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 224 - Inhale and Exhale
I have noticed last weekend during the Max Strom workshop that I had extremely deep breath. It was a cleansing feeling over the weekend. I feel so much came out of me. I felt like I was getting rid of emotions.
This week my life was over whelming with scattered emotions. My head was restless and I noticed my breath was shallow and not constant. I do not think that I could get the deep breath method that I had in the workshop simply because my emotions were in control.
I began to witness the connection between emotions and breath. It was almost as if the emotions filled my lungs rather then air. When we are in a stable state and breathing "normal" we are probably in control of our emotions. Deep breaths are cleaning out the emotions and shallow breaths are being controlled by our emotions.
If we can increase our lung capacity and allow deeper breaths on a more regular basis I believe that we would become more in tune with our emotions and a much calmer human being. I am sure there is a lot of study on this subject. I felt it and believe it.
