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 280 - Gratitude to the Start

This morning I went to a studio that was advertising Hot Ashtanga.  I am getting pretty picky on my yoga practice, and am loving the Ashtanga primary series.  I went into the class expecting to go through the primary series.  Unfortunately, it did not follow the series at all.  I was really looking forward to the primary series so I guess I was disappointed.  The class would have been good and fun any other day, but I really do not like when a class is called Ashtanga and then does not follow it. :(

The older I get the more I feel that everything happens for a reason.  I like to analyze things that happen in my life with the thought that both the good and the bad happen for a reason.  That we are responsible to find the balance to keep us on our path.  Some people disagree with this thought prossess, but what I do know is there was a start to my path.

I cannot prove my way of life, nor can I prove my beliefs in any religion.  What I do know is if everything happens for a reason there is a proven beginning.  That is what I am grateful for today.  My path started almost 38 years ago, and on this mothers day I have to show my deepest gratitude to my mom.  She was my beginning and also such a giant part of making me who I am today. 

So today I am grateful for my mother.  Thank you for everything mom :)
