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 352 - I am moving in a positive direction


Today I went into my regular Monday night Ashtanga class with Steve Rubin at Full Circle Yoga.  I was really relaxed in class today.  I felt like things just worked for me.  Life is moving in a forward direction.  I feel good.

There is a lot of lessons to learn from yoga.  My lesson lately has been that I am moving in a positive directions.  Through patience, determination, and acceptance I feel as if I am unwrapping layers of myself and becoming someone new.  This new person has made needed changes to become who I always wanted to be.  I also realize the importance of keeping this patience, determination, and acceptance so I continue to evolve into a more healthy individual.  I look forward to learning more form the world around me, and will keep an open mind.

Over the past year I have been worried about self promotion.  I worried about feeding into my ego.  I have spent the last year expressing my honest emotions, feelings, and thoughts.  I have started to accept that I am a person that likes to express myself in a true and honest way.  Let it be through painting, blogging, or just talking to a friend, I feel the need to express who I am.  I am feeling that my self expression, along with my knowledge in online marketing can be used to help out others in need.

I am happy and excited for what I am planning after I am done with Yoga308.  It will take some courage and self promotion, but I believe I will be expressing ideas that may be needed in this world.  I am excited to be able to express my thoughts, but also excited that I have the knowledge that not everyone will share my same thoughts.

The above picture shows the slow transitions I have made over the year.  I did not wake up one day and suddenly I could do these headstands.  These came into my life because I practiced and believed that I was moving towards something.  The good news is this is only after 1 year.  I wonder what the next 5 years of yoga will bring me.

At any point in your life you have the option of believing your life is going in a positive or negative direction.  Looking back at our lives some of our rock bottoms were the start of something better.  Today I really do choose my life is moving in the right direction.  Where do you think you are today?
