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 226 - Yogi Squat
Above is the basic yoga squat. Your heels are meant to touch the ground. Mine are pretty far from the ground. I hate this posture because I am not good at it. This is a posture I often do not do. I ignore it. I would rather do things that I am good at.
One of my instructors has given me a way to work on getting my heels down. I have my mat rolled up behind me in the picture. I am supposed to squat down on the mat to slowly allow my heels down to the mat. He was saying I could get my heels down if I did it every day for 6 - 8 weeks. Today I decided to take on this challenge. I will do this posture everyday, and let you know what happens.
I do not want to ignore my faults. I do want to work on improving my faults. Do not ignore the little things. These are the core of yourself. I will get my heels on the floor.
