Facebook message to Just B Yoga: “…Also, in response to Thursday’s post, does the studio’s philosophy of diversity & inclusion extend to those who are non-political or who have alternative political views?

There is no perfect way to do a yoga posture

I don’t believe there is a perfect way to do a posture, or someone doing a posture perfectly. If I’m breaking some yoga commandment, so be it. It’s a part of the reason I don’t take a ton of pictures of me doing yoga. First of all, I don’t want it to be seen as

Yoga is all in my head

Most of my yoga practice is all in my head lately.   It starts off like this: I roll out my mat in my meditation room and feel the hips in a lunge, maybe a pigeon first off. My back has an argument with me. My left sacrum argues with me. My right rotator cuff

Yoga + Social activism = peanut butter and pickle sandwiches

I love Peanut Butter and Pickle Sandwiches. Initially, the mere mention of this combination would cause me to make a sour face.  I couldn’t comprehend how brine and peanuts could co-exist.  However, confusion and intrigue encouraged me to try one and I loved it. I think that I can say the same thing about Yoga

Social Action of/in/through Yoga

By Meghan McCullough, Just B Yoga teacher trainee Saturday, January 21st, 2017 was shaped, for me, by this animating question: What is the relationship binding social action and yoga? In the morning at Just B Yoga, B led us in an empowerment flow. On our mats, we moved and breathed to songs born of the
