Let’s celebrate our first anniversary

It’s been an exciting time and a scary time. It sounds so cliche but it is hard to think we have been open for an entire year. The myriad of faces and smiles that have swept through our doors and sweated on our mats is overwhelming. The range of friendships that have grown is wonderful.

Happy Anniversary Anna

Anna Kaschner is a teacher at Just B Yoga. We love her smooth teaching style, so calming and restorative. She’ll never make you face your edges with a sharp-edged sword. She lets you take the baby steps you need to creep to the edge and take a peek over it. Anna is also one of
