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 358 - Work on your life's yoga posture today


I am down to my last week.  Crazy!!!  I did yoga at home today.  It was an hour session with simple postures and stretching.  The hardest thing was there was a thunderstorm rolling in, and my dog is scared of thunderstorms.  Most of the time Orion was sitting right next to my mat.  This yoga session became a lot of petting and comforting stretching.

The picture above show the difference between my side crow 10 months ago and where it is now.  There is a slight difference between the two. You can see my back and shoulders starting to square off.  This is what 10 months gets you.  I do not see a giant change.  This is one thing that I have learned through yoga 308.

Life is not about luck.  Life is about working hard and changing our lives one day at a time.  We can have an end goal that we believe in.  The only way to get to that goal is to make stride towards it.  If we look at the picture above some people might say that I am done with the posture on the left.  Some might say I am done with the posture on the right.  The truth is this posture is never finished.  This posture leads to another posture, which leads to the next posture, which leads to the next posture.  I do not have enough time to get to the "End Goal."

Everyone wants that "Final posture."  We want it right now.  The joy and the happiness in life is striving towards that goal.  Finding others that strive towards this goal with you, and doing what we believe in.  Do not rely on others to bring you towards your happiness and goals, but rather work with them to find your true happiness, love, and internal peace.

Work on your posture today :)
