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 264 - Need Yin Yoga in Orlando

Today I went to Yin Yoga class with Steve Rubin at Full Circle Yoga.  My body is way run down.  I have been working on these muscles that I learned to engage in Thailand.  I probably have been overdoing it so this Yin yoga class was perfect for me.

When I returned from Thailand there have been several people tell me that I look lighter, brighter, or I lost weight.  I actually feel that way.  I feel very light, even, and balanced.

I realize how important balance is in my life.  The bad parts of life make the good parts so much better.  The physical side of my yoga practice battles the mental side.  Work balances out my fun.

I am finding so much more gratitude in life.  I somehow made a switch in my life, where I started to fill my heart more with gratitude and giving.  The more I fill my heart with these positive aspects the less room I have for fear, worry, or hatred.  I really think it might be that easy.  There are only so many hours in the day to focus on things.  You should face your negative aspects in life, but when you do replace them with gratitude and giving.

I still am getting really sleepy at night.  This is another night where I feel overwhelmed with sleepiness.
