I tend to revel in anger. Especially when it’s justifiable. My anger manifests as a fiery weapon & I gleefully burn away everything in my path. But maybe yoga is supposed to help manage my weapons before I accidentally hurt myself. Digging into Audre Lorde’s “Sister Outsider” for @spirithouse_inc’s Harm Free Book Zone has got me ready to amp on everyone in my life who refuses to admit that they’re complicit in upholding white supremacy. Although, if I’m being completely honest, I’m mostly just angry at myself. Angry that I am complicit in white supremacy. Angry that I officially spent my entire adolescence and young adulthood trying to buy into a system that will never let me in. Angry because, much as I loathe it, I CONTINUE to actively buy into this shit every day. And I think it would be quite easy to never do any analysis of this emotional circuit. But yoga is a hand at the nape of my neck and it’s literally pushing my face into the mirror of truth. And I’m really fucking grateful for that. Because while I’m actually quite happy with my anger (frankly, it arouses me), if I keep lighting everything on fire a bitch will be burned alive. And why you use a perfectly good blaze to burn down your own ship, Jessamyn. #yoga Photo by @justincookphoto Creative Direction by @lisaismyname0

I watched today’s @google doodle & it moved me to a place where I’m STILL ugly face crying as I write. Writing because I don’t want to forget this moment though, tbh, it doesn’t really matter if I remember bc my soul will never forget. But that doodle keeps making me think about something that’s been nagging at the edge of my mind for awhile now. Those last lines- “bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hopes of the slave”- they remind me of the ancestral pride that I’ve been conditioned to fear as a descendent of slaves. Samantha and I were talking about this the other day- it’s like we’ve been conditioned to feel as though we should only experience our heritage from a sense of pity or sadness. But that’s the assimilation shining through- the unmistakable glint of the white man’s gaze. But why fall prey to the assimilation when the Ancestral Resilience is so Vast? When the Courage is so...Sonorous? These are our ancestors- our marrow is chock full of their Strength, Power, and Prosperity. What does it mean to be the fruit of Subjugation and Degradation- and what mighty fine fruit! The great Doctor speaks to this truth in her work because she plowed the depths of her own identity. And, obviously, I’ve read “Still I Rise” about 363793846 times before today but for some reason listening to it in a FUCKING GOOGLE DOODLE touched my spirit immeasurably. I keep thinking about the day I met Dr. Angelou. I (literally) stumbled into the backyard of the art gallery next to the Winston Salem @Bahá’í Center circa 1995. And there she was- it caused quite the kerfuffle in our little community. My mom came out and there were lots of pictures and everyone was excited but I was ~eight and probably just wanted to go home and watch Rugrats. Some days you just wanna go watch Rugrats and other days you’re crying at 10:30 in the morning on a Wednesday and it’s all because of the same person. It also feels relevant that today is the 1st anniversary of #EveryBodyYoga’s release & Dr. King’s murder. Welcome to my feelings, they are everywhere. Why stop crying, Jessamyn. Obviously you need it. #stillirise #yoga Photo by @adipositivity
I’ve been obsessed with @weleda_usa for ages. Legit, my first encounter with @weleda_usa Skin Food was love at first sight and that cute green tube has been a mainstay of my desk, purse, and glove compartment ever since. I’ve started referring to their Arnica muscle massage oil as my “special sauce.” Pro-tip? After an intense yoga practice, get in touch with your #InnerNature. Run a bath with Weleda’s Arnica Muscle Soak and follow it up by rubbing your muscles and joints with their Muscle Massage Oil. Real Talk- this has been my standard #selfcaresunday routine for months now and it is BEYOND decadent. I try to only use products that are plant-crafted and that's why I keep #weleda on deck at all times- they’re good for my skin and good for the planet. Check out this video to discover how connecting to my #InnerNature with @weleda_usa is my key to finding true balance. #ad
This year, I needed the @bahai fast. My spiritual and emotional bodies were crying for it. 174 B.E. was eye opening for my spirit. Because of the #everybodyyoga book tour and my material success, I was ushered into the lion’s den of Modern Yoga’s decadence and decay. And as I fasted, I stared at aspects of my professional life which have left me spiritually ravenous. Material success equates to so little of my overall being. It’s always lacking. No matter how much success is achieved, I’m hungry even though I’ve just eaten. There is never enough. There will never be enough. At what point does one stop eating when the food fails to provide sustenance? #yoga EDIT- YES I’m at @princeton_university’s Women’s Center tonight at 6pm- see you there!
