Just say no to on-the-go yoga

Slow down. That’s the theme of our Monday night Yin Yoga with Donnielle and the Restorative Yoga class on Tuesday nights with Heather. Slow DOWN. Everything doesn’t have to be GO, GO, GO Why would we want to take that attitude with us on the yoga mat if that’s what we face every second off

What am I supposed to feel in my yoga?

“What am I supposed to be feeling?”   This is a common question in yoga classes. What am I supposed to be feeling in this pose? In my body? What is it supposed to feel like? What “should” it be like, feel like?   And quite honestly, the best answer I feel any teacher can

Recently I’ve come to realize just how much that practice influences my relationship to yoga asana. My sequencing is fluid. My steps

Distracted Peace: Yoga and meditation amidst the noise

The yoga mats are full of silent, almost sleeping students. The soft breathing marks the stillness. The scent of sage and sandalwood waft through the room. Then the thunderous rumble of big rig tires and hydraulics go past the front window. Or the sound of a dog barking, its claws scurry back and forth come

What is Juicy Yoga?

Yoga Sutra 2.46 – SukhaSthiraAsanam: Posture practice should embody steadiness/strength/stability and ease/joy/comfort.   When you find that space of steadiness and ease, then you’ve truly found the Juicy part of your practice!

Placid effort

Stillness is a practice that can evade, elude and still entrance. This past weekend I had the blessing of a private beach camping experience . It was a long overdue vacation. The weather was clear albeit chilly. Restoration would be mine! I was actively planning my nothing time. I was going to immerse in this

Best in Michigan: Just B Yoga

The day-to-day life of running the studio and teaching can feel like the work grind that my students arrive at the studio complaining about at the end of the day. And just like everyone else’s “job” inspiration can wane. Not that I ever forget what we’re doing at Just B Yoga – providing yoga and

The ‘how-to’s’ of a donation-based yoga studio

I get contacted a lot about our donation-based model. Sometimes it’s from the media, like Mindful Studio magazine. Reporter Kaitlyn Clay interviewed Just B Yoga about the pros and cons in her article “Opening a donation-based yoga studio.” I honestly forget sometimes that we are donation-based and that it’s novel for some. It’s become such
