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 146 - Resolution

Tonight I did a gentle yoga class by myself at home.  I was up in Jacksonville for the night so I did not have time to go to class.  I really do love these check in sessions with myself.  I did a combination of a flow and Yin yoga class.  I listened to my body and stretched what felt like needed to be streatched, I rested what I felt needed to be rested, and I pushed the areas I wanted to work on.  At the same time I found a good meditative state.

Coming into 2013 I am making a promise to this blog that I am going to stay completely honest with myself and my readers.  I am not going to blog and give inspirational speaches of how we can all find happiness or our happy ending, but rather be completely honest with my emotions and the way I feel. 

I hope the best for all of us in 2013, but lets be honest.  We are all going to have "bad" days in the upcoming year.  These are part of our lives.  I have been watching a lot of yoga documentaries and reading a lot of blogs, and I used to wonder if these people ever have a bad day.  They seem very much at ease, so peaceful, and as if they have it all figured out.  Do the great yoga guru's get pissed off if they get cut off in traffic, or do they always just live in a moment of Zen.  Even if they do have this constant deep mediative state, I am not there, and I won't be in 2013.

I plan on taking 2013 on with honesty and acceptance of where I currently am in my life.  I plan on taking it on with determination and  I am excited to go into the world with an open heart.  I am looking to learn from the world in hopes of becoming a better person for this world.  I will look for opportunities that are in front of me, and I will take them.  I will both succeed and fall flat on my face with these new opportunities.  I will do this gaining the knowledge that I took these opportunities and did not let them pass on by.

My New Years resolution is to continue to make resolutions throughout the year.  Yoga 308 is all about promises and resolutions.  I promised to do yoga 6 days a week.  I promised to blog 7 days a week.  I have two vegetarian days.  I have 1 Vegan day.  My resolution is to continue to find ways to grow.  Take chances, fight my fears, and fall on my face a few times this year.

2013 will have it's ups and downs.  I am excited for the journey I am about to partake in for 2013!!!
