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 270 - Diving back into yoga

Marianne and I woke up this morning for the sunrise.  It was still raining, but we went on the beach anyways.  Not everything in life goes as planned, but there is a positive beauty in every situation.   The rain clouds that were rolling in from the horizon and the giant waves gave me a reminder on how cool life can be.  The dogs of course had a great time on the beach.

I was glad I took a hookey day yesterday from yoga.  I am very determined with my practice and want to improve, but I also think it is very healthy to just drop my yoga routine every once in awhile and allow life to happen. 

Sometimes I feel like I dive so deeply into my heart, that when I jump up for air I need a moment to catch my breath before diving in again.  This is what I felt was happening yesterday.  I love the amount of time and practice I have put in.  I also love what I have learned from diving deep into my soul.

We got back to Orlando and took a Flow class with Christine Northcotte at Full Circle Yoga.  It was a great class to jump back in.   Full Circle Yoga and Christine was my first studio I went to in Orlando.  I had not taken her class for a long while, so it was great to go back to my Orlando roots.

I am very grateful for so many things.  I am grateful for yoga and the many lessons it has taught me.   I grateful for the the challenges we are given to balance in our life.  I am grateful for the people who have taught me lessons through both positive and negative experiences.  I am grateful for living life the best way I know how.  I am grateful for the many experiences and opportunities in front of me.  I am grateful for all of my family, friends, and of course my dog.  I am grateful for being able to sit and look inside to find out what it is I am grateful for.

What are you grateful for today?
