I decided to poke around in the Top of the Town online contest held by the City Pulse to see if Just B was even a selection on any categories and Lo and Behold!
There we are under Best Services: Fitness/Health
Do I think Just B offers better fitness than some of the more established facilities listed there? No.
Do I respect and participate in activities in several of them like Hilltop Yoga and River View Fitness? Yep.
So why vote for Just B Yoga?
We began almost a year ago with a notion to give free yoga to Lansing. With the generosity of the Shabazz Academy we began a Wednesday night free class in the gym. We grew from a handful of people and a pile of donated mats from friends. From this spark we’ve lit an amazing fire. This fall we were blessed to come to REO Town with our own modest studio space. This allowed Just B Yoga & Tai Chi LLC to be born with the motto: Community-Driven, Donation-based.
We’ve partied for Halloween. We celebrated Thanksgiving with special classes that raised money for needy families. We’ve even been Ninja’d!
We serve the underserved, the unemployed and even the homeless. Students bike, walk and bus to class. Younger, older, every color and creed.
We do all of this through you. You are the force behind Just B. Every student, every helper, every supporter.
So a vote for Just B Yoga is a vote for yourselves, for Lansing and its spirit. It would be a vote for our mission of making healthy modalities affordable and accessible for everybody. It would be a #LoveLansing virtual hug.
(It would also be an AWESOME birthday present. Deadline to vote? Feb. 1 – B’s birthday.)
