Musicians answer the yoga call in Lansing

This yoga is awe-inspiring. What started as a potentially negative thing has turned into a musical movement, a community-building spark, an innovation motivation. Since writing last week that we would no longer play popular music because ASCAP wants us to pay licensing fees, we’ve been contacted by quite a few musicians and supporters. Yoga connects

Fundraiser yoga class to help yoga teachers skydive for sex abuse survivors

Yesterday I taught my first yoga class for teen survivors of childhood sexual trauma through the Free Being Yoga Network. I had only recently become public about my own experience as a child, being molested and penetrated by my mother’s boyfriend.

Who goes to donation-based yoga?

Who goes to Just B Yoga, Lansing’s donation-based yoga studio? The typical Just B Yoga student makes between $30,000 and $60,000, lives in Lansing, has at least a bachelors and if they’re a student now are likely working on a doctoral degree. They’re “queer, female-ish, transgendered and hetero.” They’re “mixed, biracial, white as shit, human.”

Just B Black History: Shaw Junior High School

I’ve decided this Black History Month to explore and honor my personal black history, as an extension of my mindfulness practice. I want my commemoration this month to be more than documentaries about key figures and moments in history chronicling slavery and the struggle for human rights. I want to honor those in my family
