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 217 - Max Strom workshop - Day 3
Max Strom guided us through about 1 1/2 hours of slow deep breathing yoga. Afterwards we did 10 minutes of om chanting followed by a negative emotional release chant (pretty much a breath in word form). In the past I have chanted and felt vibrations in my lips and in my forehead. The longer I did it the more intense it seemed to be. Today I felt vibrations in my lips, forehead, stomach, shoulders, and neck. Dharma Mittra told me that you are supposed to feel a cleansing vibration of energy going from the sacrum all the way up and out the head. Again, I became more of a believer on this subject today.
I also noticed that my chest was not feeling much of anything or any vibrations. I have been told over the last 3 months that I have a lot of locks in my heart. I have taken a lot of these words with a grain of salt in the past, but am now starting to see more of the connections. Of course I am holding things in my heart. Of course I have shields around my chest area, and of course this is going to block my energy flow. The main difference is...Today I could feel the blocks.
How do I feel I can fix this and unlock my heart and chest area? I feel as if I already am. Yoga, the chanting today, and the inward journey I am continuing in my life. I am on an adventure to feel love, passion, and celebrate where I am. 2011 destroyed my emotional self, and I put up some temporary barriers. Inside those barriers my heart, love, and trust have grown and evolved into a much more powerful entity from before. I feel these emotions are what eventually will knock down these barriers all together. The more I look to celebrate life and who I am, the more I look to find compassion in all living things, and the more I look to find similarities in people rather then differences. These are areas where my heart will continue to grow and the barriers will fall.
Today is a good day to celebrate!
