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 289 - Day 2 - Molino Del Rey

After a great sleep, we woke up to a very cold morning here in Molino Del Rey.  We were all thinking we were going to lay out by the pool and soak in some sun, but it is actually pretty chilly here.  We started our yoga at 8:00.  Missy White is leading this retreat and it was a great flow that made us all warm again.

We went hiking around the area.  It was a nice walk through the country side.  We had a dog companion who showed us the road to waterfalls and a really cool cave.  It was fun just running around and seeing the orange orchards, gardens, flowers, herbs, and houses.

During class Missy asked us to visualize a white piece of paper.  She asked us to write something on this piece of paper and make this our intention for the week.  My piece of paper was blank which I thought was a perfect intention.  Often my life is filled with trying to change things, tryting to make things better, or improve upon my faults.  I have been working on just being.  This would fall hand in hand with no intentions or a blank piece of paper.  I kind of like thinking of everything as a blank slate.  We can live every moment as if the past never happened.  We can live without fear or worry towards the future.  Every moment is exactly where you are supposed to be.

We did a second class at 4:45.  This was more of a workshop class.  We made a wish list on things we wanted to work on.  Mine was handstand.  I felt like Missy gives me a good direction on where to take my yoga practice.  These workshop classes are going to be very beneficial. 

I feel like I am in a very good place right now.  As if I was supposed to be here for some unknown reason.  I like that feeling.
