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 364 - Do not justify an unhelathy life to keep an unhelahty life.

So weird to think there is only one more day left.  Saturday is my day off.  It is traditionally taken off by Ashtanga practitioners.  Ashtanga is still what I would call my favorite practice, but I have only been practicing it once a week.  When I first started yoga308 I did Ashtanga 3 times a week.  Part of this experience I wanted to try new things.  If I look at my weekly routine now there is a great mix in it.  Maybe this is just my shift in personalty.  I enjoy a wide range of things in my life.

I enjoy the meditation and rhythm I get into in my Ashtanga classes at Full Circle.  I enjoy the feeling of a giant community and the energy in the hot classes at Orlando Power yoga.  I enjoy the intense relaxed and zen feeling after a Kristen Schneider yin yoga class.  I also enjoy some personal me time with my home practice.  I feel very balanced with my yoga practice.  I also am looking forward to exploring new studios and new instructors in my future.  There is so much to learn.

I really do believe that people justify their unhealthy life to continue to live an unhealthy life. Life is so much about balance.  Your life may be in the dumps, the lowest point of your life, nothing but negative things happening, no hope, no exercising, you don't have a good job, lonely, not eating healthy, life might be in the complete crap hole.  All of these are what keep you on the negative side of life.  It is up to you to decide to make the shift.  All you have to do is start and be honest.  Choose one avenue, and go for it.  Look into how you can improve this avenue.  Eat healthy, start exercising, find a new job, or find something new.  This minor shift will be the start to your happiness.  It really is that simple.  Find that one happy thing to focus on.  Keep that focus and discipline, and more healthy and happy things will come to you.
