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 168 - Exhausting Fun

 I love the days when I am exhausted from doing way too much in a day.  I woke up early this morning to eat breakfast with my friends.  I went out for another day snowboarding on the mountain with Dave.  We followed that with a yoga session with Jenny Gabriel at the Old Town Hot Springs Rec Center.  I then followed yoga with a nice dip in the hot springs.  Yoga, after a good day of snowboarding was perfect.  The class was a good Hatha type class that allowed me to stretch some muscles that were really used today on the snowboard.  It really was like a nice self massage today.

I have been noticing while in downward dog that my two toes on my right foot like to twitch.  I find that I sometimes stare at the these two toes and wonder why they are moving.   Then I start laughing at myself because I am finding this interest in my two toes.   I think life can be so much enjoyable when you start to notice theses smaller things in life.  There were a lot of little things that seemed to stick out today.  Whether it be the clear skies along with the blue skies, the steam rising off the hot springs water, or the magpie all puffed up trying to stay warm from the cold.  Life was really good today.

I am looking forward to this week.  It do finally feel situated and over my cold this week.  There is a lot of yoga to choose from this week and I really look forward to all the new challenges ahead.  As I said earlier I am dead tired so I will keep this short and go get some rest.  Good night.
