Homecoming blogpost

👩🏼‍💻 the story August 9

.

Press conference August 1988 for the album they named after their homestate: New Jersey 📸  Mark Weiss

Welcome to this Daily Bon Jovi blog!
A blog which was recently paused for a week long sabbatical + a weekend off, which would be standard from now on.
And now, after a few days, I’m back already.
So… what happened, right?

Well, last weekend I concluded my new, second career in yoga, “Rock Star Yoga” (or Bon Jovi Yoga) – the one I’ve known for like forever (2019) that it would come one day, that one – 
that this new career appeared to require a blogless week to streamline my production process.
*insert stern looking emoji*

Now this second career in yoga was not going to be tied to the pre-Covid yoga for friends, that I still had before the pandemic. 
I did (and do) count on that to return one day, when I have a spacious living, or house, or access to a common room in my building.
I still count on the opportunity to pick up teaching yoga to friends, which then would also start including Bon Jovi friends of course!, to appear out of thin air.
Whenever the universe thinks the time is right, it will show up.

But Yoga for Friends was not the new yoga career I needed a sabbatical for. No, a newly rockin’ Yoga for Friends was not why I from now on needed to clear my weekends from blogging, in order to regroup and recover and be able to pull it off another week!
No.

As sort of a PS, a bonus, a GIVEAWAY NO-BRAINER RED FLAG?!
If you’re contemplating a new career or a big project, and announce to your dearest of dear you need a week off to pull this off?
Let me then now be the bearer of both great and probably terrifying news when I say that you do not need any sort of time off.
Instead you need to ditch that thing you think is your purpose and your calling, and throw it in the deep end of the Delaware river, to never be seen or heard of again!

Because if it was your purpose?
You’d be DOING it.
You’d be IN IT.
It would take wild horses to drag you away, if it really was your purpose work.

I could go back to my original setup of paragraphs here.
And explain how wonderful yoga on my YouTube channels would have been;
How at home we’d all feel in this Bon Jovi yoga community that we ourselves would create.
But there really is no point to go into details, of something that is not going to happen.

My plan to start two YouTube yoga channels, and thereby pick up my old work as a yoga teacher, and to let these channels be complementary to this #dailybonjoviyoga blog;
It was not the right plan.

Whereas the 30 days of unplanned, manic, terribly time consuming, “no idea how to find an audience for this” blogging extravaganza about Bon Jovi concerts and yoga playlists, and theming days after tours, and assigning playlists from different teachers to each day;
And writing endless stories here on this blog, day after day after day, from Juny 10 to July 10?
Oh that, was the real deal.

Everyday I was absorbed in writing, my whole mind had become one with this blog. My life was tied to it!
And when I went to Guns N’ Roses, I took three days off, but afterward I just continued writing about Guns N’ Roses, and it fit perfectly….
In fact, it improved the Bon Jovi Yoga system I had developed.

So this blogpost is my homecoming.
This is me saying:
Yes, I am a yoga “teacher” but all I teach is my love for yoga, and my love for Bon Jovi, and my love for Guns N’ Roses, and for attending concerts.
But I am, at heart, a writer.
Not a YouTuber.

Writing is my wild horses couldn’t drag me away activity, and I do not need planned days off to recover from it.
Let alone that I would need to clear my calendar for the week, to sit behind my desk and write.
I ll write even when I have a full calendar, and show up late at dates. Or even feel slightly grumpy (which I then coach myself out of) because I had to leave my desk.

If you re still reading this, I think I can share this with you, because it is a great story;
During that month of blogging I had the best sex of my life.
I immediately knew why that had happened: Because I was writing for this blog every day.
And a few weeks ago, a time when I should have felt amazing because I had  finally solved a big problem with my apartment and all the personal effects that had ended up blocking my living room, were finally in their correct place;
I had sex again. Which should have been great because after a year of this complicated issue, I finally had my house in order! My life could start including filming from my living room!
But the sex didn’t even come close to what had happened one month prior…
In fact: It was hard work.

Just like making yoga videos in that wonderful, cleared out and upgraded living room was hard work.

If I can teach you anything about yoga, my type of yoga, the yoga that I think the world needs more of, and that you may be interested in, and that I have no idea how to teach but it’s not through making yoga videos:
Then it is that that yoga?
Should not be hard work.

Yoga should not be something you need to clear your calendar for, but it should be something you can’t NOT do.
You should be drawn to it, like Bon Jovi fans to the newest hAnD90 uploads. And click Play because you’re just dying with curiosity!

Wild horses could not drag you away.

THAT is the feeling you should be looking for.
That, is your homecoming.

So today is August 9!
Let’s dive in: What is suggested as your #dailybonjoviyoga for today?

