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 150 - Let the journey begin - Asheville
The truck ride gave me 9 hours to think. Long road trips are perfect for that. It is a mental cleanse for me. I have a lot of things I try to do at home (work, paint, blog, yoga, dog, clean, ect). When I am on the road I cannot do any of these things so it gives me a moment of peace. I feel as if I am moving in a forward direction towards some goal.
I am on a soul search for the next few months. I am going out into the world with an open heart. I am excited to learn from my upcoming experiences. I am beginning to feel more and more like the world is moving around me. Not in a snobby selfish way. It is more of a feeling that the world, good or bad is working the way it is supposed to. I am not trying to figure things out, but rather opening my heart to giving back to the world and watching events that unfold. It is really a cool and uplifting feeling.
Tonight I got into Asheville at 8:00. After walking the dog and eating dinner I decided to do "man's Sugar Bowl yoga." Basically, I watched Florida get killed by Louisville while doing yoga. It was a nice hour to stretch out the parts from my long drive. I admit that I was not taking the breathing and mental part of yoga seriously tonight. It did feel good to loosen up my back and do a headstand and handstand. I look forward to Lewis's class tomorrow morning.
