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 327 - Regaining my balance and loving who I am

I went to Full Circle Yoga for a Hot Flow Class with Kristen Schneider.   The class was good as always, and I was able to keep my balance.  Last week I was loosing my balance in every posture.  This week it's back.  I feel really good today.

Some times the only way to move forward is to lose your balance.  When we fall down we get a chance to regroup and decide if we want to try the posture again.  We can give up and say we are not good at it, or we can practice until we get our balance back.  Life is really pretty cool in that way.

Today I got down to the root of who I am.  Looking at who I am makes me really happy.  I am not trying to build my ego, but I like the path that I am on.  I am on a a continuous growth and I have good moral values.  It is hard to look out at this world and see some of the people in it.  I am not saying I am better then others, but I will never understand a lot in this world.  Why people devalue other people and animals.  Why some people always put money and themselves above others,  Why people harm themselves in order to get through life.  Why people are stuck on external happiness and not looking into why they are not happy inside.  Then there are some things I will never understand like murder or rape.

It is really a scary place out there.  We all believe that our values are the correct way to look at life.  When we loose our balance we are able to stop and check our true morals and values.  We are able to check inside and see who we truly are.  We stop and regain our focus.  Then we can try to balance it all out again.  The scary place begins to look like a wonderful place when you regain this balance.  You begin to understand that the negative aspects in life are just a check to see if you can maintain your balance and keep your focus on who you are and want to be.  Life begins to become beutiful. 

When you fall out of balance it is as simple as looking inside and finding it again.
