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. Her mat has an instruction guide on it in case she forgets her postures. She also brought books with her, in case she needed

TGIF. What’s for lunch? Yoga!

Welcome to the first day of our lunchtime yoga class. Take a break in the middle of your week to get a smooth flow going, erasing the stresses of Snowpocalypse, snow days from school, shoveling and getting to work in hazardous conditions.

Why vote for Just B Yoga in the Top of the Town Awards?

I decided to poke around in the Top of the Town online contest held by the City Pulse to see if Just B was even a selection on any categories and Lo and Behold!

There we are under Best Services: Fitness/Health

Do I think Just B offers better fitness than some of the more established facilities listed there? No.

Do I respect and participate in activities in several of them like Hilltop Yoga and River View Fitness? Yep.

So why vote for Just B Yoga?


Parking, lunchtime and packing the house at Just B Yoga

We are honored to have wonderful neighbors in REO Town. For weekend and evening classes we can park at a parking lot on S. Washington near the RR Tracks. I hope the map below makes it clear where the studio and the parking is. During the Monday daytime class please use street parking. LUNCHTIME YOGA!!

Urgent news about parking at Just B Yoga

Dear students, As of today we are no longer allowed to park at 1375 S. Washington. Please DO NOT PARK THERE. I am making arrangements to lease space from Quality Dairy for their lot on Washington, just north of the studio. It’s the lot with the mural on it. We have unofficial permission from a

The Lowdown on Just B Yoga

Here it is! Just B Yoga & Tai Chi is featured in this week’s Lansing Lowdown, produced by LCC TV. Nicole features it as healthy resolution locations you can’t afford to miss! I think that’s cute. Healthy living should be accessible to all of us. Healthy mind, body and spirit. I’m so grateful for everyone

Things are getting better all the time

A Just B first

We had a record-breaking class at the Wednesday night free yoga class. We had 22 students in the studio for the class, at least four new faces.

We actually had to turn away two or three new students because there was no more room! I’m so sorry to them. Please come back and come early!

Amazing energy in the room. Lots of fun even though it was tight! 

A Canada goose plot? Takeover? Invasion?

This definitely seems like a LOT of geese. Are they plotting a takeover? They seem to be assembling large numbers. Is an invasion imminent? A precursor to a Canada geese Kamakazi die-off like the blackbirds down south and now the crabs?


2011: Breathe deeply, walk lightly, less is more

We want to reach out further into Lansing neighborhoods extending the message to more folks that we truly mean it – pay what you can, it doesn’t matter, but come and do something good for yourselves!

Now set the list of “dones and wanna-dos” aside. Because the real story is inside the spirits of the people who’ve connected through their yoga and tai chi practices.
