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 88 - Overthinking Worrier

Happy Vegan Thursday!

Today I went to Dharma yoga with Kelly Senn at Orlando Power Yoga.  She started teaching a little bit of Series 3 which was pretty fun.  She also is now offering it twice a week which I am very pumped for. 

I honestly have been having a bit of an issue getting excited for yoga and blogging since I have returned from Denver.  I am not sure exactly what it is, but I am trying my best not to over think it.  I am definitely an over thinker.

My brain and emotions have been going pretty much all over the place today.  I wish people could sometimes slice my brain open to see all the things that go on inside of there.  I am not sure when it became so complicated.

I think I spend a lot of time worrying in life.  I worry that I am running from something, trying to escape, or how I am going to be perceived in certain areas.  I worry about not having enough money, not doing the right thing, or emotionally hurting somebody.  I can worry myself and over think things a little too much.

I also feel like I go out searching for answers. Some questions do not have or even need answering though.  I can however sometimes keep searching for these answers.  I would love to keep searching for answers in hopes that one day it might be able to be summarized in one word.

In other words...My brain is my worst enemy.  My thoughts are the only true thing that causes me stress.  They are the only true thing stand in my way.

Yoga is very important to me, but I am very tired of it this week.  I am dragging.  My right hamstring hurts,  my left shoulder is hurting, and emotionally I feel a bit drained.  I am trying my best to pick myself up and have fun again.

  1. Hi Danny, I feel the same lately. Injury, autumn, dark and cold... I think one shouldn't be too stringent about himself. Try to calm down, relax, sit and meditate or go for a massage. Or just do a few of your favourite asanas. It usually works for me.
