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 362 - Literally, Fall on your face.

 
Some days you literally fall flat on your face.  The only way you progress forward is to try.  I think I have this thought pretty much down.   I am not ashamed of falling on my face as long as I try something.  I am also not ashamed of showing the world that yes I fell on my face.  You are never an idiot for attempting to do something.  There are people that might live for the days that you fail.  I would rather be the person who attempts things rather then the person who sits around and makes fun of people that fail at things.

This morning I went to Orlando Power Yoga and took a hot yoga class with Janelle Pochintesta.  I tried to take it a little easier today and focused a lot on my breath.  I was talking a few days ago about how I have a shallow and short inhale breath.  I was concentrating on making my inhale bigger and longer.  I wanted to make it bigger and longer then my exhale to see what happens.

Someone asked me today what I have learned from this entire experience.  I started to think about all the lessons I have learned.  I told them to read my last 361 blogs.  I feel like I learn (and relearn) so many lessons through yoga.  It was a hard question to sum up.  I realize I need to come up with a good answer to all of this.  Good thing I have a blog :)  I need to go think more about this summary.
