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 287 - Do not prejudge the uplifiting of this positive feeling.

It is day 2 here in Madrid.  We slept hard and all woke up at noon.  Really kind of crazy on the jet lag, but all 6 of us slept in with no complaints.  I am really enjoying my time here in Madrid.  It really is a beautiful and unique city.  I talked yesterday how there was a weird bad energy following me yesterday.  I also said it lifted and has gone on.  It was a great day filled with a lot more friendly people.  The sun was peaking in and out, and it made for a great stroll around the city.  We walked to several plaza's the giant Cathedral de Santa Maria. The street had such an old history to it.  It radiated with so many stories. 

If I was to have left Madrid yesterday I would have had a feeling that the people were truly negative, but this is a given situation where you always need to give situations a second chance.  Never go off a first impression.  If I was to judge everything off of today, I would have said that everyone is so friendly here, happy, and full of life.  How many times do we do this in our lives?  How many times do we prejudge someone or something without giving them a single chance let alone a second chance.

We did get back to the hotel at 8 where a mob of people were outside the hotel again (it was now twice as large as last night).  They were celebrating the win of a soccer match.  I have not seen or felt this giant swarm of energy ever in my life.  It was really impressive.  I wondered about how I thought yesterday's crowd brought about a shift from negative to positive energy.  I wondered if the crowd now double in size meant an even  larger uplifting of positiveness.  I am always looking for signs.  Was this one?

Later tonight I managed to squeeze in a quick yoga session.  I feel like relaxing my muscles and mind, and felt like this mini session is getting me prepared for my yoga retreat.

Tomorrow we leave to Malaga which is on the south side of Spain.
