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 196 - Just chill

Still chilling out on my body.  Tonight I did some more home yoga.  I still feel like there is a reason why my back still feels uncomfortable, and I still feel like the world around me is telling me to try to sit still.  So tonight I tried my best to do that.  I was probably in a seated meditation for 30 minutes during my practice tonight.  My mind was thinking maybe I should try a headstand or an Ashtanga series posture (I have not taken an Ashtanga class since January 3rd), but I was fighting it stressing that it may be more benefitial to sit still.  I did some basic yin stretches and went into shoulder stand and plow.  I felt very zen like after my practice

This weekend I caught up with some close friends.  I spent a lot of time philosophizing about life.  I love talking about different thoughts, beliefs, and ideas.  I love getting different insights, but I also feel like I have had a lot to say lately.  There are a lot of thoughts that go through my brain.  I have found that I can drive myself crazy thinking about everything.  Being open and free to talk about life helps me to formulate my ideas.  So does blogging.  This weekend was much more of a trying to figure out my life weekend then a letting loose and having fun weekend.  I think it important to keep this a balance in my life.

I am still feeling like I am not having as much on my mind as I normally do while blogging.  I feel like I did a few days ago.  That I have been talking and writing about the same thing over and over again.  It reminds me when I was in middle school and we had to write everyday in our journal.  If I did not have to say much I would write "I do not have anything good to say today."   There is a part of me that just wants to write that and be done with today's blog.  Maybe it is the fact that I feel like I am less disciplined because I have not gone to a physical posture class in a week.  I kind of feel like I should take a break on the blog.  I have blogged for 196 straight day.  This is the first true day where I feel like I am just going through the emotions and putting whatever on the blog.

I think it is time for me to go and sit still some more. Hopefully tomorrow I will have more on my mind.  Until then, keep sending me emails or comment.
