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 320 - Loosing my balance

Today I went to Full Circle for a hot flow class with Kristen Schneider.  It was a great class.  We started off practicing handstands.  I liked the class because it took me to my edge.  I was really tired by the time we were all done.

Today was strange.  In class I had no balance.  Any balance poses I tried to get into I was falling out of it pretty quick.  I wrote it off as an off day, but I thought about why I might be off today.  I do feel much more grounded today.  I feel like today was a dramatic shift in my balance.  I am back eating my regular diet of non raw food.  I cleaned my house today.  I focused on focusing on me.  I feel like I have been way focused in my job, friends, and family.  Trying to make it all balance, and putting some of my thoughts and projects on my back burner.

I feel very focused today, doing what I want to do.  Maybe this great shift in focus actually has made me off balance. 

I am really excited to be winding the yoga308 project up.  I still love yoga, but honestly I feel like a lot of these days I am stretching for things to blog about.  I really want to spend my time painting lately, but have not had the time.  I am thinking when yoga308 comes to an end I will shift my time back over to painting again.  I will still blog when I feel like it, but I do not feel it necessary to do this every day.

The only reason I feel like I should continue is because my readers may be sad to see me go.   I am keeping to my original mission throughout all of this. Blogging for myself and keeping track of my changing emotions and thoughts.  I feel like there is so much more to be doing.  This experience has been great, but my path is to use what I have learned and continue on to my next adventure.
