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 342 - Day 2 of Bears filled with gratitude

I am so grateful today for so much in my life.  What a great opportunity to be able to spend another day with these magnificent brown bears.  The bear above was probably close to 500 lbs.  I was about 15 feet away from the bear.  These are the moments I wonder, "How did I get here."

I've known my business partner since 3rd grade, and traveling on this trip has been outstanding for us on both a personal and business side of things.  I am grateful for his friendship and the work we put in to grow our business.  I am grateful for all of the employees that work with Patrick and I to help grow our company.  I am grateful for my family for always being supportive what I do.  I am grateful for my friends who help keep my life balanced and in perspective.  I am grateful for my dog who is back home with Marianne.  I am grateful for her watching my dog, and supporting who I am.  It feels good to be filled with so much gratitude.

I looked for a  yoga studio in Homer.  I ended up practicing in the hotel room again.  I feel really good about my practice.  I feel much stronger and a bit relaxed on the stretches.  I am trying to give my body a break.  There is a lot of this vacation where my body has been  asking to get back into a more demanding yoga.  I have continued to just do gentle stretches, and now the body seems to be screaming for attention.  I will be looking forward to getting back to the gym, but my mind needs to tell my body to stop harassing it. 

Right now my body is exhausted from waking up at 4 am the last two mornings.  Plus the sun never sits here.  So I am off to bed with the sun.