🧘🏽🤘🏽#dailybonjoviyoga 

There are 2 different options, which in helicopter view are:

option 1.
do yoga on your own, themed day by day

This is the only option where you get a “freestyle” (do yoga on your own) option, which means you can do yoga with Bon Jovi music.
The two other options are guided practices only.
Which would be hard to follow along, if you have Bon Jovi’s 1995 Homecoming Concert blasting through your speakers.

option 2.
pick one of the programs

option I:  themed day by day

Every day of the week, the Rock Star Yoga/ #dailybonjoviyoga is themed differently:

Monday: Find What Feels Good
do yoga with:🥤 Yoga with Adriene channel
or playlist 1: 🍭 Yoga with Adriene – selection
or playlist 2:🌱Yoga with Adriene Yoga for New Beginnings
or do hatha yoga (on your own) with 🚧Slippery When Wet album🚧 or 🏟️Slippery When Wet tour🌎

Tuesday, showtime! New Jersey Syndicate Tour
do yoga with: 🕉️Ashtanga Yoga and  🏹 Rocket Yoga playlist
or freestyle (on your own) with 🇺🇸New Jersey album🫐🟦 or 🏟️New Jersey Syndicate tour🌎

Wednesday:  🌵🏜️🏍️Santa Fe Day 🦅🏜️🌵
choose a yin yoga/ relaxation video from the yoga playlist
or do relaxing yoga (on your own) with 🏜️Blaze of Glory album🏍️
OR (new!) do yoga (on your own) with the live Dry County and Santa Fe playlist!

Thursday, showtime! Keep the Faith/ I ll Sleep When I m Dead Tour
do yoga with: 🌊Shiva Rea playlist
or buy her 1999 double album 2h practice, Yoga Sanctuary
or freestyle (on your own) with 🛐 Keep the Faith album✝️ or the 🏟️KTF tour🌎

Friday: 🍻 An Evening With Bon Jovi🎤
do yoga with: 💃🏽 Tara Stiles playlist
or do hatha yoga (on your own) with a few songs from the Cross Road album or An Evening With Bon Jovi

Saturday: Showtime! Cross Road/ These Days Tour
do yoga with: 🌶️ Meghan Currie Playlist.
or freestyle (on your own) with
🎸These Days album🚑 or the 🏟️ CR/ TD Tour🌎

Sunday: Vintage Yoga
do yoga with: 📺 Playlist Vintage Yoga Videos + tv 
or hatha yoga (on your own) with 1⃣Bon Jovi- Bon Jovi album💘, 🌋Fahrenheit🔥 or concerts 🎛️1984🎴🏮-🦂🦂🦂-1985🌎

Or, choose the fast lane to enlightenment, with Guns N’ Roses Yoga.
Full story here: 
->  Free yourself. And have breakfast with the other guests.
| A Day or a Lifetime, of Guns N’ Roses Yoga

💀🌹🎸  Guns N’Roses Yoga
do yoga with: 🕉️Ashtanga Yoga and  🏹 Rocket Yoga playlist
or freestyle (on your own) with a 💀🌹🎸 Guns N’ Roses album,
or a concert, for example: 💀🌹🎸 Guns N’ Roses – Paris 06.06.1992 
Or my playlist: Guns N’ Roses Groningen 2022 06 23

.

option II: week & month program

Dive in with the above schedule, or pick one of the two programs, which are designed in the same Monday to Sunday rhythm. So for example, every Monday you get a Yoga with Adriene video:

4 Week Program (15-30 minute videos)
🕉 🎬 yoga playlist:
Rock Your Yoga: 4 Week Program {❤️🤍💙 est. July 4th, 2022}

Monthly playlist, with practices from 15-30 minutes.

Week Program (1 hour videos)
🕉 🎬yoga playlist: 7 Day Yoga Schedule | 1 Hour per day
Ongoing 7 day playlist, with practices of one hour.

Individual videos may be replaced when the original drops out or a better alternative is available, but the lists have a permanent status and you can count on them to stay up. 

{ Tuesday August 9 }

Every Tuesday my two programs (28 day and 7 day) suggest an Ashtanga Yoga video.
Ashtanga Yoga is the most Rock Star of all the yogas, because it was practiced by The Grateful Dead, who brought their teacher Larry Schultz with them on tour.
You can also have a look at the Ashtanga/ Rocket Yoga playlist separately:
🕉️Ashtanga Yoga and  🏹 Rocket Yoga playlist
Rocket Yoga is an adaptation to Ashtanga Yoga, founded in the 90s by  Grateful Dead’s ashtanga teacher, Larry Schultz. 

#dailybonjoviyoga
tuesday 9 August 2022


Tuesday, showtime! New Jersey Syndicate Tour
do yoga with: 🕉️Ashtanga Yoga and  🏹 Rocket Yoga playlist
or freestyle (on your own) with 🇺🇸New Jersey album🫐🟦 or 🏟️New Jersey Syndicate tour🌎

My personal practice will be a late afternoon freestyle session, with the New Jersey album (1 hour).
