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 286 - Good Vibes coming my way

Tonight I am writing to you from Madrid.  There is a massive celebration going on outside the hotel right now for the last soccer match in Madrid.  After getting into Spain at 7:00 am.  We all went to the hotel and were able to check in early.  We have two days of sightseeing here before heading down south for the yoga retreat.  None of us slept on the plane so we slept until 3:00 in the afternoon.  Then we went off for some of the local sites and an awesome Flamenco show.  I did somehow manage to do some yoga (really just stretching in some postures), in between all of this.

There has been a weird shift of energy that happened on this trip.  It is an outside source.  All my friends have a really positive vibe, but it seems like the world is trying to knock us down right now.  I finally got frustrated with a lack of sleep and food tonight.  It did not faze me long.  I feel like the energy has shifted again.  That the outside negativity is still there, but not able to phase me and moving on.

The more I travel the more I see how the United States tries to strike worry and fear into us.  I have seen this the last few time when I had to deal with the airlines inside the USA.  I am normally under control, but this one got to me.  Marianne and I were told that we were not able to be ticketed a plane ticket because we did not have a print out of the hotel reservation where we were staying in Spain.  They told us it was a new regulation in Spain not something American Airlines was not in control of.  Not even proof on the Iphone would be accepted.  This of course is an insane idea.  When we arrived in Spain it was by far the easiest customs I have gone through in my life.  The only thing we needed was our passports (nothing else).  This was the beginning of little tasks like this that people were testing me to get here in Spain. 

I feel a giant shift in energy though.  As probably over 10,000 people cheer outside our hotel window I can feel good positive vibes coming into my life.

Enjoy the negative people in life.  They make our positive lives that much better.
