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

All are welcome at Just B Yoga, even if you voted for Trump

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? I presume the answer is yes… (Alternative, as in alternative to yours.)” Of course my answer was yes. And this blog post could

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

That’s how I feel when in the presence of his hang drum (hand pan) and didjeridoo. That’s what I wanted to help people feel and
