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 154 - Learn from others

This morning I went to Lohi Athletic Club in Denver to take a class with Kathleen Swinbourne.   It is great to be able to get out of my norm and into some fresh new ideas and yoga classes.  This class made me very pumped for the next couple months ahead.  

I am really excited for today.  I am  also still sick.  It's a strange cold that is only really bothersome to me past 9:00.  Other then that I seem to be fine.  Do you ever notice that when you tell someone you are sick they automatically come up with answers and remedies on how to cure the common cold.  You need to take vitamins, you need to go see a doctor, you need to rest...We all do it. 

I was thinking of all the times I have given advice in my life.  How many times was that person really asking for it?  I think I tend to get excited for people when they meet on common ground, but I have really been focusing on not pushing my beliefs on people.  I have found that blogging on this page actually gives me the outlet that I need to make me feel like I am sharing something with the world.  I also paint which is another form of expression for me.  The more I do this the less I seem to give my advice. 

We mold into so many types of relationships in our lives.  Some people need another person to tell them what to do.  To mother them while they are sick.  Others have no desire to be told what to do.  It always seems to vary per subject too.  I am wondering why we externalize so much?  Why we sometimes rely on other people to help live our lives?  Then in other areas why do we refuse help?  Then why do we feel the need to push our thoughts and help others in their ways?

I am on the verge of meeting so many new people in my life.  This along with snowboarding makes me so excited for what is happening so far this year.  Every person we run into we have several options.  We can learn from that person, push our beliefs,  make that person smile, make that person feel miserable.  I have found that if I go into new encounters with an open heart and the knowledge that we are all growing together on this earth it helps me learn more from that person.  I am here learning and growing just as the person I am engaged with is also learning and growing in their own way.  It is really up to me on how much you want to engage with that person.  If the individual is pushy or a soul sucker I'll find someone else.  I find the best people I get along with are the ones that are also out in this world to learn and grow from other people.

I have officially made it to my destination of Steamboat Springs, CO.  Let the adventure continue.
