Just B and the Yoga Refuge Co-op connection

A few months ago I ran into a non-profit yoga organization in Colorado called the Yoga Refuge Co-op trolling on the internet. The founder and I struck up email and Facebook niceties and well-wishes. I had no idea it would blossom into a beautiful interstate relationship that would offer opportunities to live our yoga practices

I want to thank….

In true Academy Award fashion I can see myself at the podium: “I want to thank my mother, my brother, my dog (may she rest in peace), my cats, my fish, my first grade teacher Mrs. Garcia….Oh and #LOVELANSING!” Folks, this has been an amazing day, week, month…you pick. And it’s all because of you

Community: There is no try, only do

It has taken me decades of life and arriving in Lansing after working at more than six newspapers to truly feel and be a part of community. This isn’t a gratuitous #lovelansing moment (although I love you guys, and you know that). I hope it’s a touch deeper.

Tonight’s the night! Our Wednesday yoga class is moving to Art Alley at 6 p.m. We’re practicing yoga to DJ Rachael and we’re gathering afterward with food from Feed Your Karma. This special 2-hour class is about celebrating and giving back to the community. The drive to give back comes from a lot of places.

The Free Community class will now rotate to different locations around town.

Lansing Derby Vixens: WINNING

What’s worth a drive to Flint on a Sunday night? A pack of knee-pad, mouthguard-wearing girls in pink and green.

The Lansing Derby Vixens are one of Lansing’s roller derby teams. The Vixens have been coming to Just B for yoga training.

Well, some of the Just B Yoga family went to support the team and check out what derby is all about. First, some lovely people I’ve come to know as Sarah and Jen are transformed into “Mullicious Intent” and “Gluteus Maxine.”

 

Roller Derby-Yoga Fusion? Hmmmm…

I like to think I’m kind of a bad ass (or have been at least, in my day). I played rugby in high school (one of two pioneering women on a male team!) I played rugby when I was in college for the Pittsburgh Women’s Rugby League (our T-shirt said No Balls at All) I

Meet the youngest Just B Yogi

Meet Aurora. Aurora joined our community free yoga class Wednesday night. She came prepared, like any good yogini. She rolled out her yoga mat, complete with unicorn, Barbie and Teddy bear.
