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 122 - Dharma Mittra - Day 3

It was our final day in New York with Dharma Mittra.  Again we did a level 4-5 class.  My body is pretty tired and beat up, but it was worth every bit of it.  I felt as if I was able to come to the busiest city in the world and sit amongst some of the most flexible yogi's I have ever seen.  I feel like I have a lot to learn, but also very accomplished that I was able to sit in the room with such great people.  I feel like everyone there was working on something.  I am strong in a lot of areas, and weak in some areas.  It is important for me to keep in mind that I keep humble and accept who and where I am right now.

I am bringing back a good feeling of accomplishment.  Coming here I was a little scared of not being "good" enough to be in Dharma's class.  I knew this was just something inside of my head, and pretty much shut that part of my brain off.  Anyone is good enough to sit in that class.  I realize more and more everyday that the biggest part of yoga is trying it, doing it, and practicing it.  This practice is also sooo important to apply in your life.  If you love something you need to try it, do it, and continue to practice it.  It is not anyone's responsibility but your own.  My mind always tries to speak reasons on why I shouldn't do something.  I am learning more and more on how to stop that part of my brain.  I am taking responsibility of my actions and using the 24 hours in a day the best I know how.

Life is always going to be a constant struggle on how to stay humble to myself, stay honest to myself and others, allowing others souls to grow along with my own, and keeping balance of my emotions.  I am realizing these thing more and more each day.  The class with Dharma Mittra and the trip to New York has opened my heart and life to many possibilities.  I am thankful for this experience.

I am also truly thankful to be back in Orlando with my dog.  There really is so much to be thankful for in this lifetime.  I am writing this late at night, and really need to get some sleep.  More to come.  Please send me an email or leave a comment.
