We’ve got fun new stuff at Just B Yoga & Tai Chi LLC.


Looking for a last-minute gift for the holidays?

We’ve got a few things you might want to check out.


Gypsy wraps. These head wraps are stylish and functional. Keep the hair out of your eyes while you vinyasa and sop up some of that sweat. There are some large sizes coming in for my bigger brained students!

Giving thanks to you all

Our Thanksgiving yoga classes were amazing and an honor to have. I appreciate everyone who shared practice on Thanksgiving and some who just stopped by to say hello or contribute a donation (Monica even baked a pie!). We had folks from Onandaga, Owosso and even Chicago in the room! And we raised nearly $300. I have divided that up into thirds and am delivering the donation to two families today.

Giving Thanks Yoga classes at Just B

Lansing has seen some dark days but we don’t have to wear it. We can pick ourselves up. There’s a lot of spirit and love under the rough surface.

Just B has been blessed with students of all ranges of means, abilities and needs. The constant has been a human connection and cooperative spirit.

In honor of the gracious generosity of others and to express my deepest gratitude, Just B will hold two special Thanksgiving Day yoga classes at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. These will be 90-minute vinyasa classes. Two-thirds of the proceeds will go to help a Just B family in need. Bring a a donation and some food, or just some food.

Just vote

What really kicked my butt into gear was our president’s call for a “New Era of Responsibility.” This message resonated with me.

It will take time, but we can bring change to America. We can rebuild that lost trust and confidence. We can restore opportunity and prosperity. And we can bring about a new sense of responsibility among Americans from every walk of life and from every corner of the country.”

Open House Party a success!

I want to take a moment to thank everyone here and those who supported Just B for sharing in this dream. I say dream to reflect this current state, not one I’m seeing off in the future. We are living a dream and creating a dream. This effort is about community and collective energy.  It’s not about me. It’s not about any single person. It’s about us and what we believe we can do together – share yoga, all eight limbs with the entire community on a donation-basis. Make it open and available to the entire community for its health and healing. Pattabhi Jois said, “99% practice, 1% theory.” That wasn’t meant just for asana practice on the mat. It’s meant for the yoga we walk in life.

The Just B studio’s existence is evidence of that.

A mindful messagemobile

I had to stop in my tracks on the way to lunch at the Fleetwood Diner recently.


We’ve all found a bumper sticker or two that speak to us, that have just the right (or left) message. I like to call this car a mindful messagemobile. Every one of them is conscious, maybe a little cheeky, but all right on target.

YogaPaLooza, three free days of yoga in Lansing

For the last few years I’ve participated in an event I affectionately call “YogaPalooza.”
It’s the annual Hilltop Yoga Open House weekend. Three full days of free yoga. Honestly, I’ve felt close to enlightenment after several of these weekends with all the yoga I’ve done.
This year is the second year I’m honored to teach during this marathon of yoga. I will be teaching Saturday at 8:30 a.m., my normal time, and Sunday at 5:30 p.m., the class right before the FINALE with Hilaire. It’s like I’m the opening act for the Queen 🙂

Just B Yoga, Capital Gains, REO Town and what it’s all about

About a week ago Suban Nur Cooley from Capital Gains DM’d me on Twitter about writing an article Capital Gains about Just B. I was stoked. Lansing Area Capital Gains is an online magazine and web site showcasing the growth and investments transforming the Lansing region.

The article came out yesterday: Just B Yoga offering community classes in 650 sq ft REO Town space

I’m happy to be part of the buzz of REO Town lately. It’s nice to be in the latest spot that’s getting attention in Lansing. But I want to clarify a few things.

I didn’t plan this. This space came to me quite by accident or fate or however you want to see it.

Just B Halloween Open House

Come meet the Just B family and supporters and friends. Meet your neighbors. Play some games. Oct. 31, 4-8 p.m. Trick or Treat. Games. Prizes. Fun, fun, fun!  

Welcome Yogi Narayan and his Yoga Pranayama class

This Sunday Just B Yoga welcomed Yogi Narayan to the studio for his Yoga Pranayama class, a new weekly offering from 1-4 p.m. This is an amazing experience. Don’t let the three hours give you pause.

The class does light asana practice (postures) in the beginning for about an hour, then pranayama practices for a little more than an hour, and then meditation and questions.

The depth of his knowledge and the peacefulness of his spirit are a blessing to share.

Just B gets to know REO Town with old-fashioned shoe leather

Tuesday I took a few hours to walk around REO Town to hand out fliers and meet whomever I could meet. I can be really comfortable with putting out a quick blog, sending out a Tweet and updating my Facebook page, but that can give me a false sense of communication. It’s not interaction. It’s not connecting…so, it’s not yoga, right?
