Just B Yoga meets the Kings of Flint

Some stories just need to be told from the beginning. I dropped by the South Lansing Community Development Association office two Thursdays ago (Aug. 2). I needed to drop off some schedules for Jenelle who was kind enough to want to help promote Just B Yoga at their farmers market. We got to talking about

Kim Lewis: Emerging from a rough patch

Kim Lewis is a yoga instructor at Just B Yoga. She teaches 40+ Yoga and workshops on depression and yoga. I’m emerging from a rough patch. It’s been a few weeks since I dipped into depression, but I’m finding my way out now. And this experience has me questioning my yoga practice. After all, I

Finding your personal yoga practice

If you’ve practiced yoga for any period of time you’ve likely struggled with creating a home practice. We can eagerly book our personal calendars to attend classes around town to take from various teachers without hesitation.

Common Ground ticket giveaway revised

I went to my first Common Ground concert last night after living here since 2004, what a shame. I went to support a local artist, Lyric’Lee, who opened for Morris Day. It was a fabulous concert but I was most struck with the crowd. This was more than a concert. It was also a meeting

Emily White: When yoga finds you

I have been told that yoga finds you when the time is right. When my yoga finally found me, I felt a bit like Molly McGrue from “The Last Unicorn,” one of my all time favorite movies/books. “Where have you been?” Before the whiteness and the shining horn, Molly shrank to a shrilling beetle, but

Today’s gonna be my new birthday

May 19, 1992 (Malcolm X’s birthday) I was hired at my first newspaper and defined myself by the title of reporter and journalist. June 29, 2012 (Stokeley Carmichael’s (Kwame Toure) birthday) I carve a new identity, one that is my own, shining from within.   Happy birthday Malcolm, Kwame, Me.

It’s time

This week is bittersweet. Friday will be my last day in a newsroom. I say goodbye to a 20-year roller coaster ride of a journalism career that has taken me from D.C. to Pittsburgh to New York to Dallas to Michigan. I say goodbye to living by the pace of the news as it develops;

Just B Yoga Detour – the road to yoga!

Here’s the Just B Yoga Detour (instead of the Just B Yoga Tour which would be much more fun!) Washington Avenue is a mess! Yes, we know. Southbound traffic is closed. Yes – Sorry. How do we get to yoga? Do we quit? Do we turn to booze, drugs or at least donuts? NO!!! Take
