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 340 - Greetings from high above Alaska


I am currently writing from a plane leaving from Seattle to Anchorage, Alaska.  We are on our way to go hang out with some bears in Homer, Alaska for a few days.

I woke up earlier this morning, rolled out of bed, and immediately did yoga in the hotel room.  It was a slow moving, gentle, and nice way to wake up.  I have been concentrating on being gentle with my body over the last few days.

The last three days in Seattle has put a spark back into me.  I am excited about so many avenues in life.  It has put my life in perspective.  It has made me really grateful for who I am, the people in my life, and everything that has been presented to me.  I have been working in online marketing for 12 years now.  I have a lot of knowledge and a lot to give to the online world.

There is a lot of people who voice there opinion in this world.  Over the last year I have been trying to figure out a way to voice my opinion without growing my ego.  It is the one thing that I have struggled throughout this whole adventure in yoga308.   Since day one I did not want to sound as if I was in this to make me sound better then others.

Over the last year I have been playing with the act of giving.  I have kept this to myself, but am realizing that I can help out others now through online marketing. The reason I kept it to myself is I wanted to make sure that I was doing this to give to others rather then trying to build my ego.

I am realizing a great potential where I might be able to help others in the future.  I also came to a conclusion that a lot of this ego thought process is more of a fear for me to do something good in this world.  I now know how crazy it sounds to fear spreading a message of giving to others.

I am formulating a good plan on how to express my idea through giving.  I would like to do this right. Along with this plan I have formulated about 3 other marketing plans.  I do have a fear of taking on too much (as I often do), but at the moment I am very excited.

I am very happy that I have been doing yoga308.  I am still a firm believer in listening to my heart.  I do not always know what or why I am doing something, but I definitely see how going through the yoga308 process has lead to other discoveries both for myself and who I am.
