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 80 - Accepting.

I went to Orlando Power Yoga class tonight with Kelly Senn.  If I have not dropped her link yet here is her website.  Orlando Power Yoga.  Kelly's class was a hot flow class which was a much needed class.  I was brain dead after a ton of meetings at work today and needed a break from thinking.

I feel like I had a pretty big breakthrough in the last week.  I feel like I have been searching for answers to some of my life's questions.  Like I am supposed to have some giant breakthrough and life would return to normal. The big breakthrough for me is that there probably is no big breakthrough, my life is already normal.  I do not have to spend my whole life looking for answers, but rather living my life.  The "now" is more about accepting who I am rather then trying to find answers to why I am not who I am.

This is the other side of what I have learned.  I have also not accepted who I am in this moment.  I keep trying to live in the now, but I feel like I am supposed to be doing something else.  At times I try to force my self to live in the now, but this in reality is not living in the now.  Forcing myself to be someone or somewhere else is not living in the now.

Tonight in class I took things a little less seriously.  I did not try to think about what I was thinking (I hope that sentence makes since), or force myself into a deeper stretch, but rather just be happy of where I am right now.  Accept who I am :)

On a side not I love how my dog gets so excited when I first wake up.  He is soooo excited to start his day every single day.  I would love to have his enthusiasm to get up, go outside, play, eat, and walk around exploring.  It is such a simple and basic life.  We complicate so much as humans, but dogs just accept life.  They find joy in the smallest of things.  Maybe we should listen more to our dogs.

I am having a busy week this week, but also very happy and excited.  Hope you are having a lot of fun today.  Send me an email or write a comment.
