`The Yoga Within You’ Living Beyond The Mat Jenny Guzon-Bae, Author

Talk about a full-circle moment! Thirty-eight years ago, I had my words printed in this newsmagazine — primarily interviews with Bachelors and Bachelorettes of the Month. Saying that out loud makes me now laugh. If not for those early journalistic moments, though, I probably wouldn’t be able to mark these pages again to now share my journey and the publication of my first book, “The Yoga Within You: Living Beyond the Mat.”

Since you last read my ViaTimes features or saw me reporting on Chicago Philippine Reports TV, I’ve not only grown but have experienced so much. Real estate agent. Competitor on Survivor in 2006. Successful yoga instructor since 2007. Yoga retreat company owner in 2012. Empty-nester move to California in 2019, then to Arizona in 2021. Published author in 2024.

Teaching and practicing yoga has been my passion for nearly 20 years. I’ve extensively studied not only anatomy and physiology but also yoga wisdom and philosophy. Having contributed to many yoga teacher trainings in Chicago also lent to my expertise.

“The Yoga Within You: Living Beyond the Mat” is a collection of the wisdom talks I’ve written and shared in my classes over the years and on social media (@jennyogini). Presenting them in a tangible format allows readers to truly connect with the profound meaning behind the practice. Each talk is carefully crafted to inspire and stimulate contemplation, urging readers to explore the spiritual dimensions of yoga beyond the physical postures. By immersing in these talks, readers will develop a deeper understanding of the philosophy and purpose behind the practice, ultimately enriching their overall yoga experience. Each chapter offers profountd insights and practical wisdom on daily topics such as relationships, stress, self-care, and purpose.

That being said, you don’t have to be a yoga practitioner to understand this book. It’s a must-read for anyone seeking personal growth, inner peace, or a deeper understanding of themselves. It is a gentle reminder that the power to transform lies within each of us, waiting to be awakened.

“The Yoga Within You: Living Beyond the Mat” is available in hardcover and paperback on Amazon.
