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 343 - Again grateful for my life

This morning I woke up in Homer, Alaska and did yoga straight out of bed again.  The gentle stretching and breathing helped to wake me up and get my body moving.  I kind of wish I would wake up every morning like this.  Before rushing out of bed and starting my day I could just start off checking in and seeing what stretches feel good and checking out how I feel overall.

I am now in Anchorage Alaska.  The bear adventure has come to an end.  It was a great time.  I have been blessed in so many ways in my life, and I am still feeling very grateful for all of the moments I have experienced.   These bears are one of the many animals I have been able to photograph in the wild.  It is one of my favorite things in this world.  I have photographed monkeys, elephants, lemurs, elk, gorillas, bears, and a lot more.  I once sat under a tree for 3 hours waiting for a sloth to wake up and move.  Seeing these animals up close and in nature give me a strong feeling of connection.  It reminds me how we are all really the same at certain levels in life.  Life can all really be that simple if we can find a way.

It is really late and the sun is still up.  I have been running around enjoying Alaska.  I have let my guard down and enjoyed some great food (no meat or chicken :) and 2 mochas)  I really am enjoying myself.
