"Now that we are back in action in Monday Morning Yoga, I'm again reminded of something I love to see in a group practice: the generative energy of asana!
Since asana simply means posture, you are actually in an asana right now as you sit (or stand) and read these words. And how is your seated posture? Do you succumb to gravity and slouch, or is there a lift within you that, at first, takes effort, and over time gets easier?
When we forget that we can be our own engines of energy, we tend to shrink down and collapse a bit. Our breathing gets shallower as our diaphragm has less space to move and pull oxygen into our lungs. We get tired, even sad. Then core muscles grow weaker and aches and pains ensue.
But you are generative!"

Every Monday, at the end of the day, I settle into my favorite comfy chair in the front room next to Lila, our sweet Red Heeler dog, and I write my blog. Ideas of what I want to say to you are always bouncing around in my head. My phone is full of little voice memos to myself and dictated notes of things I want to share. I always want these weekly love notes to be of value to you, whether that's to make you think, help you remember, inspire you, give you a treat, or just plain inform you of what's going on.
Today the theme of adventure is on my mind as I'm warm inside while it's literally freezing outside. To have an enjoyable outdoor adventure would require getting out of town. So I'm dreaming about that. Also, snuggling up inside is a perfect time for yummy meditation, like an inner adventure. So I'm dreaming about that, too. And sometimes we like to go on adventures that take us deeper into self knowing and the journey is simply the path of life. I'm dreaming of that as well...

CHAKRA Savvy: Reset Your Life Game Plan
Your ultimate guide to putting the pieces of your life together the way you want them to be.
Next cohort starts January 15!
Chakras are part of your subtle body system; your energetic self. You can't see them, but they spin like gears and encounter the world around you and create the world within you. This can be hard to wrap the mind around. I get it. Truth be told, I don't think we have to understand or believe all that to make the chakras, and the study of them, valuable, applicable, and pragmatic.
In this week's blog post, read about

My theme right now is so when I heard about this delightful book I picked it up right away!
Delight is a 🌈 Chakra Two practice of releasing the “guilt” from guilty pleasures and being present to all things delightful. And as Ross Gay did for his book, it’s a daily practice. And it changes your perception (🌈 Chakra Six)
Have you read this yet? 📖
As we head into 2024, remember that changing years is a great time for changing gears.
⚙️ Do you want to shift up, shift down, or hang out in neutral? ⚙️
👆An "upshift" refers to the act of changing to a higher gear, typically done to increase speed or efficiency.
👆An "upshift" in life means positive change in career, personal development, or overall well-being. It's a move towards higher levels of performance, success, or satisfaction.
👀 Let's see how an upshift in your awareness can bring about a fantastic and intentional journey in 2024!

May you cherish the quiet times, indulge in the darkness, and remember that the light always returns.
"I had the pleasure of watching the whirling dervishes in Istanbul. It is a truly mesmerizing experience. They have an incredible calm during the outer whirling of the world and their robes, and never seem to get dizzy or lose their balance. And now I also see it’s because of that calm, fixed center.
Yoga is all about moving towards your calm center. The place of steadiness and ease within and throughout you. The heart has this quality. It is Anahata–unstruck–and it is the place we feel and experience joy."

I’ve been following the recent press about Oprah’s new book, “Build the Life You Want: The Art and Sciences of Getting Happier.” She co-wrote it with Harvard professor Arthur C. Brooks, who teaches a class all about happiness, and has written other books on the topic as well.
Whenever I hear about a new research on happiness my ears and interest definitely perk up. After all, happiness is a basic human desire I think we all have, so the quest for it captures my attention every time. Yoga has a long history of helping people make their lives happier through the balance and awareness of mind, body, and spirit, so it's kinda my jam.
This quest for happiness has been going on for thousands of years. So much so, the Yoga Sutras comment on it and advise how to get closer to it. We may be living in a time of great loneliness and emotional challenges, but there are many ways to foster happiness.
So as we head into the season of wishing everyone “Happy Holidays,” I thought I’d share a little of what I’ve gleaned lately from this new spin on an ancient desire to be happy.

“How to Have Happier Holidays”

This interview with Rob Bell covers so many things that are dear to my heart and meaningful in the work of living a life of self study. We may be talking about his new book, but we’re really talking about much more.

👀 Watch on my YouTube channel, Jess G Yoga at https://youtu.be/35E2Yz2BI-Y?si=-J-Yfr9hCDFRz-Eh
Rob Bell is someone I have deeply admired for many years now. A friend clued me into his podcast, the Rob Cast, in circa 2015, and I’ve listened ever since. I’ve seen him live here in Austin twice, and I always appreciate his candid style, self reflections, teachings, and genuine laugh at all things “life.”
He has evolved from a megachurch pastor to a world renowned heretic (which I believe is a good thing), questioning some of the ways today’s Christian religion has been teaching things that actually go against Spirit and Scripture, and proposing that the world, that God, is much more about love than damnation, and heaven and hell can be found right here on earth. His book, Love Wins, catapulted him into the greater public eye in 2011 when he was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people. He has been interviewed by Oprah, quoted by Brene Brown, and he’s on my podcast to talk about his new book, “Where’d You Park Your Spaceship?”
So yeah, I'm excited!
