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 137 - Recentering

Happy Vegan Thursday!  A quick note on my eating habits.  I am still doing Meatless Monday and Tuesday.  I actually had no meat yesterday too.  It may be the people that I am surrounded by, but I also am very much more aware of what is going into my body.  I am debating putting in a third vegetarian day along with one vegan day.  I am also worried about adding too many rules into my life.  I am making sure that these rules are not bringing guilt to me, but rather are being made to improve my life.   At the same time I am pretty excited for these changes.

Early this morning I visited Alex Sanchez with Central Florida Biofeedback.  It was great timing for me, and brought me back into a focus.  He helped me discover my center.  A place I can go to when I feel overwhelmed by the rest of the world.  I feel like over the last year and a half I have really been able to focus on myself.  The world can be unforgiving and overwhelming, but it is me that needs to wake up every morning.  I am the one that will see the world I live in.  Alex helped me realize that the world around me is not the world that is inside of me.  He helped me release a ton of the weight I have been holding on to.

Then guess what.? Yoga was phenomenal.   I was at Orlando Power Yoga with Kelly Senn for the Dharma 3 class.  My balances felt so much more sturdy.  I held scorpion briefly for the first time.  I held peacock with lotus briefly for the first time.  I am feeling I am getting closer to hand stand.  It was an excellent class.  I really do believe that the more your mind becomes balanced the more your body becomes balanced, which in return the more your mind becomes balanced.  It continues on like this.  I really wish people could start to feel this sensation.  The other crazy thing that happened, was I think I may have actually seen my third eye today.  I am not going to get into details on it (in case I am just crazy), but it was pretty cool.

Today's class had a lot of friends in it too.  The studios I go to all have a different feel to them.  Some are friendly and open, others are stale and seem uninviting,  others can be mystical and magical, and then there are still others that are just hot.  They all serve their purpose.  I actually think all these types of studios are good for the soul.  Try to find the studio that fits your mood.  I go so often I like to mix it up, but today's class definitely met the mood I was in.

Thanks for the class today Kelly, and thanks for the centering today Alex!
