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 283 - What is healthy

I was this close to throwing in the towel on this blog today.  I am at a boiling point where I feel like this blog is not good for my ego or my yoga.  If I am truly taking a look inside myself, why express it to the whole world to see.  I am telling myself that there is more to learn from this experience.  There is a reason why I am doing this.  There is more to this.

I did a gentle yoga session at home tonight.  It has been awhile since I have taken it easy and sit still and meditate.  It was a much needed check in with me.

I thought where I was one year ago.  Life was coming out of a deep hole last year.  This time last year I wrote out my last check to my already remarried with child x-wife.  This end was my true beginning of my new life. 

One year later, I feel like I am in a really healthy space.  I have been looking to build a better life for myself and continue to look into healthier ways of living.  Not that I am close to this point, but I am wondering where the stopping point is.  Should I just live everyday looking to live a better life?  Is there a resting point? 

What is the definition of healthy?  When does one become healthy?  My definition is someone who is balanced in their mind, body, and soul.  Someone who is not thrown emotionally out of place from the outside world.  Someone who makes an effort to take care of their body's muscles, organs, and bones.  Someone who uses their healthy mind and healthy body to connect with the greater cause.  What is the greater cause?  That is for you to find out.

I feel healthy.

  1. Hi Danny, I really love this blog. I just started reading it about a month ago and I jump around here and there. I just recently started doing lots of yoga (like 3 times a week now) and I googled yoga in Orlando and found you. I'm going through some hard times right now and the only thing that is keeping me sane and healthy is my yoga practice. I guess I can relate to where you were when you started this blog and it is inspiring to see where your practice has taken you in the last year.

    I like reading about your experiences at the different studios and with different instructors too..I love Steve Rubin's classes. I especially like your insightful analysis about what is going through your mind or happening in your life when you practice. Isn't that what it's all about? Mind, body, spirit?

    Anyway, I just wanted to say that you have some good stuff here and if you feel like keeping it up then great...I will keep reading. :)
