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 130 - Yoga people

Today I feel extremely calm.  The knowledge is in my head that everything is in place.  Everything is where it is supposed to be.  Everything is going to be OK.  I am accepting that life is filled with good and bad.  I am aware of people around me.  I am grateful for people around me.  I am liking people around me.

Today was the Dharma Level 3 class with Kelly Senn at Orlando Power Yoga.  It was great to be in the Dharma class today.  I was pushing myself today, but also laying off in the postures that pushed my knee and shoulder.  I have decided to take it easy during class this week.

One of my favorite thing in Orlando Power Yoga is the people.  I love all the different types of people in that class.  There are so many different types of personalty.  Some I click with, while others I don't, but we are all in there to do yoga, and everyone pulls together as a community.   I get this in the other yoga studios too.  The yoga community gives me such a warm feeling inside.

Today there were a lot of good people in the class.  We were missing Marianne as she was away for heartbreaking personal issues.  I did however feel such a warm concern from so many people wondering how she was doing.  It made me feel good that so many people have such a great appreciation and concern for a wonderful and deserving individual.    There was a genuine feeling of love in the air today.  Well there was also a lot of sweat too.

I am seeing how much I need people in my life.  I have lived a life of trying to figure out everything on my own.  Trying to construct a philosophy and happiness that would work for me.  I wanted to figure out something where I did not have to rely on people or depend on people.  This is no longer my life.  My life needs people.
