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 153 - Stay balanced

Greetings from Denver, CO.  It is nice to be with my friends out here.  After a 5 hour drive I made it here with plenty of time to hang out in Denver.  I even was able to show my friends Dave and Kelly the primary Ashtanga series.  I have been doing this series so much it is pretty much engraved in my head.  Sharing yoga with my close friends brought a big smile to my face.

I still have a cough and a head cold, and am fighting that, but I am really excited to be back in Colorado.  There really is a lot to do in this state.

I was surprised on how calm I feel after driving for the last 4 days.  I feel as if I have gained some clarity with lots of time to think.  Long drives really do give me clarity. 

I have been really kind of scared lately of someday becoming a person who is lost in my own world.  I have seen so many people like yogis who no longer connect with the world.  They become so sure of their thoughts and beliefs that they forget about others beliefs.  They forget about others struggle to grow.  They forget that they still need to search for answers.  I do not want to become this person.  I want to stay balanced with this world.

I want to live in reality and still be able to grow and dive deeper inside my soul.  I want to love and respect all living beings, but yet understand and accept that I am still working through a lot in my life.  There is currently "negative" thoughts in my head (and that is OK).

After 153 days of this yoga adventure I love yoga.  I hope for it to always be a part of my life.  I want to take 2013 as an opportunity to grow, live, love, and become one with my emotions through yoga.
