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 64 - Yoga high!!!

I went back to my home base today.  I did not realize it, but it has been about 3 weeks since I last went to an Ashtanga class.  Tonight I was back with Steve Rubin at Full Circle Yoga.  It made me feel as if I was born again.  I woke up this morning in my new home, and had a fresh outlook at things.  I felt really good.  I was still getting over my cold, but I am amazed on how quickly I overcame this cold.  Typically a sinus cold like this will knock me out for about 2 weeks, but this time I feel like I beat it.

Tonight in my class I felt like I went deeper then I have ever been in my postures.  I felt a little weak at times, but pushed through it and went deeper.  I am not sure what it was tonight, but it made me feel really good.  I looked back of the growth I have accomplished over the last year.  I am really proud of what I am growing into.

I am pretty excited also that I took these yoga posture pictures when I did.  They were never meant to be something to show how deep I can go, but rather where I was at the beginning of all of this.  I can now look back 10 months from now and compare pictures.

So something today boosted my excitement level.  I am excited for yoga, I am excited for work, I am excited for another year in Orlando, I am excited for life.  Was it the fact that I was in the dumps last week.  Was it the fact that I was sick.  Was it the fact that I just moved into a new house.  I think it was just a part of life.  It was where I was last week, and it makes where I am now that much better.  I found the now again today and in yoga tonight.

I am in such a high tonight I really do not feel like blogging tonight.  So I am going to enjoy the now, and get back to you tomorrow on how everything went.  In fact I am not even going to reread this and just put this out as is.  Go enjoy the rest of your day people!!!!
