Welcome to this renewed and rebooted daily Bon Jovi blog!
Also the complementary blog for #dailybonjoviyoga on YouTube. A new YouTube series which…. is requiring some extra attention, to say the least!
This week’s filming for both that YouTube, as well as its Dutch equivalent, has resulted in many missed days here on the blog, many late nights, many yoga videos thrown away.
But it has also resulted in an always spotless house, so that I can film, and (the result we were waiting for) three videos posted!
Two English and one Dutch.
Three, when my total is supposed to be six.
So what I have decided on, is:
I will take weekends off from blogging.
Take a one week sabbatical from this blog.
This will allow me to setup and streamline a solid production routine for my English and Dutch YouTube channels.
Last week’s “Just do it”-dive in approach has taught me many lessons, about
best , the only time to film which is daytime;
About the camera angle, the format or weekly formula.
It taught me that the maximum temperature for filming is 25℃ (77℉)
So in these summer months I will need to plan filming around weather forecasts.
This first week of filming also taught me you cannot catch up on Friday, when you’re three videos behind on your schedule, if you have gone out on Thursday.
That was also, a good lesson to remember.
So all in all, it was a learning week with 50% output I hoped for on the channels, a 50% decline here on this blog, and flatlining on all creative endeavors.
Teaching yoga and making videos, both come far less natural to me than writing. In fact they even cost me more effort than deciphering Bon Jovi’s 1984 tour of Japan, which already cost me two days of tweeting about it incorrectly, before I had finally cracked it!
The very popular 25 minute long Japan 1984 recording that you have probably seen a gazzilion times?
That is taken from the final Super Rock show, on 12th of August, in Tokyo.
Whereas the 45 minute audio-only upload, is the very first of this Japanese tour, on August 4, in Nogaya.
4 August 1984, Nagoya
🎬📽️ Bon Jovi Live Japan 1984
12 August 1984, Tokyo
🎤🎧🎛️ Bon Jovi in Nagoya – Super Rock ’84 In Japan – 1984
are the soundtracks for today
The shows were added together, to the playlist
“Bon Jovi concerts on this day”
at 4 August.
And next week’s yoga videos will also be inspired by on-this-day concerts.
Note to my🌎 YouTube subscribers!
I do intend to pick up filming for my Life lessons in Bon Jovi songs as well.
This was my series on YouTube before I started filming yoga, so I plan on running them both.
And have not become a yoga-only channel.
If you’re not interested in joining me for yoga, then I hope you like the first minutes of every yoga video.
Where I talk about a Bon Jovi concert that was held on that day.
🧘🏼♀️🤘🏽Back to the mat
I will also be using the upcoming “Japan-tour-length” sabbatical to get back to my mat for my own personal practice.
Originally the making of the videos was supposed to be a daily thing.
And to replace my personal practice.
But as I changed the filming of yoga videos from daily to 3 a week for every channel, I will be picking up my own yoga.
And follow the 7-day schedule I designed about 7 weeks ago.
If you want to follow along, here is it:

—🤘🏾🧘🏾 🎶🎸 that was your practice 🤘🏾🧘🏾 🎶🎸—
So here I am.
11.15 PM after my first week of filming (and failing), and feeling a bit blue.
If you ve read all the way down to the bottom here, I can confide in you that part of me is still unsure if I m really meant to be teaching yoga, when I AM obviously a writer.
If I should not just call it a day, and leave being a proper yoga teacher on YouTube to the Yoga with Adrienes and Boho Beautiful’s of this world.
Who seem like they are unbothered by their desk, their keyboard, their purpose work calling them.
In fact, they seem as if their yoga on camera IS their purpose work.
When I can assure you:
Mine is not.
My purpose – the work I am here for and that need to do so I can die peacefully one day, without regrets – is not teaching yoga.
But then I come back to something I think I mentioned in an earlier blog, or in the video I made on a Friday one week ago;
Your purpose, in all probability, is not yoga either..
But you are aware you have one. You, and for many reasons I think this is Bon Jovi related, YOU know you have a purpose.
You know you didn’t come here to f* around, and you are as hellbent to live into what you were born for, as Bon Jovi 1984 from 4 to 12 August in Japan.
So this blog, the YouTube channels, and even my own time on the yoga mat, are really not about yoga at all.
Yoga is just a vessel, a means to an end.
Yoga is something we can do to connect and communicate (yes), but mostly, yoga is a way to remember who we are.
And what we came here to do.
You living into your purpose;
That is the yoga I can teach you.
