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 175 - Cloudy Visions

I am back in Steamboat Springs, CO.  The whole town is hoping to get the snow storm that is supposed to hit here over the next few days.  Keep your fingers crossed.  Before leaving Denver I was able to take a morning class with Kathleen Swinbourne at Lohi Athletic Club.  I was feeling pretty tired on a physical level, but the class made me smile, and I loved the inversions we did in the class.

I was thinking on the drive here on how I am a bit cloudy and unclear about my life and what it is I am wanting to do in the future.  The thing is, I am really excited for this cloudy vision, because it shows that I am human.  I do not have all the answers on to where I am going or what will happened to me.  However, I do feel like I am exactly where I need to be.  I feel a bit strange and weird, but I am on the right path to where I need to go.  I really feel like my past has put me here in this moment, and I feel like everything is unfolding and starting to have purpose.  I just need to continue to keep my eyes and ears open and continue to go out into the world with an open heart.  When I have done this and go out my front door with a positive outlook, life seems to present itself to me, opportunities begin to present themselves, and life becomes an adventure.  It is when I close off my connection, I start to feel like I deserve the world to provide for me, or stop listening to the world, this is when I feel like I fall off my true path.  I am feeling like 2013 has been piecing together the things that I truly do want, and I am doing and moving forward with these things.

Being in yoga you run into a lot of people who's ego come out on center stage.  It is as if they feel that yoga has made them an enlightened being, but there actions tell us something else.  I know that I am not some god like super human who has found enlightenment, and there is a big piece of me that hopes I never get there.  I am loving the journey of all this.  It really is the best part.  I always want something to learn and bring into my soul.  I love when there is a big group in a yoga studio and we all seem to connect with each other.  I feel like the best way we do this is by exposing our faults and the fact that we all have the opportunity to grow from these faults.  This opportunity is my favorite part of yoga.  We are all growing together in our own individual way.  It really is a cool feeling.

I want to stay grounded throughout my yoga experience.  I want to be able to relate with the rest of the world while continuing to take this journey.  I want to be able to always have faults and accept my faults as well as accepting the faults of others around me.  I want to have the knowledge that we are all learning and growing in our life.  We all have the opportunity to find inner peace, love, and compassion.  We all have different paths to find it.  It makes me feel good though thinking that we are all on this journey though leading towards this common goal of love, peace, and compassion for all living things.
