Catching up with Just B, May 4

Well, Mother Nature had another idea about the April 24 Earth Day Lansing event. It was cold and wet but Yoga Lansing for the Earth kept going. Yogis bundled up in fleece, socks and other layers. We practiced smile-asana and had fun.

Just B’s Earth Day letter

Dear Earth, Forgive us. Be patient as we heal ourselves in order to heal you. May you get well and be well.

Yoga Lansing for the Earth, April 24

Several yogis around Lansing will work together on April 24 to teach yoga at the Capitol steps for Lansing’s Family Eco Fest, an Earth Day Lansing event. We’re calling it Yoga Lansing for the Earth. By honoring our planet we honor ourselves. Take a moment to reflect on your yoga practice and your daily activities and their impacts on the earth.

A whiskey shot drinking contest for breast cancer?

Let’s cure breast cancer with an event that encourages drinking shots of whiskey? Apparently Lansing has voted and breasts outrank livers in the bodypart poll. We must be making the choice to support this event based on our eyes finding breasts more visually appealing than livers.

Why teach yoga for free?

Yoga has inspired me to explore the definition of community and sangha, the foundation of my asana practice and the possibilities of my heart. Some popular yoga studios can leave you empty, confused and in doubt about the depth of yoga. Are you there for a posture contest? Is it supposed to be a popularity club or high school clique? The intentions of Patanjali’s sutras are lost in the chic sheen of fashionable yoga, tweety bodies and trendy accessories.

Just B informed, April 5

We practiced mysore at our own pace at 6 a.m. this morning. No chatting. No instructions. Just a room full of breath.
Two people practicing in silence at sunrise is a big step toward cultivating my home practice.

New things, new day, new possibilities

Just B Yoga. Open community yoga is going to start on April 14. Please spread the word. Yoga is an amazing practice that can help bring healing and healthy living to Lansing.

Yoga mat donations needed

Hey Lansing! Just B the E

EarthDayLansing will bring cool events for Earth Day (April 22) to Lansing (concerts, gallery walks, festivals) and it’s part of a bigger effort around the country. Hungry for more I reached out to Erin Slayter one of the coordinators of Earth Day Lansing, with her husband Ben. “Be the E is a call to action that evokes Gandhi’s plea to ‘be the change you want to see in the world.’
