off hours, days, weeks, months, years. I am human. I am happy to say that since I have been doing yoga308 I have only had off hours or at the most a day.
I have been talking a lot about trying to live in the now. Yesterday I could not get there, but when I woke up this morning I was back. I woke up with a fresh new look and excitement for the day. I got out of bed with a positive outlook. I know a lot of people believe to the extreme that if they think positively then the world will be positive around them. This is not what I am trying to accomplish. I am looking to keep positive in my mind, but do not expect the world to fall inline with me. I am going to accept the days that I feel sad, mad, angry, or any of these "negative" emotions as they are part of life. Sometimes I will fall back into the past or look into the future. I am going to focus more and more on trying to live in the now. However, just like I will not have both of my legs behind my head tomorrow, I will not find this "now" tomorrow. I will keep humble with myself and allow my mind and life to have as many faults and flaws needed to help grow.
I am off to do more moving. Have a great day everyone, or have an off one.
