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 205 - 24 hours of driving

15 more hours in the truck has gotten me all the way to Mississippi.  My pup is missing running on the mountain and refusing to get back in the truck when we take breaks.  9 more hours will get us back into Orlando.  My back and neck are really tense.  I loosened my muscles up through yoga again in the hotel room.  I am looking forward to getting back into a yoga studio.

I feel like riding in my truck has given me a lot of time to think.  It is close to a meditation practice to me.  I have noticed that my over thinking has calmed down quite a bit since I drove out to Colorado in January.  I owe this calming to my yoga practice. 

I learned a lot about myself on this trip.  Travel can give a great perspective in my life, but it really makes me appretiate the little things.  I was excited to see green grass again today.  After snow and brown dust, sand, and rock, I forgot about the lush green in Florida.  I am excited to get back to my daily routines, eating habits, yoga practice, and being with friends and family.  I have more travel ahead, but I am excited to be at home.

One thing I feel after this trip, is you grow from yoga on the mat.  The mat does not have to travel across the U.S. or world.  Self growth is when you start to be still.  This blog is going to be short again, I really need sleep.
