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 259 - Need more Ashtanga
I really do appreciate the Ashtanga series. However, it is nice to get away from the seriousness of the Ashtanga classes and go to a Power class to just have a good time. I feel like I am going on a little mini vacation from Ashtanga when I go to these practices.
I realize that I need more and more of the Ashtanga series if I am going to improve my practice. This is where I learn and grow the most. I improve on a multiple levels. Not only is my body getting one of the best workouts, I am also looking deeper inside myself. I am finding more of connection between body, mind, and soul. It is my favorite type of yoga.
I do not think I am ready to go all in on one type of practice. Ideally, I should concentrate on one lineage of yoga. I would probably see the best improvement with my practice if I was to do Ashtanga 6 times a week. Right now I like to get out of my routine and go to other yoga types to take a break from the Ashtanga routine. I am going to look into putting at least 4 days a week of Ashtanga practice into my life. Eventually I want to try to do an entire month of Ashatanga practice.
Although I am tired, I feel very settled and am not worried about much of anything. Life feels good this weekend.
