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 79 - Gentle day

It is late.  I had a log day working today.  I felt like we accomplished a lot at work today, and was happy with everyone.  I got home and decided to do yoga at home tonight.  I am on a schedule this week to not push myself.  To not force things that are not needed to be forced.  Let my mind just be at ease and not look for thoughts in my head, but rather just notice my thoughts and recognize, accept them,and watch them float on by.

That said I decided to do a new yoga for me tonight.  I know so many different postures. I thought it would be nice to spend 60 minutes just listening to my body and letting it decide where to go.  I treated myself to very gentle and almost yin class.  It felt really good.

After yoga I still needed to write this blog.  I found myself trying to force something out.  I found myself not wanting to write this blog.  I found myself just wanting a break from this blog.  I have written everyday.  I am listening to my mind saying you have to do this, you have to say something inspirational, life changing, something....

So my big inspirational lesson for the day is relax, be gentle, and do not force things.   Easy.  Have a good night.
